Honestly, I've used my PDA twice since college, when I used it all the time.  Since I have my computer with me basically 24/7 now, there's really no reason to have a PDA.

thanks for everything alci, you've cost me another 500 beans or so, lol

so is there anyway to avoid the "deer in the headlights," pants down trauma that the socratic method can cause as a 1L?

what about beds? the one thing i remember from law school confidential is how important the author thought getting a good bed was, does anyone agree?

I think a good bed is something to invest in anyway. You use it every single day, why skimp? Half the reason why I'm trying to hurry up and get to school is so I can get me a nice new bed. Yay :)

My last 2 mattresses were from IKEA - the same model - the first one I had was amazing, and this one is just eh. Not sure if I wanna risk getting another dud, but a good mattress is otherwise so damn expensive.

def i just don't know if i should go all out and drop 700+ or go for something a bit more reasonable, with beds quality means more money unless theres a great sale going on
