I think it's very tacky to recind an invitation, and the circumstances sound like BS. Very poor taste. Who are they to determine whether a relataionship is "significant" or not?  How does your brother feel about this behavior?  With that said, I agree that this not a time to make major waves, but perhaps you should express your hurt feelings to your brother, just for your own piece of mind.

I think you should start thinking about putting the undergrad mindset behind you.  If worrying about raising your GPA by .1 will take your focus away from studying for the LSAT, working on your PS, or cultivating relationships for a great LOR, you need to reset your priorities.   I got caught up in the same thinking in my senior year.  I was so obsessed with graduating with the highest possible GPA, I didn't spend enough time preparing for LSATs.  So now I end up with a 3.95/Summa Cum Laude and an LSAT score in the toilet and I feel like a dummy after all my hard work.

I am buying the Averatec 3225 today.

12.1" screen
small enough to fit in your back pocket, yet big enough to use.
2.00 GHz Athalon
4.2 lbs
512 MB
nicer keyboard than the 3100 series.

I saw that on  It says "UP TO 512 MB DDR."  Does that mean it's really a 256 but can be expanded for extra cost?  Also, do you know when it will be available? 

I'm think of this one.|21474|214&lview=&cm_cg=&tid=&c=&sc=&lp=v1i010

I have occasionally in the past fallen off the wagon and stopped working out for weeks, even months at a time and I can tell you it's such a bad idea.  The mental/psychological benefits of working out are so important and have become my #1 motivation for doing it.  I'm always amazed at the difference when I get back into it. 

Don't be stressed out by all the posts on these boards.  They are merely the nervous ramblings of a bunch of pre-1L's trying to stay sane in these few weeks before LS hits us in the face.  Most of us have no clue about what's in store for us so we spout opinions and stuff we've heard from others, so take everything with a grain of salt.

I'm blocking out early in the morning (like 6:30-8:00 am) to workout because I know that once the day starts, I'll think of a million reasons not to go to the gym. There will be NO EXCUSES or scheduling conflicts at that hour of the morning, only that I'm too lazy, which is unacceptable.  A few weeks before school starts, I'll put myself on this schedule so I'll be used to it.

On a less hostile note, what primers are you guys reading?

About one month ago, I read the first 150 pages of PLS and got turned off by the rantings, long-windedness, and poorly-organized information, so I put it aside.  I picked it back up this week, and now I'm somewhat a believer in the methods From PLS, I found that I really like reading about the law, so spending some time this summer reading primers is not a hardship for me or something I'm looking to avoid or justify not doing.  I ordered the Aspen series on Torts, CivPro, and Contracts, and the Delaney Learning Legal Reasoning for starters.  I also ordered the LEEWS tapes.  I figure this will get me accustomed to the language of the law and get me started on the way to thinking like a lawyer. A good mental exercise and some piece of mind.
