Most people at least know of TLS, and many lurk to varying degrees. We megaposters are still a rare breed. I'm pretty sure everybody knows Reg, but that's his own fault :P

Anyone else?


Pretty much same here. I LOVED the visit and it cleared up any concerns about the over competitiveness I had heard about (and those big law placement statistics though)

Same! Really loved the ASW! I'm hoping they pull through with my scholarship reconsideration because I'd really love to attend.

Didn't get to as much as the ASW as I would have liked, but I did like what little I saw.

Chicago is a definite possibility for me--especially given current offers :?

Is anyone thinking about living in the Shoreland?

The Shoreland was absolutely gorgeous. And if you split a cheaper 2B2B, it's not unreasonably expensive. The only reservation I have is that Regents is more conducive to socializing/studying with other 1Ls.

+1

Loved the outside of the building and the lobby. Underwhelmed by the gym (a lot better at Regents IMO) and I like that Regents has grocery store/coffee shop. If I enroll, I think I would go with Regents just because there's more at my disposal in the event that I am too miserably cold to brave the outdoors...although I found the Shining-esque vibe of Shoreland others referred to as kind of awesome.

Word of warning. DO NOT buy perishable food from the Regents market. I'm even nervous when I have to buy shit that can't go bad. It's not a very well run establishment.

Hey guys,

It's been fun, but there will be at least one Rubenstein coming to somebody else in the near future as I officially withdrew today. Best of luck to all of you! Chicago will be awesome and it was a super tough decision for me to make. ETA: There's another spot in Doctoroff now too, if that was a zero sum game.

I hope it goes to another TLSer. :D

Sent in my commitment form today and withdrew from the rest of the schools I was hanging on town. Now I just need to remember to mail the check when I get home...

I'm excited to meet all of you next year!

kappycaft1 does but I don't think there are more than a couple of other law students there currently.

I think I'm going to live there (Shoreland). It is only the 2nd year its been open and I'm hoping that quite a few 0Ls were impressed by the tour and will opt to live there next year. The in-Unit washer and dryer and brand new kitchens won me over.

Anything else particularly impress you about Shoreland (I didn't make it to the tour)? I really like the look of the place, but I haven't convince myself that it is worth the extra $ and loss of Regent's social benefits.

Just consider Regents Mart of whatever it's called like a gas station convenience store and you'll have the right idea, 0Ls.

You missed a golden opportunity to be an obnoxious law student here. But professor, is a tricycle really a vehicle? Where do you draw the line???

People need to learn to move to the back of the 171. The back door is not the back.

Your stop is on 55th? :lol:

I think there have been 2 days that I didn't get a seat this year, and I was still lucky on those shitcan weather errybody riding the bus + delays days just to get on the bus at all.

Whenever I'm running late I have to make a gamble on whether to walk and be a few minutes late for class, or wait for the bus. If I wait and get it I'll be on time, but if people are crowding the front the bus driver will just drive straight past me and I'll be even later. It's a struggle.
