I'm giving myself about a week before orientation to move in. I honestly don't even think that's enough time to get settled into C'ville but I don't want to be bored either.

In Re Mac or PC?

I'd like to share my opinion on this and potentially save some of you incoming 1Ls some much needed cash. The things you need a computer for 1L are: taking notes in class (assuming you don't do hand notes), typing up outlines, doing legal research for LRW/ looking up case briefs, and taking an exam at the end of the semester (which must be done in Microsoft Word). A $400 PC surely suffices to do all these things, in addition to being ample for your leisurely netflix, internet browsing, etc. Seriously, if you are buying a new computer for law school, skip on the $1400 mac and save a G and go with the PC. If you already have a Mac then use it, it will work just fine just like literally any other computer. But the sooner you start minimizing all cost associated with law school the better off you will be.

Anyone living down at the Flats (new building on W. Main St.)? If so, shoot me a PM.

Another one for the first week of August. Hopefully there'll be other people moved into Ivy by that point so I don't have to spend 3 weeks in desolate silence. It should be fun :P

The first weekers will have to meet up! I'm turning my living room into bar-ish area, so we'll have to have some pre-orientation fun.

I won't be in until right before orientation, but I like your style.

Used to having people roaming in and out of my house, so no problem with the same thing in Cville. Feel free.

For when you guys get to Cville, check out Fridays after Five on the Downtown Mall. Also, I'll be back in Cville at the end of the second week of August if anyone wants to meet a rising 2L (send a PM if you want to meet up)

Hope everyone is just enjoying their summer. I was traveling for a few weeks myself. Still haven't locked up a place in Cville, finding it much more difficult than where I'm coming from in Salt Lake.

I signed a lease at Woodlands. Very nice place + I got a $800 dollar signing bonus. It's about a 10 min drive from the school but seems worth it for the size/quality of the apartment and amenities. Planning on moving in first week of August, looking forward to meeting everyone!

I miss the ease of finding housing in SLC (and the affordability as well)!! A lot more bang for your buck out there!

For sure. We did finally get a place today. Was a bit harder with our dog and my wife's wishlist but I'm very excited with the place we got and we're going to be out there the last week of July.

Would love to get together sometime. Hoping to meet some people and have some fun before the work and stress starts.
