The house was about 10-15 minutes from School. Not sure if it is considered eastside or west side. And yes it was for sale by owner. Ask your agent about the villas at snapfinger they have houses in the low 120s and they seem nice (online). good luck!
MAN.. what a change from D.C..Not sure Im ready to go to such a small place.. Completely a college town, but also completely a cool place.. After the trip, I think I've decided its the place I want to be. I can afford to buy a house, the law school facilities are on a beautiful part of campus, the downtown area (if you can call it that) is pretty hip, and everything is CHEAP, CHEAP, CHEAP... The realestate agent I was with forgot to feed a meter downtown and I offered to go back and throw some quarters in for her.. and she said "dont worry about it, its only 3 bucks".. A parking ticket for 3 bucks!! are you kidding me!?!? I went out to a show and had a few beers later that night and spent less than 15 bucks.. You cant even get two drinks in D.C. for that much!The students also seemed a lot more diverse than I had expected.. Dont get me wrong, its still the bible belt, but the students I saw milling around campus seemed pretty cool.. Great music, and great bars.. For a little more culture/sophistication you'd probably have to head to Atlanta, but that is only 1.5 hrs. away. Also, I spoke with a recent grad of Emory who works at a BIGLAW firm in Atlanta (pulling in over 100k) and she assured me that if she had to do it all over again she would have gone to UGA.. She said that the people she works with that graduated from UGA had a much more enjoyable 3 years than herself.. So.. Im feeling pretty good about UGA.. Hit me with any Athens questions you like..
hahaha. i love college rivalries.it's sad but true, Tech has only about 10 girls and 6 of them don't speak english very well.
Drowles,I once admitted that UGA had a "fine law school." Why attack UB? You could have mentioned that USNews ranks UGA higher, but you are probably wise enough to know that I would have retaliated by pointing out that UGA's law school has fallen in the rankings over and over again the last few years... GREAT trend, my friend. I guess emphasis should be placed on "HAD a fine law school." Up to this point, I have merely pointed out some of the more negative attributes of rednecks. If that offended you, does that mean those applied to you? You might be a redneck ... if... [btw, Did you know Jeff Foxworthy went to Tech?]
Albeit, the guy from UGA has a distinct advantage over any guy from Tech. This arises from the fact that the UGA guy has "practiced" with all his female relatives and farm animals. As a result, he never has to utter "a sheepish apology for his inability to perform" to a hooker (aka his sister). UGA folk are also better banjo players... i hear the Deliverance song playing in the distance every time i unfortunately have to leave Atlanta to visit Athens.
