Just wired money and signed a lease for an apartment. Hopefully that's it. Suddenly, it all feels a lot more real since this just eviscerated my bank account.

I was originally using Linsey Ballas from Koenig and Strey to find a suitable apartment, help me figure out buildings, and all of that. She was incredibly helpful and if anyone is still looking for a place, I would give her a call. I really trust what she has to say because she warned me off from a couple rooms. But yeah, if you're like me and moving blind and want some piece of mind that someone can do the heavy lifting for you and check out places, I would 100% recommend her.

Yup. This is 0L purgatory. Maybe we should tweet to the Pope to shorten it... :lol: 9:30 am is too early for that. Sorry.

I want to cry at all of your nicenesses. Tears of joy, of course.

TWIST: All the free unsolicited outlines from helpful 2L/3Ls are intentionally wrong/sabotaged. Behind the Johann tweets and the ivy-covered walls is a 21st-century Lord of the Flies. Roving bands of gunners stalk the hallways, rapping hornbooks against their palms menacingly.

I had a meeting with my boss last week and her exact words to me were "You've checked out already."

Yup! :D

Does anybody at NU happen to own a boat? I saw a ton of them out on the lake. It'd be a great place to study when the weather is nice :P

The boats are pretty much placed there just to torture you while you sit in the library and slog through Pennoyer.

I'd still call them up and ask if I were you just to make sure your stuff is well on its way.

Yeah, I've just called and emailed them a few times about it already so I don't wanna be annoying.

:evil: :evil: :evil:
I just lost out on the too-good-to-be-true agreement at 900 N. Lakeshore. Verbally agreed to it on Sunday. I was hesitant to give out my SSN till I could verify the owner was who she said she was. Once I verified with the housing office on Wednesday, I sent her an e-mail saying I would give her my SSN. She just sent me a curt e-mail saying because of my repeated refusal to give her necessary info, the unit is no longer available. Dafuq.

Sigh, and my backup choice (at the Onterie) upped their quote by $30/month since Sunday, which brings it to an even $300/month price bump over what I was gunning for at 900 Lakeshore.

sorry to hear that. :( any chance they'll reconsider if you explain your reasons for the hesitation, or was it a flat out no?

and yayy, finally got financial aid info just now.
