lol is this someone in your class?

I see this "I'll just live with mom and dad!" sentiment constantly on this website, and I just wanted to inform all prospective law students that it's crazy talk.


Why is this crazy talk? I won't be living at home, but if living at home and saving $10k/yr means that you won't have to move back in with your folks after you graduate, then I say go for it. Imagine not having to pay back that extra $30k or so. Check your ego at the door. I love the douchebaggery that runs rampant on this website, especially when it comes from people in their early twenties who have never had a real job in their entire lives.

I get along with my parents too well to live with them.

As much as I hate to admit it, they want to bang to. Plus the thought of making them pay, or feel obligated to pay for, my living expenses and food on a regular basis makes me feel horrible. They did more than enough getting me here.

I could see going either way. It probably depends on the person and the parents.

There's no possible way you're this stupid.

Also, I had no idea there was such a strong contingent of people on here who supported continuing adolescence into one's mid-20s even after you have the means not to.

Living with parents =/= continued adolescence.

I'll take that bet.

Also, lol at the person who said he could save a ton of money on food staying with the folks. Unless you're a huge moocher you should save exactly $0 on food living at home. Carry your weight.

If you're going to a crap law school in a city where your parents live, and you don't have a full ride, you'd be an idiot NOT to live with your parents. Law school isn't about being the cool kid in class, hosting parties, or bringing home strange. It's about getting a good job - BigLaw, basically - and minimizing debt, and then GTFO.

I would have had no problem living with my parents if there had been a T14 in my hometown. Sorry if your parents aren't as credited.

pooling resources with family does not equal continuing adolescence you idiot. Some people continue adolescence from 1000 miles away by calling mommy to ask permission to cross the street. Some people live with family to save money. You sound retarded right now and your responses are only digging you deeper.

You really are mad about this topic, bro. I'm guessing either your parents suck or you have a younger sibling who takes advantage of them to what you consider an unacceptable degree. Amirite?

I mean, I'd feel bad bumming rent-free off my parents for 3 years of my mid-20s,but if your parents are cool with that and you could tolerate living with them for another 3 years then more power to you, even though I can't understand it myself.

I mean I guess if you don't get the guest house it might be rough but even then it is passable as long as you avoid the wings that your parents or siblings like to occupy.

No, bro, you totally shouldn't live in your parents' 5 bedroom house to help take care of them, you should go rent a small expensive apartment in the citeh and pay extra utility bills and be totally independent and free and grown up and urban. Let your parents live alone and miss you, and let your mom's chicken pot pies go uneaten. To do otherwise would be so immature and weak of you.

Rent: 550
Electricity: 45 (summer)
Food: 400
Water: 9.00
Cable: 35
Total: 1039.

Not being interrupted/annoyed by your parents...
Not having to tell a girl to be quiet because your mom is in the next room..
Priceless.


And i agree that living away from home doesn't make you an adult. Freshman year a kid on my floor made his parents drive two hours to do his laundry each weekend.

You keep trying to make this about my parents but I'm not going to indulge your weird obsession with proving I somehow have a shitty family life.

For real do your parents ever interrupt you? No they don't. Also, making normal sex sounds isn't a problem. Otherwise you would have heard your dad hitting the walls your entire childhood.That is a made up worry.

Lots of normal people would prefer not to live with their parents. But in my experience, the only people who get really judgey about others' close relationships or living with their parents (like, to the point of making a thread about it) are those who have bad relationships with family.

There's nothing weird about you not wanting to live with your parents. There's a lot weird with you caring about whether anyone else does.
