Get married and tell your wife to get a job.  Gives health insurance, freedom from the LS dating scene, and no student loans!  win/win!

I don't trust anyone that wont take a drink with me... Try a watered down wine, or a tonic water, even just cranberry juice that give the appearance you're relaxing.  Don hide the type of drink either.  I'll suspect you're getting me drunk to take advantade of me.  Really You don't actually have to drink it. No one cares, just hold it.

I don't drink either, so I'm in the some boat with Jillie.  I was thinking I'd either get something that looks like alcohol or get alcohol and just sip it now and then.   8)

I called in and switched my order from the integrated to the discrete graphics.  I figure if I'm going to use the thing for 3 years I can get 20 bucks/year of use out of a better graphics system.

I just picked up one of those T61's on TTT Splitter's shareholder pricing, thanks man!  I like how IBM doesn't charge shipping.  Very nice of them.

Mine ended up being right at 1300 pre-tax and like 1404 post-tax.

Are there any studies backing up this Thinkpad fanboyism I'm seeing?  Not that I'm biased either way, I'd just like to get more data on the issue.

Law School Admissions / Re: Undergrad GPA vs LSDAS GPA

Is there anyway to calculate your LSDAS GPA, or do you just have to wait until LSAC gets your transcripts and figures it for you?

Take every class you ever took, and average the grades together, including grade replacements (LSDAS doesn't buy into it), pass/fails do not count if you pass, but count as F's if you fail, etc.. thats all they do.  It's nothing fancy.  The rules are even on the LSAC site somewhere.

167/2.3 in @ SMU.  :)

Buy a decent one and make sure you get the 3-year on-site warranty, you'll be set for school.

I'd consider it almost mandatory with the amount of things you have to do online around campus (with wireless!), the typing speed vs. writing speed on exams, and the legibility of notes/completeness of notes due to typing speed vs. writing speed.

But hey.. do what you want.  Just remember that you're graded relative to your peers so you don't want to give up any advantages.
