Choosing the Right Law School / Re: Question on NYU
« on: July 05, 2007, 03:17:16 PM »
For 1L, I thought the NYU housing was fine. Small, but fine- how much time are you really planning on spending cooped up in your bedroom? I'm going to be living in D'Ag, which is where most 1Ls live, so I'll let you know how it is in a few months.  ;D

As for Chicago....I'm gonna get some hate for this, so here's my disclaimer- it seems like there are some cool people going to Chicago from this board, and I know a few nice people from college who are at Chicago, so the following certainly doesn't apply to all Chicago students. HOWEVER- when I went to their ASD, I couldn't believe how incredibly socially inept the group of student hosts were! It was PAINFUL- they couldn't make eye contact when they were talking, and I'm pretty sure some of the guys were scared of talking to the female admits.

That being said, I was impressed at the intelligence of my fellow admits and some of the current students. There's an incredible intellectually curious community at Chicago, which I thought was great. When it came down to it, though, I just couldn't see myself being happy at Chi for 3 years.

I definitely agree that there were a bunch of awkward student hosts.  Maybe it has something to do with the type of student that would be a student host. (MTG and my student host, who are both awesome, are of course excluded from this).  I tried to talk to as many students as possible who weren't hosts or working during the ASW in some capacity. (I did this at most ASWs where I was actually interested in the school).  I found Chicago students to be just as socially normal as other schools that I visited (NYU, Duke, UVA, UPenn, etc).

Maybe I'll be a student host next year so I can help to fix the misconception.  Hopefully I don't make it worse.  :P

Anything else about you fake that we should know about?  :-*

All natural, snookums.

Thank god, I was worried you might have faked it during the ASW.  ;)

No darling, me telling the whole  bar you you're a jackass was all real.   :D

(just kidding everyone - bosco and I <3 each other hardcore)

One bad thing about taking Latin is no movies.   >:(

Consider yourself lucky.  The only thing worse than being forced to sit through roughly 9 and a half hours of that dubbed Burt Lancaster opus "Il Gattopardo" (because apparently Italy hasn't produced a film since 1965) is then being forced to write a paper on it.

I really want to take Latin, actually.


I wouldn't recommend it.  Then again, I wouldn't recommend taking any language, as I am a dunce.

Me too.  My foreign language minor is the reason I don't have the GPA for Stanford.  I've mostly come to terms with the fact that I'm functionally retarded in most of the subjects I most enjoy, but I still wish I had the proficiency to take Mandarin.  I looked into some self-study Latin, but there isn't much out there.  A lot of the verb forms in Italian, especially the more archaic ones, mirror Latin so I thought the two would be complementary.

My excuse is alcohol, plus the fact that for the first 2 years I thought I wanted to be a teacher, so I didn't think my grades would matter too much.

I still have my textbook from Latin - "Wheelock's Latin."  I think it's pretty standard.  For fun I was thinking I might try to re-teach myself some of it.  I think you can basically teach yourself how to read Latin using this book.  I'm really only interested in being able to read Latin - I'm assuming you want to be able to speak too?

Pshh...I seem to remember a ridiculously impressive LSAT score on your LSN profile.

Totally fake.

6th - no idea - some mix of Hawaiian culture and history, I'm sure
7th - Hawaiian History
8th - US History
9th - Global Issues (I really don't know), but now it's MT history here
10th - World History
11th - US History
12th - 1 semester of US Govt, except for AP - for us, the full year but on alternating days of the week

Which reminds me, I took Indep. Study Spanish those other 2 days of the week, and I just got a card in the mail from my Spanish teacher (I think I had her 3 yrs in hs) congratulating me on graduation. It was really sweet :)

Anyone else watch "La Catrina" in Spanish class?  Greatest video series ever.

Hells yeah.  It had a rocking soundtrack.  I just remember that anytime someone said "La Catrina" they were, apparently, obligated to say it in an appropriately weighty and dramatic tone ("La -- CATrrrrina"!)

Beats all the Fellini I had to watch in college Italian.  You cannot convince me that anyone actually likes 8 1/2.

Lol...whenever we would talk about it, we would say "La Catrina" in that tone.  And yeah, I have the soundtrack on my ipod.

Lamar is a loser.

Should we call him "La Loser"? (Dodgeball reference)

And does that mean he's not on facebook?
