Well that might work as I intend to charge 7-800 depending on what I get, does it include utilities?

Whenever, my lease goes until the end of September so I'll have to sublease/break my lease anyways so it really doesn't matter.

Ok, sounds good, these are a few specific things I am looking for:

Male (I don't need any distractions during law school)
Quiet (ya I'll probably be studying alot)
Non-smoker (at least in the apt.)
Non-drinker (at least in the apt.)
Bascially a serious student.

I'm new here. Excited to start, and in the process of prepping for LS. What prep books are you reading?

I worked and traveled for a while then finished my degree this May.

Although we don't know the sections we'll be in, we'll all be taking the same classes, perhaps different teachers, but the same classes.  So we could start some studying.  We don't know the specific cases, or even books, but some cases are almost mandatory.

They recommend reading all these law school prep books, but I did that before I decided to go back to school.  I want to get a head start now when there is not the intense pressure of law school.

Anyway, I am open to ideas.

(Full time 1L)

What books do they recommend, specifically?

Im a current 1L at DePaul.  Congrats on your acceptances... they are making it tough to get in to bump up the rank.  Shoot me a message on this board if you have any questions about how to prepare over the summer.  And yes, you should prepare.

I forgot to add... good luck with finding a "non-drinker" in law school.  I'm not sure that exists.  And if it does, i sure as hell wouldn't want to live with them.

Well I'm now a 2L here and yes I did end up rooming w/a drinker, but one non-drinker as well. A great way to prepare is to work on legal writing. It's quite different than most writing and takes some adjustment. You could get a "bluebook" citation book and look it over, but they do change almost ever year. But that isn't the difficult part; the difficult part is learning to write decently in IRAC (Issue, Rule, Analysis, Conclusion) form.

Well back to finals prep. ~groan~
