General board for soon-to-be 1Ls / Re: housing

as far as i know, gw law school does not provide "on campus" housing in the form of dorms. this makes sense considering they're having problems with zoning and housing their undergraduate population. i think they have agreements with a couple of apartment buildings to provide housing for incoming law students but it's very expensive. but then again, all housing in dc is expensive.


Do you know anything about the Gtown housing situation as well?

Oh OK, my mistake, I thought all law schools did...I thought that's where they got their "Room and Board" expenses.

So does everybody rent? and where do you find out about places in the area to rent? From the admissions office?

Thanks

I'm from Europe so I have very little idea about this, anyway, does anyone know if it's better/cheaper to live on-campus at GULC or in rented housing.

Thanks

Some firms in NY are allowing you to bill probono too, varies firm to firm and of course you have to have a significant amount of actual client-billable hours. Most firms also allow you to bill crap like interviewing potential hires and all that.

Thanks maxim...unfortunately I'm not in the states so there is no local Borders :), also as I'm not in the States there's very little literature to help me pursue a US education

Well, def. not public interest law for me so that won't be it. I just can't decide if in the end, my job/financial prospects wil make the shitload of debt worth it.

Thanks maxim..that's helpful, I'm not really tied to a particular area actually and I'd really like to have as many options as I can when I graduate in terms of location.

Would you take out whatever loans necessary to go to a top 14 school (and this could be like 100%) or would you go to a low tier one to mid-tier two school on a scholarship or with a fair amount of money?

Like bhvexille said, you're best shot is gonna be in house consel for some big organisation, big bucks, not necessarily as much as big law but the quality of life with the 9-5 hrs you'll have.
