2L job search / Re: Pet Friendly Housing in DC?
« on: March 02, 2009, 11:33:14 PM »
Anyone summering in DC with a dog? I am, and am trying to find a roommate with the same situation.

What kinda dog is that julie?  Super cool looking.

Also, Dupont is not really a commute.  Don't live in Foggy Bottom.  There is nothing there and it is over priced.  You can walk from Dupont to where you will be working (most likely K street).

She's a cocker spaniel :) Thanks! Thanks all for the advice-- I think I will look at Dupont... I have lived on the VA side, but wanted to be closer to work this summer-- the metro is great, but the commute time is ridiculous.

Anyone know of pet-friendly housing near Foggy Bottom or McPherson Sq? Thx! Trying to cut down on commute time as much as possible.

Another Vandy transfer here... and extremely happy with the decision. Love Nashville, love the students, and love Vandy! Our CSO is absolutely amazing, and they will work their tails off to help you find a job. That alone has made the change well worth it, but I can say with all honesty that my decision to attend Vandy is one of the best decisions I have ever made.

The only things I think Vandy could fix would be (1) nixing the Regulatory State curriculum. I just don't understand the need for this course when a substantive class like Admin Law could be offered ... and (2) I also feel the school could do a better job when it comes to registration for the larger upper-level classes like Evidence, Wills & Trusts, etc. However, the latter issue exists with pretty much every law school. Plus the Registrar hasn't been here for very long, so I guess they are ironing out the kinks. Overall, I've had no trouble getting into classes, clinics and seminars I want. Profs are great here; very approachable.

I can't say enough good things about Vandy. From my friends at other T20 law schools, I think Vandy students tend to be more social and outgoing. People are incredibly friendly here, and I still pinch myself at my good luck to be here.

Canuck996, I figured out who you were from an older post where you mentioned what city you were coming from... however, from my profile pic, you'd better know who I am! ;)

Don't waste your time with Barry. Stetson is good if you want to practice in Tampa. Don't know much about FIU, but there is already a lot of competition in the South Florida legal market with at least 3 other law schools, plus the competition of UF and FSU law.

Transferring / Re: Transfer odds?

You're at zero right now. Get back to us when you have a full year of 1L grades. However, it is much easier to transfer up from T25 to several of the T14 if you're top 15%, whereas someone with your rank at a Top 50 school would not have a chance.

Keep kicking butt this semester and see where you land after spring grades come out. Spend this semester schmoozing professors so you can hit them up for recommendations later (I promise you that every prof I spoke to about transferring was supportive and happy to write a recommendation for me).

I remember now! I was one of many devils floating around Cadillac Ranch that night. Not my most creative costume.

not sure why I didn't see this post from July until Dec (thank you LSD!), but yes, I transferred. How are you liking Vandy?
