that is pretty messed up. on the other hand, hasbrouck is open to the entire 4500+ grad school community and we get hughes all to ourselves, so maybe there is still a shot. or maybe i'm just rationalizing

it would be nice to get a decision relatively quickly so we'll know whether we can commit to apartments or not, but thats not bloody likely

hooray for more uncertainty! i was almost beginning to miss it after i finally signed the dotted line and sent in my deposit


Aw man, and Schuyler isn't being offered for grad housing this year, which means that if Hughes is filled up, there aren't many campus housing options left. I hope they tell us soon!

Anybody thinks that sharing one of these could be a good idea? They seem like a pretty good deal with all the utilities included, parking, etc...

This was actually my second choice so if hughes doesn't pan out for me then I am going to look into it. let me know if you have any info before me please.

Yeah, the 1 bedrooms are too expensive but the 2 bedrooms seem reasonably priced and it's about a mile walk to the LS.

Hopefully they still have some apartments left by the end of May... that's when I'll be looking to sign a lease.

More correspondence with the housing people:

"These assignments will begin next week and I don't know if you will get housing there or not as there is only 23 spaces for males and I don't know where you are in the applications. Assignments are made in the order of the applications received. You should know within the next 2 weeks."

looks like they never sent out the paper forms at all...

This oversight (or simply lack of communication) rests with the admissions office. The people there are SUPER friendly so I won't be too critical, but it puts a lot of law students at a disadvantage if those students were expecting on-campus housing. Consider everyone who isn't on TLS... they'll apply for housing much later!

I also don't think all on-campus housing is gone yet. The following was recently advertised: --LinkRemoved--

that sucks- I bet people are just waiting for the paper forms. glad we figured out how to apply online! either way though, the off campus housing seems pretty nice, I wouldn't mind living there. I guess I'll leave it up to the Cornell housing gods to decide where I live next year :)

are you paying full price panda? i'm sure a ton of students are paying sticker. last year's LSAC report says 224 out of 561 received grants...so presumably 337ish are paying full price...
