anyone know of a good rental company to check out? or even good rental sites? i've been looking around on craigs list and, but i don't know where else to really look.

try the sacramento bee's website (sacramento's local paper). their classifieds usually have tons of stuff. good luck!

congrats on finally making your decision, nolegirl! i know you were debating this decision for a long time. i've been going back and forth between tulane and w&l, and ultimately decided to give up tulane, as well. it was such a hard decision! i had a lot of similar feelings as you did. parts of the city were really gorgeous, but it seemed like you really had to search those parts out! the area around the university was definitely nice, the food was great, the people were super cool. i plan on having fun while i'm in school, but maybe i don't need all the distractions that new orleans offers? i almost felt like i was choosing between 2 extremes...lexington is quiet and small, new orleans has so much going on, but i don't know that i would really have the time to enjoy it all as a law student! i ultimately picked w& 3 years, i know won't even look back. i'm sure you'll be happy at wake, it is a great school (as i'm sure you already know :D)

tulane. it was such a hard decision to give up new orleans for middle of nowhere, virginia...but i think i made the right decision.  :-\

i don't live in santa cruz anymore, but i sure do miss it! i had a great time there while i attended ucsc. i totally laughed out loud when i thought of all the goths on pacific ave! last time i was there i noticed they put in this short wrought iron fence around that area in front of new leaf on pacific. now all the hippies who hang out there are fenced in, haha. no one i know is doing the law school thing either, i don't know what i would have done if i hadn't stumbled upon this board. so are you hanging out in sc for the summer until you start school?

Are you guys still in Santa Cruz? I grew up here (but left for school), and am currently sitting around stewing in my own boredom, waiting for the summer to come and go so I can escape again. Of course, nobody I know here is doing the law school thing (The closest I've got is somebody at my work whose "Brother is so totally smart that he goes to Monterey College of Law"). Oh, the angst of it all! I want to dye, dye, dye my hair black and go play Vampire: The Masquerade down on Pacific!!! (Do they even do that any more, or am I just illustrating how long I've been gone?)

i had this question back in fall when i was getting ready to apply, and no one really replied...i don't think there are many banana slugs perusing this site! i was sort of in your situation. not sure when you graduated, but when i was a ucsc student, you could take at least 2/3 or your classes for letter grades and still get a gpa, so that is what i did. i also received evals for all of my classes. i still felt like i was at a disadvantage because i had 1/3 less classes factored into my gpa than other folks, which meant less classes that could have boosted my gpa. anyhow, this cycle turned out just fine for me. if there is one thing i wish i had done differently, it would definitely have been to apply earlier. i think that since you are in a somewhat special situation, it will help you immensely to apply early. i have no idea if schools read your evals. i did call a few schools, and they recommended writing an addendum explaining my school's grading policies, but said it shouldn't hurt me. i would call the schools you are applying to and see what each one prefers. however, to answer your ultimate question, no...i don't think you are at a huge disadvantage. it's almost like you get the privilege of having extra letters of recommendation that other students won't have. your file will be unique in that respect. plus, ucsc is a respected instituion, and its graduates have pursued law school, medical school, and other graduate programs. i'm sure you'll be fine.

Choosing the Right Law School / Re: Car at Stanford???

yes. you definitely need a car.


i told wake i turned them down because they didn't offer me any money. i said i couldn't really justify taking out a ton of loans to attend wake when i could attend another school for much less. (i didn't tell them this, but i also feel like my opportunities are going to be better from the school i chose to attend instead).

i actually got questionnaires in the mail from a couple of schools, as well. i haven't filled them out yet...

oh wait, i forgot about michael jackson's kids. prince and blanket.

poor, poor kids.

can't wait to see what britney spears comes up with.
