Oops. I just realized that I sent Dean Pless an email with a bunch of questions on a Thursday. That was kind of an unintentional dick move. Sorry Dean Pless.

Good luck everyone.

Masochist, your avatar cracks me up. Every time I see it I want to watch "rejected cartoons" on youtube for the umpteenth time.

I am far too addicted to the convenience of my iphone. I loved having internet on my blackberry, then when I got an iphone, I became addicted.

Wow. Congrats Barbie!
I can't wait to figure out where I'll be living next but that won't be until June at least.
JW, how many bed/bath is that?


You don't think you'll decide on a law school until June?
and its 3bed/3bath and a full, finished basement....which makes me a VERY happy girl!

Sounds awesome! Is the FL room going to be freezing during the winter since it is just glass?
No I know where I will be LS wise before then (err I hope!!) but I meant the actual apartment where I'll be living, not the city :)

Oooh okay. Well I would advise to find a place as soon as you know where you're going. My experience with college towns is all the good places are taken by the end of spring!

Rejected too. Surprisingly unbroken-up about it, or maybe I just knew in my heart of hearts how very unlikely it was.

Personally, I'd avoid living right on campus. The people I know who do live there say that it's really, really loud.

I, and a lot of people I know, live just a bit off of campus and away from the undergrads. I love the location. There are problems with my building, though, and I'm considering buying a condo to upgrade.
