Title: University of Virginia Class of 2010
Post by: BelleFille on April 02, 2007, 08:10:51 AM
Roll Call!

In this thread, we will get to know our fellow classmates.  Who here is decided, or pretty much decided, on UVA next year?

Nope, I went to the first ASW.  I am glad to hear you liked it!  Anyone else?

WAHOOWAH!  :)

If you've been reading the ASW thread, you know where I stand.  I have one last week of ASW/Visits to make.  I should probably have my mind made up by Sunday.  But baring something really crazy happening, I am going to UVA.  Sometimes you know a place is just perfect for you.

I've been decided on UVa for 3.5 months.  It's good to see so many people excited about UVa law.

I'm not sure a Grizzly Bear would fit in with Snowpants or no pants. Then again, Grizzly Bears don't wear pants... or maybe a grizzly bear wearing snow pants?

I'm going to talk to my parents tonight, and if they agree that if I'm this sure I don't need to go to NYU's ASD, I'm all in. I'm that sure. But I'm also sure they'll say "No, keep your options open, check NYU out first".

I'm definitely going to one as Borat, banana hammock and all, seeing as I'll already have that from my failed softball bet.  Man, I need to do some serious getting back into shape between now and then so I don't emotionally scar anyone.  Nevermind that it will be in the middle of February...  oy vey.

Johnny, you should prob still visit NYU just so you don't have to wonder "what if..."  I'm still visiting UChi, but my mind is sort of made up for UVa.  But I do just want to check out the place (not to mention the fact my plane tix are non-refundable lol)

And about all these Feb club themes--don't they change every year?  I don't think we can plan in advance for that!

Well, some things will probably happen out of habit.  For example, I'd bet you that there will be a Pirates-themed party.  Probably cops and robbers, etc.

Also, NYU might have jut stolen me away. Sure, it's only 25k total, but that makes it about the same price as UVA... Damn, this is tough.

And yes, my tix are non-refundable as well.  :D

Haha well I thought the same about you!  Yep, we'll be meeting there, although I guess our hearts will be in different places - sad that we won't be classmates! 

As for why Michigan, a lot of reasons, most of them personal (kind of just came down to the general feel of the school, which I really liked), and that Michigan and Chicago aren't that far apart when it comes to opportunities that I'll be limiting myself horribly by going to Michigan.  And Michigan is stronger in international programs, which I like a lot.

You? What made you decide in favor of UVA?

I think it was really the community and collegial atmosphere that put UVa over the top.  Everyone that I met was awesome (in the way that I could see myself being friends with them).  The academics are strong, I loved the town, and it's extremely laid back.  Plus...the weather!!  :)  I don't think that my opps will really be limited by going to UVA over UChi...I'm going where I think I'll be the most happy.  Still looking forward to visiting UChi, but now the stress of looking for apts, asking students questions is sort of off, haha.

I don't see why not.  The other thing to remember is that the Aid lady mentioned how, as some people turn down scholarship offers, that money gets redistributed.  I know that's not something you can rely on...  but it is something.

I actually specifically asked her about that yesterday, before I found out about NYU. She said that it's uncommon, that they have a very good track record of distributing money in such a way the first time that there is no excess left over. Who knows, maybe I'll be blown away by NYU, and that before August, they will suddenly join Division I in everything and become a football and basketball powerhouse.

Do they even have a mascot?  Maybe the NYU Lattes?  And I don't mean that in jest, because having a giant cup symbolizing a beverage that is really just a more legal form of speed would kick some serious ass.

Johnny -- even if the two schools are the same price, go where you will be most happy.  The two schools will both yield superb career options.  You loved UVA, and were willing to shell out full price as of this time yesterday -- so news from NYU doesn't change that.

Of course I am biased, because...

I just sent in my seat deposit this morning :-) Go Hoos!

 



Congrats!!!

Yeah, I'm still trying to keep level-headed. After all, all NYU has done is levelled the financial playing field; they still have to beat out UVA on merit, which I'm not sure they can. As I've stated before, the possible career advantages at NYU are in areas that I wouldn't plan on taking advantage of anyway. NYU would have to absolutely blow me away.

So it turns out the mascot itself is a Bobcat.  Just that he likes to wear violet.  That's not weird, am I right?

NYU = about $60K per year COA x 3 = $180 - $25 = $155K (if you stay within their housing allotment, which I doubt will cover the total expenses of living in NYC). I think the real thing about NYU is that to live close to the school and have that  "community" feel, you will have to shell out a significant sum of money... I would guess more than their allottes housing estimate.  So, most people live out in Brooklyn or around cheaper parts of NYC.  If you liked the community feel of UVA, having an urban school where costs are so prohibitive that people are scattered all throughout the borroughs and NJ would probably not give that same feel.  So, I guess costs would likely be higher.

UVA = $51K per year COA x 3 = $153K.  However, that COA takes into account living in a single, which is MUCH more expensive than living in a double.  I will be paying about 425 a month plus 75 in utilities (someone said utilities are 120 at Ivy Gardens, so I will round up to 150 for having an extra person then split between two people), so really $500 per month.  Singles are 700-800 a month at least plus the total utility burden, and this is all included in UVA's revised COA estimate.  So, I don't think the increase will really necessarily be as much as they say.  So, for UVA I would guess costs would be slightly lower.

I could be totally wrong about all of this, for what its worth...





Regarding NYU, I would plan on getting the student housing first (which I hear fosters a strong community as well), then worry about where to live after that later.

As for UVA, I hope you're right.

Plus, I figure in order to take advantage of being in NYC, I would probably have to go way over budget (shows, sports, real food, etc.). We shall see.

Yeah, I think to some extent that would factor into the decision, even with the 25k from NYU:  Live like a pauper in NY, or live like a King in C'ville.  Seeing as you enjoyed C'ville a ton anyway...  seems simple to me, but then again, I'm also heavily biased.

I'm from NYC, and it's ridiculously expensive. A night at the bars -- even down by NYU where it's cheaper than the Upper East Side where I usually go -- runs you at least $60.00. A meal for one, even lunch, is usually $15.00. Everything has a price, and it's seldom cheap. I'd have a hard time living in NYC on a $200,000 salary, I think.

That's why you live in Brooklyn!

Srsly tho, you can def live in NY and be frugal but still have fun.  I'm a poor and I still do a lot--you just have to know where to go.  :)

If you want appropriateness, move it to General Board for 0Ls; I've seen lots of X School Class of '10 threads there. If you want traffic, though, I'd keep it here or move to Apps/Where should I go. I don't know if you can move it; try asking Andrew?

NYU = about $60K per year COA x 3 = $180 - $25 = $155K (if you stay within their housing allotment, which I doubt will cover the total expenses of living in NYC). I think the real thing about NYU is that to live close to the school and have that  "community" feel, you will have to shell out a significant sum of money... I would guess more than their allottes housing estimate.  So, most people live out in Brooklyn or around cheaper parts of NYC.  If you liked the community feel of UVA, having an urban school where costs are so prohibitive that people are scattered all throughout the borroughs and NJ would probably not give that same feel.  So, I guess costs would likely be higher.

UVA = $51K per year COA x 3 = $153K.  However, that COA takes into account living in a single, which is MUCH more expensive than living in a double.  I will be paying about 425 a month plus 75 in utilities (someone said utilities are 120 at Ivy Gardens, so I will round up to 150 for having an extra person then split between two people), so really $500 per month.  Singles are 700-800 a month at least plus the total utility burden, and this is all included in UVA's revised COA estimate.  So, I don't think the increase will really necessarily be as much as they say.  So, for UVA I would guess costs would be slightly lower.

I could be totally wrong about all of this, for what its worth...





Yeh--you are quoting the in-state numbers for UVa, to be clear.  Tuition is (probably) going up to 33.5k in-state according to their letter.  All-in, then, for an out-of-stater, would be more like 56k x 3 = 168k.  Still, the COA was adjust up a good bit & Virginia students with whom I spoke mostly said they don't use it all.

Well, then take it from me, they need to visit C'ville.  That was why I was about to drop UVA from consideration.  Then I visited, and realized I was being a moron.  There's a lot of the big city perks, I feel, minus the crime, congestion and crappy weather.  But really, if a big city is someone's concern, they need to visit.  They will be blown away.

Reason #1 I should just go to UVA:

Throughout the negotiation process with NYU, my attitude has been very, shall we say, cavalier? Clearly, UVA is in my blood.

Post by: Johnny Stuffs His Mouth on April 04, 2007, 11:12:59 AM
Johnny -- how undecided are you at this point?  What would NYU have to do to sway you?

Still rather very. It would have to absolutely blow me away, at least as much (and probably more so) as UVA. They're financially pretty much even, so I have to judge on merits. UVA has several things in its favor though: college sports and proximity to SO.

Did you end up going to the Penn business? Congrats, by the way! Or whatever you say.

Nah, I talked it over with the rents for about a week, and I came to the conclusion it wasn't worth it.  I very well might have enjoyed Penn, perhaps even equally to UVA.  But there are some other outside factors, proximity to the SO, weather, QoL (before anyone jumps on me for this, let me just say that, trust me, C'ville more accurately represents my personal QoL, which is all I mean by that) and again, that whole intangible gut feeling deal.  My gut said UVA, and I tend to go with my gut.

