Hey everyone,

I'm an incoming 1L (female) from CA and looking for a new roommate. My old roommate just got off the wait list for another school. I have a 2 Bedroom lease at Regents for a very good deal. Please message me if you are interested!

Someone posted on the FB group today that they wouldn't be attending. No idea when they made that decision, but if it was today that very well could be another spot opening up. It's getting to where everywhere else is starting though so I don't envy you guys still riding it out :(

Psh, you don't need help with that, you need to get in off the waitlist and come join all of us in Regents!

I don't think Regents is overly conducive to married life, but yeah, I'd probably end up there this late in.

I think I've done this long enough. I'm going to withdraw tomorrow. In part as I'm in my apartment at Penn, my check is deposited, and I've already found that great Chinese restaurant which I'll be spending too much money at.

Still people dropping like flies I guess, crazy

Eta: What made it so easy for you to choose UChi over Penn but not NYU, and had you already moved into an apartment and stuff?

Hyde Park will be cheaper than University City. NYU would have been more than double for rent. Although I really don't want to move again, I still have a month to do it and I really love Chicago (and their LRAP)

Still nervous about housing, though.

I was admitted last year in early August and found a nice place to live, even after not looking for like 2 weeks. From what I've seen in the c/o 2015 facebook group there are still people looking for roommates, and last year I used http://marketplace.uchicago.edu/apartments successfully.

And congrats!

Great resource, thanks! Also, I'm glad to know somebody has made this tight timeline work!

yeah, I feel like switching for Chicago would be a lot easier than other places because of this.

Good luck to you. I hope you receive a phone call soon. A friend reminded me that it's just short-term discomfort... Moving is a pain but it's worth it for the right school.

I got the feeler call in June and heard nothing for months. So, I signed a lease in the northside, but got another feeler call yesterday. Then I got in...with $75k. :shock: I THINK THEY ARE BATSHIT CRAZY. I am so shocked I tried calling the office of admissions, but wait...it's Saturday. So I ended up e-mailing to basically say, "are you sure the decimal is in the right place?!?" I will definitely accept even if it means I ride the bus/train for 3 hours. I guess it was a good thing that for the first feeler call I told them of my NU scholarship. There's still hope!

After seeing Foxy's offer I almost wrote an email today concocting some reason why I might not attend without more but decided against it :?

:oops: I'm sorries. didn't mean to cause animosity! I realize, in hindsight, it wasn't very tactful. In my second feeler call I was told about students deferring for whatever reason so that is how I probably ended up with more money.
I will donate some of the money I'm saving to alcohol for my fellow 1Ls to make up for my insensitivity :)

Heck no, don't feel bad for half a second. You did exactly what anyone else would do. Congrats on the scholarship and welcome to Chicago :)
