Does anyone know if in the apartments there are TV hookups in the rooms or if those are only in the common areas? Does this differ between Rains/Escondido? This is not something that would make me change me housing app or anything but I am somewhat curious.

Also, in Rains and Escondido you get to live with other grad students. In Crothers you basically just live with law students. Given how small the school is, you'll probably be seeing enough of us as it is... :)

I sent in my housing app today. It is available through axess. You don't have to commit to going or pay the deposit to send the housing app. It is due May 11th, I think.

My choices:

1. Escondido 3 BR/3 people
2. Rains 2 BR/2 People
3. Escondido 2 BR/2 People
4. Rains 4 BR/4 People
5. Escondido 2 BR/3 People
6. Crothers Single

Tallis seemed to think that Rains was a bit nicer than Escondido. Do you view them as equals? What differences did you see between them?

Well the Escondido 3 BR/3 people gives you privacy, a bathroom, and a kitchen, but is over $100 less a month than the other Rains or Escondido options I listed.

But I'd rather split a bathroom/kitchen with one other person than three. The Rains 4 BR/4 people is not cheaper than the 2 BR/2 people option (at either Rains or Escondido). So the Escondido 2BR is above the Rains 4BR.

I do like Rains more than Escondido, but I am thinking about the money to private space ratio.

Interesting...Don't the 4 BR Rains have 2 bathrooms? Do the 3 BR Escondidos have 1 bathroom? I'm thinking I wouldn't mind so much having to share my living room/kitchen with extra people, but bathroom space is precious. I remember the studios being amazing but I don't want to spend that kind of money. I'll probably put the 2BR Rains first and then either the 4BR Rains or the 2BR Escondido next.

I chose Stanford over Harvard (and Yale wait list) last year but deferred my admission a year, so I'll be in the class of 2011. After the Stanford ASW last year I was pretty much sold and I knew that Stanford was simply where I would be happiest. I don't think I'll regret my decision. I'm super excited to meet all of you that will be there with me! I wasn't at the ASW this year so that summary of housing was super helpful. I didn't really remember all the options from that tour I took a year ago...

Where should I go next fall? / Re: Top-5 Deferring

It was really easy to defer at Stanford and Harvard even sent a deferral agreement with the admissions binder. The one thing to keep in mind though is that you often can't defer off the wait list. If you get in off the wait list at your top choice you might be stuck.

Law School Applications / Re: Harvard email this week?
« on: October 27, 2007, 06:45:12 PM »
I applied as early as I could last year (given that i took the LSAT in October) and I didn't get the phone call until around Thanksgiving. They will be doing phone calls for a long time to come so you all should totally relax! I remember freaking out at this time last year but the stress is sooo not worth it. Plus...after the phone call you have to wait again to get the acceptance call and that is just as if not more stressful.

Where should I go next fall? / Re: stanford vs. columbia
« on: May 02, 2007, 10:06:30 AM »
It seems that Columbia does better on the east coast when it comes to biglaw- but of course it's probably due to self selection.

exactly.

fwiw, i didn't apply to sls and wouldn't, mainly bc it's on the wrong coast.

Once you go West you never go back...

You're remembering the conversation at lunch and not dinner. By the end of the day on Saturday I was convinced that I would be happier at Stanford. I had liked Harvard a lot when I visited but I liked Stanford a lot more. I like the small class size and the access to the professors. The students all seemed really happy. I also agree about Boston being too cold. I never want to move back to the East Coast again.

Jadecrane, that's great!  I'm really excited that you're going to be at Stanford!  Throughout the weekend, I was totally rooting for you to change your mind, so I'm glad I remember wrong.  :)

BTW: that dinner conversation was just so hilarious, esp hearing J's experience with rogue squirrels...

Steph, it'll prob be haunting me too soon!  I will be kind of sad not to be in New Haven this fall. =/

Oh right, the squirrels...I forgot! I'm excited too even though I'm not starting until 2008. I'm a little freaked out too though. It was a hard decision. Harvard obviously got my withdrawal notice today because I received an email from T. Stock asking why I chose Stanford over Harvard. For some reason it's much easier to explain my decision on those impersonal forms than in a personal email.
