Where should I live?
I am planning to apply to law schools in the next year or so and the advice I have heard most often is to go to a school that is in a place (city and or state) that I want to live in.
That is because sometimes law degrees aren’t the most mobile—every state has its own bar exam and schools will tend to prep you for the bar in that state.
That being said, how do I know where I want to live, if I have never lived there?
I tend to like big cities, where I have a lots of options of things to do and people to meet. I have lived in the LA area (whittier). and I have done quite a bit of traveling. what I like more than living somewhere is living in places for short bouts of time—not exactly ideal for the whole law school thing.
i don’t want to rule out smaller places because i live in a city that is half a million, so not big but not small. i do like it here . i like the small town-y feeling when you know a lot of people.
tell me about where you live or have lived? what are the pros and cons. what specifications do you think will help me get a better idea of where I should live?
Thanks for your help!
please ignore type-o’s my computer/internet is being a jerk tonight
