How're yall all going to T14 law schools yet need lessons on dialing telephones?
Quote from: CTL on July 16, 2009, 09:42:13 AMHow is it fair that some students entering Corney in the fall get an extra week of assistance with prepping for school and what not? I feel like I'm at a disadvantage.:::disadvantages CTL::::::profits::: Seriously, though, the AOP is essentially for those of us with less-than-optimal LSAT/GPA scores (or other perceived encumberances) - to "level the playing field" versus give us an advantage. Initially, I wasn't going to attend, as I thought I could better use the time doing other things. But, after doing the reading yesterday, I figured it'll be fun, if nothing else. If you want, I'll make sure you get all the handouts and other goodies we're given that week.

eta: I'm old enough that I grew up with a rotary dial phone. Nothing was more annoying that dialing those seven numbers, just to get a message saying you have to do the area code. And then you have to redial with with 11 more numbers. Those rotary dial phones took f-ing forever.
I haven't had a home phone line in...5 years?ie. landline. is that what they're called?

You're probably too young to remember this, but there was a time when cell phones didn't exist, and the only phones people had were landlines. If you were out and about, you had to find a "payphone," in which you could make short calls for a small fee. OR you could call collect- this would charge the party you're dialing for your phone call, in case you didn't have the money for the fee. Cool, huh?
awkward follows you like a beer chasing a shot of tequila.
My office has landlines. And fax machines.
