Getting ready to send my deposit! I already live in Boston. If there are any other Future BU Law Students/Current Bostonians, anyone interested in summer meet ups?

Sent in deposit today. Do we get a confirmation if/when they receive it?

Wanted to wait to hear from all my schools before I sent in $300 but...I guess not.

Yeah, they send you an email confirming receipt and reminding you about the Deans Cert and 2nd Deposit

I'm also a future BU Law/current Bostonian. I'd be interested in a meet up as well.

I'm not a Bostonian, but I'll be in and out of Boston looking for a place, moving and whatnot, so keep me posted and if I'm in town I'd be down! :)

Congrats!

I'm 99% sure that you have to mail the deposit... it has to be postmarked by today, so get that out ASAP! :)

eta: I think aliarrow linked to a pdf of the deposit form in the BU 2011 applicants thread.

How quickly did people receive the confirmation email of receipt?

I sent mine certified on Wednesday from Boston, but got nothing back from BU in terms of confirmation...

I sent mine via regular mail on Monday (not certified, in hindsight that was a DUMB move but in my defense I've had a horrible flu this week :| ) and got a confirmation email yesterday.

I sent mine via regular mail from DC on tuesday and got a confirmation yesterday. Don't worry Krad, mine wasn't certified either. We just like living on the edge, that's all!

I guess I still generally trust the USPS, even if it is slowly dying out! :wink:

eta: In retrospect, we really could have been f'd.

:lol: I guess that means evan and I will be as well...

Question: Is anyone looking to try to live solo for 1L? I'm going back and forth, primarily due to studio housing costs in Boston :roll:

My SO will be following me after 1L (we currently live together and he has to finish his surgical residency here in Denver), so I've got 2L/3L on lock. I'm not sure what I will be doing... I haven't lived with roommates (other than him) in a few years now.

BU Class of 2014 off to a great start! ;)

I'm struggling with this now. I wanted to live alone originally, but like you said, the studio costs will likely cause me to do a two bedroom.

I'm looking to live solo, but studios seem to cost way more than living with someone in a 2 bedroom. The thing I worry about is paying more to live alone and then maybe feeling a little isolated. I just worry even more about ending up with a roomie that I dont get along with so there are pros and cons to both situations I guess.

Does anyone know how quickly BU-owned apts fill up? I feel like I should rush to get one right now but I'd like some more time to figure things out, maybe find a place off-campus, decisions, decisions...

I feel ya on all of this!!

I'm not sure about the university-owned stuff... I have a cat so I'm looking off-campus.

Yes, I looked into them for a brief second, on the off chance that they'd allow a cat (false hope I know). Let me see if I can find the link...
