+We're closer to DC, maybe closer to NYC than UM.
+Our LRAP is pretty good these days
+Seems to me, I sold my soul to a firm so what do I know, but it seems that PILA (public interest law association) is pretty active.
+Weather - seriously, I'm not apologizing here. We've had 3 or 4 perfect, clear, fall days in the last week. In late January.
+UVA sports are on the rise, UM football is in free fall.
+ The schools is very nice and bright. They replaced all the carpeting lately. They're renovating part of it over the summer - though that's mostly administrative space.
+ Social Life. I'll pick a random night, last night, a Thursday like any other. I was unable to hang out with some friends, but I caught up with them drunk in my living room at 1:45 a.m.
My Night - drank in a friends living room while reading Libel Show sketches (add libel show to above list), ran off to class with a really passionate trial ad professor, returned to meeting and slammed down a sixer, laughed my ass off, helped a girl who got her car got "a little" stuck in a ditch. By a little, she meant a lot - it was at a 45 degree angle in the ditch. Luckily even the circus folk at UVA are strong and chiseled, so we pushed it out.
My Friends' Night - ran into our neighbors, had some drinks with them, made some sort of gourmet empanada, went to a party, went to the lawn, saw some people streak the lawn (because it was 55 in mid-January, again) then stole and hid the streakers' clothes, smoked Cigars with Thomas Jefferson's statue. They got wings over to end the night. I quote one of them in saying "memories were made."
+ Has an in at the Ministry of Magic. But, even with that, you can't bank on getting one of those positions.
- The school looks like a keep. It could be stormed at any moment. Do you want to keep Dragonplate armor in your locker? Do you know how heavy that shit is? Do you know how many iron daggers you'll have to smith before you can even think about making dragon plate armor? Do you know how many dragons you'll have to down before you have enough to smith that stuff?
