Yeah I'm gonna try to sniff out the diamonds in the rough the guy on FB was talking about. Like I said earlier there have been some attractive listings on UChicago marketplace. Regents/Shoreland is a backup for me at this point


yeah I'm surprised at how many good listings are on the marketplace

Thursday. For Bar Review.


Am looking forward to this. A friend's sister is an admitted student at Pritzker, wondering if I'll see her there

If you email them literally now you may still be able to work something out.

Yea, I would be surprised if they turned you down. Shoot over an email.

What's the best way to get to campus from Midway? Google maps is telling me to take the 55 bus. Yes/no?

I think the 55 is fine and I've taken it from Midway several times, but just know that it goes through a rough stretch of Chicago if that shit sketches you out at all. Bags and shit are always a pain on buses, but that's kind of w/e.

Orange line to downtown on the Roosevelt exit. Then uber that shit or take a bus, likely the six. That shouldn't take you too far out of the way and I would feel a lot safer doing that. But I've never riden the 55.

Yeah, totally depends on your background and what you're comfortable w/. The bus goes through legitimately one of the more dangerous parts of the US (the Englewood/Normal area if you're familiar w/ that sort of that or for w/e unfortunate reason you're a Chief Keef fan). But you're also on a bus in broad daylight so nothing is really going to happen to you beyond possibly bothered for change, and if you have issues w/ occasionally being harassed by panhandlers there's something you should know about HP... Basically I'm forced to conclude Mal and Wheninlaw are just scared of black people.

Hey all! Deciding to put my deposit down at Chicago and accept my awesome scholarship. If anyone is looking for a female roommate next year, let me know.

There's really a world of difference between "being scared of black people" and not wanting to, as wheninlaw said, take a crappy bus through a sketchy area. I get it, I don't want to take the bus either if I have better options. It's not like they're making those absurd claims that "Hyde Park is a ghetto" (which you definitely hear some people around school make...those assholes are just scared of black people).

First off, any of you weird forum bros come at middlebear, middlebear will make you regret it. In third person, even.

I've actually been really pleasantly surprised by HP--definitely a lot nicer than a lot of the naysayers make it sound.

And I was going to take the 55 to campus, until the ground transportation lady at Midway had a freakout at me and practically dragged me into a cab. In the middle of the damn day. That was ridiculous.

I hope y'all realize I'm just giving Mal and wheninlaw a hard time. While I'm still not sure exactly what people think will happen to them on a bus in broad daylight, it really just comes down to I'd rather have the $30 that'd go to an uber to spend on booze.

Hope all the 0L's are enjoying their time so far. Feel free to PM if you have any q's.
