I just deposited at Northwestern and I feel a little late starting the apartment search. If anyone has tips, let me know!

congrats! i'm actually in the midst of the search right now, too, and it seems like a lot of people are, so don't feel too bad :)

also, i'm heading out to chicago this weekend to apartment search. does anyone know anything about Delaware Place? Found it in this ad: --LinkRemoved-- and I'm curious as to why it's cheaper than everything else if it's right in Streeterville...

I got an apartment! I'm not going to be living near campus, but I'm starting to get really psyched about school and whatnot. :D

Holly, how are you going to commute from there to the school. Is there a bus that is convenient?

Yup, there are 2 buses that go basically straight from the west loop to a few blocks from campus, and a third that's only a little farther. Plus there's always the 8 to the 66. I'm set. :D


Nice, now just get a bus tracker app and you're all set. :)

If anyone is interested in living a little farther from school, let me know. Yesterday I looked at an amazing place by the Chicago blue line that I almost took, and as of now it's still available. The Chicago Ave bus is really frequent during the day and runs 24 hrs.

Did anyone else get the email about the Summer Law Preparatory Program? I'm wondering if any current students have any experience with it and could advise on whether it's worth signing up.

I got it, too. I think I might just go for it. Can't hurt, right?

Got it. Ignoring it. The bloodbath begins August 24. No need to move up the date.


Shit school doesn't start til the 30'th, so I plan to be drunk from aug 24 til the 30th.

Completely agree.


IMO a stiff glass of whiskey and then only beer at the bars.

Also ITT Boo and DF discover how to finish last at law school.

Always, always pregame. Also, I discovered how to do this long ago. It's called attending.


I discovered it by not attending.

I'm torn. On one hand I feel like I should...but this means changing my work and moving date and everything...blah.

I really thought the 23rd meant the 23rd. damn.

Also, NU has sent me that email 3 times now. They must REALLY think I need to prep.

I emailed some current students just to see what they thought and the consensus is that its helpful even if it just gets you in the swing of things. And usually people say not to do prep courses because its a waste of money, but this is free. I think the program has changed a bit in the past 2 years so the itinerary this year may be different from the last.

I did it last year. I would recommend it. The one week you think you might be losing from your summer vacation fun will feel like an ant once you finish your first semester; it's not a lot of time lost in the scheme of things, and there is definite upside. For instance, intro sessions on the U.S. court system and legal system (constitution, statutes, admin, etc), common law 101, a one-day torts class followed by outlining and a mini-law school exam, sessions with rising 2Ls/profs/admin....and you get a nice dinner with the sponsoring firm; it was near the top of the sears tower last year (not sure who's sponsoring now). Obviously, this isn't necessarily the itinerary for this year but it gives you a some idea. Lastly, it is a good way to meet some people early on in a relaxed, low-key kinda way, as opposed to the first day when there are 250 of you there and everyone is already shopping for books and all stressed out.
