Good, less socially awkward law students is always a great thing :)

Follow that list and you will hate your life.  And subsequently, I doubt many people will want to be pulled into your black hole of depression that will ensue.

Trust me on this - it's important to be social.  I'm social, and I didn't fail out.  And I don't go to Cooley.

Top 3 Things To Do:

1.  Get involved in a relationship with another law student.  Law school was my first chance to date someone truly brilliant.

2.  Get your resume and job materials out early.  Early means before December 31.

3.  Go out and socialize.  I go out 4 nights a week.  You can find time for it, so do it.  This can be the best time of your life if your schedule correctly.

Top 3 Things Not To Do:

1. Given #1 in top 3 things to do above, don't *&^% where you eat.  Date one person at most from school, don't sleep around with other students.

2. Don't psych yourself out that law school is really hard.  Most people who find school unbearably difficult don't have a good work ethic or majored in underwater basketweaving in undergrad.

3.  Don't stop working out or sacrifice your health.  I know alot of people who think they are too busy to go to the gym, which downgrades their quality of life, makes them more tired and grumpy, etc.  Healthy Body, Healthy mind - its important.

That is all.

Free advice - the summer reading list is an absolute waste of your time.  I promise you will be far more benefitted by making yourself happy by getting drunk / taking a nap / hooking up than wasting your time stressing this soon.

I'll be a 2L at BC.  It's a great school, I don't really know what I would prefer over it in terms of environment and people.  It seems like the percentage of douchebags at BC is less than at some of the other schools I've been too.  There are still hyper-pretentious people and annoying gunners, but people don't really cut them much slack for disturbing the cooperative environment.

Hey There,

I just finished 1L year at BC and have a place to rent for the upcoming school year.  I bought it last year and still own it, but decided to move into the Prudential Center with some friends for this year because it's nice to be financially irresponsible :)  So, I'm looking to rent it out to some responsible law school people.  It's a 2 Bedroom, 1 Bath in Allston right near the T to BC.  It was recently renovated and has a massive deck.  The rent includes all heat, hot water and garbage and is only $1600.  It's also a second floor unit on a quiet residential street, so it was fine for all my studying.  I pretty much just worked from home and avoided the library since my pl,ace was quiet enough, and I did pretty well overall so avoiding the library isn't all bad :)  I'll be at the housing fair tomorrow to talk with people about it.  I've had some people interested in renting, but I'd really rather give it to a 1L group than some randoms off the street.  If your interested in seeing it, shoot me a PM or if you're at the housing fair I'll see you tomorrow.

The atmosphere is definately better at BC.  BU, being such a distributed campus (or at least more so than BC) doesn't have the same tight-knit feel.

BC is pretty damn stingy with their money.  I'm a 1L, last year they gave me 18K also.  I asked for more money, and recieved a prompt no within the same hour I emailed the letter.

With that said, BC's a great school, and I love it dearly.

I'm a 1L at BC and I live in pretty much the sweetest condo ever (right off the green line, 10 min total to BC or BU campus).  I'm moving out of the place I'm in right now to stay with some people in the Prudential Center downtown, but I can definately put anyone in touch with my landlord for the unit if they're interested.  It's a recently renovated 2 bedroom in Allston, right by Harvard and Commonwealth Ave (read: all the fun).

If you're interested, fire me a personal message or an email.


I'm a 1L at Boston College.  I made the choice to come here over Duke because BC gave me 16k a year.  It's the best decision I've ever made.  I took the extra savings and bought a condo, which has appreciated enough in the first 7 months to cover my undergrad debt.

In all honesty, the best advice is this: Save money IF the school you will be going to is in an area where you want to work.  You will most likely end up working where you go to school, unless you go to a school such as Duke that ships their kids off to NYC / Boston / Etc.

Hope that helps.
