One of the student groups actually held a lunch lecture on homebrewing a couple of weeks ago. The guy who lead the session is an LSD veteran, too.

Go to Michigan. Just visit it, you'll understand immediately.

Why is this?  What is so special about Ann Arbor that its beauty will sway the decision?

It cannot be explained in words.

Heh, March 20 is my brother's birthday too :)

Dominic's is closed during the winter, but I believe it reopens after spring break (which was last week). Don't know if it is actually open yet, but I know it was open during Preview weekend last year (third weekend of March).

Alternative loans or Grad PLUS will cover the rest of your cost of attendance. Usually Grad PLUS is better than private loans unless you have good and established credit. (and since Michigan is a direct lending school, our interest rate is a bit lower for Grad PLUS for some reason)

I can verify that Dominick's is now open. Enjoyed the season's first sangria just today.

I'm actually looking for some new roommates. It's a great place, tons of parking, pet friendly, fenced backyard, various other perks. It has a great kitchen (with full butcher-block counter-tops) which I keep tolerably well-appointed (I'm a kitchen dabbler).

It's rented by a single-property owner who's a fantastic landlord.

He has a website set up for the place: http://www.brarrentals.com/index.html

Note: the furnishings that appear in these pictures are totally inferior to the setup I have going on here now.

Also, as long as I'm staying, the rent is $100 or more LESS than that posted on the site.

It's about a 20-minute walk, door-to-door, from the law school. I walk it regularly, but there's also easy bus service for crappy weather.

If anybody's interested, just message me and I'll be happy to answer any questions, etc.

PBJT, go piss on a spark plug.

we get it, Michigan is a great school. it's a solid mid-T14 school that obviously has good QOL and amazing PR. That's where it starts, and that's where it stops. Now please, stop.

This isn't about Michigan.  This is about you.  I don't know how to make it any more clear.

what's wrong with me?

tL: your numbers are good enough for Chicago and Columbia.  it's really only a matter of time before you get in.

I'd been wondering what happened to Judge Smails...

You should seriously tell Michigan about the scholarship.

Dude, I seriously think I'm blacklisted or something.  I'm afraid to call.  Plus I wouldn't really know how to bring it up or what to say.

Although the fact that you want Michigan because you're a tree-hugging liberal has me slightly concerned about how I'll fit in at Michigan.  Then again, I'm a gay conservative, so I don't really fit in anywhere.

Just from what I hear, Charlottesville and UVa aren't the most tolerant places on Earth.  They aren't too fond of the gays and the blacks. If I have to put up with the bigotry, then it would be ok, because it would be worth getting the degree and a good job. 

ETA: I don't think Michigan/Ann Arbor will be hostile to conservatives.


UVA is not conservative. It's just not NYU or Berkeley liberal either. Albemarle County voted 51-48% for Kerry in 2004. The City of Charlottesville voted 72-27% for Kerry in 2004. Washnetaw County, where I believe Ann Arbor is located, voted for Kerry 63-36% in 2004. Don't confuse the Charlottesville area of VA with Southwest Virginia.

As a minority, I would feel most comfortable in a NYU/Berkeley type environment.  While I'm sure UVa isn't the "deep" south, I've heard some horror stories that make me a little uncomfortable.

I'd wager the only person who's blacklisted on this board is PBJT. He's what Dean Z calls an admissions "oops". She's fantastic at her job, but nobody's perfect.

faculty, yes; students, mostly, although i don't know how cool the students seem to you. like any law school there are people who seem like they were socialized among wolves (really lame wolves), but generally speaking the people here are fantastic.

I resemble that remark.



Ha! No, you don't. 

Haha, no worries, I take a measure of pride in being poorly housebroken.


Whoa! Didn't recognize you, Mickey.  I thought you were MoniLi or wahtever she calls herself now for a minute. ;)

Reasonable mistake... Wrong wiry irish pugilist. :-)
