General Board / Re: Living in DC

Yeah I'm hoping to live in walking distance as hauling my laptop and tons of heavy books along DC's publich transport everyday doesn't sound really appealling.  Should I maybe make a trip out in May?  Or is that too early.  I'm trying to gauge when everyone sort of gets together and leases are signed for the coming year and things.  I know at my old college it was done pretty early for the following year.

I have a question for current students in DC.  I'm going to American next year and want to live in a group house sort of situation.  I'm goign to American and am hoping to live in the area.  Will everything be gone if I start look in July?  Or is the housing market not too bad. And just generally is living with other law students a good or bad idea?  I was also thinking of maybe getting with some Georgetown studnets because its not too far and it might be nice to meet some people outside of my own law school.

Wow you're starting that early?  Yeah I'm debating whether I should try to fly out for a weekend prior to July, maybe in late May or something to look at places.  I've had so many bad experiences with roommates (I love my current place and don't want to leave) and I don't want to make a mistake with my living situation for my first year of law school.  I may give the school a call and ask for their opinion because I don't want to show up in July with no options other than that unbelievably exspensive student housing they have.

I'm a little worried about finding a place to live.  How is everyone else doing it?  I want to get a place for August 1st, but I'm a little worried a lot of the places will have been taken before that.  Any ideas.  I'm leavin CA around June 30th and will probably spend July in NJ, so I could drive down for a couple days now and then to look at places.  Does anyone know how tight the housing market is?  In my town the summer months can be really rough if you don't get in early.

Yeah they told tht to us at teh admit day.  You can park on the main campus (and it costs a lot) and then walk about 15 minutes your first year, but the parking lot is only big enough for 2L and 3L's.  So it's either drive and walk or take the metro and then take a bus.  I'd rather be close, especially with all the books and laptop.

No that's not what I meant.  I mean that I can't understand not wanting to date someone in law or grad school who you might actually have something in common with.

I think for first year as we can't park on campus I want to live as close as possible to the school even though it is apparently a really boring part of town.  I would love to live in walking distance if possible.  I've never lived alone (and I have a pretty serious fear of someone breaking into my house) so I'd like to live hopefully in a house or condo with some roommates, hopefully law or grad students.

sorry about the "Guys like beauty, everything else is secondary." comment. yes I do require beauty but I also require a girl to be smart, honest, outgoing, funny, etc.  Of course I care about the other traits. All I was saying is that even if you have ALL the other traits the most we could ever be is friends if you are not physically attractive.  I do have ugly friends who I like for many reasons... but I would never date them.

Haha if those qualities weren't anywhere in your thoughts while you were doing the first post, it's a little hard to buy that being "smart, honest, outgoing, funny" is really that important to you.  But nice try to make is PC and all.

But seriously if that's what you want, good luck too you.  I would actually love it if guys who weren just trying to sleep with would leave me alone and go after someone young and frivilous who doesn't give a damn anyway.  I mean to be honest I'm not interested in guys who would only like me if I were about 50 IQ points lower.  I'm tired of random guys trying to feel me up on the dance floor and how 90% of the guys I meet can't even hold a conversation.  You don't want ugly?  Well I don't want idiots.   

"I am tired of "educated" girls in med school, law school, etc thinking they should be desirable to men just because of their degree."  Yeah where do those girls get off thinking that someone might actually like them for who they are and what they've done with their lives.  I mean that's downright delusional.

Also what is with not wanting to date an equal.  Honestly, why wouldn't you want to date someone who is going through the same thing as you are, is the same intelligence level, you know someone you have something in common with.  I'm not saying its always necassary, but I can't imagine that being a turn off.

Hey, I'm 90% sure I'm going.  Think I'm sending in the deposit Monday and moving to DC from California, ahhh
Congratulations on the decision, let me know if you have any questions about adjusting from  SoCal to D.C. (no beaches nearby :(, I do plan on exploring what they've got - all 2-3 hour drives away - this summer).

Cool, thanks, yeah I'm already trying to figure out how to get out there and whether to bring all my stuff ahh, I may be having a massive garage sale.

Seriously?  From Cali to DC, huh?  I was actually debating this the other way around (concerning Hastings), until I got into the second half of the JD/MA program at American.  I wouldn't sweat it though; DC is a nice place to study, especially as a grad student. 

What made you decide on American? 

Before I went to visit the school I was basically making my decision on where I wanted to live and the reputation of the school and not much else.  None of the schools were really blowing me away, I like Northeastern because it was so different, but didn't want to live in Boston and it was significantly lower ranked than American and Loyola.  So basically I was left with Loyola, which was fine, but I was a bit underwhelmed.  When I went to American I saw all these things I wanted to do and there just seemed to be so much going on.  Also things I didn't think I'd get a chance to do at Loyola or Northeastern.  I liked the school enough to move from CA and that's a lot, but I think ultimately if the school is right for me I'll do better there.  Not too mention enjoy it alot more.  Also it's really diverse and I've travelled and lived abroad a lot so I thought that environment would make me feel more at home.
