Rejected at Nestrn, real punch in the gut.  I was assuming a WL, had my LOCI ready and everything.  Noone with my stats had been flat out rejected on LSN.... If not Suffolk then retake LSAT

sorry to hear about this...but i am betting suffolk will have mad love for you.

another question which i hope hasn't already been answered -

for bc long is okay to wait on looking for housing? obviously it's too early now, but i have a couple of friends with whom i'd like to live who are looking for jobs. nothing is certain for them, but i'd like to wait and see what happens with them before i start looking for other potential roommates. when did you all look for apartments? and when did everyone move in?

if one were to want to do public interest work after graduation, would it make any sense to try to do one summer at firm to work on one's debt while in law school?

i heart hypos.

I'm so over it. I just want to be done with all the busy work.

(and if LS has a lot of busy work too, don't tell me. You'll only burst my bubble)

yes. i have the most raging senioritis ever. i've been seven and half pages through this ten page paper for about two hours now, because i can't force myself to finish it. thank god there's only two and a half more months until graduation.

i am wondering about this too. i got into bc this week and have no idea if they are going to offer me money (i am inclined to doubt it with a 164/3.6). i would love love love to get money there as i am, like most of us, paying for law school by myself, and looking at huge debt when i graduate...not to mention, i'd really love to do public interest work. all i have to leverage with right now is a scholarship from...ahem. tulane. i love tulane, don't get me wrong, but i'm not sure how much pull that will have with bc. any tips on what i should do/when i should do it? or should i just let it go?

Boston College--it's a T1 law school with amazing post-grad job opportunities, without all the cutthroat competition at the other T1's.

we should start a bc thread at some point for all of us heading there next fall. that would be swell.

bc unless a miracle happens....but i am soo soo excited about bc so i don't particularly care about my extremely unrealistic reaches!!

i can't vouch for the admissions offices at these places but i can tell you a little about the campuses. northeastern's law building is kind of underwhelming, but not as bad as i thought it would be. it had kind of a cozy feeling to it. cozy, but small. the campus is near fenway-ish area, and there are lots of students around. nice gym too. suffolk is right smack downtown near the common, and the building is awesome. brand new. not too friendly feeling, i thought, but definitely nicely re-done. i have friends in ug at bu and harvard. bu has a nice feel to it, similar to northeastern i think,though i can't vouch for their law building. harvard is one of my favorite campuses ever. i mean, it's very ivy league. lots of beautiful academic-looking buildings, and cambridge is a FANTASTIC place to live. one of my absolute favorite parts of boston.
