i just ordered a padded sleeve and will just use the padded sleeve w/one of my old backpacks
probably not, but it might depend on how obvious the school name is on the bag. i'm guessing based on a few of your posts that i know where you work... and i don't think the schools are directly competitive enough for it to be a really bad thing. (unlike, e.g., wearing columbia gear at nyu)
oo, sweet! i do love free stuff. but you may get to use it yet... i'm surprised they were so lame with their decision so far. good luck.
So I have this rather nice backpack bag from the school where I work, which as it happens is not the school I'll be attending ... is it bad to use it for my school?
i am getting this one...a little pricey but i read on a forum somewhere that a law student had this bag and was able to fit all but one casebook, her laptop, water, notebook, calendar and other odds and ends in this bag. she even had pictures to prove it. even if you dont want one so big, their bags are supposed to be great and durable. they even sell cases that fit within the bags to protect your laptop from getting broken pressing against books. no matter what bag you end up with, i recommend getting something to protect your laptop because pressing it against books in a bag can crack the screen. good luck!http://www.tombihn.com/page/001/PROD/300/TB0104
