I'm in a somewhat similar situation. I just got accepted to the University of Arizona with a full tuition and fees scholarship, so I am a bit conflicted. Plus one of my best friends live in Tucson haha

I am pretty open on location. As for what I want to do I am also pretty open, and hope to find something that really jumps out at me while in school. I have a background as a business owner, so business/Transaction law seems possible. However, I am not big law or bust I would be fine with public sector or prosecution. I would prefer to live in the Chicago area, but I actually have better connections in Arizona.

Edit: Just realized you may have been talking to Rayag92. My bad!

Illinois hands down if you want Chicago. Only go to Wisconsin if you want to work in Madison or Milwaukee. It totally runs the state, but you need grades to make it even remotely portable. If you're indifferent, Madison is a freaking awesome city.

I made a similar choice and turned down both Arizona and Wisconsin with connections in both states.

Edit: I'm from Illinois originally

Does everyone know where they're living?

Poll for "village, armory, or elsewhere"?

Can someone please clarify the parking situation for me? When I visited the campus in June, I drove by Assembly Hall and saw the big parking lots surrounding it but I wasn't sure where the free lot is in relation to the dome. When I was talking to the dean of admissions, she said that the cheapest nearby lot is E14 ($127/year) which is a shuttle lot west of Assembly Hall and that she didn't know of any free parking nearby. Is the free parking lot you guys were talking about no longer available? If it is still available, can anyone show me where it is on the parking map? I don't want to buy a permit for E14 if the free lot is still there, but I have to figure out what I'm doing soon. Thanks!

I don't think there is free parking nearby. For ASW we were given one day passes to park 'free'.

Assembly Hall has been under construction for the better part of a year. Because of that, parking enforcement hasn't really been checking the part of the lot off 4th St. I have heard rumblings second-hand that the lack of enforcement won't last forever, but I'm not certain. E-14 is on the east side of 1st St across from the stadium. It's about a 10-15 walk that sucks during the winter, but it's not terrible.

If it is still like last year, the entire light blue area around the Basketball stadium was free, and that is where many people parked. Its about a 1-2 block walk to the law building from there and isnt bad. Im not sure if this is changing for this year or not, it may have been due to the construction they are doing in that area.

I live at the village so parking was usually not something I dealt with, but i have used that lot as well as the one in red across the street which you can use the paybyphone app.

Thanks guys, I think I'm gonna take my chances and hope that they aren't enforcing parking in that lot. If they do start enforcing it, is it possible to buy a permit for E14 after the semester starts or are you just out of luck if you don't get it at the beginning of the year?

As far as I know, as long as permits are still available for a particular lot, you can still purchase one.

Unless it's your best school by far, and unless you are ok with a high chance of no job prospects other than shitlaw/ nowhwere'sville

DO NOT go to WI

Anyone here a transfer? Looking at transferring and finding what stats others that have gotten in with hasn't turned up much.
