MCB, I was going to ask on facebook, but might as well here - any headway concerning your own conflicting decision?

nope  :-\

I've said it before and I'll say it again. I don't think I could be paid enough to live in a dorm style place like the lawyer's club.

I'm sending in my app tomorrow just in case, but if I go to Mich, off-campus seems like a better deal.

totally. ideally i'll find a nice roommate and share a 2br (seems to be the best value).

prolly, but i'd pay for privacy over value any day (and i'm cheap, so that is saying a lot).

i'd go with a 1br...i like privacy too much.  The only way I'd do a 2br is if it had 2baths.

even a 1BR by yourself seems to be a better value than the Club. ;)

For sure.

As for the commute...there are plenty of apts within a 5-10 min walk of the law school it seems. Commute to me would be anything you'd have to get on a bus or in a car for. 5-10 min walk is nothing. Now, 3 miles or more, then sure, but even then the privacy is worth it.

Yeah, you'll totally find a cheap sublet at the least. btw I met a bunch of pretty cool summer starters- I think you could have a good section.

yeah, the trouble is most of those cheap sublets end a week or more before finals! locking in an affordable apt for the year from the start is my goal. glad to hear good things about the summer starters, from the looks of it half of them will be lsders.

BAFF.

any suggestions on finding a roommate NOT involving random people on CL?

BAFF, a novel ligand of the tumor necrosis factor family?

I think once people have settled on a school, it should be easy to find a roommate among the entering class on LSD or facebook or whatever UM2010 message board might be available on the official website.  So long as people are honest about the important questions (are you loud? are you clean? do you eat my leftovers when you come home drunk?, etc.), it shouldn't be THAT risky.   

 :D ahaha that is too funny. what an excellent question.

i managed to find an apartment as a summer starter....at first i was too lazy and was going to do LC, but then i thought about it....and i DO value privacy very much...so im going with a 1 BDR 1/2 a mile from the law school! i have NOT seen it yet tho. ahha how exciting, but im not really nervous.
i looked around a LOT before i finally decided, so i didnt feel like i was just rushing into it.
it is pretty hard tho, not being near there and being able to look at places etc.

tag. BTW, if I go, I'm now like 95/5 on apt/LC. I just can't handle sharing a bathroom with anyone, let alone 13 other dudes. Now, 13 girls... well, that just wouldn't work, because they'd spend all their time trying to get peeks at my awesome studliness, wouldn't they? Wouldn't they?

Coach.

Football.

(tag/FYI ratio=70/30)

I thought the football part was obvious, my bad.

It probably was. But I wanted to tag and Bouzie also seemed so exceedingly confused that it was worth the bandwidth. 

I actually got it but just didnt see why it was relevent to anything ;)

UM football not relevant to anything?!?!?!?!  i wouldn't say that out loud while you are on campus.  Its UM.  GO BLUE!!!

Because if rankings matter to you, their reputation rankings are equal; if money matters, the cheaper COA means the difference in cost is even more significant than the difference between their offers.  I was going to say this in the NYU scholarship thread, but I don't want to become known as the anti-NYU troll.  :)  If there were any job prospects for my SO in Ann Arbor, I'd almost definitely be going to Michigan.

Because you'll live in a shoebox apartment and not have enough money to really enjoy anything about the village/Manhattan. AnnArbor may not have tons of world-class entertainment, but you can at least afford a lot of what they have to offer.
Title: Re: University of Michigan Class of 2010
Post by: rtqw on March 31, 2007, 06:10:35 PM
I'm probably not making this decision based on cost - while NYU will still be more expensive even if I get an extra 10K for a PI job 2L summer, there are some possibilities for cheaper living if I go to NYU, namely that my parents may be moving within commuting distance of NYC. I don't particuarly like that option, however - so living situations won't be ideal at NYU, whether I pay $1500 a month to live on campus, less to live elsewhere and commute, or nothing to live with parents and commute.

Although I'd probably live off campus instead of the LC at Michigan, I would probably give the edge to Michigan in the housing category.

Basically at this point, I feel my heart is at Michigan and that my brain is (or should be) at NYU. I think NYU is a slightly better school, and better geared if I want to do public interest and just as good as Michigan if I don't. But I want to live in Ann Arbor and go to Michigan football games and walk across the law quad, and all that sort of stuff.

You should go to Michigan.  If you'll be happier there, it'll make you much more likely to do well and thrive in school.  It's something to consider at least.

I STILL haven't heard back from financial aid so I won't send in my seat deposit til then, but unless they tell me "you're not getting anything, plus we are charging you an extra $20,000 per year as a 'dork tax,'" then I'm there.

Michigan.  U can make up part of the diff during 2L summer (and maybe 1L since you have science background).  Plus lower CoL and more PRESTIGE.

The second best institution in New York versus the first best institution in Ann Arbor, according to USNWR? :)

Just read my Michigan vs. NYU thread and substitute any mentions of NYU with GW. It should work well enough.

But DC is awesome, and Ann Arbor is just OK. Plus, my 1st year CoL is pretty much free in DC.

EE, I vaguely remember getting some email saying that spots in the (Astor?) building were already booked up.  Do you know if all presidential merit scholars are still given free housing regardless of whether they've already committed?

The Aston, and yeah, they were booked up. I think they might give it to you in grants if you couldn't get a spot, but I'm not certain about this. Also, the Aston sucks... but they might be able to give space in Columbia Plaza, which is awesome. If I don't get the space there, I think my decision might be made for me... :)

EE, a friend of mine is a 1L at GW and says that he's considered an Old Man at 26.  Like, he has a prof. who's younger than he is. 

Just thought you might want to consider that piece of it.  :D 

If people hold doors open for me and give me discounts on food, that might not be so bad. :) Interesting, though... I can see why that would be. Most of the students there seemed to be young.

I love DC, and I had a great time at the ASW. I hope monserrat made it home OK! Last I saw her was at like 3am in a sketchier part of DC. I got Chinese food from a hole-in-the-wall that also sold burgers and fries. Best sesame chicken I ever had. My friend from NY said the same thing. We paid for it later that day, though.

Monserrat is fine... she has been on Facebook. :)

I have already been in touch with Michigan's gymnastics coach.  I'm an NCAA gymnastics judge, and I won't be allowed to judge Michigan while in school there, so I figured if I'll be considered affiliated, I want to have some fun with it and actually help out with the team.  The coach seemed surprisingly enthusiastic about that idea!

