Do any of you guys know anything about housing there? I know it's pretty expensive in D.C. area. I am looking to live fairly close by to school and pay around $1K/month or less for a studio or 1-bedroom.Any help is appreciated.
I met over the phone with my counselor, who seemed surprisingly optimistic both in regards to our chances (as transfer students) at OCI and our chances locking up a 2L summer associate position in general (considering the bottom is dropping out on the economy). She looked up rising 3Ls and graduated students who had transferred to GULC from my current school in the past and most were working at biglaw, which was relieving. I thought, as transfer students, we might have a scarlet T on our chests at OCI, however she claims this is not true and this may even be a bit opposite from reality. Further, if you just read abovethelaw.com you would think we should drop out now because no firm is going to show up to OCI. However she said that participation is only down less than 20% from last year, which I found quite surprising. All and all a pretty pleasant experience.
