Mormons get a bad rap?

In a liberal area, absolutely. People in Seattle generally have nothing but nasty things to say about Mormons.


:shock:

Maybe it's because I live in AZ, but I almost never hear anyone say bad things about the Mormon community here. At worst, you'll see an eye roll at the discussion of a family with 5+ kids.

Nope, still waiting for mine. I'm surprised its taking so long.


E-mailed the admissions office about this this morning and Mr. Dougas replied back saying the checks would either be in the mail today or tomorrow. So hopefully we should all have something by Friday.

Dang it I thought I was leaving BYU to get AWAY from all the Mormons! I bought a bikini and everything to celebrate my independence (and swimming pools without dress codes).

Really? I bought a Speedo for the same reason. Maybe I'll return it.

A couple of my friends bought Borat swimsuits. Apparently, pictures of them wearing it violated Facebook's policy on uploaded images (even though pictures of Borat himself wearing it do not).

For women, it needs to be a one piece that doesn't show too much cleavage. Men really can't wear speedos, unless they are on the swim team. I think you can wear tight bathing suits as long as it isn't too short.

and showNprove, thanks for the endorsement! looks like we'll be neighbors next year.


I might be your neighbor on the other side. I got an unfurnished 1BR in the same building, deposit already paid.


Wow. That's 5 of us in Arlington Court Condos.

6 if I land this place.

New York is one of the most liberal places in the world and I can't recall a single discussion of Mormons.

Well, I don't think Mormons have quite the same presence in New York as they do on the west coast. Especially after their contribution to Proposition 8 in California, there have been at least a couple protests outside Mormon Temples here.

First, of course, I have to log onto facebook and friend the only Harvard person! :D

Glad to be of service. :)

Repost of email setup directions (with more details):
After logging into SIS (https://sisuva.admin.virginia.edu/psp/e ... PAPP_GUEST) click the email button at the top. A page should come up saying you need set up your email account. After an appropriate click or two to the right links (I don't remember specifically, but it's fairly apparent), you should reach the computing quiz screen. You could also try to set up your email by searching for "UVA email" in Google and then, after clicking on the email accounts page, choose to setup your Gmail or MS Live email address (and it should hopefully prompt you to do the quiz then). Note: you have to choose Gmail or MS Live.

If it doesn't work the first time (you get an error message and you've sent in your first deposit), try another browser and make sure you clear your browser's cache before beginning the email setup process.

Email Aliases:
You can sort-of change your email address by adding aliases to your account (after setup, you can go to a UVA, not Gmail, account managment page to add aliases). Unfortunately, you can only add aliases to your YOURCHOICE@email.virginia.edu; you can't change or add aliases to INITIALSANDRANDOM@virginia.edu. There doesn't appear to be any way to change your username (which is based off of that weird combination).Visit https://ams.itc.virginia.edu/cgi-bin/index.cgi to add/manage aliases (UVa Email Address Management). You may need to log-in before it lets you go to the page. Click "Manage Aliases."

I went ahead and added aliases for my name for the email.virginia.edu domain. I also set up my Thunderbird for UVA Gmail email. This means you can have POP (or SMTP) UVA email which lets you use email clients and should allow you to look up your mail on your Crackberry (I don't have one, so I don't know for sure, but I assume it uses POP or SMTP).

Changing your password
Go to: http://www.itc.virginia.edu/accounts/changelost.html

I changed my eservices password and email switchboard passwords and it seems to have taken care of everything NetBadge related that I've wanted to use. If you want to use a mail client for your Gmail/Live account, you need to make sure the UVA password and Gmail password match (if not, you can reset your gmail password through the Gmail settings page under change password; after logging out, log back in through a UVA link and it should prompt you for a new password).


YC - I just changed everything I would ever need to change and promise not to ask yet AGAIN. Thank you as always!

They made you put your cape around your waist? That would totally ruin the whole Superman vibe!

Another good thing about leaving Provo: I can finally run in a sports bra and shorts instead of always having to wear a tank top! Oh UVA is just looking better and better all the time!

Edited to preserve the dignity of Jason.

Ohhhhh.... Yeah, even over here we heard that the Mormons really threw their weight behind that... thing.

Anyone else just get an email "RE: Information on Applying for Financial Aid at the University of Virginia School of Law"?

Mistake perhaps? Seems like a duplicate of something that was sent months ago.

Has to be...we all filled out our Need-Access stuff ages ago. Fat lot of help it did me anyway...note to parents: when choosing a year to be unemployed, please choose the year BEFORE your child is going to grad school, not the year your child is enrolling in grad school.

Does anyone else get a broken link when they try to do the loan counseling or whatever it is called? I tried yesterday and again today and it takes me to some random page that tells me the link does not exist.

Also, what happens after you apply with your lender and accept the loans? I did it over the weekend, how long should I expect until I hear from someone? What happens next?
