I really don't want to relive my memories of being forced to run a mile in high school and being the slowest person. Even the girl with asthma completed it in less time than me.

ETA: I love mimosas.

I am totally that girl with asthma. Mimosa-crowd is clearly the group for me.

How about chasing buses? /Being late for trains/metro?


There is ALWAYS another train. If not, there's a taxi. Life is too short to be running.

No offense, guys, cause I love me some mimosas, but... that run is at like 8 in the morning. Forgive me, but if I skip the running, I'm sure as hell not getting my butt out of bed to drink at 7:30. I'll be sleeping. Have one for me.

C'mon man, it's basically vacation. Also, the alumni panel is not until 10. We will go around 9.

So, I'm not going to be able to attend one of the ASWs, but after visiting on Monday... I'm about 95% sure that I will have the opportunity to meet many of you in August.

I have it on good authority that one can a smoke a cigar while drinking bourbon in the LC lounge after a rough week of finals.

On a more serious note, great pictures. Makes me want to live in the LC

I was just joking with a friend that I do believe that everyone moves from the cafeteria over to the lounge and consumes a snifter of cognac while smoking cigars.

Ah, what I always dreamed college dorms should look like.
(Obviously Georgetown failed to live up to that.)

Not to burst anyone's bubble but... The inside of the LC (the actual dorm rooms) does NOT live up to the way it looks on the outside (read: white concrete walls, fluorescent lights, kind of like a hospital/prison). That being said, I'm still going to live there, but just a heads up!

Someone posted this in the 1L/2L/3L Questions thread - http://www.law.umich.edu/prospectivestu ... gpage.html

There are pictures of the insides of rooms if you scroll through a bit. They seem like not amazing but pretty standard dorm-y rooms. Nothing too terrible.

1. How big are the average rooms?
2. Disappointing as the shared bathrooms are, how many people share them?
I can't decide if I want to live in LC; it seems to work out a little pricier than other options, but the convenience of having meals prepared for you is unbeatable (but the lack of a kitchen is sad -- how will I make brownies?!)
