Location is a wash because they're across the street from each other. Regents has the big community of 1Ls which for me is a negative (but for many is a positive). Regents two bedrooms have two full bathrooms, whereas Algonquin only has one bathroom total, a big downside for me. I think price is pretty similar. Regents gym you have to pay for after three months, Algonquin is free. Regents has central heat/AC, Algonquin does not.

Can't think of anything else off the top of my head, but feel free to PM me with any specific questions!

I've heard very negative things about MAC management which operates the Algonquin apartments.

Algonquin gym is complete shit. Do not take it into consideration. There were like 3 cardio machines and not a single free weight. I think the room was carpeted, too. :?


What a bummer... Know of any place that
1) welcomes pets
2) has stainles steel appliances and granite counter tops
3) is close to campus
4) has a nice gym
5) has central heat/ac
??

There are also sites like padmapper where you can do your own research for places that fit your specifications.

Ratner isn't THAT far from the law school. I walked to it during ASW.

On a different note, if I get a 0 on my final paper (that is not turn it in) I get a C in this class. So you can imagine the difficulty I'm having finding motivation knowing that a 50% will give me a B in the class. Someone inspire me.

If any of you are planning on going in the summer to find housing, taking Virgin America and bringing someone with you:

How to get a 2 for 1 coupon to/from Chicago: “Like” Virgin America on FB. Then click on the “Chicago” tab on the left side of the page. You then just submit some random photo so people can vote for you.

You can also get a 20% off coupon if you vote.

EDIT: it looks like it might only be good for flights from SF and LA.

Just a heads up in case any of you have not experienced first hand the American Apparel difference. Here is the size chart:

S 0-2
M 4-6
L 6-8
XL 8-10
2XL 10-12
Comments: This shirt is fitted and runs petite. We recommend ordering one size up.

This chart reflects what I have experienced with their shirts... always a little startling to see 2XL is a 10...


This is good to know. Do they shrink much? Not sure if I should go with L or XL :oops:

I went with XL. Picking that was WEIRD.



I think that XL might be overcompensating for you guys... I went with large and feel ok about it. We'll see though I guess. They won't shrink if you don't put them in heat...
