Law School Admissions / Re: Know anything about Boston College?
« on: June 01, 2004, 07:49:13 AM »
I love BC, I love BC law, and I love Boston.  A part of me regrets not going there for undergrad (I do love Nova though!).  I'm a big fan of the boston area, and I don't plan on applying to any schools outside of the city.  I visited BC last year and have a few friends in both their undergrad and law school.  If you have any specific questions, let me know and I'll do my best to get you some answers.  BTW, both of my parents went to Rice (mom for undergrad, dad for MBA).  They both loved it and were steering me in that direction, but Houston was just too far away for a New England girl like myself.

Oh man guys.  I'm sick for a few days, and this is what I come back to?  The LSAT must really be getting to everyone.  Can't say it wasn't a welcome distraction though.... ;)

Law School Admissions / Re: Adderall
« on: May 27, 2004, 10:33:26 AM »
I don't know, I think most of you are missing a bigger issue with using Adderall.  My sister, 16, has a friend who is one of those perfect types, always under pressure from her parents to do better.  Cheerleader, straight A's, lots of activities, all that stuff.  My sister was worried about her because people began to hear rumors that she was taking Adderall.  Every time she asked her friend about it, she denied it.  I guess she became dependant, one pill just wasn't doing enough for her anymore, so she started to take more than the recommended dose.  A lot more.  Last friday night, she ended up in the hospital, passed out, getting her stomach pumped.  My sister was the one who found her, and went with her to the hospital.  My mom came, they stayed with her the whole time she was there.  My sister says it was one of the scariest things she's ever been through.

Law School Admissions / Re: Do AdComs talk between schools?
« on: May 26, 2004, 08:58:05 AM »
I know some undergrad schools talk to each other, but not about specific parts of the app.  The Philly area schools (Penn, Villanova, St. Joe's, Temple, Drexel, LaSalle), for example would compare lists of who was applying early.  If your name showed up on more than one binding decision list, you were gone. 

I work for an apartment rental agency in Boston.  If you absolutly can not get out to the place you're moving to, an agent would be your best bet.  If you tell them what you want, the location you want, and how much you're willing/able to spend, they'll do their best to find you a great place.  Usually they can send you digital pictures of a few places.  Many agencies also have deals with moving companies.  Another great thing about agencies is that, in many cases, you can get them to negotiate on your behalf.  Its a great market right now for those looking to rent, and you can get a lot of concessions from the landlord, including having them pay the real estate fee.  On all leases that we do, we accept cosigners if the leasee is a student or just out of school.  As long as you don't have bad credit, getting your parents to cosign should be enough for most landlords.  But do not mention that you'd like student specific housing.  These places tend to be more expensive and not as nice as many other places.  Be honest and tell them you're a law student, law students are percieved as responsible.  The last thing you would want is to lie, get caught, and get evicted during your first year of law school.  You have enough stress to deal with!

I'm here!  I didn't go to work today, not feeling so hot, so I'll only be checking a couple times today instead of obsessively refreshing every few minutes at work.  Its nice to see my absense was noticed!

Yeah, we go to Head of the Charles every year.  Usually race a champ 8 and a light 8.  It is by far my favorite race of the year.  We get to come to Boston, all my family and friends get to see the race, and its such a coxswain's race.  I love it!

Choosing the Right Law School / Re: BC vs. BU vs. Fordham
« on: April 15, 2004, 12:52:14 PM »
To see my defense of Boston, you can go to the hate board, but let me just say that I hope to be in your position and be choosing between BU and BC.  I have a personal preference for BU, but from everything I've heard from both students and lawyers, you'd do fine at either school, but perhaps a bit better in the NYC market with a JD from BU
