Incoming 1Ls / XP and Vista
« on: July 14, 2007, 07:54:37 PM »
Sorry if this is a silly question but I don't know much about this stuff.  If my desktop has XP and my laptop has Vista, will I have problems working from both?  I will probably back up my notes on a memory stick and then work on them on my desktop.

Incoming 1Ls / laptop help
« on: July 09, 2007, 01:42:55 PM »
Are there any laptops with fullsize keyboards?  Maybe not full size but where the keys are placed the same space apart as on a regular keyboard.  The laptop I have now the keys are all squished together and it drives me nuts.  Any suggestions? TIA

Minority and Non-Traditional Law Students / Health Insurance
« on: May 18, 2007, 01:16:15 PM »
What is everyone doing in regards to health insurance?  Do most schools offer health insurance?  Is so is it just for students or are spouses and dependants eligible?  Sorry if this has been asked before but the only search feature is a pain in the a** to use.

What is considered the best when buying a new laptop, I'm asking about processor speeds and things like that.  When I go look at the thinkpad site I just don't know what half the spec stuff means.  Any help?

Law School Admissions / Fee Waiver from a school I have no shot at?!?!
« on: November 07, 2006, 06:03:47 PM »
I recieved a fee waiver from George Mason and I have no shot at getting in with my less then stellar 153 and 2.66 LSAC (3.5 ugrad).  I am not a URM.  Do you think I got this by mistake?  It was addressed to me but still.   ???

Choosing the Right Law School / Help! Please.
« on: October 21, 2006, 08:18:27 PM »
I have a 153 and a LSDAS GPA of 2.6 and an undergrad GPA of 3.4.  I plan on writing an addendum for the GPA split.  Truth be told I just didn't care for the first 3 semesters, took some time off and went back and kicked booty.  Made the dean's list a couple of times. I am currently working on (and will have completed before fall 07) my Masters with a 3.7 GPA.  I know LSAC doesn't factor that in but I know it should (and hopefully will) make a difference to law schools.  It shows that I can do post graduate level work and that my bad grades from 9 years ago were meaningless in the long run. Anyhow sorry to ramble I would just like some LDSers opinons on where to apply (safeties, targets, reaches).  TIA
