pre-1L GW Summer Logistics

Postby SHANbangs » Mon Mar 28, 2011 10:33 am

Hey guys,

I'll be attending GW in the fall, so I am wondering what is the best timeline to high tail it to D.C, start housing search (if I am not living on campus), and get oriented with the city? I currently live and work in Toronto. For example, when would be a good date to leave my job?

Most apartments in DC, especially those near schools, open up in either May or August. Since you'll be starting your search from scratch, you're much better off trying to land a lease in May - also, you'll want to hop on that before all the Kongressional Kiddies get here for the summer and start saving the world (and takin yo' leasez).

Might find it helpful to also ask here-c/o 2014 thread viewtopic.php?f=7&t=142603

Also, there are current GW students you can PM here viewtopic.php?f=4&t=145400

mi-chan and dood off the top of my head are regulars around here so they would probably respond in a decent time frame.
