How're yall all going to T14 law schools yet need lessons on dialing telephones?

I've lived in areas with multiple area codes, so no problems with that. The last six months have been the first time I've ever lived in a huge geographic region with one area code, and apparently I'm in the only region in the country that doesn't have this +1 thing. Or maybe it does have the +1 thing and I'm doing it wrong.

How 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:::

 ;D

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.

Also, it's a week. What kind of advantage could one get in a 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.

My parents have 2 rotary phones. What a waste of money. And annoying. If the house was on fire, they'd die before they could dial 9-1-1 on those things.  :(

My parents have one, but since I've been in college, nope.

Yes. 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?

Lol.  I guess there are generational gaps within Exile.

Holy *&^%, I read this statement as "my office has landmines".  I thought this sounded like one cool office.
