Heeeyyy... I just talked to Milan about Securexam for Macs.  He said to call next week to see if they're going to go for it because they're making a decision about it within the next few days.  He's optimistic about our chances.  I asked if using Jaguar was ok and he said he'll know more then.  Hope this helps.

I have two friends who are 2L's with cars and spots and I don't mind buses.  Not that I have $600 for a Duquesne parking spot but I have to ask... is it worth the money? 

Looking forward to that Deck v Missouri case, I've been doing my work on the beach to give the illusion that I have free time. Ha!  Thanks for all the advice guys, you're making law school seem tough but exciting and not too daunting.  After browsing other schools' message boards I can say with confidence that Duquesne's posters are the friendliest and most understanding. Good luck this fall.

PS - I'm going to call again about getting software for Macs

Thanks for all the great information guys - I'm sure we'll all be seeing each other around campus this fall.  I'm definitely going to call Duquesne and push them to get the Mac version of Securexam for tests because the theories on the new dean being proactive are probably right and everyone with a Mac should put in a quick friendly call.

I also just got my information packet, but unlike onepoint's mom, mine refused to stick it on her back windshield - which is depressing, because my brother's college sticker is proudly displayed on her car.  Hmmm.

Shadyside seems like a great area and I'm so happy I got a great apartment there.  Hanging around undergrad kids doesn't seem like fun at all (not to mention the bad influences...) so it's nice to hear that the area has a lot of law students.

How late are the libraries open... are any 24 hour?

I didn't get into town until Friday night. We went to Smokey Joe's and the Z Lounge, they were okay. On Saturday afternoon I was at Louie's Little Corner Bar on Liberty in Bloomfield and then somewhere else down the street later on that night. I don't really know the "good" bars to go to, although my roommates do because they've lived there for a year already.  After walking through the neighborhoods, I'm thinking I might like the Shadyside bars better because they have a smaller feel to them.

This weekend I was in Pittsburgh for the first time and it was awesome! I'll be living in Shadyside with two Pitt students and I'm pretty sure our apartment is cheaper than most. I went out on the Southside one night and Bloomfield the next and had fun both times.  I really like the city and I'm looking forward to moving in sometime in August.  The one thing I forgot to do was see Duquesne...

I haven't got any financial info, but that's probably because I messed up applying for loans and grants and other things.  Still need to consolidate my undergrad and car loans... I am very behind.  Congrats on your loans and good luck with the rest of your aid.

Looks like I'll be in Pittsburgh this weekend looking around.  Too bad I have no idea where I'm going, because whenever I ask potential roommates with difficult questions such as "where is your place located" they respond with "close to Duquesne" instead of something specific.  I also get the feeling that no one knows where exactly they live.  Using Mapquest to get around a city I already live in sounds a bit ridiculous - is Pittsburgh really that hard to navigate??

I hear Southside is the best place to live because it's more fun.  Is that why you're living there?  I think most of the apartments I'm touring this weekend will be in Shadyside and Squirrel Hill... are they walkable, urban neighborhoods?

Thanks for all the info... glad I didn't miss out on a super secret orientation. Let's cross our fingers for mac compatibility on tests.  I'm visiting Pittsburgh for the first time June 17-19 and hoping to secure house tours the entire three days...  staying alone at a friend's house that weekend (she'll be 2L at Duq) in Squirrel Hill so I'm looking forward to checking out the area.
PS the registrar sounds like the place to be

Check out it's great for finding a place to live.

I hope the network is compatible with macs too.  There's no way I'm ponying up $1000+ for a computer I don't even want. 

Onto the ?'s

Have any incoming students received material other than newsletter-type information?  It would be nice if the school acted like they remember I exist.

I'm visiting Pittsburgh for the first time in two weeks.  Is it easy to get an apartment?   I guess Southside and Shadyside seem to be the #1 places to live and I'd like to rent as soon as I can. 

Seems like everyone from the other schools has been to some sort of meet and greet.  Did Duquesne have a secret 0L meeting I didn't know about??

Called today (Tues May 17) - the waitlist has officially been activated.  Unfortunately, there's no movement on my account as of yet. I'll send them a letter.  Good luck everyone!