Michigan's low-ball grant offer has left formerly-enthusiastic me less able to fight off some of the arguments from more generous schools in bigger places.  I know I was talking about trying for a Mich-match at ASW2, but I don't know that I'll even make it that far... NYC schools put on a good show, and (in one case at least) better money.  An argument that's starting to get more sway with me is that I've lived the college town life: if you haven't and have any desire to, you should probably consider this an argument for UMich.  Also, if you've bought $100 of blue and maize gear, I'd keep that in consideration.  Looking at money and options and what I've experienced vs. what I'd like to, though, Michigan's back down to maybe 25% for me right down.

I'd still be really happy to go there and you all rock, though.

Anyways, I'm petitioning to be in the leaning towards Michigan category. I'm becoming more and more certain it would be a good idea to go to law school more than forty-five minutes away from home.

I like how you have our competing schools in brackets Bouzie, to make it easier for others to tailor their pro-Michigan arguments towards us? :)

NYC schools put on a good show, and (in one case at least) better money.  An argument that's starting to get more sway with me is that I've lived the college town life: if you haven't and have any desire to, you should probably consider this an argument for UMich.  Also, if you've bought $100 of blue and maize gear, I'd keep that in consideration.  Looking at money and options and what I've experienced vs. what I'd like to, though, Michigan's back down to maybe 25% for me right down.

I'd still be really happy to go there and you all rock, though.

Well, you'll be successful no matter where you go. I'm hoping that I have at least the option of joining you in NYC. :)

D'oh! Probably. I told you not to stick your tongue... um, never mind.

Seriously, though, what's wrong with you. I have a terrible cough and a scratchy sore throat that hurts like a female dog every time I cough, which is often, even with the Tussin. I have a fever (although I didn't have one when I went to the doctor--go figure) and a runny nose.

I object!  It's very nice in a modern kind of way, but the surrounding area is bland bordering on crappy.  The campus itself is definitely nice and shiny, but beautiful=Yale or Michigan maybe, but not Georgetown.

All I know is that I wanted to go to Georgetown when I was 13 because I liked their hats.

Ding ding ding! This is clearly delayed onset Ann Arbor disease.  I just happened to get mine while I was there and had to endure the airport and plane ride with it.  This sounds exactly like what I had.  I haven't had a fever since I was like 12, too.

If the bolded is true, then put me in the "Nope" column (or whatever) for Michigan. ;)

I think I got it in DC, though. Too much partying + around lots of people = decreased resistance + petri dish.

Sorry to hear about you being sick on your birthday, Monserrat.  I was pretty messed up shortly after the Michigan visit and have been scrambling to get on top of things at work where it was uncharacteristically busy for March.  I think I'm through the rush now and feelin' better, so it's time to really get down to business with this law school stuff.

I'm not ready to say I'm going to be in Michigan for sure in the fall, but I've been looking at apartments online and things are certainly moving towards a commitment.  I might even make some phone calls or emails or something today to get a little more information about some places.

AHEM to all our friends considering Chicago, a quote from A.W. Brian Simpson:

Quote
The Chicago students tended to be rather right-wing. They’re very hard-working, and they worked just as hard for a class in the third year as in the first year. Michigan students seem to me to be more sensible, more relaxed, and so on. And the student atmosphere I think is less competitive and more friendly and I prefer that. The Chicago students were intensely competitive. Students here are competitive, but it doesn’t sort of break up personal relationships. But I mean Chicago had the problem of students hiding books and so on.

Hehe....that's exactly what I'm dealing with.  Don't accept the school site unseen unless you know for sure that they have the program that you want...don't know what else to say.

Wish I visited the campus while I was there. At least I know how I feel about DC. I <3 The Metro.

I did some shotgun planning last night so that I could visit this weekend.  I'm so, so excited!  Haven't been to DC since 8th grade.

Nice! Let me know what you think. Take pics and post immediately! :)

my real first name (not the 4 letter shortened version i use) followed by the first 3 letters of my last name. ick.

Wait, so this is the user name/e-mail address that we use for all 3 years?

yuppers

And it involves odd 8 character permutations of our names? Wonderful...nobody better have taken my first/last name combo, it's 8 characters exactly :P

My last name is 8 characters, so if no one has taken it, I'm good.

Who's MM? ???

Matthew McConaughey

i totally wrote MM cuz i didn't even want to attempt to try and spell his last name..but if there's anyone who knows the spelling of names of very VERY hot men...it's hollowman...for sure.

no doubt i have a bulging file of hot man name spellings in my mental file cabinet.

i was also thinking about what his umich email address would be, since i think about email for at least 1 hour, 45 minutes a day. love me some email! 

metrodork?!?  aw, i miss you guys.  although i didn't really hang out with HM cuz he ditched us for some chick!

For those looking for email address permutations, here is the online directory: http://directory.umich.edu/ldapweb-bin/page?template=custom_search

I believe the 'uniqname' field is where you need to search to see if anyone has the same umich ID as you already.

I'm happy that my first initial + last name isn't taken and is < 8 letters. I also like that we get umich.edu addresses, instead of law.umich.edu addresses (nothing wrong with law school pride, I just like something shorter).

She's so warm and kind and maternal that it's really easy to forget how brilliant she is.  Then you remember that she had the highest cum gpa in the school's history until a few years ago. 

She was on the faculty panel at ASW and seemed likeable, and then the interview sealed the deal. :)

Also, Christmas is kind of religious. I mean, neither Easter or Christmas have anything to do with Christianity (except that it adopted the pagan rituals and changed names and some details), but still. Whatev, as long as there is a "winter" break! :)

Pretty amazing...I had a number in mind and they nailed it.  Add "telepathic" to Dean Zearfoss' repertoire.  I need to make sure that I get the loans with the finaid offer.  I would assume that if one school offers me stafford loans, all other schools would as well.  That seems to make sense anyway, but that doesn't make it true.  Anyone know?  Probably the only thing stopping me from mailing off my deposit right now.

I've been pretty anonymous as a poster, but I thought I'd add my name to the Michigan roster.  See you in Ann Arbor this fall! :)

Welcome tapper. Someone should confirm, especially since I didn't have to do financial aid for UG, but I'm pretty sure that unless you're convicted of drug-related crimes you'll qualify for $20,500 of stafford loans - your income/assets only determines what proportion of those loans are subsidized. But yeah, I'm not sure.

