In lieu of original content, I'm just gonna copy/paste some stuff I said earlier. So don't take offense, I'm just not feeling creative.
Cornell has an Off-Campus Housing Office that provides pretty good information to help you out.
There's a list of apartments and apartment complexes in Ithaca at http://dos.cornell.edu/dos/cms/ocho/upload/OCHO-COMPLEX-LISTING-2010.pdf
. It's not exhaustive, I'm not sure if inclusion on that list is self-selection by landlords or what. But it's a good jumping-off point. As well, the OCHO has a searchable online database for housing in Ithaca at https://larissa.campuslife.cornell.edu:7778/ochpr/public/pub_OCHSearchListingsPage1-1.asp
As well, Craigslist has a pretty good selection of apartments for rent in Ithaca. Worth checking out, you never know what you'll find. When I went apartment-hunting I used both OCHO and Craigslist, and a lot of listings on OCHO's database overlapped with Craigslist.
The areas CLOSE to campus are Collegetown, Lower Collegetown, West Campus if you want to walk a bit. If you're looking for $600-$750/mo, you're pretty much limited to small studios in Collegetown. Further out from campus, prices drop dramatically.
Disclaimer: I am not a current student. I'm probably missing a good bit of useful info.
I am indeed still searching for an anybody to help me fill the spot. It's 975 a person/month + utilities (basically everything). You'd be living right across the street from Vexion (+++perk?)! If you've been to Ithaca, you know how rundown and shady some of the apartments can be, I promise on my mother's life that this is heads and shoulders above it.
Thanks for the kind words Vexion!
FWIW, i'll be living in a room in one of those big 12-room houses on buffalo street. Only grad students will be living there, including a current 1L. Each floor has its own kitchen, bathroom, and living room. 10 min walk to myron taylor - the address is 504 e. buffalo street if you want to google map it. The rooms are a decent size and the landlord (a guy who's owned the building for about five years) is charging about $530 a room, which includes everything, even wireless.
The place was in much better shape than the ~$800 two-bedrooms that I saw in the same area, which were both shitholes, really.
I think there are a couple rooms left on the top floor. if interested, PM me and i'll give his email.

The landlord describes the occupents ot be "quiet and studious".
Girl. 23. nonsmoker. no pets.
EDIT: about 750/month each. all utilities included.
Hey everyone, I'm looking for people to live with. I'm a 22 year old male looking to share a few (2? 3? 4?) bedroom apartment/house in Collegetown. Anyone else looking for room mates?
Note: Some of these people aren't looking for roommates anymore. I know
and I think boss are Hughesing it. But just go to Advanced Forum Search in the toolbar at the top of TLS, select the TLS Class of 2013 subforum, and type "Cornell roommate" in the keywords box. You'll come up with just about every hit in this thread. There are also one or two on the official Cornell Law Class of 2013 Facebook group, and ongoing (if stagnant) housing discussions both there and the TLS Cornell Class of 2013 Facebook group. It couldn't hurt you to drop a wall post on both of those.
EDIT: HB is not Hughesing it. That was CyLaw I was thinking of. -_- I can't be bothered to fact-check. Legal research practice be damned!
