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.


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

I committed a terrible sin here, using the word "literally" incorrectly (like Joe Biden). I apologize for this hyperbole. What I meant to say was, "they will allow you to contest them, but I can assure you that you will never win."

Ah. Darn. I had all sorts of hypos spinning in my head. It was like a CivPro exam all over again, and I got excited.

Well, the Supreme Court approves of due process hearings you can never win -- e.g. Hamdi and Hamdan.

Goddamnit. Not sure if this has been posted yet, but I can't remember it, so here:

Trustees also approved tuition hikes for graduate students, ranging from 3.5 percent – for general graduate students, engineers, entering MBAs and continuing medical students – to 5.8 percent for Law School students.

Because we're going to be that much richer than everyone else and better able to repay it? :lol:

There have been two TLS acceptances at SLS in the last month (BioE and anmo). Three on LSN (two URMs).

Nah. Just find a qualifying public interest job that pays you less than $50.000.01 (or whatever the threshold income level is for our class) and work it for 10 years.

Stanford is an excellent school with a discerning eye for character and zing. Michigan, on the other hand, is a TTT in decline.

Is Stanford your top choice of those from which you've heard so far?

Harvard is probably my top choice at the moment, but I'll certainly visit Stanford, and I'm still holding out for Yale.

In other news, water is wet. :lol: The Golden Gate Bridge is very pleasant, too, although I don't know why it's not better lit at night.
