San Diego / Beach Roommate Needed
« on: June 09, 2005, 04:15:07 PM »
I'm living in Las Vegas now, going to visit USD within the month to find a decent 2-bedroom on one of the beaches, probably Pacific Beach.
Anyways, USD's housing department sucks. They're not even circulating roommate lists this summer. So I need a room mate, preferably male, to split a 2-bedroom on the beach with. Cost is probably going to be 600/month per person plus utilities.
Please message me on here or e-mail me at bdp5@pitt.edu, or reply if you're interested.

Pittsburgh / Re: Where to Live in Pitt
« on: February 16, 2005, 12:17:22 PM »
I'm an undergrad at Pitt and, unless accepted to UCLA or UC-Davis, will more than likely be going to Pitt for law school in the fall (compliments of a dean's scholarship).
Anyways, yes: you must avoid Oakland like the plague. It's awesome living here as an undergrad, but there are just too many distractions going on to be successful in law school, especially if you know people (IMO). Plus it's f-ing dirty.
No, every person I know that goes to/has gone to law school at Pitt/Duquense lives in Shadyside. It's clean, nice, affordable, and there are several classy bars/restuarants on Walnut when you need to blow off some steam. As a Pitt student, your Pitt ID gets you on ANY PAT bus for free, and there are about 10x that run PER HOUR from Shadyside --> Oakland and Oakland --> Shadyside. Definitely don't need a car. Anyways, I plan on living there during LS and HIGHLY recommend that you do as well.
As for Squirrel Hill: live there if you're Jewish and/or you really love movies. That's about the only thing it has going for it. Squirrel Hill tends to have an older, "yuppie," population (e.g., older, working, married professionals), while Shadyside is full of attractive post-grads working their first jobs, etc.

Hope this helps. Hit me back if you need any other type of help moving into the city.

Law School Applications / Re: Cause for concern?

So basically. . .
You've been accepted to UVA, Cornell, UMichigan and Cornell, and you're bitching on here like some faggot that got rejected by Cooley?
Take your crying elsewhere.
