Accepted for fall of next year w/ 75% tuition scholarship. I year off sounds kind of nice and so does the scholarship. Anyone else considering this deferred acceptance?

I'm going to attend a T1 this cycle instead. They only offered me 50% though, for 75% or more i would have considered waiting. Too much money to pass up.

Does anybody know if there's a closer airport than Detroit? I'm really not looking forward to paying expensive cab fare.

Or, is there a train that runs from Detroit to Lansing? I'll be taking my bicycle.

There's an Airport in Lansing. I think your flight will cost more, though.

There is a Spartan Shuttle that runs from Detroit Airport to MSU and they do offer student discounts. I want to say round trip costs 55 dollars for a round trip ticket. It's called the Michigan Flyer. Here's the website: http://www.michiganflyer.com/

Thanks to MSU for that, too, I suppose.

No worries. I was in a similar boat when I scheduled my visit to the ASD. I would have taken the michigan flyer but I would have had to wait about 2 hours at the airport because of the time my flight landed. I ended up using priceline to rent a car which cost me about 45 dollars total for 3 days plus about 20 bucks for gas which ended up being better than the shuttle because I used the car to look for housing.

Where you flying in from?

I'll be flying in from San Francisco, CA so I'm trying to get as much info as I can since I can't afford to visit ahead of time. I've considered renting a car but I won't be returning to the airport.

3.3, 152
Applied in March and waitlisted for eternity. Just got the news June 20 that I FINALLY got in! I was in tears I was so happy. The waiting really took a toll on me. To stay on the waiting list for like three rounds and never to get good news.....then finally a beacon of light. I had given myself up to the reality that I would have to go to Valparaiso. Such a good day! Can't wait to see you all in the Fall (unless Villanova pulls a fast one on me and comes out of the blue with an acceptance off the waitlist...but I'm not holding my breath).

I made my decision kind of late... is anyone still looking into housing? I've never been to the area. where is everyone living/looking at living?

I just figured out my housing a couple of weeks ago. Living at College Town (used to be called Dove's Crossing, I think). It's great. Not too terribly expensive for a single room apartment and it covers everything except electric. I even got them to throw in a free bus pass. Everywhere I looked for a cheap single room was a total dump and this place is actually decent. Also, wasn't looking for all the extra amenities (pool, sauna, gym, tanning) but the fact that they have it and it's not really much more than the dumpy places was a bonus.

I'm new to the area but was able to visit a few times and checked out a lot of options...Old Town (downtown Lansing) is an option and there are a couple of new loft style complexes near that neighborhood but nothing fit my budget...the admissions staff was really pushing the Okemos area...there is a clumping of apartments near a bus stop but without a car I felt stranded (Club Meridian & Knob Hill...someone else may be able to give you a firsthand review of living there)...there were some really nice condos for rent near those complexes on Fox Hollow Drive and Woodleaf Court in Okemos within walking distance to the bus stop I referenced above. I also looked at some condos on East & West Pond Drive in Okemos...they were OK but again I felt stranded.

I looked at a few single-family homes for rent in Lansing (there are a lot of them listed on Craigslist)...none were viable options.

I've been here a month and so far I'm very happy with this location.

Just found out I'm Section 1. Any other Section 1s out there? I also noticed that I only have 13 credits on my schedule...the writing class is missing. Does everyone else have that same problem? I thought that maybe the writing class was only a 1/2 semester class since it's only 2 credits and maybe isn't showing up quite yet...but wanted to be sure. Excited to meet everyone!

I was just looking at the new schedule all the 1Ls have, and I can't say I am a fan at all. Civ Pro and Contracts for two semesters seems like a must. Also, the fact that you have Crim Law in the Spring must mean Apol is no longer teaching. That is a loss for you guys because he was funny as hell. He had a whole career to get the jokes right for every case.

I just moved from Castle Pointe apartments to Chester apartments. It's awesome here because it is very quiet. There are only 32 apartments in the complex. It doesn't have all the amenities as other places, here, but residents can go to one of their sister communities for the pool and gym, etc. It is about 3 miles from campus and has a bus stop right there. They also pay for all utilities except for electric. Rent is under 600 per month for downstairs and just over 600 for upstairs. PM for any additional info....especially if you are thinking about getting one of these apartments so I can get a resident referral. :-)
