Seeing as this is my first post, I can't offer up a TLS-curriculum-vitae of undeniable awesomeness like the entourage of the current NU students on this site. But I'd say their awesomeness bodes mighty well for all of us up-and-comers!

I'm not sure I'm awesome, but you'll just have to deal with it typo. ;)

Also, I've lived in Chicago for 10 years if anyone has questions about moving here etc.

I'm detecting a general trend of humility. not something I expected of future lawyers.

Wait a couple years. Law school seems to have a magical effort on people's ego's. And not in a good way. Of course it won't happen to me.

Hi guys!

So, when I visited everyone was telling me I should live by myself because I don't want to risk having a shitty roommate and potentially hurting my 1L performance, but...one bedroom apartments in the Streeterville area are really expensive. What are you all considering for housing?

not sure. i'll have a female tagging along with me, so she'll be working. don't know if that means I'll need a car. was planning on living close to campus. the money difference doesn't seem like much compared to the immense annoyance of having to commute to class for 3 years.

I already live in Old Town and will probably be staying here, but if I were moving from out of town (sans husband), I'd probably get a studio or one-bedroom within walking distance of the school. The convenience would be very much worth it. Plus the area around the law school has a lot of amenities--there's a grocery store, a drug store, Starbucks, Navy Pier in case you need a Ferris wheel ride between classes--so I'd assume a car wouldn't really be necessary. Parking in Streeterville is a major bitch.

That's annoying. I was hoping the opposite would happen - i.e., the arrogant young punks I met at various ASWs would get their asses kicked by actual law classes enough to realize that they were not actually God's gift to academia.

Yeah, I keep forgetting to exclude NU from my blanket "ASW kids incoming law students grrr" posts.
