Choosing the Right Law School / Re: IF UR A VIRGIN...

What a great thread!  I haven't laughed this hard in a while.

To the OP...go to your school's undergrad and find some know the type...girls that want to date guys with cash but don't quite know the game yet.  Talk lots about how you're are a law student and how when you are a laywer you will be making six figs to start out.  Talk about getting onto a 7 year partner track and all that jazz.  Get a business card made up if you can.  Not knowing any better (that a real gold digger doesn't date guys until they actually have money) they will be more than willing to give it up.

Hey I am sorry to hear about that!  Booo Ole Miss!

USC kicks ass, and they have great placement in the greatest place to live in the south, Charleston...actually I think one of the greatest towns in the country.  I am sure you will have a great time there!  Oh yeah, and being able to root for a football team that wins more than..i don't know...four games a season.

But Ole Miss's loss, and congrats on making a decison with South Carolina!

Did anybody's thoughts on the school change after visiting? Also did anyone look at apartments? Did anybody find any apartments worth mentioning? For all the talk I heard about how low the cost of housing is in Oxford I didn't find that to be the case. While housing was not outrageous, it wasn't all that cheap either. I have heard the cost of living in Oxford sneaks up on you, taxes are high and so are groceries and gas. It is a nice town and everyone was real nice, but I don't really understand the craze to move up there that seems to exist.  Just curious about yall's input. Thanks.

Housing in Oxford is cheap compared to living in many other cities and town in the south.  It is not particularly cheap compared to the rest of Mississippi (and especially not compared to Starkville).  You can find a nice one bedroom apartment or duplex for about 400-500/month, and a two bedroom for about 600.  If you are looking to buy, there are new condos going up everwhere, to buy brand new would be just over 100k, if you want something a bit older (but still built or remodeled in the last few years) you can find nice places between 80-90k.  Taxes aren't particularly bad, and groceries are the same price here as everywhere else.  Gas is the same price in Oxford as everywhere else in the area, and maybe a few cents a gallon more expensive than a few places in Jackson or Memphis.  The quality of living in Oxford is great, everything is close by, traffic consisits of a few cars on the square, and there are loads of restuarants/bars/art galleries/stuff to do in general for such a small town.

If you have any questions about living in Oxford or apartments around the school, let me know.

Isn't the whole point of going to law school to find a husband?

Why on earth would you go if you had one already?

Depends on the school - some places don't disperse loans until the first day of classes, some do it sooner.  Call the fin aid office at your school - they will know for sure.

Choosing the Right Law School / Re: Thoughts on LSU

I visited LSU and really liked it - the campus and building are very nice, and the students that I spoke to seemed really happy to be there.  They place really well all over Louisiana, and okay in Houston.  And LSU football games are CRAZY...but you can't get tickets untill your second year >:(

Overall, if they had offered me instate tuition, I would have strongly considered attending.  Def. not a bad place to end up!

Are........ You......

KIDDING ME???? (instead READY)

Nothing...  Dear lord..

I think you should come to admitt day anyway, it will show them that you are coming here next year, whether they like it or not ;)

And did everyone get the reading assignment?  Hysterical, practice for gunners....

I got rejected by both schools that I applied to within an hour of my parents.  I think it is fate's way of trying to tell me somethings. :D
