+1....would love to do this, but really can't justify going on a several thousand dollar trip when I could get a job as a waiter back at home and at least save a decent amount of cash.

Finish UG ----> play ps3 and become stressed about pending move to new location ----> move to new location ---> dominate my law class mates with 4.0 while simultaneously drinking tons of alcohol and playing tons of PS3 ---> profit

not +1.... while a good argument... traveling is great and you get to see many things/people/places that are different than the states... or you can work and save a couple of extra thousand dollars... and also, when else are you going to have time to travel for 6 months... when you retire ? what if you die before retirement ?

1L here. I traveled abroad for 5 months the year before law school (I would recommend it to anyone). Seriously, relative to your future salaries and the amount of debt most of us are assuming I think it's not really so much money. Right now, you may have time and no money. But in a few years you will likely have money and no time. I'm a huge fan of travel. I hope many of you get to do it a bunch the next half year.

I'm going to read and reread every hornbook and E&E, then buy 5 howling wolf t-shirts so I can wear one each day of the week for the entirety of 1L.

Fuck gunning, I'm going to straight up nuke this bitch.

Continue to slay these chumps on Modern Warfare 2, get my abs, triceps, and pecs in "shirtless" shape, start looking for an apartment, and enjoy my Netflix subscription.

In no particular order.

hahahaha...had to bring up wolf shirt, didn't you?

I'll be teaching in Spain until May and then backpacking Europe for a month before checking back into reality, finding a place in Berkeley, and assuming mind-boggling debt.

I also bought a book on the Berkeley suggested reading list...figured I should do something to at least acknowledge law school while I'm here.

I love this man's logic, if I ran into you at a bar in LA with that mindset (seeing as I share it) we'd probably end up in jail.

work
finish masters
stock up on good wine and scotch
brew at least 4-5 kegs of beer
practice my pastry baking
run a half marathon
remind myself daily how great my wife is for putting up with me
Drink at PX in Alexandria, VA (as many times as financially possible)
Finish reading Proust's "In Search of Lost Time"

I think I can only fit in like 5 of these goals. Looks like work and my masters will suffer.

If I go to law school in NYC: work through the summer until law school to pay my current rent, then quit, find a new (cheaper) appartment with a roommate.

If I go elsewhere: work through the end of June, then quit and move back home for a couple weeks. Then find a new appartment whereever I'm going to school.

I also don't understand the traveling thing. It's something I very much want to do, but I just don't have the money. Even working right now before I start law school, I need that money for when I start law school. Do you all get your rich parents to fund these trips or what?

I took out a $10,000 loan to travel through 14 different countries my junior year. Absolutely worth it!

And no...no moneyz from parents.

I'm living at home this year so I can travel come spring...
