To get Win 7 Pro, use the regular link. After you sign up, you will get an email to a link. Towards the bottom, it will ask you if you need to join your school's domain and let you get Win 7 Pro

At this price I must admit I am willing to pay for a legit version.

Is the professional version, although you have to ve a student, the exact same professional version as the one you would be paying for?

 Last thing except for BitLocker and multi language support, what is the major difference between Pro and Ultimate?

I was wondering what format the Windows 7 Upgrade download will be. Is it going to be an .ISO? I want to know  because I want to see whether or not I need to buy the back-up disk for $13 or I can just burn the .ISO download.

Hmm, they prompt you for 32bit or 64bit version, I thought the upgrades all included both versions.

Microsoft doesn't care about high schoolers?

Ntldr

It's not that they don't care about high schoolers, it is the fact that College students are more strapped for cash and not only that most high schoolers don't have as much of a need for the computer as a college student would.  High school you are still at home with your parents where as most college students are in the dorms and having to pay for a lot of things on their own depending on their parents views.

Wow, this is pretty cool. After all the money I've spent for school so far, a little helping hand like this is kind of nice.

Most, if not all universities should already have MSDNAA. But you must either be enrolled in a CS, IS, or IT degree, or at least be enrolled in one class in those programs to be able to use MSDNAA. You would need to contact your schools MSDN Academic Alliance Program administrator in order to find out if you are eligible.

Click the link for "Need to join your school's network domain?  Click here!"  It will show Windows 7 Professional is the same price ($29.95) as Windows 7 Home Premium.

Crap, I alread did Home Premium.  I wonder if they'll let me switch... Since they are the same price and all.

I've already got Pro, for free...

 People enrolled in CS or other Engineering majors should check if their school is a member of MSDNAA

According to the FAQ on the Win741 website that is offering the link for the upgrade it states:

Which
edition of Windows 7 can I purchase?

This
offer applies to the Windows 7 Home Premium and Windows 7
Professional editions.

 So, students should be able to get the Windows 7 Professional rather than the Home Premium, unless the FAQ is wrong.

 I have been using Win 7 Pro RTM for the past month, which I acquired from MSDNAA, and it is terrific!

I get it for free through my school

I was going to say, many universities will give the software for free. The only advantage to this I could see would be if it takes a while before universites give it out and you want it right away or they just don't give out software.

Yes, but that license is only for while you are going to THAT university, right?  The offer above isn't actually tied to the university or college at all, and you can continue using it when you are finished I believe.