Hey, UVA isn't exactly showering me with love and affection (in the form of money, though Cindy is very prompt on all my questions). Say what you will, but NYU has been very attentive. In fact, I'd give them a total score of 25k attention units.

Not that I don't think it's a heinous thing to do, but you do realize that telling a story about a guy who bangs a hooker or whatever at his bachelor party is a bit like telling a story about another Starbucks opening up in Manhattan.  *&^% happens with some frequency.

Moral extracted for Johnny: Don't bang any hookers in NY, but if you do, you won't be special and you WILL be a feminine hygiene product.

This will be my first (and likely last) useful LSD tip: utilize the 'quote' function. Often. I can't remember the last time I replied instead of quoting. It really helps everyone follow the train of thought better.

Go ahead, practice. It took me a while before I got comfortable with it. Some people (like alpha) are still terrible at it, so don't worry about looking foolish.

But, come on, we all know the implied ellipsis in your handle actually ends w/ 'hookers' G-strings.'  So, yeah, Mr. Johnny Stuffs His Mouth with Hookers' G-strings, how judgemental can you possibly be?  I mean, seriously, I've seen your secret facebook photo album.*


* I haven't really. This is a joke. I'm not even friends with Johnny on facebook. :::dies on the inside a tad:::

I'm easy to find on facebook. I'm the guy in the LSD group that looks like me. Also, my last name is Gniadek. There aren't many of us.

As for hookers' G-strings: do as I say, not as I do. This is my glass house; I can throw all the stones I want.

Yes, but throwing stones isn't going to help much w/ the mouth herpies.

True story: my girlfriend has forehead herpes.

I think you're right re. dancerina.

This will be my first (and likely last) useful LSD tip: utilize the 'quote' function. Often. I can't remember the last time I replied instead of quoting. It really helps everyone follow the train of thought better.

Go ahead, practice. It took me a while before I got comfortable with it. Some people (like alpha) are still terrible at it, so don't worry about looking foolish.

#@*(~#@(% I'm at work!  I guarantee you, pretty much all my quoting errors happen between the hours of 9-5, M-W.  The State of Ohio won't give me a mouse with a wheel.  I have a midget chair.  And I'm pretty sure my desk belonged to some sort of SS officer in Nazi Germany.  Long story on that one, but yeah...  Ohio?  Don't ever go there.

Nothing exciting... sometimes her forehead breaks out when she gets stressed out.

I didn't even know there was one.  I'm not a huge facebooker, until I guess the last couple days with the UVA '10 thing.  I've checked it more in the last two days (5 times) then I probably did in the preceding 3 months.

Hey kids.....another UVA 0L here.  I was at the 2nd ASW.

Did we meet? Did we maybe meet?

Yeah, we met. I was the random black girl who pulled you aside and said I knew you from LSD.  There were only about 5 black people there, so you might recall this moment. :-\

Oh yeah! I think I asked if you were MCB! Oops...

Like I've said 10 times now.  I'll see you in C'ville in August, John.  It's a done deal.

Yes, they do.  It's nowhere like softball there, but they have it.  We'll have to work on the pinwheel play.  We'll be f*cking unstoppable.

I'm going to go back to my old training, knocking beer cans off the bench at 30 yards.  Bring your best 7.  We could huck and run you guys the whole game, but that'd be too easy.  We'll just break you up the line, and then my gorilla ass will lumber in for the score, just to rub it in.

My prediction?:  Wahoos 15, Quakers 2.

As for my knees: oh yeah. Well, it doesn't affect my speed, just my durability.

Also, not that this is impressive, but I'm 5'11" and can dunk a golf ball. So there.

And like I said: I play insane lock-down D. You may get the disc, but you will not score on me.

Wrong. XII. 2. D. of the Ultimate Handbook, 9th Ed.

The following actions result in a loss of possession and a check: If the thrower catches his/her own throw. However, if the disc is touched by another player during its flight it is considered a complete pass and is not a turnover.

any of you looking for a place in cville?

i'm currently a UVa undergrad. my lease at Ivy Gardens ends mid-July but I'm trying to move out June 8th or so.

If you're interested in taking over my sublease, email me at [email protected] I'll throw in $350

http://www.ivygarden.com/

The complex is very close to Darden and the Law school campuses. 5-10 minute walk.

http://www.ivygarden.com/apartments_2B_D.htm

2 bedroom, 2 full baths, and 1 den.

My place is on the third, top, floor so you'll avoid annoying upstairs neighbors pounding down on the floor.

I went to NY with my mom who was pushing for Columbia big time... by the end of the trip she was convinced that Columbia was trying to make their buildings unattractive. I guess we're both spoiled by UVA Undergrad.

So cyall next year.

Hey guys, here's a list from last year's Admitted Student's Forum of stuff you need to do before you get to the 'Ville. So, here's stuff you need to get done in the next 4 months:

SECTION A: SPECIFIC TO U.Va.

1) HEALTH - Complete required vaccinations and return Pre-Entrance Health Form by August 1. The form can be found at: http://uvaforms.virginia.edu/uvaformsfiles/std-hlth/pre-ent-health.pdf

2) HEALTH INSURANCE - As part of the pre-entrance health requirement, determine whether you are electing Chickering insurance (check box on form), or using an alternate insurance provider (provide proof of insurance coverage when you return the pre-entrance health form)

3) LAPTOP - If purchasing Law School Laptop Bundle, place order by July 14 for pickup by August 14.

4) SYSTEMS ACCESS - sign up for U.Va. e-mail, LawForums, and ISIS

5) TUITION - Determine if you are going to sign up for the Monthly Payment Option offered through Tuition Management Systems. Tuition payment due by August 11

6) FINANCIAL AID - Besides all the things you need to do for your specific loans, also check the Financial Aid Status page in AdmitWeb. Click on the link for "Financial Aid Award Information" and follow the instructions on the page.

7) REGISTRATION - Complete Law School Registration during orientation - Monday, August 21, from 9am - 10am. In addition, complete Final University Registration by 5pm on Friday, August 25 via ISIS (online system)

 SECTION ASSIGNMENTS - Posted as of 5pm, Friday, August 18 adjacent to Student Records in Slaughter Hall

9) ORIENTATION - You should have received a packet with complete orientation information by now. If you haven't, get in touch with the Law School. That packet contains some crucial to-do items.

10) TRANSCRIPTS - Ask your undergrad institution to send an official transcript directly to the Admissions Office before registration.

SECTION B: PERSONAL ADMINISTRIVIA

1) Confirm moving arrangements

2) Book travel arrangements to get to Charlottesville!

3) Housing - confirm and sign leases; activate utilities such as phone, cable, Internet service, etc.

4) USPS (http://www.usps.gov) - change address

5) Banks - Set up new accounts, update address, etc.

6) Car registration and other DMV stuff

7) All other insurance plans - Car, House, Rental, etc.

 IRS - notify IRS about change of address

9) Transfer prescriptions if applicable

10) Notify other institutions - credit card companies, medical providers, financial institutions, former employers, etc.

Someone else added that the guys have to let the Selective Service know that we've moved, but I doubt the Army would want me anyway. Hope this list is helpful.

If you really feel like Philly is a "fun" city... well, I guess you've got to do what's best for you. Personally, I think Philly is horrible; it's pretty well documented that the entire city suffers from an inferiority complex, and they take pride in being assholes (example: go to Pat's for a cheesesteak). But to each her own.

Still, in a last-ditch effort, I'll say this: 1 thing I realized at NYU is it doesn't matter what the surroundings are like if you don't have the right people to share them with. I've heard wonderful things about Penn students, so I guess you can't go wrong there. But if it comes down to you thinking you'd be bored in Charlottesville... then that's a function of the people you're with. I can't even begin to describe how excited I am at the prospect of ACC sports every weekend, Febclub, not-bad weather, concerts, and cheapness everywhere I go.

I will say this, though: your not attending brings UVA down a notch in my book.

I've heard wonderful things about Penn students, so I guess you can't go wrong there. But if it comes down to you thinking you'd be bored in Charlottesville... then that's a function of the people you're with. I can't even begin to describe how excited I am at the prospect of ACC sports every weekend, Febclub, not-bad weather, concerts, and cheapness everywhere I go.

I will say this, though: your not attending brings UVA down a notch in my book.


Johnny is right. I went to a TINY college (1800 students, and half of the juniors were abroad at any given time). It was in an extremely small, crappy, and economically depressed "city" in Maine. I had a really, really good time. It really does depend who you're with.

I'm sorry, but we need closure. I'm afraid I can never speak to you again.

Nah, you can come. But I'm not going to be nice to you.

Well, I'll be nice to you. But deep down it will hurt my soul.

Big congrats to both of you!  Johnny, this was a long time coming!

Swing9this, besides the buildings, anything else sway you?

Sorry for the somewhat delayed response... but to answer your question I'm just not a big city kind of guy. I really enjoyed all of the food options in Manhattan, but the noise and the traffic were too much for me. I'm also the kind of person that really enjoys having their car at all times for road trips and stuff like that, and driving in NY seemed like more of a hassle than anything else. The main campus in Columbia was very impressive, but I went to see the law school first and it just wasn't doing it for me. I'm kind of from the south and I didn't feel any connection with the people I saw walking around.

