My brother who was living in NYC took a job a couple years ago in California, he had a week to move out there so really no time to visit.  He found his apartment on Rent.com and then went to apartmentratings.com to see what people were saying about it. 

Also, I found in the Students and Graduates boards a lot of people ask where to live for particular schools, some of the postings are a few years old but I've found them helpful.

Did anyone get accepted to Duquesne?  I got my call last Thursday but I haven't received my admissions packet yet, should I call them to ask about this?  I know people who received their phone calls on Thursday and Friday who have already received their packets.

Rent.com is a good place to start.  Where will you be moving to?

My brother moved from Modesto, CA to Philadelphia in October, he rented a U-Haul trailer and drove his jeep cross country stopping along Route 80 every night, it took him almost 5 days to do it, but it was the most inexpensive way to get him and his car to Philadlephia.  He didn't bring any large furniture with him so when he got here he had to buy a couch and a mattress.

I wasn't sure law school was really what I wanted to do, and after hearing so many horror stories I decided to get a job in the field and figure it out from there.  If you only want to take a year off and explore other options I would call the schools you were accepted to and see if they will allow you to defer a year.

In order to get hired into a big firm from any school right out of school you have to be in the top 10%.  Out of the 4 attorneys I work with that are under 30 they all worked in smaller firms for 2-3 years before coming here... they went to Penn, Villanova, Temple, and GW.

hahahahahahahahahahahahahahah ahahahahaha

hahahahahahahahahahahahahahah ahahahahahahahahahaha

This is patently false. Please ignore any advice from this poster.

This is not false information as I work with these people every day and believe me I have had long discussions with them.  They will tell that yes the prestige of your school do matter, but you also have to excel and you also have to interview.  You can be the smartest person on earth, but if you are as dull as the wall sitting in front of me how are you going to impress anyone.
