Boston College / ok, i gotta say... BC health insurance ROCKS
« on: August 25, 2004, 11:17:45 PM »
so, i was expecting some craptastic health plan through the school... you know, something like where there was a $5000 deductible and only covered emergencies.

but i went to the doctors the other day and here was the tab:

doc's visit: $10
x-ray: FREE!!
mri: FREE!!

also, a prescription that cost $50 every three months through my old health plan only costs $5 through this health plan. in fact, every prescription only costs $5!

how cool is all that?!

i was talking to a friend who is getting his phd at stanford and he said that he pays twice what we pay and says that his plan covers barely anything.

Boston College / BC Gym options
« on: August 17, 2004, 03:47:37 PM »
for those who care, just wanted to let you know that bally's is pretty cheap right now (even cheaper than the BC gym, i tihnk). i put $50 down (which includes the 1st month's payment) and my monthy payment will be like $26.

the gym is in brighton (like 10 minutes from BC), right next to the New Balance outlet. For those into weights, the gym is good, not great, but infinitely better than BC. for those into cardio, its a paradise.

if anyone thinks that they are going to sign up, let me know so you can put me down as a reference :)

Boston College / BC class of 2007

are there any other incoming 1Ls out there?

Current Law Students / whast is outlining? Why do I care about it?
« on: June 10, 2004, 02:19:17 PM »
I'm going to be a 1L this coming fall and I'm feeling a little behind the game... I've spent the past 6 years (undergrad + grad) as an engineering major so perhaps part of the problem is my lack of exposure to typical liberal arts study techniques.

I know what an outline is (at least in the general, non-law sense), but is it any different in law school? Why is it such a good study tool? How come everyone and their brother is so concerned about having a good outline? Arenít my studying/class notes sufficient? Do I really need a special program to do it effectively or can I just use MS Word?

Thanks to any experienced law students who can offer some advice!

Law School Admissions / Falwell Law School ... wtf?
« on: August 18, 2004, 03:07:37 PM »

my take: this is some screwed up shizen.

id rather go to that p.o.s. school in california that doesnt require the lsat.

Incoming 1Ls / screw the warranty?
« on: July 07, 2004, 06:02:26 AM »
so im trying to decide between two computers... the problem is that one computer (the dell) isnt exacly known for great quality. plus, it comes with all that extra crappy software on it. but it does come with a complete 4 year warranty where even if i break it they fix it.

the other computer is top of the line (from a private, high-end computer company) but only comes with a 2 year warranty and it doesnt cover accidents that are my fault.

is it worth it to forget about the warranty and get the better quality computer or am i going to get screwed over? does anyone have any no-warranty horror stories?

Incoming 1Ls / is LEEWS a load of crap?
« on: June 23, 2004, 04:18:16 PM »
ok, so ive read a few posts on this site about LEEWS ( and im not sure what to think...

in reading the LEEWS website, it almost sounds like one of those get-rich-quick deals: "EARN THE As THAT YOU DISERVE WITHOUT DOING ANY WORK...."

has anyone taken this course? im i just missing the point here?

Incoming 1Ls / best laptop to buy
« on: June 11, 2004, 04:48:31 PM »
so what do you all suggest as far as the best laptop to get?

ive been leaning towards a dell only because they have the total warranty where they will fix it even if im the one who drops it. at the same time, i hate dell with a passion and i know that they make crappy computers so i was thinking about buying a custom made computer. the advantage with this company is that (1) ive used them before and they are VERY reputable and (2) they only use top-of-the-line parts. The down side is that they dont offer a warranty package where they will fix it even if i break it.

as far as all the technical stuff, here is what i was thinking:

battery life: 5hrs minimum
screen size: 15" minimum
processor: pentium M
hard drive: 40gigs
ram: 256
weight: 7lbs maximum

any thoughts on the subject?
