I will starting 1L at Catholic in the fall and need roommates badly to keep cost down.  I am 23, from Chicago, straight, male, and generally normal.  I want to ideally live off the Red Line in the district, Tacoma Park, or NOVA; just so the commute is no longer than 30 minutes a day.

If anyone at the six local law schools is interested please send me a message or shoot me an e-mail


P.S. I can spend no more than 700 dollars a month on rent and utilities.

All right, I'm in search of roommates or people who need a roommate in the DC area starting Aug. 1st.  I'm 23, single, male, straight, from Chicago, and will be starting 1L in the fall.  I want to spend between 4-6 hundred dollars a month excluding utilities and would prefer to be in DC or Tacoma Park.  Any takers?

By the by, I am coming to DC July 8-12 to look for rooms so I could help on that four day window.

That's a good question.  IS there some sort of bar not to go over?

It is impractical to live downtown, the el takes you right to school.  Search the pre-law board for posts, there are a slew of them regarding Chicago housing.

I am definitely in sync with your line of thinking; unfortunately, I believe the majority of law students go in to law school thinking the same way but end up in a different career path by education.  I guess the true challenge will be to stay true to your initial beliefs.

Agreed.  It really comes down to where you want to liva and practice after you graduate from law school.  As a fellow recent U of I grad, I can see where this dilemma comes from choosing between Chicago and East Coast; proximity to people you know already or starting over from scratch in a new place.  Visit both schools and hopefully this will clarify the situation slightly.

That seems to be atypical but I'm also curious as to what school it is.

I also sent a short letter with my check.  They sent an e-mail three days later saying they recieved my seat deposit and where looking forward to me attending blah, blah, blah.

What's this about no graduate housing?  I was kinda planning on living in the dorms for the first semester, now I have to find roommates with either
a) law students who I don't know; potential assholes or
b) strangers I don't know; potential loud assholes.

I wasn't mocking you or anything, sorry.  I was talking about how you spelled Lenin/Lennon's name.
