Incoming 1Ls / Re: What are you doing about health insurance?

Anthem has a pretty decent plan (at least in Indiana).  The Indiana University system has good insurance for grad students, with no co-pay when you use the student health center.  UGA was the same way.

I love tall women who wear heels. It's so glamazon. I'm 5'2 or 5'3 so I will never get to experience this! I definately don't think 4" is too much. That's a fairly standard stilletto height. I know a lot of professional women who wear 4"+, since obviously it's a trend in footwear for the past season or two to have towering heels and big platforms. That said, for a conservative law firm, I probably wouldn't go over 4", but I think this is a perfectly appropriate height.

My cousin is 6'3" and she wore 3" heels for my  wedding -- they were hot pink.  It was awesome.

I don't know about Banana Republic, but I love J. Crew's cut and quality (and sale prices!).

I'm with Siski -- I am frantically trying to finish a thesis so I can defend it by the deadline and graduate (otherwise these last three years will have been worthless).  After that I am looking forward to a full month of long days with nothing pressing to do.

I wish you could select more than one! Primarily, I find the law interesting, but it will provide more employment opportunities than would my B.A. or M.S., and at a higher salary.  I wouldn't necessarily say I'm in it for a six-figure income, although now a six-figure income just won't get you as far as it used to, so I guess if I want to be able to afford things like daycare and a college education for my (future, unborn) children, I guess I'm in it for that, too!

No, actually I was being serious. TimMitchell seems to have a pretty big fan club.

TimMitchell: best of luck on Yale! I hope I see you listed under YAle on the Class of 2012 thread!

Well, now that it has the TimMitchell stamp of approval I'm sure it will get much more traffic!
(uh, but you sort of missed the point, which is to tell me what school you're attending so I can add you to the list!)

Sign me up! I'd be more inclined if the buy-in were toward the lower end, though . . . .

That must be some pretty good spunk!
