UF UNDERGRAD ASKING - Who should I live with for my 1L year?
« on: March 05, 2009, 01:19:44 PM »
Although I haven't narrowed down where I'm going next year, I'm looking at apartments in the cities that I'll most likely end up in.

As of right now, it's looking like Los Angeles, Long Island, or staying in Gainesville.  I probably would move in with fraternity brothers in a small house near the law school if I stay in Gainesville.

But what's your general suggestions?...Should I live alone?  Should I live with a few other 1L's from the same school?  Or should I just live with random people?

I've gotten so accustomed to undergrad and living with no one but fraternity brothers, so it's a little bit of a culture shock for me.

Thanks!

I live in Jville but regardless I would live alone if you can afford it. The fewer the distractions the better. Also Gville is gonna get real fun in the fall anyway as Tebow goes for his 3rd title and second heisman. Spending football saturdays here is a must  ---http://swamprestaurant.com/

I have heard from a lot of attorneys and law students to not live with law students

I'm a 1L In Washington, DC.  I'd say that if you can afford to live alone, go for it.  Otherwise find a professional or a grad student in a different program to live with (my situation now).  Don't live with other law students, particularly those in your program.  It gets a little crazy around exams and having a sanctuary is really valuable.

This is what I've heard from students at ASDs as well.
