I'm a male, but i live with a girl who has a bf right now and there are no problems...but obviously if ur bf is uncomfortable with you having a guy roomate, dont worry about it.

I live in NYC right now, but i'm from long island so i always have home to fall back on in the summers.  If you find a decent place (distance, roomy, not in the ghetto) but need roomates, let me know, i may wanna jet the dorm scene if i get stuck with a double.

I'm super anxious too.  In terms of living, i'm not to crazy about going back to dormlife and i'll be livid if i get stuck with a double.  But, the question is, do you really want to have to worry about food shopping, cleaning, bills, etc. when ur in school?  And, do you want to worry about living in hempstead or commuting?  I'll answer for you, no you do not.  But it all comes down to what's more important to you.  By the way, did you know that the hofstra campus can be considered an aboretum?  Apprently they've extensively invested in various flora.  Go figure.

Nice to see someone jostling this post...i went to admitted student day as well.  I thought the facilities were rather dreary, but other than that hofstra seems to be an alright school.

Not to be a nag, but i was really trying to cull out your individual experience and what exactly went wrong with it.  I mean you have described things, but not always specific things.  What exactly were you lied to about?  What were the inadequacies you saw?  Howcome academics arent a bright spot?  On a complete side note, from what i've gathered from friends who've visited from california, they HATE long island.  I dont really get it, but then again i've never living in CA.  Anywho, thanks for the input.

I'm interested in your experience calikid.  Or more specifically what ur expectations were going into law school?  It seems like you expected to be fawned over.  Also could this bitter attitude reflect finals time or a sub par first semester?  I'm not attacking, just interested in your anonymous experience.

admitted student day was interesting.  It was nice to hear from successful alumni and sit in on various info sessions.  In terms of atmosphere, it sounds like Hofstra isnt a 'cut throat' school. I was reassured that it is competitive, but not to the extent that people are unfriendly towards each other.  Also, it appears as though Hofstra prides itself in its teaching, meaning, there is an emphasis on student teacher relationships.  How much of that is true, i am unsure, but most of the students i've talked to seemed to think that their professors were 'great'.  All in all i'd say hofstra seems very promising, but what an ugly campus(they do have nice facilities though). 

I think that is a great point JD MSA.


But people, stop putting that d**mn Fooseball post up. It is simply illogical. He suspects a correlation between the suggestion of relaxing before a truly grueling endeavor and people who have messed up priorities and went straight from undegrad to law school? Interesting assumptions...that logic should serve you well in law school. Ladies and gentleman, the next Clarence Thomas!!!

What I actually said was that the ‘fun and relaxation’ bit just goes to show where certain individuals priorities are, namely undergrads who went straight to law school.  Meaning, their priorities are probably on ‘fun and relaxation’.  Is that messed up?  No, nor did I imply that.  Does that mean you shouldn’t have fun and relax?  NO, nor did I imply that.  Did I make that assumption out of the blue or illogically like east west insists? NO…What I did base that assumption on was students I went to undergrad with.  Some went to law school directly some waited a year, some two, others four years.  Guess who emphasized fun and relaxation before law school the most?  You guessed right, the students who went straight in.  Did the other students who waited say don’t relax or have fun?  Of course not, but they were not as staunch as the ‘straight-ins’ about fun and relaxation.  Is there some sort of correlation here?  I think so, but I never said it was an overwhelming one, nor did I say it was the definitive answer and I NEVER made a false assumption, just an educated guess  ;)