I can see how someone who really wanted to live in the city would love Columbia, it just wasn't for me (which is unfortunate, I was enthralled by their International Law w/ China program).

Well *&^%. You're probably making the right decision. UVA is perfect for me because I don't want to grow up.

TITCR.  I don't know, I think it comes down to the following.  I plan on going to a firm.  So I have a long, long time from now to live in a major city.  And yeah, part of the attraction to UVA for me is that it is like Undergrad, just minus a lot of the negative parts.  Any guy here ever been at a party and had to listen to a girl talk about how much her friends suck, and after about the 6th "ohmigod" you're beginning to wish there was rat poison in that beer she's holding?  Or ladies, ever had a giant steaming pile of pink-shirt clad, popped collar sporting feminine hygiene product start grinding awkwardly on you at a party with no apparent introduction?  And we've all seen crazy-redneck-wife-beater-I'm 130 pounds-but-I'll-fight-everyone-here guy.  Yeah.  This is what happens when you go to a large, land-grant university like dancerina or I did.  It's diverse.  You get plenty of very intelligent people.  And you get plenty of mouth-breathing troglodytes.

But the appeal about going to a place like UVA law, is it's all the fun, all the good times, minus the stupid people.  I'm looking forward to going to the bars and not having to break up a fight for once.  I'm looking forward to talking about law, politics, philosophy, something with a little weight on it, at parties.  I'm looking forward to not having "that guy" ruin my good time.  Although that's probably a futile effort, as "that guy" is f*cking everywhere.

But yeah, I look at UVA, and I see a whole lot of potential for fun, just like in UG.  Only without all the elements of UG that make me so glad I'm leaving and coming to UVA. ;)

Dude, absolutely.  I plan on doing the Ivy thing for only a year, and then it's definitely upgrade time.  And if you can get a roommate soon, you'd probably make it in time to Phase 3, in which case we'd live next(ish) to each other anyway.  And if not, we'd be about a 30 second walk away.  So we'll have plenty of time to chill and hangout.  Now, about that distillery...

Also, I think I have a date on DC for you and Pipster.  If I wind up going to Foxfield, it makes a lot of sense to just combine the two trips into one.  I'd go hang out in DC Thursday day/night, and Friday day, drive the two hours to C'ville Friday night, after rush hour.

Hoping to get off the priority, non-resident waitlist. 

Only if you promise that you would come, regardless of what Columbia does.

Yesssssss.  I'm pretty sure I'd come.

I think Phase III is closest to the law school. The Ivy Garden lady I talked to today said that it is probably too late to get in there, but whatever.

Sweet!  Nice work Mantis.

Also, yeah, Phase III is closest to the LS/Darden, hence it fills up so fast.  My roommate (Dasadder) and I sent our stuff in last week, and the lady said we'd be fine.  Damn, must have filled up hella fast.  

Not getting Phase III isn't really the end of the world.  Probably an additional minute onto your walk, tops.  As for the relative quality of the units in the three phases, I have no idea.  For all I know Phase III is just closer, but is the worst of the three.  Ah well, can't touch the steaming pile of crap I lived in for two years of UG.

She told me the 2BRs with den are full, but the 2BRs without are still open. I'm down.

Also, I need a roommate. Also, I'm mad that I so quickly just submitted over 1000 dollars over the internet for a security deposit. Someone is reimbursing me 500 bucks, whether it's future roomie or Ivy.

Yeah, we just talked on the phone about this.

To recap for everyone else, I'm terrified out of my mind. I just submitted the Ivy app and deposited over $1000 through their online vendor thing. I keep trying to tell myself that I'll be getting half of this back from whoever decides to room with me, in addition to the fact that assuming I don't *&^% all over the walls I'll get it all back anyway. Still, I don't like that hanging over my head, so someone come decide to live with me and cut me a check for 450. Ok, thanks.

Hey, as long as you don't have to room with a JAM (Join the Abstinence Movement) kid, like the ones picketing my office right now, I think you'll be ok.  I had a 10 minute conversation with the youth pastor in charge of them over lunch.  He reminded me a lot of myself.  That is, of myself had I grown up to be a huge, hulking mass of socially awkward, self righteous feminine hygiene product.  Anyway, after 10 minutes explaining his group to me, he made a fatal mistake.  Apparently they define abstinence as referring solely to procreative sex.  So next came the inevitable question: "Dude, so you're telling me...  anal is in bounds?"  I think he said something after that, I didn't hear him.  I was too busy propositioning the female marchers about a little abstinence-ok frolic in the janitor's closet.  (By the way, SO, if you're reading this, keep in mind that this was all in jest!).  About five minutes later, they packed up and left.  Aw, come on.  Was it something I said?

So in conclusion, you have nothing to fear. ;)

Pipster posts every now and then... but she's not the post-whore that I am. Michigan's got its fair share of 1000+ posters; we seem to be lacking. Stupid fellow classmates, and their "actual lives outside of LSD".

The Ivy Gardens lady told me that the 1 and 2BRs with dens in Phase III are all bye-bye. There are still Phase III apartments available; it's just that the ones with a den are gone. But really, isn't den just a fancy way of saying "extra storage facility"? Who needs a den? Seriously, what would you there?

I first played on a set my parents got me when I was 5.  But it would be disingenous to say that I've been playing for the past 18 years.  I played off and on up through highschool.  Didn't play at all in UG until about a year ago.  So I'm hella rusty, but I plan to spend a lot of time working on it this summer (when I finally won't be in an apartment).  I was in two bands during HS, but I played bass and sang, rather than drummed.  Never did HS band.  I'm not saying I wasn't interested, but it was during football/soccer season, and as I was playing both for most of HS, didn't really have the time ;)

In the interest of keeping this post going, as well as Johnny's wellness of mind, I decided I'd go steal the idea they had over at the Columbia '10 thread, and modify it a bit.  Yay internet piracy.  Anyway, feel free to nominate any UVA LSDer (list is at the bottom of this post) for any of the following categories.  Sometime when I feel like it, I'll total up everything and let you know :P  And feel free to add any new categories you can think of!

"The First person to ________ will be...?"

-ask a gunnerish question

-ask a classmate what their LSAT score is

-hook up with a classmate...only to have the whole school know about it the next day

-get lost at the Corner and wind up getting jumped by C'ville's only gang

-forget the combination to their locker lock

-come into class in business attire

-...ditch any semblence of attire and come into class in pajamas

-come into class in last nights clothes

-get "let us never speak of this again..." wasted

-organize a student protest

-get in a bar fight

-tell stories about their time in college at the drop of a hat

-get drunk at a firm recruiting event

-get drunk and take off their pants at a firm recruiting event

-get retardedly drunk and run around a firm recruiting event, pants off, chasing someone yelling "Woooman!  Woooman!"  (Or man, as the preference may be.)

-get caught posting on xoxo during class

-get caught playing Halo during class

-stop attending classes

-start a "UVA 1L taking questions" thread on LSD?

-Walk into the wrong classroom and sit down

-Take the elevator up 1 floor

-Lose or break their laptop

-Ask the prof to repeat themself so you can type it into your notes

It's true.  I'm having a UVA morning.  And the more I think about how much it's going to cost to live in Chicago and how cold it's going to be all. the. time.  I lean toward UVA.

And I nominate Johnny for the "First one to start a UVA 1L taking questions thread."  Or maybe "ITT I tell you to go to UVA."  :)

I just took the elevator up one flight of stairs. 

Because our administrative office is up one floor and I just got sent a bouquet of flowers for my birthday  :P

You're welcome.

I take the elevator one floor every day, but that's because the stairwell door is locked from the other side.

Well, we have 31 floors, and there is an internal stairwell.  So my general rule of thumb is, if I have something in my hand that I can afford to lose, it gets, uh, "lightly tossed" at the person as they exit.  Elevators are serious business.

I'm not sure.  I know he's a super athlete though, so I don't think it'd be that hard to teach him a forehand and then stand back and watch him pwn.

Seriously, we should get an IM team and obliterate the competition. I played 6 or 7 different IM sports in my college career and never won a shirt. We're talking 20-something teams total, and nothing to show for it.

I will probably be both of these things.  I'm a huge klutz and I spill stuff all the time, so it wouldn't surprise me.  And even though I'm an old fart, last month I got carded...


...going into a rated R movie.   :P

Anyway.  I'd like to add an option for "The first people to approach random strangers to recruit them for Ultimate" and of course, those people will be Alpha and Johnny.

I just looked at your LSN.

First of all, it's entirely possible that you'll get into HLS and this whole thing will be moot.

Second of all, UVA gave you money and NU gave you nothing? You should really stop thinking about this one.

Third of all: according to weather.com, both Chicago and Charlotteville are cloudy today. In Chicago it feels like 40. In Cville, it feels like 57.

Title: Re: University of Virginia Class of 2010
Post by: mantis on April 18, 2007, 02:11:33 PM
You looked at my LSN.. which has no numbers.  My split is pretty ridiculous.  Trust me when I say I'm not getting into Harvard.

