Incoming 1Ls / Re: Ladies' suits.. where to go?

There is a Brooks Brothers outlet near me. I tried on a couple of suits there a while back and they were really nice,  about $300, which seemed expensive to me, but I guess its not bad for a Brooks Brothers suit. I'll probably go back and buy one before school starts.

I have an Ann Taylor suit that I absolutely love - classic, high quality, and comfortable - but I went back a while ago to find another suit and I couldn't find any that I liked, so I think they may be a bit hit or miss.

Hey, not too bad, congratulations!!! You are not OUT anywhere yet, which is more than I can say for me. Good luck with those pending schools or at UNC!

I've been checking my mail everyday looking for my Hastings finaid letter and trying to be I finally called. The woman was very nice and helpful. Apparently they mailed my letter on March 25  ???  She double checked the address and was very apologetic that I haven't received it yet, and she is going to mail it out again today. So, I guess if anyone hasn't received their Hastings finaid letter, it is probably a good idea to call  ;)

Yes, I was at Delta too! The proctors were really nice, and I also got out earlier than expected. I only had to drive about an hour, not too big of a deal, but many of the bay area people I talked to stayed in a hotel the night before. Definitely do whatever it takes to make sure you feel totally comfortable.

All the Hastings students that I spoke with were really nice and agreed that the ultra-competitive image is totally exagerated. One of the Profs on the faculty panel said the the curve is 20-60-20 - so 20%get some version of A's, 60 % some version of B's, and 20% C+ or below, so 80% are getting either A's or B's which sounds fine to me. The students also said discussing gpa and rank are totally taboo and that a lot of students partcipate in study it seems a lot less frightening to me now.

I actually took the December test. But there were a lot of Bay Area people on that day too...and people from Chico, Eureka, Davis - a lot of people who were supposed to be at Sac State but were relocated to the Stockton site. I actually liked my test site, the people were really nice and it was very organized, so it turned out fine in the end.  :)

There are a couple of test centers in the Sacto area if it comes down to it. Although don't us Sac State - I was supposed to test there, but a couple of weeks before the test they said they had a conflict and couldn't serve as a test site, so I ended up in Stockton.

zakrob is our blended name, actually, and some of our friends/family call us that as a couple.
He calls me cutie, or ailment - which started when in a one month period I broke my foot, had tonsilitis, and passed out at work.  :-[

Congrats, that is so awesome!!!  ;D ;D ;D
That is a tough decision, but with so many great options, you really can't go wrong. I'm guessing you are trying to decide between Harvard and NYU?
