well how about an online tour of Oxford, now that is an amazing campus (btw - never seen it)

I went to st johns for UG and the campus is nice, especially in the spring when you can really enjoy it. However bear in mind , especially the UG, is really a commuter school.

Agreed! This school is perfect for me since I live just a short-drive distance away in Forest Hills. St. John's pleeease take meeee!!! :lol:

Eh to give you a true sense of beauty.

SJU is just a big piece of grass. Once you get passed the great lawn, there really isn't that much else to see.

Eh just trying to give you a sense of the campus since a "drive by" can only tell you so much.

Plus you usually don't leave the law school building if you go to law school there [food is so much better than the UG food and the library is not half bad].

Just because I mentioned driving by the school the other day does not mean that I have never visited the campus before...

Unlike you, I don't make assumptions.

Good luck with St. John's

The campus is nice, let's hope the quality of instruction is just as nice if not nicer. The only problem is that it's not close to any subway stations, so even from where I live in Forest Hills, it'll take me around 40 minutes.

BTW, are any of you guys coming to the Admitted Students Day on March 28? :D

Anyone planning on living in campus owned housing? I think it's a few blocks from the school.

Also, do you think I'd need a car?

If you live in Brooklyn, then you'll def. need a car. If you live in Queens or Manhattan then probably not. I live in Forest Hills, so I'll be taking the train and the bus.

Have you ever tried getting from Brooklyn to Jamaica Estates? Good luck with that...

Needless to say the quality of the UG (as shown by MSFly) is quite low.
BTW soofly, you made assumptions when you suggested she check out the Cornell campus

UG can't be that bad if SJL is a safety and last resort

Correlation =/= causation
It is the second time I've seen you tout the fact that sjl is your safety to people who are happy to go there. This says nothing about sjl or sj ug, and just shows you to be a sad prick.
Lastly, don't your #s alone make sjl a reach for you

I don't understand why someone would shell out the cash for SJ UG when Queens College a few minutes away is just as good (if not better) and costs maybe 1/10 as much, if even.
