As an aside, Ruxin and Kevin from FX's "The League" are both lawyers and Northwestern alumni so, like, I'm sure that this is hugely significant in some way.

Did they say Kevin went there too? I know Ruxin said he did. And I say we after party at Gibson's as soon as the draft is done


Yeah, I assumed that Ruxin and Kevin went to the same school but I guess that's a pretty wild assumption. Plus... Kevin has a copy of "Law School for Dummies" in his garage so I certainly hope he didn't go to Northwestern now that I think about it.

FYI, the Sports Law Society has various fantasy sports league for all students. This year there were three separate fantasy football leagues, one which was 1L's only, a number of fantasy baseball leagues, and a march madness bracket competition. Feel free to start your own league, but also know that the Sports Law Society will be having fantasy football leagues

50 is cool. I also think keeper league is a good idea since we're all here for 3 years.

Lets do 50, I have the next couple months to learn how to do this thing, but I'll most likely be a donater. I never joined a frat, is this how it feels to pay for friendship?

I'd be down for a keeper league. I've never actually done one but I like the idea. I think $50 would be the best for keeping everyone motivated.

Is the payout after all 3 years or is it $50 per year? And what's the payout? 1st-50% 2nd-30% 3rd-20%?

Each year is separate, and we can figure out the breakdown after we know how many people we have.

On that topic, what size league do we want? I like 12 or 10, I'm not really a fan of 8 or 14

What is this 'photoshop' you speak of. . .do they sell pictures of the Powerpuff girls? I need a couple of Buttercup posters for my apartment.

I considered it. But I made him lol irl. Maybe that means nothing to you, but it means something to me. You don't just take that away from someone. Irl lols are special, ever-fleeting things.

Not to change the subject, but my girlfriend and I had an appointment to meet a rep from Student Space this Thursday morning, and after we emailed him today to confirm time/place he said that he'd switched companies to Luxury Living Chicago. Has anyone had this experience? It feels sketchy, and his new company doesn't have anything in our price range, even though our rep already knows our price range. Anyone have any input or any comparable experience? I'm certainly not committed to working with Student Space, but they were recommended by the Law School, and that's pretty much all I had to go on. Thoughts?

That does seem sketchy. Any reason he can't show you the same places? Maybe I don't know hot this works but does student space and the other sites have exclusive access to certain apartments? I doubt it. Stay firm to your price range or dump him and look elsewhere i suppose.

Followed up with the president of Student Space who said the parting was on good terms, and that he will be showing me the same apartments he would've shown me had he stayed at Student Space, so I think its probably fine. Definitely weird, though.
