To the OP, good advice. 

Re legaldad...  I think I've said this before, but I'm really glad my dad isn't on LSD posting about advice and strategies for getting into lawschool.  We have an entire generation of people who can't think for themselves without the mommy/daddy crutch.  They don't write their own essays for applications, they can't decide for themselves where to apply, they feel like they're disappointing their parents if they don't go to Daddy's Dream Law School, etc.

Do your kid a favor and teach them some independence. 

My parents quit looking at my report cards in middle school, were totally hands-free on applying to college, didn't go to orientation, didn't help me choose a major or classes, didn't ask about my GPA in undergrad, didn't help me apply to or choose a law school, and didn't help me decide to defer last year.  They didn't even help me pick out my boyfriend!

I'm sorry, but this: http://www.careerjournal.com/columnists/theorypractice/20070307-theorypractice.html
is probably thanks to parents like legaldad.  And it's sad.

If your kid still needs your help to the point that you have to read LSD, then you have failed somewhere else along the line long before this.

Ah my beautiful MPark:  Congrats on your decision to attend Chicago!  I wish you the best of luck.  When will you move to the windy city or are you already in the vicinity?

Hey Hank.  Sorry, but MP doesn't post here anymore.  It seems our fearless leader has abandoned us.

I just got the email that says my thinkpad was shipped.  Does anyone remember how soon after you got the email that you received the laptop?

I'm not gonna bring my car, but I'm kinda thinking the same thing.  I'll see how it goes for the first couple of months and if it really sucks not having a car, I'll bring mine.  For me it just seems the convenience wouldn't be worth the cost of parking/gas/insurance, so I probably won't end up bringing it.


Unmetered street parking is abundant in Hyde Park. I'm not sure how safe it is, though.

From what I remember, most people parked in Regents, which was about $140 a month, and then a spot by the school was around $30 a month.  I wonder why more people don't take advantage of the unmetered parking.  I'd guess it's probably not that safe.

Stuck in an office, bored out of my mind bump

On MP: I think a public shaming should be utilized at this stage. Of course, would we truly notice such a relatively brief absence if not for the fact we want her to change the thread title?

(sorry MP)

I would notice...she brings an attitude of hope and innocence in an lsd world devoid of both

Just kidding...I just just want her to change the title

What if Wally World is closed for repairs?

Question of the day: to bring car or not to bring car?

I'm leaning towards not bringing the car right now, with the opportunity to change my mind come Thanksgiving break.

I'm not gonna bring my car, but I'm kinda thinking the same thing.  I'll see how it goes for the first couple of months and if it really sucks not having a car, I'll bring mine.  For me it just seems the convenience wouldn't be worth the cost of parking/gas/insurance, so I probably won't end up bringing it.

PS: I just realized saying "our version of Jerry Springer" is incredibly elitist. I apologize to all the fine individuals who appeared on Springer.

I'm sure sillyberry has been on Jerry Springer, and she didn't seem offended.

Maury

By the way, stop trying to get me to go on Maury with you.  It's not mine.

Tell it to Judge Judy.
