Mill Hill!
Doing the LPC at BPP.
Not doing Foundations, but might be doing the summer program (Georgetown-UCL) in London.
What courses are you thinking of taking? I'm hoping to do the WTO certificate thing

Hey guys,

Also going to GT (presuming I get all of my visa stuff done in time!).

Live in Ealing, West London (LPC College of Law last year). Did my first degree at Durham.

Was wondering what u guys had done about accomodation? Was looking at the brochure last night - all the price estimates they give are for one bedroom flats - surely everyone doesn't live on their own do they?!

Not doing foundations - can't afford it.

Look forward to meeting you all sooner rather than later.

Naz

p.s. hang in there with the LPC - not long to go now! good luck with exams.

Cheers Naz,

think we will need your best wishes for the June exams - as you are aware the LPC is quite boring.

Same, im not doing foundations. I will not make any course choices until I get the info from GT

Accomodation is a real issue. Hoping to start searching soon - although doing it from this side of the pond is challenging

so, Pinner, Ealing and Mill Hill - I guess we will be representing London at GT!

Yeah I definitely sympathise Vish - it was definitely a little tedious - still, a necessary evil I suppose!

It is challenging sorting out accomodation from this end. I was thinking of heading out a week earlier to try and sort it out. You planning on getting a place for yourself, looking to share or indifferent?

Good to know that the London Massive is out in force at GT!

hey guys,
same here. I thought about getting there a week or so earlier and find a place. I was definitely thinking of sharing a place.
I think as long as it is close to a metro stop we should be fine.

re Durham: when did you graduate and what courses are you interested in?
Cheers

i'm from poland. thinking about deferring my admission to next fall.. if it cannot be granted i guess i'll meet you guys this fall :)

for accomodation try using craiglist.com
i've used that before in nyc and you really can find great places there,
i'll be looking for something through that web since i think it's better to have own room in the nice area but for a cheaper price...

who knows, maybe we'll meet eachother soon..

Hi Dom,

I took European Studies at Durham and graduated in June 2002. I am mainly interested in International Economic Law and Dispute Resolution. How about you?

I am also looking to share accomodation. I think somewhere close to the metro is a great idea. Somewhere not too far from the law center. I'd like to get a nice place.

Not sure how I'm gonna go about finding a flatmate. To be honest, I'm fairly easygoing about who I live with. Would be good to have an outgoing flatmate though. Did you have any ideas on this area? Know there is a discussion board on the admitted students site, but there weren't any posts last time I checked.

Hi Naz,
sounds great-am interested in similar topics. Initially wanted to do more pil but the closer I get to the summer the more I tend towards trade.
I did a politics degree in Germany before doing law.
I searched on the net about accomodation and got the impression that there is plenty available and prices are ok as well.
I agree about metro, area and that it should be nice-since it is for a year we should also enjoy it.
I finish exams beginning of June-why don't we get in touch after that and talk about accomodation, courses etc then.
I send you a private message with my contact details.
Cheers,
Dom

Funnily enough I decided recently that I would like to take one or two courses in PIL too! Expect the politics in Washington to be interesting at the least. Glad to hear there is lots available in terms of accomodation. As I said in my reply to your PM, I think getting in touch is a great idea.

Good luck again.

Hey guys,

Has anyone received their immigration documents from GT? Just hoping all my forms reaching the university safely.

With regards to accomodation, the washingtonpost website is useful. I think sharing is a good option, so if there is any interests please don't hesitate to contact.

Hey Vish,

Like I was saying to Dom, I'm fairly easygoing when it comes to living with people. Would like a nice place near a metro. Also would like to live with outgoing people if poss. If you may be interested, maybe we could get in touch once your exams are over?

Hope revision is going well and that you're not too sick of highlighters and flags!

Sounds good.

I will be in contact through the board after the exams are finished - a month or so.

Hi Guys,

Just doing some research for my current job and came across this. It's good to see fellow Londoners/British students going to GT. I did the LLM there (2002/3 academic year) so if you want any advice, feel free.

You are really going to enjoy it and have to say it was the best year of my life. Can I suggest a website called Craigs list (just google it and there is a Washington DC section). I would also advice to be prepared to spend at least $1000 - $1500 for rent.

It's a great place to live for a couple of years. I'm back in London now. Word of warning - make sure you get to know as many international LLMs as possible - they're more down to Earth and have a good balance between a good social life (if that's a priority - was for me) as well as studies).

Make sure you have a chat with Dory Mayer when you arrive at the earliest possible opportunity about having a productive year.

Best,

Ps -Craigs list is a good source for accomodation and second-hand furniture - just to make that clear!
