Catholic University of America / Re: One L next year

One thing about roommates... there's always the library!  Just kidding.  But I think I'll put a small blanket in my locker anyway for the times when I just have to crash for an hour or else...  :P  From what ninalyn posted it looks like the Roommate Name Exchange could at least help JManning avoid (b) type people.  I wonder if there is some online equivalent of eHarmony (or similar) for roommate matching.

:poke: Hi ninalyn!  ;D

They're supposed to cover housing on Saturday afternoon... hopefully they'll address the question then (if you don't get a chance to talk to them beforehand).

(I'm the same rhapsody as on the pre-law board.)

I sent in a short letter just saying that I formally accept their offer, and thanks for the scholarship cause that's the reason I'm going!

Maybe you should call the admissions office and ask them what their policy is.  They will probably still require at least the first deposit, though.

Wow, 19 years in Catholic schools?! :o  I have never attended one before so it was a little strange for me to walk around the classrooms the other day and see Jesus on the cross everywhere.  I guess it is just a different focus from what I'm used to. ;)

I don't know where all the good places to live are off-campus, but a friend of mine just got her master's from Catholic last spring, and she shared a house with other students in Hyattsville.  I could ask her for more info if that would be helpful to you.

You're not!   :D

I'll be a 1L this fall at Catholic as well.  I actually just spent the afternoon there today, just walking around the law school building (hadn't visited before).  I spent about an hour talking with a 2004 graduate who was working at the library desk... she was quite enthusiastic about Catholic and the community there compared to other D.C. schools.

I won't be living on campus; I'll be commuting from Howard County, as we (my husband and I) already have a house there close to his work.

Where are you from?

P.S.  I should add:  I graduated UG in 2002, worked full time for 2 years, then Ruth was born, I took 3 months maternity leave and have been working from home part time since then.  Staying home is wonderful, and I have loved seeing her grow so much every day.  She'll be in daycare this August, right after she turns 1, and in a way I feel relieved at the prospect -- I know I will find a great place for her, and I think she will have a lot of fun.  Plus, the milestones come more slowly after the first year (as far as I understand).  But when we have our second, I want to be able to stay home with him/her like I have with Ruth -- and that wouldn't be possible if we had another during law school.  So, we decided to wait.

My daughter is 7 1/2 months old, and I'm only 24.  I'll be a 1L this fall.  While my husband and I don't want to wait too many years to have another baby, from how hard the first few months were, there's no way I could do as well as I would like in law school with a newborn.  Pregnancy itself is tough -- the first three months I was tired all the time; second trimester was great, but at the end of it I developed gestational diabetes, and that required all kinds of extra doctors' appointments.  Plus, there was iron deficiency that brought on extra fatigue.  Knowing now how my body took to pregnancy, we've decided we'll wait until probably the fall of 3L to get pregnant again, and I will just delay starting full-time work after graduation.  Just some advice from a new mommy... there's a lot to consider!  I wish you the best.