Yeah, pretty much everyone gets the max. Just like rtqw says, the only variable thing is how much is subsidized.

Got my official award notice - 8500 subsidized, 12500 unsub.  No mention of the recent scholarship, but I have the e-mail as proof!

That means it'll have to be updated. Any mention of need-based?

I have to say that Dean Z may be the single best thing about Michigan.  Definitely the best thing about Michigan admissions.

Wow, thanks so much.  I'm going to like attending with helpful classmates!

See...but I want the subsidized money! (who doesn't!) :)

I've had the max 8,500 from Duke and Georgetown...I would assume that auspices well for Michigan.  Unless something very odd happens with financial aid, I'm a wolverine.  You can count me in.  I've been humming hail to the victors all afternoon.  The school I wanted at a better price than I would have imagined...very happy girl today!

I think it's actually going to be a new building, so it shouldn't affect us.  And then when they have that space, they'll have more freedom to take care of things like bathrooms in Hutchins.

Are they adding more bathrooms? :P

From the student newspaper: http://mblog.lib.umich.edu/RG/archives/2007/04/01-week/index.html (and scroll down a bit)

Quote
Missing: Twix, Bathrooms; Found: Answers, Info
By Sumeera Younis

We have one of the most beautiful law schools in the country, some of the most acclaimed faculty in the world, incredible classmates –heck, we even have a Duby. So students often find themselves puzzled when they are walking up and down the second floor of Hutchins Hall trying to find a bathroom. “It can’t be,” they think, “No bathroom on this floor?” Being the logical law students they are, they know this can’t be possible, so they walk up and down the halls some more, thinking there may be a secret passage to a land of many, many bathrooms. Soon they find themselves broken, dying to pee, and shocked that the great University of Michigan Law School has a bathroom shortage.

Maybe it isn’t that dramatic, but hearing Michigan students talk about the issue of bathrooms would make you think it was. The truth is that despite the many amazing attributes our school has, we deserve to be in the hall of shame for some of our facilities’ shortcomings. Recently I visited the University of Toledo Law School just south of us in Ohio and noticed that all of their classes are in “smart classrooms.” They have chairs that swivel and are cushioned! They can download the notes their professor writes on the board to their computers! It felt like I had gone to a magical place of learning where anything was possible. And the bathrooms were practically in the classrooms. Ok, ok, so I exaggerate a little bit, but their facilities did blow me away, especially considering the fact that their tuition is a fraction of ours and we are ranked substantially higher than they are. (Rankings are a whole different discussion, though.)

So, are we doomed? Our facilities suck, no one cares, and we are doomed to hold it or, dare I say it...walk a whole flight of stairs just to fulfill our Constitutional right to relieve ourselves? After compiling a list of concerns that students expressed, I went to the facilities director, Brent Dickman. Other than the bathrooms, most of the other concerns involved temperatures in classrooms, flickering lights, and the drinking fountains. These are all maintenance issues and can often be corrected quickly if they are relayed to the right person. Whenever you have a maintenance issue you can pass it along to Lois Oerther (loiso@umich.edu) who has been very helpful in making sure the concerns are addressed promptly.

Brent Dickman is also a great resource in answering questions regarding facilities issues and has been able to offer some insight into student’s biggest concerns. Below are his responses to our students’ three major facilities issues.

Why aren’t the vending machines ever stocked?
There were concerns about stocking of vending machines and having a coffee machine in the basement. We have a vendor that owns and stocks the machines. The coffee machine that was in the basement had very little usage, and it wasn’t profitable for the company to keep it here. We do have issues with the company keeping machines stocked. I don’t know why that is, because they are losing money every time this happens. One would think they would do a better job of keeping them stocked. But Lois does call and keep after them when they fail to stock the machines. She has also mentioned the lack-of-bottled-water issue to them.

Why don’t we have better bathroom facilities?
Adding and upgrading bathrooms has been part of our master plan for quite some time. It is not an easy problem to solve. Adding bathrooms to the 1st and 2nd floors of Hutchins requires space that isn’t there. It will require us to convert a classroom or existing administrative space, which requires us to have space elsewhere. It’s a problem that will get solved as part of our larger renovation/expansion plans.

When can we expect to see better elevators in Hutchins Halls?
We are now working with engineers to design new elevators for Legal Research and to design aesthetic improvements to the Hutchins elevator. The University pays for elevator replacement and is only funding the Legal Research replacement this year. The Hutchins elevator will be replaced in a not-too-distant future year. But, at least it should look a little better by the time the students return in the fall.


---

Facilities issues can’t always be fixed right away, but the only way they will ever be fixed at all is if the administration knows that they are a concern, and this happens only then students are vocal about their needs. Our university has a lot of amazing qualities, and many of them came about because students expressed what was important to them in their legal education.

A girl can only dream, but one day we too may have swivel chairs!

This is still a possibility? (I mean, I can read, but I thought it was a done deal)

Still quite a possibility.  In fact, I looked at A2 apartments online today.

We'll see where I'm at after visiting Chicago this weekend, and also if my request for more $ comes through.  I'm thinking my decision will probably come on April 30th and not a day before.

Thanks guys  (and gals)!  Dental school is waaaay harder because there's only about 60 of them in the US.  You would think they would open more or increase class sizes since there's a serious shortage of dentists but apparently they don't think like I do.  ::)

You might need the kidney someday though. And I know you will need the body shots.

i guess if i'm doing a lot of body shots, i will eventually need the kidney, or part of your liver.

I told you.  I am six weeks older than you.  That means I PWN you.

I know. I have accepted this. But that must also mean that I PWN everybody else.

Except Jolie.  She PWNs us all.

did you just call jolie old? that's just mean :P 

(i just sent you a fb message)

Haha... well if I did, then I called myself slightly younger than old.

Write me back on fb and answer all my questions, pls. :)

Holy crap... our house went on the market Friday, and we've already got an offer.  But I think they're trying to lowball us (husband still on phone with real estate agent, so I don't know details).  But any way... wow!  I think our house looks awesome, and I'm glad other people like it.

We'll see!  They're trying to go $20,000 under asking, and we're not willing to go more than $5,000.  We simply haven't been in the house long enough to have that much flexibility, and it's been on the market such a short time that we're far from desperate!  Only four couples have even looked at it.  So we'll see how they respond to our counter.

