I heard about the pipebomb at Davis! That's so crazy, in sweet little, quiet Davis... there was also a small bomb detonated at an armed services recruiting center in NYC early in the morning, but it's NYC and not such a crazy thing to believe (haha).

OH AZOR! I've been thinking about the cost v. QOL benefits of finding a split duplex to rent. I wouldn't care about top or bottom level, but I'm looking for a one bedroom, but with enough room for me & my SO... and my little pug. We don't really like the idea or feel of large complexes, but I haven't been able to find many duplexes on craigslist... most of the postings are all for apartments in the same complex. What are good areas to look for duplexes? I don't think we can afford rent on a house, and we're not really looking to live with other people, so I think a small duplex is the best idea. Are there many within walking / biking distance of campus? And how much do they usually run? I'm going to start contacting those reality firms, but I'd like to have a ball park cost in mind, and maybe general location ideas as well. Moving is such a burden, and I'm still really hesitant to start making plans because I'm still waiting to hear from Boalt, and I don't want to have to confront a rejection by making alternate arrangements until I get a letter that confirms my doom!
