Sorry, I've been busy and unresponsive (to apparently not much activity). I'll be all over the world with not much internet access for winter break so it might take me until mid-January to answer questions. I'll try to check in if I can though.

What kind of corporate opportunities exist with Upenn in the realm of consulting, banking…etc? I have heard law students option out of firm life and going to work for UBS, McKinsey, Ernst & Young… etc

I have a friend working for McKinsey this summer. He is also in BALSA. I'll see if I can get you his e-mail address.

shouldn't you be in class right now?  oh wait...thats where I am

Nope. Just trying to make it through this f-ing Corporations outline. Ugh.

hey do you guys have any idea what the penn law boxing team is like?  Is it a huge commitment?  Also, I heard there are friday night fight nights in philly which is just awesome.

I can't answer this, can anyone else?

M1 - I was just at Wax's house this weekend! I had her for a seminar and she had all like 15 of us over, it was pretty sweet. She hates Bush and the war in Iraq, go figure  ;)

Cady, are you the person who was walking with Towelie on Sansom today?

Also, the dorms aren't the worst I've seen, but for the money you can probably do better.  The area west of campus is getting pretty nice and is still cheap, if you want to live somewhere close to school.

Incidentally, I've heard there's one 1L who commutes to school from NY, which is pretty crazy.

That was her! Also, that 1L will be transferring to Columbia or NYU (which is probably pretty easy to do from Penn), assuming the commute didn't kill his/her grades.

Do you have any advice on things I should do - Penn specific - to prepare to come to Philly should I get in for ED?  Any things you would suggest doing before Fall?

If you can, visit to get an idea of where you might want to live. It's a lot easier to decipher apartment listings if you've explored the area.

Cady,

Who let you back into my thread?

May you be touched by His Noodley Appendage.

Riverwest 'tiki?

Buy a bullet proof vest...I kid.  Not much for preparation, kick back and relax.  If you want to live off campus, make sure you start looking for apartments mid-July.

Haha!!! I made the same joke having not read your post!

Buy a bullet-proof vest? Just kidding.  ;)

Relax! Enjoy life! Travel if you can (though you can do this during your 2L and 3L)! Search Craigslist for good apartments and start getting an idea. They fill up fast in the spring but you might be able to get a better place (even for the fall) now.

I really want to feel immersed with the entire class wherever I go, I thought the dorms would be the best option.  Do you guys feel that you are still "part of "the school" even living off campus?  Don't take that quote too literally, I think you guys get what I'm trying to say.

I get what you are trying to say. I purposely lived off campus to avoid being immersed with law school - I needed a life outside of it. If you want to be immersed, the dorms are certainly the best route or you could look into Domus which is also right across the street (though much, much more expensive), and find a similar environment at buildings like The Left Bank, and Riverwest.
