so here is the one other problem with the bc computers... bc is offering dell lattitudes. but dell's latest models are the inspirons. dell is only selling lattitudes as refurbished computers. please tell me that if i buy through bc im not getting a refurbished comp!

i called up the bc bookstore and they girl at the desk assured me that they were new... i just dont have much faith that she knew what she was talking about.

yeah... access code is: bclaptop

and i hear you on the dell thing... THEY SUCK! i guess thats why you need the complete warranty.

but man... it really is a good price on the bc website. especially for the multimedia computer (a full GIG of ram!). the only thing i dont like about the computers (aside from the dell thing) is that they are all 14" screens. is that big enough? i was thinking more along the lines of a 15" screen.

ahhhh... too much to think about. you know what? screw this... im not gonna go to law school. i wonder if mcdonalds is hiring for next year...?

it seems like the laptops that they are offering through the school are a VERY good deal. as much as i hate dell computers, i think the price and the full warranty (where even if i break it they fix it) might force me to go with the BC comps.

my other option is to get a "custom" computer though a company in cambridge. id definitely be better quality, but wouldnt come with the complete warranty...

hmmm... too many choices...

hmmmm... working during 1L seems risky to me. is the extra few bucks really worth the potential harm to your gpa/clas rank? i mean, in 3 years, whatever $ you have earned will be a drop in the bucket compared to your earning potential (assuming you do well in school)

have you all given any thought to what computer you are going to buy? what do you think about the ones they are offering through the bc bookstore?

are there any other incoming 1Ls out there?

thanks so much LawGirl! i appreciate all the advice!

now when you outline, do you just use ms word or did you buy some of the special software that is out there like Inspiration 7.5?

so perhaps a dumb question: but where exactly do we learn how to make outlines/flow charts the proper law school way? is this something that they will go over in orientation? is there a book youd suggest?

also, how do the notes we take in class fit into our outlines? are they one in the same? and regarding note taking in class, is there a proper way to take them?

is it just my engineering background that is leaving me confused about all of this stuff or are all of the 1Ls going to be in the same boat as me?
