Georgetown University Law School

This is a sponsored post by Tile, a mobile app that makes it easy find everything that matters.

There are only three weeks left in the semester which means that finals are around the corner. The sense of dread that started last month has been replaced with a study plan and things just might be okay.

One thing that is helping me save time this semester is Tile, a mobile app that uses bluetooth technology to help you locate wallets, keys, and anything else you put it on. I use Tile on my Go Card, which is my student I.D. and something that I spend way too much time looking for.