Anyway, the weather thing is definitely a huge factor.  I'm not one of those Seasonal Affected Disorder people or whatever... but I do want to be able to go outside at least some of the time while I'm in school.

And I do really love that part of Virginia.  It's close to where I went to school so I'm familiar with the Blue Ridge mountains and all that jazz.  So yeah.  UVA is looking pretty good.  Northwestern would basically have to come back with an enormous scholarship.  And that seems equally unlikely as me getting into Harvard.  So hey.  :)

nah I don't play ultimate but I have played.  I actually had a great time too.  I can run and catch a frisbee with ease, but my throwing is a bit more inconsistent.  If you guys tought me some technique I think I'd fit right in :) 

About the regular posters, I keep up with this thread but don't post much.  I'll try to start contributing more in an effort to stay ahead of Penn.  And Mantis, you are coming to UVa!

Post by: dasadder on April 19, 2007, 06:24:05 AM
I think a majority of those on this board are living in Ivy.  I was unsure if I was going to live there but ultimately I decided walking to class + half of the class living around you = a fantastic 1L year.  The price is also pretty decent (even though I think we are over paying a bit for convenience).

On another note, Mark Buehrle pitched a no-hitter last night.  Simply amazing.  And he is on my fantasy team.  Any of you baseball fans?

Yeah, I'm currently 4th in the LSD league (yes, we have a league). I'm an Orioles fan, though, so my love of baseball has gone down over the years.

Also, yes. Ivy. Live there.

Edit: Also, the 1L IM Ultimate team is going to be absolutely unstoppable.

I'm a Twins fan.  Probably the only sports team of which I can consider myself a real fan.  I'll jump on the bandwagon for other MN sports, but the Twins are it for me.

I'm currently in first place and widening the gap as we speak.  However, my brother picked my team so I can't take much of the credit.

Well, last time I went to Vegas, I'll run you through a typical day.  We were at the Bellagio, because of a friend of mine gets everything comped.  So Bellagio, nice.  25 or 50 dollar tables?  Ouch.

Anyway, this was our third day, and I was more or less even.  We went to the Bellagio buffet and I ate about a pound of Kobe beef.  Then I went to the craps tables, and by 9 PM I was out almost 700.  So I went to the hotel shop, bought 7 cigars.  Sat down at 25 dollar Blackjack.  Each time they put a new cocktail waitress on the table I forked over a big tip so she'd keep on bringing my drinks every 20 minutes or so.  Nothing but screw drivers, because you gotta keep your Vitamin C up.  So at about noon the next day, my friends come to check on me.  I haven't left the table.  When they all go up to bed around 3 AM that night, I'm still there.  To be frank, I lost track of time.  The best estimate I have is 5 PM, when one of them came back to the room and found me, still in my suit from two days ago, passed out in the bathtub with my money.  I made back my losses, plus 300. :P

So yeah, let's just say I become acutely aware of my mortality every time I go to Vegas.

I'm backpacking around Europe for 25 days with my two brothers and a friend.  I have never been to Europe before, so I am really looking forward to it.  Where in South America?

Man, I wish I had the balls to throw down that type of money.  I am still scarred from my trip to Vegas last year.

It's got nothing to do with cajones.  I really only remember splotches of that whole run.  You just sort of slip into the zone.  I didn't eat for two straight days.  Nothing except orange juice, vodka, and cigars.  We'll have to take a UVA Law trip to Vegas sometime.  If I make it back from this one. ;)

Sounds good. I could easily spend 2 or 3 days straight at a 2/4 hold em table. When I went to Vegas last year, I lost about 2 or 300 hundred on slots, blackjack, roulette... I should have stuck to the stupid 2/4 table: I was making 13 bucks an hour.

Plus drinks, yeah, that's not bad.  Blackjack is actually a hell of a game, especially once you learn to count a little.  Although you have to be careful which counting method you learn, if it's something noticeable they will chuck you from your chair fast.  But a good counter at Blackjack (which sadly I am not) can pretty much erase the house advantage and make it an even game.  Plus, next to craps I think it's the most social game, which I like.  I love poker, it's just every time I sit at a table in Vegas it's usually a bunch of fatass Chris Moneymaker wannabes.  They all do well on PartyPoker and forget to realize that the game's different when people can see your facial expressions.  I usually win, but there are more enjoyable ways for me to gamble ;)

When I play poker, it isn't gambling. Gambling indicates there's a chance I could lose money.

I've recently become a big fan of Caribbean Stud, mostly because I made 150 bucks off of it. I don't like Blackjack for the same reason that I do like CS: in blackjack, you're always going to make 1 to 1 (well, 3 to 2 if you get a blackjack, but you get the point). In CS, if you get lucky, you can make a large amount of money off of 1 hand. You have to be consistent to make anything in blackjack; in CS, you can just get lucky.

Still working on that.  Just declared June 1 my last day at work, so I'm going to use/abuse the points/miles I've accumulated as a traveling vacuum cleaner salesman to get wherever I can on the cheap.  Definitely looking at Galapagos, Bolivian salt flats, Caracas if they let me in, ditto for Colombia and hopefully parts of Peru.  Generally anywhere I won't get shot - but the itinerary will prove a case study in ADD I'm sure.

So where to in Europe?

I'm not sure if there is a difference between how old they are.  It seems reasonable to think so, and if that is the case  I am sure phase 3 is the newest (how's my logic here?).  I do know that phase 3 is the closest to the school while phase 1 is the farthest from the school.  However, I doubt the difference in distance is anything to disuade students from living in phase 1 of Ivy if that is the only place available.

South America will be a great experience.  My parents are from Colombia, so that is the only country I have visited in S. America, but definitely try to go.  It is a beautiful country.

As for Europe, we are trying to hit a lot.  It's only 25 days, so this list may have to be cut down a bit, but for now it includes Paris, Barcelona, Nice, the Swiss Alps, Rome, Florence, Venice, Munich, Prague, Berlin, Amsterdam, and Brussels.  That's 12 places.  I think 10 would be ideal.  Any suggestions about which destinations to cut out of the trip (or if I should add any for that matter)?

I'll just comment on what I know from a couple months of scrubby backpacking out there:
Paris: know French.  The cops will be on rollerblades. 
Nice: Real nice.  Expensive though.  I kind of felt like once I hit one spot on the Riviera you've hit them all.
Rome: historical overload.  I spent about 4 days there and felt like I had barely chipped away at it.  Tons to see and if you just hit the obligatory tourist spots you might feel like you're getting all hole, no donut.  If you go, try to hit the catacombs.
Venice: overrated.  I did a day trip and was ready to get the hell out of there when it was time to go.  The streets are impossibly difficult to navigate, a gondola ride costs like 80 bucks, and it's (or was a couple years back) the most expensive city in italy. 
Barcelona: awesome.  A little gross in terms of cleanliness but awesome.  I'm a big fan but probably b/c i'm partial to Spain.  Wouldn't be a bad jump off spot to France.

Since you're going during summer, you might want to consider Sanfermines (part of which is  the Pamplona hoopla in mid-july but also carries over into other French cities in Basque country).

I also hear Interlaken in Switzerland is amazing.  Lots of touristy outdoorsy adventure stuff (not Disneyland touristy but wait-till-you-see-the-pictures-of-what-i-did touristy).

Also Cinque Terre in Italy is a great lazy hippie town (or series of towns).  Although you might forget you were trying to go anywhere else...

I don't think I helped you pare down your list at all, really.  Actually I probably made it worse.  But hey, I just burned off some more time on the work clock :).

Not really.  I was looking at the Greek alphabet when I registered, and I play drums...  so no, I probably won't be able to help you :P

Alpha, you do know UVA has a law school band, right?  They audition 1Ls in the spring for their 2L year.  It's called something like Boscom's Folly.  They played at the second ASW, and were good.

Yet another thing that turned me to UVA.

No that's great to here from your expereince there.  About Venice, at most we will do a day trip.  My girlfriend also had a subpar experience there.  It may be cut from the list.  Cinque Terre was on my list a bit ago, but with Nice I feel like I may be getting a similar coastal experience.  I also have a friend (well a friend of a friend) in Nice so that is why I chose it over Cinque Terre.  Would you recommend Nice and Cinque Terre when time is an issue?  Interlaken is probably where we will go in Switzerland.  Man, I am pumped for this trip.

For me, Cinque Terre trumps Nice.  One of the best times I had was there, but mostly because of the people I met there and the nature thing that they do well.  I definitely remember what Nice *looked* like - very clean, attractive people everywhere, and pebble beaches.  But the experience was a little flat.  Since you know someone there, though, well who knows, maybe you'll find yourself with Moet in hand on the yacht I could only gawk at.