TNT I'm doubting.  You will have endless numbers of Matthew McConaughey movies. I watched 'How to Lose a Guy in 10 Days' twice.  It was pure magic.

I intentionally have very few pictures of me between fifth and seventh grades.  They weren't my best years.  And they involved a lot of matchy-match outfits from the Limited Too.  I know I took photos at Sears in a layered plaid outfit with matching braces and scrunchies.  Maybe I can find it somewhere and scan it...

well, some cosmetic stuff, actually.  i guess it's not major.  but it'd still be a pain in the ass.

i have lots of marks/scars from my braces, which stayed on too long, that i want to get rid of.

I have lots of pictures of me in colored braces bands that corresponded to the season or holiday.

That's rather scarring, too.

Self tar?

(BTW, nice one up there now. Purty).

EDIT: It looks like it's looking down on my tar and laughing at me.

you totally made my night,  for some reason i have more respect for you now...

Since we were starting near zero, that's not saying much.  :D

Just for that, though, I'll leave the tar for one whole day. I'm a man, I can take it.

I intentionally have very few pictures of me between fifth and seventh grades.  They weren't my best years.  And they involved a lot of matchy-match outfits from the Limited Too.  I know I took photos at Sears in a layered plaid outfit with matching braces and scrunchies.  Maybe I can find it somewhere and scan it...

And  :-*.

There's a picture of me somewhere around this same time period (5th-7th) in a mesh tank top that had neon pink and green patterns on the front, short-shorts, and a fanny pack. Don't feel so bad.

"Hot: George Bush. Not: Saddam Insane." Genius.

My tooth just fell out.

I was biting into a bagel and a veneer on my front tooth came out. I look like a freakin' hockey player. Plus, I'm still sick.

Sigh.

Michigan has a good hockey team, you'll fit right in.

I feel like keeping it out for a day and telling people that I got into a barroom brawl. Anyone care to spin a story for me?

as long as you're not the winner in your story, it might be believable. ;D

True. But can we make the other guy a UFC fighter or something?

I am not kidding when I say I met a guy who wants to put himself through law school by being a UFC fighter.  I hope he succeeds, because he's a nice guy, but it just seems like a bad idea to put yourself through something that requires a brain by getting yourself knocked senseless on a regular basis.

I'm reappearing to confirm the rumor.  Mangina has successfully lulled me away from Michigan.  I sent in my acceptance of their scholarship offer about an hour ago &, as part of that, I must withdraw from all other schools...including my beloved Michigan. :'(

I loved the law quad.  I loved the faculty and staff.  I loved the michiganers (both current students and prospectives).  But, I did not love Ann Arbor...too much like Provo (where my undergrad is).  I just can't see myself living in that sort of stadium-centered small city environment for another 3 years (although the presence of all you cool people may have made it tolerable).  Right now I'm grasping to the thought that there are cool people everywhere...including at GULC.  Sure hope I'm right.

Can't say I'm not surprised, but I'm glad you made a firm decision. I'll find out tomorrow if I'll be joining you or not. Just waiting on my need aid offer...

Got an extension till Friday morning so they could process my financial aid app. I don't know if it'll be enough time, though. It's definitely cutting it close. If they don't have it done, my default decision will have to be "no", so it'll be between Mich and GW...

If you're going to google for it, the best song is:

笑える話 featuring イルリメ

That would be awesome. I'd love to hear ???? featuring ????. I imagine that's supposed to be kanji? It came up in a Google search, anyway. Maybe I'll download it... legally. On iTunes. Because I'm sure they have it.

House update: So, we had come down $5K, and they came up $5K, but we're still $10K apart.  We're not willing to come down any more, especially not since our real estate agent read off to us what other houses in our neighborhood are going for at our square footage.  We are being very reasonable.  I think the other real estate agent, who is from another suburb that's further out than us, doesn't realize that the market in this neighborhood is doing not only much better than the nation as a whole, but even significantly better than most DC suburbs.  It's only *slightly* even a buyer's market here right now... it's close to 50/50.

wow, congrats on Columbia.   Another one bites the dust?

Nope, not unless they give me a lot of money (read: cheaper than Michigan, CoL included). Apparently I missed their fin aid deadline, so I think the chances of that are slim.

Much of it is personal reasons, but I'd prefer not to go to school in NYC.

I think it's sarcastic.

House update: So, we had come down $5K, and they came up $5K, but we're still $10K apart.  We're not willing to come down any more, especially not since our real estate agent read off to us what other houses in our neighborhood are going for at our square footage.  We are being very reasonable.  I think the other real estate agent, who is from another suburb that's further out than us, doesn't realize that the market in this neighborhood is doing not only much better than the nation as a whole, but even significantly better than most DC suburbs.  It's only *slightly* even a buyer's market here right now... it's close to 50/50.

Are you buying or leasing in A2?

Leasing.  We came close to buying, but decided against it.  You?

And I know I met you at ASW, but I can't remember who you are in person.  Will you PM me your secret identity?

I got into Columbia today. Looks like they're copying Dean Z - they look forward with enthusiasm to the pleasure of welcoming me to Columbia Law School. With the underline in pen :)


Holy crap, congrats. Email? I called and still no decision on me. :(

wow, congrats on Columbia.   Another one bites the dust?

Nope, not unless they give me a lot of money (read: cheaper than Michigan, CoL included). Apparently I missed their fin aid deadline, so I think the chances of that are slim.

Much of it is personal reasons, but I'd prefer not to go to school in NYC.

Really on the bolded? But you can't turn everything in until they let you in, right? I mean, the copies of the tax returns... I don't think they have a school-specific form, do they?

Leasing. I don't know enough about the market up there to feel comfortable being able to quickly sell after graduation. That and I have horrible luck which means all the pipes would break, the roof would collapse, and a plague of locusts would appear all at once during finals if I had to deal with those things without the benefit of a landlord.

Just wondering, did you try to get a bit more money out of Dean Z based on your NYU offer?

I didn't - Since I got less money from NYU, I don't think it would have been convincing. I was surprised to get any money in the first place, it took three months after they started accepting and a letter of continued interest to get in. Michigan emphasizes the soft factors a bit more than other schools, and those are weak for me. I think I just got admitted because they need to raise their (relatively low, compared to similarly ranked schools) LSAT numbers :) Who knows, maybe I should have tried for more money.

