just to update this thread for all people still looking for housing for villanova...

i just moved into my new apt this past weekend, in a building in Manayunk called the lofts at chimney hill ( for the property mgrs site).  the apartment and the building are both great and i would highly recommend them.  the office has been helpful and friendly (a huge shock to me after having a new orleans slumlord to answer to for the last three years), but the best part about this building is the people... most of the building seems to be under the age of 25.  ive seen a few villanova law license plate frames in the lot, as well as tags/frames/etc from other grad schools in the area, and a few alumni frames... most of the people i've meet seem to be fresh out of college and working around philly.  basically what it comes down to is that this place is nice, quiet on the weekdays, and pretty fun on the weekends.  so for those of you who are worried about missing college a little too much (i know i was), you can still find a social scene on friday, but dont worry about it getting too loud during the week either.  pretty great in my opinion, and i just thought i'd share that with yall

also, the previous occupants left behind a new queen bed frame in its original packaging.  i dont need it, and neither does my roomate.  if any future/current philly area law students are in need, its yours.

thanks, now i'm no longer worried about competing against "the best and the brightest" in law school
lets hope all of my future classmates are busy writing parody songs instead of briefing cases and the like... keep it up

Your 2.73 GPA clearly indicates you are of above average intelligence.  Certainly above that of the OP.  Please feel free to insert information at this time regarding how you had more fun than I did, went to a harder school, had a difficult major, etc.

you LSD people are #@!**n great

PS i love what this board does with the bad words
PPS how's that socialist revolution of yours working out? well?

caught trey in nola for the superjam and the jazzfest day show, both we're rockin.. i'll be catching the summer tour once i'm back up in PA (they're even playing near my hometown in scranton, which i hope to make it up for)

and regarding my impressions on brooklyn, i'm pretty confused.  i got this call, and two of my friends (who are both more qualified than me, grades/lsat/etc) have heard nothing 'since the day all three of us received our deferral letters back in march.  (Same day)   all in all, i think brooklyn is very shady in general with this admissions cycle and it has certainly helped me to feel better about my decision.

where do you think you will be headed?

PS I think no sleep till manayunk is a little better than no sleep till ardmore

hey divided, good choice... congrats and good luck... by the way, did you catch any trey shows this last tour?  I was at both hammersteins..

for those waiting on brooklyn, what is everybodys interpretation of Brooklyns offers so far this cycle?  Do you think they have a lot of room, more room than in the past, less, etc?  I was just changed from deferred to waitlisted, but I see from lsn that people have been accepted to the PT position with lower numbers than I have, so it is good that they are really looking at the applciation package at this stage... any thoughts on the bls process and my chances particuarly are greatly appreciated..

thirsty thursdays at zephyr field are fun.  unfortuantely i was very busy this weekend and did not see this message until now -- thanks for the offer though!!   (it was graduation weekend, the entire family came down, pretty intense)

interesting reading about 'nova.  i just got on the waitlist after months of hearing nothing.  it said they take people off the WL each year but i'm not getting my hopes up.  i honestly don't even know if law school is worth leaving a good job for quite yet.  i'm in the field i want to be in (sports) with co-workers that are like family. 

regardless, i'd like to get in and at least have the choice.  good luck to you guys there if it doesn't happen for me.  i have a couple of life-long buddies (one will be a penn 3L and one is a wharton grad that stuck around there for work) so the area is enticing.  my gf has an aunt and uncle in villanova as well. 

dividedsky, if you're gonna be in nola and want to head out to a zephyrs game with some friends...PM me.  I'll leave you tix at will call.  thirsty thursday $1 beers and there's some decent talent most of the time.

Go to Brooklyn.  You would have your own Beastie Boy theme song for life.

No one sings about the Mainline.


It's hard to argue with this line of reasoning.

yeah thats the best argument i see anyway  ;)
i've decided to stick with nova (have a pretty good plan in order, and i love philly anyway)
thanks everyone for your input!

They sent me a strange and confusing email this morning saying basically "this is not an offer of admission" but rather trying to gague my potential interest in being part time at brooklyn.  Phone call followed two hours later, clarifying that it was, in fact, an offer of admission to part time.

In the email it stated that an acceptance packet would be sent if and only if I responded indicating my interest in part time by monday.  However, the nice lady on the phone made it sound more like they want an actual decision by monday.  Pretty intense, but i guess thats just the NY way...

Ok, so basically for the last month or so i've been 100% villanova.  have an apartment lined up with my best friend from high school (in grad school at temple), and a bunch of friends and family in the area.  then today i get off brooklyn's waitlist.  my best friend from college is going to brooklyn, living in the new dorm.   there is still space in the new dorm.

acceptance at brooklyn is only PT, evening.  'nova is FT day.  i'm coming right from undergrad, and don't plan on working.  what should i do?

i'm living with a good friend from high school who is in grad school for film at Temple across town... (our apt in Manayunk is basically halfway between our respective schools).   i would highly recommend living with someone else -- living alone can be lonely and depressing (or so i'd imagine, but then again i'm a pretty social person), and you definately will save money that way too.  just make sure its someone who will be respectful so that your studies (and sleep patterns) are undisturbed. 

Hi all!
I wasn't sure if I should be posting things in the Villanova section of the "Students & Graduates" board or here...  I already posted something regarding apartment hunting, cuz I'm not sure if it's worth living alone for around $1000/mo. or living with a roommate for half the price.  What do you guys think?   :)
