Yea, hopefully. Especially all these nice TLSers, right Cuse? :wink: Haha, also, I was asking questions on the washu subreddit and I guess they have a WE car that you can rent for like a few bucks an hour with gas and insurance included too. Still have not confirmed whether it is for UG only or not. That would be perfect for grocery shopping on occasion or whatever.[/quote]

Given that Enterprise's HQ are in St. Louis, there is probably a zipcar equivalent available for WashU...I'm just saying.

WUSTL just went from #1 to #4. Pretty frustrating.


Hang in there man! (there are two other schools in addition to Emory!?)

Given how much fun we had armchair lawyering about our potential classmate's C&F issues, I thought I'd post this gem from the archives, from Elizabeth Wurtzel, on Abovethelaw, a few years ago:

"Here’s something far more challenging, from writer-turned-lawyer Elizabeth Wurtzel, who explains:


When I was studying for the bar for the first time in New Haven, in my total frustration, I wrote a parody of a bar exam question, or may be of a Barbri question. I posted it on the Wall at YLS [Yale Law School's list-serv], and I am told that ever since it has been reposted every bar exam season.

I have gotten suggestions that I publish it, and a couple of people have actually attempted to answer it, which is crazy. In any case, do what you want with it.

It is hilarious, and insane, and it will make your head hurt — or explode. Check it out…."

Enjoy!!!

I mean, they're ignoring all my communication.

And I withdrew from GWU because of minimal scholarship today and they emailed me 10 minutes later telling me that they are re-assessing my original scholarship with an extension of my deposit deadline until they come back with a higher offer.

and still UR at Vandy. People with worse numbers have been getting ding letters the past week but I seemed to have survived the onslaught

They've been pretty responsive to me both in speed and quality with questions in the past few days.

Ya no idea I haven't talked to them ever.

whats average cost of rent? would rather have my own apartment but open to a roommate
How hard is it to find an apt.? im coming straight from joburg and want to know if i can find an apartment over the internet or if i have to do this all in person.
do i need a car in st. louis?
im sorry if this sounds ridiculous but ive never actually lived on my own sooooooo this whole moving to a different country/city is intense.



I am going to try to live alone without a car too, at least initially.

If I were you, and you have never lived alone, I would start trying to cook for yourself/your family/your friends as much as you can in the next few months and pay attention to some of the small things your parents do as far as grocery shopping, paying bills, and day to day shit.

I have lived by myself for the past two years (well, my cats are there too) and absolutely love it, and some people do, but really think about it, because I know some that have tried it and complain of getting lonely. But you can always rescue a cute new friend from a shelter! :D


Keep in mind that your friends/classmates are probably gonna be okay with organizing group grocery runs and giving you the occasional ride to the airport and stuff like that


Yea, hopefully. Especially all these nice TLSers, right Cuse? :wink: Haha, also, I was asking questions on the washu subreddit and I guess they have a WE car that you can rent for like a few bucks an hour with gas and insurance included too. Still have not confirmed whether it is for UG only or not. That would be perfect for grocery shopping on occasion or whatever.

The wash U one includes faculty and staff so I would guess Law Students are also included.

Why not just call the office? I would be as aggressive as possible. I called them about about trying to increase my stipend from $200 to $600 for ASD because I live far away. They said no way, but at least I got the response ASAP.

From what I have heard the faculty all voted to redirect their bonuses to increase the scholarship pool. Plus correct me if I'm wrong, but I believe WUSTL has one of the largest endowments in the United States for universities, so I would bet the money keeps coming.
