You are going to get all the lawannounce experiences you could ask for without me rehashing stuff from last year. I highly recommend setting up a filter so lawannounce goes to a separate folder and doesn't hit your inbox.

You guys post some really helpful links! Thanks so much! I can't bring myself to sift through all the stuff on the facebook page. I'm so glad we have this thread.
Are some of you still without an email with the tuition statement? I haven't received anything - although I did fill out the paperwork late. I wonder if I can just talk to someone in the financial aid office if I go over there tomorrow. I'm all moved in (minus the dishwasher, which will come if we complain enough about it) and live really close to the law school, so I hope I can basically just walk in and make my way to the right people to talk to about tuition / administrative questions.

yep still no email about that stuff. I got all my information in very quickly, but there was a slight change to my initial loans etc. (something on their end). So maybe that's why i haven't received mine.
I'm going to give them until early september to let me know because then i'll be in chicago and be able to go in and talk to them personally.

I'm about to out myself as slightly computer illiterate, but, if you haven't bought MS Office for your PC yet, you might be able to benefit from a stupid mistake I made recently.

I wanted One Note in addition to Office 2011 for my snazzy new MacBook Air, so I bought both Office 2011: mac AND Office Professional Plus 2010. Well, as you might already know (and as I only recently discovered), One Note (and Prof. Plus 2010, for that matter) only works with PCs…aaand UChi's tech store won't let me return it. If you're in need of Office (and One Note!) for your PC, let me know. I'd be happy to sell it to you for less than what I paid for it. PM me if you're interested.

This sounds like a job for listserv

Perhaps...but then I'd have to publicly own my dumb mistake.

You can run one note via parallels or bootcamp

Wouldn't that require me to buy/download a Windows OS?

I haven't tried it, but would CrossOver work in this situation?

Just went over to the law school, here are some things people may want to know (unless I'm really behind, and you all know this stuff already).
--All of the tuition bills went out a few days ago. If you didn't get an email with your tuition bill, it's probably because you didn't sign up for E-Billing (which you can do on the Bursar website - accessible through a link on the June newsletter). While on that website, it may be helpful to sign up for direct deposit for the stipend.
--Tuition is due on the 16th of September, so loans will process through system, pay the tuition, fees, and health insurance (if you signed up for it), and the rest will be directed to you soon after (they will send you a check if you didn't sign up for direct deposit).
--You can pick up your student ID as of Sept. 1st. You pick it up in the Regenstein library (57th between University and Ellis), on the first floor.
--Once you have your student ID you should be able to access all of the places law students can access, which, I was told, includes Ratner (the gym).
--As of Sept. 1st, you can see a doctor in the medical center if you signed up for U of C insurance.
So, basically, it seems that there is a 1/2 month grace period in which we can use the facilities, access healthcare, etc. before our tuition payments go through. At least this is what I was told (well, actually I summarized it this way to the guy in admissions / financial aid, and he nodded in agreement).
Also, for those that are not bringing cars but want access to a car, there are several zip car lots on campus, one of which is about a block and a half east of the law school.

Thank you so much! I just saw my bill, saw that I was signed up for health insurance incorrectly, submitted my health insurance waiver, and signed up for direct deposit. Glad to have these important things taken care of.

Yes, but it's only $30-$40 from the it dept. Depending on the loss you might take on reselling office, it might pay for itself.

I ran Onenote on my mac last year using Parallels. It worked flawlessly, but I would have been just fine with Circus Ponies Notebook.

Can I, um, just use Word for my notes? I'm really hopeless with computer things, and I don't think I could figure out how to work something new before classes start.

Word would be fine. Just set it to notebook mode. My guess is your lecture notes will be in some sort of outline format.

I think the real draw of OneNote is the ease with which you can format things. For example, you can (easily) add text boxes wherever you'd like on your notes pages.

I didn't really know the value of one note until I read viewtopic.php?f=3&t=163781 and realized what a powerful program it is. Esp when coupled with outlook.

I know that this has been asked and answered before either here or in the uchi 2ls taking ?s thread, but I can't seem to find it. Does anyone remember the general time we can expect to be out of class on Fridays? Trying to buy a flight.
