ok ruskie I deserved it. That was the second worst game A&M had this year. Congrats to your Vols that Clausen kid looked good. Got a bright future for yalls program that is for sure! I wish the Aggies would have played up to there potential though it would have been a much better game. Even at there best though I don't think they could have overcame the speed Ten. defense had. There is always next year!

To the original question. Buy an IBM T series. I have a T40 at work and have had it for almost 2 years. This thing is awesome. I lug it to meeting after meeting to the house etc and have never had a problem even after beating it to hell. I bought a T42 for school off of EBAY a couple of months ago and I love it! I found it cheaper on ebay than IBM employee purchase price(it was new in box as well). Plus I got a 3 year warranty and no taxes!I payed $1400 for it. One diff between T and R series is what they are made of. The R is plastic and the T is magnesium which is lighter and more durable.I have 512 of ram and that suits me fine. I really can't tell the different between my work T40 1.3g  512 and personal 1.7g 512. I have yet to really slow down my work one either and that is running oracle, access, about 5 excel files a few explorer windows and lotus notes if this won't slow it down I can't imagine anything you would need in law school will slow it down. 512 of ram should be plenty.

I got into STCL for the spring. I have not heard anything from UofH and since they only have a fall admissions I am too impatient to wait. I will have to pay double at STCL than I would at UofH, but it is to big a gamble to wait and find out about UofH. I doubt I would have been admitted there anyway. So South Texas it is in 4 weeks!. It was such short notice I have not even recieved my letter yet. They called me and told me, then gave me the login for the admitted students site so I could download my registration package to mail in. Do you work at a software company in Austin?

I too am done. I start in the spring semester so I only have 2 weeks left. I turned in my notice today. I found out on Tuesday (it's now friday) It has been fun though. In two short days I told off a vice president,several division managers, and a couple of coworkers. As soon as I found out I pulled out the figurative can of gasoline and have not just burned bridges but have BLOWN them away. in an all hands meeting with 2000 people I told off the Vice President of our plant (let me tell you vice pres. of fortune 500 company's don't like to be told off in front of a whole factory) I received a hero's welcome afterwards though. People thought I had lost my mind. We are having layoffs coming up so I was trying to get on the layoff list. (The severance package would be enough to pay for my first year) Unfortunately word got out so now that they know I am leaving there is no way they will give me a package. It has been fun trying to get laid off though. I can't seem to totaly slack off  because I like my boss and my group and anything I don't do they have to pick up the slack on. I am just ready to go though that is for sure. At least I am going out in a blaze of glory, I think my comments to the VP in the all hands meeting will be talked about for years here! I have said things I have wanted to say for 5 years.....FREEDOM!!!

I got the call today and I am going to be a lawyer!!!!! Thanks for everyone on this board answering question, helping w/ LSAT/ etc... This is the best day ever! I start in 1 month. I have to quit my job, move what I need into inlaws house in Houston and get financial aid squared away so I can pay the mortgage here in Austin, Busy busy

Acceptances, Denials, and Waitlists / Re: 3rd or 4th tier Acceptances?

I Applied to St. Mary's and South Texas (for spring) South Texas starts in a month and I have not heard anything. I called them and asked when I could expect to hear something. They told me within two weeks. I hope it is soon because I have to turn in my notice here at work and get set up in Houston. I am not ashamed to be "hoping" to get accepted to a tier 4 school. After graduation and passing the bar I will be an attorney just like a Harvard graduate. I am just thankful that there are opportunities for non-academic superstars such as myself to study and eventually practice law

I can identify with every word of that. From the Too old, and coworkers acting like jerks, to the "sober addendum" part. Man what a great one! I could not have done better if i had been writing it about myself, (except I only have 1 little boy).

Here comes the cotton baby!
Beat The Hell Out of Tennessee! Whoop! Ruskie's Vols are going down.
Gig Em Aggies!
Sorry I am just so stoked we are headed for cotton, Man what a great day. The only thing that would make it better is if I heard back from UofH or South Texas. I guess you can't have it all.
Maroonout are you going to the game? I am going to College Station in 2 weekends for graduation, my little brother is graduating. Have not been since the Oklahoma game. Dallas here I come Jan. 1st Whoop!

24 Although I like my life now just fine 24 was good times. I feel so damn old now. I think kids are what really ages you, and a house and all the trappings of a perfect life. It's not perfect without a cost. What is the price you ask? Your youth is the toll you pay. That is why I can't wait to go back to school I can take a small loan of "youth" out for three years.
