Just slapped down my deposit. Can't decide if I'm extremely excited because class starts in 60 days or nervous because class starts in 60 days.

Full disclosure: I'm looking for subletters for the summer.

But also, I'm a current 2L summer starter, so I'm here if you have any questions about Michigan Law, Ann Arbor in general, summer in the north, etc. I'm a major procrastinator, so I'll be around as I try to avoid outlining as much as possible!

As for the sublet, I'm obviously bias, but this house is awesome. It was totally renovated a few years ago, so it doesn't look like a typical college house, and the fourth room will have a current 1L summer starter in it for most of the summer.

The listing is here:https://annarbor.craigslist.org/sub/6054682116.html

Contacting on craigslist goes to my roommate, or you can message me here if you're interested.


And if you haven't decided yet, seriously Michigan is amazing.

FYI--

If y'all are coming to Preview Weekend, Phid House is throwing its semester party. There's also gonna be a wine-and-cheese event at the House for people who are interested in living there. The wine and cheese is from 7-9 and the party starts at 10. Phid has asked current students to share this information with admits because the materials you'll be getting from Admissions will say the party starts at 9 (and this is wrong).

Ha, I was convinced you had already deposited, especially after you reminded the rest of us of the deposit deadline. Congrats on the increased offer! That's excellent news!

Lol I was holding out on depositing until I got a scholarship because I figured I'd lose my footing if I deposited first. Thanks!

It's still very much in the making, should be filled up soon, but we the current students are making a google sheets file for summer sublets.

https://docs.google.com/spreadsheets/d/ ... sp=sharing

Unlike whatever the admissions office sent out, this is editable, so it'll hopefully be more up to date!

Congrats!

Once you've enrolled, I think you'll have access to the internal ratemyprofessor system Michigan has. Also you can read their bios.

Thanks for doing that! Will definitely make it a lot easier for people to get an idea of what's available.

Edit: Also, to everyone looking for a sublease, make sure you're clear about when the sublet would end because some people's leases end around Aug. 20th (or earlier!) which is fine from an exam standpoint, but a pain if you're waiting on a fall lease to start in Sept. lol

Hey Summer Starters! There's a FB group for us:

https://www.facebook.com/groups/1700760123558476/

You have to have your umich email before you can join (so you have to have deposited). I ended up having to list it as my secondary email on FB before it would let me join; it wouldn't ask me to just insert it on its own.

It only has six members right now, which is hella sad. So plz join!
