1) How small is an ECONOMY single? Are these rooms like former janitor's closets or something? Do they even have windows?

2) What in the hell do the letters and numbers mean in the room assignment? How do I know what floor it is on, etc?
PM me if you have the answers to either of these questions.
I heard the economy singles are "tiny tiny" and are "a tough way to save a thousand bucks." She said the windows are like a foot square or something, and most are "tucked away" on the fourth floor. But, unless you're dying to throw a couple of keg parties in your bedroom, I wouldn't sweat it too much..

Thanks Wilson. I finally just called her and got a person on the phone. Economy singles are about 100sq ft. That's 10 x 10 for those of you who are going into law because you can't do math. Tiny. I'm assuming some of us got them because there weren't enough singles left. Argh!

I chose UMich for a lot of the same reasons as previous posters (collegial, student-oriented atmoshphere and interesting classmates, etc.) and I told the adcom that in my "Why Mich" essay. I guess they liked it, cuz they let me in. I can't wait to get out there.

So summer kids - you got class in a week. How do you all feel?

also...Intelligentsia is right. Collectively, the Mich c/o 2011 posting, as well as "attending" list has slipped. We need to get back on the ball and catch up on UVA :).

as far as how I feel: well, I feel like I've been so busy with goodbye's, moving, etc., that I haven't even had time to think about the nitty-gritty of law school academics. Its all just going to have to fall into place when I get to AA. (which arrival is delayed until tomorrow because my dumb car broke down in St. Louis today!)

yes I made it out. I had to sell my car for salvage, if you can believe it! anyway, I rented a car and pulled into AA last night. My sublet is great! Downtown is full of people and the weather is lovely. So, everything has basically worked out.
Summer starters, we're fucking rich!
why are we rich?

I moved into my sublet yesterday. I recall some interest in tennis in the earlier pages of this thread. I'd love to play, and especially so before classes start. PM me or see my offer on the Facebook group.

mildmannered, I PMed you about your question. Glad you made it to A2 in one piece.

At least one Michigan 2011 person is alive and checking TLS :)

The summer starters are in class.

Other fall starters? DId you all fall off the face of the earth? Or at least the Internet?

I am a fall starter who is still around. Although, this being my first actual TLS post, I dont know if I should say still around.

Ironically, now that I'm unemployed for the summer I find myself spending much less time on TLS...but I'm still around.
