Choosing the Right Law School / Re: so who turned in a stetson deposit

Sent mine in a few weeks ago

Hey if I am going to be stuck back in the classroom for anther three years. I want some good scenery. ;)

I thought this at first too, but now I think it could be more of a detriment than anything else - I don't really need the distraction. Plus, I haven't been in any real co-ed environments since high school. That was 10 years ago! As an engineer at Penn State I sure didn't see any women in class. And as a professional engineer, I sure as hell don't see them at work, other than our office manager and accountant - both of whom are old enough to be my mother. I'm realy curious to see how I react to suddenly being in a co-ed environment for the first time in a decade.

I don't see men as a distraction. I just see them as a past time ;)

Haha! You and I seem to think a lot alike. Frankly, I will welcome any distraction that comes in the form of a hot guy.

and Burgh: glad to have made you feel better about your superficial and shallow priorities. My thinking is that if I have to spend 3 years surrounded by the same people a lot, I better enjoy the scenery. After all, men are only good for their credit card and their eye-candy appeal, aren't they? Or did my mama teach me wrong? (I'm sure there are a few more things they're good for that the other ladies can help me with)

My daughter says men are only good for squashing bugs and opening jars....I will have to tell her grandmother there are more to add to the list. ;D

Why do guys always do this?

I must have had 5 or 6 male friends over the years that have punched walls or doors and broken their hands. And then several other who, when I go over to their house and ask about that hole in the wall, tell me it is the result of their punching. ::)

None of these guys are violent people. And I guess it is preferrable to punching a person. But I just do not get it. Most of my friends are men but I still will never understand them.

LOL....why do most women I know own more than 5 pairs of black pants???  I just gave up asking those questions or else I will start to understand and end up having to go a long shopping. :D  I would prefer to stay home and watch the race.

That is freaking hilarious!!!  I am about to bid for general principle.

The following factors were really big:

1) Job market for fiancee (makes up for the high tuition somewhat)
2) Safety of community (for da kid)
3) Overall community (beach right down the road)
4) Family nearby (always able to help watch kids and have dinners, etc.)

Most of my choices were pretty similar as far as ranking, career options, etc.  So we just went to the prettiest place we could think of.  I figure that will help make up for the lack of time I will be spending with my family.  They can at least have something nice to do while I am studying.

Wiggins Law at Campbell U

Lol....that reminds me of the police chief from the Simpsons.

As far as Stetson...I was in the store the other day with my daughter and she saw some cologne and asked if they made that where I was going to school  :-\

Who ever thought it was a good idea to teach kids to read.

Incoming 1Ls / Re: Word (MS OFFICE) or WordPerfect Suite

I am assuming that you would have both...using your preference for notes, etc.?

I can't see how one could NOT have Word nowadays.  Personally, MS Word for me.  It would take me wayyy too long to learn wordperfect to make it worth it.  I hear good things about it, but if I ever want to email a paper, share it, or do anything that required the actual file to be used by anyone other than me, I think wordperfect would make difficulties for me.

I did the one for a free laptop.  I think the Ipod is fewer offers.

Had to sign up for a bunch of offers from various companies.  They had three pages of offers and you had to choose two from each.

**Word of caution**
Read the fine print and make sure you check out the last page.  The third page of offers only had 3 total (compared to the 20+ on the first two pages).  You had to sign up for 2 out of the 3.  Most of them involved paying shipping, but the catch was you had to cancel most of the offers before the trial period ended or you would have to pay up the $$.

Here is what I did.

Page 1
Two week free trial Blockbuster Online
Free Video Professor CDs ($8 shipping)

Page 2
Order $20 from some pet catalog
Free sample tooth whitening ($6 shipping)

Page 3
1 month Vonage broadband phone (around $60 sign up)
sign up and use Discover Card at least once

(The third was DirectTV  **too expensive for me)

In the end, I shelled out less than $100 and got a really nice Sony Vaio.  I am still using the Blockbuster Online and the Vonage....really like them both.

The next time someone bad mouths Widener as an uncompetitive T4 school remind them about this:

for those of you considering Widener.

Oh yeah......check this one out

Lol....I am just yanking your chain....that is really good news about Widener.  I live near their Hburg campus.  You guys should like it there.  Go check out the new roller coaster at Hershey is awesome.

Visits, Admit Days, and Open Houses / Re: Stetson?

In my admissions packet it stated that classes start on August 20 (Sat.) which I thought was weird. When I called the admissions office to ask about scholarship money I also asked about Saturday classes and they said that full time day students can have a Saturday class, it just depends on your section (which you don't get to choose).

Are you attending for sure?  BTW, thanks for the info. on the Sat. class.  Hopefully, that isn't a section you or I will be in.
