I'll be married when I'm a 1L, and my wife will have one more year in her Pharm.D. program, so we'll either stay in this apt (if I go to school in Philly), or I'll dorm for a year while she finishes up.

Dorm living for 1L year, but am looking for a house on Cleveland's west side.  Trying to sell one at the same time.  SO will live in current house and stay at her job until it sells.  Not really looking forward to dorm living (didn't even do it during UG), but it was the most convenient option for me.  I was too lazy to look for an apartment.   :(

I picked a school that's in my hometown so I'll live in the same place I lived when I was working...my boyfriend's house.

I'll be single and managing an existing mortgage on a condo i intend to make a rental property. For my own peace of mind I'll be staying on campus and eating cafe food because i'm afraid of paying for two places at once if i get stiffed by a renter. This is actually a significent factor in where I decide to go.

SO is taking care of the girls--three of them: Pippa, Raisin and Beemer.  Sad news...lost my almost 11-year-old fawn female, Probie, near the end of June.  Her death was totally unexpected.   :'(   I just picked up her ashes from the funeral home last Monday--she joins four other pugs that went to the Rainbow Bridge before her.  Pretty soon my bookcase is going to have more urns on it than books...
