It's nice to see some people finally talking about Villanova.  I was beginning to wonder if there was anyone else out there.  Where is everyone moving from?  How different is the area from your hometown?  What made you choose 'Nova?  Just curious.  Looking for some activity on the Villanova posts...

i'm originally from Hazleton, PA (pocono mountains) but have spent the last 4 years in New Orleans, LA... I picked Villanova because I want to end up in the Northeast, most likely in PA.  It also doesn't hurt that they're the best school I got into.  Obviously nothing compares to New Orleans, but, as much as I love it down here, I'll be happy to get back up north to a normal city (and a slightly more serious academic environment than at Tulane... if you're even the least bit prone to slacking, the tulane black hole will suck you right in... take my word for it).  It wlil also nice to be only 2 hours away from mom and pop (they're pretty excited anyway, which works to my advantage in the long run as well)...

Anyone else really stoked about Villanova hoops next year? Im going to try and make it to as many games as I can.  How hard is it to get tickets?

I'm with you on the hoops team. They are going to be really good. I don't know how hard it is to get tickets, but I bet it's doable. And I'm told they play most of they're home games at the arena on campus.

Ya, i'm excited to go to a school that is actually good at sports.  (my high school... pathetic.  tulane... pretty sad as well, except baseball)

where are the rest of you goin to nova planning on living?

The only good Dell is a dead Dell. 

Maybe they are ok.  Who knows but that "dude, you're getting a Dell" kid needs to be killed.


He got arrested for marijuana possession in NYC a couple years ago.  Maybe he got raped in prison...?

Yeah, I wouldn't be so quick to bash the Center City commute to Nova by train.  Granted I'm speaking from four years during high school of having either an hour and a half or hour commute into New York City each day by either subway, bus, ferry or some combination of those forms of transportation for high school.  At least with trains your commute can be somewhat productive and you have a good chance of the commute being fairly the same amount of time every day whereas with driving you never really know... so you need to leave yourself a little extra time with the driving.

King of Prussia is shopping mecca.  2nd largest mall in America (second to the one in the midwest with a friggin amusement park in it), you can't go wrong.

Conshy is the closest "hip" place to live relative to Villanova.  I'd say the drive is 15-20 min?  Not really sure on that estimate.

thats interesting, i had no idea conshy was considered a hot spot now.  you can see new buildings coming up from the highway, but at first glance it looked like it'd have roughly the same ambiance as actually living in a corporate park.  i maintain my manayunk recommendation, but im interested to here more about whats going on in conshy...  (and yes conshy is closer to nova, just one exit on the blue route, and against rush hour traffic)

I am most likely going to be attending Villanova this coming fall, and I wanted to start a thread discussing anything and everything about the school.  ;D 

BTW, do you know how their workout facilities are?  good? bad? none?  :)

I'm 100% Villanova this fall.  I'm living in Manayunk with one of my good friends from high school (who is in grad school for comm/media @ temple)... Manayunk is a good halfway point between our respective schools, and I would consider it to be the ideal spot to live in.  Our apartment is in a new building (converted textile mill) 2 blocks off main st (full of bars, restaurants, shops, and yes i think i saw 3 or 4 different gyms).  The area is known as the scene for "young professionals", or something...  It's technically 6 miles from the law school, but that 6 miles could bef hell if you take the highway (especially the 2.5 thats on the Schuylkill expy), but since I grew up in lower merion, hopefully I can remember the back roads and it wont be so bad.  I wouldnt want to live in the suburbs, but didn't want to be in center city (as previous poster stated, such an idea would be INSANE), so Manayunk was the choice for me.  I also found nice apartments available in Conshohocken, which has a few new buildings coming up and is closer to 'Nova, but not as cool of an area as Manayunk.  I can give you building names if you want, for either area, as I was just up there a couple weekends ago to make my final decision.  Hope this helps...

I am not ADD (diagnosed, anyway) and don't normally take any sort of study drug.

I took 3 diagnostics before the LSAT.  My two normal (ie not adderalling) scores were 156 and 157.  I then took a diagnostic on a pill (forget what exactly) and got a 159.  So I drew the natural conclusion and took one before the big show and got my best score yet, a 160.  Can't conclusively say whether or not there's a correlation, but I think it definately helped me concentrate more and stick with it throughout.  4 hours of testing can be a pretty mentally draining experience, so I think overall it helped to be on something to keep me focused and working quickly.  Definately helps if you have time issues, too, but might preclude you from thinking something through as much as you should. 

I guess my point is you should try it for a diagnostic and see how you do.  For me, it seems to have helped.
