General board for soon-to-be 1Ls / Re: private loans

I'm pretty sure they can review your application and get back to you in 48 hrs, so you can do it right before school starts.  I'm using Access Group.

learn how to read.  he doesn't want to work for the federales.  wants to return to texas.

Just got back from remedial reading class!  The OP said nothing about not wanting to work for the federales, but rather expressed an interest in employment law, a field of law which many fed. government lawyers deal with.  Also said "probably want to stay in the South."  Notice the words "probably" and "South." 

I will probably want to stay in the South when I graduate.  I am looking to go into employment law or alternative dispute resolution.  I am also interested in international law.

I'm leaning strongly towards GW.  Am I crazy?

No.  I recently chose GW over UT because a)GW has better placement in the fed. government and NGOs, and b)I wanted more student diversity than UT's 80% req. allows.

It might depend on the danger of being stranded with a broken leg relative to that of getting into a car with someone who has admitted they've had a bit much to drink. Is a broken leg really a serious emergency?

If it's a femur, then yes - it could be life-threatening.

GW is a great school- but is it me or as soon as someone says something negative about it a bunch of GW people come on to defend it?- maybe people do this for all schools and i didnt notice it but its interesting

If by "a bunch of GW people" you mean one poster (what xoxoers would call a "troll"), then no - you're not the only one who has noticed.

Did anyone go to the thing the SBA hosted at night?  How was it?

Rainy outside.  2nd floor of a bar (Vida) was full of prospectives (about 1:2 girl-guy ratio) with loud techno.  When that scene got stale people slowly migrated to Front Page next to Dupont Circle, which was packed.  Everyone seemed to have a really good time, hence the many hungover kids strolling in late to brunch.

I met a lot of happy GW students (mostly 1Ls, some running the admit day activies and some not).  The class I visited was not spectacular, but I felt like the professor had enough wit and insight to carry me through the class without getting bored.  The facilities were very nice and the food was good.  I thought the advantages to going to GW were laid out pretty well - the opportunity to gain credit by interning during the summer and school year in the town with the best internships was particularly attractive for me.  The professor that I ate lunch with on Saturday (with 8 others) was extremely impressive - he and other faculty were proud to be teaching there and really bought into GW's emphasis on teaching law and not getting bogged down in theory.  I thought that lunch was a nice capstone experience for the 2 days.  Every other prospective I met was very friendly and I got the sense that I would truly enjoy being around them for the next three years. 

I had a great time in DC during the nights; seems like there's a lot of young people and plenty to do.  I'm interested in working for the federal government or a NGO, so DC is the best location for me to go to law school.  Right now it looks like I'm headed to GW over a few higher ranked schools (as are many other prospectives I met).

Where should I go next fall? / Re: UT EID Password Requirements
« on: March 25, 2005, 02:06:11 AM »
The day UT changed their password requirements, this editorial appeared in the Daily Texan:

http://www.dailytexanonline.com/news/2004/09/23/Opinion/Viewpoint.please.Enter.New.Password-728041.shtml

If, like the rest of UT, you're frustrated by the inane password rules, you'll enjoy it.

 :D Very nice.  I was quite impressed when I found that the string "1052" was found in their dictionary, and thus cannot be used in a password.
