also im confused by the whole our deposit being applied to our tuition thing..does that mean our fall refund check will include our deposit money or does it mean that the loans that we requested will be lowered..if that makes any sense.


Thanks...did you get a quote for internet or just the tv portion....and I'm pretty sure our tuition will be lowered by $1500 so when we receive our refund checks it will have an extra 1500

Just tv..my building provides the net for me..and the whole deposit thing doesn't make sense..lol.so in the end we are exchanging 1500 cash deposit to 1500 from loan money with interest attached

I could be wrong but I'm pretty sure its just like..but you could always adjust how much loans you take out by 1500

I had Comcast in undergrad and never had a single problem, they were always really great. Obviously could be a regional thing, but I'll be going with them. I'll definitely be taking advantage of whatever "X free months of HBO" offer they have going on.

omg its actually making me sick seeing how much law school books cost, esp since we wont get our schedule until days before class which excludes the possibility of getting them cheaper online =(, to put this in context, i saw one book thats like 190 new at the bookstore and 140 used..online used in a reasonable condition is $30...at least its only one semester of paying these crazy costs, im assuming the other semesters will be cheaper since we'll have our schedules ahead of time.

Im actually going to order pretty much all my books online on the firs day of orientation and just pay for the expedited shipping..They should get here by Wednesday or Tuesday of the first week of school at the latest..and i figure I can suck it up and read the books on reserve in the library or a friends book for a couple of days if it saves me $500+

i was actually thinking about this as well until a few current students on the fb group said that was a serious bad idea and that we shouldnt risk not having our materials not even for one day, just think if it gets ther wednesday, thats missing monday tuesday and wednesday work (well not missing but making it a bigger pain to do it without your own stuff)

I was thinking the same thing but I have three roomates so if even one of them buys their books through the bookstore i can read from their books, plus everyone seems friendly enough to let me read their books, so at the end of the day its just a major hassle for 2or 3 days, if that so im just going to deal with it..i can see where you wouldnt want to not have books for a week plus but i think I can handle it for 1 or 2 days

Plus on the facebook group someone said that they wouldnt recommend waiting 1 or 2 weeks to get them (which i definately agree with) then another guy said he ordered them online and got all but one his books on time using expedited shipping

I think between 800 and 1k, from what I've read, that's if u get all new though..when I checked one law book on the bookstore site, the new price isn't much different than a new price on amazon, the uses prices are extremely different tho, but again, you have to risk shipping times..I'll probably jus suck it up for first semester, esp since u can jus bill ur student account for the books

Anyone have information on class size at this point? I know at one point it was posted that the email list was down to 160ish, but I just looked through the global contact list and I'm counting 200+ in 2015. I know this is arbitrary and we'll find out soon, but I am curious.