EE - I submitted my LOCI much earlier than you (like, when I got held, instead of last Friday) - maybe that moved me higher up in the queue. I also applied initially way earlier than you. It looks like there is a trickle of acceptances in the past week; they may be releasing decisions as they make them.

Their deadline is Mar 1 according to the admitted students webpage. This is what they say when discussing the Need Access requirement:

Quote
Applicants for admission who wish to be considered for a grant must submit the Need Access application by the March 1 deadline, even if they have not received an offer of admission yet. While late applications from admitted students will be reviewed once completed, grant funds may be exhausted by that time. In such cases, late applicants who otherwise would be offered a grant will be placed on a grant “wait-list,” and may be offered institutional aid in the form of loans for all three years of the J.D. program.

Given the amount of deferrals, I'd expect they are not quite exhausted though. Usually things like that are said to encourage people to apply early - like MCB said it's a soft deadline. But as a side note, I never read on their (non admitted students section) website or in anything they sent me that they required Need Access.

I got my Need Access in before Mar 1, so I'm good there. But they don't even review the file until they have everything, so I doubt it counts. Le sigh.

Yeah, same here. I tell people I'm pretty much set on Michigan, and if they ask further tell them I still have an application out there to Harvard. But you're in a worse position since you getting into Columbia (which I think you will, we're pretty much numbers twins and you're older than me with a harder major) is more likely than me getting into Harvard.

I have begun wearing my Michigan t-shirt in public though, which I don't do with my Virginia t-shirt :) By the way, did you (or any other GW acceptees) ever get the GW t-shirt?

BTW, did Michigan not match any of your offers? Did you ask Dean Z? I'll bet that they'd match (and beat) CLS, at least.

i thought about asking but i liked CLS more than Mich and would have gone there anyway, so i didn't feel like wasting her time to ask for $.  they should have just given me $ to begin with, they are the only school i got into that didn't give me $

Dayum, girl! Yeah, though, I agree. It's surprising. I wish I was a fly on the wall in the meetings where they decide this stuff. I'm so intrigued by the whole process that I could really see myself being the Dean of Admissions somewhere one day. I'm nosy as hell, and it's the ultimate job for busybodies.

Today my financial adviser looked me in the eye and said "why the hell did they give you a full ride?  What kind of drugs did you include with your application?"  I really could feel the love.  But then he told me he was proud of me and I went "squee!"

Lol, I feel that way sometimes too, especially when I get no love from other schools (that I paid $$$ for flight and hotel to go visit and still didn't get the stinking scholarship).  But I'm not mad.  ::)  But I do know that I'll be pissed if I fly to NYC a second time and still get no $ for my troubles...

Moni, I've been meaning to ask you- have you heard whether you've gotten the Sharp?

Denied  >:(  That was what I was referring to above!  Michigan's system is so much better.  At least if you don't get a scholarship then you're not at a net loss!


Oh no! I'm sorry, the bastards.  >:( Seriously, that does suck that you had to fly out for the interview, and still didn't get it  :(

Eh, its all good.  More and more I think I'm just not meant to go to Columbia.

Moni, have you shown them your other merit offers?  It worked for me, and if I got something, I'd be flabbergasted if you didn't.

I've been wearing my Virginia Law shirt around.  I picked better on the size than I did with the Michigan shirt.

Yeah, I'm sad they were out of smalls (I like t-shirts form-fitting, not unflattering) when I got there at Michigan, so I got a medium.  At Virginia I got a small, but I just never feel like wearing it.  I don't have the Virginia love.

My problem is that the Mich shirt is form-fitting, but WAY too long.  So it sits all tight on my booty, and it's not a good look.

Now, if it were 6 inches shorter, it would be cute.  If it were 6 inches shorter and had a wider neckline, it would be smoking.  If I actually go to Michigan, I'm forcing Gengis to make alterations!

Yeah, same here. I tell people I'm pretty much set on Michigan, and if they ask further tell them I still have an application out there to Harvard. But you're in a worse position since you getting into Columbia (which I think you will, we're pretty much numbers twins and you're older than me with a harder major) is more likely than me getting into Harvard.

I have begun wearing my Michigan t-shirt in public though, which I don't do with my Virginia t-shirt :) By the way, did you (or any other GW acceptees) ever get the GW t-shirt?


Yeah, we got our GW shirts at the Preview Weekend. They're pretty lame... they say "GW Law" in font that looks like the Budweiser font. I don't know why they didn't just stamp their law school logo on it... they have the best logo out of every school, IMO.

Anyhow, I just wanted to apologize to everyone for being intolerably snarky/insulting the last month or so. I've been very stressed out about the whole law school process, and I think I've been inappropriately venting my frustration here.

It's not something I even really noticed I was doing, until I went back and looked at everything again while attempting to delete out.

I have some difficulty detecting and understanding social subtext ALL the time, and this medium is particularly treacherous for folks like me.

Anyhow, I just wanted to apologize if I've been abrasive or insensitive. That's all.

How much lower is their offer than your asking price? If I recall you only just put it on the market. That plus the fact that it is the spring market says to me that you shouldn't take the first offer you see, that there should be better ones to choose from if you wait a bit. The main question is though, just how long can you afford to wait with school starting. Give it some time I'd say, you don't start school until the fall and the spring and summer are when everyone tends to buy homes.

i'm helping someone do a bunch of work on a new apartment -- re-wiring, electrical, moving, etc... may even do some demolition and try to build a little bit of a kitchen bar. i'm in way over my head and I love it, it'll be a fun weekend.

wow that's great. I hope you are billing them accordingly! :D

Yeah, we just put it on the market... it's still been less than a week!  So, actually, the reaction has been very good.  An offer after four days on the market ($20K under asking) and another couple coming for a second look and possibly an offer.  Plus there's another couple that gave us some positive feedback indicating that they might come back for a second look.

So that's great!

It's just that it's a stressful time regardless.  With such a huge financial issue looming.  And then to hear on the news the predictation that prices will drop during this buying season.

Anyway, we countered by coming down $5K, and then they countered by coming up $5K, and then we countered by saying we're staying where we are.  So... I think we should hear something today.  Their next move will be extremely telling.  They are trying for a May 16 settlement, which is pretty quick, so I'm hoping they're desperate.

