I have a Mac. I had to do everything on PCs in the school's computer labs. It sucks, but having my Mac is worth it. Windows is just...what's the word...horrible.

You will be able to check the status of your reports and stuff, but you really can't do the online apps with the Mac. Sorry!

Yeah, you'll just have to use a PC computer at school/work or find a nice friend who will let you use their computer. 

If you're still having problems with the applications on the PC, you'll probably have to change the settings.  To do this open Internet Explorer and go to Preferences>Security and choose custom security level.  Look for something similar to ActiveX Omniform and hit enable.  You should be able to see all the applications.

I love my mac, and its worth it to go to campus and use the lab there to do my apps. Oh well, I'm pretty sure I don't mind having a nice clean virus-free computer. ;)

I have a six year old G4 and a brand new iBook, and I adore both.

Plus I didn't really mind doing my apps at work; now that I'm through with them I'm back to just being bored all day.

You all realize you're going to go through all this again at law school, right? Most require you to use a PC for exams, and the exam software isn't supported by Macs.
