best visit
NYU and Penn were both good. I didn't visit other ones.

best admissions office
All were fine. I didn't really have any communication other than standard.

Chicago and Penn were both good. Harvard's binder is ... red. I like it. UVa sent basically nothing and loses this round. NYU, also.

Penn's t-shirt > NYU's.

best moment
third Harvard call

Harvard WL... worked out in the end.

Chicago's is great. Penn's was good - the redesign, however, is sort of so-so. Harvard's looks nice but is unintuitive to use.

Right now, I am only looking at Harvard affiliated housing (HRES): is this a mistake?  Are there any HRES apartments to avoid?  My View and Select Dates are at the very end of July and the start of August: should I wait until then to pick an HRES apartment or snag something from Currently Available while I can?  Thanks.

I am not the most knowledgeable person regarding this, but I'd say the closer to the law school the better. I assume all are at some basic level of quality/maintenance. I have the same window, and I will be watching Currently Available as well. There may not be much to choose from by August.

The MacBook was updated recently. The MacBook Pro has not been updated in months.

IMHO the LED display is the only thing worth the wait. Santa Rosa is overrated. I do agree however that waiting doesn't hurt as Apple rarely, if ever lately, changes their prices.

Even if there was no LED upgrade or even Santa Rosa, the spec boost would be worth it, IMO. Unless the laptop is required *now* why not wait and get slightly more disk space and perhaps a marginally faster processor for the same price? It's been over half a year since an update to the MacBook Pro, I believe. I never understand why people are so eager to buy right before an update...

Frankly, PDA keyboards (yeah, the extending kind too) suck. Not to mention the annoyance factor of having to unfold the damn thing before each lecture. Better to get a laptop. It's not that much bulkier or heavier.

All right, I'm about to pull the trigger on a MacBook Pro 15" and I need some advice.

Ignore those who said not to wait. Unless you absolutely must have the laptop now - unlikely, as school won't start for several months and you're posting here anyway - you should hold off. The Santa Rosa update (perhaps with LED display...) is coming in late June; my bet would be for a WWDC announcement.

FWIW, the turnaround to update my file was one day. If you sent it on Friday, perhaps try waiting another day.

You aren't missing much as far as 'currently available' - the closest is probably 85-95 Prescott and it starts in July. I personally don't have another few grand laying around to spend on two months of a lease I won't use, but YMMV.
