Nope.

Most of the good state schools require residency for the year before you apply, some the year before you matriculate.

I knew you couldn't qualify for residency at UVA, but I thought Boalt and UCLA would give it to you after a year. Is that not accurate? Admittedly, I haven't really researched it because my GPA is too low for Boalt and I wasn't really interested in UCLA.

On a much more serious topic than housing and tuition, I have a question for the 1Ls. Are there many (organized or pick-up) basketball games among law students? Even though I chose the "beer and softball" school I'm much more of a "beer and basketball" person.

I'm a Zima and tennis kind of guy myself.

I'm guessing it might be a bit rarer amongst law students, but does anyone grapple? It'd be pretty sweet if I could find a bjj partner around my size (165).

Maybe some racquetball and a few gin and tonics to follow?

I'm a hoops person as well. Softball is fun and I played on a team recently for about a year and a half, but I have about 1/20th the ability in that sport as I do at basketball.

There probably won't be a ton of time for pickup games, but I'm sure putting together an IM team won't be too tough.

It's funny, at my UG school the school of optometry fielded a team named the "Fighting Iris" for every sport and was always awesome at flag football.

BJJ = Brazilian Jiu Jitsu

It's a submission martial art.

Since I'm 0L and have not met him, I'm not sure how the Senior Assistant Dean pronounces it, but the typical pronunciation is True-hee-yo. I also knew someone that went by True-hill-o

I met him a couple of days ago, it's the first pronunciation: True-hee-yo. Nice guy. He, Jason Dugas and Cordel Faulk are all Class of 2001, Faulk and Dugas were even in the same small section of 30 people. Now they're doing all the admitting.

As Stringer said, it's the common abbreviation for Brazilian jiu jitsu. I wrestled in HS too, and in college I transitioned over to bjj. I'm not terribly good at it, but my wrestling background helps a lot. If you're interested, there are a few schools in the area and I'm thinking about giving it a whirl when I'm in town.

Why the eyes? I visited this past week, trying to get a feel for the campus and the students. Loved it, had a great time in Charlottesville, and could definitely see myself next year.

Barring an admit at SLS, Yale or Chicago, I think I'll be at one of UVA or Michigan next year.

:) I thought the eyes were cute. It's like wearing glasses.
Congrats on the acceptance. I'm actually leaning more towards UVA next year.
