A few things:
I hope there is no class on Friday.
Did everyone get this LAP Summer Workshop thing? What is it? Do I want to even do it?
It is lame that we are "forbidden" to work during 1L. It would have been nice to work, if only for 5-10 hours.

By no means is this definitive, but check it out. On the Fall 2005 schedule there are NO classes on Fridays. Well, that is, with the exception of some random Lawyer Bargaining class that we wouldn't be taking anyway.http://www.wcl.american.edu/registrar/coursesapp/searchcourse2.cfm?time=fall_2005
This doesn't say anything about our schedules, but maybe, going by this, they just don't like to have class on Friday.

Thanks for the info!

I might be remembering this wrong, but I think I asked that on my tour and classes start about 10 and I don't think there are any classes on Fridays.
Start at 10? None of Fridays? Nice!

The problem I now have is attempting to decide between places. All of my choices will probably change a million times from now until I go. I'd really like to go to Turkey next summer though. And somewhere for a semester, and maybe an international externship or something. Any places you have in mind?

I seem to have gone crazy posting on here, but I still have a bunch of questions.
Here's one, if anyone is interested.
Is anyone here planning to study abroad? I just wanted to get some ideas on the matter and what not.

Foggy Bottom? That is so cute, I have to live there now. Yeah my goal is to live in walking distance. At the most 20 minutes away, but I would prefer much closer. I don't know if the Georgetown area would totally qualify. I'm thinking though if I were close by but not necassarily in walking distance I might be a lot better off taking the bus because taking the metro to take a bus could really drag out the commute time.
Not only does it have a cute name, but it is a decent area. Actually, that is where GW is. If you don't want more than a twenty minute commute, you probably could not live more than two metro stops away from AU, in either direction.http://www.wmata.com/metrorail/systemmap.cfm
That is, of course, if you are just planning on taking the metro. Personally, I would prefer to live on the DC side versus the MD side. Although, rent will be cheaper the further into MD you go. I don't know much about the bus routes, so I can't help you there.

I would say the American portal and craigslist are probably the best ways to find a place to live,(and maybe some local papers) if you would like to live with someone; that is outside of knowing people who are looking for roommates.
If anyone is thinking about living in Georgetown -- Allison might have mentioned something about it -- you might want to keep in mind is that it has no metrostop. The closest stops are Foggy Bottom and Rosslyn. Getting to class would then be a short trek.

Well the only reason I am starting so early is because I don't have much else to do. Also, I don't live too far from DC, relatively speaking. I go down there a few times throughout the year to see friends anyway.
That said it might not be a bad idea to go to DC a bit earlier, prior to July like you said, just to check things out and get a feel for the city before you decide on where to live. I know I found a site with plenty of listings on American's website. It might have been through their web portal, or whatever that thing was they gave a password for. There seemed to be a decent amount of stuff on there.
