Law School Applications / Re: Macbook Pro with Windows???
« on: May 26, 2008, 09:01:48 PM »
Here is a link calling the Macbook Pro the best laptop:

Also, I agree with the above posters, you don't need that much computer for Windows XP (don't buy Vista). The Pro just has a better design and really nice hardware. If you don't care about price though, it is rated the best--especially for WIndows.

But as someone who went from a PC to a Mac, there is no comparison for me, the Mac wins hands down. PCs are better for people who play video games and build their own computers. Pretty much everyone else would be better with a Mac.

Another parking related question:

Do people with motorcycles need to get a permit? I noticed there were a few motorcycles parked by the entrance in the garage during student orientation days. Is there a special permit for motorcyclists? Over 400 dollars seems like a ton of money to spend on parking my vehicle.

I am getting pretty excited to come out. This summer is the first time in two years I will not be attending school so I am going to soak up all the free time I have, as I am only working 40 hours a week. It is amazing how working and going to school can make working only 40 hours a week feel like a vacation.

How did finals go. I would be very interested to see a final exam that a professor has administered. Does anyone have one? Clearly I mean an example one that teachers give out, not a stolen copy :) Also, are there any books that show example exams in law school? It would be a good summer read.

Exams just started they don't end til the 15th, so we are in the thick of it now :)

That sucks. I was looking at the school schedule for next year and it looks like we get a month off for Christmas break--that will be sweet! But getting out of school in May will kind of suck. I have been done school for two weeks. But at my school now there is no spring break, so having one of those will be nice also.

Actually, I emailed them and asked what they were trying to say with the scholarship in the amount of $ a year.

About fifteen minutes later they sent out another response apologizing for the mistake.

Their scholarship offer was really low. was offered far more money from way better schools.

I don't think there is a surefire way of knowing if you are in or not, but so far if you can access the housing app you are in. Just because that has been the case 100% of the time now doesn't mean it will continue to be, but it should be encouraging.

I think we could say congrats and not be jumping the gun. Congrats!

So I called financial aid last week and asked them if they would consider giving me more scholarship money. They said that they would get back to me sometime this week. They emailed me today and said they were going to up my scholarship offer from 15k to 20k a year. This was great news. This would have swayed my choice in favor of DU even if CU said yes (which they didn't).

I am getting pretty excited to started. Twelve grand a year for a good law school seems like a great deal to me!

I am feeling pretty grateful right now. It looks like the countless hours spent studying for the LSAT are paying off!

Law School Applications / Re: Competitive Schools?
« on: April 12, 2008, 01:22:17 AM »
Yeah, I think the question is silly. I love whenever I have spoken with people at law schools, they ALWAYS say that their school is not competitive. According to what I have heard from every single person about law school, there isn't a competitive school.

I think the answer is pretty much this, the most competitive schools are the ones that rank their students, I think it is that simple.
