It seems like most TLSers have already gotten housing or at least have a place in mind and are on a waitlist. If I were you I'd pick a place and get on the waitlist now.

Feel free to talk about something substantive. I'll respond. :)



Are you committed to UVA? Do you have housing locked down?

Hmm. Do most of these places (Ivy, Jefferson, etc.) end up pairing/grouping people up based on the housing applications, or how do the waitlists work?

I am committed to UVA and I almost have housing locked down. I've got a place on hold pending a credit check. So by the end of the week I should have a place.

I know Ivy can pair you up with a roommate. The waitlists are usually after you've found a roommate and know where you want to live.

For example, if you aren't certain about UVA, but you have an idea of where you want to live if you go here you could submit an app. so that you would be on the waiting list for an apartment when one becomes available.

worst case, i think you'll have to grab a single at ivy (costs significantly more, but i bet they'll have openings)

I agree that we aren't a broad sample. But I know for a fact that quite a few complexes are filling up right now. So I wouldn't put it off for too long or you won't have a lot of options.

Combination of good job prospects and solid finaid.

It was a hard decision to make, considering my affinity for the West.

well for 2 br dens at ivy, we got the floor we wanted, but it's one of the furthest units from the law school. so i'm pretty sure those units are filling. i mean i would think a good 1/2 of the class already is committed to attending and likewise already finding housing. plus 1st deposits are due rather soon.

Here's the basics: syphilis, penicillin, syphilis. :)

Funny thing is they haven't mentioned lupus, which everything gets blamed on. A positive test for syphilis can be an indicator of lupus. tsk tsk

Haha. Well there is plenty of room, but I'm greedy and taking it all for myself. I'm getting a 2br/2bath at Avemore.

Here's the website if you're interested: http://www.avemore.net



Wow, Avemore looks nice, but it's just way too far for my taste.

I lolled for a solid 2 mins straight at that "Virtual Move-In" deal. Awesome.

I applied to too many schools and now I don't want to withdraw. It feels like breaking up with the school and breaks my heart a little bit...but I suppose Wednesday is the day.

I guess I just kind of assumed that housing doesn't really fill yet, because the majority of my friends who applied to law school don't know where they're going next year yet, and even those who do know haven't even started to think about housing. Maybe that is uncommon though?


My friends all have their housing figured out.

I think it also has to do with the complexes I'm looking at. The ones I'm looking at are nicer and farther from campus, so I'm competing with law, business, med students and young professionals.

Also bama, a lot of us have been in contact with people who currently go to UVA law and they've said that housing goes quickly. So it's sort of a self-fulfilling prophesy.
