Let the record show I am happy for you, but the fact that I haven't gotten mine yet and we want the same thing is like a punch to the throat.

Wait...you applied for couples housing right?

No, not that i can think of. the only other thing that could possibly go through a third party vendor is cable tv, but that's provided by columbia as well (if you live in lenfest). you sign up with them.

http://cuit.columbia.edu/cable-tv/cutv

Application will be available mid-july.

hey me too! 1 BDR at 420 W 116th. What unit are you? I called them to ask about floor plan and they said they didn't have anything :(. I'm getting in touch with the liaison to see if I can talk to someone about a previous persons' experience.

what do you know about the place? is it spacious? I never visited them

Ugh, us and our complicated room requests. I should have pulled my devious couples' housing plan after all.

So my mother is a creeper and sent me the following via email

Does anyone know how it is?


My host lived in that building. Her couples' one-bedroom apartment was amazing! It was gorgeous, spacious and a bit pricey although still less than Lenfest. I liked it a lot, and if cost wasn't such a huge issue for me, I would have requested that particular building. Can't beat living across the street!

yea I saw this from 2009 when I was researching it earlier this morning.

Have you seen the places? do you know for sure? I gotta put down $3600 by the 21st... which I actually don't even have on me atm (by the way how does one deal with this if they can't pay their downpayment atm?).. and I'd like to see pictures/talk to previous tenant before making such a commitment

I think you can just pay the deposit, and wait to pay the first month's rent until you actually move in.

I haven't seen the places but I'm pretty sure it's hard to find a nicer 1 bedroom for the price in a safe, close location. Also, I was under the impression that the $3600 includes first months rent. I think someone posted earlier that the school let them just pay the security deposit portion to accept and then pay the first month's rent when they move in to break up the cost. I would call housing about that, though.

Got my couple's housing earlier today - I got an apartment west of campus in a building off 125th St., so I'll be a bit of a hike away from the law school. I requested Law School housing, so I'm not sure why I'm over there. The building seems really nice, and my rent is reasonable for 1BR, so I'm not complaining. I think I got put in non-law school housing because I requested unfurnished (I can't fit in a full bed - too tall).

I'm in an unfurnished 1BR LS housing. I think they determine who get LS housing by lottery.

Has anyone who applied exclusively to the 115 St. law school buildings heard anything? So far it seems like people have posted about hearing from all of the other law school buildings, but not the ones on 115. I only applied to those, and am starting to realize that I may be screwed if I don't get an apartment in one of those buildings. My application status is still just "received." Please tell me no one has gotten housing in the 115th St. buildings yet.

Is everyone today a 1BR?

ETA: To answer my own question, it looks like everyone ITT who got an assignment today is in a 1BR on 116 or a studio? in Lenfest.

As a distraction from all the housing nerves (and because it's getting too hot for the ASW hoodies), I looked through all the t-shirts on the Columbia bookstore site and found a few CLS-specific items. They really could make it easier by labeling them or separating them out, but oh well....

Unisex:
One (LinkRemoved)
Two (LinkRemoved)
Three (LinkRemoved)
Four (LinkRemoved)

Women's:
One (LinkRemoved)

Ta-dah! Enjoy some CLS swag.

It sounds like they went through couples' housing first, which makes sense.

I'm in the same boat if it's any comfort. Hoping for sometime tomorrow or next week.

Ah, gotcha. Well, I'm still really happy with my assignment, my building seems sweet.
