Looks like I'll be moving in around August 1st, Orientation (and legal research and writing) starts on the 13th. To the person with financial aid questions, mine also has not appeared in ISIS yet.
I put down for a deposit at North Creekside apartments. Mixed reviews (but a positive upward trend), regardless they're literally right on the hike/bike trail that leads to campus, have multiple bus stops out front, and were not infested with mice (I saw some horrible things apartment hunting in Fayetteville). Real Estate in Fayetteville is a marvel, and I can have a two bedroom for a jaw-dropping price.
Overall, Fayetteville is a gorgeous city. Lots of trails, lots of hills, and so much GREEN. Everywhere. Apparently the city also experiences actual seasons. I looked at the Cliffs, and they were amazing, but my car is older than Moses at this point and cannot be relied upon to get me to/from campus everyday. They are having/had a vote recently that was aimed to expand the bus routes, and one would hopefully go up to the Cliffs. I do not know if this passed.
To give y'all that have not been to campus a little context: The law school is a building unto itself and is in an oustanding location, right over by the stadium and about 30 feet away from the student union. I took a tour of the facilities and everything looked great. Nice wonderful people in the law admin office, and I could not believe that someone picked up the phone and actually answered my questions in the Registrar's office. This would never happen at my undergrad. Also, coffee shop in the law library. This is my kind of study environment.
Excited to get back into the swing of things! See everyone soon!
