I know its not on the list, but when I vistied there were plenty of cars in it. How can you park in there? - EDIT im talking about the "law school parking lot"
I have not picked out an apartment yet. I plan to do that next weekend. So how would I get to law school then? Assuming the apartments were not in immediate walking distance, I wouldnt drive? Would I take the bus?
Sorry for all the questions, but the parking permit form for cornell lots with the omni bus privledges is due today, and I am very confused.
Well, it's just something you have to figure out based on where you end up living, how much you like to walk, whether you mind hauling books around, digging your car out of snow, etc. I dunno. The benefit of driving is that you have a car to haul your books around. But again, the nearest permit lot to the law school isn't that close, so you'd still need to carry them some distance (assuming you took them home and didn't read at school).
The Tcat bus is pretty good. It's likely that if you live far enough away that you cannot walk (or don't want to in the snow), that you can take the bus. http://www.tcatbus.com/pages/system
I don't know much about the omni bus but I *think* it contracts with apt complexes, so if you use it would depend on whether you live somewhere where it is offered.
The permit form might be due today, but I'm sure if there is room in the lot you can get a permit later. I think I was looking into getting a permit as late as September, but decided not to. It's just that the lots fill up quickly. Maybe you should call the parking/transportation services office and ask them about the options.
You can't really park in that law school lot. First, it's almost always filled during weekdays, so it wouldn't be a reliable place to put your car anyway. Second, you can't get a permit for it. You are allowed to park there after 5 and on weekends, though.
