I've found some really nice and affordable 3-4 bedroom houses 5-10 mins from Hofstra Law in Hempstead.  What's the best way to find some other incoming 1L's to room with?

Thanks!!

Although I haven't narrowed down where I'm going next year, I'm looking at apartments in the cities that I'll most likely end up in.

As of right now, it's looking like Los Angeles, Long Island, or staying in Gainesville.  I probably would move in with fraternity brothers in a small house near the law school if I stay in Gainesville.

But what's your general suggestions?...Should I live alone?  Should I live with a few other 1L's from the same school?  Or should I just live with random people?

I've gotten so accustomed to undergrad and living with no one but fraternity brothers, so it's a little bit of a culture shock for me.

Thanks!

Law School Applications / Schools that take a long time to reach a decision
« on: February 20, 2009, 02:12:35 PM »
I applied to a lot of schools and there are still 8 of them that I haven't heard from.  I sent in my apps in late December and they were complete in early October.  It is now late February and I'm getting a little impatient.

What does it mean when schools take a long time?  Does it mean that they are overloaded with apps or are they just taking a long time with my file?

I have a very borderline application when it comes to these schools, so does anyone have any advice?

The schools are:
Arizona
UF
Loyola (L.A.)
Whittier
Southwestern
Notre Dame
FSU
UC Irvine

Thanks!

I have been rolling a few things around in my head for topics for my PS.  I want to concentrate on entertainment law and I'm doing Public Relations for undergrad.

My ideas:

- Interest in copyright law

- My experiences in the Hurricane Katrina clean-up and wanting to help people

- My William Morris internship and what it's taught me

- The importance for there to be people in the world to know the law and to utilize it to uphold the rights of the country and its citizens


I really don't know what direction to go in since entertainment law isn't really an intellectual area as tax law is, or criminal law, environmental law, etc.

I could really use some insight.  Thanks!

Law School Applications / UCLA - does Early Decision help at all?
« on: June 17, 2008, 10:47:46 PM »
I know they say that it gives no advantage for students who apply to UCLA Law in the Early Decision program, but does it give anyone who is competitive any better or a chance of getting in?  It's my first choice school and I'm dying to get in.
