I got accepted for Fall 2005, and then I deferred so I feel completely out of the loop.  When is the open house in March, is it worth going?  I was planning a visit in February, but I could definitly push it back a month.

The dates are on the admitted student website.  The spring open house in March is the 30th and 31st. As far as "worth going to" it will be, I really don't know. I will be in DC that week anyway, so I'm going to go.

Is anyone else attending the January 26-27 admitted students days?

I'm kind of leaning elsewhere, but thought it might be a good idea to visit Georgetown before making a decision.


I won't be attending the January open house.  I will be going to the one in March.  Anyone else going?

Do you think that an English basement around Eastern Market would be comfortable for two people? I've also been looking at the U Street area.  I've heard that it's changing a lot and that it's becoming a nice neighborhood.

Also, have you heard of any books to read before 1L? I've read a lot of different things - some people say read Planet Law School or Law School Confidential, while others say read as much non-law related stuff because you won't get a chance to read anything for fun during law school and after.

right now i'm in missouri teaching 7th grade spanish.  my fiance is moving to dc for a three month fellowship at ABC news.  she'll be living in adam's morgan while she's there.  i don't think we'll be able to afford living in adam's morgan after we get married in july and move out to dc permanently.

i remember going to some dc united games at RFK and it seemed like a sketchy neighborhood. and isn't waterfront/navy yard in southeast? i'm going to keep my eyes on craig's list for apartment openings.  any other suggestions for where to look at apartment listings?

Illussion18, congrats on getting in.  do you think you'll continue to work full time during the school year? I was thinking about trying to get a job second semester at a government agency or think tank. that's a ways off, so no need to think about it too much right now.

i went to undergrad in dc, but that was almost 4 years ago.  where would you recommend living? i would like to live in the district so that i can sell my car.  any thoughts would be appreciated.

and in the excitement of getting in, i ordered a some books about law school - "law school confidential" and some others. have you read any books that might be helpful for anyone about to enter law school?

I just wanted to get a topic going for incoming 1L's. 

I got in last Thursday (12/8) and withdrew all my other applications.   I called GULC and asked when I would be receiving info on everything (financial aid, registration, etc.). The woman at the admissions office informed me that they will mail information packets out in mid-January. 

I have a friend who's a 1L in the evening program (that's what I'll be doing too). He doesn't work, so he spends his days studying and doing research for a professor and going to lectures and speeches.  He enjoys GULC immensely.  He's taking finals right now, so I haven't been bothering him with too many questions about GULC, yet.  I look forward to hearing more about his first semester during his winter break.

Anyway, I look forward to future 1L's posting their thoughts about the upcoming year.  I would also be interested in hearing what current GULC students have to say about their experiences and any suggestions for ways to prepare for our first year of law school.

Barnes & Noble's website (www.bn.com) can also be a good option - especially if you become a member and get their 10% discount.  It does cost $25 to become a member, but since casebooks and supplements will cost you more than $300-$500/semester, you will save $30-$50/semester, $60-$100/academic year.  www.bn.com has most supplements (outlines and hornbooks) and casebooks, so it can be a good option. 

Other than that, I agree with the others who have said Amazon.

The new MacBooks come standard with glossy screens (it's an option on MBP's).  Is that a good or a bad thing?  Wouldn't the glare on a glossy screen really suck?
