I am due May 4th - it may seem very soon, sometimes, however, it feels like she is never coming. People keep teasing me with stories of babies coming weeks early. Unfair. I am way tired of being preggo, and wish I could just get it over with!!



So any day now! Thats so exciting--congratulations!!! :D

Hey roomie! I saw this post last week and got in touch with Elise...and I sent the lease and deposit to the property management company on Saturday! I'll pm you :)

So to update for anyone interested: as of last Friday there's still one room available!

Hey there! I might end up living with you girls! I just emailed Elise, and she's going to send me the landlady's information. Are either of you going to the house hunt?

Does anybody know anything about the Crowne Club apartments? They look nice but I haven't had the opportunity to check them out myself.... Thanks!

Hi! Elise mentioned that another 1L had contacted her -- definitely keep us posted if you confirm!

I am not sure whether I'll be attending the house hunt. I used up a bunch of personal time for my recent wedding and honeymoon so I am hesitant to ask for that Friday off. I heard it's a lot of fun though!

I think I just befriended you on facebook, are you from Florida? Not to be creepy, I had just noticed that your profile picture looked like a wedding-type one. As for the room, I'm almost 100% positive, I just want to find out a couple little things from Elise (like would a full size bed fit in the room if I decided I don't really want to revert to a twin, etc) before I confirm! I'm definitely coming out for the house hunt - I didn't visit when I took my school tour, I only looked at the DC and Virginia schools, and I think I better visit before I spend $100K!

Edit: And congrats (on the recent wedding)!

I'd recommend the other Crownes (Oaks, Polo, and Park) over Club. Club is around 15-20 minutes away from the school while the others are less than five. So while Club is a bit cheaper (I think?) it'll probably be worth the few extra bucks to be closer to the school.

But I live in a Crowne now, and highly recommend them!

Are the Crowne apartments typically full of undergrads and are they close enough to campus that I wouldn't have to buy a parking pass? Thanks!

I wouldn't say "full of undergrads." There are some, but I've never had any noise issues. They've taken over the pool in the past week, making it difficult to peacefully read an outline by the pool (unless you wear earplugs, and look like a crazy person like I've been doing!) but I can't really blame them.

I'd say Oaks is within walking distance to the school, but because there are no sidewalks around, I wouldn't really recommend walking it, though some certainly do. But if you don't feel like shelling out the 500 bucks for a parking permit, the school does give out a number of free permits, available on a first-come, first-serve basis, to park at the church across the street, affectionately known as "the God lot." It adds an extra 5 minutes to the walk, but keeps some money in your pocket.

Awesome! I'm so jealous. I went last summer, and now that it's that time of year again, I've been very wistful.... Where are you going? How long will you get to stay??

I already signed up for an apartment at Crowne Polo, but I still think I might go to the House Hunt just to hang out and meet everyone.

I'm having second thoughts about attending. Paying sticker at a private school to become an ADA is increasingly looking like a bad idea. Any care to share their opinion on paying sticker if you intend to go into PI? I'll make my final decision after the June LSAT.

I am paying Sticker.

What are your other options?

Yesterday my option was to wait another year plus retake in June. The yellow ribbon program list will not be out until summer and essentially vets get a free ride at participating schools. Wake is not participating. However Penn State just emailed me stating they are participating in the yellow ribbon program and offered my seat back, a free ride.

Well if you can afford to wait it out another year you might as well give it a shot. Just my opinion though.

Haven't checked this out in a while. Excited to hear about everyone who is coming this fall! If the 1Lers are still checking this, I am in a bind at the present. I am trying to decide whether or not to do either the crowne apartments or renting a house near the school. Is the fact that a bunch of law students live in the crowne complexes a drawing point for them? I am somewhat worried about being away from "the action" so-to-speak if I choose to live in a house. Thanks!

I chose the crowne apartments over trying to rent a house.
