Please help--I'd love advice about where to live in the area.  How is the public transportation into the city?

Visits, Admit Days, and Open Houses / Re: My visit to Pitt...

I went to Pitt as an undergrad and overall had a good experience there.  Oakland is a fantastic place to go to school.  It's such a vibrant area and as a student, I always found something inspiring about the energy of the area.  (Although keep in mind that going out there at night is pretty much just for the young undergrads, we're too old for that area now!)  I wouldn't live in Oakland though either.  It's full of slum lords and loud drunk undergrads.

As far as living goes I'm a huge fan of the east neighborhoods (Shadyside, etc).  In my opinion you should look into Bloomfield.  It's right next to Shadyside and has very cool old homes that are now largely apartments and these are all spacious and well priced.  It's very easy to get to Oakland from there as well.

I agree with Viva also...Pittsburgh is pretty damn dreary in the winter and things will look much brighter in a few weeks.  ;D

Incoming 1Ls / Help!--Financial Aid questions
« on: March 22, 2005, 10:30:32 AM »
I've never applied for financial aid before and I have questions...can someone please help!!??!!

I filed my FASFA awhile ago and I think that is all good.  I checked back in and it said it had been filed and it also gave me an amount(can't think of what it was called).
My question is, what do I do next??  I need the whole cost of school covered.  What if FASFA doesn't cover everything.  When I accept at the school of my choice should I then talk to their financial aid dept?
Basically I've just filed FASFA and I'm not really sure what to do with it or where to go next.
Thanks in advance for your help!

I'm considering applying to Duqusene because It will be difficult for me to relocate and it is close by...

On the other hand, I'm interested in International Law...

A- I don't believe Duq has an international law program.
B- I don't know how many people have heard of Duq outside of Pittsburgh.

Does anyone have any advice for me?

Also, why is Duq (T3) more expensive than Pitt (T1)?

A-Check out their website, I'm not sure but I do think they do have a moderately solid cirriculum of international law classes.
B-I'm not sure about this either.  From what I read T3 and T4 schools don't have tremendous clout outside of their geographical areas. 

I have NO idea why their tuition is more but that is totally CRAZY!

I sent in my app mid October and I called them a few days ago and they said that I am still in review. I have not heard about decisions from them in a few weeks.

I did my app. in mid-October too.  I had a friend who applied a few years ago and didn't get accepted until May!  :o  He applied early like us too....I hope it doesn't take that long.

they accepted me in roughly 3 heartbeats. i'm not exactly sure how that happened, but i'm not complaining. i just wish i would have heard something about money ;)

Congrats on that, you have good numbers so I'm not surprised.  Good luck on the $$$ situation.

Hey all,
Has anyone out there heard from Duquesne?  I know they sent a few acceptances and rejections so far but in looking at LSN it seems to have been awhile since any new decisions have been made.

Hey all,
I was accepted to New England School of Law and have been seriously thinking about relocating to Boston...only, I've never been there!
Any thoughts on whether or not Boston is a gay friendly city???
(I'm assuming it's better than where I live now).  :)

Hey all,
Thanks for the advice about Columbus.  I appreciate the input on the "hot" people, but I was just asking if anyone had good feelings about the city.  ;D (sorry if my thrid grade lingo was confusing).  Again though, thanks for the tips.
