If you are going to be taking out loans to pay for school, you may want to also consider attending one of your less expensive options. It will be a lot easier to decide to take out loans for law school if you don't have 80K in debt from undergrad hanging over your head.

HA! Yes! Hilarious!

Excellent! Should be a good day.  :)

And yes, blossoms are still out. The festival was last weekend but I think there will still be things tomorrow as well. If you wanna avoid crowds, I like them better at night anyway!

Haha.. we should propose this to law schools.

On a different note.. what are you wearing to ASD? I was just going to go with nice jeans, flats, and a sweater... I've seen other threads that say that is fine. Agreed?

Don't you wish you could specify who got your scholarship/spot at the school? LSD could become such a happy place of sharing and tenderness.

Beyond the partying issue, which may or not be a problem depending on the people (I too was in Greek life and never partied at home), I think the difference in free-time/motivation could be an issue. Some of my undergrad friends spend their days playing Wii and watching TV when they aren't in class. However, I have other friends who are probably busier than most law students, juggling internships, babysitting, class, and a semblance of a social life. It definitely depends on the situation, but if you are thinking of living with undergrads, or for that matter, any non-law or grad student, that you don't already know, I would just assume that they will be the very worst sort of roommate and think of how you would deal with that. If you think you can, awesome! It would just be awful to have your 1L grades suffer because of factors beyond your control.

Also, consider living by yourself.  Even nice, sane, non-rowdy 9-5ers will still be hanging around the house when you need to quietly study or write.

I have considered living alone, but since I will likely be in DC, that would be wayyyy more expensive. I think it depends on your situation and what sort of environment you need to get work done. As long as I don't have to hear the sounds of a raging kegger in the next room at 11 pm on a Monday, I think I'll be fine. :)

i agree that it depends on you study habits. but i would spend the extra for my own place - i know it will pay off when i get good grades from all that extra studying and land a biglaw job.

Sounds like you're pretty set then. :)

Regardless of personal study habits though, I agree that living with/among undergrads would be a baaaaaad decision.

It totally will. I live in DC now so if you have any specific questions, PM me. I am an expert apartment hunter.  :)
