I just wish it didn't feel so much like the pic.

Maybe UNLV will jump like 60 slots in the next USNWR rankings and soothe my nerves? :lol:

Going to any law school is a gamble ITE. However, you definitely have some balls in turning down USC for Boyd. I'm not sure if I could have done that. Either way, I'm sure the school is happy to have you, since you are probably the highest LSAT scorer in the c/o 2013.

UNLV has posted up a Facebook page for admitted students here:
http://www.facebook.com/home.php?#!/gro ... 5695946170

It's awfully lonely thus far (only one other cat besides myself is on it). Let's get some more folks signed up!

UNLV it is! Headed down March 26th for the weekend to scope everything out. Setting up facebook soon (ya I'm the only person I know without one) so I can hook into that link along with you guys.

It is down to UNLV and Tulane for me pretty much. I withdrew from most the schools I got accepted to. Is UNLV's april 1st deadline binding?

I will probably put my deposit down on the first, but I won't know if I'm going for sure because I may not have all of my decisions/scholarship offers yet. Davis is slow!

I finally gave into facebook a couple of months ago because of the law school app process. I literally friend-spammed everyone on the c/o 2013 page :D

Nice to meet you David :)

It's only March and I'm psyched to meet everyone 'for real'!

Agreed. I've been lurking around these forums for too long and am looking forward to the ASD in April. I'm moving down from Reno at the beginning of August and it'd be great to know some other students before this whole process gets underway.

Nah, I don't really see a need. I've visited twice and learned enough to make my decision. Without a good offer from Davis, I'm almost certainly attending in the fall. I will go back in July to find a place to live. Hopefully I can find something close to the school.

Hit me up when you come back out, but take a look at Camden Pointe if you want an apartment.

~10-15 minutes from school, straight shot up Trop, ~$700 / mo for a spacious one bedroom with a nice floor plan.

It's the nicest reasonably priced place that's also very close that I found, and I'm only moving out to move back in with my buddy across town.

To be honest, I need a yard for my dogs and a garage for my motorcycles. I'm hoping to find a small house for like 900-1000 a month. Know of any good spots within 15mins of the school?

We're in the same boat. Got a dog that needs a yard. We own a house up here and we're just too damned accustomed to it.

15 minutes might be pushing it, though there could be some decent places around. Most of the problem is that anything east of the school is urban / the strip, north is mostly businesses, and south is the airport.

Spots to Check

Try around the Paradise Valley Country Club, maybe, or else between the 15/215 around Windmill and west toward Green Valley / Green Valley Ranch.

If you don't mind a longer commute, Summerlin is a nice area, but the 15 is a real bitch (constant construction) and so you have to take surface streets. That's fine as long as you don't need to arrive at class such that you need to travel during rush hour.

Your best bet might be splitting a house with some folks, though that's a little dicey if you don't know them ahead of time. In this economy, though, I'm sure places are available.

There are lots more places that are nice, I'm sure, but this is off the top of my head.

As an aside, rock on with the motorcycle. I ride too, virtually year round. If you can get a decent backpack and ride to school, parking is MUCH better, and if you buy a car pass you'll get your MC pass for free.

Free MC pass is awesome! At my UG, you had to buy both passes :cry: If I were to drive my truck, how bad is the parking?
