Incoming 1Ls / Re: Buying a new laptop: 15" vs. 17"

Based on my experience, this shouldn't happen.  On the battery or in the wall, the screen should be the same.

Hehe, thanks. Well unfortunately I have no warranty for this thing so I will have to just hope that wherever I go, I will have an outlet to connect to or deal with the jittery screen.

Okay, on a tangent, can I ask any of you who own a Dell (preferably a 600m)? When I have mine plugged into the wall, the laptop monitor works fine, but when I unplug it after charging it for hours, the screen gets all jittery and distorted. Is mine defective or is there a setting I need to change?

USD- $150 April 1; more if you were given a scholarship.

I got a scholarship but I didn't read it carefully. Did they say this on the scholarship letter?

Visits, Admit Days, and Open Houses / Re: Loyola - Los Angeles
« on: March 17, 2005, 11:05:44 PM »
You know, I also have this love-hate relationship with LA, and I've lived here quite a while.  I think LA itself sucks ass, but the surrounding cities are nice.  I would not mind living/ working in places like Irvine, Pasadena, Santa Clarita, etc. I am definitely in favor of suburban living.  I think Loyola would give you a solid chance in these secondary markets around LA, and it might be a better area to live in.

I cannot see myself living in LA forever, but I cannot see myself ever leaving CA for good, if that makes sense.  The secondary cities in CA- San Diego, San Jose, Irvine, etc. are really nice, in my opinion.

That's my outlook too, on the whole Loyola situation. I really don't want to work in L.A. Did an internship there for a few months and hated the commute. I went to school in Irvine so I love the area and I also like the appeal of San Diego which has a lower cost of living. I just like the 'burbs in general. I like being away from the noise but being within distance to go to a concert or play whenever I want in L.A. I would probably choose Loyola over USD just for the greater options if they would just send me some money ;)

Starresky: I personally didn't like Cardozo's campus (or lack thereof) very much.  It looks like you have some wonderful options from which to choose already (yay for USD for you!  I'm dying to hear from them and end this crazy cycle).  Congratulations!

Yeah, I do like a school with a campus. I am still looking forward to my visit but I really think after UIUC accepted me today, I can't really justify going to Cardozo with it's high tuition and strictly regional rep when I love California so much :)

Oh yea.  I am anticipating hearing from schools after deposits are due at others, so i will be putting down about 3-4

Same here. I got some deadlines that are coming before I even visit some schools so I gotta put down the deposit for a few of them!

Choosing the Right Law School / Re: Fordham Status Check

Recently, like in the last week, people have said their Pended status changed to Accepted, so I don't know how accurate that date is.

I'd guess so.  It's no secret they are doing everything they can to raise their ranking by increasing their LSAT stats.

Oh I didn't know that! (On a side note, I got a good laugh from the BC rejection letter)
