A totally random selection by my brain, today it's "Of Angels and Angles" by The Decembrists.

Thanks for all the thoughts on Lawyers' Club. I think I'll be living off-campus (but hopefully a quick bus/walk/bike away...) All this is contingent upon Michigan ponying up some financial aid so that I can actually accept their excellent offer!Hey all, my first post in this forum since my acceptance to Michigan (*aaah!*). I haven't yet received anything about the ASW's, short of the dates. I think an Ann Arbor April trip sounds lovely...Who-all is planning to live in Lawyer's Club? A friend of mine is a 3L and still lives there (she loves the social atmosphere and the fall-out-of-bed distance to class), but I think I've had my fill of dorm life as I've been out of university for 4 years. It also seems like spending finals cooped up with a bunch of law students is the surest path to insanity. The kicker is being on a meal plan again. No kitchen = no fun for Yak Herder.
Anyone have a good counter-argument?
I will be at the ASW in April, and looking forward to it!!
As far as Lawyers Club, since my husband will be joining me, this won't be an option for me
I'd love to hear anyone's thoughts on commuting from any of the newer complexes that look to be a few miles away from campus... do ppl generally drive, or take the bus (I think the city bus system is free to UofM students)?
I know a few people who live out a good ways. My best recommendation is to check the bus schedule and make sure a route goes by at a favorable time for you. No sense in living somewhere that you have to drive to the commuter parking lot, park, and then take a bus into campus.Driving is tough, you can get a parking pass, and there are a few parking lots within a few blocks of the LS, but I'm not sure how early they fill up.
Living farther away is a blessing and a curse. People enjoy the cheaper rent, but it makes it more difficult to go home for a cat nap when your civ pro class gets cancelled and makes it A LOT harder to go out and get trashed with your classmates since you can't just stumble home:P
I think you should retake/reapply. No offense, but I don't think it's worth going to law school (without a scholarship) if you can't attend at least a top 28 school, and ideally a T14.
I'm pretty sure it's a rejection. Just tried to log in with my info and here's what it says:
According to our records, you have declined our offer of admissions. If you believe our records are in error, please contact us immediately at firstname.lastname@example.org and we'll work it out!
Yeah, that's a rejection, sorry. Michigan is a TTT anyway. I sure you will have great other options.
