All of the "Currently Available" apartments are either before June 16th or in September :(


Oh right, let me rephrase it: I see the currently available ones. I mean for people that have had access to the view/select window, if those apartments (the ones specifically only available in view/select) are the same, or if lease dates are dispersed throughout the summer?


It looked like a pretty steep bell curve centered at July 8th (give time to clean/paint/do maintenance after the previous tenant's lease ends June 30th). There were very few in mid to late June, but a decent number (~20% of total) with start dates in late July/August.

What is the typical response time for questions from the aid office? I emailed them over a week ago and still don't know some important stuff about how to proceed with my application which they seem to want in late May at the latest.

Personally, I've heard back within 24-48 hours whenever I've contacted the office. Did you email them from your Harvard account? I'm not sure if this would have any influence but I always made sure to use the Harvard email in case it did get a higher priority. If you did that already, I'd probably call.

Thanks for the info, it's useful to know it doesn't always take this long. I did try calling, and was asked "didn't you email us about this a few days ago?", and after confirming that I had I was told that I needed to email a specific person at the fin. aid office for an answer. That was about 5 days ago. Perhaps I'll attempt to contact that specific person by phone directly tomorrow.
