ahahah. Please don't go to Windsor. It's only a worthwhile trip for Michigan's finest 19 and 20 year olds who go to drink, gamble, and go to the strip club.

Stay stateside and take your parents to a Tiger game downtown. For the true Detroit experience, hit Slow's BBQ or any of the restaurants/bars in Greektown before or after the game.

Did anyone who sent in a lawyers club lease just get an email about openings in the lawyers club? I hope this is a mistake...

Did you all get the lawyers club email? I actually read the craigslist ad they link...pretty humerous for an admissions email.

Pretty sure this went to the whole Class. Did you apply and not get accepted?

Nah, I got confirmation on my lease a couple of months back. I guess I just got paranoid.

The email was pretty funny.

Hmm, I didn't get one yet and I signed a LC lease. Did it go to your UM email or your normal one?

I didn't sign a Lawyer's Club lease, and I didn't get the email.

Guess I'll give them a call tomorrow.

I haven't heard anything at all about the LC since they confirmed receiving my lease.

So finally made my first trip to AA a couple weeks ago and found a place to live- it all feels real now! I looked at like 15 apartments in one day and learned the joys of the housing racket in a college town- my undergrad town was small and not so insane. $650/month for a basement studio with no windows and ceilings so low my SO couldn't stand up straight? Srsly? Finally found a place I love that's reasonable, though, so party at my piece sometime soon.

Aaaanyhoosers, excited to have "gotten in" to MAP, but agreed that everyone probably got in. I guess the application was just to ensure a low level of commitment to actually considering those issues, which is cool. Anyone else going to be rocking the Campus Inn with me? My lease doesn't start until 27th.

Question: who did y'all put for references on your MPN for financial aid?

A parent and an uncle. As long as they don't live with you (or together), it's cool.

Ya, If you speed a little and there is no traffic its doable :) the 4.5 was the first thing that popped into my head cause of the train, which obviously takes longer.

Officially it's orientation unless you have a compelling need to get it earlier. Someone posted on the facebook group that they thought they'd heard it might show up in WolverineAccess sometime this summer, but I don't know how credited that is.

We got them towards the end of MAP week last year -- a few days before orientation started. I remember a few people checking the internet on their phones in the middle of a session, and then everyone rushing to compare section assignments afterwards. I doubt they'll show up online before MAP week (though I know that won't stop any of you from checking every day...)

That's good to know, though I probably will check every so often just in case. Thanks. :D

Any other Fall starters (or Summer starters/2Ls/3Ls really) in AA early and want to get together for a drink or dinner or something sometime?

Anything I am missing here?

Shit! I didn't even know that form even existed. I just filled out the forms and did the credit check on the studentloan.gov website--I didn't know I had to do it through Michigan's website. I've never taken out loans before so this is all new to me. I just filled it out now; I hope it isn't too late now?

I'm sure you're fine. At ASW they said they had no real deadline but preferred people did it a few weeks before class starts.

You'll be ok. I did mine for another program late August last year and everything worked out. The process is fast because Michigan is a direct lender.
