Acceptances, Denials, and Waitlists / Re: On hold at Chicago
« on: April 02, 2005, 05:52:59 AM »
I'm in Georgia and my hold letter did give the option for an interview- my guess is that the date of the letters has something to do with it.  I was in the first round of holds, so perhaps that is the reason.

Incoming 1Ls / Re: Going to Columbia?
« on: April 02, 2005, 05:41:48 AM »
I'm still debating about whether to go to Columbia or not. We'd be coming from out of state (and don't know anyone in NYC) and wouldn't be eligible for the subsidized housing offered by the school (because we have 3 pets that we can't leave behind). Does anyone have any general advice on off-campus housing? Do most landlords have income requirements, even for students? About what percentage of apartments allow pets? How long will it take to find a place and where would be our best bet?

Kami- you and I are in a very similar position!  I would love any info if you've found any.  This is one hesitancy I have with CLS, I feel comfortable with finding off-campus housing at other schools, but not really with CLS.  Any help?

Incoming 1Ls / Re: Girls, Let's Talk Laptop Bags

What great resources!  Thanks!  I am sort of leaning to a backpack since I MAY be biking to school some... but I love the totes.

Do you mind if I highjack the thread for a sec and talk about laptops themselves??  I am clueless in that dept- what do you all recommend?  I definitely want somethine smalle but powerful.  How did you all choose yours?

I agree!  They need a good reality check!

I found those other threads after I posted... but they're all in the wrong place anyway, buncha ttt's. ::)

Choosing the Right Law School / new rankings

have you all completely missed the news on xoxo.. or am i missing the posting about it here?

You have to be careful in Athens about living in completely undergrad apartments.  No offence if any of you all are undergrads here now, but as a grad student at UGA, I chose to look specifically for a place geared toward the young professional.  I live in a gated apartment complex that is slightly more expensive, but it is also a more mature croud- very quiet, no parties, etc.  I am glad I paid more, but am happy where I am!

We came to Athens in May to find an apt. and there were a couple of complexes that were full by then.
