But is it just me or did section E take one up the backend? Outside of Jeffries and Sprigman, the line-up seems pretty dreadful. Here's to hoping the Penn guy is good...


FWIW, I kind of liked O'Connell

You can get this stuff called 20 Mule Team Borax at the grocery store, Walmart, Target. I think its a type of boric acid like YCRev suggested. The bugs were really bad in Gainesville so what I did was put the powder outside my front door and all along the baseboards in my apartment. Leave it there for a couple days (I left it for a week while I was out of town), and then vacuum it up. You'll soon start finding dead bugs :shock: (I'm terrified of roaches).

Anyways, here's a link I found with more details depending on what bugs you are having problems with http://www.ehow.com/how_5611402_kill-insects-borax.html

Good luck!

Last year when I had a bug problem I bought Hot Shot insect killer at Harris Teeter and just sprayed it on the edges of the windows and doors. It says it works for 12 weeks but I haven't had any problems since and that was a number of months ago.

Came across this while looking for info on one of my profs:

http://www.collegiatetimes.com/database ... 0?dept=law

So that we can all know just how valuable our professors are...

Anyone else go to the Public Service Day event? It was a lot of fun but pretty darn tiring. I thought it was great that nearly a 1/3rd of the class signed up for it!

Yea whats up with VA and the widow population. Yea but I have seen an aggressive house spider. Not as poisonous but bigger with a bad attitude. Thing was ready to attack right before he met the bottom of my shoe. Like squashing a frickin mouse.

I used some Raid (indoor/outdoor with an auto trigger, ~$12 at Target). Sprayed inside and around the foundation, window sills, etc. outside. It has dramatically lowered the number of spiders I've killed as compared to my first week here. Supposedly lasts for twelve months.

So, the orientation schedule has sign in from 8:00 - 9:30, is everyone planning on showing up at 8 sharp? On one hand I don't want to be late, but on the other I don't want to sign in at 8 and stand around for an hour and a half.

Recalling my fuzzy memories of last year, don't bother showing up until 910-915ish

Cya brosefs and brosefinas. If I arrive late, someone save me a bagel (if they provide them).

...and why exactly does anyone choose to teach??? (when they could be making severe bank at the top of their fields)....some of those numbers are just appalling (e.g. jason dugas) for the amount of time and effort they put in to the law school. i can't believe they publish this stuff.

This assumes, of course, that the skills that make one a successful professor are the same as those that make one a successful lawyer.

Even assuming they would all be partners somewhere, being a prof has huge benefits. You don't work many hours, you're essentially your own boss, you get massive vacation time and public retiree benefits, there's major prestige associated with the position, and you still make quite a bit of money, particularly given the COL in the area (the lowest-paid of my four non-LRW profs makes $175K, which is equivalent to $300K+ in NYC).

Also, I don't if law profs get the same kinds of consulting opportunities that business profs get, but I know that my b-school profs typically made as much or more in side work as they did in salary.

Now, if the question were "Why does anyone become an administrator?" the case would be a whole lot tougher to make.
