I doubt it's her looks.  She probably has connections.  You shouldn't be suprised.  You should be focused on out performing them.  Don't believe your dealing with a dumb blond

Seconded - people sometimes think I'm a dumb blonde, and it puts me at a great advantage :-)

This will probably make me sound dumb, but can someone please define black letter law? It's a phrase that's thrown around a lot on LSD, and while I have a vague idea of what it means, I'd like to be sure that I'm interpreting all these responses as they're intended.

Congrats to both of you - that's impressive. Do those of you with high LSAT scores (for your law schools) find any correlation to your level of success in law school? Or once you get in, does the LSAT prove not to be much of a predictor?

This site will let you know what kind of deals are available to DSl students:

It doesn't say much about specs, but both Macs and PC's are listed here, so I think both will probably work fine.

My husband mentioned finding something about computer discounts on the bookstore web page. I'll see if I can get some more info and/or find it myself. I noticed the eLion log-in requirement from the IT page as well....not particularly helpful... :-\

So when do you apply for the joint degree program? Spring of 1L year?

Oops - Puja, I thought you said N. WEST St. (maybe from your other message?). The 300 block of W. NORTH St. is a better option than the 300 block of N. West St - sorry for the confusion! The only problem you might have in that area is construction noise - Dickinson College is building a new science facility right near there.

Do you happen to know the cross streets? I'm thinking the 300 block of N. West is in the area of Penn St., but I could be wrong. If so, as Kilroy said, that's not a great area, but you really don't have much to worry about. Carlisle has a pretty low crime rate. The Penn St. area is a lower income area and there has been some drug activity there, but I don't really think it's unsafe. I would just judge by how comfortable you feel when you go look at the place.

Pennsylvania State / Joint Degrees

There seems to be little info on the DSL web site about the logistics of doing a joint degree program. Can anyone tell me more about how these work? Can you count a large number of courses towards both degrees? I'm particularly interested in the M.P.A. program.

Thanks,  Thats about what I've predicted.  I'm looking at around $150 for food from sams, and 90% eat in.  My brieakfast consists of coffee, and a side of coffee.  I fear that McD's, but it may become a reality since it's so close. I'm aiming to live downtown.  I'm hoping not to use my car too much (If I have one...long story).

What about the dickinson college gym membership.  Do you use that or is there a better place?  I'm hoping to burn some energy in there, and maybe grow a muscle or two.

SO you're going to survive on mass-produced junk food? I may have to take pity on you and bring you an apple from time to time  :)
