What's this evacuation you all speak of [I assume hurricanes]. How much notice do you get to evacuate [I assume NOLA becomes a parking lot if you are required to evacuate]? Anybody?

Well, I talked to my boss who went to Tulane for undergrad, and he said he only had to evacuate once or twice in four years (for hurricanes). When Katrina hit, I think there was a solid 3 days beforehand, if not 4, for people to get out of the city.

I live on a fault line and an earthquake is supposed to hit us bad in this decade. At least it's not like that - you can't see earthquakes coming.

Have you guys started looking for housing? I've been looking on Craigslist and there seem to be a lot of places available. I'm kind of nervous about being able to find something walking distance to campus that still has everything I want (dishwasher—what 1L has time to do dishes?!, washer/dryer access, nearby parking, etc).

There seem to be some great apartments in the Garden and Warehouse districts, but being within walking distance is apparently pretty important during 1L...

Has anyone found anything yet?

It seems like a lot of the stuff available right now near the school are summer sublets. I'm pretty sure new places will start popping up for August toward the end of next month. I'm going to start looking more seriously around the middle of May.

Same here. The pending Bay Area quake is pretty scary... at least you can run from a hurricane.

There does seem to be plenty of housing right now. I think I'm gonna fly down in early/mid July to find something relatively close to campus. Also, it does seem like a good bike city, but from what I saw a car would be extremely helpful.

Looks nice, but too far from campus!

This thread has been pretty quiet... any future Tulane law students around?

I am heading down to New Orleans later this week to look for housing. Looking forward to the move and meeting you all in the fall.

I’m here. I was in New Orleans a few weeks ago looking for housing and found it to be extremely easy. I spent one afternoon looking at places and ended going with the second place I saw. I spent the next four days eating and drinking around New Orleans, exploring for the first time some of the restaurants uptown, of which there are quite a few great ones.

I’m moving down there the first week of August, taking the train from Chicago. Can’t wait!

You don't need a realtor. Just go up and down all the streets by campus and you will find tons of FOR RENT signs. And unlike cities like NYC, if you want to live downtown, craigslist is completely reliable. But your best bet is definitely just a loooong walk around campus.

I found my apartment thru the Tulane apartment listing. And yes, there are a lot of for rent signs up, it was pretty easy for me to find a place.

I started with Padmapper and walking around the area. Ended up getting a place through a referral from one of the people I called to call a friend of a friend.

So, even if the listing isn't what you're looking for, it might still be worth a shot to call anyway and tell them what you ARE looking for.

Do we need lockers? It seem kind of unnecessary. Anything I'll have to bring to class I'll probably have to take back home.

I emailed the Financial Aid office and here's what they said:

"We have not yet posted you award for the academic year 2010-2011. This will happen shortly. In the mean time you may want to go back to the website: http://www.studentloans.gov and fill out the E-MPN for the Stafford Loan (if you have not done so already) and fill out a new PLUS loan processing application (this gives the DOE permission to run your credit)."

Thanks. Yeah, I actually went over there and filled out the MPN and took the required "exam" for the loans, which was kind of a pain. Apparently they're supposed to send the financial aid info out to us later this week.

Congratulations to everybody on the acceptances! I am so very excited to start at Tulane in the fall!

I live in the area and can help with any questions regarding life (and finding housing) in the most fabulous city in the world!
