i know exactly where that store is.  yeah, the law school t-shirts at the bookstore are kind of lame, but at the same time i want to be lame and where a law school shirt while i am working out. ;)  i'll check it out when i get back down there.

the t-shirt that they sent us is huge.  i washed and dried that sh*t for about an hour without effect.

my apartment is a one bedroom, one bath.  i am not sure about the number of square feet, but i do know that it is pretty small.  but, it has a washer and dryer in the unit, and everything was very new and freshly painted.  i am happy.


casino, is this a high-rise?  also, would you mind sharing the name of the building?

Where is Fountainbleu and is it safe/close to campus? I keep seeing ads for reasonably priced apts there.

The Fountainbleu (Hilton), I think, is in S. Beach right on Collins Ave.  I dont know if this is the one you are talking about though.  But when I stayed there several months ago, they had condo's for sale and the owners had many of these rented out.

btw, it looks like i will be going down the week of the 12th.  a realtor seems like the best option - given that they probably get a commission for finding a renter.

if i remember correctly the lockers are located outside within a hallway (the campus is basically an outdoor campus with all of the hallways exposed).  does the wellness center have lockers?  in any case it would be better than leaving it in your car.  but i would be apprehensive about leaving something in a locker where it could get "misplaced" - especially if you have all of your classwork/notes on it.

Everyone, I was wondering how I should handle the following:

I currently have a car that seems like it is in ok condition.  But I am worried that it probably will not be able to handle the weather in miami (AC makes the car shake, 120K miles).  I am working now, and I figure I could get a car loan.  But if I get a car now, I would have the car payments to deal with.  But if I wait until the car breaks down, I would'nt be able to get a loan. 

Is it even possible to get a car loan while going to school fulltime with no cosigner?

HELLO i'm from Michigan! I feel very torn between my home team and miami.... They may have won tonight but I am confident we will win it all again this year.

lalaMIA - Are you renting a 1 bedroom? How much is your rent?

I'm renting a studio at University Inn. I thought about the one bedroom, but it was just too expensive and the studio is only slightly smaller without a full kitchen. My rent is $875 a month. I guess I decided to take a smaller apartment for the close distance to the school. I havent even seen it yet though, I am heading down next week to look, hopefully it is ok!!

lalaMIA, so are there other studios available at the Inn?

i also may not be able to make it until july.  i hope some apts will be available.  i dont mind paying the premium to get a nice place - hopefully these places arent going too quickly.

you are right in that Case is not a bad school - but many would try to convince you (and me) that if you are not in T3/T10/T14 (its weird how people redefine the "top" schools for their own purpose) or so on, that you would'nt have a chance at a good career.

Anyways here are three more:

Barry Meyer holds a bachelor’s degree from the University of Rochester and a J.D. from Case Western Reserve University School of Law – CEO Warner Bros. Entertainment

Mr. Edward Lineen is a graduate of Fordham College and Fordham Law School – General Counsel IBM.

John Chidsey holds a master's of business administration degree in finance and accounting and a Juris Doctorate from Emory University, Atlanta, Georgia, as well as a bachelor's administration degree from Davidson College, Davidson, North Carolina – President Burger King