Fixed... mostly. There was part of it missing, so he had to fill it in with cement. It now juts out slightly, but you can't tell unless you're inspecting it closely. Thanks for asking!

Cement.  Ick.

If it goes in your mouth, they should just give it a different name so it's not as gross sounding.  Like candy.  Yes, I had a hole in my teeth so they filled it with candy...

that would be really really stupid!

It doesn't have to be candy...they should just call it that.  Although that would be delicious.

i'm guessing candy already inside the tooth would be an amazing cavity waiting to happen.  but whatever floats your boat.

So, they came up another $5K.  So we're at $10K below asking.  We found this out at about 6 p.m. yesterday, so we really need to make up our minds today.  Not sure what we're going to do.  What we're realllllly hoping is that this other couple who came over for a second showing last night (and stayed a long time, including an animated conversation in our living room that we saw through the windows as we sat in our car) will put an offer on this morning.

Stand your ground.  Stand your ground.

(Easy for me to say, I know.  But it's early going.  If a couple falls in love with a house and wants to buy it, they aren't going to let $10,000 stand in the way of that.)

Actually, I think they are going to let $10K stand in the way of it.  Apparently, they didn't want to go above their original counter of $15K below our asking, so their real estate agent pitched in $2500 of his commission to get them to go up another $5K.  My real estate agent thinks this means their real estate agent is tired of showing them houses.  *But* they want to go look at more houses this weekend.

I know.  I am in such a bad mood because of this crap.  I feel like they can't really afford our house but are feeling arrogant because they feel it's a "buyer's market" and that they should be able to get it anyway.

And why the he** hasn't our real estate agent called me back this morning?

I have to go soon and judge a gymn meet all afternoon and evening today and then tomorrow for another 11 hours.  Not in the mood.  Little girls in leotards *not* cute today.  Everyone gets a 7.5.

Peeps in the microwave...great success.

Got my rejection from Penn today, thus concluding my cycle completely.  Got my finaid information, and I snagged my subsidized loans, so I'm all set on Michigan now...yay!  Deposit in, withdrawals in (Duke was the hardest one to send).  Now to find a place to live and a place to buy a lot of warm clothing.

Anybody have a recommendation for a warm winter coat?  The coldest place I've lived is Washington, DC, and I'm expecting a rude awakening :).

I'm a little sad that its all over...or at least at a loss for what to do.  My life has been structured around law school research and admissions for months now.  I feel like George Constanza when he stopped thinking about sex.

I don't even own a sweater. I think the coldest weather I have ever experienced here in Memphis was about 20 degrees. I am going to freeze next year.


In other news, the greatest thing ever happened yesterday. My grandmother called to critique my wedding registry, and I got my dad to call her back and convince her that since she didn't like anything on the registry to pay for cross-country movers for my move to Michigan.

ipso facto...congratulations!

Reading all the negatives about long distance relationships in other threads makes me sad.  My boyfriend and I have been living together and/or dating for 5+ years now.  We did long distance for 5 semesters in UG (Norman, OK, and Athens, GA).  It can be done! :)

We'll have the first semester apart for law school, since he's finishing up a couple extra degrees, but I think we'll be okay.  

I love North Face jackets, and I'm glad to hear they're utilitarian as well.  My guy is getting me a sending off present, and I think I just figured out what I want to ask for.  :)

The place I stayed was the Bell Tower Hotel. I think some people also stayed in the Michigan League - both of which are less than five minutes from the law school. However, I think any of the places we stayed at during ASW will be expensive since they're right in the middle of downtown - maybe look for something on the outskirts of town?

Hotels: My family stayed at the Comfort Inn near Briarwood Mall (3501 S State), and it was nice--not fancy like the Campus Inn, but it was clean and came with breakfast and there was a hot tub and swimming pool!.  Their room had a microwave and mini-fridge in it, which would be good if you didn't want to eat all your meals out. 

Winter clothes: the trick is to layer, especially if you'll be walking to school. Ideally, you want an inner wicking layer (silk long underwear is good), some insulation (fleece or wool are better than cotton), and some sort of wind-resistant outer layer.  You can always take stuff off and put it in your locker.  The coat is just one part of a winter outfit: make sure you have good socks, a hat (a lot of coats just come with an uninsulated hood and that will not keep you warm), long underwear, gloves or mittens (mittens will be warmer), etc.  I found my coat on LL Bean's clearance section, and it's served me well through 4 winters in Massachusetts, one in Michigan, and a January trip to Finland.  The filling's gotten a little compressed over the years, so I layer a fleece inside on really cold days. 

Note: no matter how good your winter wardrobe is, you will still probably be depressed by a Michigan winter. This one didn't have much snow, and only a few really bitter cold days, but it was (is?) incredibly long and gray.  Our first flurries were October 13th (first day of fall break) and there are more forecast tonight.  Of course, we've also had some amazing 70-degree days mixed in. And did I mention how fun and collegial we all are?

SA, it's definitely not antarctica.  it's not even as bad as the twin cities...i'd put it on par with chicago or boston.  you'll be fine.  The advice was more for those never-heard-of-LL-Bean types who will be shivering when temps drop below 55 or so (aka from October-April).  I saw so many people come to college in MA with no idea of how to dress for winter, and they were pretty miserable til they figured it out.

and for all you LL bean haters out there...yes there is some stuff on there that's hideous, but some of their winter coats look pretty much the same as North Face. 

Of course, take this with a grain of salt, as it's coming from someone who chose UM in part because it's totally acceptable to go to class in a hoodie and jeans, as opposed to friends at other T14s who feel like they have to get dressed up for school.

i got other clothes, you see, but for staples, you can't beat the place...  and i can dress fine in staples.  a button up shirt and pair of khaki's with a coat or something; it hardly matters where the khaki's are coming from

believe me, i'll be the first guy in line to be measured for my bespoke suits, but ... for everyday stuff...  i don't mind the simple



how's the move going?

When will everybody be going up?  I'm a fall starter, and I'm hoping to find something around July so I can settle in before school starts.  How are people doing their apartment shopping?

ipso facto...congratulations!

Reading all the negatives about long distance relationships in other threads makes me sad.  My boyfriend and I have been living together and/or dating for 5+ years now.  We did long distance for 5 semesters in UG (Norman, OK, and Athens, GA).  It can be done! :)

We'll have the first semester apart for law school, since he's finishing up a couple extra degrees, but I think we'll be okay.  

