Detroit style pizza is a real thing. Anyone ever have it before? I personally have only had it once before. They usually twice bake the crust and it's similar to sicilian.

This is my preferred style of pizza, but I grew up in Detroit. It's a bit different, but really just a take on the Sicilian. Detroit is more known for their Coney Dogs.

I love coney dogs they are my favorite style of hot dog. Our next poll after this should be on best hot dog styles. And sausages / brats shouldn't count as hot dogs or else they'd always win.

Also I forgot to add earlier:
Wikipedia describes California style pizza as being like New York style only thinner crust and usually having toppings inspired by other Californian cuisine.

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/California-style_pizza

It's definitely it's own style and I like it. But I voted for New Haven style as my favorite. I truthfully like all the pizza styles as long as they are well made. Quality is the most important.

I think people who eat very deep dish pizza are fine using a fork but other than that I agree.

Sadly I haven't played in months even though I get free rounds. Working at a course just makes me not want to play.

I can't vouch for them but saw this on a different thread:

stbullitt wrote:Hey guys,
I’m a summer starter, but I currently work for a small company in DC. The boss of my company recently purchased a couple of HP 640 ProBook G1 laptops and had about ten extra laptops come in his shipment. My boss is currently looking to unload these laptops and recoup his costs. I volunteered to purchase one, as I’ll need a laptop for law school. I also mentioned to him that there will probably be other potential law students interested in getting an underpriced laptop.
The details: it’s a new, standard HP 640 ProBook G1 laptop going for $500. It doesn’t have Microsoft Office, but it has pretty much everything else you need. The Amazon price for this laptop is $829 from them and $767 (http://www.amazon.com/s/ref=nb_sb_noss? ... ProBook+G1) from an independent vendor and a quick Google search made it seem like most other vendors are in that range. This is basically a new laptop for law school at factory cost at a cheaper price than anywhere but EBay, where quality will be sketchy.
After seeing the sublet posts on this thread trying to get you guys to pay 30% above market, I can understand why you guys would be wary of a dude on the Internet trying to pawn off some merch. However, I’m not trying to rip you guys off, I just thought this would be a good opportunity for me to both suck up to my boss by helping him out and help out some law school students who will be poor for the next three years.
I’m not too good with top-law-schools, so you can either PM me or just email me at Stockton.Bullitt@gmail.com. I’m willing to sell to anyone and everyone, so you can invite more people to email me. I have PayPal and Venmo, so payments shouldn’t be a problem.
Let me know as soon as possible because I only have a limited amount of time to brown nose!
Thanks,
Stockton


It seems like a good deal based on their info but I didn't fact check it.

I had to at least attest to the fact that I took the LSAT for the purpose of admission to law school, and this winter is killing me, so I'm just performing my due diligence by trying to figure out a school that would both give me a legitimate reason to move somewhere warm and make me a lawyer for free.


Ah, I see. Well, as other's have said, it would be tricky to get a full ride, especially with the warm stipulation. Here's the mylsn report on the past 4 cycles with 170+ LSAT and 2.8- GPA, http://mylsn.info/j3lwrv/.

It's definitely possible to get into some good schools, but getting a scholarship will be hard and getting a full ride will be really hard. Arizona State seemed to be the highest rated school that was likely to accept, gave a significant scholarship, and was warm. They gave one of the two on there a full tuition scholarship.

There's no reason to buy that computer in my mind. The only difference between that and http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.a ... 6834258331 is a slightly slower CPU and slightly worse GPU. Unless you are planning on playing games (which neither will do well) or doing something intensive like photoshop or video editing then there is no reason to spend the $100 extra.

Alternatively, you can get http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.a ... 0ZX1HP2982 which is basically the same specs as that "$500" laptop for around $475.

I really don't like HP. I think they are overpriced and generally are worse systems. Lenovo has been the best brand I've found, but generally I say that specs/price matter the most, with support reputation breaking ties.

+1 on hating HP. Plastic POS. I had a $1000 hp laptop and it overheated within a month.

Alabama


Tutition for non-residents at Alabama is $120k and the most offered in scholarships on that list is $90k. Arizona Tuition is $125k and offered $120k. I'm not saying Alabama can't or won't offer a good scholarship, but the one's on there are not full rides for anyone who's not a resident.

COSTCO - extra year warranty. On site repairs, walk in to a warehouse exchanges, and a great way to buy frozen fish to eat well while in school and save money...

How do you drill down to see resident / non-resident on the details?

I am always looking at non-res to res scholarships as "soft" or "funny" money, since its going to be for just 1 year, and its nothing out off of their instate rate.

Just bought an "open box" lenovo yesterday at BestBuy for $325

eta: obvs that depends on location, but the point is that you can check area best buys, etc. for "open box"/ clearance items to save money and still retain the in-store purchasing option

That may be true. I didn't consider gaining residence. It depends on the state for that. I know here in Washington that as long as you are in school it is impossible to gain residency. You have to leave school for a year in order to qualify. Whereas in Texas I could qualify as long as my wife got a job and worked a year.

I have a mac air and love it bc it's light and very versatile, the only thing it doesn't have is a CD drive, which in over a year of having it, I have yet to miss it...although there are hardware add-ons to accomplish this if it ever became a necessity

For the price of a new 13" MacBook Air you could buy a PC now, save the $500 and buy a new PC in 2 years. I've considered buying a Mac, but I can't think of a single reason to do it other than the fact that they're a little lighter.

MacBooks are the way to go. Mines going on 5 years old now. That's longer then a lot of marriages nowadays.
