My husband and I have put ourselves on the following budget (if you're single, you'd prob. divide this in half):

1st week of the month - $140 ($100 for groceries, $20 each for eating out)
2nd week - $80 ($40 for groceries, $20 each for eating out)
3rd week - $100 ($60 for groceries, $20 each for eating out)
4th week - $80 ($40 for groceries, $20 each for eating out)
5th week - $80 ($40 for groceries, $20 each for eating out)

We generally have no problem getting by on these amounts (although sometimes we'll make an exception for a special occasion). If we don't use all our grocery money, we give ourselves a little extra for eating out, and vice versa.

This is slightly off-topic, but how does spending your 1L summer abroad affect 2L summer jobs? Does anyone ever do an abroad program for the first month and some kind of internship for the last 2 months, or vice versa?

Thanks for the advice, Mike. Did you get a summer reading list as an incoming student? If so, did you read the books they suggested? Were they helpful?

FYI for those of you who are looking for a place to live - 426 Franklin St is for rent. It's not on the law school housing list. I have no idea what they're asking, but it looks like a well-maintained place from the outside. 1 block from Janice Austin's place :-) (and about 3 blocks from where I live) Semi-detached house. 717-275-2215.

I have Comcast for cable tv and internet. I think they're pretty much the dominant company around here. Of course, there are lots of options with internet, not so many with tv.

when does your lease start. whens everybody else planning on getting places? i wasnt going to until end of june. should i start earlier?

I already live here, so I can scout out places for you if you want, haha. How far will you have to travel to get here? The housing list on the web site is still pretty long, but I have no idea how up-to-date it is.

PS: Depending on when you decide to come to town, I'd be happy to show you around. It would be nice to meet a fellow incoming 1L before orientation :-)
