Hey guys, I'm a little late to the game in terms of the housing search. I had a few questions about it.
-Does anybody know anything about the Copeley/UG waiting list? I just signed up last week, they told me that I would hear back in June. Do I have any shot? (Also, they told me that the application is open to single students too this year, so that lowers my chances even more).
-Follow up to that, if I wait until June to hear back about Copeley, will Ivy already be filled up? Ivy is my default second choice, but is that a mistake? It looks like a lot of people really hated living there.
-Anybody have any first or second-hand experience with University Heights? Their online reviews were significantly better than Ivy's. http://www.apartmentratings.com/rate/VA ... ments.htmlhttp://www.apartmentratings.com/rate/VA ... rdens.html
-Is living further out and driving in generally a bad idea for 1L? (Not too far, I'm talking 15 min. commute at most). I'm sure it would make socializing harder, and I've also heard bad things about traffic.
I would appreciate your wisdom on any of these questions. Thank you!
