4,000 sq foot house for $300k
Loving Florida,

Ruskie

Housing cost in FL is not that cheap.  It might not be as expensive as NY or CA, but it's not as cheap as one thinks, especially in the last 3 years.   I am not so sure that $60K in FL = 100K in bigger market.

Are trial program for peoplw who can't get in as regular admission?



It is for people who the school feels would be successful in law school, but their LSAT scores are lower than the school average...so they put us in a trial program and make us prove that we can handle it. Each program has its own guidelines. The program that I was in required us to take two second year law classes online, over a two month period. To gain admission we need to maintain a certain GPA. However, the only thing that counts towards the GPA is the final in each class. It is rough, and a lot rides on how you do on the final, but it is worth it.

You have to prove yourself to get admission? Don't all the materials (application, LSAT, trascript, PS, etc.) that you submitted proved enough?   Please tell me you don't have to pay for it and that you get credit for it!

Incoming 1Ls / Re: Renting out a Room

Seems like he has some good references.  It might be fun to have an extra friend in a new location, but, just make sure that he is not dependant of you for things such as transportation, etc.

If you have an empty room, an opprotunity to help out a good kid, and earn some money at the same time with some potential of having an extra friend, definately worth considering!

I have read several chapters of E&E's Contract and they all seem common sense.  Offer, consideration, acceptance, bilateral, unilateral contracts, etc... oh.. com'on..didn't we learn those in some cheesy class at grade school?

Ruskie, since you're at a Top 14, do you expect 100K right after gradution?  One thing about Boalt compare to the other Top 14 schools is that its graduates' starting salary is much lower than the rest of the others. 

You have expressed numerous times that you would like to go back to Florida after gradutation, did you ever regret (or having doubt) for choosing Berkeley over all your other choices with much less debt?

By the way, how do you like your experience at Boalt so far?
