New England / Re: NESL?

misssara,

Looks like we'll be rockin' the D2 section.  I've heard from a buddy of mine who is a 2L and we apparently have a good group of professors.  How are you enjoying Boston?  I moved here in June.

Kiwi,
Good luck moving next week, I just moved to Boston myself in June and have loved it so far. 
I have been working on the legal writing assignment a bit and like you, have no legal backround at all so it is a little slow going for me as well.  I recently read a book called, "Starting Off Right in Law School" by Carolyn Nygren....it was very helpful in breaking down some of the terminology and it shows you how to pick out the parts of the briefs that us law students are most interested in.  It's a nice short book that you can read in a day, made things a bit clearer for me. 
Good luck again with your move!

Hey all...just found this site, haven't been to LSD in awhile.  Glad to find some fellow NESL people.  I can't believe we're so close...has anyone checked out the syllabi online yet??  We have real assignments already...yeah!  (Please let me know if I'm the only nerd excited by this).

I actaully got a t-shirt in the mail from Capital about three weeks after I declined their offer.  It was a XX-Large, so it makes a good cleaning rag.

General board for soon-to-be 1Ls / Re: TEST FOR INCOMING 1L's

Also, I start thinking about what constitutes "knowing" under the statutary definition...


especially in the case of teenagers(is baker 13,14,15,16, or 17?)

I agree...Baker may not "know" that driving with people who have been drinking is dangerous.

What else is Cambridge like in terms of places to eat, shops, etc?
Is the neighboorhood quiet or are there bunches of loud undergrads?

Hey all,
I really appreciate all the advice, it's been very helpful in narrowing down neighboorhoods. 

Does anyone have any thoughts on Cambridge?  Is this area close to the T?
I also hear good things about the South End...South Boston...something like that.
Also, are their any places down the red line that are nice?  I've talked to a few people about that area and heard some good things.

Basically what I'm looking for is a 2 bedroom or a very large 1 bedroom and $1500 is about my limit.  I'd prefer a place without a lot of undergrads (cause I remember how obnoxious I was).

I'm totally ignorant to the area so all this advice has been great and I trust this board more than the realtors that keep calling me.   ;D

I just realized it's before 8am so please excuse it if I bump this post later.   ;)

Finding something now for 6/1 is going to be very hard. Just as a heads up.

And don't live in the Fens or Fenway. Acutally, strike that. Certain parts of Fenway are ok, my bf lives right near there now. Unless it's right near Beacon St though, stay away. The Fens are nice during the day, but if you live there, you're bound to be mugged or have your apartment robbed at some point. The Fens is one of the few truly sketchy places in Boston.

I have to agree - I'd probably try to avoid the Fenway area if possible - Beacon Hill is nice, but expensive, and it would be a little hard to buy groceries.  JP is nice, but I think you'd need to drive into Boston, which would be a nightmare.

Have you thought about living across the river?  It's a 15 minute commute from Central Square in Cambridge to Park Street station, and less than a five minute walk from there to NESL, and I bet you'd get more apartment for your money.  I lived in Central for about three years and commuted to a job downtown, and it was very convenient - plus, if you're going to have a car it's a lot easier in Cambridge than Boston.



I think I will check into Cambridge.
I know, my time fram is kind of tight.  I'll make it though.   :)

How is Jamica Plain??

Okay, I just found a website on Grand Central Apartments with user reviews.
People either loved it or hated it.  Grrr, what to do.   >:(
