Oof. I knew that question was coming next, and I kind of avoided it mostly because, even as a native, I have trouble tracking down those kind of properties. I know mlive.com has listings. I've never had any success with ann arbor craigslist, but it's worth keeping an eye out. When I was living there I would wander around and just call the numbers listed on the rental signs on houses, but obviously thats not an option. This is kind of a lot of legwork, but it might be worth trying to hit up some of the subletters and asking who owns the property, and calling around.

I know there are a couple other ann arborites who're here, hopefully one of them will chime in with other suggestions!


There's a platform developed by a Michigan undergrad that I have found really useful actually - https://www.cribspot.com/rental/Univers ... -Ann_Arbor. I think it culls from all of the property management sites as well as places like craigslist and padmapper.

Pet friendly places include Woodbury Gardens, Woodland Mews, Lake Village, and Briar Cove. We looked at all of those and ended up with a townhome at Miller Maple. Since I've seen a lot of these places, feel free to PM if you want to know my impressions about any of the big developments.


Woah, cribspot seems great. I've never seen this before, so I'm assuming it's new (as in from the last 2 years)?

Yeah, I'm pretty sure it's new in the last year or so (or at least that's when they first started promoting it).

Last I heard, they were expecting a drop towards 270 over the next couple years. '16 was like 318 or something to start, down from like 360. Expect it to be in the neighborhood of 300, which is going to mean sections of 70-75. Each semester, you'll have two classes with that group, one class with half (so 37), and your legal practice with 18 or so. In reality, they're probably as concerned with hitting the LSAT median as hitting an exact class size.

I'm visiting today on my way to Cornell's ASW. The law school is gorgeous, as expected, but the streets of downtown Ann Arbor have sure seen better days.

This was rude. However, I will gladly give up the OP. I'm not sure how.

Really? I've been gone a couple years, but I always thought the South Main Street area was great . . . though many of the places to eat aren't super friendly on a student budget. East University and State Street weren't exactly nice, but I didn't think they were different from any the on-campus streets near any other major college town. What was wrong with it?

Maybe Serett was using "streets" literally. As in the asphalt/concrete that cars drive on. The potholes in Michigan are egregious right now...

This. I definitely have no complaints about what's in Ann Arbor (not that I had time for anything), but I meant the roads, themselves.

So accurate. At least they finally fixed the bridge going toward the stadium - 2 of the 4 lanes were closed for a while because it wasn't safe for that many cars at once.

Summer starters with scholarships - is there a scholarship amount showing up for you on Wolverine Access for the summer semester? Did I miss something about merit scholarships not applying to the summer semester, or is there a glitch with my account?

Hey everyone, I put down my deposit, and I'll be starting in the fall! What are people thinking as far as housing? I'm on the fence about the Lawyers Club.

They'll apply - mine originally listed 2 semesters worth of an award and now lists 3 semesters worth. If yours doesn't I'd probably go ahead and give them a call, but I'm paranoid like that.

It's like the awkward silence before an undergrad class ITT.
