Anyone know when the packet comes out for the writing competition, and when it's due?

right after finals (I think the same day) and then it's due around the end of the month

Can anyone talk to me about loans and when I should be worried about that?

I only want to take loans out for tuition.  I have enough saved up in order to pay for room and board, including books, on my own.  As of today, they've already sent me a letter about the loan system, but it's a little cryptic, and I'm wondering which loans are best.

Can I take it all out on Gradplus?  Is it about 40k per year?  What are you folks doing with your loans?  Which have the lowest interest?  (Sorry for the barrage of questions, but I'm trying to figure this out.)

http://www.lawschooldiscussion.org/prelaw/index.php/topic,95627.350.html for questions, but I'll answer this.

Take as many stafford/perkins as you can. They are low interest, government subsidized rates. After that, I went grad plus for the rest - we had a variable and a flat interest rate one. They should be statistically the same, but I recommend taking the flat interest rate one due to the size of the loan and how long it will be before you pay it - interest rates could do anything in the next 6 years.
I'm posting constructively.

Posner contracts people (only nerfco and buffett I think)...

What's the reading for tomorrow, and did we finish going over Thursday's reading on Thursday?  Thanks...

677-94, and yes, we made it through Sheets.


All of these new 1Ls popping up recently... what's going on with that?

New Jersey public transportation bump

I turned around to say Shawshank but you weren't paying attention. That was a really funny exchange.

I always feel like the other sections get all the gems. That Shawshank Redemption thing would have been pretty funny to witness. Not that Miles isnt precious, in and of himself.

I have no idea why I decided to stop lurking and say something. Probably because I am searching for new and interesting ways to avoid outlining.

I cant really think of any good clues that wouldn't totally give it away. I guess I'll go with I am not from the midwest. I would be super impressed if you guessed who I am from what I have said thus far.

So one student decided we're having contracts on Thursday...awesome!!

Somebody bump when LRW grades come out.

There's no reason why they shouldn't come out today, but survey says they won't.

Are they supposed to come out this early?  I thought I heard they usually come out during finals.

I've heard last week before finals (so next week), but I like to dream big!
