Personal Statement / Re: I'm a boring person...what to write about?
« on: April 13, 2006, 06:29:50 PM »
Personal statements don't have to be about your experiences saving small children from the teeth of great whites or hitch hiking around India...Just write honestly about who you are and you will have the best personal statement that you can write.

Okay, you are not going to live off the the square or within walking distance of the square unless you are already on a waiting list for an apartment, and are willing to spend twice what you would spend anywhere else in Oxford.  If you want to live off the square your second year, I suggest you contact a realtor and get on waiting lists now to rent or buy.

For apartment complexes, The Links is the newest and nicest - it also has a golf course.  Mostly undergrads live there but some law and grad students do as well.  They have a wait list but it is usually not to bad - if you get on it by the begining of summer, you can usually get something before school starts.  Lexington Pointe is a bit older but also nice and closer to campus.  It is a bit louder though, and some of the apartments have really ugly wall paper in them.  Taylor Pointe Condos are a bit nicer and around the same price, and usually don't fill up until the end of the summer.  A few complexes called The Cove and University Arbors are cheaper, but are much older and pretty run down.

Avoid Campus Creek and Campus Walk apartemts - they are furnished "everything included" places that are geared towards first and second year undergrads that are just moving off of campus.  They are very loud and rowdy, and you will seriously not be able to study past 7pm any night of the week, or anytime on the weekends.  They get crazy.

Look into houses and duplexes in Clearbrook and Cottonwood - I think the website is olemissrentals.com or something like that - lots of law students live there, they are nice and quite, and fairly cheap.  Also look into Huntington Place and Fox Hill Run (or something like that) off of College Hill Rd, some law students live there, they are houses and pretty nice as well.  Also consider renting a condo around town from a private renter, especially off of Old Taylor Road and Saddle Creek subdivision - it is fairly quiet over there and you can get some nice places for very good deals.  Check out the DM Classifieds online -   I think the website is thedmonline.com, or search for "The Daily Mississippian." 

If you are looking to buy, there are condos going up all over Oxford.  Let me know and I will tell you are realator that I used, they were very good.

Let me know if you have any qustions.

Law School Applications / Re: I KNEW I should've marked URM!

This is the best part of the whole article:

“A descendant of Jamaican slaves, Ms. Duncan had already identified the Scottish slave owner who was her mother's great-great-grandfather through archival records. But the DNA test confirming her 10 percent British Isles ancestry gave her the nerve to contact the Scottish cousins who had built an oil company with his fortune…The family's 11 castles, Ms. Duncan noted, were obtained with the proceeds of her African ancestors' labor. Perhaps they could spare one for her great-great-great-grandfather's black heirs?”

I am going to try to find a past genetic link with Bill Gates ;)

Come on, Bill, I would just want enough to cover tuition...I'm not greedy....

Ole Miss, LSU, Arkansas, and Tenn are all going to have huge amounts of beautiful southern bells.  Ole Miss especially is known for having some of the most stunning girls in the South in its undergrad.

No, not at LSU.  If you ask admissions, they will tell you staight up that it is not going to happen.

Where should I go next fall? / amusing....

Today while sorting through my mail, I noticed a flyer from a random unaccredited school in Cali.  But before throwing it away, I noticed the schools name:

The Abraham Lincoln Law School

Does anyone else find it amusing that there is a law school named after someone who is famous for NOT GOING to law school?

Law School Rankings / Re: What schools are underrated by US News?
« on: April 08, 2006, 10:37:35 PM »
Cooley is underrated for sure.  It should be, oh, at least #24.  Def. higher than those TTTs Stanford and Chicago!

  Food around campus seemed very unhealthy and tasted poorly.  The weather was humid and hot, but not too bad

This is the first time I have ever heard anyone complain about the FOOD in NEW ORLEANS!

But seriously, it seems like some people are expecting everything around Tulane to be perfect - it is not, and it will not be for a while.  If someone is looking for a school in a town where everything runs completely smoothly and everything is sparkling clean, Tulane is not the school.  However, if someone is looking for a chance to go somewhere that he/she can really make a difference where it is needed most, Tulane will be an amazing experience.  No where else (well, except for maybe Loyola NO) will one have this kind of opportunity - to be intimatly involved in the rebuilding of one of America's most unique cities.  Just understand what you are getting yourself into before you go, because no doubt it will not be for everyone.

I for one am pumped!
