Transferring / Re: BC
« on: July 05, 2008, 12:21:51 PM »
Difficult from what I've seen. The year I applied to transfer, a guy from Northeastern could not make it out because his written evals came late, most of the transfer schools had filled up many spots, AND schools strongly prefer to see a class rank / gpa.

how easy is it for you to transfer when you dont have a class rank or gpa?

I actually have no idea.  I met with a Dean to get my evals out sooner rather than later, and she really was helpful.  I know another student who transferred out this year (to BC).  At the beginning of the summer, I met someone who had graduated from NUSL (c/o 2007), and he told me that it was impossible to transfer out (he had applied to transfer to BC/BU).  I've heard of one other student transferring to BC in the past.

I imagine that BC and BU are fairly familiar with NUSL's evaluation process and can look past it a bit more than other schools.

\Hey, anyone familiar with the DC area? Any suggestions on where to live? I will be living with my fiance, or I guess by then he will be my husband, wierd...Anyway, so our budget is around $1200. We don't need anything fancy, we have lived in extremely small spaces before. We also really wan to live in DC, no VA or MD.

Places I have heard are Adams Morgan, Dupont Circle, Eastern Market, Columbia Heights and if I can give only my arm and leg, Foggy Bottom.

Any suggestions are welcome and much appreciated!   :)

You may want to try the Logan/Thomas Circle Area (around MacPherson Square on the orange/blue lines).  MacPherson Square is two stops away from Foggy Bottom on the metro, so it wouldn't take long for you to get there.  Try the Belvedere there -- it's around $1300 for a one bedroom.

Bernstein Management seems to deal mainly with older buildings -- so they're not as nice as nice, new luxury places... I don't know if you're used to Boston-type apartments, but pretty much like that (lead paint, more worn, etc.)  Though, the locations are awesome, they usually have on-site management, and they're generally great about repairs.

I'd give their Admissions Office a call.  This is pretty similar to how I found out about my acceptance to BU (I got an email from Career Services mentioning my admissions).  A quick call to the Admissions Office confirmed that I had been accepted, the career services office just moved faster than the post office.

Tentative congrats!

Congrats!  I transferred there last year, so if you have any questions just let me know


Turn around time was way fast -- about 2 days between receiving transcript and making decision.

Thank you!  You're officially my hero!

What, no option for no GPA/no class rank?

I spoke to them on Monday.  They had received my transcripts a week earlier, and said they would need two more weeks to make a decision.

I had been offered a spot elsewhere, so I'm withdrawing my application.

Incoming 1Ls / Re: Law School business cards
« on: August 27, 2007, 05:20:49 PM »
I'm tagging this because my school gave out business card order forms.

I really wasn't considering it, but sure, why not.  I'm not a big fan of trying to decipher other people's handwriting, and I imagine that most people aren't either.

Please stop posting this everywhere.

Incoming 1Ls / Re: Textbooks
« on: August 26, 2007, 12:35:36 PM » has used books -- you can look in their used textbook section, or you can buy from individual sellers

if you have a barnes and noble membership, you will save 10%

You could also try posting on craigslist or contacting a 2L or 3L from your school (if you contact your school's admissions office and mention that you had a few questions for a 2L or 3L, they would probably hook you up).

I'm ticked at B&N right now because I ordered a book from them b/c it was pretty cheap, it was supposed to ship & get here JUST in time for classes, they emailed me last night to say it's not going to ship until Friday, and when I tried to go online and cancel the order the system timed out.


I take back anything positive I said about Barnes and Noble.

I ordered a book from Barnes and Noble, and they sent me the wrong textbook.  (I ordered Property Law, they sent Modern Family Law.)  I called them to get this fixed, and the first person I spoke to said that they would ship it tomorrow and it would be here in 3-4 days.  Since I need it sooner than that I spoke to the supervisor (who actually looked up whether or not they had it in stock) and apparently, they no longer have the Property Law textbook in stock and they won't ship it for weeks.
