Incoming 1Ls / Re: How many miles for your big move?
« on: July 05, 2008, 01:22:53 PM »
Long Island to Philly.  In terms of mileage that doesn't sound so bad, but it is time consuming and expensive because we have to pass through some of the most high-traffic, toll-heavy areas of the country!!

Crimea River.  That's not even 100 miles.  Get real.

Oh wait - I just clicked on your LSD link.  I was thinking you were going to Penn.  I wouldn't move 100 miles to go to Temple.  I don't think I'd even move 10 miles to go there.

OBTW, the reason the tolls are so high is you have to pay to get out of Jersey.  There's a high demand for that.


Wow. You're rude. Glad I won't be seeing you in the fall.

Attend events through school, talk to people, you will find opportunities to network once you enter school.  Do whatever makes you comfortable, but it just seems a little nuts to begin preparing mail merges now.  Plus, most firms will want to see your first semester grades, so just because you can send out resumes on Dec 1 doesn't mean anyone will look at them yet. Good luck whatever you do.

I don't plan to network.  At all.  I plan to just send them out and rely on my school's reputation as a T10, if not T5.

Wow. I am having trouble taking this poster seriously.  Have fun mail merging all summer.

I just wanted to thank uh.huh and vercingetorix for their posts.  You guys offered a fresh perspective, and it is great to hear from some people who are not very recent college grads.  Very much appreciated!

Financial Aid / Re: Grad PLUS Loans

Your school should notify you when to apply.  My school told me later in June they will send out  more info on loans and the aid package.

That's your opinion, and it's good that you stated it.  Most of us who posted were just posing questions for thought to the OP, so you don't need to lump everyone and say the responses were stupid. It's just rude!

I can't believe the stupid responses you are getting.  This is a total no-brainer.  REAPPLY next year.  With your numbers, you could easily be getting some fairly decent cash to T30 schools (with the possibility of some elite acceptances or big$ if you honestly think you can get a better LSAT).  And unless your scholarship is something special, BLS usually has pretty bad requirements for their scholarships, which means you could definitely lose it.  One more year off will not harm you in any way.  I recommend looking for a service job (Americorps or the like) because it boosts your application, resume and is just generally a good experience.  Either that, or bust your ass and save up money then go to guatemala and volunteer for awhile like I did.  Seriously, reapply and you won't regret it at all.  I did exactly that and could not possibly be happier with that decision. 

PS. It's time to grow up and live your life for your decisions instead of worrying too much about mom and dad.  You might be surprised that they respect you for it.     


It's stupid to pose questions for the OP to consider about school and his own personal decision making process?  Why can't you just give your input without calling people's responses (who are just trying to help someone out who asked for it) "stupid"?

I am attending Rutgers and will be bringing my car.  Depends on your preferences. I like knowing I can drive to visit friends, family around the tri-state area.  I've been living off of public transportation for 7 years now and I am ready to have my own set of wheels.  Start off without it to see how it goes, and if you feel like you really need one, you can look into it then.
