For those looking for bedding for the dorm. I found this at my local walmart. It is only 45 dollars there.
--LinkRemoved--
They also have a pink one.

I read the reviews and one review is bad and one is good. Not sure if I am going to get it or not.

Wow, that's crazy you get so much. The pink one had good reviews, and I assume it's pretty much the same, except for the color. I think the plus side of this is that it's inexpensive and you're probably only going to need twin XL/dorm stuff for one year anyway!

That is what I am thinking, but I am really a thread count, quality, material snob when it comes to my sheets... I don't know if I'll be able to do it, but I think worst comes to worst I can buy another set of sheets if I hate these and not be out much money. With the towels, hamper, and mattress pad still being used. Mattress pads alone are usually 20.

That's an awesome deal, you get so much. I got a bed-in-a-bag from Sears for $29, it was marked down from like $79 so naturally I was pumped. I'm very picky, my mom was ready to kill me. I'm a snob about thread count, too, I am going to buy a couple of sets of sheets. I got my mattress pad plus a mattress cover at Marshall's of all places for $20 total. I am also going to head to Christmas Tree Shoppe (no, they don't sell Christmas trees and yes, they are amazing) and get a lot of stuff because they are so cheap and I can't go wrong. Oh, and as far as pots & pans, I got a whole huge set for $49 at Bed, Bath & Beyond if anyone else needs that stuff.

Hmm, if you're really fussy, you might want to go another route (Edit: Because it's probably better to spend a little money on something you'll really like). Although, do they make high quality XL twin sheets? Haha, it seems like most of them are 200 thread count dorm sheets.



I got a larger comforter, so I can use mine next year wherever I will be, even if it looks a little oversized on my twin bed!

Only one of the above people is even actually in law school. The other is an interloper.
Thanks for how helpful you've been, Heather. :)

Also, Heather was in Section 3, sans elective...probably best to touch base with your peer adviser.

I saw in §3, so I didn't get one, but most of my friends took International Law with mixed reviews.

Hey, if any of you have any friends studying for the LSAT, tell 'em to sign up for my games at http://www.grockit.com/lsat. It's free to make an account and play in group games, plus I rule :D

Thanks!

Oh yeah, and we exclusively use real LSAT content, by the way.

I don’t know anyone who is still studying for the LSAT. Everyone I know who was going to take it took it at the same time as me or in Dec of last year. Sorry.

Gilchristh: do we get any type of free printing or a credit to print? Trying to decide if I want to buy a laser printer.

You can print as much as you want from Westlaw or LexisNexis for free, but anything else you have to pay for using your GOcard. I'd recommend having a printer in your room or maybe sharing one with your roommate--one buys the printer and the other chips in for ink and paper, something like that.

+1

Anyone have any recommendations for a decent printer with cheap ink replacements?

I actually lived in the area the past 3 years. meetinDC and meetup.com are great places that people I know have found to make friends and meet new people of varying interests, etc.

Printing with:

Please let me know your opinion and of any better prices.

Edit: Forgot me.
