I'm in. Now: what I offer to party with.

A Xbox360 with ever single game ever made for it. That's not a lie. I have them all. 4 controllers. The Rock Band Drums / Guitars. Two good Street Fighter / Tekken sticks. I have a 50dlp TV.

I have a mame cocktail arcade cabinet. It has every arcade game ever made until like 2006 and I'm working on that.

I also have (playable through emulation) every sega master system, NES, SNES, Genesis, TG16, NeoGeo, N64, colecovision, Atari 2600 / 7200 game ever made. If you ever played it, I have it.

I also have PSP & Nintendo DS with every game ever made.

I have a bar in the basement.

Whatcha guys think? Dorks and drinks?


WTF? How come you have never had a videogame party?

TCR is routing it to Gmail, but I think Maize is probably better. "Blue" is the one they had for years, and they just rolled Maize out last year in response to student suggestion/criticism. It also looks prettier.

And to the person who asked, it's a mix in here. PK is a 2L.


By 4 you mean Super Mario World on the SNES? And why the Mario 2 hate -- I thought it was great!

Can I still join in on the video game shenanigans if my only claims to fame are beating Zelda: Ocarina of time, and all of the Guitar Heroes on medium? :mrgreen:

Zelda: OoT was pretty much the best game ever, so of course! Hopefully I can put together a little bit after the beginning of the semester / oci for the 2Ls.

I sent my email around midnight PST and woke up to my crackberry's buzz. I got the NO in less than 4 hours.


Hmm, I'm guessing since it has been 24 hours for me that they are actually considering it? Haha.

Just noticed one of your old posts re: taking the LSAT in Washington--I took the LSAT at Seattle U too! I'm from MI, but living in Seattle right now. You didn't happen to be at SeattleU for the June test, did you? There was a landline telephone in my test room that started ringing with 5 minutes left in Section 1--threw me off for the rest of the test. :(


Man, that is too bad. I did take the test at SeattleU but I guess my room wasn't within the range of that damn phone. Hope you get a favorable response. Sometimes, I feel like there are so many Michigan-ites(?) in Seattle. Personally, I have at least 4 friends who are from Michigan.


I believe it is "Michiganders." :)

You can't do it in your Michigan mail account settings. For some reason they have you go through a separate page (the student directory) and do it there. Here you go: http://www.itd.umich.edu/itcsdocs/s4279/

I frequently lose races! But battle mode... I only lose once I'm blinded from getting a controller thrown at my face by my frustrated opponents.





Non-videogame question: Will I get an email from Michigan to make my email? How long does that take to arrive? It says they sent my deposit received letter out yesterday. I ask because I want to add Michigan Grad '12 to my facebook profile and it requires a university email.

You should get an e-mail pretty soon with instructions. Mine came a few days after I mailed my deposit, and definitely before I received the letter from Dean Z confirming receipt of the deposit

Mailed off my deposit today...finally. Cant wait to create new email. Ahh the small things in life bring so much joy. Is it bad that i'm still a little apprehensive about living in a small town, even though it is supposedly really cool?

Yeah, mine is not quite as "professional" as I'd have liked, but everything practical was taken already. Makes me wish I had a super unique name

I'm worried about living in Ann Arbor, too... but it's only 3 years, and we'll be spending summers elsewhere (at least 2L summer, if not 1L summer as well), so it shouldn't be too bad.

You and me both. I keep wondering if I made the right decision, not for my professional life but for my personal life. Can I really be happy in Ann Arbor? Am I about to spend 3 years of my twenties, arguably the best decade of one's life, in a place where I'll be completely miserable? Anywho, I'm sure the jitters will go away and I'll love it, but...for now that little nagging feeling is always there...

I'm not worried about Ann Arbor in terms of having things to do. My family moved to AA a couple of years ago and they keep themselves really busy with talks and concerts and football games and eating out. I live in a bigger city now, but I figure that with a regular law school course load and the various things to do at the Law School and in AA in general, I won't mind the change.

I imagine that by the end of four years (I'm doing a joint degree) I'll be ready to leave, but I think that anybody but die-hard New Yorkers should be pretty happy in the meantime.

As a winter hater, I am a little concerned about the weather, but I did undergrad in Chicago, so I know I can handle it, albeit with gritted teeth.

yea that's how i feel too. i'm a city girl all the way and the main reason i had such a hard time deciding on schools was because I went to visit Penn and I loved Philly. I feel like Mich offered me more academically which is why I chose it but that nagging feeling has been with me every time I think of the city I didn't choose...

glad i'm not the only one.

yea and i'm terrified of the weather. i have never lived outside of So Cal except for the 3 months I studied abroad...and even that was tropical. So yea, snow is not exciting me. But i hear it def helps u focus on studying because it's so cold. :oops:
