I'm still unpacking, too.  It's pretty overwhelming- most my stuff came out of a year in storage.  I really would rather be enjoying my last week without reading assignments on my mind.

To everybody else who is also unpacking- hang in there, there IS a floor beneath that mess, somewhere...

I'm baaack.... ;D

And now located in Denver, USA!  Feels pretty good!

Just pulled my DU Dell out of it's box- I just NOW had time to open it.  It wouldn't boot.  Called Dell- they just told me to do a hard re-boot. Now I'm worried I'll get that blue screen of death in the middle of class, or worse, an exam. :-[

 I'm typing this post on my Powerbook- really reluctant to use the Dell.

On to a happier subject-
For anybody out there who skis, snowboards (nice avatar Cesco!) or telemarks, count me in!!

Back to evidence studying, my god this test is going to be the hardest yet in law school for me. :( Its FOUR frekin hours, closed book, must memeorize all rules, my skeleton outline is 40 pages, 40 pages I need to memorize.  ::)

Matthies- I'm cheering for you and your memorization skills. :)

Oh, I'd DEFINATELY go and get your computer stuff done before orientation.  Of all the people I've encountered at here, I'd have to say they are the snobbiest (lack of better word)...they make you feel like an inconvenience.  Get that stuff done now or else you maybe without your laptops for a few days.
Glad I decided just to buy a Dell and not push them on the Mac issue.

I just got of the phone with Julie Spradley and she stated she sent out an email a week or two ago outlining the process for applying for the GradPlus loan to our DU Law email accounts.  I never received this so I had her send it again (I wonder what other important emails I'm missing from DU).  If you need this email just let me know and I'll send it over to you.

Don't feel bad.  I didn't get the GradPlus email either- had to contact them and request it.

Thanks!  I'm printing your list now...

I got a good one the other day...

Having spent the better part of the last month with my face crammed in my LSAT prep books, I was out to dinner with my GF the other day and we got into some inane debate about some political issue.  After awhile, she got really sullen and pissed off looking and, when I asked what was wrong, she said "are you using your law school stuff on me?"  I was kind of stunned and gave the usual "what are you talking about?" that us men use to exacerbate an already bad situation.  "Well, you've been studying all that law school stuff.  Are you using what you've been learning to practice or something or make me feel dumb?" 

I really did not know how to explain to her that my time spent working on logic puzzles has nothing to do with being a pompous a-hole...that's something you're born with  :P

 :o Um...I don't know how to say this, but if she feels this way when you are just doing logic problems, what is she going to say when you really are in LS?  Your debate skills will only get better (or at least that's the idea...)

Thanks for clearing that up about the 3%.  It sure would be nice if it was a 3% reduction AFTER they waived the 3% origination fee! ;D

And for those of you that are looking at their website now and thinking I am an idiot - they completely reworded the "repayment" section under GradPlus as a result of my concern!!

way to go cesco!    :D

Has anyone been able to tell if College Invest has any origination fee?  Myrichuncle says it has a "3% origination fee as determined by federal law." 

So is College Invest, with their 3% principal discount at disbursement, basically just waiving that fee?

Also has anyone figures out how to apply for the GradPlus loan?  On the Sallie Mae website I tried to apply but University of Denver wasn't listed so I called and they said to speak  with DU because they were a direct lender.  When I called DU they said they were going to send out an email last week about applying for the GradPlus loan but I haven't seen anything yet.  Anyone have and ideas?

I just sent DU an email asking how to apply for the loan.  It feels like it's getting kind of late in the game, doesn't it?
