Yeah, I got the same email. I'm not doing it again.

UVA's law school administration has had a lackluster performance IMO wrt the class of 2012 thus far.


Don't get me started on their performance with our class lately. I do love this school but the administration could use a tune up.

Hmm, didn't work for me. What is the "UVa Student System ID Number"? I don't remember ever getting that.

It's from an email titled "RE: Information on Applying for Financial Aid at the University of Virginia School of Law" from "Virginia Law Admissions." I got mine January 29, 2009. Your UVa Student Information System ID is located at the conclusion of the email.


Bingo. Thanks YC. I don't how I didn't remember to put in that number.

Talked to the director of financial aid a short time ago and she told me not to worry if the loan counseling shows up in your to-do list and you have already done it. If its still there mid next week, call them, but they are just doing the updates to the SIS system in stages. She said they were going to get a few updates in the next couple days and it should take care of itself.

She was very helpful and nice and the rest of the office has been too. The software is just new and they are switching over in chunks and correcting stuff as they go.

That's what I get for posting at 4AM after scrubbing my bathroom. This whole "I'm gonna move across the country soon" thing is starting to wear on me, I'll be glad when it's over.

I think we all should be given power to invite people to the Facebook group. It should be a lot larger than it currently is.

I'm transferred from LLM so I'll only have to take CrimLaw, Torts, Property and LRW with a JD section next year.

Just heard that I got to choose which section to be with, so based on this guess I'll have to stick with Section A lol

If that happens then all of my 1L courses would be all-star (took Contracts with Kraus, CivPro with Nelson and ConLaw with Ryan last year)

The only problem is Section A will have LRW on Friday afternoons for spring, which is messed up

basically for a UVA LLM who wants to transfer to JD, all they need is a grade above b+ (graded with JDs), and of course application form and personal statement and recommendation letters and all the stuffs all over again. LSAT is waived though

Off-topic...can anyone who has already moved into Ivy Gardens provide some estimates of your monthly utility bills? Also, I've heard that NTC (cable/internet) has a monopoly and is a ripoff. Is it true that they make you pay for individual internet access accounts (meaning that if you have 2 roommates you can't split the internet bill 3 ways - you each need to get your own service) ?


just moved in so not sure about the exact utility amounts yet but ntc cable is like $52/mo plus $16 i think if you want hbo and a few other premium channels. internet is $25 a person, but you just activate one and plug in a wireless router and you are good to go for everyone in your apt. (they even told me to do this over the phone).

$52 per month for cable is insanely expensive! That's surprising that they told you to use a wireless router. I've read that using a wireless router was prohibited.

Really? I'll be getting cable for $29.99, but only for a year before it goes doubles to $60.00 with Comcast.

Any non-virginians register for Virginia license plates yet? I'm trying to anticipate how painful this process will be. The dmv website doesn't make it seem like fun.

Is there a reason you have to do this? Given how much they screw VA drivers on tickets, I would advise against getting VA plates if you can avoid it.

If anyone else has already started the process of switching plates/licenses, I am curious too. I am not going to do it, but my bf is needing to in order to try and gain residency next year.

Definitely should avoid getting Virginia plates. There is a personal property tax levied on Virginia vehicles. (It's an "annual" personal property tax, but you have to pay it every 6 months.) The tax is on top of the fees you'll pay for registering, new plates, etc... Obviously, the nicer your car is, the worse you get hit.

"The personal property tax rate is set by City Council in mid-April of each year. The rate is currently $4.20 per $100 of value (4.2%)." http://www.charlottesville.org/Index.aspx?page=413
"Personal property taxes are assessed each year by the Commissioner of Revenue's Office for all tangible personal property garaged within the City of Charlottesville. Taxes are due on June 5th and December 5th of each year." http://www.charlottesville.org/Index.aspx?page=411
