ohhh

that's much safer. you don't have to worry about potential employers who may check your fbook page to see what's on it haha

on another note, you're one of the few people i know without it!

Yes. I've rejected A LOT of potential legal assistants/file clerks on the basis of their facebook profiles.
Frat boy at Hooters pics = rejected
Stupid quotes = rejected
Drug references = rejected

I actually don't know yet. I don't know if my partner is moving with me yet (we live together). If so, then off campus. If not, then something comparatively cheap-ish would be preferable.

I'm hoping for a studio. Its been 6 years since I've had a roommate and really don't think I can go back. Are there options besides Lenfest or Lionsgate?

im mulling moving in with some friends on w104th street, about 10-12 blocks from CLS. gonna have to really think hard, and I plan on going up there next weekend and walking from their apartment to CLS just to see how the distance is. the price is actually cheaper than the dorm, and the lease is more flexible.

Agreed. I haven't had a real roommate since I was a freshman in UG... 5 years?

i'll be attending CLS next fall too! Only I'm coming from a place a bit further away than the rest of you: Lebanon :)
When do you think we'll see the next wave of EDs?

I was an expat. I don't think it's that weird. I think Columbia seems to like having an international flavor.

I hope you're right. Should bring together an interesting group of people.

I'd say that from this board alone I'm already interested in the incoming class. It seems like a good bunch to me. Btw, I don't know what service branch you were in, but my little brother told me yesterday he was seriously thinking about joining the AF. I'm scared for him!

I'm Navy. The AF treats its people very well, probably the best of all the services, but it really depends on what he wants to do. PM me anytime if you have specific questions.

to those who haven't answered, where's everyone planning on living?


I have some friends applying to the Fu Engineering School, if they get in I'll probably share an apartment otherwise a studio from University Housing, Lenfest or Lionsgate might seem like a good idea for 1L... unsure though...

I've been on a two-year deferral to CLS, and am joining the Class of 2013. I just created a FB group a few moments ago - request to join :-)

you were deferred, it means they could not accept you ED but nevertheless saw something they liked and don't want to reject you outright. I believe deferred applicants (from ED) are among the last to receive a decision in the overall process, so you may have to wait until April/May for an answer.
