I'm jealous.  I don't really get to leave.  I just get a more flexible schedule... supposedly.

We're the ones to be jealous, Tony.  You've already got some experience in the legal field, and have a nice paying summer job lined up.  Its most of the rest of us who have to stand in line to suck up to the Law Firm reps who come and give speeches and information sessions at campus.  :)

I keep hearing (from other classes, so it's not too terribly biased) that because we're at 35% out-of-staters this year, our class is full of uber-geniuses (felsen, margee, etc.) that are gonna rock out the school.

I'm an in-stater, Deuces.  If I'm one of the uber-geniuses, then section 1 is in trouble.  I'm sure they slotted me into that section as a middle to end of the pack person.

Personally, I'm not doing anything until Orientation day.  I'm waiting for them to actually tell us to mess with tuition.  Then I'll be there at the school and can hang out in the Financial Aid office all day if necessary.

Just wait till next year.  I plan on single-handedly being able to pull the rankings down a few notches.  Hello Law School Knitting Club!  ;)

I just went on campus today to use the facilities.  RSC is closed for the intersemester break (according to the website) so I went to Gregory.  Our student IDs do get us past the guard on the way in.  I can see why folks would line up to get a permanent locker.  They have very few day use lockers, so you have to get a permanent one if you want to use a locker at the facilities.  I'll have to check out the RSC to see which one I'll prefer to use.

The Gregory Gym looked respectable.  It is a bit closer to the middle of campus, so I can understand that being the more frequented gym.  It looks like they're both about the same distance from the Law School, though.  It was around a 15 minute walk from the San Jacinto garage.  That's almost enough to convince me to park a bike on campus just for commuting back and forth between the garage and gym.  :)

I haven't owned a console in about 13 years.  I've been solely computer based since then for my gaming pleasures.  My wife has tried to prevent me from installing games on my laptop, though.  She has succeeded so far because I cannot find the installation disks for many of my games, just the play disks.  :(

Unless that little more down lowered the loan % even more, I'd personally just keep as much money on the low % car loan as possible.  This all depends on the % you get, and whether you have stocks/bonds/CDs that can outperform the loan rate, of course.  You can get CDs for 5+% right now, so any loan you can get for cheaper than that I'd stick the excess at least in a CD and come out a bit ahead.

Note, that for car loans, I'd probably still choose to get a loan for the car, since you can typically find someplace to get good interest rates (3% range) on a new car.  That's even lower than everything except the Staffor subsidized loan (where the government pays for the interest till you gradaute).

I'm doing the fiscally responsible thing by taking out as many government supported loans as I possibly can.  I either get to pay for school with borrowed money at low interest rates, or I have to tap my life savings.  I'm betting that the stock market will perform better than the nominal interest rates on the government loans.

I'm waiting on the new car till after I graduate.  Unfortunately, by then it will probably be a mini-van for my wife.

Today is finally my last day.  I can already sense the impending doom as Orientation approaches.
