Woah, wait, since when did school apparel become super gunnery? Damn it, now I gotta throw away all my college tees and sweats aka 95% of my wardrobe.

No way man, school apparel is like band apparel. Its cool to rock it anywhere besides their venues. Rock all the UG you want.

Almost positive I will be here in the fall. Definitely didn't see that coming (didn't interview, wasn't that excited about getting in...though after researching their insane biglaw placement and visiting, LOOOOVE). But MAN, am I getting excited about Chi. And swag. And meeting fellow CA kids.

CLASS OF 2016 WOOOO

There's a million CA kids at NU. You will all find each other immediately when it starts to get below 65 in the fall. :lol: That's what happened to us this year, at least.

Same here. I only applied to Northwestern because of their rankings but after doing some research / visiting the school / falling in love Chicago / comparing the NU students with other law school students / comparing prices at Chi bars to NYC bars I've come to love this school.

I like how you slid cheap beer in there at the very end like it wasn't the most important factor 8)

I got the seat confirmation email! Also I shamelessly applied for that law preview scholarship within 5 minutes of getting the email. Nothing beats free. That's why the Lincoln Park zoo is the best zoo in the world.

hey y'all, it's mid finals so the NU crowd may not be too present, but we're still around if you have questions before depositing/ about moving here! Hopefully your fb group does what ours did and starts setting up happy hours during the summer- it was a great way to make some friends before orientation started. It was nice to have friendly faces around from the first day.

Bro, enjoy your last summer before school starts. Go traveling, relax, hang out with friends back home. Don't be all in a rush to get to LS, it'll happen before you know it.

I know that's good advice, but I'm basically just living paycheck to paycheck anyway, so there's not much traveling or relaxing I can do.
Plus, there's the hassle of finding a place, selling a lot of our junk, getting money somehow to pay for this giant move, and all that, so it would be nice to just *blink* and be done with it in a furnished Chi apt.

I contacted a guy about a listing on padmapper yesterday and he blatantly tried to scam me out of a deposit after immediately learning I was moving from out of state. Would very much like to avoid the headache and just be in Chicago.

+2 in order for me to not break my lease and get screwed when i try to get a place in chicago, it looks like i won't be able to relax/have a real summer before law school starts. i'm living paycheck to paycheck and am now gonna have one miserable summer. damnit.

since i now can't break my lease/can't afford the almost 3k, i can't go from where i am now to socal to chicago. just straight from where i am to chicago. no summer, no fun, all work but still poor as fuck.

I moved a couch and a TV out on to my porch. It has been the best decision I've made this summer so far. Now I can be a couch potato guilt-ish free. Drinking outside during the day is remotely less pathetic than getting day drunk with the curtains drawn.
