Not sure who might know about this, but does anyone know have an idea how many people are still trying to get housing in the Lawyers Club over the summer?

I received my contract for the LC yesterday, and have to return it in 10 days to keep my spot. Assuming I end up at Michigan, I want to live in campus housing. But I'm also on a couple waitlists. My dilemma is that I don't want to give up on the schools I'm waitlisted at this early, but I'm not super into the idea of paying 65% of the LC lease if I back out and they can't find anyone to take the spot. Would I be better off giving up on the LC now and just planning to live off campus at Michigan?

Do you have any tips on applying for MAP? Not really sure how long to make my responses on the app. The app is four prompts with boxes to fill in about reasons for applying, diverse viewpoint, diverse experiences, and growth areas. I'm tentatively thinking about five sentences per prompt.

Thanks for the heads up by the way, I'm really stoked about the program!

That's fine. I did MAP last year, and that's all I remember filling out.

People can correct me on this...but I'm not sure MAP actually rejected anyone.

I don't know if MAP actually rejected anyone, but most people don't apply to MAP to begin with. Summer time before law school is just too valuable. :lol:

I got an email last week from Darren Nealy but it went to my promotions so check there! The email says if you have any questions, email Trudy Feldkamp at tfeldkam@umich.edu. Hope this helps!

Anyone have any recommendations for a BLACK hair salon (aka somewhere that does things like sew-ins, crochet braids, braids, etc) and hair store (aka somewhere to buy things like crochet braids hair, weave, kanekalon, etc) in or near AA (or in Detroit)?

If no one here has an answer (and I don't), ask via LawOpen once y'all get access. If y'all haven't heard of it, LawOpen is the all-student email group; it's really useful for getting other students' recommendations and advice.

Hi all! Is Planet Rock the closest place to go indoor rock climbing/bouldering around here?

Also, people were, in fact, rejected from MAP this year. Well, "waitlisted" but same outcome lol.
