Choosing the Right Law School / Re: Who is going to Georgetown?
« on: April 14, 2006, 10:21:39 AM »
I, too, will be at Georgetown in the fall.  I sent in my deposit and got a confirmation that they received it and my transcript.  Now if my dean's certification would just get there I'd be all set.  As for living situations, I'm already in the area and just re-signed my lease for another year, but if you have any questions about where to live, feel free to PM me.

Washington state resident: 160/169, 3.6 from UW

But I've also been out of school for nearly 2 years.

I lived in Seattle all my life and went to UW for undergrad.  I now live on the East Coast and miss it terribly.  I love Seattle.  It's got great diversity and lots of ethnic food.  You can go mountain climb or rowing on the lake.  The weather in the summer is wonderful.  It's really my favorite place.  I went to Hawaii over Christmas and was really disappointed that I had to use my vacation to go somewhere other than Seattle.  Anyway, I'm obviously obsessed, but feel free to PM me if you have any other questions.

Regarding your parking question, there is street parking that is metered really close to the law school.  If you don't mind a longer walk, then you can park in Montlake, which is right by Husky Stadium.  If you have a UPass, then you can park for really cheap, but you do have to climb about 3 flights of stairs to get to the campus.

The one good thing about living on the East Coast is that I get to go see the Huskies play in the NCAA tournament tomorrow.  Go Dawgs!

I got an email from UW also today.  I was complete in November and just got the news.  Good luck to everyone who is still waiting!  UW is a great school.

Incoming 1Ls / Re: LSAT vs MCAT
« on: March 05, 2006, 03:49:17 PM »
I've taken both and even applied to med school.  That said, they are both hard in their own way.  The MCAT does have logic parts in it, and I feel like the curve is a lot tougher.  I scored in the 93rd percentile on the MCAT and the 97th percentile on the LSAT, but the MCAT is a lot more draining.  I only know two people who scored higher than me on the MCAT (and they are now in MD/PhD programs), but I know tons of people who did better than me on the LSAT.  It's probably easier to go into the LSAT cold than going into the MCAT cold, but it's easier to learn the techniques for the LSAT and come out on top.  The MCAT has much more knowledge-based questions, meaning that if you forget about the Krebs cycle, you may have trouble.  I'm not sure if you that answers your questions, but PM me if you want to know anything more specific.

Cool!  Thanks for the info.  I'm definitely going to move back to Seattle after law school, so this info is really helpful. :)

I live in NE DC on Capitol Hill in a three bedroom row house with two other roommates.  Rent is $2200/month including water, so we each pay a little over $700.  It's a really good deal, but we were lucky because there were two other groups interested in the place.  But parts of NE DC are nice.  Just don't go north of H Street and east of 12th.  I personally really like the Columbia Heights neighborhood.  Good luck!

Acceptances, Denials, and Waitlists / Re: Northwestern v. Georgetown?
« on: January 19, 2006, 06:16:58 PM »
I'm in a similar situation.  Northwestern and Georgetown are pretty much the only schools I applied to.  Now that I've been accepted to both I am having trouble making a decision.  I live in DC and love it, but eventually I want to go back to Seattle, my hometown.  Does anyone have any info about which school places better/is better known on the West coast?

Got a deferral also.  It was sent to my permanent address and my mom called me in the middle of the night to tell me (3 hour time difference).  When I got up this morning, I remembered talking to her but didn't remember the contents of the conversation.  Unfortunately, I got the news for a second time when I called her back this morning.  Oh well, it's no big deal.  I'm not going to send in any extra info.

I second Goodfella about the Circulator bus.  A buck gets you to G-Town (I usually go from Union Station) and I find it to be the cheapest and most convenient way to get there. :)
