Living with other 1Ls or another major?

Postby Marie34 » Tue Jun 12, 2012 8:46 am

Hey everyone! I know there has been questions on whether 1Ls should live with a roommate or solo. I like having people around so I already decided that I do want to have a roommate, but now I'm trying to decide on whether I want to live with other law students or incoming students of another graduate study. I can understand having a law student in order to help with studying/complaining etc. but then again, it might be nice to have someone around that isnt associated with law for a break. Any thoughts?

Make your decision based on the person and their attributes (clean/dirty, loud/quiet, nice/mean, gf or bf attached at the hip/single, smoking and drinking preference, etc), not their major.

Although, I personally like the idea of living with other law students. My roomie next year will also be a 1L , and he seems very studious, so I think it will help keep me grounded.

I'd rather live with a non-law student. My future roommate is a friend from college who will begin working instead of pursuing another degree, but she totally understands the rigors of law school and that I likely won't have much free time, especially during 1L. I like the idea of coming home to talk about things other than law school. That's just me, though.

But as the above poster mentioned, I think the type of person is more important. Hygiene, sleeping habits, social life, etc. are all likely to drive you insane regardless of what they're doing with their life.

I lived with another 1L this past year and found it really pleasant. But again, it depends more on the person than the class designation. My roommate situation was so good because my roommate is an awesome guy. There are some 1Ls at every school that you wouldn't want to live with ever.
