So Laurrk sounds like you and the bfriend are officially over. sucks.
Well, officially we are separated (which is strange, since we still live together, and we're still doing our weekly grocery store thing tomorrow). But I think it's the end. I'm just having a hard time accepting that. But I'll be moving in a few months, and he got a clerkship in CT, so that may be the end for good (even if we have to be civil to each other now since we share a lease). Oh well.
My current house just went on the market - I am hoping to sell it by early June. That would give me about a month to screw around and a month to settle in. I may even have an offer this week (according to my realtor), if that is the case I may quit my job early and screw around for SEVERAL months.
That's awesome, I hope the offer comes through for you! I say leave your job as soon as is feasible and take an extended vacation. I figure that it's totally justified to leave work earlier than later since you're going to be busting your butt in law school for three years. At least that's what I'm telling myself. It's the last (extended) summer vacation you may get for a long time, so enjoy it.
Have you visited Case? I went out there last month and took a tour and drove around, checked out the greater Cleveland area. I really like the Cleveland suburbs, but I'm not a city kind of gal so I decided not to go to Case. The campus definitely has an urban feel to it, at least that's how it seemed to me. Not super-urban like Cleveland-Marshall, but you're still in a city. Of course if you like cities then it's probably perfect for you - there is so much to do right around the campus. And it's a great school. I don't know much about the other schools you're thinking about.
