no, its not near f&m's... its kinda hidden in a neighborhood on Oak.. On the Tulane side.. Sweet, sweet, place.. Someone was murdered there while i was in school (the place is safe as can be though.. i swear).. My favorite dive bar, hands down, is BUTLERS.. That place is sweet, sweet passion.. Its right on the river and serves pabst in a bottle (i didnt even know that * & ^ % came in a bottle until i went there for the first time)..

NOLA is sweet love.. I miss it too much.

Was that the same year the kid was shot in hand?? I think so....
Butlers!!! Holy f**** sh**!! That was great!! I still have to vote Snake and Jakes....Abita purple haze.


Oh and the crime thing...the biggest mistake people make down there (and are new to New Orleans) is that crime is only in 'bad' areas, its not so just don't get blotto and wander around the city solo (yes it happens) and lock your doors (Um, stupid to say but you have no idea how many friends of mine were robbed for leaving the door unlocked) New Orleans can vary block to block. My college b.f would get so drunk he would leave his snob car open, unlocked...nobody touched a thing...one block over, one of our friends was mugged sitting on his porch in the afternoon. Crime happens everywhere.

Reviews, Visits, and Rankings / Re: Schools with Nasty Reputations.
« on: January 21, 2005, 10:16:57 AM »
In Chicago, my friends at John Marshall and Kent like to say that Northwestern is like that( book hiding, etc) but I met with a recent NU law grad ( not through NU) and she said that's bull b/c Northwestern doesn't have class rank cut offs for OCR so its not as cut throat. I only heard of that happening at Kent when my mother went there.....over 28 years ago.....JMLS here has a very cut throat reputation but my friends that are there don't agree.

Kent has done a stand out job rebuilding the school (new building) and recruiting national candidates. I am from Chicago, my mother is a Kent alum and it has been just wild to see Kent's rise. I am going to the open house tomorrow to see it for myself. They have raised their admissions standards over the past few years and its so exciting to see all this chatter about Kent. Good luck everybody!!!

Acceptances / Re: YES!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! (Georgetown)

Oh my. oh my..

I am starting to regret that I ever had the idea to post things.

As to providing numbers, bear in mind that I am not averse to providing the numbers. It's been provided several times in this board and if y'all just wanna know from now on, my lsn is nikoniko.

So fine, in my excitement numbers were not the first thing that I thought about, ok?

Sheesh.



I would give you my first born for your numbers, congratulations on your acceptance!!!

I did provide them. I have no idea why this is becoming such a freaking issue. What happened to being happy for other people? I am not the first and only to post anything on this board without first providing numbers. and I don't think that makes me a horrible person.