That is a LOT to see in only 25 days.  Don't underestimate the distances you're going to have to travel.  Look into intercity flights - RyanAir and EZJet offer low cost alternatives to Eurail, in terms of both time and money.  I would go to Cinque Terre over Nice.  All of the places you listed are great (although I personally have not been to Berlin, I've heard good things), but if you had to cut any from the list, I would suggest Nice, Brussels, and Munich (you're going to be too early for Oktoberfest anyway).
Title: Re: University of Virginia Class of 2010
Post by: dasadder on April 19, 2007, 03:08:45 PM
Yeah that is a lot.  I think 10 cities will be a good number.  I want to see a lot and keep a good pace, but I don't want to feel like we are rushing the trip.  We are not going with a rigid itinerary, so if we feel like we need another day in Interlaken or we could leave Munich a day early, so be it.
Title: Re: University of Virginia Class of 2010
Post by: CTR on April 19, 2007, 03:24:57 PM
10 cities in 25 days means 2.5 days per city (yes, I know, my math skills are quite impressive), not including travel.  Including travel time pares it down to more like 1.5-2 days per city, and I guarantee you'll need more than 2 days for Paris and Rome. 

It's definitely doable (using a combination of flights and sleeper trains, which cost $$ on top of your eurail pass and require advance reservations), but you might be better served spending more time in fewer places.

Just an observation.

In high school it was cool to love him; in college it was cool to hate him. After my first couple years of college, though, I realized that it's foolish of me to say "I love him" or "I hate him"; I take him and everyone else on a song by song basis.

I'm also incredibly interested in what section I'll be in. Does anyone know from current students if the different sections give themselves names?

Regardless, we're doing it.

I don't think we find out section assignments until a week before classes :(

A lot of  buildings let you choose an apartment then put down the deposit.  Now I am waiting on a system and each day that goes by means a day I might have used to find an apartment I like elsewhere.

Aren't you younger than 50? Why would you live anywhere but Ivy?

I'm only being partially facetious; I'm fully expecting Ivy to be a 9 month fun-fest.

I have loved DMB since 8th grade, when I bought their Crash album thinking it contained a Sister Hazel song I was looking for (at the time I didn't know it was Sister Hazel so I sang the lyrics to a guy at Target and he directed me Crash). 

With their new stuff, I never love the albums initially.  However, they always grow on me and I end up really liking them.  I can see how you may not like the new stuff though.

I too have heard of Dave encounters in C'ville.  It would be cool to run into him.

Haha, well my friends did literally run into him.

and I agree dasadder, at first I didnt like Everyday or Stand up, but now some of those songs are among my favorites -- Angel, So Right, Steady as We Go, Hunger for the Great Light

So who out there is looking for a roommate in Ivy?  Check "Yes" if you are, "No" if you aren't, and pass the note back across the room.  "Maybe So" also acceptable but discouraged.

If I fork over a deposit for a 2BR (assuming some are still available) think it's pretty much guaranteed I can find someone to join (assuming I'm not the creepy, lurking type)?

Yeah, I am pretty psyched about Dave.  Generally I really don't like that genre of music, for instance, OAR is from OSU, where I went to school.  Doesn't matter, still can't stand them :P  I'm more of a hard rock, metal guy.  Actually listening to a Finnish metal band called Lordi right now.  I know, I'm strange.  But there's just something I really like about DMB's music.  Two Step is probably my favorite song, or Stay, I'm not sure.  But he's really fun to listen to, and they're all hella talented musicians, so what's not to like?

Two-Step is the kind of song that, in 10 years, should absolutely be on every classic rock station in America.

I resent dropping $1000 in total and still not having my name on a lease.

I wouldn't worry too much about it. You're going to get it back anyway. Unless you put a giant hole in the wall.

Also, if you don't like the room they put you up in, it's refundable.

Except for the mandatory $85 carpet cleaning fee. Grr.

Just an FYI about lease dates, the person I spoke to at Ivy said it's easier to get a place if you're flexible with the month (i.e, July instead of August).

I hope to move August 1st, and if i get a july 15th lease I'll just pay the half month and move in on the 1st as planned or shift my stuff down there on the weekends leading up.

South America will be a great experience.  My parents are from Colombia, so that is the only country I have visited in S. America, but definitely try to go.  It is a beautiful country.

As for Europe, we are trying to hit a lot.  It's only 25 days, so this list may have to be cut down a bit, but for now it includes Paris, Barcelona, Nice, the Swiss Alps, Rome, Florence, Venice, Munich, Prague, Berlin, Amsterdam, and Brussels.  That's 12 places.  I think 10 would be ideal.  Any suggestions about which destinations to cut out of the trip (or if I should add any for that matter)?

As a Belgian i can say,don't do Brussels,but take Antwerp,Gent or Bruges instead,these are far more beautiful cities

I believe so.  Looking on the floor plan, it didn't look that much bigger, but I'm sure I'll have a different opinion once I see it.  I remember someone mentioned doing about 50 bucks or so difference a month.  I dunno, dasadder (my roommate) and I haven't even figured out who gets which room yet.  I'm thinking a friendly game of Rochambeau is the best way to deal with that one.

There is no fairer way to decide something.

Alpha, have you decided what you are doing this weekend?  If there are more UVA 0Ls going to Foxfield, we should meet up (if I end up going).

I don't know.  I am on the fence.  The guys I know down there say I'm welcome to stay with them, but I get the distinct sense they'd rather I not, as it's finals during their 1L year.  So right now I'm looking at a hotel, which jacks up the price.  And I wanted to stop by in DC for a day or two before UVA, and I was hoping to visit Johnny and Pipster, but it looks like Johnny at least won't be around.  So pretty much, I dunno if it's worth going this weekend, or if perhaps maybe I should go next weekend?  Part of it also depends on what you're doing, because we need to chill.  So as you can see, there's a lot of *&^% going into this decision.  I'd rather just go down the next two weekends in a row, but, ah well :P

Also, sorry for not giving you a call.  My drunken a-hole day turned into a drunken a-hole long weekend, but hopefully tonight we can sort all this out.

Yeah, count on either this Friday or the next.  I meant to have all this sorted out, all my plans and lodging taken care of, last Thursday.  But then the weekend hit, and I woke up at about 6 AM this morning with a massive headache, and my first thought literally was: "@#!*, I have no idea what I'm doing this weekend."  So I will let you know for sure.

Sorry, I'm not going to be able to move in till the beginning of August. But good luck; I'm sure someone out there will be moving in in June. I'm surprised Ivy management hasn't been helping you with this; they would probably know exactly who's moving in when.

I did the same thing to Penn last year. You gotta look out for number one.

Also, the bigger bedroom in Ivy has an appreciably larger amount of space. I pay more than my roommate for it (we live in Phase I and split it 420-380)

As a great aficionado of Trader Joe's and their economical wine offerings, I am sad to say that in Virginia, it's more like 4-buck Chuck due to liquor taxes or something. It's 3 bucks in DC, where booze is cheaper.

Johnny, how do you not know about Chuck? It's the Trader Joe's house brand of wine, officially called Charles Shaw. There a few different varietals and most of them are very drinkable, for a wine that cheap. I'm spoiled in the wine department - when I lived in France, I actually refused to spend more than 5 euro on wine. It's just so cheap over yonder.

I've actually never been to Trader Joe's; from what I understand, food there is not cheap, and cheap food = good food. It's surprising that they don't have a TJ in Charlottesville, though.

Can't go wrong with Geagle.  Cheapest place to buy veggies I've ever seen, but I'm not sure if it's out there or not.  My best guess at to the lack of a TJ's in C'ville is because of that Foods of the World place (or whatever it is called).  I think it's fairly well known, and sells a similar product.  Hopefully they have some sort of cheap, good wine too.

And yeah, TJ's type of food is expensive, not always if you hit the sales right, but sometimes it is extremely worth it.  Pesto hummus...  so delicious.

I think TJ is pretty cheap actually. Much cheaper than Whole Foods. It depends what you're buying, I guess. It's right by your office, that's why I mention it. I think it's mostly a city thing.

I'm happy there's a Whole Foods nearby, even though it's expensive and I will be poor. Just for some things.

Hey future classmates,

Do a lot of you already have your housing arrangements set up?  I live in C'ville, and I'm moving out of where I currently live.  However, I have procrastinated on the whole housing process, but I will probably be looking for a roommate.  I checked out the UVA financial aid budget and according to that we are only supposed to be able to afford about $600 a month for rent.  I can't think of too many decent places in C'ville where you can live alone for $600/ month.  So, if anyone on here is looking for a roommate feel free to send me a message. Oh, if you can't tell by the name...I am a girl. I'm also 23, born in the Caribbean, grew up in NYC, went to UVA undergrad Class of 2005, I'm studious, but I know how to have a good time  ;).

However, my friend who is a 2L lives in a spot called Turtle Creek (or Cove)--has a 2 bed 2 bath for $825 a month that she splits with a roomy.  She didn't like Ivy bc she said ppl are too nosey.  So that could be an option.

Do a lot of you already have your housing arrangements set up?  I live in C'ville, and I'm moving out of where I currently live.  However, I have procrastinated on the whole housing process, but I will probably be looking for a roommate.  I checked out the UVA financial aid budget and according to that we are only supposed to be able to afford about $600 a month for rent.  I can't think of too many decent places in C'ville where you can live alone for $600/ month. So, if anyone on here is looking for a roommate feel free to send me a message. Oh, if you can't tell by the name...I am a girl. I'm also 23, born in the Caribbean, grew up in NYC, went to UVA undergrad Class of 2005, I'm studious, but I know how to have a good time  ;).


Actually, didn't they increase the budget to allow students to live alone?  I think singels in IVy were 700+. 

