(from Missouri)

I've been to Pennsylvania once.  I didn't find the people there overly friendly in relation to the midwest.  But people are people, I wouldn't worry about it.

Studying:

For me, it was a problem just sitting down and doing homework.  So I bought an egg timer and set it for 15 mins.  15 on 15 off until I got comfortable; then I just increased the time.  Until you get comfortable you will have to rely on cramming too.

Papers:

You can't have enough detail.  And there is no shame in repeating yourself in order to prove/make your point.  Most teachers don't really care what you have to say as long as you can back it up with something resembling reason.

ABN, (or anyone at Barry)

You got any other tidbits of information?  Anything we should know that isn't covered by the website or brochure?  Any insight from current or past students would be great.

Thanks

Florida / Re: In-state tuition

When I moved down here in '04, the law was; residency for 12 months and a day.  However, I did sit out a year just to make sure they couldn't tag me as out of state (once enrolled out of state, always out of state) for my UG.

All those other things are definitely bonuses that look good if someone decides to give you a hard time about residency or if you don't want to make a federal case out of it.  I forget which school told me I had to work 40hrs a week on top of the year, to become a resident.  I just laughed.  Bureaucrats 4tl.

Aren't elected judges politicians as well?

Affirmative Action / Re: QUESTION FOR AMERICANS ON AFFIRMATIVE ACTION

PR,

Your link does not provide adequate information in order to draw the conclusion whether or not Blacks or Women have benefited more from AA.  There does not appear to be any information on the percentage increase of Blacks (or I was unable to find it).  It's not that I doubt your premise, I just don't see how you get there with the information you cited.

If you have time, think about doing volunteer work for the DAs office or some like organization.

General Board / Fed, State, County.....

(excuse my verbage)

So a friend and I are having a discussion about police powers.  My understanding is lower jurisdictions must comply with the jurisdictions above them.  I was using speed limits as an example (probably a bad one).  My example:  A state sets the speed limits for its highways but where highways cut through cities, the state may allow the speed limit to be reduced, but the city does not have sole authority to determine what that limit will be.  Is the answer to this in state constitutions or state statutes?

Never underestimate the power of the Republican propaganda machine.  For anyone that caught Jon Stewart (Daily Show) last night, you can see they are already in full swing.  Good times ahead.
