I called the registrar and he told me it would be two more weeks for the rank

My school doesn't re-rank us until the fall, which I like . . . that way if I bombed any of the spring classes, I can make up for it in the summer.   :D

Like Brooklaw said, check with your school!  Don't listen to these people that are telling you definitively that you do not need an external floppy drive.  While there's little chance you will need a one for anything else, you MIGHT need one for exams.  While most schools are moving toward online submission of laptop exams, not every school is there yet.  Some exam software permits you to save your completed exam only to a floppy (NOT a CD-ROM, NOT a flash drive). 

If you don't know who to ask yet, don't worry about it for now.  Just wait until you find out whether you actually need one for exams and then buy one on the cheap.  Good luck!

You know there's a Yuengling brewery in Tampa so there's no problem finding that B&T. 

Hmm, places to see:

If you're a sports nut like me:
-Bright House Networks Field in Clearwater, home of the Threshers and Phillies spring training)
-Legends Field in Tampa (home of the Tampa Yankees and Yankees spring training)
-Knology Park (home of the Dunedin Blue Jays and Blue Jays spring training)
-Raymond James Stadium (home of the B-U-C-S, Bucs, Bucs, Bucs!)
-The Trop (home of the D-Rays)

Fun/beach stuff
-Pier 60/Clearwater Marina/Clearwater Beach
-John's Pass/Treasure Island (definitely eat at Crabby Bill's in Madeira Beach)
-Sand Key
-Honeymoon Island
-Frenchy's Rockaway Grill (you MUST eat here too)
-Palm Pavilion

Bars, bars, and more bars
-Ybor City (ask anyone down there, they'll know how to get there)
-Channelside District
-Hyde Park
-Downtown St. Pete

Artsy/interesting stuff:
-Plant Museum at The University of Tampa
-TB Performing Arts Center
-Dali museum in St. Pete
-Sunshine Skyway bridge and fishing pier

I'm sure I'll think of more.  I lived down there for 7 years, and I love it.  I can't wait to go back next year. 

Watch it. That link that was provided said that if you are a current student and consolidate now, you will lose your 6 month grace period. It made it sound like you will have to start paying as soon as school ends instead of giving you 6 months after graduation. That could be a big deal depending on your situation.

This is my biggest concern.  I don't want to be stuck begging for food while I'm trying to study for the bar.

Just be thankful yours are posted somewhere.  I have to wait for mine in the mail, and they're not even due to the registrar until Friday.   >:(

Current Law Students / Re: Favorite Evidence Study Aid/Supplement?

The E&E sucks for Evidence.  It's very small, and I found that I got more out of reading the ACN to the FRE than the E&E (wow, so many letters).  I've heard that the EZ Rules book is good, and I borrowed the "Roadmap" from a friend a few times and found it helpful.

I would use pen because of the permanency (sp?), and in a one of those spiral binders which already has the line paper attached to the binder.  And if you have handouts, put it in the open pockets that come attached to these binders.

 ??? ::) :o >:( your an idiot, R U even in law school?!?!?!!!111 you should definately use pencil bcos that way U can ERASE something if you fvcked it up and then you wont have to make a mess and only dorks have binders.  like me, i'm way too cool for a binder. 

I love you guys.   ;)

Ohio State has an academic bundle for $155 that has XP Pro, Office 2003, and a bunch of other ancillary crap.

Quote from: Ezekiel
I know at Michigan you need pro, at least for full functionality, like printing.

Uh-oh, can we trust you two to be on the same board together without causing trouble?   :D

Current Law Students / Re: Grading Curve Question
« on: May 23, 2005, 08:58:33 AM »
Here's a cut and past from Registrar website at my school (Ohio State):

Ds and Es - Not more than 4 percent with the direction that a D or E should be given only when inferior performance is clearly demonstrated


I must be too old or something, because I've never heard of an "E" grade before.  It that one of those things where you fail, but you don't have to feel bad because you can say, "oh no, I didn't get an F, I got an E"?  :)
