I also like how parking passes for the academic year begin October 1st...

Thanks for the clarification!

Also, just wondering if everyone is seeing the same thing. I paid my deposit a while back but online, it still shows the option for me to pay my $750 deposit. It's making me wonder if the payment went through. Or it's just how the system is and it doesn't show that it has been paid..

You can log into the status checker and it should have a final update that your deposit was received.

All the brimming with excitement I felt towards the latter end of my cycle, when scholarships were coming in and final decisions were near and obsessive 0L anxiety of researching hornbooks was at its fullest, has slowly waned to what now can only be described as a Stringer Bell impatience for the inevitable...

I may have actually taken everyone's advice too seriously and am currently on track to binge drinking my way towards morbid obesity. So that's my summer.

Careful, don't forget you also have an impending 1L 30 coming after school starts.

Isn't conventional wisdom that you'll get simultaneously fat from sitting in the library, and skinny because Adderall is a hell of a drug?

I've been a ninja on TLS for a while and finally decided to join.

This may have been discussed before, but I've heard many apartments have either 60 or 30 day notices for tenants leaving. Do you think a lot of new places will open up starting July for early August move in? I'm hesitant to go for something now if a bunch will open up in the coming weeks.

Welcome to our menagerie. 8)

I'm a 0L from not-Chicago, so take with a grain of salt. But my read has been that open season has just started a couple weeks ago. I get the impression that more places will open up in the next couple weeks, but that they'll be pretty similar to what's already out there in terms of location and price. If you see something you like, I would jump on it instead of hoping for a better/cheaper substitute down the line.

I'm also a 0L not from Chicago but I visited last week to look for places. If you're interested in living in any of the high rises close to campus (Onterie, McClurg) my understanding is that the prices will increase throughout the summer, so it's better to jump on those ASAP. Or at least that's what they told us (anyone feel free to correct me if I'm wrong).

Thanks! I think the high rises are in high demand. I talked to a couple of those places a few weeks ago and they said there was already a waitlist. I'm looking for anything that's a reasonable walking distance to the school--maybe ~ a couple miles. I'll probably go soon and secure a place.

If you're like me and not used to Chicago weather, your definition of "reasonable walking distance" may change based on 90-degree heat and whiteout blizzard conditions. :lol:

On a related note, whenever I tell people I'm going to Chicago for school, they always start off their reaction with some variant of "lolcold."

Same here. My best friend keeps sending me links to a million jacket sales. I know it's really cold but I think everyone I know used to 50 being the coldest it gets imagines I'm moving to like Alaska.

Well once you're down in negatives it all feels the same, so its not too different from Alaska. Sorry :lol:
