Ok. Well, on that note, I'd like to introduce myself. YLS 1L here.

If you guys have any questions about the law school, feel free to shoot me a PM.

Yeah...ditto.


Come on Bawlmer pride, crabcakes and football, that's what we do!


I second MissCongeniality on lacrosse :) At least if you go to Hopkins.

And I'm sure there are nice parts of Baltimore, I just never see them, because I still haven't figured out where they are. Sad.

North of Coldspring, essentially, between Falls and York. :)

There are *plenty* of nice places in Baltimore - Hampden, Canton, Fells Point, Mount Vernon, Federal Hill. The city's not just the Inner Harbor/Aquarium and The Wire (though I love both of those, too!). :)

Residentially, I'll add Roland Park, Homeland, Guilford, and the Lake Avenue stretch, but there's nothing quite "to do" up here.

Ooo...except walk around and look at the pretty houses and tulips (in the spring). Not bad, in moderation. :)

All right all right you two ;) I actually do know that, it's just easy to forget sometimes--some of those places can be tough to get to without a car.

One of my best friends went to Towson, it's pretty fun around there.

Agreed. Baltimore is an underrated city with several cool neighborhoods. In a lot of ways, I prefer Baltimore to DC.

Baltimore isn't so bad. I was just giving Pausanias some jive. It's far better than my neighbor city, Oakland :?

The problem is that the nice places are separated by wide swaths of sketch. Most are ok during the day, but at night it can be a very bad idea to walk (even in groups). The public transportation system is also pretty bad--so if you don't have a car, or the money to be constantly dropping on a cab, it can be very tough to get around, and actually see the nice places. *shrug* DC, in contrast, has the metro system--which just on that alone puts it way higher than Baltimore in my book.

(sorry, venting several years of frustration here, please ignore me and carry on)

Fair enough. And there are things I like better about DC. As you say, the public transportation system is much better. And DC has nicer parks, better restaurants (though Baltimore has some nice restaurants too), and better law schools. :D

Still, DC is relatively sterile and boring; Baltimore has a lot more character, imo.

All true :) (and you're right--Baltimore does have some fantastic restaurants! :))

Seriously. This thread is just too pure. I especially like how we only talk about Yale-specific issues, such as Baltimore.

Ya don't you bring that over here. This is one thread I know I can look forward to reading. Even when it is about irrelevant stuff.

Don't you know Yale wants to open a satellite campus next to Hopkins?

You pretty much beat me to it. I was going to say something about John Hopkins Law overtaking YLS as #1 next year. John Hopkins Law is definitely in the top three--PJD--of imaginary law schools.

TBF, tomhobbes is not underrated, he just resides almost exclusively in this thread and there are so few regular posters in here that so few people are aware of his genius. In contrast, there are way more people who follow the Harvard thread (where PN often inserts himself :lol: :lol: ) so PN (who I agree is overrated) has a larger audience.

I agree 100 percent. That's why I deleted my post and sent a PM instead.

Above all, you guys -- every single one of you regulars posting in the HLS/YLS threads -- have the best sense of humour. But hey, sometimes we might argue and bicker about the most inane stuff, but in reality, you guys are all hilarious. All of you. Shit, I am gonna miss you guys after this cycle. :(

Even if "we" (as a collective or individually) end up at H/Y, for personal reasons (that I have only disclosed to r6_philly) I will have to defer enrollment by at least a year.

It'd be hilarious if we ended at the same school (tomhobbes leaning 99.9% towards YLS notwithstanding).

Haha I agree, these threads (and all you guys/gals posting) are great.

Also, PN, is that 99.9% with a vinculum, or 99.90%? This question is of utmost importance.
