Well, now that it has the TimMitchell stamp of approval I'm sure it will get much more traffic!
(uh, but you sort of missed the point, which is to tell me what school you're attending so I can add you to the list!)

Sign me up! I'd be more inclined if the buy-in were toward the lower end, though . . . .

That must be some pretty good spunk!

Ok, I'll break the ice by grabbing some names off the X School Thread.

LSD Class of 2011:






Indiana U - Bloomington

Indiana U - Indianapolis:,4010434.0.html






University of Chicago:


University of Minnesota:,102473.0.html






Check out this thread:,4010755.0.html
I signed up for it and have been making a little cash on the side.  It's an easy way to make a little money when you're already on the computer all the time or if you're just hanging out watching tv.
Good luck!

We already made the move -- over 600 miles from Georgia to Indiana.  I think the truck (12' from Penske) was about $502 including the insurance and crap, and gas was about another $200.  It's expensive, no matter how you go about it.

Ok, I am totally stealing this idea off of another site, but it's a great idea and I can't believe no one has done it for LSD yet.  Seeing as how class of 2011 posters only make up about 1/5 of the "Official I'm going to X School Thread," I thought I'd start a list of LSDers and their schools, for anyone who's interested.  For students going to schools that don't have their own "Class of 2011" thread, here's a good way to find each other.  Just post a reply with the school you'll be attending, and I'll try to keep the list updated.  If a school has a "Class of 2011" thread, I'll link that in also.

What should I say?  What's the typical format?

Should I include something specific about each firm, like "I love your litigation practice group"?  What are some typical compliments?

I'm having trouble thinking of any instances where it would be appropriate to use the word "love" in a cover letter to a law firm . . . .  Maybe you could say something like "Your firm's litigation work is very impressive."?

I had to get loans for grad school at UGA, and if you had your paperwork done over the summer, then the school would disburse the balance of your loans usually a little before school started.  A lot of schools now do direct deposit, so check and see if you can sign up for that -- you'll get your money a lot faster!

I'm not saying people shouldn't intervene, it's just that I feel a nation should be sought as an ally rather than deciding on its own to invade.  It's been a while since history, but I feel like we asked for help and support?  I understand that absolutely horrendous things have occurred and are still occurring over there, but until the people commit to saying "we want change and we want you to help us fight for change and make it work" it ain't gonna work.  That's all.  By no means do I think Sadam Hussein should be in power, but I don't think we should have been the ones to decide to take him out. 

As far as war goes, I like the points made by TimMitchell.  The unfortunate truth is that was is always going to be ugly and brutal and violent.  I think the military needs a lot of leeway to get the job done, as long as they make every effort to avoid civilian casualties and human rights abuses.  and I'm an independent/democrat.
