    Just ordered it from Digital River for $30! Being a student is so awesome sometimes!
    I didn't realize I could get Pro for the same price as Home Premium. I don't know if my school uses a domain or not, so I just said yes (can't beat a free upgrade :D)
    Downloading now, I'll install it this evening and get some screenshots/initial impressions of it.

    Did you just have to send them your schools email address?

    Yep, I gave them my UNC email address, I had to click on a link they sent to it, they didn't even ask for further verification :D

    I thought it was Home Premium only, I think I'm gonna get Pro

    Any idea if you can download more than once? (paying more than once obviously) or is it limited to 1 download per user?
