Mercer University Class of 2014

Postby Rooney » Wed Apr 20, 2011 10:36 am

Segueing from the Mercer 2011 thread in the Apps section. In the next few weeks, I'll also be meeting with some old highschool friends who graduated from Mercer law in 2009. I can post some of their feedback here.

Will do. Both, I might add, have been employed since graduation, both at prestigious firms in GA.

As for living, I've heard Orange St and College St are prime places. I'm going to look at places the first week of May.

I'm moving over here from the 2011 thread as well.

I'm also in the beginning stages of apt searching too.

For anyone that hasn't been on the Other thread, my name is Danny, I look forward to meeting as many people as possible. I'm coming from Tennessee and don't expect to know anyone, so might as well start early. :)

Look forward to meeting you; I doubt anyone will know too many people to begin with anyway.

I'm moving up last week of July. If you're moving down, I'd guess from ATL?

Hi guys...my name is Chance. I'm really excited about getting started. I assume I'll be moving down (from ATL btw) the same time everyone else is saying in late July or so. Please feel free to share your experiences with housing options you've visited as I will do the same. During the Law School Day I saw a current 1Ls place in The Massey which is like a 5 minute walk to campus tops. I thought it was nice. He lived in a 1BR and paid $500 for it. One downfall would be how old the building is, but its extremely spacious (bigger than the 2BR I currently share with a friend in ATL) and very convenient to school. I'm pretty sure I will also be looking to room with a 1L so keep me posted if others are as well. Anyways, good luck with your summer and look forward to meeting everyone very soon!

Nope. I actually went to UGA and graduated a few years ago. Just working now. I love ATL though and will be disappointed to see it go, however, I am excited to simply be doing something different as well as meet new people.

I just talked to one of my Mercer alum friends. He says Walnut, Bond, Orange and College Streets are good locations. He said the old Massey building (directly behind the law building) is really run down and full of roaches :| Broadway Lofts are also a good option, but a bit further away.

That's solid info...I have a couple of other financial obligations, so I will have to look for as inexpensive apartments as possible. It would be helpful if more people could contribute warnings like that as to where to avoid as well as where to pursue...

Awesome, thanks for the info. I'll guess I'll start my search in those areas. Let me know if your Mercer alum friend has any other solid info to share.

When I was down there a couple weekend ago, I drove by Broadway Lofts. Cool buidling but definitely on the edge of town. Guys might not mind this, but as a girl, I didn't think it looked the safest.

I drove around all of the streets mentioned above and if you're looking to rent an apartment in a house or an entire house with a few people, there are a lot of options like that. There were already a lot of houses with signs in front of them to call if you were interested in renting. I actually wrote some numbers down if anyone would like them.

I just got back and got a nice place for a pretty good deal. I know of a 1br 1 bath for $450 if anyone is interested, PM me.
It seems like a lot of law/med students live around each other, and landlords love us. College, Walnut and Orange streets looked good.

Edit: Bond Street is good and close too

Has anyone received an invitation to join a Facebook group for the 2014 class yet? I am looking for a roommate next fall and believe Facebook would help with this.

I received my "second deposit" package in the mail the other day. It says that all accepted students have been invited to join the Class of 2014 on Facebook. Maybe you just have to request an invite?

The package also included a Roomate Survey, maybe you could fill that out? It was due by May 13 though. It also looked like people could post roomate ads on the portal page, maybe that would be helpful.

Who's attending the reception at TS on the 24th?

Awesome...yea I just got that package as well so I did fill out that survey. Thanks for the response. Also, I do plan on going to the TS reception just because its like 10 min. from my house. Hope to see you there! Anyone else plan to attend?

Hey, guys..I just finished my 1L year at Mercer. If anyone has any questions about the school, daily life, etc., feel free to message me. Mercer is a great school and I can assure you that you have made a wise choice by choosing to attend here.

I haven't. When did you send in your FAFSA? I only did mine a few weeks go, so I wasn't expecting anything too soon.

January. I also did the Entrance Counseling quiz at [url]Studentloans.gov[/url]...

My roommate called the Financial Aid office at Mercer and they said we'd receive packets in May.

EDIT: I felt way better about repayment once I read all the details at the end
