I am from the west coast, so ideally, I would like to take care of my housing search/ visiting campus/ ASW stuff in one weekend. My concern with doing Friday- Sunday, which is my current plan, is that Friday and Saturday are going to be filled with ASW activities and that will only leave me Sunday to look for housing... Is that enough time/ Are most leasing offices open on Sunday? Will we have time on Friday and Saturday to look for housing?
Can current students who found housing at ASW chime in? Or post the schedule from last year? I've been checking the website for an updated ASW itinerary, but it hasn't shown up yet.
Any input would be greatly appreciated since I want to book my flight and hotel soon! Can't wait to meet everyone.
I have similar questions as Copacetic. I also plan to look for housing during ASW.
Lots of students will be hosting (including me). You'll be given a survey soon asking if you want a student host, along with a bunch of other questions about the events you'll be attending.
I personally would do Thursday-Sunday simply because it's more fun haha. Penn was my favorite ASW when I was visiting. There's Thursday night events and Saturday's end pretty early in the afternoon, so you could spend lots of Thursday and Saturday looking for housing, too.
My personal opinion is that the internet can really give you a ton of information on housing and you can narrow it down from there. Also, there are lots of places where you know exactly what you will be getting and for what price, because so many law students live there (Left Bank, Domus, Sansom, 2400 Chestnut).
