So where are good places to get furniture in Charlottesville? I have no furniture of my own, so I'm going to need to get it when I move in.

I for one have requested a floor plan, with measurements, from my landlady as to plan out, inch by inch, how I will furnish my room.

I think my wife and I might have to get rid of some furniture when we move in.

:(

Also, DOES ANYONE KNOW OF ANY KIND OF JOB AT ALL THAT MY WIFE COULD TEMPORARILY GET IN C'VILLE?

I love you guys.


I'm sure you've noticed that the biggest employer in Charlottesville is the University; does she your wife have any... collegiate skills? Other than that, I'd ask about commuting. And by asking I mean suggest, because I really have no solid leads.



The university has a hiring policy that biases recruiters against hiring anyone who is not already working for UVA:

--LinkRemoved--

And yes, my wife works for UCSD right now and has been doing so for several years, so I'd say she has substantial "collegiate skills."

My BF has been looking for jobs in Cville, and I have been looking for something temporary for summer, and there aren't many options!

This is the place in Charlottesville to buy or rent some student/cheap (last for 3 years only) furniture: Call Derek Higgins, Manager, Tel: 434 872 0600, Fax: 434 872 0601, Store Name: Your HomeTown Colortyme, 918 Preston Ave., Charlottesville, Va. 22903

Mention " UVA law School calss 2012" to Derek for better deals. This is the time to show group bargaining powers.

My family member spend all weekend looked every furniture stores in town for value deals. This is the one to recommend to the class 2012 members.


:wink:

But no, I don't really know. I did see a place near Main St and 12th though.

Federal Government
For those of you who will be expecting refunds/correspondence from the IRS (and won't receive them before moving), update your address with the IRS (LinkRemoved).
For males 18-25, update your address with the Selective Service System within 10 days of moving.
Have your postal mail forwarded by the USPS.

Referrals
We should organize some referrals between TLS people (maybe in the secret FB group), esp. for those who would be getting these services anyways.
Embarq (LinkRemoved): $25 or $50 bill credit
Comcast (LinkRemoved): Internet service only; one free month of Internet
Restrictions, of course, apply.


thanks so much for this YC!

that's a lot of addresses to change

EDIT: Thanks geoffree for the reminder. my bad YC.

True.

[And I'm also going to be under 21 for all of my first semester.] :oops:

Electric service (unless your landlord has made other arrangements) is through Virginia Dominion Power. You can schedule a turn-on up to 60 days in advance online (and create an account).


UVA should pay you to assemble some ultimate guide at the end of this cycle

LawWeb has a somewhat extensive guide for stuff like that, not sure if you guys have access to that yet.

Kind of random, but my sister just found a good job in Charlottesville through a church. If you all are religious, maybe your wife could look into part-time church work...I know a lot of times, churches are hurting for office workers, etc., especially in student-heavy areas...

On another note, my loan info FINALLY got posted. After emailing the financial aid office 4 times in the last month, I finally got this response (from the same person who kept sending me shrug-off emails before):
Katherine: I am not certain why your aid had not been packaged. I have just packaged and posted your aid to your SIS account.


So, sorry to take everyone else back to where you all were weeks ago, but I just wanted to check. My total loan package (in-state) is $58,000 with $8,500 in subsidized Stafford and $12,000 in unsubsidized Stafford loans (the rest in Grad Plus). Is that the normal breakdown?

Thanks for the help!

I'd have to check in-state, but that sounds right. You qualified for the max for subsidized Stafford and got the $20,500 max for Stafford overall.


Yay!! With an EPC of $0, that's what I need :D

We moved here for my husband's employment (after the economy crashed) and I was unable to easily find a full-time job. However, I got good work through the university's temp program: http://www.hrs.virginia.edu/employment/temps.html. It may not be a permanent solution, but it can buy you some time.

Also, if she's interested in working retail at all, this is the time to apply in Charlottesville, if possible. Lots of retailers have lost employees because students have graduated and left. I heard Barnes and Noble near the Law School lost staff.

Kane's Furniture is pretty good--their stuff has sort of a "young" feel. I also like Better Living on Rt. 29. Their prices are quite good. There's a World Market, and there are World Market coupons in a local coupon book called "Attractions." I know some people think coupons are dorky, but I think they're awesome, and you should definitely check out the Attractions book because it's a good way to try new restaurants.

Yea, thanks for the suggestion. I almost did the LSAT teaching thing at one point, but I started the training and absolutely hated it so I don't think that's for me.

I am going to go up there tomorrow maybe, or just wait until I move in a couple of weeks and just apply at a bunch of random retail stores. Hopefully I can find something part time at a Sunglass Hut or somewhere similar that doesn't require folding tshirts for hours.
