Oh god you have no idea. Die hard Cardinals fan here. I had to include a line in my budget for next year for Cardinals games (my own money, of course... not WUSTL's :D )
:lol: At least the metrolink to the games is gonna be free!

We could probably get tickets for $10-15 per person and sit together in the bleachers. They're both night games at 7:15 against the Brewers. Afterwards, I'd say a trip down to Laclede's Landing to the bars or the casino may be in order. :D

I know we still have plenty of time, but I'd like to get a head count so I know about how many tickets we'd need. If you're interested, just respond in the thread or shoot me a PM. I'll see how many people are interested and I'll order the tickets sometime July.


That sounds so fun! I'm in for 1.


+1. :)

Keep me posted on ticket price

Wow, great response! It looks like with fees and all that, it will be around $20 for tickets. But I'd imagine more people will dump their tickets the closer we get to the game, so maybe we can get them for $15 or so. If we get a REALLY big group, maybe we can try to get a group rate with the Cardinals. We could even have them do a shoutout on the jumbotron or something... "The St. Louis Cardinals Welcome the Washington University School of Law Class of 2013!

Hopefully we get a big group of people!

Anybody know if there's a parking pass we can buy to park near the law school? I'm seeing parking available but not one right by the law school.

#83 (Snow Way Garage) and #82 (Millbrook Garage) on this parking map are right by the law school. --LinkRemoved-- (warning a 3+ mb file). You can essentially park anywhere on campus that calls for a YELLOW parking permit with a student parking pass. The two garages I pointed out are where most of the law students park.

looks like a few of you are considering living at looplofts next year. I stayed there during 1L and renewed my lease for next year. Although the area north of delmar looks really rough, i haven't had any problems. The looplofts area, including parking, is gated with card entry. As long as you are cautious (walk in groups at night etc.) you will be fine.

The apartments are very nice and spacious and with all the utilities and parking included, it isn't really all that expensive. Plus the internet there is awesome. There were about 20 or so 1Ls living in the looplofts last year

The parking pass costs about $475 (IIRC) for the year and there are 2 parking lots right next to the school

Since I have had a few responses via PM I think I should elaborate on my scholarship increase post. First of all, I was accepted several months ago and am a splitter so I didn't get much to begin with (7k). I felt like everyone around here who is also a splitter was getting roughly 10k. So I emailed and told them that I would appreciate a reevaluation of my file and consideration for a 3k/year scholarship increase. I basically told them that even that small increase would cement my matriculation at Wash U, instead of accepting other offers that were still on the table. They responded quickly and agreed to this small increase.

Note: I did not mention that others were getting more than me or anything like that. I think they would quickly deny any email complaining about fairness.

I loved Park 44! I didn't see the studios but the one bedrooms were gorgeous duplex/lofts that have either a patio or a balcony. The one bedrooms were 700 or 800 (the more expensive had 1 1/2 bath) and I think everything except for cable is included. All the apartments are updated and they have guaranteed parking which is great.

The Towne House apartments were also really nice but they have a waitlist for a parking spot, so if you're bringing a car you'd have to street park for a few months. The studios there were huge! They also have a doorman, pool, and are setting up a nicer fitness center. I can't remember how much they cost but I think they were around the same as Park 44.



For those still looking, I was calling around today and Park 44 will not have any one bedrooms available until September but they do have studios open.

"interesting" as in please call us back in the next few days because we'd like to talk to you about your interest in attending ND. IDK what it means...

After a lot of hesitation, yep. I'm pretty stoked about it, too. I think I can ultimately do the things I want to do in law through WUSTL.

I don't want to get your hopes up, but calls like that usually mean they're ready to admit you.

Notre Dame's a great school, but I'd be bored to death in South Bend, and I can't take the religious influence on campus. They all say it's kept to a minimum, but it's not. I've been there many times...one of my best friends went there for undergrad. I'm very glad I'll be living in a big city with night clubs, a professional baseball team, a symphony orchestra, zoos, museums, restaurants, etc. I won't be going out much, but when I do, it will be for something fun.

But if you're a big sports fan and you don't mind the religion, it may not be a bad choice. The one thing that does rock about Notre Dame are their sports teams.

All credited. I would gouge my eyes out at a Catholic school in Souttth Bend.

Except I'm a practicing Catholic, and I take my faith seriously. I'd actually enjoy the religious aspect of it. One thing against ND is that I'm a Spartan fan!!! And it's only a 2.5 hour drive from my family. But south bend sucks and so does Rudy, so who knows, IDK I have a big decision to make.

Lol! Rudy is one of my favorite movies. Real talk, it's brought me close to tears . . . and I ain't 'fraid to admit it.

I don't know much about Notre Dame as a school. Good luck making a choice!

I went to South Bend in Feb to visit the school and I couldn't wait to get the hell out the the city. It was very ugly, grey, and off-putting. I immediately knew there was no way I could live there for 3 years. I have never been to Saint Louis but I have heard good things and i'm really excited to get to go to school in a real city.
