If this has already been discussed, ignore me since I have fallen behind on the board...damn summer and the good weather that keeps me outdoors!


We've debated the bundles a lot on here back and forth. While I've been against it for a long time, I think I'm about to break down and buy the mac bundle now, because I really like the idea of their free loaner laptops and in-the-law-school service if you buy the bundle. It costs slightly more, but the peace of mind should be worth it.

With the new lineup (13" Macbook), I think several of us agreed that buying from Apple was the better deal even including Apple Care, especially given their usual back to school promotions of free ipods.

Richmond is really not that far, so if you did have to take it in I don't think it would be a big deal. Apple has really great customer service. Also, if you aren't a Mac owner, remember that Macs don't have problems all the time like PCs. I have had this one for several years with no issues yet.

As someone else said many pages ago, it looks like the school promotion free ipod deal is also available if you get the mac from the school.

Oh, sorry, I guess I must have missed that.

I would still buy from Apple, but I'm weird so don't go by me.

I'm trying to track it down. Something about akin to 'economy sucks', but a tiny bit more nuanced than that, but not much.

It was kgustao and starts on page 140. At least, I think that's what was under discussion.

No, it was the argument about Marcus Epstein and whether he bumped a girl or assaulted her with a karate chop.

Oooh, yeah. That was a couple tens of pages later. Then Mallard got in a tizzy and Underdawg decided to post a couple more times. Good times, good times.

Ah yes, I remember the epic switch to Chipotle that followed.

Oh, yeah. Now I remember. Thanks for clearing that up. This thread does move fast! I had almost forgotten about that (hence, my confusion).

For anyone of the class of 2011 (or I suppose any twelvers), does anyone plan on taking any kind of classes with the university unrelated to law? for example, language classes?

+1 This is a great question. I read somewhere that up to 12 hours of other classes can count towards your J.D. I've been wondering if anyone did that.

I don't plan to, too annoying to go to the undergrad buildings.

I really would like to take some language classes if at all possible...I was an International Studies major and would like to not get rusty. Anyone know about this?

That's what I was wondering about. I'm not sure if it's feasible/advisable to do it 1L, at least first semester, but beyond that, I'm not sure.
