Sunset and Danno, I am in the same boat as both of you. I am headed to USD if they don't give me anything more than loans.

So it is no longer Sonel Shropshire? :'( I was so looking forward to meeting him....

Sonel Shropshire (sp?) is the ASSISTANT Dean of Admissions. I think he'll still be there.

Loyola Law School in Los Angeles

I didn't study at all between my first and my second LSAT. I knew the first one I bombed because I made myself sick with stress and lack of sleep. I was just plain burned out. So I took the second one with no prep (except for one logic game I did that morning just to make sure I still knew how to do those, lol).

I'm not going to be able to visit LLS...can anyone tell me whether they have an on-campus gym? Also, are there any social events such as Bar Review, etc? Or, are people super concerned about getting home asap because traffic sucks and everyone has a long commute? thanks

There is no on-campus gym but you get privileges at the gym on the undergrad campus, which isn't nearby. It's on the other side of town. It'd only be helpful if you plan on living in the area of the undergrad.

I will most likely be living at home. Saving not only the rent but all the little stuff adds up a lot (food, laundry, utilities, less insurance, but over 3 years it'd be surprisingly signficant). When you include rent, I think I'll save close to 10K a year, or 30K total.

I figure I'm not going to be having a heck of a lot of fun in LS whether I'm at home or not but I'll sure as heck be having a lot more fun after LS if my debt is 30K much lighter.

My commute will be only about 20 mins though. I can see where the 1+ hr thing each way would be very tough.

Compare that to gas which would probably be about $33/week, let's say for 10 months, that's $1320. Not including parking pass that is already $600+. I think the train is the way to go.

Text-to-speech software: basically takes text in your computer and reads it out to you through a computerized voice. Unfortunately not that portable for actual books because you'd have to scan in the books, convert it to text via another software like omnipage and then convert it to speech, record it and burn onto a cd and then use that CD.

JLA - I used to listen to books on tape during my commute. I also vote for a text-to-speech software for law casebooks.

For Loyola LA people use the metro to get to and from O.C. to Loyola. Apparently there is a shuttle that takes you from the train station to campus. You should ask the school about that because even the Dean of Career Services uses the train and shuttle (but from a different direction). I wouldn't drive if you can avoid it. I did that for 3 months for an internship and even using the 405, it sucked.

Goodness, I only recognized two names in the last two pages of this thread.

What sucked you off the face of the planet these last few weeks? LOL. Congrats on USC, btw :)
