Thanks! I was notified via e-mail. They said that they were in the process of re-evaluating waitlist candidates, so hopefully you'll hear something soon!

For those of you who are heading to Catholic this fall or current students, I was wondering where most people live? I'd preferably like to live in Arlington, but I'm not sure how easy the commute would be (I think around 20-30 minutes overall?). I'm open to any suggestions for D.C. neighborhoods as well.

Also, is there any way to find roommates through the school or are we supposed to do that on our own?

Thanks!

It depends on what you are looking for and how you want to commute. Wether you metro or drive, 20-30 minutes is a really low estimate for commuting in from Arlington. If you are younger or jkust like going out and socializing I would look at the Ballston and Clarendon areas. They are metro accessible and there is a decent amount of restraunts, bars, and shopping. Crystal City and Pentagon City are nice but a bit quieter.

If you want to live in the District, I would suggest staying on the Red Line because it will really help with the commute. I live on the Hill and love it, but downtown/Chinatown isreally nice (though pricier), DuPont Circle and Woodley Park are also nice areas that are metro accessible.

If you want to talk more, PM me.

I am currently working on it. I am under the impression that it is available to all in-coming students.

Agreed. I just got in off the waitlist on 6/8 and I too received the email about the scholarship opportunity.

I just got off the waitlist about a week ago as well for the FT program. Did they tell you how to go about everything this late in the game? (financial aid, housing, etc.)

I'm looking for a roommate to live in Arlington/NoVa -- let me know if you or any other law students you know are interested!

Hey everyone I need your help. I'm having a really hard time finding an apartment. If you have any suggestions I'd really appreciate it!

Did anyone else submit an essay for the O'Brien scholarship?? Just got confirmation that they received my essay... they said they'll be awarding the scholarship in the next two weeks.

I just got off of the wait list yesterday. :shock: Thank you Jesus. And thank you TLS family for all the forums and advice over the past 2 years. Its been a rough road, but it has paid off.
