Financial Aid / Northstar THE...
« on: July 03, 2005, 12:11:50 PM »
I'm trying to complete my loans by web application and I'm deciding between Acecss Group and THE Northstar, anyone know if Northstar has a penalty for early repayment of stafford loans? I noticed Access Group doesn't, but Northstar doesn't mention repayment. Please help!

Ok Guys and Gals another update:

Credit for this one goes to Kyle who is relaxing and drinking it up in Padre right now, so he commissioned me to post this link:

That link is to the architects website responsible for building the multi-million dollar addition to the law school building, this will give you an artists rendition of what it will look like and where it will be situated!!!

We met Professor Bard in February, she is really nice- anyone know anything about the others???

 :D Emily

John Krahmer rules, he's one of the most popular faculty members. He has a reputation as a God of UCC (uniform commerical code) law. If you're interested in Business or Banking Law he's the man to make friends with. I was going to have to kill someone if I didn't get him for contracts.

God Bless Texas Tech!!!!!

Ok I found it...and if you go to the "detail schedule" it shows you the a typical format - ie Class - Prof - credits - days - time...etc

Mine is:

Contracts - Kramer - MTRF 8-8:50
Torts - Bard - TWRF 1-1:50
Civ Pro - Weninger - MTRF 11-11:50
Legal Practice - Knolton - MWF 9-9:50

Anyone else?

Getting married...I can't imagine going through that this summer. We got married two years ago, and thank goodness that's ALL I had to worry about at the time. My thoughts are with you, Brian.

I, too, cannot wait for the semester to start! I've been out of school 5 years, and the thought of being in a classroom, library and an academic community excites me. (Y'all remind me of this post in 6 months when we are slaving away at studying for finals!) But seriously, orientation cannot begin soon enough.

Another thing I can't wait for is going to a BIG university. With football. I did my undergrad at a 1200-student Catholic liberal arts school. I played rugby all four years, and NCAA sports were NOT a big deal at our campus. Don't get me wrong, I wouldn't trade that experience for the world. But, now, I get a second chance at getting a small taste of what its like to have MY TEAM on Sportscenter Saturday nights. (I guess most of you who went to big schools are simultaneously scratching heads right now.)

A few more ancillary notes about this past weekend's visit to Lubbock:

- Went to One Guy from Italy again. And once again, the calzone delivered!
- My undergrad cousin took us to the Pour House. Cheap happy hour, and a mighty fine Chicken Fried Steak sandwich, I have to admit. Maybe a first-weekend message board get-together spot? Hmmm?
- Shopped at United for the first was nice that there was no Reward Card, Value Card, Plus Card or any other kind of card that was necessary to have to get on-sale items. A little thing, I know, but VERY nice!
- One more restaurant review: Jalisco on Ave. Q. We went there and were the ONLY non-Hispanic patrons. The food was authentic, tasty and dirt cheap. Most plates $6 and below. A sign read that once a week, there is 99-cent margarita night. (I assume its not top shelf...) Definitely worth a second visit.

I promise to shorten my posts.

Wow, you sound a lot like me. I went to undergrad in a Small Catholic College of about 1,900 students. I have friends at THE Ohio State University and Case Western, but haven't gotten to experience the large university research and academic atmosphere. I'm looking forward to expanding at Texas Tech. I love being catholic and I loved going there, but I'm ready for a change.

Second, when you went to the pourhouse did you see the 3-story apartment complex to the left behind the pourhouse's parking lot? That's Savoy Condo's where I'm staying for my first year!!!! Pretty close to Tech huh?!?

Third, don't shorten your posts. I love hearing from y'all and glad to see y'all are as excited as I am about Tech. This keeps me sane through all the madness in my life right now!

I agree...

This summer has been anything BUT relaxing. With getting married, working, moving, and finding jobs I have not had any time to relax. Actually, right now I'm looking forward to law school because it will be a break for me and mean that all these things are behind me.

I'm looking forward to starting at Tech and getting 1L out of the way, specifically legal research and writing because that class consumes more of your time than the rest of the classes combined.

I hope y'all are as excited as I am. I know this summer has been flying by for me. It's hard to imagine in about 5 weeks I'll be living in Lubbock for the next three years!!

So did any of y'all get season football tickets with Kyle and I or are we going to be alone in Section 122?

Alright Texas1, now you can watch the spurs game. I almost had a heart attack throughout that game. I have to admit, I'm a Mavs fan, but I have a HUGE man-crush on Ginobili!
