I am waiting on the same. The students I spoke with said that during the year they still had vacancies so I would be surprised if we couldn't get into one.
Do you mean the law school-specific 3-bdrm apartments or the UAH apartments that are open to all grad students? I requested the law school apartments on 115th St., and I really hope those are the ones you're referring to.
That is exactly what I am referring to. Also, are all housing options going to require a large security deposit. that will suck.
Good, now we just have to hope that this year's 1Ls didn't all suddenly decide they're dying to live in the 115th St. apartments! (edit: otoh, I hope the fact that there are vacancies even during the school year doesn't mean the apartments are really shitty. The ones I saw during ASW weren't, but of course the ones they show prospective students would be relatively nice.)
And apparently Columbia requires a large security deposit (looks like ~1st month's rent + $1000 from above posts) and expects us to come up with it fast.
