do you have to live in a big city or is it something else? for me the lower COL makes it worth not being in a big city, but I also like college towns (though Durham really isn't one, but close enough). that being said, I definitely want to live in a big city after law school.


I lived in a college town the last few years and really hated it honestly, its not a complete dealbreaker but I'd rather avoid somewhere that's not a major city.

This was one of my favorite parts of the weekend. I think I might actually fit in for once.

I lived in a college town for UG and a big city for the last two years.

I love life in a big city but it is so not conducive to studying. I hate having to rely on public transport if I need to study all night or something, there's so much noise and distraction, and it's so expensive.

For the next three years where law school is #1 i would prefer to be in a college town.

Yeah this is fair too, though Hyde Park is pretty walkable and also is pretty easy to keep a car if you're willing to spend the money. I'd love to keep my car but I don't think I can justify the expense.

I feel like Michigan is getting a lot of interest this year. It seems super trendy.

Given the high monthly parking fees in Hyde Park (at least at the popular student housing) + insurance +gas/maintenance costs, it seems that it would actually be more cost effective to just uber places even if you already owned a car.

I actually liked the people at UChicago even though I wasn't expecting to. I also didn't expect to like the campus so much. Now I'm wondering if it might actually be worth the extra cost

How is it on the inside. I know a lot of people don't like the look of the outside of the building?

I liked the inside. Basically the same as most top schools. The outside is meh like many law schools that look way newer than the rest of the campuses they are on

I thought the facilities were on the nicer end of the schools I've seen. NU does have an Xbox and ping pong table in the student lounge in the basement though, and there were a ton of people drinking and chilling there before the play on Friday.

If you had a sizable wedding fund would you, barring the option of investing it elsewhere, spend it on law school?

asking for a friend

And thus begins the next round of TLS drama lol

But hell yes I would spend a sizable wedding fund on law school if it was necessary to avoid loans.

Weddings (not to be confused with marriage) are temporary, JD is forever.

I wish I had one of these mythical savings accounts with money earmarked for something relatively unnecessary to put towards law school. Tell your "friend" that I say spend it now on LS, start saving again once the big checks start rolling in

Just got 105k from Emory. My tiny blackened heart is disintegrating.

Forget what I said about TTT acceptances, I am now in at a top 30 school with a two-thirds scholarship!

This is some shit i would never have expected, going into the application cycle. I feel like I've been given a second chance at academia.

Edit: I still might attend my local TTT on full scholly.

Just stopping by to say I agree with all of the above.
