Welcome to Michigan everyone! First, if you have any questions about MLaw or preview weekends (don't miss the SFF auction if you can help it- it's amazing), don't hesitate to PM me. (You can also write back here, but I don't come here much these days)

I'm also joining the slew of housing posts (I found a great subletter here last year): I have a one-bedroom an 8-minute walk from campus (near Main Street; the summer social scene/art fair/film festival/etc. switches to Main in the summer) in a quiet grad student house with AC, free laundry, and parking. I'm a 3L, so there is also an option to take over the lease in the fall. Place can come mostly furnished (couch, table and chairs, and bed) or unfurnished. PM me if you're interested.

Welcome, class of 2016! :)

At the risk of turning your "meet new people!" thread into a "desperate 2Ls & 3Ls seeking subletter" thread, I'd like to offer my place up to any summer starters for the coming year. It's a basement, one-bedroom apartment a very short distance from school. Free parking, free laundry, free utilities. Not bad!

Also, if you have any questions at all, please let me know. I came from across the country to Michigan (having only been to the state once before - for the ASW!), so I'm happy to give any advice about transitioning to Michigan that I can.

I'm looking forward to meeting some of you at ASW, and in Fall 2013!

I loled. I can't say I really blame them, but I'm going to live in the LC so every time a sublet post comes up it's very anticlimactic for me. Somebody post something cool!

Michigan 1L right here. For those of you summer starters who need a place to stay, guess who has the perfect 3-minute walk from the law school apartment in Ann Arbor? This guy. It even comes with the greatest roommate ever (roommate is staying in Ann Arbor over break to do one of the clinics). I will be doing a firm job somewhere acting like I'm busy.

Craigslist link: --LinkRemoved--

I'm willing to answer any other questions. Oh, and if you're a summer starter, it'd be a great advantage to live for a couple of months with a guy who just went through the 1L gauntlet.

PM me.

Serously. I am going to establish a new rule for 2Ls and 3Ls posting here and in the Facebook group:

If you are going to give us a post about how awesome and available your apartment is this summer, fine. But you have to include one of the following:

I. Something awesome about the law school that I am unlikely as a 0L to currently know about
II. An awesome story about you drunk while in law school and all of the fun you had
III. Kate Upton's #
IV. All of the above.

If you can't include one of these, I'm sorry, but I am not interested in your post about your super convenient apartment.

Still have nothing but love for you though!

I'm not sure I understand why they don't just start a separate thread for subletting. Then the people who want to sublet and the people who are trying to unload their apartments can find one another without any more flimsy "Welcome to Michigan! Not to threadjack here, but -threadjack-."

(No offense meant, btw. It's just kind of irritating.)

Totally sorry, folks. I had no idea that it's apparently an uncool thing to post about your apartment here. Given that I have no Kate Upton numbers to offer (indeed, it's hairy roommate), please ignore my post.

so i read about this guy in the "law quadrangle" alumni magazine they sent and now i want to read one of his books http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Paul_S._Kemp

if any summer starters are looking to sublet a place, let me know. i live in a 3BR apartment on packard street, about an 8 minute walk from the law school. doesn't look like my other 2 roommates will be subletting their rooms, so likely that you would have it to yourself. Rent is $600 plus utilities. email me at nyrangers890@yahoo.com if you want pictures, etc. the apartment is fully furnished. i'm flexible on the dates you'd need it for, so just let me know in the e-mail.

Hi All,

I've just posted a beautiful house, a huge three-bedroom or a big four-bedroom, available for the summer. It's .3 miles from the law school and very, very cheap. Take a look: --LinkRemoved--. Please get in touch if you want to come by; this one is priced to move.

You guys are not following the 'advertising for sublets' protocol set above. Disappointing. Come on give us some fun stories about Michigan Law already!!!

Hi all, 1L here. Not here to plug a sublet, but just to officially make myself available for any questions if you have any. Feel free to PM me or ask ITT. I know it was really helpful to me when current students did the same last year.

Seriously people, follow the protocol. It's not hard--you just have to post one of those three things. If it is this difficult to hear a fun/funny story about UM Law I am very concerned.

BuckinghamB--thanks for your willingness to answer questions!

Mine are:

1. What's the social scene like with the law school crowd? Do you guys interact much with people in different sections and/or outside of the law school?

2. Mich is known for its friendly vibe--especially in comparison to more gunner-oriented schools. Is this accurate?

3. What's the mood on campus with regards to jobs? Michigan seems to be dropping off a bit in the recent years OCI results. Are people nervous/worried? Any idea why this is? Some have suggested Mich may have more self-selection for PI and smaller market firms. Thoughts?

I'm definitely curious about this as well. My boyfriend goes to a tier 3, and even there he says there are a ton of gunners and people who try to "game" each other. Makes me nervous.

Another question: If you joined any law assocs or clubs, how much time did they tend to take up during 1L year? I'm very interested in getting involved (not doing so is one of my biggest regrets re: undergrad), but considering the workload I don't want to overextend myself. Any advice?

And thanks :)

Just got accepted yesterday and I will definitely be attending this Fall! I will also be going to the 2nd Preview weekend in April and look forward to meeting everyone there! I am from the Metro-Detroit area and have been to UMichigan/Ann Arbor many times. If anyone has any questions about the area or life in Michigan, I'd be happy to answer as best I can!

PS: for those of you that haven't been to the campus or have seen the law quad in person, the pictures just don't do it justice. Seriously one of the most beautiful places I've ever been!
