Incoming 1Ls / Re: Moving
« on: May 11, 2007, 06:55:05 PM »
My orientation starts August 17, so I'm hoping to Move Aug. 3rd.  Making the transition from Florida to Iowa.  I'm leaving all my wordly possessions home and pretending to "camp" for 3 yrs.  And by camp, I just mean like bringing the basics with you, clothes etc., and buying things when you get there. :-\  Anyone else doing this?

I'm not quite sure what to do about this. :-\ ... I was lucky to find a place to live that is partially furnished. So I dont have to bring a bed, kitchen table, or couches. But I still need a desk, chair, night stand, book case, dishes, sheeets, etc. I'm taking my car, so I have to drive an Accord from Texas to DC. Can I even think of attaching a U-Haul-like thing to the back of such a small car? Or do I have to settle for taking just what I can fit in one of those overhead thingies? Should I just buy new stuff when I get there? Seems silly if I've already got the stuff!

You'd have to get a tow-hitch installed on your car, or you could rent a uhaul (actually penske's cheaper, but you know what I mean) and tow your car. That's probably what I'll be doing if I get into UCLA. I think I'll buy new stuff if I go out to Chicago, though.

I thought about towing the car, but omg how much would it suck to drive a truck halfway across the country? That, I could deal with, though. Biggest problem is probably BOTH my parents want to come along for the ride and I dont know about all of us in the truck...

Studying for the LSAT / Re: False Hope?
« on: May 11, 2007, 09:47:52 AM »
1. I can't give you an real answers about whether the jump in scores is "valid" because frankly there's just no way to measure - from how much you really remembered/didn't remember, to whether seeing the same questions reduced some of the stress, to, well, a million other factors. However, you can't get a good estimate of what score you're testing at until you take several tests and they all fall within the same range.

2. That said, I think it's DEFINITELY worth studying for the LSAT and having every hope of getting a good score. I would say this if you had started with a 145 or a 157. Starting with a 157 just makes it a bit less of an uphill battle. But you have a YEAR - that's plenty of time.

3. So to address your question, "Does this new score give me any hope?" -- I think it's a moot point.

i drive a french model. a morceau de merde :P


*giggle* :D

I have a Honda Accord.

Not a POS I take it?

Oh, I wasn't laughing at Rev's POS -- just at his way of declaring it!

Or - were you asking if *my* car is a POS? It's not, as I am unfortunately reminded every month when it's time to make the car payment. Booo.

School starts Aug 15, I plan on being there by Aug 1. Possibly 3 days earlier, depending on a few things.
