Incoming 1Ls / Re: Long-distance relationship during law school
« on: March 01, 2007, 04:15:28 PM »

Up to and including 1 year, 9 months, theoretically.

In a perfect world, I'd give you this. However, I don't think that too many people are lining up to be with a girl as she starts to develop. Furthermore, this would imply that she got pregnant as a result of a one night stand or broke up with a BF immediately after conception. Neither of these would speak highly of her character. I tend to think that she and the OP met when the kid was four to six months old and have been seeing each other for six to eight months. If he had been around since the kid was born, he would already be Dad. I just want to point out that basing the rest of your life around someone you haven't known for a year is a risky proposition at best.

Edit: is she cheerful?

Cheerful enough to have a kid. Seriously, he's been seeing her for less than a year and is talking about marriage after he gets out of law school. I have to wonder how many other girls he's been with to say this about a girl who has some baggage. I also am curious about the demands that she is putting on him. Is the distance a big deal to her? Is she pushing him to stay within reach? I would need more information (ages for one thing, school for another) for this to be copacetic if the OP was a friend of mine. Otherwise I'd probably try to talk him out of it.

Don't know that and, besides, he's the one worrying about visiting.  Furthermore, it seems that he's sufficiently self-interested, if you read OP's comments.

One year old kid that's not his. I doubt he would have stuck with her if he was seeing her before she got knocked up, so I don't think they have been together more than a year. I could be wrong, but no clarification has been given.

I think you should post this on XOXO for some views from the other side of the fence. It sounds like you got your *&^% together, this girl...not so much. Furthermore, if she has a 1 yo kid that isn't yours, how long have you been with her? How well do you know her? Can you trust her when you are supposed to be studying that she isn't out? What does she do? It sounds like she still lives with her folks. Be careful man, this girl may have heard law school and just pictured what "could be."
Relationships are great and all, but don't sacrifice yourself and what you want to accomplish.

I can't make the first one, but will make one of the last two. Will be in the area the week after the first ASW and was thinking of just wadering around for a little while.

I will hold firm to my belief that the COL in Ithaca is being underestimated, but I feel as if I'm on an island right now. I have to say though, it would be nice to get a 1BR instead of the studio that would probably occur in DC.

Good point! I did not think about that

I was offered 16K a year by Santa Clara, but had to stay in the top quarter of the class. U of Cinci offered 12K a year, but tied it to keeping a 2.0. That seems a lot more reasonable.

And a 1BR in downtown DC is going to be over $1000.

Yeah, after researching C-list, it looks like a 3-4 hundred dollar difference. But I think a car in Ithaca is really handy, if only for touring wineries. However, you can get cheap flights from DC. The Ithaca airport is tiny and is only served by US airways, so they jack up the prices. I'm grasping at straws here, I'll pencil Ithaca down at 900 and DC at 1250.

Are there stipulations on your Akron scholarship? That is what would scare me off. No one really knows if they will remain in the top quarter of their class.
