i've done a lot of searching in the last week, and i've only seen a few that start on august 1 (sept 1 is well represented, though). hopefully i'm just not looking in the right place! i'm not familiar with boston at all, so there's a chance i'm doing something wrong :?

Where do you look? I saw a few on CL that start in August, but the vast majority do seem to be a September start. This seems normal though for Boston... It's the September scramble. I guess a cheap weekly hotel is the standard for the first week? I wonder if BU would count that as a relocation expense

i've only looked a little bit at CL. i mostly just googled "[neighborhood] apartment" and found links to various realty websites in that area or found websites for the city of boston that listed apartments in that area. i should probably give CL another try though.

I was asked to repost this here:
I just realized that BU starts pretty late! Registration is Aug. 31, orientation Sept. 2. It reminds me of UCLA (we were on quarters/always started around Labor Day). I guess moving into a place on Sept. 1 isn't that bad, then. It'd be a pain to move right in between those two days, but not the end of the world because then it looks like we'd have that long weekend (Sept. 3-5) to organize/get settled (the 5th is Labor Day) before classes start Sept. 6!

BTW, I'm glad to see this thread become a little more active... I hope more people join in!

Oh yeah so classes don't even start until latee (After labor day in September), so I guess we're good with the September move-in dates... just don't expect much time to adjust

Sweet. That is so clutch.. I was having a very hard time finding 08/01 move-ins.

The revised class schedule for next year has classes beginning a week later to help out those with Sept. 1 move in dates. So it shouldn't be a problem

I know! Yup, going to see what happens with NU, but I'm trying to be realistic and plan for BU.

just sent my seat deposit!

also, CU Boulder's class of 2014's thread is up to 23 pages, are we lacking excitement or are they just super pumped about boulder?

Just BU? At least it's simple!
