Listen, here's the deal.  I've had this one specific experience.   :P

Let us emphasize that someone, in this very thread, offered to cross their balls.

Probably dinner.

Does anyone on this board know if it is possible to rent a vehicle from any of the major companies with a tow hitch? If so that could save a LOT of money as renting a large U-haul (boo-hiss) from Boston to New Orleans is between 2-3 K while renting an equivlent trailer is roughly $675

uhaul, budget, and penske all have the car dolly or car carrier.  or are you asking about towing a trailer with a rented vehicle?  if the latter, sorry, i don't know.

I prefer Penske to the other companies, though a well-crafter complaint letter goes a long way at Uhaul(I received a refund of $400, plus hotel and food expenses on a $1200 rental last year).

Does anyone know of anyone else that has received a private loan with a cosigner?  If I need anything beyond the guaranteed fedaid, I will need to do this.

Pittsburgh fits all of your criteria except getting a job in Southern CA. It's a fun school in a city with lots of universities.  it is insanely cheap to live there without being a nasty ghetto (relatedly, it's the safest large city in the US).  there are also plenty of big and midsize law firm job prospects. It's certainly possible to take a degree from Pitt to CA, but it will take a lot of legwork.  This, at least, is what Pitt grads working in CA report (I am heading to Pitt, but interested someday in living/working in the west). 

FWIW, people on law school boards tend to focus on placement in biglaw firms, and placement in one's first job.  While both are important areas to focus on, most legal employment is NOT in biglaw.  If you can't get a job in CA from a good school out of the area initially, this is not an indication that you simply can't get a job in CA. 

  If you are dead set on SoCal as soon as possible, though, I would recommend USD before the other two.

I had heard of it, but I was just about to post how it won the debate, no matter what the position defended.  Using jejune is comparable to saying "no offense, but."  Whatever follows (be it logically or however else) is acceptable.

A decent band is named jejune.  or am I think of the jazz june?  or both?

Choosing the Right Law School / Re: Tulane Vs. Pittsburgh

Oh, another nice thing to say about Tulane: I have never been anywhere in my life where I saw more beautiful females.  If you spit, there is a 76% chance you will hit a beautiful female.  But why would you ever do that?

I actually went to the Enterprise in oakland.  they were great, because they waived my fee too, since I was renting for 2 weeks.
