Incoming 1Ls / Re: Just set up OneNote
« on: August 21, 2005, 02:35:47 PM »
one more question:  this probably applies to OneNote or any other program anyone would be using to take notes.

So you're typing along in class, and want to insert a symbol, like a Pi, Delta, or that little section thing.  Instead of Typing Alt+206F (i think thats it for delta but could be wrong), or going to Character map, or Instert>symbol... is there a better way to do this?  Knowing I'm going to use those three symbols alot, can I set them to a menu button, or at least a keyboard shortcut (or unused function key)?   

Anyone have any ideas?  I know i'm not the only one who thought of this... and I'd rather not just use "P" and "D" because I think the symbol stands out more on re-read

Could a few people post the templates they are using with Onenote? Maybe we could find a website to upload them to and share. That would be awesome. Anybody interested?

just bought this program today (based on this thread and the few others about it), $39 @ staples (after rebate)... I start 1L next week and I would like to see how other people have it all set up.  I am not really sure how to go about it, as I am inexperienced with the program, and, more importantly, with law school in general.  Any advice would be great

Incoming 1Ls / Re: Has anyone here taken the GMAT? Impressions?

the GMAT is also, in general, less stress than the LSAT.  for example, i'm taking the GMAT some time between now and the first day of class, but i don't have to decide exactly when until a few days beforehand.  And if i f*ck up... I can just take it again and again and again.  I think there is a mandatory 3-week waiting period before retaking, but even so, i'm under the impresson that schools generally take your highest GMAT (whereas the LSAT is obviously averaged).  The result is that its not a big deal to retake the GMAT at will, whereas we all know the debate over re-taking the LSAT  (is it worth it, etc)

I too haven't seen much of this math since high school (and I was actually a finance major undergrand... sad eh) so i am taking my time with it, but I will get it out of the way before LS starts so I at least have the option of applying for JD/MBA.  Also you get your score right away.  Pretty cool.

I'll be a 'Nova 1L too.  I've already moved into my new place, in Manayunk.  I'm living in a cool converted mill building walking distance from the Main St bars, restaurants, etc (good stuff for the weekends).  The drive to campus is about 15/20 min on the back roads (or a gamble on the expressway) but the drive is not so bad, and I'm happy being in a more urban area and closer to the city.  Hit me up if you need any info on the area or apartments.

I had a dream that I showed up to my International Finance final completely umprepared, was going to fail, and that this was going to prevent me from graduating the next week.  I woke up in a panic only to remember that graduatiton was three weeks ago -- and the exam was over a month of aincent history to me.  Only school/exam anxiety dream I can remember ever having.. weird that this sort of thing would start AFTER college graduation.

camden is one of the most runned down ghettos in the nation. im pretty sure theyve been the murder capital on a few occasions.

i'd ask them to throw in a gun permit and bullet proof vest before i'd commit to anything

they're the current murder capital, in fact
first timers I believe... this is truly a big step for the people of camden, an honor...

I have a question...where are good places to buy furniture (not Ikea)??

i just furnished my apartment almost entirely at a place called Levitz Furniture Galleries, near the king of prussia mall.  bedroom set, couches, tables.... all delivered and installed quickly, and all pretty good quality.  definately stay away from ikea -- everybody knows that sh*t will fall apart with a quickness.  i got barstools from someplace called Mr. Bar Stool on 2nd and Arch downtown, and as for my desk/office (I figure I need a pretty big workspace set up), I will probably go to the office furniture warehouse on the south end of main street in Manayunk (right before the diner)... I hear they have a bunch of good stuff for a home office.  and if you're looking for more of the little things, the pier 1 on city ave (just past the light at belmont) is closing so everything is like 80% off... hope this helps

thanks to both of you for your useful replies (about traffic, parking, and bball tix)

I'm going to be a 2l at villanova and will answer any questions you guys might have.  Good pick with Manayunk - you'll have a lot of fun, but the commute to school can be bad sometimes.  Find someone who knows the back roads and learn that way.  Driving on 76 with no traffic will be a few minutes faster, but 76 can easily turn a 15 minute trip into an hour trip.  The back way is always 20-25 minutes.

definately true.  i grew up in wynnewood (lower merion twp) so i sortof know the back roads (though we moved before i started driving)... also i have cousins around here who have promised to teach me the way.  the good news is that i can actually see the expressway from one of the windows in my apt, its kind of like my own personal traffic report.   at least i'm down here early enough that i can have it all figured out before school starts.

i heard a rumor that the parking situation was a little rough on campus, any truth to that?

this thread lacks momentum


ok anyway i moved up here three weeks ago from New Orleans... and yes i miss the dirty dirty south, but no i dont miss those 100 degree days (graduation day was f'in miserable)...  i'm enjoying my new pad in the Manayunk section of philly. 

when the rest of you (how many are there out there?) get on up here to philly, Manayunk is the spot we should all meet for drinks before we start at 'nova.  hey, it sure beats meeting people the old-fashioned and awkward way (at orientation-type events...)

PS - does anyone know if we have a realistic shot of getting any basketball tickets this season?  this will be my first time attending to a school that actually has a sports team its proud of
