I also have a car but only use it about once a week. Going to Wegmans is probably a pain without a car, but people usually take their friends with them when they go. I've given lots of people rides to Wegmans this year. One of the good things about Cornell is the great sense of community you get here. There's one or two gunners, but outside of class even they are nice and noncompetitive.

Just to throw a couple of sentences about living in Ithaca. As a 1L this year I have been living in Hughes Hall. Despite what some people say, it is not too bad over here. I live in a "suite" with two other guys. We each have our own rooms, but we share one bathroom (although so far haven't had any problems with that).

Now as for apartments, I will be living in the Valentine Apartments next year, which is about 10-15 minutes walking from school. They provide a morning shuttle every 20 minutes but you'd have to walk back. I got a one bedroom for $745, but it does not include electricity (and hence no heating is paid for). The electric company here can charge you a flat rate per month which comes to $110 for my apartment. So, my rent next year will be $855 including everything (internet, parking, etc were included in the rent). The real estate agency that gives out these apartments (many apartments available until classes start) is named Novarr-Mackesey. Anyway, do not worry about housing. You can find something the day before classes begin if you want to. You can just take a walk around and ask any of the houses you see about whether they are renting out apartments. They mostly are. Good luck!

Law School Admissions / Re: 170/3.86 Where do I have a shot?

Out-> HYS

Chances if you ED:
Columbia (30% accepted, 65% reserved, 5% rejected)
NYU (50% accepted, 45% waitlisted, 5% rejected)
Chicago (45% accepted, 50% waitlisted, 5% rejected)
UPenn (70% accepted, 30% waitlisted)
Berkeley (80% accepted, 20% waitlisted)

Chances without ED:
Columbia 20%
NYU 40%
Chicago 40%
UPenn 50%
Berkeley 60%

There is a chance that you might get waitlisted at every single school listed above. Thus, look at the bottom of the t14 as well. I'd say you'll definitely be in at GULC, Duke, Cornell, and maybe Northwestern depending on WE. Out of Michigan and Virginia I think you will be able to definitely snag one and maybe both.

Anyway, good luck.

I think the law school looks more like an air conditioner than a toaster personally...
