I'll give a plug to the houses on Virginia Street (right behind Tennessee). It's walking distance to the law school, right behind Wendys, McDonalds, Gumby's, the Loop Pizza, Kinkos, and a Greek Food place. It is also right behind the strip which includes the all famous Bullwinkle's. Man, I used to love livin there (my rent was $285 + cable and water, split with 3 other roommates)......By the way, get a Thirsty Moose Card, you won't regret it :)

Is it a complex? How would I find out about renting there?

Anyone received a need-based scholarship yet? I know they were evaluating them about a week and a half ago.

I'm visiting Tally Saturday to look at places. I've got a few things lined up, but if anyone has suggestions for any pet-friendly places I should check out, let me know. Thanks!

Nope :( and I am kinda disappointed with that figuring how it is I have received only an acceptance letter and nothing else.

I want some more materials to pump me up!!
For goodness sake, I am still getting e-mails and materials from Temple and I already withdrew!

Come onnnnnn FSU! Give me a button or something!

Did you not get a packet after the acceptance letter? I did about a week or two after my acceptance. No buttons or stickers or anything though. LOL. Just some information about what needs to be sent in before the semester starts.

That sounds vaguely familiar. I never received anything like a viewbook (probably because they do not have one). That's alright though...

BTW put my pre-lease deposit down on Florida Towers. Anyone else staying there?

EDIT: If you do, I would hurry up as they said they will probably have all of their pre-leases completed at the end of April for Florida Towers

I asked them if they could guarantee me a room on the street site (not on the Potbelly's side) and they said no, ergo, count me out. I'm probably going to stay in a condo over by the stadium.. it's only about 5 mins away.

Yes. I'll be looking at places Saturday. I think I will be looking into bicycles...

Yes I also put as a preference "law school side [aka, away from potbelly's] and any floor (to make it easier and increase my chances]. We shall see what happens. I was in the military and after learning to sleep in the freezing rain I have learned to sleep through just about anything lol. So, hopefully, if I am placed on potbelly's side it won't be a problem.

Has anyone seen those new condos that are on gaines? I happened to drive by them last night, never seen them before, they look nice.

I was thinking about buying one down there a couple of years ago, but they're painfully close to the railroad tracks which bothered me. I will agree with the fact that they're very nice, both inside and out.

I was thinking about getting a motorcycle to drive to campus. (gas=$$$) Any opinions? Is there parking for bikes near the law building and is the weather suitable?

To those interested, I checked out a few places Saturday and wanted to share my opinions:
Skyview - A dump. Really. If you need more details, let me know.

Parkwood Apartments and University Lofts - I didn't bother to even go inside because I was so unimpressed with the outside. It's not that they're terrible, the looks of the places just made me feel slightly claustrophobic.

Franklin Point - These were OK looking and I planned to go inside, but the office was closed at 3:30, even though the hours are until 4 p.m.

Embassy House - Slightly further from campus, but these were really cute. Plus, they're right downtown.

The Chateau - These were really nice too. I will probably be going up again in early May to sign a lease somewhere. Now that I've decided not to worry about how close to campus I live, I think it really gives me some more options.

Also, I hear the FSU bus system is pretty good, and I plan to get a bike.

FYI - I have a dog, so all the places I looked at were pet-friendly.

Boilerlaw - As to weather, yes, definitely suitable for a motorcycle. Parking, I'm not so sure about.

Does anyone plan on doing/applying for the optional law orientation the 13th? I was thinking about applying and was wondering if anyone had heard any positive or negative things about it...
