My cat is going to be my roomate. I'm thinking of getting her registered as a stress cat by my doctor. That way I can take her anywhere.

I'm thinking about getting a pup


Down to be your roommate if you do. Pups=life

Where y'all going?

more than likely H unless Y quits playing around and lets me be a double dog

What are your top choices?

UVA, Emory, and Mich. Nothing's changed in months lol

ETA: You're down to NU and Mich, no?


Well, if we both decide on Michigan, MAYBE having a roommate doesn't sound like the worst thing - depending on if you're cheap about rent or nah lol. But also, for summer start, you can sublet and I looked over some of the list and they're pretty affordable. Some are kind of pricey though

And yeah. I thought it would be a relief and for awhile I had decided I didn't like Ann Arbor so I didn't want to go to Michigan and would go to NU but then I started thinking about it more and now I'm completely undecided again so... yeah... this is fun lol.

Where do you want to practice? Michigan is always going to be the higher ranked school of the two (if that matters to you), and while both are nationally known and accepted, your COA at Michigan is going to be cheaper overall, with similar employment outcomes.



Will start in BL, hopefully at a top firm, probably for about the average (3 years)... maybe longer if I can hold out lol (because the longer I'm in BL, the more I can pay down loans). Either DC, NYC, or Chicago would probably be fine with me - I like Proskauer Rose in NYC because they're pretty well-known for their sports law stuff. After my few years (or more) in BL, I want to transition into sports law, so I'm probably going to be pretty flexible on location and just go for the job I like most.

Naturally the sports law part of the plan may change. But, BL to help pay down loans will most likely never change lol

in order to specialize in a niche like that, you definitely need the prestige, grades, and network. It sounds like you're leaning more towards NYC than the rest, which if true, M is going to get you there much more than N.

Awesome, I'm glad. I know you were put on some waitlist to lower schools. That's awesome to get into H!

There isn't one. And if there was it would differ for every school since for some an interview is req'd for admission (e.g. HLS) while for others you can get in sans one (CLS).

Anyone considering work study in law school?

I'm trying to figure out if it's feasible for the first year of the law schools I applied to but I'm guessing it's not.

Most law schools either don't let 1Ls work or limit the amount of hours you can work to like... 20 or less.

So far, I've seen about 10 hours required for law students of whatever year, with no explicit mention of 1Ls. I would prefer to work at a firm during the fall/spring semesters of fall and spring than rely on work study, but it's something I was curious about for 1L and as a last resort of a sorts for employment for the summer of 2018.
