PS. someone should make a facebook page for the 2017 class
I would get down here a lot sooner than mid-july. If you're dead set on MSU law then you should come down ASAP to find housing. Remember there are 46,999 other people looking for housing this year in E.L. The sooner you can get a lease signed, the better.
i didn't think about heading down earlier because i was thinking that if i am looking to rent a house, no landlord would let me sign a lease in april/may, to begin in august....they would be potentially losing money?
Bugsy's advice is credited. It's not an issue of the landlord losing money, as they basically always have their houses and apartments filled. A lot is gone already, as leases for the 2014-15 school year started getting signed on October 1, 2013. Get to EL ASAP so you don't miss out on a house. They fill up faster than apartments.
