just wanted to ask what propelled you to choose FSU as your law school. Why FSU>UF if you applied to both? I work M-F 8-5 and can't really come see it (I live in Tampa, though, so I've been there 1 time before for the USF/FSU game.) So I'd love some info!
PS- I didn't like UF too much because it seemed very Overly competitive and lacked a social aspect that I love about college!



I chose FSU because the atmosphere there was great. I went up there a few weeks ago to hang out with the person I will be living with who will be a 2L. We went tubing down a nearby river with about 30 other law students, and I had a great time. Everyone there was really friendly and I seemed to fit in with their group right away. I know some UF students, as well as a lot of attorneys that went to UF, and I have just never gotten the same vibe from them. I'm sure there are some great people at UF law, but I just got a great feeling from FSU. On top of all this, FSU is a great school. I applied to UF, and would have gotten in, but I withdrew my application after I was accepted to FSU and a few other schools. Hopefully this was helpful.


Whoa. You went down Bear Paw (I assume) with 30 people. You guys are hardcore. My usual group of 10 can barely stay together! haha!



Yeah, it was a challenge. People tend to stick close to the raft with all the beer in it though. Imagine that.

I'm visiting my parents in Dallas and I went to IKEA the other day for the first time. Whoa!!! Lots of good shit. You could just get your stuff there and have it shipped, no? Some of the best deals for furniture (if you like traditional, wood furniture) are on Cap Cir NW in Tallahassee. There are a lot of used furniture dealers on this stretch and you can find a lot of good condition chest of drawers, bed stands, tables, etc.

I'm moving up on the 8th. It'll probably take me two days to get there from Iowa.

Academic Calender says August 30th. Setting up Suntrust/fsucard direct deposit is typically the fastest way to receive your aid, and is best done at the same time when you get your FSUcard. The offices are right next to one another. And you can double check that you requested for direct deposit instead of a check in your secure apps on blackboard. I'm hoping it appears a few days sooner.

Thanks!
I'm hoping it appears a few days sooner too. I assume though that it is more likely to be late than early.

Anybody who lives or lived in Tally have a recommendation for TV/Internet between Comcast and embark? In Central Florida we have Brighthouse so I am clueless.

You can get a lot of Comcast specials through third parties online. Just google and you should be able to find some...And I think we should definitely have a class field trip to Bear Paw. I'll buy ice.

Saturday the 14th would be a good day for that. I'd bet 90% will be down there by then.

That Saturday (9/4) is the first home football game, so you may not want to do it then or you probably won't get as many people to go.
