I liked the pepperdine Dean bashing as well.

And now he's the president of Baylor.

I thought this was pretty awesome.  Especially since I am a person who is anxiously awaiting a decision from UNC and am in awe of their inability to use e-mail.  Also, I'm always game for some good old fashioned Camden bashing.

Yeah, no breaks for us. But if you go to my school during the summer, you get Pioneer Day off!  ;D

Clearly that's worth missing out on spring break for! 

Seriously though, you're done so soon!  You have a sweet pre-LS break ahead of you!

I am not Irish (though I am marrying a Scottish man and I think that counts for something), but I love St. Patrick's Day traditions.  Although I don't think the "Blow me I'm Irish" shirt I saw yesterday counts as a tradition, I like the parades, the color green, and corned beef.

Anyway, Hoboken is a town in NJ that is just across the river from NYC and A LOT of people live there and commute to NYC.  It's one of the most densely populated towns in the country and it has the most bars per square mile in the US.

So on the day of their St. Patrick's Day parade, all the bars open extremely early and the town gets overrun by pretty much everyone and their mother so they can spend all day Saturday drinking.  People come from out of town, Manhattanites come in and whine about it, and of course, I come in!  The bars get a little ridiculous, the lines are insane, cover charges are very high, and they run out of toilet paper so quickly that most people bring their own.  As a result of this, people throw house parties so no one has to go to the bars, but those tend to get completely out of control.  In an effort to keep it civil, fines for drinking and urinating in public are upwards of $2,000.  Last year, there were so many arrests that the parade was almost canceled altogether.  Thankfully, my boss throws a house party that is nice and tasteful.  And it seemed that people were generally calmer yesterday, so I was happy.

Congrats on the graduation, VB! Its such an exciting thing. I was not drunk for the actual graduation, but i was not in good condition since I was drinking for about two full weeks prior. 

And speaking of drinking too much, today is Hoboken St. Patrick's Day. Glad to know that three years later, i still find it appropriate to spend my Saturdays drinking.

I need to negotiate my scholarship with Temple, and I'm getting increasingly nervous that they won't budge :(

Where are you hoping to practice? You have a good deal of geographic areas represented on LSN and if you're interested in practicing in Philly, I'd negotiate. If you're interested in elsewhere, it's probably not worth your time.

I'm weird, I have interest in a lot of different places.  But I'm from North Jersey and find the idea of living in Philly increasingly appealing since it would be a slight change in scenery without dragging me too far from home.  Despite their sports fans, I like Philly and would be happy to live there.  I visited the school on Monday and I loved it, but my scholarship is non-renewable and I just can't justify that when other schools are offering me renewable scholarships with pretty easy-going stipulations.

Thanks for the good wishes, blue!

I have a question that I would like to put out to you guys since you're generally level-headed, smart, and tend to provide good advice.  I apologize in advance if this is the dumbest question you have ever heard.  Here goes:

I am going to get married after my first year of law school.  I know that's sort of insane but my goal is to plan out 80-90% of the details before I go off to school, so as not to spend most of my time wedding planning while I'm actually in school.  My question is, if I wanted to get married in June and maybe take a week off of work (provided I actually find a job as a 1L), how terrible would that be?  Anyone have any advice?

Honestly...I don't think it's the greatest idea. Why would you need a whole week off? If you're talking honeymoon, you need to suck it up and postpone until after the job ends (which, if it's a 10 week job, would give you plenty of time in August). I don't know...maybe I'm particularly conscious of these things ITE, but I think that would make you stand out in a bad way. Why take that chance?

Not honeymoon, literally just like 2 days to prepare before and 2 days after to chill.  I feel like most people I know worked really low-end jobs in their 1L summer so I wasn't sure how bad it would really be.  But you're right that I'd have plenty of time in August.  Sometimes I just need a person to just confirm for me that I'm crazy.  Thanks for that :)

Yeah..I figured.  I'm sorry that my home state can't be on that list.  You could have done a Jersey Shore wedding.

I hope very much that wherever you are eyeing is legal in a year.  I'm not from Ithaca but we went to school there.  It's where we met, fell in love, etc. and I feel so deeply connected to the place.  I'm a very proud Jersey girl, but the places in this area just don't appeal to me.  I like simple elegance.  New Jersey likes obnoxious chandeliers and stretch Hummers.
