General Board / Re: What the hell are schools in New Orleans doing?
« on: August 31, 2005, 03:15:57 AM »
I just came here to post the same question.  I'm a 2L at Loyola and as of right now, their emergency line stated the school hasn't received extensive damage, but has to wait until the city is habitable and we have utilities.  I have heard that Dillard University and Xavier University (undergrad schools in New Orleans) have cancelled this semester.

But what happens with us??  Does anyone from the Florida schools who were hit previously have info on what they did for you?  I heard a rumor they would transfer us to LSU or Louisiana Southern, but where would we live?  Would we have the same profs?  Yikes, so scary!

Loyola - New Orleans / Who is attending this fall?

I'm about to move there from Atlanta myself.  I'm apartment hunting right now and hoping I find a nice, affordable place.  Who else is moving there?

Law School Applications / Re: Third Tier Law schools aren't bad

I think networking and the career services office are more important than rankings.  I also think it depends on the alumni's loyalty to the school.  I have spoken with a number of alums who said they come looking to the school when they want to hire before ever posting the position anywhere else.

Where should I go next fall? / Re: Atlanta vs. Dallas

I can't really give you info on the career prospects since I have yet to graduate and look for a job in the legal field.  I know there are a lot of big companies in ATL, as Coyote mentioned, and I didn't anyone who had trouble finding a job.  Not like that's a concrete answer, but it's as much as I know.

As for safety, I was a single female living in the city and I never once felt unsafe.  If you're going to Geogia State I probably wouldn't recommend living too close to the school.  And then the question is how important a yard is to you.  Not too many nicer homes near Georgia State - a lot of great condos, especially in midtown.  Most are a bit pricey.  But if you don't mind commuting a bit, there are so many great areas and a lot of them quite affordable.  Cobb county (Kennesaw and some parts of Marietta) is a great area for kids and families.  Good schools, too.  But this is if you're willing to commute a bit.  Paulding county has really low property tax which is attractive, but it's a fairly long commute. 

Are you looking for homes, apartments or condos? 

As for things to do... infinite possibilities.  I was talking to one of my best friends who is from Dallas and we were comparing things to do in ATL v. Dallas and from our conversation ATL was the winner.  That's especially true in the music arena.  Seems like you had better love country music in Dallas.  And judging from our conversation there seemed to be more lounges and not just bars in ATL.  What I mean is a pseudo-bar where you can actually sit and talk with others.  One of my favorites is Compound that just opened up last spring.  www.compoundatl.com  It's great because there's live music in the outside club, a non-smoking club and then there's a 3rd club where it's smoking.  It's like 3 clubs in one!  Actually there's a 4th one, too, but I've only been there once for a party - you have to rent it.

And since you have kids, you can't beat Piedmont Park (not too far from Georgia State.)  And since you're from up north you might even feel at home in the outdoor ice skating rink they put up in Centennial Park every winter.  I don't have kids, but I did Big Brothers Big Sisters when I lived there and there were so many kid's fairs, shows and events to choose from. 

Does that answer some of your questions / concerns?

Good info Coyote. 

And TexasTiger, if you're going to Buckhead - nickname Thughead - no wonder you don't like ATL.  I don't think it's fair for someone to make a judgment about the city as a whole when they don't actually live there.  Noone who lives in ATL goes to Buckhead anyways.

I'm not into sports, but I know ATL has professional football, basketball,  hockey, baseball, soccer and I think indoor football teams so there's always something to do.  Plus, ATL has far better concert venues and attracts more musical genres.

But the real question is what are you looking for in a city???

My taste in cars change constantly, but for right now I like the Infiniti G35 coupe in ocean blue.  So I'll take that and a closet full of Manolos and Choos! 

One of my girlfriends has that car...VERY NICE.

Oooh, lucky her.  I just LOVE those cars.  What color is hers?

Naval Aviator, the fakes may seem real to you, but anyone who truly knows the lines knows when it's a fake.  For instance, I've seen so many people with the white Louis Vuitton Murakami in the cylinder shape.  Sure they might look real - excpet for the fact that LV never made the white Murakami in that style.  True, that most people wouldn't know which is real or fake, but there are also lots of people who would know.  Besides, they last soooooooo much longer.

Ladies, who is that designer that is making the new leather bag that almost looks like a layered skirt?  It has layers of leather ruffles almost.  Sounds ugly, but I think they're kind of fun.

Dsong, did you buy it as a preowned??  Is it a 60 minute bezel or a 24 hour bezel??  (the numbers on the bezel)

Changing the sticker on the GMT is not a problem at all.  And yes, it is a simple sticker that costs all of 50 bucks and then you have to re-register the watch with the new colors listed so Rolex has track of it.  But a Sub can only have black and black only.  The only thing I can guess is that maybe they put a GMT sticker on it or it's a vintage version that I dont' know about.

stainless GMT
all black
red and black
red and blue

the one with the brown and gold isn't available on a stainless GMT - only one with gold in it (don't like it)

Now if I were to get a Rolex I think I would go with the stainless / platinum Yachtmaster.  But I don't think I'll ever get one.  My next watch will be the Breitling Callisto with diamond bezel (they're better made watches than Rolex anyhow.)