However, my friend who is a 2L lives in a spot called Turtle Creek (or Cove)--has a 2 bed 2 bath for $825 a month that she splits with a roomy.  She didn't like Ivy bc she said ppl are too nosey.  So that could be an option.

They did increase it, but I decreased it about $90 bucks in my estimate to account for utilities. Regardless, I am just looking for the cheapest way to spend the federal government's money, while I am in school.  Having lived in C'ville though, I have heard pretty unsavory things about Ivy. But hey, you got to do what you got to do.

What sort of places did you live in during UG?  I got to see a couple different Ivy apartments during ASW, and yeah, they were not anything super impressive.  However, compared to the shitholes I lived in during UG, I'll take it :P

Well, I lived in student housing during undergrad, so I was never impressed. But I know that there are a lot of great places further out in Charlottesville, that are nicer, and reasonably priced when split between 2.  I am not really concerned with living close to the law school, because I figure I'll just drive there and stay all freaking day...then go home and relax.  Have you guys used the Blue Ridge Apartment Council website to search. It is www.brac.com, and is one of the primary ways students find housing.  Anyway, regarding Ivy...my 4th year at UVA I lived behind Ivy, and even went to law school parties there....basically the apartments are OK, but the management is shady, and the laundry facilities suck. Also, you will never get away from the law school environment living there.

Actually, now that I think about it, it's probably Ukrop's.

Ever put in a maintenance request to your landlord?  Ever had him not respond 4 times?  Ever go to his office to find he'd just been indicted for tax fraud and couldn't be found?  That's the CBus Campus housing market for you.

What I mean is that if you want to escape, mentally, or physically, it is more difficult to do that if you live at Ivy.  I am all for meeting people and creating great relationships, I am just the type who also needs her space sometimes.  Oh, and regarding parking....it is not that big of a deal.  Do you remember the lot that we had to park in during ASW, that place is practically always empty if the main law school lot is full. So, that is like a 5 minute walk, not even 5.

Have you tried talking to UVA law financial aid about negotiating your financial aid package? Maybe you can get them to give you a couple thousand dollars.  It's worth a try.

I think that we will have to buy UVA Health Insurance as part of our financial aid if we don't have outside coverage.  Which is not bad, since UVA Hospital is, supposedly, a top 100.  This link to the budget also accounts for that. http://www.law.virginia.edu/lawweb/lawweb2.nsf/pages/Financial+Aid#budgets

According to the law school's computing page they deal with additional requests for computers as follows:
"For more information on the “Law Bundles”, please call Cavalier Computers directly at (434) 924-3475, send electronic mail to [email protected] or take a look at their Law School Bundles.

The Law School's financial aid office will increase a student's budget up to $2,500 toward the cost of any notebook computer purchased on or after May 1, 2006 upon request from the student and submission of supporting documentation (i.e., sales receipt or PC vendor's price quote) to the financial aid office. This increase is available only to J.D. candidates."

It looks like insurance starts August 15 since our program doesn't start until the 20th. But you might be able to work something out with them or with your old office via COBRA for the time in between. I was wondering about that too actually. I'm going on vacation, would be nice to live dangerously with impunity.

Is COBRA more expensive than regular work insurance? If so, vomit. I might just get back on my dad's USAA health care for the summer. Whatever. I'm never going to die, so it's cool.

Yeah it is, the deal with COBRA is that they have to keep you on the insurance plan for a given amount of time after you leave the job, but you have to pay the entire premium, including the part that your company pays (or used to pay, while you were still working there). So usually it's a lot more expensive. If you can get on USAA then I would do it, but a lot of insurance plans kick you off when you graduate college or reach a certain age. Like for me, the age limit on my parents policy was 22, so I got kicked off as soon as I graduated. But I think the age varies depending on the insurance company.

Eh, I sparred a 5'5 Korean black belt once.  He actually was knocking the stuffing out of me, until I managed to catch his leg.  Then I threw him down and it was over.  But I think if a TKDer can keep you at striking, with decent leg strength you could be in trouble in a hurry.

So, I don't know if you really do yoga, or if you were just kidding, but there is this place in C'ville where you can do Hot Yoga / Bikram Yoga.  It is amazing. If you don't know what it is, you are basically in a sauna with your yoga mat, and lots of water.  It is great at removing your body's toxins, and you leave feeling like Stretch Armstrong.

I've got to say, I'm actually pretty disappointed with the yoga options in C-ville. Bikram just isn't my thing, and the other studios aren't really my speed. I've gotten really into Baptiste/power vinyasa yoga, which is in a heated room but different from Bikram, but there's not really anything like that in C-ville.

And yes, I knit. :-)

Well, you sound pretty yoga literate and advanced, so I can understand how C'ville might be lacking, but I am a mere novice...so I take what I can get.

Isn't there like a new wave of young people knitters across the country? I feel like knitting is having a revival of sorts.  I can barely knit, but I crochet, and made an afghan this winter.  It was a good stress reliever, and more productive than obsessively checking my e-mail for law school application updates.  :D

No, no, true story.  Martial arts seem impressive when you watch it, but in terms of an actual fight, the only people I'd ever worry about would be a boxer or a wrestler.  And since I box, I kinda have that down.  But I am terrified of wrestlers.  I've sparred a few times with a friend of mine who was state level...  my tactic every time was just to unload every big punch I had on him in about the first 10 seconds, hoping to just knock him flat.  It worked once.  The other two times he stayed up, was able to get me down into a hold, and it was all over.  I was trying to get an arm free to punch him in the head, never happened.  So I repeat.  Terrified of wrestlers. :P

Also, yoga huh?  I've always wanted to do that.  Granted me doing yoga will probably look ridiculous, but it's something I have always wanted to try.

Well, you sound pretty yoga literate and advanced, so I can understand how C'ville might be lacking, but I am a mere novice...so I take what I can get.

Isn't there like a new wave of young people knitters across the country? I feel like knitting is having a revival of sorts.  I can barely knit, but I crochet, and made an afghan this winter.  It was a good stress reliever, and more productive than obsessively checking my e-mail for law school application updates.  :D

A lot of people really like Bikram...maybe I haven't given it enough of a change, but it made me feel like crap, so I gave up on it :-) It does seem like there are a lot of young knitters around. It's kind of a nice calming activity.

This thread is getting kind of girly, but I do have guy friends who knit and do yoga! Clearly secure with their manhood.

Alphadrummer, if you're in DC, I actually work at a yoga studio here - it's good stuff.

Also, are wrestlers really useful in a street fight? Like, once they get you in a hold, can they do anything, like break a bone? Or do they mostly just make you exhausted so that when they let go you have to spend the next 3 days catching your breath?

I've never been in a fight before, and this makes me sad. I have a feeling if I was ever in an actual fight, not only would I win, but the guy would end up in the hospital.

Dasadder would be able to explain it a lot better than I could, as I never wrestled, though I wish I did.  But if not break a bone, then I am damn certain they could put you in a choke and knock you unconscious, as that's what my buddy was doing to me when I tapped out.  The thing with wrestling is that it's all about the hold, so even if they are smaller or something, they have a good chance of wrapping you up.  If you could keep them at range, you could probably obliterate them.  But other than knocking them out in the first few moments, I am not sure what you do.

And I've been in a few fights, and I bounced for awhile.  I'm by no means an expert, nor do I particularly enjoy it.  But if someone comes at me, I know what I'm doing :P

That's the problem I have: I'd probably be much more useful in an actual fight thatn a sparring/MMA match. I'd probably kill or immobolize someone. You can't take me anywhere, man.

Not all yoga is created equal, you kind of have to try different things until you find what you like. Different styles have different target audiences (hard-bodied fine young things, old people with back problems, etc.) and different levels of "Westernization," for lack of a better word, meaning like how much Sanskrit chanting and oiling yourself with castor oil is involved, or not involved. I'm in it for the exercise so I tend to ignore the spiritual stuff, rightly or wrongly. It's a great workout if you pick the right studio.

Johnny, how did you avoid getting in a fight? One would think you would be dying to practice your skillz.

It was by the grace of my concern for my fellow man. I wouldn't wish my worst enemy into a fight with me.

I'll laugh when I actually do get in a fight and get destroyed. I always picture me shattering an elbow or knocking someone unconscious with an open palm strike to the temple. In reality I'd probably get punched in the face and fall to the ground in the fetal position.

There are a couple of places in C-ville I'm going to try out, and maybe by some miracle the gym yoga at the UVA gym won't totally suck (gym yoga is usually super crappy), but I think I'll probably end up practicing by myself at home or somewhere. I'm really, really going to miss my DC yoga studio. After a good yoga session, you feel like you have runner's high.

The castor oil thing is supposed to clean the toxins out of your skin. Not my thing. Yoga people are weirdos.

Johnny, can we have a demonstration of you, like, breaking blocks of wood with your forehead?

Yes, I really do yoga.. And I am also not into the Bikram style.  There's a great Bikram studio where I used to live and I went there for a few sessions but I just prefer a more flowing style.  After a minute of standing in a single pose I start to get bored... which probably isn't a great testament to my yoga-ness, if the idea is to quiet the mind and be meditative, but hey.

