Consider Amtrack from Chi to St Louis if you don't want to rent.

I kinda want to go to ASD again this year to meet people for funsies since it's only like a 20 minute drive for me. I should probably try to not get day drunk again though.

You need to RSVP today, right?


And you should come. I'll be there 8)


Apparently yeah. I tried this evening and the only option was the March ASD.

Email them! They probably still have tons of space.

Boo I'm outta excuses - time to start making arrangements:

Text to SO: Hey wanna come with me to the WUSTL ASD next Friday?

Response: Okay!

...if I can get off work.

E-mail to WUSTL: Guests: 1?

Most ASWs don't allow guests.

Carry on with the FA bit.

I think I got yelled at for this in the actual FA thread a while back because apparently it's weird that I consider FA to be a state of mind more than an actual relationship status or something like that.

I mean, being in future-breakups is totally consistent with the FA life. Carry on.

That diss makes me sad :(

Anyway are those of you going to ASD thinking about staying in town a little longer or leaving straight afterwards? It actually got stupidly warm today all of a sudden but who knows how long it'll last.

What are the better odds - getting biglaw from WUSTL or the weather forecast being accurate?

Are you freaking kidding me?! I'm going to die.

And yes, I'm sticking around. My flight doesn't leave until late Saturday afternoon.

Where's everyone staying?


That seems kind of crazy to me -- like flying to NY and driving to DC because tickets are cheaper. The cost of renting a car or taking a train down plus the 5 extra hours each directions wouldn't be worth it, I don't think.

Car rental is 20$+gas and maybe it's a CA thing but driving is a non-issue for me. I actually would sorta look forward to it haha. I also have an interview at NU the following Monday.

I've done the Chicago/St. Louis drive several times.

55 is a very, very fast 2/2, sometimes 3/3, highway and you need to be comfortable with driving 85-90 in the middle of nowhere in the winter with possible slippery conditions. I wouldn't do it in poor weather under any circumstances. It takes about 4.5 hours from downtown Chicago to WUSTL.


Personally, I'd fly. Between gas and parking the car it'll likely end up evening out.

Maybe not for ASW purposes, given time constraints and it being the dead of winter, but that's not an awful drive at all.

Just throwing it out there, if you can find a similarly priced flight to Bloomington (BMI), it would only be like a 2.5 hr drive to STL.

I'd say given his/her NU interview and the distinct possibility of ice (its going to be SO cold this week), I would consider the train or bus option from Chicago.

Oops, didn't see that. Yeah, this is TCR in that case.

Oh yeah; Megabus may be an option.

Y'all might laugh at this, but the possibility of ice did not occur to me at all. Guess I better look up train and bus prices.
