Where should I go next fall? / Re: Michigan 1L Taking Questions

Do Summer starters have a lower median LSAT/GPA?

In my case, yes. but probably not true for summer starters as a whole.

My hometown homie here is far too hard on himself.

I have to say that the designation of AA as a breakfast pastry desert is entirely accurate. I've also found it impossible to locate a decent donut... do any of my compatriots have recommendations on this?

I mean, really... the nearest Dunkies is on the far end of Ypsi, I think.

But, on the other hand.... we have hippie hash.

Mickey:

Washtenew Dairy on Hoover and Ashley has goooood donuts.  It also has gigantic ice cream cones for $2!

I don't know how you feel about the word "internship," but hearing it makes me feel like I just drank a warm batch of sour milk.  Too many internship horror stories throughout college ruined it for me, and I won't even mention my own brushes with the glamorous world of unpaid editorial stints.


well, you can always call yourself a "law clerk" rather than a "legal intern" if it floats your boat.  BTW legal interships aren't like undergrad internships, legal interns are repsonsible for legal research, drafting documents, and other generally non-menial "stuff."  You won't be running around getting coffee.

Do they pay?

Also, do you they have a better title?  I was hoping to call myself "defender of justice."  Too soon?  Should I wait until I obtain my own vaguely British butler and an underground lair where I use sonar to hone in on cell phones?

You can pick the money or the title; never both.

I vote that someone change the name of this thread to "Michigan 3L Taking Questions."  Yeh, its that old.

Hi everybody!

I just got off the waitlist at Michigan and am planning to join you in Ann Arbor this fall. I'm very excited but feeling a bit overwhelmed by the logistics. I would really appreciate help with these two issues:

1) I'm visiting Ann Arbor next week trying to look for a place to live. My preference is to live in either a 1 bedroom converted house type of situation or a group house (but I think that might be impossible to do at this point in the year). I'm not too interested in living in complexes. What part of town do most law students live? I'm not fresh out of college so I'd prefer to live in an area that wasn't innundated with undergrads. Also, I don't have my financial aid figured out yet due to the last minute nature of the situation, so I'm also wondering what most people spend on housing per month. What would be reasonable? Any thoughts would be hugely appreciated!

2) I'm also wondering what you all are doing for health insurance. Did Michigan mail you a health insurance information or a health form you needed to fill out prior to the start of classes?

Thanks everybody!!


Hey.  Consensus is that the plan offered through UM sucks. Its 2300 a year and doesn't cover all that much.  I just recently switched to a plan through BCBS Michigan that only costs about 600/year and also doesn't cover much.  I'm MUCH happier with this plan than Michigan's (Chickering)  I know a bunch of other people also either went with BCBS Michigan from the beginning or switched to it after last year.

Good luck and welcome!

Bouzie, which BCBS plan is this?


Hollow, its called "young adult blue."  Yeah, I'm almost 26 but whatev...

Here's a link  http://www.bcbsm.com/myblue/myblue_home.shtml#tab1d

My god, OCI research is fun!

From the Vault guide:

"The firmís on-campus recruiting roster is fairly standard, with emphasis on superstar law schools like Harvard, Columbia, NYU, Stanford, Michigan and Penn. Sonnenscheinís Chicago office also looks at regional powers such as University of Chicago and Northwestern."

I laughed.




That's bc you're a "superstar."

Also, does anyone have a link to charts showing bonuses at various firms?   I'm thinking ATL or Infirmation must have something but I can't find anything.     

I think that was the last time I 'cooked.'  Yup, dumping some chips in a bowl and cutting up some carrots definitely counts as cooking.


Fly + Pearl-  I miss you tooooooooooooo.

You greedy bastard!

P.S. I quite like how your picture is still (or is back to) your appetizer spread from early last fall.
