Incoming 1Ls / Filing Taxes Online
« on: January 31, 2005, 10:41:17 AM »
For a recent graduate with less than $10000 in earnings, what is the best online tax filing service? Has anyone else filled out their taxes online yet? I know the IRS website has a list of free online tax companies but I wanted to know which are the easiest to fill out.

I think it is getting riduculous that Pookie hasn't heard back from these three yet. Maybe its just a formality but they need to get on the ball here. They are probably waiting on Pookie's first move, but I am getting frustrated with this  >:((and it's not even my decision)! I think we should sign this thing and email it HYS so we can get the ball rolling here. I'll start...


Acceptances, Denials, and Waitlists / Houston Waitlist
« on: January 24, 2005, 04:28:41 PM »
Just got waitlisted at Houston. Though I am happy with Baylor (and would actually choose them over Houston) I don't know why I was waitlisted. According to Houston, they take the higher LSAT (giving me a 158/3.76). According to Chiashu I have a 78% chance and the LSAC table had 105/126 students get in with my stats. I don't think getting in at Baylor is making me cocky, but what the heck! I know that this isn't a yield protection waitlist. I actually thought I might have gone in with some scholarship money. Oh well.

General Off-Topic Board / Attention DC and major Northern city residents:
« on: January 22, 2005, 09:35:15 PM »
I recently moved from Texas to DC a few months ago and, as you know, today was a "snow emergency." Well I live on Pennsylvania Avenue and had my car parked in front of my building. Well I went to my car and found a 250 dollar ticket! Now I know it is important to keep the streets cleared when there is a winter emergency, but I received the ticket at 10 AM (when there was only 3 inches of snow on the ground). I was lucky to not have been towed, but I think that I should have just gotten a warning or a ticket that wasn't 250 bucks (parking in a handicap is less). I want to contest this ticket but I wanted to get feedback here and see if anyone else here had a ticket and what was the result if they contested it. Now I do realize that ignorance of the law is not a valid excuse and that it is my civic duty to learn the local traffic laws, but there weren't any "winter emergency" signs that I have seen when I was in NYC. Plus, I don't know how you know you are in a winter emergency (I checked on CNN this afternoon and there was only a winter warning, nothing was said about an emergency). I plan on taking pictures of the signs and I have a clean driving record, but I don't know what I should really state in the letter. I was planning on mentioning the fact I just moved here, the lack of a sign, and the time at which the ticket was given. This is bunk, the whole city of DC just shut down with 5 inches of snow on the ground. I have seen more snow in Texas and we don't shut down the city.

General Off-Topic Board / The Fate of the HIPPO!
« on: January 22, 2005, 09:01:45 PM »
Well if you are unfamilar with my situation, this is the second year of applying to law school. A while ago, I had a caption that read "Gonna keep on spanking it till I get into law school." Well I got into Baylor Law and want to know if I should do with the avatar. I do have a new avatar, but it is no where as humorous as the Dancing Hippo. Voting will last for one week so cast your vote!

OMG I'm gonna be a lawyer!  ;D  :o  ;D

I'd like to thank the academy, my family, and all the little people on LSD! I don't think I could have lasted without you!  :'( ;)

Oh and my stats are 150/158 and 3.76. White, blonde hair, blue eyed, middle class male, from Texas (can't get any non-URM than that LOL). This is what sex must be like  :D

Fade to R. Kelly's "I believe I can Fly"....and yes I just got that song stuck in your head  ;D

Just wondering. I think its stupid to fight this on a day celebrating someone who helped end segregation. I will now step off my soap box for the next bleeding heart... ::)

Acceptances, Denials, and Waitlists / Minnesota EA hold-up?
« on: January 11, 2005, 04:59:35 PM »
Someone PMed me asking me if I received a letter from Minnesota. I completely forgot that they sent an email saying that a decision would be received in the first week of January. Is anyone else still waiting? I kinda asked them to defer me (told them via email that an extra LOR would be coming in because LSAC screwed up) but didn't think they would actually hold off on my application.

Acceptances, Denials, and Waitlists / Think I am getting a double-whammy

My roommate just contacted me to let me know that I got a small envelope from Baylor Law and a psudo eviction from the head of the house I am at...trying to decide on what's worse. Not a good time to be me at the moment....not like there was ever a good time ;)

General Off-Topic Board / Attention DC Residents: Inauguration
« on: January 07, 2005, 07:09:20 AM »
I know this is WAAAY off topic, but I know that there are a number of people on this board from the DC area.
Well I really had two things to ask:

1) Anyone know how to get or have an extra ticket to the inauguration? I actually like Bush (yes I know, **boo hiss comments, explative, explative ** please don't berate me ;) oh and if you are reading this Pookie, please don't hate me, it's this damn Texas pride) especially since I am from his hometown (well at least Laura's) and will probably the only time I get to go to an event like this. Basically I will happily take a ticket off anyone's hand who really hates Bush and doesn't plan on using the ticket to assasinate Bush.

2) If not, how bad is communting around all the activities? I live a few blocks from the Capitol and work in Georgetown, plus I go to work later 9:30AM and will probably be traveling during the massive rush of people heading towards the Capitol.
