Like in my case when uploading an exam.

Good luck with the second week of exams, all. Remember, no matter how bad it gets, there's someone out there that hates law school so much they frickin' shot the building last month.

Some of the hardest tests I took were uncurved electives. But they also were supremely generous.

But some uncurved classes are basically curved anyway.

How do I go about applying for an apartment without a source of income? Do I just include info on the balance in my 529 and a note that I'll be attending NU?

Give them your loan info. They've rented to students before, they know you'll be good for it.

Yeah, I included my scholarship letter/financial aid package instead of pay statements.

PSA: Hot Doug's is closing in October. If you're a 0L, make sure to stop in as soon as you move to the city. Everyone else, enjoy as many duck-fat fries as you can before then!

Does anyone have recs for a convenient cheaper hotel near campus? I will be visiting in early June (5/31-6/3), or if anyone is down to let me rent out their apt! I'll even clean it for you, and then we can be buddies when I attend this fall :) my options on airbnb are really sad.

The 0L who asked about living in the suburbs again- does this seem doable for 2L/3L? I'm starting to think maybe do it big and go the ultra-convenience Streeterville route next year and then live at home the next two when I have more control over my schedule. Does this sound reasonable or do the same arguments apply?

It really comes down to you. Do you want to hang and kick it with people from school? If you have friends at home and all that, I could dig it, but you're probably going to make friends at school and being 45 minutes away from anything is rough. I can't really offer much about schoolwork and all that, though.

I live out and the burbs and did for all 3 years. The above is definitely true. It comes down to you/your family etc. I chose to live where I live to have room for my kids that we could't afford by campus. It has certainly impacted my social experience. It's just hard to do things like bar review, weekend activities, etc when it involves a long commute on each end.

anybody live in Pilsen? Is the commute crappy? I commuted about 45 min to undergrad because i loved my neighborhood, but i also didn't spend much time on campus beyond going to class.