I love North Face jackets, and I'm glad to hear they're utilitarian as well.  My guy is getting me a sending off present, and I think I just figured out what I want to ask for.  :)

Hey... I'm a Bulldog, too!!!

flyaway: i'm so sorry you're having such a bad day, for you to be this mad, it must be REALLY bad.  maybe it's time for a drink (just not around charles' coworkers) 

i heart you...good luck, stay strong.

Thanks, Mons!!

Here is the update... things are looking better than they were this morning, though I won't breathe a sigh of relief at least until after the home inspection and ratified contract.  But... that second couple does want to put an offer down and is planning to do so tomorrow.  And they're going to do it at asking price, but asking for $5K in closing costs.  So our real estate agent went back to the agent for the first couple and told them that we are about to have this other contract written and that if they will raise their price another $5K (to $5K under asking), we will take it.

So... tomorrow will be interesting.  I don't care which couple gets it... I just want one of them to come through!

My husband (who is from Flint and went to U of M-- and the two of us lived in Chicago for a year) does not think U of M is as bad as Chicago.  He says the lakes warm the cold wind, so it's not as cold on the east side of Lake Michigan (Michigan side) as the west side (Illinois side).  Also, the wind in Chicago is KILLER, particularly because of the tall buildings.

I personally don't think I have an accent but the Canadian in me got pointed out multiple times over the course of the ASW. One of the professors at Michigan, John Pottow, is also Canadian and people snickered every time he pronounced schedule as 'shedule'.

I would have thought that Michigan, being so close to Ontario, would have a similar mode of speech but I guess not.

Really, I *swear* that I don't pronounce 'about' as 'aboot'. :-\

Hi Everybody!  Still at NYU, still undecided!  I really liked it, but the $ situation and the bf situation will be the determining factors between NYU, Columbia, at Michigan.  I'm happy to say that I could see myself at any of the three and will be happy with my choice.

As for winters jackets, Columbia also makes great 2 piece jackets and you can buy them at Burlington Coat Factory.  Mine lasted me through 2 Canada winters and a few ski trips.  Highly recommended!

Apologies if we've discussed this before (between 70 pages of this and 200 pages of MWLSD, and 50? pages of ASW2 discussion, I don't remember  :) ), but apparently Michigan is urging us not to get a computer with Vista yet:

http://www.law.umich.edu/currentstudents/informationtechnology/orientation.htm

They do allow Macs at Michigan for taking exams and such - just need boot camp and Windows XP Pro installed. There is some appeal in getting a Mac for me, but I think I'll end up getting a Thinkpad.

Has anyone looked into getting a computer through the school? How good do the deals look for those who have done comparison shopping?

Haha...between UGA's gym dogs (female) and Oklahoma's men's team, its quite the dominant duo.  I think OU lost its first meet since 2004 this year, or at least that's what I read in the paper.

I'm a bulldog, and my little brother is a Georgia cheerleader.  He cursed on TV during the Florida game last year, and has yet to live it down.  Glad to see so many southerners to keep me company.  Maybe we can all go out for fried okra one night. :)

I have a slight accent, it generally comes out when I'm trying to pronounce Portuguese LOL.

I've been looking at coats, and I know I'm going to look absurd walking around in a skiing jacket in November, but my goodness they look warm.  Actually, would I look absurd?  I have no idea about such things.  It was warm when I visited Ann Arbor.

Oh and as for the coat discussion, I love Northface coats.  I have a couple - one really bulky one with a hood (which is the best thing EVER when it's windy outside) and a lighter fitted one (both are down coats though).  They're amazing and I would be a frozen chunk of ice if I hadn't had them in Boston.  Also, warm scarves and gloves are a must, and nice warm boots (as much as everyone seems to hate them, my Uggs are wonderful - they do keep your feet warm!). 
See, at Michigan you would have had some ugg support...in the form of me.  Yes I know, they're SOO 3 years ago. Its not even that cold in Oklahoma, has that stopped me? :)

And this is the lighter jacket I have from Northface, and it's actually not that bad - as far as down jackets go, it's much slimmer than others (btw, mine is the brown one - silver isn't a good color for me :P)

Good god.  I just finished a Posner article espousing the benefits of a free market trade in newborns.  Yep, you heard me right, folks.  Posner wants to sell your babies.

Have fun in Chicago!


SB's gonna have to change her undies now - she gets off on that sorta thing.

WE SOLD OUR HOUSE!  :) :) :)

That second couple came through with a contract at asking price, without asking for any help on closing!!  They even had a small escalation clause, although it didn't get exercised, obviously, since the other couple is cheap. :)

I'm so psyched.  We'd be moving to Ann Arbor in late May.  We still have to get through the appraisal and home inspection, but things are looking very good.

This couple has been looking for four months, and this is the first house they've really loved!

I had a conversation this morning about doctor assisted suicide with my computer science major friend, and I really had no recourse when he started using greedy algorithms and dynamic programming to make a point :)

well, my mich finaid was more than i thought it would be  (thank goodness for being old) and when i did my budget for GW, it turned out that it was going to be nowhere near free b/c of the high COL.  since money was my only reason for going to GW, it just wasn't enough of a difference.  also, pretty much everyone i spoke to in the field said go to mich.  i am sad i'm not going to be living in DC, but there's plenty of time for that.  i'm really excited to go to UM.  luckily i had some objective help the last few days as i was going crazy, and i think after speaking with my dad (the accountant) he helped me realize that in the long run, the money wasn't enough to be a factor in my decision.  the cost of housing vs. tuition comparison really works on the socal mind.  made the tuition $$ seem very small.

well, my mich finaid was more than i thought it would be  (thank goodness for being old) and when i did my budget for GW, it turned out that it was going to be nowhere near free b/c of the high COL.  since money was my only reason for going to GW, it just wasn't enough of a difference.  also, pretty much everyone i spoke to in the field said go to mich.  i am sad i'm not going to be living in DC, but there's plenty of time for that.  i'm really excited to go to UM.  luckily i had some objective help the last few days as i was going crazy, and i think after speaking with my dad (the accountant) he helped me realize that in the long run, the money wasn't enough to be a factor in my decision.  the cost of housing vs. tuition comparison really works on the socal mind.  made the tuition $$ seem very small.