It looks like there might be a few places to go in C-ville... but I base that only on a quick google search.

Wow you've already looked into yoga studios? I'm impressed! But also sad to hear the options don't sound too great. I've done yoga through my school gym the past couple years, but only because the teacher that comes in is incredible. I doubt I'll be that lucky twice.

Speaking of the UVa gym in general, did anyone get a chance to check it out while they were in C-ville? How far is it from the law school? Is it decent?

I agree about the more flowing style thing. I didn't like how Bikram is always the same 26 poses every time. Rightly or wrongly, I get bored!

I think besides the Bikram studio, there's an Ashtanga shala. They offer some vinyasa classes, but I'm not too hopeful about that. Not that I'll have any money for my expensive yoga habit anyway...

Not gonna lie, one of my main points of hesitation about living in Ivy is the carpeted floors not being good for a home yoga practice. I prefer a hard surface. (It also annoys me how Bikram studios are always carpeted...ew) This is clearly ridiculous. I can't help myself.

But yeah, I wonder if we could set something up that might be better than whatever the UVA gym offers. The main thing I need is a heated room. I'm convinced that yoga is not meant to exist at room temperature.

FYI: Even though I am old and curmudgeonly, I am on facebook and I just friended you.  Don't reject me.  :(

Of course not: there's like 90 people on the group and I'm friends with about 80 of them. The others are still pending. One rejected me, but that's her style, since we haven't met. She did grant me access to her profile, though.

Also, work blocked facebook this week. I'll get back to you this afternoon probably.

I can't believe someone rejected you.  I haven't even rejected the people I don't like... they're just sitting in my "pending requests" area.  Forever and ever.  :)

She claims it's her policy; she has to actually know you before she'll be friends with you. But she granted me access to her profile. Whatever.

Wow you've already looked into yoga studios? I'm impressed! But also sad to hear the options don't sound too great. I've done yoga through my school gym the past couple years, but only because the teacher that comes in is incredible. I doubt I'll be that lucky twice.

Speaking of the UVa gym in general, did anyone get a chance to check it out while they were in C-ville? How far is it from the law school? Is it decent?

UVA's athletic facilities are pretty good. I don't know what undergrad you came from, but at UVA people are pretty obsessed with being in shape and looking good. You will see people getting their jog on even when there is snow on the ground. So, there are a good number of athletic facilities around. The nearest one to the law school,North Grounds, however, is not the cream of the crop.  But it is pretty good, for your basic needs.  The Aquatics & Fitness Center, which is in the center of UVA's main undergrad campus and across the street from the football stadium, is where you are going to want to go if you want many more indoor options, such as a swimming pool, sauna, hot tub, top of the line treadmills, elipticals, etc..., an indoor track, lots of free weights, and classrooms where the university offers various workout and dance classes throughout the school year.  Here's the link to the athletic facilities website, http://www.virginia.edu/ims/facilities/index.html

UVA's Aquatic & Fitness Center is about 1-2 miles from the law school, but is accessible via the university bus system.  It was awarded the National Intramural Recreational Sports Association Outstanding Sports Facility Award in 2005.

Back to the testosterone.  I have never been in a fight either.  I don't know how much actual damage I could do.  I know if the fight got to the ground I would be able to control a guy pretty easily (immobilize his arms/ legs type of thing).  And if I could control a guy, I'm sure I could sneak in a few good hits.  There are a few holds I know that would hurt, but in wrestling it is more about control than pain.  If the fight stayed at a distance, I would not win.  I can't throw a punch and am terrified of taking one.  I think the deadliest combination of a fighter would be a boxer/ wrester/ and some type of submission martial art.

Definetely all true.  I know some wrestlers that have put me in some pretty nasty holds that take forever to get out of.  It won't submit the person but it'll definetely burn out their energy if they dont know any technical escapes.

  Most people say that muay thai boxing and jiu jitsu is the deadliest combo.  Thai boxers are just plain nuts.  They practice kicking each others shins over and over again to build up calcium so it hurts less.  Getting kneed in the face doesn't sound fun either.  I'm the same way, can't throw a punch and I'm not a fan of taking one either.  I'd rather just tackle someone to the ground and hope I dont get my head taken off in the process.  Or I'd run away.  One or the other.

It seems like the general rule is that we have to accept loans by June.  Or at least that's what I've read RE: other schools.  I was going to call the financial aid office this week but I totally spaced.  In any case... I just got my package a few days ago so I feel like it would be totally unreasonable for them to expect us to find a lender and accept everything in such short time.  But who knows.  Maybe when I get back from my weekend trip I'll find that they've cancelled my scholarship and loans.   :P

Another off-topic from fighting comment.

FYI everyone, UVA just tied for third in placing the highest number of new profs being hired at the "top" schools. It tied with NYU and Columbia and was beat only by Harvard and Yale.  It came in second place for the percentile of those hired to those who applied.

Not too shabby...

They never gave a time frame, I think you can do them at any time.  I know for a fact you can take out dditional loans during the school year if the university approves it.  I figure they put it on us in order to get them done with enough time for everything to be processed so they get their money by the due date.  In terms of amount.. I think I'm going to take out enough to cover tuition (full price in state) and live very frugally with my savings and some minimal help from the parental.

We requested anything at the 825 price.  We actually asked for the sunken patio (I think), and didn't get it.  Read into this however you will.  I'm pretty sure from talking to other people though that the Phase IIIs get scooped up by the Darden kids pretty quick.

Good morning everyone!

Sorry I wasn't around; I was too busy remembering that the weekend should be used on awesome things, and not LSD. Come on, guys, get with it.

I got to see my first domestic violence incident this weekend.  It was awesome.  And before you say "Alpha, a man beating a women is not awesome", that's not what happened.  We're at my friend's apartment, which is in the bad, baaaad end of campus.  I decided to step outside to "get some air", and I see a woman striding across the courtyard.  She goes into an apartment.  A couple seconds later I hear a scream and some shouting.  Another woman, semi-naked, runs out the door screaming holding her clothes, and takes off towards the parking lot.  A guy in a robe comes running out about three seconds later, in her direction, a look of pure terror in his eyes.  The woman I saw initially enter the apartment then comes out, screaming, holding a giant meat cleaver.  Now the thing is, there's a fence between the parking lot and the courtyard, you have to go outside and around to get to the lot.  But these folks weren't really thinking about it too hard.  So the semi-naked woman tries to scale the fence, but she's a little large, and she can't.  So she takes off in the other direction, and the man goes in the other.  For the next five minutes then, you've got an interesting game of tag involving two semi-nude people and an angry woman with a meat cleaver.  Finally the cops came and sorted everything out.  And I almost fell off the balcony I was laughing so hard.  Best night ever.

His foot, from what I hear, should be fine.  You'll have a fine wide receiver, now you just need someone to get the ball to him.

I'll admit, at first I bought into the hype and was pissed. Then I started rationalizing it; Brady Quinn is absolutely not a full round/20 million dollars better than Beck. No f-ing way. I would have rather traded down and still picked up Ginn, but I'm guessing that they tried and found no takers (they used up the full 15 minutes pretty much). I'm actually pretty happy with the Dolphins draft overall: they picked up lots of speed, a few huge bodies for the O-line (and FB, that Hawaiian kid is f-ing huge), potentially our next QB... I wish we had gotten a little younger than D, but oh well.

Yeah, I'm pretty content with the Bengals draft too, other than I think taking Kenny Irons in Round 2 was a ridiculous waste of that pick.  But our secondary is atrocious, and we picked up Leon Hall and two safeties.  Things have been so much better ever since the Brown family stopped making personnel decisions and let Marvin Lewis handle it.  No more f-ing Ki-jana Carters.

Seriously, you have Carson Palmer now, and since Carter you've had Dillon and Rudi. You don't have any room to complain.

In fact, right now, the Dolphins and Bengals are in some kind of sine/cosine relationship. As you are starting to peak, we are starting to plummit... or actually, we plummeted first, and are now starting to recover; I can't remember if sine/cosine is perfectly inverse or if it's staggered a bit. Anyway, you know what I'm saying.

Yeah, and guess when Palmer happened?  The first year Marvin Lewis got to make personnel decisions.  Dillon might have been the only positive personnel decision before then.  And Rudi was a fluke.  No one had any idea he'd be that good.  The Bengals were in fact trying to land another RB (there was some talking of Ricky Williams for *&^%'s sake!), but finally after the first few games they stuck with Rudi. 

Yes, now I have no room to complain.  But I don't think you had to suffer for about 14 years either. :P

5 years?  Try 14.  We had Shula.  Dave Shula.  We had one .500+ season before Marvin Lewis.  And it was a .500 season.  A much more typical year was oh, 4-12.  We also featured coaching greats such as male private part LeBeau and Bruce Coslet.  And then of course there was KJ and Smith.  I won't deny things are better now.  But you know nothing of the pain we Bengals fans had to endure.  Although, if the Dolphins keep this up, you may soon. ;)

Oh, and Bengals.

Yeah, Johnny's pretty much my "inter-web brother".  I don't know what that means, but ok.  Seriously, who else is going to talk me down from the ledge when the Bengals don't make the playoffs, again?

