Does anyone know when they are gonna be moving to Dallas? I'm still waiting on my fiancee to find a job before we nail any dates down. Btw, if anyone currently knows of any full time positions open to recent college grads with a communications degree, pm me.

Boyfriend and I are headed down from Chicago July 28-30. I am apartment hunting next week when I come down for the ASD for evening people.

Tell your fiancé to check with a recruiter or temp-to-perm company. They always have openings and if she hates the initial assignment, she can bail. My sister found her career that way, started as a temp then they kept her. I think she used OfficeTeam.

+1 to the late July people. Going to try to get settled in by the 6th of August so I can make it to Tech's summer grad ceremony on the 8th of August -- bestie is graduating (finally -- he's on the van wilder plan! it's his 7th year of undergrad!)

Depending on the season, you could do it. In the summer and winter it could be rough though.

Is anyone else a Spurs fan? Or am I doomed to be surrounded by delusional Mavericks for the next 3 years?

It's theoretically doable but I wouldn't want to. You have to cross 75 not to mention from August til about mid october you'd sweat your ass off by the time you got to school.

That would be a pretty easy ride - crossing 75 isn't really a problem as you could just cross over on Southwestern. The only problem, as others have said, is that you'd be sweating like crazy in the summer

You'll cut down on car use, but you'll also have to buy the parking pass anyways, and the law parking garage is going to be super convenient. Half the reason I'd want to bike is that I'd like to not have to worry about parking, which doesn't seem like it'd be an issue. I'll probably bring my bike and do it on the nice days though, its a nice area, and it'd probably only take 15-20 minutes or so to get to campus.

You're not alone! I did my undergrad in SA :) It's nice to root for a team who doesn't get kicked out of the play-offs in the first round every year.

Hate the Mavs, so I guess that makes me somewhat of a Spurs fan, right?

I'm a rockets "fan" (don't really do basketball), but I root for the Spurs just because Mavs fans really amuse me with all the bitterness towards them.

Okay, I got my @smu.edu email today, so I'm stoked that I'm official now!

But now I have a problem. It's super small and really stupid, but it will probably bug me for forever: the display name on the email is "Last, First M.". Is there any way we can change that to show "First M. Last" or something? I tried editing it, but that was an un-editable field.

Anyone?

I got my letter today, and noticed/tried to change the exact same thing. No luck. I think we're stuck with it.

Ugh, I know it's SO minor, but it's just one of those things I'm not going to be able to get over. Hahaha. Glad someone else shares my OCD tendencies.

I don't think you're going to have a problem finding people who share your OCD tendencies. You're going to law school. You're going to spend the next three years with a few hundred of the most anal people you've ever met.


:D
