FYI for summer starters...

Me too!!! We're neighbors!!!
Just looked at the availability and the 1L apartments are really filling up! I'm worried they'll be gone by the time I'm read to deposit.
I didn't like the idea of moving into someone else's place (with all of their stuff) in May, then moving AGAIN in August. I called Mariya at Prime Student Housing (734-761-8000), the very cool lady who is in charge of the 1L apartments. She told me that some of the subleases are for students who are actually moving out permanently in May -- and thus, there's the option to stay on in the apartment after the summer. So I'm moving into 520 Packard in May and staying there through 1L (and possibly 2L and 3L, if I like the place enough).
There were NO apartments like this available in Forum, but there were a few in Packard and I think a few in some of the others. Also, even though the apartments themselves are $1000/mo, the subleases usually go for less. At the time I was looking, I think one in Packard was going for $800 or so, but that was in December...I don't know if it's still there.
Also, even though the apartments come furnished, they are letting me request an unfurnished bedroom so that I can bring my own bedroom furniture.
I'm excited about being a 6 minute walk from the law school and living with other law students. Plus, the 520 Packard apartments have huge windows, so they are bright and sunny, which is a big deal to me.
Hope to have some summer starter neighbors!
