Lakewood and University Heights are both good areas to live. Lakewood has lots of tall apartment buildings along the lakefront, and the rent is reasonable ($450 for a one bedroom with garage parking.) Ohio City is a historic district, really culturally alive place to live, with the west side market, lots of people out, cool bars and good music. University Heights is near Case, so you get a student-type crowd and you are near the heart of little Italy, so the food won't disappoint. Coventry is nearby as well, and it's funky and young adult friendly. I would advise driving around and checking out which area you feel comfortable in, since they all have their own advantages/atmospheres. If you want to live within walking distance, Reserve Square is an apartment complex about 2 blocks from the law school.

I LOVED going to undergrad with 'returning students'. I am 24 and they averaged probably around 38. I learned so much from them... they had work experience, life experience, and relevant examples and ideas for application.

sometimes you can get Arabic through mosques or maronite catholic churches, free or cheap. Hebrew you might be able to get through a Jewish center or Temple. That is obviously specific. I've also found you can ask foreign students for tutoring. Lots of fun!

ENTJ here :) If nothing else, tests like that help you understand what you could potentially focus on as far as adjusting unconsious traits if necessary.

Do people seriously chat online during class? I'm soon to be a 1L and find that concept flabberghasting!

I was admitted and I am still up in the air (waiting to hear from 4 schools still.) I got into a school in Oregon that is sort of on-par with C-M. I am a native Clevelander and right now I am leaning towards C-M--I am just waiting for something (I don't know what) to push me over the edge one way or another!

Any clue about where you guys are living? I have been wondering where to live a lot recently!

are there any current Willamette students out there? I am seriously considering attendance (have already been admitted) and would love to hear your opinions... top 3 great things, worst 3 things about the school? How bad is this curve I hear about and how many people lose scholarships? Thanks!

I would definitely give more weight to your professors explanation, just because generally professors assign grades and casebooks don't--but I would demonstrate knowledge of the case material as much as possible.

really interesting experiment!

I've used variable interval questioning to keep kids alert and 'processing', myself. It's sort of an elementary synthesis.
