Where should I go next fall? / Re: UMich Lawyers Club

According to the website, UMich does have grad housing, but it is not in the Lawyer's club.

"You may be attracted to two other University Housing options. Family housing, which is relatively economical, is available for students coming to Michigan with spouse, same-sex domestic partner, and/or children. Family housing apartments are located on North Campus, a 20 minute, free bus ride from the Law School. Housing is offered in one, two, or three bedroom townhouses and apartments. Family apartments are allocated on a first-come, first-served basis and applications are accepted from admitted students only."

Also, M16, are you sure they're closed during the breaks? Their website says that residents are "held to the lease for the entire year." I imagine Michigan's Law residence halls might have different rules than the UG ones.

I'd love to live in the lawyers club-why don't you? I understand the desire to cook for yourself, but the meal plan isn't horribly expensive, and have you taken a look at the wood-paneled dining commons? Talk about sweet.

Hey now. UCSB now has a higher selectivity ranking than either UCI or UCD. And those Nobels don't hurt, either.

Hehe, yeah, West Coast.


I made a post about it a couple days ago. It cracks me up everytime. I <3 Berkeley, though. (And I'm not saying that for the benefit of AdComs, I really do)

I don't. But my avatar makes me feel better. Berkeeeleeey.

Oh god, it's 6 AM.

No, you don't got it. GET IT?

I totally missed this thread earlier somehow. Oops, I look like an idiot.

Uh...yes. Any excuse for DW love? Let's get dangerous...

Penn is that bad?

Minority Topics / Re: Glass ceiling for minorities?

Hispanic and black lawyers face much more difficulty in school in general, as well as law. Asian lawyers, not so much. They're a rare minority that is actually overrepresented, probably due to their culture's emphasis on education and money.

As always, I'd expect public interest law to be more open than private work. But, times are a changin', and the partners probably represent what the best of the law schools were like 30 years ago, and not today. I wouldn't be surprised if you were one of the first big minority partners, if there aren't some already. :)

If you don't send out your apps soon, I'll smother you with love. <3

But seriously, if you don't do it, who will I look to as a young 1L needing help from my more experienced classmate?
