False - Eddie Vedder is god.

Although Backspacer was ehhh, still way better than anything by Lady Gaga, or whoever the kids are listening to now a days.

<3 Bad Romance and Poker Face

Listening to Sonic Youth right now, hopefully that helps establish my rock cred.

H.S. '98/ College '03

Barely caught the disco era (though i've seen a lot of amazing drag impersonations of Donna Summer and Irene Cara), but i was born in time for Thriller.

From my limited experience calling admissions – there seems to be a really nice lady there and another lady who may have just had a bad day the one time I called her. I have been complete since the first week of December 2009 and have not heard from them since. I have respectable numbers that should get me possibly some money at Fordham. I called two weeks ago saying that I have seat deposits due April 1 (which I do) and they said to call back in a week. I called last Monday, they said I am under review and that I should call back Friday. I called Friday – they told me “I need patience” and that I should call back in the middle of this week. Well, holy guacamole – I have not heard from them – I’m starting to get frustrated and am thinking of dropping them altogether, although Fordham night school would be a great fit for what I want to do with a law degree. Any suggestions, similar stories out there? Can I email an assistant dean directly?

there's this one lady there who is like.. bipolar. I asked her a question and she hung up on me. I called her back, asked the same question, and she was super sweet.

You graduated HIGH SCHOOL in '06?

I was several months old. I do feel like my four years out of college makes me infinitely older than the new grads. I relate better to my older colleagues than the younguns. Law school will be interesting

We can start a shuffle board team and talk about Murder She Wrote?


For the record, shuffleboard (on the minature tables, not like on a cruise ship) is actually a lot of fun. We had one in the student center of my high school and I don't want to say I ran the show, but I ran the show.

I played shuffleboard for YEARS at this Hershey Park resort thing my great granddad used to own. Like, let's just say, I was pretty awesome. It was the legit huge court and all the old people used to yell at us to get off their court. Eff that, I dominated those senior citizens.

(I'm graduating college in June, High School class of 2000). If we end up at the same law school we should hang out.

Haha, agreed. Did you try college right after high school and screw it up in spectacular fashion like me as well? I ask because of the discrepancy between LSDAS GPA and degree-granting institution GPA.
