Current 3L looking to find someone to take over apartment right across from HLS
Hi all, congrats on getting into HLS! I'm sure many of you are trying to figure out the best way/place to live. My roommate and I are both 3Ls graduating in May and are looking to find another law student to take over our awesome
apartment at 1580 Mass Ave (a condo building that is literally directly across the street from Wasserstein, the main HLS building).
While living "off campus" is a little bit more expensive than living in the dorms, it is unbelievably more comfortable. My roommate lived in both Hastings and the Gropius dorms before moving in here and dorm-life is not fun. Shared bathrooms, tiny rooms, and tiny single beds with thin mattresses dating to approximately 1985.
Our apartment is 2 bedrooms and 2 baths with a full kitchen and large living room and a parking spot. We currently pay $2,300 a month (split between the two of us) plus utilities. Since neither of us have a car we rent out our parking spot (because there is almost no good parking around campus we are able to get $200/month for the parking spot). We're also looking to sell the furniture in our apartment. It's all been used for only 3 years (my wife who was also an HLS student bought it 3 years ago and is now clerking out in STL). So basically, if you like the place you don't have to worry about finding and buying furniture, getting it delivered and moved in, etc. The furniture includes Beds, mattresses, dressers, desks, TVs, kitchen table, cooking utensils, couch, and futon.
