Current Law Students / Re: Defer?

Maybe you should call the admissions office and ask them what their policy is.  They will probably still require at least the first deposit, though.

Current Law Students / Re: Having a baby summer after 1L?

P.S.  I should add:  I graduated UG in 2002, worked full time for 2 years, then Ruth was born, I took 3 months maternity leave and have been working from home part time since then.  Staying home is wonderful, and I have loved seeing her grow so much every day.  She'll be in daycare this August, right after she turns 1, and in a way I feel relieved at the prospect -- I know I will find a great place for her, and I think she will have a lot of fun.  Plus, the milestones come more slowly after the first year (as far as I understand).  But when we have our second, I want to be able to stay home with him/her like I have with Ruth -- and that wouldn't be possible if we had another during law school.  So, we decided to wait.

My daughter is 7 1/2 months old, and I'm only 24.  I'll be a 1L this fall.  While my husband and I don't want to wait too many years to have another baby, from how hard the first few months were, there's no way I could do as well as I would like in law school with a newborn.  Pregnancy itself is tough -- the first three months I was tired all the time; second trimester was great, but at the end of it I developed gestational diabetes, and that required all kinds of extra doctors' appointments.  Plus, there was iron deficiency that brought on extra fatigue.  Knowing now how my body took to pregnancy, we've decided we'll wait until probably the fall of 3L to get pregnant again, and I will just delay starting full-time work after graduation.  Just some advice from a new mommy... there's a lot to consider!  I wish you the best.

So, are we assuming emails won't be provided until orientation?

Wish I remembered so I could tell you . . . it's a detail that has faded into the mists of my pre-law-school life.  ;)  I feel like it wasn't until just prior to orientation, or something like that.  But they could do it differently this year than they did my year.

Hey to all you new Catholic students -- I'm an '08 day student and thought I'd post when I saw this thread.  I'm excited to see that you guys are looking forward to coming here -- I really love this school.  I was unsure about it at first, but after Admitted Students weekend, I knew this was the place I wanted to be.  Feel free to ask me any questions you have about the school.

That sounds even easier.  ;)

That is definitely the best and easiest solution.  First go to Insert > Symbol and find the one you want to use.  Select the character code from ASCII (decimal).  So for the section sign, it's 167.  Close that and go to Tools > AutoCorrect Options.  For the section sign, my abbreviation is SS.  So type SS in the "replace" box (or whatever you want to use).  Then click in the "with" box.  You need to use the number pad for this part so if you're using a laptop turn on number lock.  Now hold Alt and press the number sequence 0167 with the number pad.  (Or put in whichever number is appropriate for pi, delta, etc.)  That should take care of it.  If OneNote / Word replaces your text in a way you don't like you can always click on the little icon that appears and flashes right after the replacement.

Now that I've had more practice with the program through Orientation, I think it will work just fine, except of course for assignments for Lawyering Skills.  One powerful feature is the note flags.  I've set mine up with one for definitions, one for hypos, and another one for briefs.  That way I can write all my notes by topic within each section of my notebook and just use the Flags Summary pane to find all definitions, etc.

That's awesome, MSU!  Congratulations!!  See you on Tuesday, maybe?

Why do you want to avoid using Outlook?

My tablet (Fujitsu T4010) has OneNote and I'm still deciding between that or Agilix GoBinder.  So far I prefer GoBinder since it has an integrated calendar and task list, and I want to avoid using Outlook.

I guess I'm biased against it from having to use it at work... the way we had it set up was a real pain.  I realize it probably wouldn't be as much of a pain on my personal computer, but I still want to check out what else is available.
