I don't get it - a spammer bumps a 5 month old thread, and you kids re-argue everything that was already said on the first page?

It probably takes less time to fill out a 1040EZ based upon zero income than it does to start a new thread asking about the possible reasons not to do so.

Incoming 1Ls / Re: Tulane vs William and Mary

One other factor worth mentioning here: New Orleans is recession-proof still reaping the benefits of hurricane recovery! Currently lots of 2Ls at Tulane have local summer jobs paying market despite the downturn because New Orleans is insulated from the national economy experiencing a short-lived vitality that will end as the rebuilding effort begins to come to a close.

You definitely want to make your notes and outlines more readily accessible. I'd recommend making multiple copies, to be placed in each room of your apartment in the event you are not able to instantly access your filing cabinet. Also, consider placing a copy in the glove compartment of your car. Great question - many students overlook this sort of thing.

Law School Admissions / Re: Finicial Aid - Married vs Single

How aid is calculated depends solely on the school.  This is something you'd need to look up with each respective school.

I assume the quoted poster is referring solely to institutional grants or loans: Stafford, GradPlus, and Perkins* loans are governed by federal statute, and eligibility will not vary from one school to the next.

Ultimately, you will remain eligible for the maximum amount of federal loan funding in unsubsidized Stafford and GradPlus loans regardless of your financial or marital status. In the federal program, only Perkins loans and that portion of Stafford loans which are subsidized are impacted by financial need.

Without knowing more about the financial status of you or your spouse, it is impossible to determine how your eligibility for Perkins loans and subsidized Stafford loans will be affected. If, for example, your spouse is also a student, then you may benefit from your marital status in the context of financial aid. On the other hand, if your spouse earns a high income, your eligibility may be compromised.

*Perkins loans are administered by individual schools, and while eligibility will not vary, schools may not allocate the limited amount of Perkins funding available in the same manner.

Spamming the boards to promote a blog is typically not a good way to increase traffic, particularly if the blog is merely an uninteresting rehash of topics discussed on other legal blogs.

You win the Rick Lax award for December 2008.

can someone please explain the difference between these two in determining where a corporation's state citizenship is?

There is no difference: as the above post points out, both the state(s) of incorporation and the state containing the PPB serve as the basis for citizenship for diversity purposes. Thus, Microsoft is a citizen of both Deleware, the state where it is incorporated, and Washington, the state where its PPB is.

107 F.3d 52 FTW

oops - 9 F.3d 303 is actually the cite I meant to post, although the original cite is somewhat on point as well.
