:lol:

I can't wait to spend twenty minutes with you two and figure out how to hack our gradeschange the world.

Who all is planning on going to ASW? I have an exam during it so I'm not sure what I'm gonna do :/

I'm sure a UG prof would let you take an exam at another time, but if you can't make it to ASW, the Day in the Life programs are a great time to visit instead.

lol status anxiety is eternal. I wonder how T14 grads feel when they show up to work with Fordham LR types who are probably better lawyers than they are.

UNRELATED: Can anyone familiar with Chicago COL tell me what kind of aid offer from Chicago would be approximately on par with 75k from NYU? Maybe 45k? I'm also trying to account for the tiny tuition difference.

ETA: Also, are there any good falafel places near hyde park? I like falafels.

0L obviously but it definitely seemed like 30k(on the higher end) was the difference when I ran the comparisons between NYU - just factoring in differences in both rent and tuition. You can probably spend half what you would at NYU on rent. Use the Georgetown calculator in the OP to get exact figures. Of course the diff won't be as big if youre like me and want a studio in HP while I would have been happy with roommates at NYU lol

Thanks! 30k difference seems to be around where the decision wouldn't come down to finances anymore. Tough call. And yeah, I also might want a nicer place in HP...

Actually.... yes, I do. :wink: And it is awesome all. Year. Round.


I've always thought Japanese language/culture was cool but turns out like 99% of the people who take those kinda classes in HS/college are weeaboos so I was like NOPE.

Can any current students or 0Ls who know about such things say whether a 1L living in the Lincoln Park area would be isolated?

No. You'll be at the law school a ton anyway, and if you make an effort to go to events like bar review and whatnot, you won't be isolated just because you live up north.

Congrats, first of all!

And to answer your question, check these out:

Where the JD Classes of 2013 / 2014 / 2015 live:
Hyde Park
Chicago (Covers Lincoln Park Area)

(The maps are included in the admitted student package that you will be receiving, so they should be pretty legit.)


Thank you kappycaft1. And another thank you, because you probably helped get me accepted with your advice on interviewing!
