For those debating the Big Easy, I thought it would be fun to post some suggestions of favorite places and b/c I am really bored and its gross in Chicago today so I need some warm thoughts.
Favorite Bars?
Favorite Dive Bars??
Places to eat??
Where to live??
Just some ideas....

Favorite Bar-Pat O's (a classic)/Balcony Bar
Dive: Snake and Jakes/Mermaid Lounge
Places to Eat: The Rat (at Tulane...if its still on meal plan) NOLA and Martin's
Places to live: Woodward in the Warehouse district (for my masters)

Just curious how many applicants out there and their experiences? I am not sure if this is the right place to post either...
I have about 90 pages that certify that I am 'special' but I didn't get the dx until late in high school b/c I was the only kid they ever had in AP sciences but remedial math....anyway, I am 26 now and was always able to compensate for my disabilty but college bit me in ass (b/c stubborn me really thought I didn't need to tell my school about it) but I still managed great grades (for my school at least) after one bad semester ( my undergrad advisor put me in advanced science classes that I was the only frosh in...such a great plan) and my lsast score is really bad. The lsat bastards shot down my request for accommodations b/c my documentation stressed the math issue (it was there to juxtapose it with my success in sciences etc...) Anyway, I want to hear what 'special' folks like us do....I wrote an addendum about my experience but I don't think lsat scores should be my barrier to a T-2 law school. I was always a strong student (minus a few bad ideas in college...yeah 8 am calc...) Ok...Thanks!
