Has anyone heard anything since the initial admissions envelope?

Sent in my intent to enroll form along with the initial deposit. So far just silence on their end...

I think he meant the form in the purple envelope that says "Congrats. Now give us $600."

I got a letter and a copy of "The Law School" magazine the other day. I haven't sent the deposit yet though.

Mercer if you like space; D'Ag if you want to have some extra cash on hand.

As far as networking goes, where do you think I'll have a better shot? Keep in mind that I'm straight out of UG so I don't want to spend my nights surrounded by folks in their 40's...

I don't know ANYTHING about New York, so typically I'd just do campus housing.. but I have a cat.

Where do I even look? I don't know where to start. I'd hate to choose not to go to NYU based on an overwhelming housing decision.. lol

One thing to think about is how far from campus you want to live - walking distance, longish walking distance, 10-15 minute subway ride, etc. (I live in the third category and I think all the large buildings here allow cats and small dogs.)

Edit: or did you mean where to live in general? As far as I can tell, classmates who don't live on campus tend to live in the east village or Brooklyn.

In general I guess, I already assumed living within walking distance wouldn't be a possibility. How did you find yours? I googled/craigslisted for awhile last night and really didn't see much that was even borderline affordable :( (well, affordable is relative, but I'm talking twice what I pay in Baltimore)

Either one is fine really. I guess older people might tend toward Mercer, but I don't see much evidence of that.

My building my husband actually saw on a billboard a couple years before we moved here; the leasing guy said we were the only people ever to cite the billboard, lol. After factoring in a couple free months, we pay like $2300 for a 1-br, but I think that's a lot higher than what most single students pay (it's a pretty nice building). (That is, however, less than what I hear a studio costs in Mercer.) I found craigslist very overwhelming for New York, so we used mostly the sites where you can narrow things down a lot more, like rent.com or apartment.com etc. I know a couple people who live a longish walk away, in the village, east village, or lower east side, but I think Brooklyn is pretty popular too.

What's ya'll's opinions (current students) on living alone the first year in a studio or 1BR vs a cramped 2BR or even 3BR? How is studying hampered? Would you strongly encourage a particular housing option for 1L? Any horror stories? Is living with non law students during 1L a bad idea?
