General board for soon-to-be 1Ls / Re: GEORGIA STATE!!!!!
« on: May 23, 2007, 11:24:56 PM »
Well I will definitely have a laptop, I was just wondering if there was a requirement as to which kind of laptop? 

I've seen from the other boards that many people prefer Macs, but most schools don't allow those (or at least, the exam software is not compatible with them). 

I know a lot of newer laptops on the market now have Vista on them --  I absolutely hate vista right now, would prefer a laptop with XP, at least until Microsoft works out the numerous kinks, and from what I understand some of the software some law schools are using isn't compatible with Vista--don't know if that is true or not.

I already have a laptop--a Compaq, and it is in no shape to go to law school with me  :P
I need to buy a new one this summer and just needed to know if there was a certain kind I had to have.

I guess I'll give them a call tomorrow and ask...I'll post any answers I get.

I'm taking a road trip in June/July, so I might try to drive through Atlanta on the way back--can check out the school (and immunization office) and apartments at the same time.  I'll try to get it done before that, but if I can't that's good to know.

Does anyone know if Georgia State has a laptop requirement?  I looked on the website, but couldn't find any info about it.

I hear ya.  But waiting is something I've grown accustomed to. (Navy's unofficial motto: hurry up and wait)  :D :D

The problem is that I already feel like I'm running out of time.  Anyone else having this problem?  I have to register with the VA so I can get them to complete the immunization stuff, I graduate this week, so can't get my official transcript until then, I have to find an apt somehow over the internet, fly down to Atlanta and check it out, and move by August 1...and I feel like June will be a wasted month because of everything else I have to do in life... lol...

August is going to come too early!!! But I can't wait...I'm getting so pumped to move again, and finally get my own apt again.  Even if I will be driving for days to get anywhere. lol...

When I hear gunner, I think Arsenal FC....  ;D


LOL!  When I think gunner...I think of it from a navy point too.  Though as a previous Fire Controlman myself, I would never call an FC a gunner or vice versa...

But glad to see someone else riding my wavelength!  :D :D

It's definitely worth asking about.  Question though...since my understanding is that the law school doesn't have its own financial aid office (it's through the UG school), should I call the office of financial aid or admissions for that kind of question?

I think it's because of my outsider status at Penn State (continuing ed. student who went to a lot of night school) I never really asked administrative questions and hardly ever dealt directly with the school staff--so don't really know the proper thing here--do the administrative staff get annoyed by phone calls?   :-\

thanks for the info!

It looks like becoming a resident isn't as easy in GA as it is in other states.  I'll give them a call though anyway...

So...do you think they'll send out the section letters even if we haven't sent in our immunization stuff yet?

Hey everyone!

Thanks for posting!!

I'm glad to see people are actually attending GSU on here...was starting to wonder if there were any others out there ;)

I will be attending GSU FT in the fall.  I have not returned my immunization records as of yet, and since my final grades for this semester have not been turned in, I have not given them a final transcript yet either, so I haven't been assigned to a section.  I wasn't able to make it to the ASD (I live near Philly right now), so I missed out on any good information that was dispensed. 

By the way..FESTUS...yes, I am a vet!  I served 6 years in the Navy.

Thanks AtlAggie for recommending Midtown.  I'm definitely trying to keep the rent costs as low as possible since I'm going to be living off of loans and the GI Bill, I'd like to leave school with the least amount of debt possible.

Speaking of which, does anyone know Georgia's (and thus GSU's) policy on in-state residency and the timeline?  If I move down to Atlanta beginning of August this year, and change my residency after living there for a year, could I be considered in-state for my 2L and 3L years? Or are the standards a bit tough?  I'll check the boards more often now that I know other posters are on here :)  Not to mention that tomorrow is my last day of finals (and the undergrad years will finally be officially over!), so I'll have a little more time to surf the net...

Can't wait to see you guys in August!!

thanks Big Slick--

I'm sure I'll have more Q's soon.  I'm just worried about trying to find a place to live down there for now, but once this semester is officially over (2 more finals to go), and my summer officially starts, I'm sure I'll be doing all the unnecessary research into Atlanta, and probably bugging you with all kinds of questions!  ;D

It's my LS of choice as well--even after the Denver acceptance.  I'm looking forward to moving down there!
