A Non-Comic Related Note of Amusement:

Since I got my LSAT results back (163, if you're curious. :-) Not too bad I think, though my ego likes to think that with more sleep and a decent breakfast I could have done better. :-)) I've gotten a few invitations to apply to a few colleges, which is awesome.

(No guarantee I'll get ACCEPTED of course, but it's definitely been good for my ego.)

The funniest thing I've read all day was from the University of Iowa which included the line:

We consistently place over 70% of our students in places of employment outside the State of Iowa.

Even they know how much their state sucks. :-)**

(**No offense intended to any Iowans out there, naturally. If I got accepted, I'd totally go there. And bitch the whole damn time. I'm like that :-))

    congrats, and good luck - you sure the real world is ready for you afterwards? ^_^

    Ah, I enjoyed Iowa City when I went there. I loved working at the Bijou Theater, and the Hamburg Inn is great fast food restaurant (they have Red Velvet Cake milkshakes!). Plus, Daydreams is a really nice comic shop. So there is a lot to like, even if Coralville has most of the stuff.

    And this is the school that let me do an honors paper on Silent Hill, and had a class that had 24 and Firefly/Serenity on the syllabus, so you can easily write about comics there. :)

    Good luck on the college hunt!

    Heh. Yeah. Sounds like my old, Junior College - which bragged about having the highest precentage of students who moved up to higher universities.

    Which doesn't sound too bad until you realize they were the only college of any sort in 100 square miles and that they only offered two Bachelors programs - Nursing and Welding. So if you wanted to get anything past an Associates, you HAD to go to another college. :)

    Hey, now, IC is awesome, even if we are down to one comic shop now.

    I wonder if that number includes the undergraduates, though. Maybe we just have trouble exporting all of our Interchangeable Brunettes.

    But if you came here I'd have someone else to talk to about comics!

    Congratulations! I must admit that Iowa sounds...um...interesting! But you could probably do worse.

    Come and go to school in New England! Our weather is bizarre, our taxes and gas prices are outrageous and our politicians are mostly bags of wind...but New Haven has incredible pizza, and Boston is kinda pretty.

    Connecticut...our potholes are bigger than your potholes!

    I recently moved to New England. I like trying to describe each state's own distinct terrible driving style.

    Hey, those guys in Massachussets are crazy! I think it's having a rotary in half of the towns.

    What a waste of a perfectly good mind by turning her into a lawyer!
    On the other hand, it's my understanding that upon graduation you gain the ability to either a) turn into a superhumanly strong 7' green version of yourself; or b) have all your senses expanded to superhuman levels (tho' the downside is, you are blind). So, ya know, it's not all bad.
