So, how big are the laptops? I'm about to buy a bag, but I want to make sure my laptop will fit.

Thanks in advance.

Uhmmm... if you get it standard size, you should be okay, I would think. I graduated in 2006 with a Spring 2003 laptop (black, not the silver). I would think that you will be getting a silver one as your loaner for your first three semesters... and they will be the same size. However, your "keeper" should be a wide-screen or whatever is top of the line at the time. The ones that my sophomore friends got in Spring 2006 were SWEET AS laptops, I was SOOOO jealous.

They give you a laptop bag when you get your laptop, or at least, they used to. I bought a backpack that had a laptop pouch in the back portion and it fits mine snugly. If at all possible, wait until you get your keeper before you purchase a personal laptop bag... or you can just get one of the $200 American Tourister leather bags (that's what I have now--Garage Sale, $10, woo hoo!) that will last you for about 30 years.

Anyway, I think you should just sit tight and wait and see what they give you. You should save your money for emergency trips off campus for a movie break in real civilization (Richmond Mall or Lexington's Hamburg).

Congrats on getting into Berea. Only about 400 people in the world can say that they got into the school for the Fall of 2007, so you are in an elite group. Never forget it. It's easy to take Berea for granted when you're there--you learn to appreciate it the day after you graduate.

Oh, that's exciting. Okay, I'll hold off on buying a bag, I suppose.

Thank you for everything. :)

Looking back, I'm wondering if you are enjoying your time at Berea?

Sorry, I can't answer that question... maybe someone else on here can. I graduated 2 years ago.
