Yeah between the cheapest flights and hotel I could find the trip would cost me about $725 and I have like $750 and bills are due at the end of the month. I thought I had more moniez than that :(

The more I research UVA, the more I'm thinking this is where I want to be next fall. Can't say for sure (depends on the financial side of things), but looking forward to ASW.


Barring an acceptance from UChi? :P (I wish I had that GPA btw).


Escaping Chicago's WL black hole is not likely. Besides, I live in VA now, like the area, and am a fan of UVA's program.

In all likelihood, I probably wish I had your LSAT score, so we are even.

Anyone hear anything about the Jeffersonian Apts yet? I received a waitlist number on Jan. 1 and haven't heard anything since.

On our FB group someone just posted that they said they have much fewer spots opening than they anticipated. I called and said I was high 50s on waitlist and they said I was not likely to get a spot.

I am not looking elsewhere

Looks like I won't be staying with a student during ASW - spots filled up too fast. Anybody have luck?

Just sent an email saying I have to cancel my RSVP to ASW, and sent another turning down an offer to stay with a student. Hopefully the latter helps one of you shelterless peepz out

If you're a girl looking for housing and are interested in an apartment in a safe, great location close to the downtown pedestrian mall, about a 5-10 minute drive from the law school, shoot me a PM.

I believe they do another round in April, I think after the 6th, which is the deadline for current scholarship holders.

Pretty sure UVA is where I'm going to end up! I think I'm deferring for a year though. I'm super excited for ASW! Anyone from Texas going?

Ya I'm afraid that is most likely it. That blows by the way. You can try negotiating if any of the peer schools offer you some money.

Is there any possibility that you can sit out this cycle and retake? (170 and you would be likely looking at some good money).
