Apparently I already have TV so I think Comcast for an extra $5-10 and 50mbps might be worth it just to keep everything under one provider. Since I am completely ignorant about this type of tech stuff, what kind of router/modem should I look to purchase? Would the cheapest one at Best Buy suffice? Anything I could get on Amazon?

If you're tech ignorant, there is no possible way you would need (or probably ever even use) 50Mbps internet. Or even half that.

Anything short of running NASA should be fine on 50. I was saying that he might not need that much (because he said he was tech ignorant), and maybe some money could be saved.

I went for 6, just to see if I could get by on the minimum to stream Netflix. Haven't really been tempted to upgrade.

That's cool, I'll prob do 25 then just because 3 is maybe too low and 6 isn't saving me much money w/ the promotion they have now.

yeah very true. I have 12 right now in NC and it is more than fast enough to run netflix, play COD Black ops on a 4 bar and surf the internet at the same time

I've got 26 and it's plenty and I've had netflix, a baseball game, and a torrent (completely legit of course) running at the same time.

Just 9 more days till I'm in Chicago. I'm probably ordering the first of my furniture and appliances online tonight, and I spent most of yesterday at IKEA price checking everything.

In 3 weeks we start orientation for friggin' law school. I put off law school for years (got my BA in 2009, took the Dec 2010 LSAT), almost didn't apply this cycle (my app to NU was dated 2/10) but this time next month I'll be a 1L.

I may take the cake on the "putting it off" sweepstakes. BA in '04. First diagnostic LSAT in '04. LSAT in June '10. All law school apps out 1/31.
Still don't have housing lined up. Haven't bought my new computer yet. Not sure when I'm moving to Chicago.
Yeah...I'm doing this all the right way.

If it runs by me, I will be the one stealing it. I'm in serious dog withdrawal after returning from a visit home. The O'hara homestead is overrun with adorable dogs, but I dont have one here.

I want to bring my dog but we aren't exactly in walking distance... he's loving the lakeshore drive trails though

CTA website wrote:Pets/animals

Service animals (animals that provide assistance to people with disabilities) are permitted on CTA at all times.

Only small pets in protective carriers are allowed on CTA buses and trains. Carriers cannot take up seats, seating areas or obstruct pathways on buses, trains or in stations and must be able to be carried on by a single person.

To ensure the comfort of others, animals in carriers need to behave in such a way that does not disturb others.

CTA reserves the right to remove from CTA vehicles or property any animals (including service animals) which act aggressively or pose a direct threat to others.

Not if you ever want our advice about anything, ever. :P

This year's grads and rising 3Ls have been very good to us. Don't make us punish you.
