Anyone else decide on attending SLU?  If you are, you are sweet.

Hi. I already go there, but I'm dual degree so I'll be graduating with you.

Nice to meet you.  :)

Looks like I'll be at SLU as well. What dual degree program are you doing, skeeball?

Skeebal,

When did you declare your dual degree?  Are you both from the St. Louis area or from out of town?

And nice to meet you too Skeebal.  Any information you can give me on St. Louis that I may not have heard at the admitted students weekend or from this board?

I'm JD/MHA. I filled out the application over break, and filed it the week before classes start. Big warning: if you're considering a degree with the SPH, they are a PAIN to deal with. They took so long to give me an answer on everything, I had to call/email to remind them.

I'm from St. Louis. I live in the suburbs b/c my boyfriend bought a house down here before we met.

They're rebuilding Highway 40, and the eastern half will be closed starting January, which will make getting around a lot tougher for much of the SLU community. Keep that in mind when you're deciding where to  live.

I'm actually from Memphis. I'm looking at apartments right now right around SLU, so hopefully I won't have to drive that far, if at all.

Anyway, I'm in the middle of talks with people about doing a JD/MA in Philosophy (that's not bioethics).

I am definitely going to live either in midtown St. Louis in one of the buildings across from the law school or in Central West End.  I am not going to have a car and want to be within walking distance of the school.  What areas are you looking at?

I'm looking around Central West End...mostly between the park that is to the west of the school and the the campus. I've been just using internet sources for now. I won't have a chance to actually visit the school and the area to find a place to live until after graduation in a few weeks. But I plan on moving end of May/early June, which means I also need to find a job.

Anyone else going to be in STL for the summer?

Lobstah!

I'll be working up until the end of July and moving a few weeks before orientation. A friend of mine is a 1L now and we are looking in the Central West End as well. Hwy 40 being closed poses a problem if you want to live farther out, but there are plenty of places to live around school.
