I guess that's true -- don't park in my EV parking lot. :) But most are 6-4, M-F. Everyone should just read the signs -- and in the garage nearly all are free.

I've never understood why Stanford starts enforcing parking at 6 am. It's not like the cops are out their patrolling at 6; in reality they don't start ticketing until 8. Whatever, better for us I guess.

Residential spaces are enforced 24/7 (two-letter codes like EA, ES, etc). Commuter spaces (A or C) are enforced M-F 6am-4pm. Metered visitor spaces are enforced M-F 8am-4pm, except for a few meters with 24-hour signs. Some spots allow both residential or commuter permits (e.g. "ES or C") and are enforced during commuter hours. Confused yet? :?

I can't tell you how many tickets I got while I was there for UG. I lived on the row and had an SO permit, but by GF lived in the Cowell cluster in an EA lot with 24/7 spots. I think I got like 25-30 tickets probably.

I've had umpteen warnings but only a couple of tickets.

Off topic rant: I once got a "no permit displayed" ticket for parking in an ES lot, with my ES permit displayed on the passenger side. I contacted Parking, which claimed that they don't have time to check both sides of every windshield. If that's the case, then why didn't I get a ticket for the 1 year and 8 months before that? I conclude that either it was a recently hired meter maid, or the Parking department is increasing its efforts to give out tickets. /rant

I hate that the Stanford "police" (they can't reasonably be called real police) refuse to budge on parking tickets. First, my freshman year, tickets were $20; now they're $45-$60 (outrageous). Second, they literally won't allow you to contest tickets. It is such bullshit. I hate those damn cops. They have nothing better to do than troll for parking tickets and it bothers me to no end.

Cops vs. band: who wins the douchery contest? :wink:

Hint, though: if you're extra-nice and respectful to them, they will let you off the hook.

Honestly, it's hard to say. Probably the Band, if only because the cops don't reflect badly on the school itself. But if we're talking negative effect on my life, definitely the pigs.

They are an embarrassment to the school. Yes, some of the shit they do is funny, but when it comes down to it, they are embarrassing. Much of their humor is so esoteric that no one gets it, and they reflect poorly on the University.

Aren't we replaying almost verbatim a discussion from another thread? Off to get the DVR.

I don't "see" them anymore, either, because now I avert my eyes. :P They're either offensive, boring, or both.

Stanford band suspended after shows that included circling the field before a game in a white Ford Bronco with bloody handprints on the door, and a halftime show called "What If David Duke Became President of Stanford?"



Wow. First thing I found in google.

+a lot. The Band people should be flattered that a place like TLS discusses them not once but twice.

And Kronk, they've done much worse things. There's a long description on wiki. Highlights include anti-Catholic and anti-Mormon insults.

I guess that's why Stanford is only junior ivy.

I may overreact to them sometimes because I'm Catholic and take offense at tasteless anti-Catholic insults, but other non-Catholic friends of mine feel the same way (I don't know whether CB is Catholic).

I don't think he's religious. Just me and you. Although I'm actually Protestant, just attend our Catholic church here every so often.

Hmm. If they're truly acting as a municipal government, this would seem like a government denial of a right to due process. :shock:

Question to the Stanford-ites...how strictly do Stanford's adcoms adhere to their policy of not looking at Feb. scores even when they're still considering an app? It seems to me like it would be in their best interest to do so...aka if you're holding a 168/3.9 and they pull a 178, why treat them like a 168?

People got rejected in similar situations last year. Also at NYU, which claims the same policy.
