Just spent the weekend in WS looking at apartments and signed a lease at the pines at bethabara.
Super excited and a little scared.
You might be the first one on this thread to publicly commit to WF. congrats!
what made you chose that apt complex?
woohoo! Assuming no last minute full rides anywhere else, I'm going to Wake!
I looked at 4 places this weekend. One was some townhomes (can't remember the name but started with an s) that was cheap, dumpy and not in the best part of town.
Then I looked at the two crowne complexes which seemed a bit pricey. I was told both places could get pretty loud on weekends (lots of undergrads) and that the walls were pretty thin. They are close to campus, about 5 minutes, but I wanted somewhere quiet.
The pines at betharbara are condos (meaning their walls have to be a lot thicker than apt walls) and got a one bedroom on special for $599 a month with free cable and first months rent free. It's about 5 minutes from campus but they are a lot nicer, have 1 and 2 bedroom floorplans, huge porches and cater to the law/med school crowd. No loud partying or annoying undergrads. Plus it's a gated community and you can get a personal alarm system in your apt.
I loved it. Perfect size, safe and quiet. All of you should move in too so we can carpool!!!
