Omigoodness, this is my greatest fear. Last week, when I withdraw from a bunch of schools, every time I started to type in "admissions" into the "to" line, the Georgetown Admissions email would want to auto-fill, since I've communicated with them the most! I got so scared that I would withdraw on accident! That would be such a nightmare.

Anyway, very excited to be attending just wondering if anyone could answer a few questions for me-

-Anyone have any suggestions on good places to live that are relatively affordable? I'm coming from Seattle.
-Since I am a little late in the game, just wondering if anyone is just starting the financial aid process now? (except for fafsa)

Thanks!


Congratulations on your acceptance!! I love your avatar. So excited for Glee tonight!! (especially since the Good Wife is a rerun).

Edit: aww I just saw your thread you posted! I think it's awesome that you're so excited about Georgetown, because I am, too :) Hurray for Gtown love!

Also, when I was at the January ASW, the professors mooted the animal cruelty video case. The Supreme Court ruled on the issue today if anyone is interested:

http://news.blogs.cnn.com/2010/04/20/su ... os/?hpt=T2

I do not support this decision!!!

The GULC profs were correct in their analysis of the issue and of whom SCOTUS would favor.


I want to agree, but is this about free speech or about animal cruelty? I could go murder people and film it and say it was free speech, but murder is illegal.

Is stomping on animals with high heels until they die illegal? It should be. Somebody should make that a law, IMO.

Despite it being 75+ degrees down here in Florida, I though I'd share with you that I am lovingly wearing my Georgetown Law School sweatshirt while writing the final parts of my senior thesis paper on the Constitutionality (lack thereof) of the Defense of Marriage Act. My legal analysis could be entirely wrong, but hell, it's a fun paper to write.

75 degrees? I wish. It was in the 60s today in NYC, but I think it's around 40 now. It's cold. Ugh, I wish we could go back to those couple of days when it was 80 <3

I'm actually really excited about moving from always-hot-and-humid South Florida to a place with real seasons, haha.

+10000!!!!! It had to be hotter than 75 degrees in Orlando today. Or at least it felt that way walking around campus in a black suit!

DC will be so exciting! I can't wait for such novel things like AUTUMN! WINTER! SNOW!

truth be told, i LOVE the winter. my hair always looks nice in the winter because of the lack of humidity. HOWEVER, by april, believe me, you're sick of it! spring is not my favorite because it's usually pretty cold the entire season, and my allergies are just insufferable. i would just like a couple of days at about 75 degrees. that would be nice.\

also, snow is nice and fun, but really inconvenient when you're being lambasted constantly like we were for a time this winter. it was like every week was another nor'easter. like nax said, it's great when you have nowhere to go, sort of like the rain, but if you have to leave the house, it sucks.

Dude, you're gonna get cold real quick.

This winter I was on vacation in Orlando during the big NY/DC snowstorm. I texted all my friends gloating all week. :D Also, I got to pick up a bunch of Rodarte for Target clothes. Seems no one in Central Florida wants leopard print lace dresses. Too bad.


I wanted to post about the Supreme Court case, but you all beat me to it. I would like to say that the reasoning in the decision was very sound (in my uneducated opinion). Particularly the second argument of the summary which states in part;
Section 48 does require that the depicted conduct be “illegal,” but many federal and state laws con- cerning the proper treatment of animals are not designed to guard against animal cruelty. For example, endangered species protections restrict even the humane wounding or killing of animals. The statute draws no distinction based on the reason the conduct is made illegal.


This ruling is really a strong step in keeping these 1st amendment exceptions from going down a slippery slope. I'm sure we'll all be inundated with slippery slope scenarios next year. This is a great example of the court refuting that very step.

It's nice to know I won't be the only one thrilled about snow and seasons. I'm from Texas it was 83 degrees today.

So I know there are a couple of yankee fans here, and I just want to comment about how happy I would be if Javier Vazquez keeps throwing the way he is tonight so far. I've always been a pretty big fan of his, and things were looking awesome his last time around here before the allstar break (2004?), he had like a 3.36 ERA, and he had that first start like 8 innings, 1 ER, and I would just like to see him regain his confidence. He fell apart right after the allstar game and I think he's better than that. It'd be nice if he works out in NY, because I like him. He has great stuff.

BTW, NFL schedules were released today! I'm a little disappointed that the Giants won't play the skins @ fedex until January 2nd, which means I won't be in DC to fight with skins fans during the game!

Yeah, I feel for him and I want him to do well. I think he's overthinking his pitches. He struggled a bit tonight, but I feel like he's gotten his confidence back a little. His velocity is up 5 mph from the first inning.
Go Javy! Get that first win!

OF COURSE as soon as I say it he gives up a solo homer. But it IS only a solo shot, and we're up 6-1, so he needs to just shake it off. The most satisfying wins are when the pitcher pushes through not having his best stuff and comes out with a win.

I, too, was disappointed by the schedules! The Bucs play the Ravens during Thanksgiving break, it looks like, so I'll be home, and it looks like the Skins-Bucs game is Dec. 12, which I have a feeling is going to be in the throes of hell (i.e. finals/studying). Maybe I can take a study break? Haha.

Anyone else excited about the draft?!?!

+1

Some of my best memories involve Javier Vazquez in 2004! I was excited when they resigned him. I am hoping for a repeat performance.

Also, I really really hope the Pats don't trade back forever like they usually do. We need an impact player for once.

The year after I leave? They visit twice. :evil: So maybe I shouldn't miss the opportunity. Anyone know how busy that time of the semester is?


I'm guessing we're always going to be insanely busy. But I have heard that it's good to take one day or evening per week to just get away from it all. So perhaps that can your excuse to get to that game :)

2004 was the worst season ever. But, we won last year, and the red sox look like crap this year, so all is well in the world :)

Very excited about the draft. The giants are smack in the middle this year, it'll be interesting who they pick up.

The other day, I was in PC Richards looking at TVs and on one of them, they were showing Superbowl XLII, Giants/Pats (which I also own on DVD, the entire thing) and I got there just as Eli was throwing the helmet catch pass, and I just sat there with a smile on my face. That was ACTUALLY the best day of my life. I kind of wanted to buy that TV.

Haha I totally get that. We have the DVD of the Bucs-Raiders superbowl, and when my mom and I get depressed about the current state of the team, we watch it. It was such a great year! I'll never forget it. I was actually happy for the Saints winning this year (although I was sad to see my Peyton lose), because it reminded me of the Bucs' win. Nothing like that first superbowl! Although I'm sure every superbowl is special, except maybe to Pats fans haha :P

They are special now that we don't win them every year anymore. I have the DVD (and VHS) of when we won against the Rams. That was probably the best moment of my life until 2004 (and Javier Vazquez).
