Harvard U / Re: Let's get the H school-specific board rolling
« on: July 08, 2005, 05:52:36 PM »
boston's public transportation system is amazing. do not buy a car for living in boston its a town made for people to walk around in. the T (the subway) will take you where ever you need to go. and if the subway doesnt go there, then you dont need to be there. if you take a car itll get snowed in, towed, and youll never be able to find a parking space. as far as places to live, south boston is cheaper like dorchester or even places into quincy and braintree, the college kids like to live in the city, but those places are pretty pricey. poorer students live in people's basement apartments. you just have to look around in ads and stuff.

jessica- she posted under the arkansas - little rock board, so she's presumably talking about little rock, arkansas.

Transferring / Re: Boston University v. Boston College

In Boston, Boston College's Law school is considered superior, in case youre interested in the Boston job market. Over all I dont think its going to matter at all where you go unless youre going to have an easier time at one school than the other. Time for eeny-miney-moe.

Wait List / Re: Email sent by Adcom asking about continued interest
« on: July 13, 2005, 09:44:42 AM »
theyre thinking 'hey put this file in another pile until we hear back from him that way if he isnt interested then we dont have to waste our time going over it again.' it means nothing in the way of whether they want you to attend or not, if they cared they would have admitted you in the first place.

ive heard that they serve the same market. people say that nova places well in the tri-state area and nj is one of those states. i dont know why youd want to live or work in nj though. and if youre going to transfer you should try to transfer up like to nyu i hear they place somewhat well in the nyc area unless you wanted rutgers for personal reasons. for real dude nj smells really weird and i have never seen one garden there...but i havent done any extensive searching for one cause they would have charged me to get off the damn pike. i think you should try to transfer into a school that places well in the virginia beach area, or del mar in southern california.

Wait List / Re: How to get accepted off waitlist???
« on: July 11, 2005, 11:18:41 AM »
wait until the first day of orientation then call and ask if since some of the people didnt show up, could they let you off the waitlist? or you can show up and ask to be let off the waitlist. im not joking. ive heard that it really works

if youre backpacking in europe or asia you'd have to take trains otherwise you wouldnt get to see a lot. how else would you get around? i guess hitch hike, but people are scary

when you backpack you travel with a backpack usually cross country, but you dont walk the whole way, you take public transport as long as they allow you to bring your backpack on board. if youre not taking a train thats known as hiking, and if youre just sitting around a campfire thats known as camping, and if you didnt take public transportation while you did it that would be a road trip.

Non-Traditional Students / Re: parenting = gap in work experience
« on: July 09, 2005, 07:32:48 PM »
i dont think that your taking off conventional work to take on motherhood will pose a problem unless the adcoms are stupid. generally if someone sees that a woman who had a successful career chose to give that up in order to be a successful mother its understood that she isnt just bumming around and being unproductive. thats not to say that some people wont think that. however its important for your future that you not downplay your full time motherhood on resumes and the such, if you were a nanny instead of a mother people would assume you were an able professional and you should push people to think youre an able professional in raising your own children, it would show that you have a clear set of priorities and virtues and that appeals to people.

i think the answer to your question is more determined by your study habits, how you usually study and how you learn and retain information best. Its my experience that getting a good score on the LSAT is more a matter of learning how to think like the test makers want you to think. You can only learn this way of thinking if you spend a lot of time learning how to find the best answers. I think you can study while youre on vacation, in fact I think you had better study while on vacation if youre planning on doing well on the Oct LSAT. If youre backpacking (like the topic implies) there are lots of times when youre waiting for a train or bus or something, and youll most likely be in several places where there isnt much more to do than study. Although it may not make for the best of vacations, studying while on vacation can be a more pleasant studying experience.
