Hi, I am in the exact same boat. This all seems like a hassle, maybe i will enroll at local TTT instead?


lol the skress is so real!

We could just ignore it and eventually become dumpster roomies. Although i imagine the winter won't be kind to us.


HAHA not kind at all. Apartment searching sucks already...it sucks even more when you're miles away!

Keep an eye on your PMs in June; I'll probably take you up on your offer. You sign in the same neighborhood?

I'll join you guys as well! Moving late June

Sounds good! Looking forward to it. Do you know where you're living?

Not 100% yet, but I will likely end up somewhere in Lake View/Lincoln Park (wherever is dog friendly and close to the red line), what neighborhood did you end up signing your lease in?

"Lakeview" -- Paulina Brown line. What kind of dog do you have? I have a 75 lbs lab/pit mix, so I jumped on this place. It's not perfect, but I like it a lot.

Can anyone with no established credit (K-JD) speak to finding housing? Do you need a cosigner for sure?

I'd be up for meeting for drinks. There is a place in Andersonville I absolutely love.

I have a 4 month old Boykin, she will probably only get to be ~30-35 lbs fully grown so I'm hoping it won't be too difficult to find a place that can accommodate. Also I ate at this fantastic brewpub off Southport while I was up for ASW called Corridor.

I was surprised to have more age/breed questions than weight/breed questions. You're crazy for getting a puppy! Lol. Living with a roommate/SO? ever been to Montrose dog beach?

I haven't but I've heard it's great from a couple of our friends in the city with dogs, and yeah I'll be living with a SO who is (hopefully) going to be working from home most days of the week. We should have puppy play dates!

Just signed for a place in Lakeview as well. Going to be right off the Sheridan red line stop.

For anyone currently looking I had really good luck with Jason Gold from Live Well Chicago Realty. Contacted them last Wednesday and had a nice place signed by Friday morning. I had been looking for a month or two previously with Student Space and a couple other local rental companies with pretty frustrating results.

Hello guys,

Has anyone succeeded in asking for a deposit deadline extension?
Mine is April 21st for NU and still haven't heard back from some schools regarding Scholly.

Trying to read as much for leisure as I can before law school. Any good book recommendations? Nothing too serious LOL. Non-fiction that reads like fiction is fine.

there's a book thread in the lounge, just yesterday made me realize I don't read anything new so I picked up a few recent pulitzer nonfiction winners on amazon. Will let you know if I like any of them!
