Might want to switch to full joking. If your classmates found out, they'd probably turn you in.

My LRW class banned them.

Ditto.

But lying is against the Honor Code.


rofl.

yeah violating honor codes and such is some dangerous c&f territory that's simply not worth it.

Actually, ITC will service any UVa bundle....what they won't guarantee is that you get a matching loaner laptop while they service it.

You should be able to... the biggest difference is that Cavalier Computers would provide service and not the law school's ITS.

I have a chronic health condition and have been on numerous health plans over the years....Aetna is by far the worst in terms of coverage, and it is dramatically worse than the plan I had previously when I was working. The premium isn't horrible, but the out of pocket can quickly get to be ridiculous for someone living on loans. I'd much rather pay a higher premium up front, because I can plan/budget for a premium, but the other stuff is a complete "unknown" until you get the EOB statement. I've also had some serious customer service issues (i.e., for 11 months, despite numerous phone calls, they insisted on sending everything to my former address in MA). So, after wasting hours on the phone and spending $5500 on health care this year (bye bye savings...), I am not a fan.

Anyone read this article from Virginia's Senator James Webb published in the Journal a few days ago? Interesting that this is coming from a democrat... Does Virginia typically vote blue or red?

Solidly purple... Northern Virginia tends to vote blue, Richmond and Norfolk/Va Beach area tend to vote red, and Western VA tends to vote red, with the exception of Charlottesville which is solidly blue

Yes, this was covered on Meet The Press. I was a little surprised that he wrote this. Speaking of politics though, I'm glad I'll be going to a state that has a reasonable Republican as Governor.

I guess going by Republican antics these days, McDonnell can be considered reasonable. But watch out for their Attorney-General though..LoLz

Yeah, the only difference is the loaner laptop will be one of the law school bundle models, so it might end up a bit different than the laptop you're getting serviced. Since it's just a loaner that shouldn't be much of a problem for you.

Okay, so I have been out of town for the last 3 weeks, so I am trying to catch up.

On SIS today the QuickPay link is not working, but I can still view a summary of my bill on the "Account Inquiry" and it says that the semester charges are $22,750 which seems to be $2,000 less than the amount I thought it would be . . .

Anyway, has anybody had this problem with the QuickPay link not working?

That's the total amount for me (well $2 less than that) which means that they're charging you Class of 2011 and 2012 rates and not Class of 2013.


Hmm . . . Any other 2013ers have this amount? Or am I alone . . .

Online it says the total tuition cost for 2013 is $47,500. One half of that is $23,750. That's your first semester amount due.

You already paid two $500 deposits, which brings your bill down to $22,750, though your loan disbursement for that portion should be $23,750 and you'll get your $1,000 in deposits back.

I think it may be the tuition and fees amount less your deposit (which is credited towards Fall tuition). Tuition and fees are $23,750 for this semester, and I bet you paid a $1000 total deposit, correct? (My stuff is all wonky due to the fact that I've already been in a grad program here for a year)

Ah! The deposit, didn't consider that . . . thanks.
