1) What banks are people using out there? I have Chase but there's none within 30 miles of my zip...
2) Best place for a haircut? :D

So, I just made a very happy and last minute decision to come to WFU. My fiancee and I are very excited!

Question: What things (other than deposits) do we need to have done by now? We have a place to live, I've paid my deposits, I know I have to get the immunization proof health form. What else?

We'll be living about ten minutes' drive from campus in a condo at Lytchfield Place. Won't be walkable to school (~5mi), however, I plan to bike and buy a parking pass. Are y'all planning on getting the off campus or splurging for the on campus? I called and was told that off campus is ~7 minute walk to the Law Center and on campus is ~2 minutes.

Oh, and congratulations to all of you! I look forward to meeting you soon.

Congrats and welcome!

I think you need to get the Dean's cert form done by August 1 but it doesn't seem like much else. You from NC?

You're there already?!?!? So jealous dude. I have 26 days.


The few days I've spent there have been awesome. I think it was a great decision to at least live my first year there. I haven't moved in just yet, only moved my things and set the apartment up. I can't wait to get completely moved in.

I'm not sure which bank is definitely the best, I just got an account at BB&T and it seemed pretty nice and convenient plus some free banking for students. As a disclaimer, I didn't check too many out, but I personally preferred them over Bank of America. I can't speak too much about it yet or what everyone else does, but the headquarters is in Winston-Salem and they looked like they had a good amount of branches in nc.

Congrats, man! Looking forward to getting to know everyone as well. For myself, I'll probably just give in and get the on campus one since it looks less of a hassle. I think we've got a few other things due besides those things, like the final transcript and dean certification, meet the healthcare requirement or fill out the healthcare waiver, and the photo for our IDs. Here is our to do list in case you haven't seen it: http://newstudents.law.wfu.edu/category/to-do-list/

I feel weird that I literally have to take a selfie and send it to them for my ID card. Kim K butt shot or duck lips?

I apologize if this has been asked before, but is there a way to get Microsoft Office/Word through the library or are we stuck having to buy it?

I didn't realize we had to upload our own photo. My life just got immensely more awkward.

Thank you all for the responses. I'm working my way through the to-do list.

Long story on the last minute change, but fiancee and I are very happy about it. Not from NC; moving down from NH the first week of August. We should be in W-S the first few days of August.

As for he/she who inquired about beer, Foothills is a great brewery right in W-S. Fiancee starts work on the 11th and since we don't start until the 15th, I'll have some time to kill during the day. What do people here say to a meet up at Foothills or somewhere else for lunch one day during the 11th-14th? It'll be nice to know a couple names at orientation.

I'm Brad, by the way.

Hey Brad.

I'm sure there will be tons of us around if you want to get together before orientation. And yeah - some of us TLSers met at Foothills at admitted student day :)

I am going to make Cricket my ambassador on this.

Anyone who is in Winston now, or will be before classes is more than welcome to contact me for drinks, dinner, bbq, or anything else they need as they settle in. It's good to have a network in place before classes, I was lucky to have Incubaetus, and I would like to return the favor for others. PM me and I'll give you my email. I am doing a BBQ at my house on Sunday the 27th for anyone who wants to join.

BTW - They take photos during orientation that you can use for your IDs

Best,

Ghost

Same thing goes for me as for Ghostbear, if you have a question feel free to PM me, and once I'm in Winston if you want to grab a drink and just meet up give me a holler.

Hey WFU 2017! I'm actually in UNC 2017, but as a long-time NC resident and somebody who heavily considered WFU for both UG and law school, I enjoy lurking around the threads for the nearby schools. Anyways, the most popular banks in NC are Bank of America, Wells Fargo, and BB&T. All of these are headquartered in NC and have branches throughout the state and nearby states. PNC is another solid choice, but not quite as many branches. I do believe BB&T offers some special deals for students of Wake Forest much like Wells Fargo offers UNC students. Hope this is helpful, and sorry to invade your board. If nobody has said it yet, welcome to North Carolina and I hope y'all enjoy your time here :D

your best bet on banks is Wells Fargo, Suntrust or BB&T. (I prefer suntrust cause they reimburse ATM fees)

Thanks all for the offers to meet up before classes start. I'll probably drop you guys a line later next week or so once I get moved in.

And that email was really surprising. For those who haven't seen it, they're currently over enrolled and they're offering additional scholarship money and more to those who defer until next year. It said it caps out at full tuition, but they would also offer a discount on the MSL program if one were interested.

They did this last year too. One of the posters (who I won't name without permission) took them up last year.
