Is anyone else having the incredibly annoying experience of viewing a thread on this site and then being taken to a completely different website?

5th Amendment rights against self-incrimination do not cover physical evidence (blood, your BAC levels per a breathalyser, etc). The cops can take it without your consent and not violate any of your rights.
Um, they can't force you down to take a sample ;) You can refuse, but you'll likely be guilty of something because of implied consent laws, depending on the state law. For example, in Rhode Island, you'll automatically lose your license for refusing, and probably still be charged with a DUI. Only difference is whether or not you can drive before the trial (refuse = no, consent = yes).

2.   What is considered to be an adverse credit history?
You are considered to have an adverse credit history if you are 90 or more days delinquent on any debt

I know this constitutes a "ding" on one's credit... I forgot to pay a $50 medical bill for 90 days once... one small ding like that wouldnt be enough to deny a GRADPLUS loan would it?
Pull your credit report; I doubt that's even on it, unless it went to collections.

You can also get pre-clearance from most GradPLUS creditors (I know Citi will run one, so will College Board) to find out for sure, and then you'll know better that anyone here could tell you.

Me too! I'm glad to see another GW'er on here, there don't seem to be that many. Do you know where you're living yet (or do you already live in DC)?
Already live here -- I live in the Courthouse neighborhood of Arlington, two metro stops from GW. Let me know if you have any questions -- I lived in a few different neighborhoods in DC over the past few years before settling here a year or two ago.

Am I the only one who didn't get the t-shirt? I think I'm also the only one going! Dang. I wouldn't put it past the people in my building to have stolen it, since I'm guessing it didn't fit in my mailbox.
Dee! I thought you were at Penn! I just saw your other message. Glad you're coming :)

I am now wearing my t-shirt.

I felt a little bad about withdrawing from American because their turnaround on my application was so quick, but there were no personal touches (notes, phone calls) or any money. No response when I withdrew.

I felt REALLY bad about withdrawing from George Mason... a really kind woman called to let me know I was in, and was very sweet on the phone... talked about the school, said she hoped she made my day, etc. And when I withdrew, she sent a short email acknowledging it and saying they were sorry to lose me.

Programming was actually fun (CS major), but much like writing, I only performed well when programming something interesting/fun. I think I would've hated to do it for work.
