Keep bringing that useful information and we'll let you stay in section 2.  Look forward to putting you down as a reference.

If you are applying to numerous schools, it's definitely worth the price; however, most schools have pdf versions that are easily accessed.

On the web is VERY convenient.  You can use it anywhere.  Like the poster above said, it definitely provides peace of mind.

But do you think your professors would be able to "teach the law" as they face the class? 

well, that outfit isnt such a problem when you are facing the person... its when you turn around that the problems start :)

Problems?  Perhaps you mean FUN!

yeah... always important to make a good impression.

ill be wearing leather chaps and a thong my first day. i just want to make sure that things get started out on the right foot.

If we could get our entire section outfitted this way, I'd think that would be a subtle signal to our professors that we were there to "learn the law".

I'm from the south.  The world would seem especially small to me if I were to meet up with someone with whom I went to undergrad.

Did you go to UG in the area?

I read that same thing; however, it's definitely available.

After you sign in, go to classmate roster and you will be able to see (well, at least some of) your future sectionmates.

Your section, complete with professors and peers, is available for your perusal on agora.

:D This is good.

Pookie's right about the semicolon; it's misused. (use in the preceding sentence is correct... and anytime you use a semicolon to join related independent clauses you're working within the rules).

Pookie's also right about the comma, too. We're not dealing with a restrictive clause here; it's an appositive phrase (a phrase defined as the amplification of a word that immediately precedes it). Actually, I think this one might be called an "absolute phrase as appositive." Anyway, appositive phrases are set off by commas on both sides.

But you're right about the second misused semicolon, jakia. Two related and independent clause... good to go.

Ain't grammar great?

It's not an appositive, because it's not describing "this".  It's coupled with "this" -- meaning something in addition to.  But, you're right about grammar; it be great!
