St. Thomas (Minnesota) / Where to live?
« on: April 01, 2007, 05:19:27 AM »
I hear a lot of students live at the brentwood apartments.  Studios go for about $500.

I'm willing to live in a complete sh|t-hole to save some bucks.  What are my best options?  I'll probably try to craigslist a non-psycho roommate.

St. Thomas (Minnesota) / Admitted students day, anyone?

I'll be there.  I'm kind of on the lookout for a prospective roommate, but it might be hard to screen for psychos in such a short period of time.

I figure in college it was *purely* random so this couldn't be too bad.  If you haven't killed anyone in the last 2 months, hit me back.

St. Thomas (Minnesota) / Re: U of Saint Thomas vs. William Mitchell

An hour in traffic is an hour lost.

St. Thomas has an undergrad campus in St. Paul that sends free a shuttle to the Minneapolis (law and business) campus every 20 minutes.

I am ambivalent about the Catholic orientation
Yeah, all the religios stuff is bull. But then again, so is religion.

I cannot pay off $100k+ in school debt plus cover family needs on a token salary.
If you're going to law school with some vague notion of public service life is going to kick you in the teeth.  Repeatedly.  Your dreams will be crushed against the rocks of reality that come with a six figure debt.  Credit: Tucker Max.

I will read Scott Turow's "One L" before deciding on this.

One L is way outdated.  Read this whole thread:

Transferring / T3 $$$ to Wisco vs Indiana-Bloomington $ to Wisco

Transfer applicants are generally accepted only when they rank within the top 15% of their classes, depending on the quality of the law school from which they are applying. Enrollment pressures force a limit on the number of transfer applicants that can be accepted, generally ranging from 2-5 annually. The competitiveness in any given year depends on the overall quality of the applicant pool and available space. Preference is given to Wisconsin residents who apply for transfer on the basis of strong academic showing at another law school.



How much easier are we talking?  I'm from Wisconsin.  And I know it'll be tough either way.  And I know passing up the T1 for T3$$$ is inadvisable, but I have no big law aspirations.  JAG gives little weight to what school you attend, and the school I'm looking at is affiliated with both Navy and Air Force ROTC detachments.  Conveiniently, those are the branches that award JAG commissions before you've even completed 1L.

If I don't make it, I'd seriously consider dropping out with only 8K or so in debt. 

I know it's a risky move, I'm just trying to callibrate how risky.  Input please.

General board for soon-to-be 1Ls / Re: Drinking culture in LS

I think there's a lesson in this, and that lesson is that there are absolutely no negative consequences to alcohol, binging, and unprotected sex.  Especially in combination.

I'm invincible.

Final point:  Stop assuming jag isn't competitive.

Jag is competitive.  But I will get there.  Then I'll post about how I did it.

I pale face.  She also vanilla face.  Baby is CARAMEL FACE.  AHAHAHAHHAHAA!!!!!!
