Hi pluto!  That reception sounds like an excellent idea.  Everytime I tell my husband about the type of support I'll need while doing this, I think he thinks I'm exagerating. I keep saying that I can't skate through this like undergrad. 

I bought the Gilbert 1st year books, and I've started Civ. Pro.  But, to be quite honest, I think my paralegal books are a better overview.  I mean they do outline it quite well, but my undergrad books have more helpful charts, and checklists.  I don't know... I haven't read that much of it yet... we'll see.

EXCITED? YEAH!

Hey guys, I have come to join!!!!

Yanky, I haven't gotten my orientation stuff or my Intro Assignments since I just got in last week, but I figure my info will probably be the same as yours even though I will be in Harrisburg. You think your paralegal books are better for Civ Pro? I took that in a paralegal class as well; maybe I should have kept my book! :D

I AM SO EXCITED!!!!

Hello everyone... sorry I've been "out".  I've had a sick cat all summer and I had to put her to sleep today.  Extremely depressing, but even the vet said it was best, she was just suffering too much.


Soooooo, I am challenging everyone to please tell me good things; I want to try to be vicariously happy.  So, what are good things that are happening in everyone's life... I'll start, I am going to be fulfilling a dream by going to law school in a few short weeks!

Oh Yanky, I am so sorry to hear about your cat. But take it from someone who worked as a vet tech for years in cat hospitals, sometimes euthanasia is the kindest thing you can do for your friend.

On a happier note, I got my orientation packet yesterday. Woo-hoo! I am soo excited!! I wish they would put the books for class and the intro class on the website; I am dying to get my books!!! Do you know when they are doing that?

Thanks legalkitty, my heart is just breaking.

About your books... Widener is NEVER fast about those things.  I expect them to be posted about a week before orientation.

I understand. My cats mean absolutely the world to me.

I am just eager to get everything in order, you know? All I am waiting on now is my awards letter; I will feel better when I get that.

I can certainly understand the eager anticipation!  You will soon learn that Widener will drive you crazy... nothing is efficient.  What awards letter?  Did you win an award?  ???

I have not received my "awards" letter yet, which I am sure will just consist of the 18.5 from the government, but that is okay with me. I got my bill from the Bursar for the fall semester which does not reflect any kind of loan, but I am assuming that it is on the way. When I called FA the other day, they said that they had everything they needed and were just waiting I guess for the final amount from the gov,

I know the 18,5 is supposed to be guaranteed, but I will feel better when I get it. I just want all this money business out of the way!! :P

Sorry, I guess that was kind of confusing. The FA people were just calling the financial aid your "awards." Kind of silly, I know. And since I will have to pay back my loans, I guess it is an "award" I am giving myself!!
