Mea culpa. I knew you had the deferral on lockdown, didn't know if you were going to overlook his question in your PM. I will never again underestimate you.

$70k, or $67.5k? I thought $67.5k is the most they hand out to non-Darrow folks.

My question was more inquisitive than accusatory... I wasn't sure if they were changing things up... sorry if the question came off the wrong way.

lol anyway...back to my original question. I'm above both medians. Is it ok/acceptable/common to try to ask for more money? Or is the initial offer pretty much it?

I agree with what ScrabbleChamp alluded to - the only higher amount they give is the Darrow. So unless you want to ask for a Darrow invite, you've probably maxed out.

And to be clear, we do not recommend asking for a Darrow invite.

Hi guys, I'm going to the first preview weekend and renting a car. If anyone wants to catch a ride to or from DTW, I'd be happy to give a couple people a lift for $20/person. I'm landing at DTW at 1:10 PM on Thursday 3/15, and will be leaving campus around 2:30 PM on Saturday 2/17. Looking forward to seeing Hogwarts in person!!!

I'll post this again:

I'm going to the second ASW, flying into DTW on the 27th around 1300 hours. If anyone needs a ride from DTW to A2, let me know. I have to rent a car while I'm there (need to find a house), so no charge for the ride as the expense would be incurred either way.

+1, I would've done this too, except I'm driving from New England so don't even know which way I have to drive. But if anyone needs help getting around town, just let me know and I'll give you a lift.

I'm going to the first, and will probably be flying into DTW. Not sure exactly what time yet (will update) but if people want to split a cab to A2 they should PM me!

Also does anyone know when we find out about hotel/roommate assignments?

If I remember right, you get your room at the front desk at the hotel when you check in. I don't think we had them before...but who knows maybe we did.

Is the bus system in AA pretty easy to figure out? I was going to rent a car so my wife and I can explore and look for housing during ASW, but being under 25 makes renting a car quite expensive. My quick weekend trip to Ann Arbor is already getting pretty pricey coming from the west coast. Still worth it though.

The bus system is easy, [url]theride.org[/url]. The problem is most buses only run every 30 minutes so you're going to waste a ton of time waiting for buses if you plan to travel around looking at houses...

I believe that someone ITT said something about renting a car under 25 and being able to get some sort of a discount from your undergrad or even from UMich. (worth checking)

Also, I think you can get a similar deal if you have AAA but I was 25 a few years ago and things might have changed since.

Check your insurance company too. Mine (USAA) had a deal where it was waived. Also, check if your policy covers your rental...usually it does the same as if it was your car and the rental insurance is a rip off.
