Exactly. I don't know a better way to do anyhow.

The only problem with this years LSN data being accurate is my LSAT score will be like the 25th percentile :shock:

What are your thoughts on the 1L mentoring program we received information about today via e-mail? Do you all plan to signup?

From the e-mail
The Student Mentor Program matches interested first year students (1Ls) with a second or third year student (2L or 3L) who will serve as a mentor for the Fall Semester. The goal of the program is to help first year students navigate the challenges of the first year by connecting with an upper-level student who can supply information, advice and perspective during the first semester of law school. The program has been very successful in helping first year students adjust more easily to their new environment.

Each mentor is expected to meet with his or her mentee at least twice during the semester, and both mentors and mentees are encouraged to contact each other frequently. In addition, there will be a beginning of the semester social mixer and an end of the semester event (to be determined). Mentors are also available to answer questions and address concerns as they arise.

Wow, nice amenities...BigLaw-esque :wink:



well, i have a mom prone to occasional incidents of extreme paranoia, so having a doorman/secure parking/etc made her happy. she lived in stl for a year or so like 30+ years ago, and imagines everything is still like it was back then.

and after seeing my best friend's pimp apartment in nyc with views of pretty much everything and a sweet roof, now i feel like i can compete just a little bit. looking forward to cocktails on the sun terrace!

Sounds like we have quite a crowd living in the CWE. I have a place in the Carleton Building (frontdoorstl.com) located on Lindell just east of Euclid. I am really looking forward to the 2 block walk to Maryland Plaza.

Citation? While the Chase Park Plaza looks like the building from Ghostbusters I don't think it was actually ever used in the movie.

rezipsa seems to have alot of the foot in mouth disease here. So, here are some pictures of the law school from the outside, because of construction, obviously, I could not get in.

I'm there with you guys. I'm living virtually on the corner of Pershing and Newstead (just off the corner, on Pershing, to be exact), so about a 4-5 block walk to the Plaza for me.

Anyone know much about the Metrolink? From what I understand, it goes on or right near campus and is free for students. Correct me if that's wrong, and does anyone know of a convenient station to get on in the CWE? I'd love to drive as little as possible.

You wouldn't take metrolink, you'd take the bus. That having been said, it's very convenient from CWE and free.
