Hey folks, if you're thinking about changing your license, don't fret too much. If you go to the DMV license center on Martin Luther King Blvd, near the Walmart, they don't always make you take the written test. I'm not sure if it's a new policy, or if it's just because they're often understaffed and overworked; to be safe, I'd go on a Saturday when there are a billion people there and 2 employees. You might be able to skip the written.

It also gives more details here:

Students who do not have a vehicle when they purchase a permit may enter their Duke Unique ID number in the license information section of the permit order form. When a vehicle and permanent license plate are obtained, students must update vehicle records within 10 business days. Update vehicle information at Manage My Parking Account.

+1 I know I was nervous about it. I set an alarm on my work comp and bought a pass at like 12:05....Wish I didn't have to pay for it through their billing system but whatever.

The billing system is very inconvenient, but I'm glad it costs less than half of my undergrad pass. (Sn: GULC is +$800 / semester :shock: haha)

After paying close to $750/year for the past 6 years for school parking, completing this purchase just made my week. :D

Same, my UG parking was $850+ and you weren't even guarenteed parking. You were given permission to park in the garage, but they would frequently let randos pay to park there for sporting events and concerts downtown and if the lot filled up you were SOL.

What??? I thought mine was insane at $200/semester (which I refused to pay). I just biked to school, and I almost did the same thing w/ Duke :lol: But I figure $150 or whatever for an annual pass is a good deal even if you don't use it every day.

Regarding the fantasy league, we currently have 13 people who are interested. If we get one more, we could do a 14-person league.

If anyone else is interested, don't forget to sign-up:
https://docs.google.com/forms/d/1izDAfBN-c8yXdD5MZEdOTChWAeH9LgNJq5k4WGEpbmI/viewform

If we get enough more responses, perhaps we can do 2 leagues.

Also, if we end up with 14, we can do a league poll on standard or PPR.

In the continuing spirit of appropriating this topic to find concert buddies, if there's anyone else interested in seeing O'Death (alt/gothic country/folk/americana/whatever) in Durham on Wednesday, Nov. 12, hit me up. $10, General Admission, The Pinhook.

Also, I'm firing shots in the best fantasy football team name battle.

I like team names based on one of my best players, so I'll wait to compete with you until after the draft.

I don't move until a week from now, but today I started listening to North Carolina's NPR station. This is starting to feel real.

I think it's the first day of classes, but I cannot find an email or webpage to corroborate that...

Edit: It's certainly not earlier, according to this page:
http://www.law.duke.edu/admis/financial/handbook/sec3

"Loan funds are not available prior to the start of the semester."

The date that I saw on ACES was Aug. 15, but I don't know if that's actually accurate or not.

Oh Right. I still need to submit my picture. Every time a situation like this comes up, I'm always tempted to do something weird, like put a temporary mike tyson style tattoo on my face just to see if they'll print it.
