Incoming 1Ls / Re: Berkeley vs. BYU
« on: February 22, 2005, 03:47:04 PM »

I have a definite preference for Boalt over BYU.  That said, the decision isn't as reflexive, as automatic for me as it might seem after a first look.  BYU provides a legal education at a dramatically reduced cost, the alumni network is strong, and I think it might provide an environment for someone like me (non-Mormon and decidedly liberal) that would be intellectually refining. 

As a postscript, should I smoke crack before, after, or while conducting my survey at the Mormon tabernacle?

I've seen alot of stereotyped and extreme reactions to both schools on the LSD boards and xoxohth.  I applied to both and was already accepted into Berkeley.  If it comes down to choosing between the two, what's the popular wisdom?

Maricutie, you were more than helpful.  Craigslist has given me a first look at what's available and the site for parents will help me parent myself. 

Anyone have any other thoughts?  Has everything already been said?

First thanks have to go to Bobo.  Nice to know that a man, a woman, and a cat can make it in the big city. 

Maricutie, I've followed your prolific postings on the various boards.  So, belated congratulations on getting into Stanford.  And, of course, thanks for the advice.

Any suggestions on looking in Oakland?  A rundown of areas near BART?  It's been a while since I've been to San Francisco (and that as a visitor/sojourner of, at most, a few weeks) and, though I will be getting a map from the transit authority, it is nice to hear a rundown from those with firsthand experience. 

Again, thanks all.

Does anybody have any insight into the housing situation in and around Berkeley?  Is the waitlist interminably long for university-owned housing?  If I go off-campus, do I have to resign myself to a dank, small and overpriced place?  Is any search best done through the campus-sponsored, pay search engine?

Just a little about me: my move is complicated because I'm married.  I'm not really willing to leave my wife and my cat behind.  If there's anyone else that's been through the search for housing for two (and a half), I'd be happy to hear from you.  (Although, I would love to hear from singles too)

Congrats.  I just got in myself.  It does feel good after all the time reading boards about so-and-so going here or there.
