Black Law Student Discussion Board / Re: To those attending NCCU
« on: July 11, 2007, 12:49:02 AM »
I'll be enrolling at NCCU this fall as well.  I received a packet this past weekend with alot of information about materials that students are required to send (transcripts, forms, etc.).  It had information about various scholarships NCCU offers and it had some stuff about loans.   It also had information about orientation.  Orientation will begin at 9:00AM on August 14th (check-in is from 8AM-9AM) and go on through August 17th. We'll register for classes at orientation.  We take pictures in business attire on the 15th.  Classes start on the 20th.  All this material came in a large white envelope.

You'll probably be getting it in the mail soon.

But for real, i'm still in the dark about alot of things.  Like housing.  And they need to get the NCCU Law website back up and running.  I feel a little lost right now.


Linequoter,

are you living on campus? If so, I am waiting on housing info as well. I called in on Monday and they should be done with grad/law students assignements this week...so they say....not holding my breath on this one.

If you are living off campus, they emailed a listing of students looking for housing and roomates last week with email and phone contact info...not sure if you are going the roomate route. PM me if you need this listing, I can foward it along.

As far as the website is concerned, I contacted the IT people yesterday and they are working on it :(....should be up and running soon. It's mainly just the links off of the homepage.

I received my package on Monday...enrollment info etc etc (linequoter pretty much laid it out)...Hopefully you have received your package by now chocalatedlux56...but if you have been periodically crusing the website, the only "new" information is orientation week.

BTW, to Linequoter and chocolatedlux56, if you have a facebook account, there are two NCCU Law pages on FB...just a forum to meet and chat with fellow classmates. links below. :)

General board for soon-to-be 1Ls / Re: I hate the LSAC website

TOTALLY feel your frustrations....

I have Windows XP and I thought it was my system too until I learned better....I, however, still could not get the omniform filler to download properly. I used my friend's computer to do my applications...he has Windows 95 (LOL, yep they're still out there :D) and I didn't have to fiddle with the security settings to get it to download.

I dont have issues w/ the website in general....it's just that darn electronic application page(s) :-\

I notice on her website that she'll critique your returned exam for $75.  God bless her persistence and no offense to her, but do you really want someone who failed thirteen times telling you what you need to do to pass?   

One would think...

But I guess one way to look at it, is that having sat through the exam 14 some odd times, she can tell you what NOT to do, how to avoid traps, yada yada yada...

probably still wouldn't pay the $75 though ;D

35
umm... you guys are retarded. I got everyone right for USA. How could you not?


 :D

Please dont rub it in.....I feel bad enough as it is :-\

This is what my pre-law advisor said. >:(

She isn't the first to say this and I'm sure she won't be the last - why do people assume that someone who is African won't speak English well? And what do I say after this?  "Thank you?"'  "Oh, Nigeria was colonized by the British so we speak English?"

I can shrug it off as ignorance but I hate the assumption.

Sorry - just venting.  Now, me go study for LSAT!  ;)



Just because England colonized a given country doesn't mean that the inhabitants of that country necessarily speak good English.  There are a hell of a lot of terrible English speakers in India, for example.  Not to mention the fact that half the time you see Africans speaking English on TV (on the Discovery channel or National Geographic or whatever) they have to be subtitled to be understood.  And I don't mean people straight out of the bush, either. 

ummm, I think the subtitles have more to do with speaking with a heavy accent than speaking "good english"

although I have MAJOR issues with your last sentence for the sake of argument, who says that "people straight out of the bush" can not speak "good english." Perhaps you should define good English first???

Taking up to much space yada yada yada..lol...I totally agree with on the language equals communicative tool bit. :)

For fun:

I haven't found a good one of the whole world yet.  This site has it broken down by continents mainly.

Edit:  OK, I got a 146.  At least I would kick the butts of the people who were surveyed in that article, though I'm sure someone here will get a 150.

Oooh... 115 out of 117 on Europe.  It took me three tries to get Serbia right, so that was my mistake.  Somebody play with me.



123 out of the 150 points over here....terrible!
sad part is that I used to work in the traffic dept in a media company and we had to use US maps to send out tapes for shows.....pathetic ::)

I think I would actually have the opposite reaction: "Oh, you are African, no wonder your English is so good!"


 ;D

<== gymaholic.  Though my days of power cleaning and doing snatches are over, I will murder a treadmill 3-5 days a week if I can't get outside for a jog. I pay $30/month in downtown DC.



Now THAT price a month is not bad at all. but when you say 50 or 100 dollars a month....geeez!

I wish I can take up jogging outdoors....probably would save me some money (yeah I'm looking to scrimp and save anywhere I can :D)....the big bucks haven't rolled in yet.lol.

BUT I need folks around and music blasting to keep me pumped....

hahahaha....go ahead and vent girl. I've gotten that so many times! "O but you speak so well" or "Wow, you dont have an accent" My situation might be a bit different than most since I was born in the states but once people see my name, they assume everything under the sun...

Proud Igbo Girl :)
