Really??? Let's hang!!! :D And are you looking on craigslist? That's what I did, and it was fast, painless, and I found something really reasonable.

Also, I really did like the LSAT (although LG was more fun than anything for me). With the level of obsession I had in waiting for my score, I kind of burnt myself out on it a bit, but I've been helping some friends study for June and it's not half bad.


We could always form some sort of LSAT tutoring collective, organize it like the mob, and make millions of dollars. Good idea, or great idea?

Yes ma'am! (to both the hanging and the shady search method). Craigslist is how i found my sublet when i was working in the city last summer and it worked out beautifully, but this is VERY short notice so its proving a little more difficult/stressful. But i am determined! Are you just subletting for the summer and then doing dorms?

I'm subletting for the summer while I look for an apartment to move into in August.

I really want some New York pizza right now. You know, those ridiculously huge slices that fill the soul with happiness and boyish glee. Just. Three. More. Months.

I know that this will make me super unpopular, but is anyone else reading through E&Es? I'm just bored (not in school at the moment) - but it would be fun to talk to other people who are engaging in some 0L reading. Message me.

I plan on doing all of my "0L reading" in July/August. Trying to read the material closer to when school starts.

Is this something that people are supposed to do/tend to do?


I figured that I could be lazy this summer in exchange for maybe a week of looking dumb in front of the class :lol:

nobody's supposed to do anything. a lot of people say it helps a lot. a lot of people say it doesn't help a bit. normally, if there's significant evidence that X helps some people (but not all), and X-ing doesn't involve a disproportionate cost, I try X-ing, because there's some chance it will help me. *shrug* that just sounds like good sense...

that said, nobody says that not pre-studying means you will fail out of law school. nobody NEEDS to do it - and i'm sure a majority of people don't do it - but, i'd rather do better than not-better, given that 200K is being sunk into the enterprise. you can ridicule that idea if you want, but whatever - i was simply asking if anyone else was reading the E&Es...

let me say though - if you talk to law school grads reflecting on their law school past - they will tell you about a general trend of people saying that Xing does no good (whatever X is), while at the same time secretly Xing on their own. you can draw your own conclusions from this general trend - i'm just saying you shouldn't be too quick to believe it when someone says that X-ing is pointless.

Rising NYU 2L here, chiming in with anecdotal evidence about the necessity of summer "0L reading".

I didn't do it, and I don't think my performance suffered. In other words, you'll probably be just fine if you do what I did the summer before law school: nothing.

Look - I didn't post earlier in order to start yet another big ol' discussion about 0L reading. I really was just asking if anyone else was doing any 0L reading, lol.

(That said, Forza, i completely agree with you. As I said before, i'm sure people will probably do just fine even if they don't read the summer before.)

I'll be curious to see where those of you who are living off campus end up. My girlfriend and I - who have been living in the city for a few years now - are about to sign a lease for a place near downtown Brooklyn. Good luck to those of you who are still searching! Craigslist can be a pain, but you'll find something if you stick with it.

Regarding 0L reading: I'm going to read Getting to Maybe closer to the start of the semester. A friend of mine who's at HLS suggested reading something about the Supreme Court, like a biography of one of the famous justices. Luckily for me, I picked up a free copy of The Nine by Jeffrey Toobin when I met up with that friend this weekend; she was moving out of her dorm and the outgoing students had left a ton of books behind. Soooooo, I went to Boston with only a small bag but came back hauling 20 pounds of commercial outlines and E&Es. Oh well, if I need them next year I've saved myself some money.

Just finished reading One L.

Enthusiasm for law school is waning.

No more prep work for me this summer.

Yep. I just withdrew. Their offer was to match the one I had already received from NYU, by the way.