I'm only sad that we don't get to play the Cowboys this year.  Because I think that's one thing everyone can agree on:  @#!* the Cowboys.

I stand by my statement.  I've been there twice, and outside of the two aforementioned cities, never enjoyed myself once.  I realize that there are normal, well-adjusted folks in Texas.  But then you have these county-western loving, belt-buckles-as-big-as-their-heads right-wing assholes.  If it makes you feel better, you can go trash Ohio.  It's pretty pathetic, and I will happily endorse everything negative you have to say.

I guess I kind of see it as East Coast (well, from NC up anyway), West Coast, and a whole bunch of nothingness in between.

Well, I've only been to Cincy and Sandusky, so I can't say much other than Cedar Point rules. Texas really isn't that great, but there are at least 20 states worse, I think. And no, I'm not going to give you a list of shittier states. And every state has stupid people.

I've never been to the West Coast. Unless you count Vegas, which I don't think you should, considering Nevada touches no ocean whatsoever.

Perhaps now is a good time to trash Jersey and Philly (well, figuratively at least, since literally they've already been trashed for quite some time).

Eh, Vegas is practically the coast, though.  I don't know, that one is a toss up.  And true, every state has stupid people, but in Texas they're particularly obnoxious.  Didn't the state legislature just pass a law saying it's alright to shoot someone who you feel is threatening you in a road rage type situation? :P

But yeah, I'm a Cali guy.  I try to make a trip out to see friends of mine in Santa Cruz or Monterrey every year.  NorCal is absolutely the most beautiful place on earth.  And the weather, not too bad either ;)

I'd say there's a pretty damn good chance I'll either wind up there or in NY.  I need culture and a blue state.  Other than that, I'm pretty easy to please.

Dude, I was totally joking. Chesapeake sucks. But I can always take you to VA Beach/Norfolk, which isn't horrible, and then the Outer Banks. Maybe a bunch of us could/should get a beachhouse or something. Eventually.

If I was a Browns fan, I'd cry. Brady Quinn is not worth the 3rd overall pick, but he is worth the 36th pick plus next year's 1st round pick, which, let's face it Brown's fans, could be the 3rd overall pick? Ridiculous.

Eh, I know nothing about VA.  But I seriously did hear that there's a lot of good seafood around there.  Anyway, yeah, but the Browns are used to it.  For instance, the original franchise moves to Baltimore, and promptly wins a Super Bowl.  If I didn't have a seething hatred of Cleveland (I won't even back the Cavs, I'm a Pistons fan) I'd feel pity.  Instead, it's just really funny.

I suppose this is an excellent opportunity to tell a joke a girl from Ohio once told me. There was once an 8 year old boy who had very abusive parents, who just so happened to be divorced. Finally the child's teacher reported the abuse to the authorities and the child with both parents was taken to family court where the Judge decided to ask the boy what he wanted. He asked the boy if he still wanted to live with his Mother, and the boy said no -- I'm scared she's going to beat me again. He asked if he wanted to live with his father and he said no, his father too would beat him. Finally the judge said "well, who DO you want to live with?" The boy said the Cleveland Browns, because they can't beat anybody.

I actually think the Browns made a pretty killer move. They got a guy that *could* be a great QB AND the guy who's gonna save his ass from getting sacked for the next 10 years. It's a good move because there's no way they could've picked up Joe Thomas anywhere else in the draft. Once Miami blundered and took a 5'11" WR with a busted foot instead of the second best QB in the draft, why not go for the complete-team transformation in one year?

Really what the draft has done in recent years is inflate all of these mediocre college QBs to the point where fans think that if they're drafted in the first round they're guaranteed to be good. I'd posit that any college QB drafted in the first round still only has a 25% chance of being even moderately successful.

Plus who hates Brady Quinn? Everyone loves Notre Dame, plus any game he plays in has 15 minutes of guaranteed face time for his incredibly attractive sister. Win win!

I suppose this is an excellent opportunity to tell a joke a girl from Ohio once told me. There was once an 8 year old boy who had very abusive parents, who just so happened to be divorced. Finally the child's teacher reported the abuse to the authorities and the child with both parents was taken to family court where the Judge decided to ask the boy what he wanted. He asked the boy if he still wanted to live with his Mother, and the boy said no -- I'm scared she's going to beat me again. He asked if he wanted to live with his father and he said no, his father too would beat him. Finally the judge said "well, who DO you want to live with?" The boy said the Cleveland Browns, because they can't beat anybody.

I actually think the Browns made a pretty killer move. They got a guy that *could* be a great QB AND the guy who's gonna save his ass from getting sacked for the next 10 years. It's a good move because there's no way they could've picked up Joe Thomas anywhere else in the draft.

That joke just made my week.  I'd say a good 3/4 of my friends are Browns fans...  that gives me a good lead-off for most of my conversations over the next week or so.

As for Quinn, like you said, a lot of these 1st round QBs don't pan out.  I think Quinn will be one of them.  He had the benefit of a great line, and a good, if streaky, receiving corps.  When Samardzija was shut down and teams could put pressure on him, he more often than not folded.  But the amount of hype this guy gets is incredible.  The headline on SI the other day was "Is Brady Quinn the next Tom Brady?" I almost puked all over the screen, I was so disgusted.  Now granted, I don't like Tom Brady either, but that comparison is ludicrous.

I am not saying Brady Quinn will be horrible.  Joe Thomas, by the way, you're right, was an amazing pick.  But I do not think Quinn will ever be a standout, franchise type player a la Carson Palmer.  The Browns are just not that good a team.  They've got holes in a lot of areas.  Jeff Garcia, from his time in Philly and San Fran, is not a terrible QB.  But his year in Cleveland was awful.  I'd argue that had more to do with the personnel around him than his personal performance.  Brady Quinn is not going to be able to surpass that.  That second pick would have been much better suited to strengthening the O-line further, or getting some pass defense for once.  There will always be a big-name, hyped up QB to draft.  Better to wait a couple years to get the machinery in place.  Because, and here's the damndest thing about it.  Cleveland has done this whole thing before.  Tim Couch ring a bell?  Boy that one turned out great. :P

As for Tedd Ginn Jr., from what I know his foot is going to get healthy.  With his foot speed and awareness, he's going to make a hell of a WR.  Now granted, I am not 100% that was the right choice for the 'Fins, but if you're choosing between Quinn and Ginn?  I think that one's Ginn, no contest.  But I did go to OSU...

And one last thought.  Brady Quinn's sister?  You mean AJ Hawk's wife?  Now don't get me wrong, because I love AJ Hawk.  But she really isn't that attractive.  At all.  And that's before she opens her mouth.  And I met her a few times at Dublin Coffman parties.  Now Quinn's girlfriend, well, that's a whole different story.  Yeeeow.

I don't really care how good Quinn ends up; the fact of the matter is the Browns used a high 2nd round and what could very well amount to top 5/top 10 1st round pick on him. Basically, the Browns decided Quinn had the value of Beck/Edwards/Stanton... plus a first round pick. No freaking way.

Granted, next year's QB class is likely crap. Still, that's crazy.

Yeah, you're right.  But in two years you'll probably have Tim Tebow!

(Again, being facetious.  It's not that I don't think he'll be a good QB.  I think he'll be a horrible QB.  Like Michael Vick, only a worse passer   :o )

I'm only sad that we don't get to play the Cowboys this year.  Because I think that's one thing everyone can agree on:  @#!* the Cowboys.

HEY!  don't hate  :(

You're a Cowboy fan moving to Philly?!?!?! Well, it was nice knowing you.

No, seriously. They're either going to kill you, or simply run you out of town. It's not like "Oh, haha, we have a sports rivalry." No, they will seriously murder you.

I know...but I found a few other cowboys fans who are coming with me, so strength in numbers?  Actually, I'll just have to hide in my room during football season and never go outside on a sunday/monday night.

Hey, you weren't here to keep the testosterone in check, and what do you know, it might have gotten a little out of control.  You have no one to blame but yourself ;)

Eh, I suppose that's true.  And I was off having a mani-pedi and an exfoliating facial so I can't really complain.  :)

=X What else should we talk about? Since I've finally made the decision to go to UVA life has been pretty carefree and I have time to sit in front of the TV for 5-6 hours a day watching espn.

Good morning everyone  ;D

Since the fellas were talking about sports all yesterday, I figure I'd start today off with the official lyrics of UVA's Good Old Song.  If you end up attending a football game, you'll be singing this.

The Good Old Song
Words by Edward A. Craighill, 1895

That Good Old Song of Wahoowa,
We'll sing it o'er and o'er.
It cheers our heart and warms the blood
To hear them shout and roar.
We come from old Virginia,
Where all is bright and gay.
Let's all join hands and give a yell
For dear old UVa.

What though the tide of years may roll
And drift us far apart,
For Alma Mater still there'll be
A place in ev'ry heart.
In college days we'll sing her praise,
And so, when far away,
In memory we still shall be
At the dear old UVa.

(chant)
WAHOOWA, WAHOOWA
UNI-V, VIR-GIN-I-A
HOO-RAH-RAY, HOO-RAH-RAY
RAY! RAY! U-V-A!

My undergrad's school song is really just "Oh Canada" with different words. This will be a nice change!
