Yes, AES sent you that envelope (if it is the same one that I am thinking of) on behalf of Duquesne's financial aid dept. I got the same one about a month ago, and have since returned the enclosed forms (i think it is the note for the loan if I remember correctly and other info documents...). Once you return it, AES quickly confirms your loan amount, etc.
On the other topic, I am thinking about staying in Pittsburgh after graduation....since, it is obviously a better recruiting area for our school... and after some years, I might move...who knows! But from first impression, i really enjoy Pittsburgh and hope to for some time to come.

I was curious as to when we would receive info about classes,summer reading, etc.... so I called the admissions office yesterday and was told that they are working on the info this week, and it should be mailed out in the coming weeks.... it was kinda an open-ended answer, but an answer none-the-less.
As for the computers - try this link:http://www.cts.duq.edu/content_pages/students/s_store/s_store_overview.html

That is good to hear about the weather. I guess I'll be investing in a heavy coat soon...
Thanks again for the info and best of luck.

Thanks for posting all of that info about the city.... it's nice to get personal feedback about the city v. some impersonal opinon I read in a travel magazine about Pittsburgh.
I'm moving from a fairly warm weather-ed climate ..and know nothing about Pittsburgh weather. Will you talk more about the weather in the winters, etc. if you get a chance??

I'd say to take the course - but with reserve. I took the Kaplan LSAT course last September *for the october LSAT* and my teacher for the course was a medical student. Granted, she obviously took a LSAT ..but never took the offical one, so she was clueless as to how the test is administered. She often found herself saying "i dunno" to most questions. Just make sure you get a good teacher for the course. I think I would have had a larger benefitfrom the course if I had a better teacher.

I am also attending Duquesne in the fall.
About myself: I am 21 years old, and graduated with a 3.8 GPA. I double majored in English (writing concentration) and political science, and also minored in criminal justice.
So far, Iíve had a good experience dealing with Duquesne. I also received a phone call from the dean about my acceptance, and also had a lot of attention when my parents and I made a visit to the school. I was more assured of my decision to attend after the visit to campus. Iím not at all familiar with the area, but from what Iíve seen Ė the school and area seems to hold a lot of potential. Itís great to hear that the school has a good reputation in the area.
Joshdelight- Iíve read about another student questioning if there might be some tension between the main school and the law school, so your problem is not the first apparentlyÖ. I agree that the financial aid department and the law school should have better communications. Let us know how that works out.
Good luck to everyone else

Hanes Mall, Downtown Winston in the Summer, several lakes in the area, Greensboro 30 mins from Wake, the mountains are an hour from Winston Salem (skiing, etc.), you can be at the outerbanks in roughly 5/6 hours....etc. Tell me what kind of things your're interested in, and I can better explain to you what Winston has.....

Jackie- UNC-C is actually a fairly decent school in NC, and you should be able to do well in getting into a good law school *provided that you have a good LS score*. I'm from NC, also..I took a years worth of CC courses during my senior year of high school (from several different CC - Surry, Wilkes and Guilford Tech), then went to college in NC for 3 yrs... and am now on my way to law school, with a scholarship.

Jacy85 - I'm from NC....Winston Salem, actually...and I'm very very familiar with Raleigh and Charlotte. The law schools in NC range from Duke & Wake Forest to UNC, to the lower scaled Campbell University (Buies Creek, NC ...literally in the middle of a corn field) and North Carolina Central in Raleigh. I would highly highly recommend Chapel Hill and Charlotte to anyone, and for that matter, Winston Salem as well. Each city has great little areas for diversity, etc...great downtowns...and the locations of Charlotte and Winston are close to the mountains (snow skiing) or water skiing & boating (Lake Norman, about 20-30 minutes from Charlotte)..
Elon University is actually planning to open up a law school in Greensboro in the coming years, the location was already been established. I also know that UNC-Charlotte has also applied for a law school charter.
