The lease says no dogs and you need written permission for a pet, but I see lots of people with cute little puppies so obviously you can have them.


I don't live there but based on what I know from friends who do, you're allowed to have little dogs only but apparently even people with big dogs haven't been properly told they're not allowed.

Ahhh - get a doggy so I can dogsit and take it to the dog park at Jefferson Ridge! If I didn't already own a cat and want to go abroad during law school I would already own a dog. It's much easier to get my parents to let my cat hang out at their house for a few months than convincing them to take on a third dog....

http://www.amazon.com/Livescribe-1GB-Pu ... 017&sr=8-2

Basically it's a pen that records everything you write while you write it, making it like writing in a (special, $5/each) notebook produces output as though you were writing onto a tablet PC. It simultaneously records audio and ties the audio it records to your pen strokes so you can play back the audio from the moment you were writing something specific. It also has bells and whistles - but most importantly, the reviews suggest it actually works well (lots of gizmos like that sound great but work terribly).

Seems like it might be a great investment for a class schedule with lots of profs who frowned upon and/or flat up disallowed laptops, and for ~$150 plus 20-30 bucks worth of notebooks and ink it could be a useful investment. Any thoughts?

I seem to remember a thread on this a while back. Give me a sec to dig it up.

Edit: Here it is.

The only problems I can think of are addressed in the first response about whether a professor will let you record a class lecture. Barring that, I might actually look into using my computer's microphone to record stuff, but I can't really see myself wading through recordings to look for (I hope) tiny things that I missed the first go round.

I'm not really sure, I don't know much about law school parking. If you were able to park where the 2Ls and 3Ls park then it would only be a short walk across the parking lot (2-3 minutes).

Is this what you're referring to? http://www.law.virginia.edu/html/inside ... rvices.htm.

I long to be back in my UG town (which often gets compared to C-ville actually). Right now I'm stuck in a shit job in a shit city and can't quit because I have rent and a car payment through August. This is what prison must feel like, but thankfully I get paroled in six weeks.

Part of going back to law school is just wanting to live somewhere fun again. Is that so wrong?

Icing on the cake, really.

There is nothing I'm looking forward to more than getting out of this (partially self-created) rut that I've been in since getting into law school.

This thread is kinda slowing down. Anyone moving in soon?

YRC- how are you liking it up here so far?

I need to go find a job this week.

4. I suspect that parking on Arlington could get tedious given that's it's often packed during the day right now (starting at about 08:00) and school isn't even in session.


It's packed now because graduated 3Ls are taking Bar Bri courses at the law school and don't have parking passes anymore. It is normally pretty packed during the school year though.

I got Netflix after you talked about it before, and I am loving it. I seem to get a movie the day after they get my last one in the mail. If you have any tips on getting them faster or things I should be doing let me know. We have only gotten 2 movies so far, we are doing the "free trial", but I think I'll be continuing it because it is fun to get movies in the mail!

The iPhone said there was a USPS in Barracks, but I couldn't find it. I was looking at the wrong end of the shopping center, so that's good to know.

Confession: I schedule my week around my Netflix...it's an addiction. Ever since they added the watch instantly option my life has been a difficult compromise between seeing friends/family/leaving the house and watching Netflix on my computer...

Thanks!

I haven't used the instant watch option yet, but I have started adding movies to my instant watch queue so that next time I have a little time I will have one ready to watch. I also have a DVR and cable so now it's like what do I watch?!

I have just been dropping mine off in the mailbox here in the morning, the mailman comes in the afternoon (I think- anyone at the Woodlands feel free to correct me if I'm wrong), is that not what I should be doing?

It starts innocently, but by the end it has gone full-gunner and says flat out you are guaranteed to get As if you read all of the hornbooks and E&Es and bla bla bla during the summer before law school. Seems to fly in the face of anything I've actually heard from law students...

Also, I fantasize more often about the barracks road shopping center than about any other part of next year.


Anyone who says "XYZ is the guaranteed road to success" is full of it. Logically, reading something before you can full understand it (that's why we have professors and lectures) is counterintuitive to the max.
