Was wondering about the car situation myself. Any idea if there is a website or something that details the shuttle schedule? Does it run to the grocery store and such? I've lived in a major city the past 5 years and had no need for a car/don't want to buy one now...
As for the food situation... are there any decent restaurants specializing in ethnic food, etc.? A quick google search tells me they exist, but wondering about personal experiences?
Seems like the top 10% have a decent shot at biglaw (based on the new NLJ250 info). What do most people say they want to do after graduation - public interest, government, clerk, boutique firms, etc? Are professors helpful in providing career advice?
Not to grocery stores. Some of the places that the shuttle hits are within walking distance of one, though. My experience with the shuttles has been that you're just better off walking. They run twice an hour, take a long route, and make other stops on your way. The 30+ mins you spent on the shuttle and walking to the law building would be better spent just walking the entire distance (unless it is raining or something.)
Most folks just want a job. That's what you'll find at every law school. Some folks have experience/preference for certain areas, but currently the market isn't one that you can really demand stuff in. Numbers on the internet are numbers on the internet. You can be #1 in your class but if you're insufferable you'll go nowhere. You can be last in your class but if you bring experience and personality to the table you'll go far.
What do you mean ethnic, exactly? We've got Malay Chinese, Sushi Thai, Mooney's, a couple of Greek places, Golden India, Nawab, Thai Sawatdee... the list goes on. I think the best food around isn't any of the foreign places... we've got better places with Sweet Potatoes, Willows, and the like. Greensboro is about half an hour away and they've got a larger Asian community so you can find some nice Korean (and other) joints over there.
