(((Venting)))


You will learn to hate undergrads when you're at UCLA.

 I chose Friday of all days to try and return my cap and gown. Friday was graduation day for the undergrads AND move out day. It was like a 20-ring circus. I have never seen something so ridiculous in my life. WHY, WHY, WHY would you schedule 30 different graduation ceremonies and move out day on the same day, on the same campus????

It took me like 2 hours just to get where I was going. I wish I had known better before I got stuck in that traffic.

Anywho...You 0Ls...since the law school is the only school on the semester system, enjoy the first 3 weeks or so because there will be NO UNDERGRADS!! The campus will be peaceful and lovely.  ;D

Will anyone else being making the transition from the quarter to semester system (calling all fellow UC undergraduates)? Additionally, who has taken time off and who is going straight from undergrad? 
I took a year off to do AmeriCorps; I loved it but am looking forward to going back to school (especially if it means I get to sleep past 6:30)!

Guac's probably more than 200 calories, as avocado's the highest calorie veggie known to man.

It depends on the serving size. At the Chipotle I frequent they are notoriously stingy with the guacamole, only 4 ounces or so. Of course, I could just be deluding myself. If so, ignorance is bliss.

Has anyone ever tried Rubio's Health Mex Burritos. You can get grilled mahi-mahi, chicken, or veggie. SO DELICIOUS. There are tons of Rubio's in San Diego but I was wondering about the rest of the nation.

it ain't bad.. of course i don't count calories... maybe to see if it has enough.. :)

Yeah I couldn't tell you how many calories are in my food to save my life.  Chipotle?  Chicken burrito with black beans, rice, cheese, sour cream, guac, corn salsa, tomato salsa, hot salsa, and lettuce.  How much is that? ;)

Chipotle Burritos with all the trimmings (minus the guac) have about 1,100 calories. I'd add between 150-200 calories for the guacamole. If you want to punish and depress yourself www.Calorieking.com is a great site with the nutritional information from lots of places (including Chipotle). In addition to the nutritional information there's a sidebar that tells you how much of what exercise you'd have to do to burn siad food off.

Gengis, have you ever tried the PhytoSpecific conditioners?  Not that they're any cheaper than Biolage, but I swear by them.  They're just for the women with the curls, too. 

A few years ago I won a CurlyGirl.com contest and got a makeover and a bunch of free PhytoSpecific products in exchange for letting them use my mug on their website.  A Frivolous Female's dream...:D

That's great!  Back in '03 I won a Stila/Sephora contest to be the "Ultimate Stila Girl" and was on their website and got a bunch of free Stila.  It was a good day in the Berry Household.

EDIT:  I'm still mad I submitted such a crappy picture after I won.  I don't know what I was thinking.

I'm jealous! What did you win? What is a Stila Girl and how do I become one (I think the hundreds of dollars I've dropped on their products would make me a definite shoo-in)?!? I ADORE Stila's eyeshadows and lip glosses. I'm also a HUGE Shesido fan (for their foundation-great for those of us with yellow undertones) and an AVEDA enthusiast (Rosemary Mint Shampoo-yum). Also a question: Does anyone else use a razor blade designed for a male to shave her legs (I'm partial to MACH 3-Turbo, I just click the blade on my pink Venus base)? I think they work better.

I reapplied and got into several schools that dinged me the first time around. I took the year to serve as an AmeriCorps*VISTA member at an international human rights non-profit organization(best decision fo my life), and LOVED it. My applications did however, come complete with a higher LSAT Score, a new PS, and a new LOR (from my AmeriCorps supervisor).

You're allowed to listen to music during the run?! I'm planning on running a 1/2 in July and iPods are a non-go. I'm jealous. Anyway I admit to listening to 80's music while I train. A few favorites:

Vacation (The GoGos)
Girls Just Want to Have Fun
Jessie's Girl (Rick Springfield)
Jump (FOR MY LOVE) (Pointer Sister's)
Anything by Billy Joel

And I emailed about getting fin. aid/scholarships and never heard back.  Drat.  I was hoping to save some money by going to UCLA.  At this point might as well have paid full price at a T14  :-\

I got an envelope in the mail last Friday, which I thought might possibly be aid information since I haven't received anything, not even loan info.  Instead, it was an invitation to a summer program for students whose "undergraduate performance indicates they could use a little extra help in LS."   Considerate, but this has not endeared them to me.

I got this letter as well. However, I was under the impression that it had been sent to everyone, especially given the fact that it wasn't addressed to me personally, but rather to "Dear Law Student" (or something similar).This is especially true since I didn't meet any of the criteria specified in the letter (only a year out of undergrad, Southern California native, child of college graduates, so-on and so-forth).
It's probably in UCLA's best interest to send it to all incoming 1L's, otherwise select groups might resent the fact that they were singled out to receive it (or not receive it). All that being said, it seems like a great opportunity to get to knwo the campus and some fellow students.Thoughts?   

No, I think you're right.  I was just being facetious.  (I thought, or hoped, it was financial info, as well, so it wasn't the most welcome mail.)  An extended orientation is a good idea; it would be worth their while to make it a little more general and have it apply to everyone (and encourage everyone to attend).  My UG offered an extended orientation with activities before freshman year and I attended.  It was great because it gave me an opportunity to meet more people; the friends I made at orientation ended up being my sophmore and junior year roommates and it was great going into classes already knowing a few people.

FYI: I e-mailed Dean Schwartz to ask when we might expect the Financial Aid Letters and he said they should be going out this week (though I don't know in what form-e-mail, snail mail, etc.).

For what it's worth I opted for UCLA over Georgetown and Northwestern. Granted, I'm a native Southern Californian and want to practice in-state, so the choice (especially when you factor in the in-state tuition) was an easy one.
