Boston College / Re: BC class schedule for next year's 1L fall semester
« on: August 19, 2004, 12:00:44 PM »
i think 2nd semester we take con law I, the LRRW class (the 2nd part), and the professional responsibility class. and i guess there must be one more that we take as well... is there a second class (besides LRRW) that is also a full year class?

no, not a T stop...  its definitely on a bus line, though i couldnt tell you which one unless i know where you think youll be coming from. would it be the washington street stop on the B line?

check out www.mbta.com if you want to try to map it out.

the only gyms that i know of that are right on a T stop are Golds (which is right by the Kenmore Sq. stop -- next to Fenway) and Boston Athletic Club (which is just a few stops past the Washington St. stop). The most convenient one would be the Boston Athletic Club. its also the most expensive, though (like $70+ per month). it is quite nice inside and definitely has the best equipment of any club in the area (including ballys). I havent been to this Golds gym, but my gut feeling (having been to MANY Golds gyms) is that there is tons of equipment, all high quality, but not the newest, most advanced stuff. im guessing that membership is probably around $55 a month. the biggest downside to Golds is that there are a TON of stops between your apartment and Kenmore square. Its probably like a 25 minute T ride from your place to Kenmore square, and then a 5 minute walk to the gym.

your other option would be to wait till school starts and then check with me... if your study/working out schedule works with mine ur always welcome to grab a ride (especially since you live so close to me).

and of course, there is always the BC gym. if you are into weights, you are going to be VERY disappointed as there is almost no selection. if you are into cardio you might be ok as long as you dont work out at the peak times (im guessing 11-1 and 5-7 will be hard to get a machine).

ok, so does anyone know when we find out what Legal Reasoning, research and Writing section we are in? I'm not seeing it in the Agora website.

and speaking of "useful" information:

if anyone is having trouble sending email from their apartment, i might know why (especially if you are using RCN for your ISP). you might have some problems since both RCN and BC evidently block port 25 emailing and becuase RCN evidently blocks outgoing email to bc's mail server.

grrr... nothing is ever easy...

eee,

Keep bringing that useful information and we'll let you stay in section 2.  Look forward to putting you down as a reference.

just trying to help those non-bostonians out! (also, im VERY bored)

and thanks for putting me down as a reference... just dont tell them that my name is "eee" they might get a little confused (not hard to do). for my full name, just look up the class roster and look for the only "Ian" in section 2. and feel free to email before classes start :)

its somewhat of a renters' market right now. though, it is the boston area, so its never going to be cheap... just less expensive. and of course, as the economy gets better (IF it gets better) rents are going to start creeping up again. i'm paying $610 for a big place right near brighton center and comm ave. i know of people paying just around $500 and living within walking distance of BC.

it also depends if you are going to have a car or not. if you are looking at BU and want to be close to the school, parking could be an issue and might end up costing you an extra $100 unless you are lucky enough to find an apt that comes with a parking spot. brookline is VERY hard to find a place with a parking spot. brighton is easier and allston even easier.

bottom line: i wouldnt let the cost of housing weigh too heavily into your decision. BU is a little more expensive since it is closer to the center of boston (assuming that you want to live very close to the school), but it is factored into their cost of attendance (the amount of money you are able to take out loans for). so in the end, maybe you pay an extra grand or two for BU vs BC. assuming you are taking out loans for 150k like most people, its a small fraction of your total cost.

however, housing aside, BC is infinitely better than BU. not that im biased or anything :)

hmmm... we must be neighbors then seeing as im 5 min away as well :) where are you in relation to brighton center? im like a 20 second drive up chestnut hill ave (going towards comm ave). im right next to the sutherland T stop on comm ave (on the B line).

i signed up for 3 years but here's the deal: you can always transfer your membership to another ballys w/o paying a fee. and if you move somewhere where there isn't a ballys within 25 miles, then they will let you cancel your memberhsip without any problem. so, since my parents live way up in maine, if i want to cancel ill just have one of my credit card bills sent there. then all i have to do is show ballys the address on the bill and they will let me out of my membership. of course, all this is even assuming that i want to cancel before the 3 years is up.

glad to hear that someone else is joining bally's, btw!

for those who care, just wanted to let you know that bally's is pretty cheap right now (even cheaper than the BC gym, i tihnk). i put $50 down (which includes the 1st month's payment) and my monthy payment will be like $26.

the gym is in brighton (like 10 minutes from BC), right next to the New Balance outlet. For those into weights, the gym is good, not great, but infinitely better than BC. for those into cardio, its a paradise.

if anyone thinks that they are going to sign up, let me know so you can put me down as a reference :)
