I PM-ed someone about an apartment at Louisiana and St. Charles. The answer to that question is: NO NO NO NO NO. Awful area. Sorry if I spoke differently earlier, but I wasn't thinking clearly. Hope you get the message. Can't remember who it was.

Still hope that the "someone" has seen this and isn't renting the St.Ch-L. place on my previous recommendation. EEeeeep ...

Got it - Thanks for the update.  Sorry it took so long to respond. I've had limited internet access the last couple days.  Would you still say that St. Charles & Napoleon is OK?  I'm hoping to find a place this coming weekend.

Glad you got the message. Sorry I misled earlier, sorry I forgot who you were. I'm getting about five or eight of these messages every week. Happy to help, but I'm losing track of who asked about what.

In general, I'd say that St.-Charles-and-Napoleon is an OK-to-excellent neighborhood. A house there is 75% likely to be on a good block and to be a good place to live in terms of general "niceness" of the building, I'm guessing. Of course, you'd have to look in particular.

(By contrast, St.-Charles-and-Louisiana is a below-OK-to-miserable neighborhood. A house there is 90% likely to be on a bad block and about 50% likely to be a "nice" or "nasty" building, and I'd guess that the likelihoods are so poor there's no reason to really spend too much time seeking that diamond in the jungle, unless that kind of deal-hunting is your thang ... for any of a number of good reasons.)

I'd guess by your Nickname here at LSD that you're female, and small. Don't take risks in this city. What are your street-smarts like?

Oh, and sorry to step in, but the area around St. Charles and Napoleon is generally pretty nice. I live on Magazine between Napoleon and Jefferson and I absolutely love my neighborhood.

Hmm... I've got LRW (but that's been up for weeks) and Con Law.
Not to out you, or me, but aren't you in my Con Law with Werhan and Contracts II with Ponoroff?

It is interesting that some people got Contracts II up first and we got Con Law. I thought they really coordinated across the sections to release the grades at the same time. I am guessing they met and made any adjustments before this, so who knows why the scattered posting. 

I suspect the CII and Con Law will be up for everyone today. Property scares me. It can wait.

Well, you're not exactly outing me. I was in your K class (pretty obvious since I wear my Cardinals hat pretty much every Friday morning), but I had Addis for Con Law. I was wondering why some people have certain grades and others don't. One guy I talked to had everything but Property last night at 8.

I'm really not looking forward to Property. I would be fine if they just went ahead and lost that one.

Also, I really hate the "trickling" grades. Is it really so hard to wait to post them until they're sure about all of our classes? I feel like I'm on a freaking emotional roller coaster.

Hmm... I've got LRW (but that's been up for weeks) and Con Law.

God, I need a serious shot of motivation for these write ons.

Don't read all that stuff before school starts. Read it all in October when the fear starts to get to ya. I spent a month in Europe before law school, and it was the best thing I could have done. When my Civ Pro teacher was going on and on and on about Rule 19, I was able to remember that month and it reminded me how amazing life was before I knew anything about the law.

i did a misd. crim court summer internship last summer as a 1L.. (the equiv on the crim side) and I couldnt rec it more...  although prestige wise, its obv not the same as having a federal judge on ur resume... however, these kinds of judges are often less removed from actually practicing law and can be a source of many more contacts for entry level positions...

jus my 2c

I'm meeting with a crim court judge soon about an internship this summer, and I was wondering what kind of work you did when you were an intern.

Alright, so listen to this: As I stated before my Civ Pro grade came back as a C-. Then I spoke to the professor and he just forgot to add some of my points and he told me that my grade would go to a C+. That was a week ago. Today, the grade finally changed online and apparently I have a B! There aren't words to describe the range of emotions I have felt the last few weeks. I just hope the B isn't a mistake, too!

If you have a Mac, you have to save them to your desktop. But I don't think there's any way to open them.

Yay! My C- was actually a C+! There was an addition error. So now my official grades are:
Contracts: A-
Civ Pro: C+
Torts: B-
Criminal Law: A-

Not the greatest, but I'm happier now than I was when I had that C-.
