According to what rinkrat linked us from last year's ASW info, they will provide ONLY $150, but your flight must be over $200...AKA, you MUST spend $50.

They do. Some went out on Wednesday (according to Johann's twitter):

Huh. Everyone (all four of us) in the spreasheet so far is a Left Coastie. :P


In all this excitement today about new admits and ASW and putting real names to people, I just ordered yet another winter jacket I don't need (seriously, I have an entire closetful of winter jackets of varying weights: I do coats like most women do shoes) and my LS backpack (which I do actually need).

I know I'm supremely OCD for asking this, but can I alphabetize the list? it makes it easier for when it gets longer >_>

Sure. Sorry about bumping you down... it was because everyone was chatting on the line below. Wasn't trying to be rude or anything :oops:

Oh, no no I couldn't care less <3 TBH I didn't even know you'd bumped me down until you mentioned that and I looked at the sheet XD! I thought no one had posted on it after me. I'm just incredibly OCD with these things (I spent like an hour yesterday at work reorganizing and editing the NH admissions spreadsheet to make it look prettier :oops: )

Did anyone get the admit packet yet?! I got mine - it's an awesome Northwestern portfolio full of awesome information. Awesomeness!

You will all learn at ASW that I'm an especially sophisticated person - especially in my choice of language and stuff. Also, yay to more new classmates!

:-D so excited to get this!! I'm hoping my recent decision won't clay shipping too much. I need something physically northwesterny that I can spoon. I nearly ordered a sweatshirt yesterday.

:-D Ohai. While you're here, any idea if I'll have trouble finding housing in June? My lease here in Texas is up, and I'd really like to move in June.

My experience with housing went like this. Your milage may vary. My take is that this is a renter's market, and so you can get pretty much anything you want, starting at whatever time you want, if you do research.

Also, they will let us send stuff to your facebook group. I have friends who had great success living with 2Ls or 3Ls. No idea if that would work with your timing.

April

me: "Hi, I'm looking for an apartment for mid-July or early August."
every apartment building: "Whoa whoa whoa. Hold on dude. It's April. We have tons of apartments for May if you want, and maybe June."

May

me: "Hi, I'm looking for an apartment for mid-July or early August."
craigslist, padmapper: "Whoa whoa whoa. Dude you need to relax. It's May. I have a billion apartments for June or maybe July 1."

June, starting to freak out

me: "Hi, I'm looking for an apartment for mid-July or early August."
everyone everywhere: "Why didn't you ask?! There are THOUSANDS of options!"

What I heard from pretty much everyone close to school was "We get notice from renters 8 or 6 weeks before they move out, so talk to us then." However, some take waitlists of people to call when studios near school open up.

I'll add to Bumi's words and say that I've already contacted a couple of realtors that deal in rental condos, and they both said they'll be getting back to me ~45 days out from my expected move date when they'll have a better idea of which units will be coming available.

I was told that as well. I think it can be good to start researching now though so you get an idea of what neighborhood you want, your price range, and the general level of offerings. That way you'll know a good deal when you see one and will be able to snatch it up.

Yeah, but it's social gunning. Not LEEWS or exchanging notes on GTM or anything. :P

So I think we have enough people bringing booze to the meet-up; I'm thinking about changing my item to pizza. Is Gino's okay with everyone? I know some people have pretty strict preferences when it comes to deep-dish pizza... I'm impartial, it's all delicious to me.
