I'm also in your waiting boat. I'm a little above the GPA median, at the 75% for LSAT score..feeling pretty optimistic. I'm from NY so I kind of thought it'd come earlier in the week than say..Texas. But after that admissions fib, who can say!
While we're waiting here, Boston natives or Boston-savvy people, can you recommend some cheap but good parts of Boston to move to? When I'm not lurking on this site, I like to scout out future apartments, but there are so many little neighborhoods on the Boston map on apartments.com that I don't know which are the safe ones (if that's a big issue?) slash ones close to the school, cool areas, etc. Tips?
hey Zannie. whats cheap for you? i live in cambridge and some areas (towards harvard) are expensive but others, east cambridge, for example, are not as expensive. but then again.. i dont know what you mean by cheap.
I'm not as familiar with the areas right around Northeastern but i'd say these are some good and reasonably close neighborhoods to northeastern:
(but i'm a ny native so 30 min on the T is close in my mind)
some parts of somerville
Boston University area
south end (gets pricey i think)
beacon hill/newbury (pricey!! but beautiful
PM me if you want more details!!