Congrats. The Michigan Mafia grows stronger still.

Congrats on making a decision monse!



btw- WLed @ Penn today; I shouldn't stay on, right???  I'e never been convinced that Penn is "better" than michigan in anything besides NY biglaw placement- which I assuredly do not want.

No, don't stay on. Not worth it.

I just got my offer upped from GULC, but it's not what I thought. It's $90k total (merit + need)... they adjust the merit to take care of subtractions from the need. Therefore, I figure this adds up to:

If 2L summer associate: $55k merit, $35k need
If 1L summer associate: $75k merit, $15k need

Either way, not enough to sway me from Michigan. Although the cost of sweaters from Mich will probably equal the extra CoL in DC... hmm...

So GULC's out fer sure, then?   poop. :(

I'm gonna mull it over tonight, but I think so. I was expecting $90k in merit plus extra in need when I spoke to Alison Spada yesterday. It's not that different from my Michigan offer, and when CoL is factored in (even with rooming), they're about equal. Meh.

Well, does that mean GW is out too?  I hear they're quite good when it comes to IP stuff.  And don't forget that DC is an awesome place to be.  ;D

Heh. No, GW is still in the running. I have to mail my seat deposit today, though, so I'll figure it out before the post office closes (at around 5:30p to be safe for postmark).

flyaway, super exciting news about the house!  We may end up overlapping for a week or so (I'll be in D.C. around the 19th-ish.)

monse, double gigantic YAY!!  I hope my somewhat incoherent assessment helped - I tried not to be too biased. ;)

EE, glad to hear you're that much closer to giving us your soul.  Didn't I help talk* you into applying here?  So do I get some of the credit when you finally decide on Michigan?

(* by "talk you in", I of course mean that I was just my charming, enthusiastic self and you found that so infectious that you just had to apply.  That's my story, I'm sticking with it!) 

Bouzie, can't believe you're even still debating this one.  You belong here with us, dammit!

Just received $40,000/yr from NYU.  I have to let them know by Thursday at 2!  Now I really don't know what to do, especially since it's unlikely that the bf will know about Mich dental before then.  Does anyone know what the consequences are (if any) for committing to a scholarship that requires you to drop all other schools then backing out???

Holy crap, congrats! I'm interested in the answer to your question, too...

Make sure and update us on the NYU/Michigan saga.  All this deadlining and SO considering sounds positively exhausting.  Thankfully the schools involved are all fantastic, though. 

I'll definitely keep you posted.  I just left a voicemail for the admissions person at nyu (i'm thinking that's not the best idea, but too late now).  I also said bf, not fiance (d'oh).  I guess at this point all I can do is wait and see...

Yeah but if you had any income tax withheld at all it is still worth it to file to get your withholdings back even if you aren't required to file.

Yeah, public policy is GULC's thing, but I don't think Mich is shabby, either. Plus, isn't their LRAP better? I'm too lazy to research that right now. Even if it isn't, Mich is giving you money and you don't know if GULC will.

Go to Mich.

They have a JD/LLM where you get both in 7 semesters.  You can apply from other schools, and spend 3L and extra semester at NYU as a visiting student, but that would require switching schools for my final year.

They have a JD/LLM where you get both in 7 semesters.  You can apply from other schools, and spend 3L and extra semester at NYU as a visiting student, but that would require switching schools for my final year.

Oh yeah! True dat. Do you want to teach or something?

Definitely not!  But I think I might be interested in tax.

But you don't need an LLM to practice tax law, do you? I won't get an LLM in IP.

You don't need it, but it definitely helps.  And NYU has one of the best.

Im obiously biased but..wouldnt there be a benefit to doing a JD at mich and an LLM at Nyu- namely, dramatically increasing your alumni network???

This is also true...  At this point its all up in the air.  After all, I might just hate tax!

I actually sort of know a woman (husband's boss's sister) with a Michigan JD and NYU Tax LLM.  She's a very successful New York attorney.

I kind of like the contracts switch myself. Torts and civ pro together sounded like overkill. Contracts will mix it up a bit I think. Though the idea of having to come in on fridays just for ONE CLASS pretty much sucks.

I dunno, maybe stacy's talk about CivPro being a good foundation really won me, but I was looking forward to having it to start. Ah well.

I'll prob hire a moving company.  I won't have a car until AA, so there's no way I'll be able to move  myself.

I'm an early bird, so it's not the 8am class time that bothers me, but having that one class on Fri morning is ridiculous. don't profs want summer fridays?? Ah well, i guess that means limited Thu night fun.

I'm probably going to turn down $90k at GULC for $54k at Michigan. You can't possibly justify going to GULC, especially if you want to teach. See  http://www.leiterrankings.com/jobs/2006job_teaching.shtml (http://www.leiterrankings.com/jobs/2006job_teaching.shtml) for proof. :)

Go to Mich.

On a slightly related note, I was WLed at CLS. So... UMich? Probably.

I thought for sure you'd get into CLS.  Good for us, though ;)

Fall starters should hear in May:

(by the way, I love how football tickets are included with class schedules, orientation, fin aid in the 'important dates to remember' section)

I'm not sure exactly how the seating works - apparently there's a law school section where we'll be in, but people can sign up in groups to get seats right next to each other? Something like that maybe.

ok, i really hate being on the west coast, cuz you guys all go to bed when i'm ready to chat...well if anyone's interested, my softball team won by 25 runs tonight, we rock!  i am officially putting out the call to join my softball team at michigan so we can beat the med students/engineers/literary nerds and show them what's up with the law students

also, i need to live wherever it is that gengis, gcoop, hm, and jolie live, so i can bother you guys when sarah's sick of me.

Yay! I suck at softball... I probably belong on the engineering team. Is there laser tag in Ann Arbor? :P

Just thought I would drop in and let everyone know I just got my final two waitlists today. My cycle has been much crappier than I imagined it would starting out but in the end it all works out because Michigan kicks ass!

Someone find me an apartment near all the cool peoples.

Heh, this makes me glad I'm going to live in the LC.

This cycle was a little crazy.  Seems to be a good number of us with 170+ LSAT scores going to michigan this year.  Is it just us on LSD?  Only 25% of the class had a 170 or better last year.

I wonder that, too.  Are Michigan's stats going to go up significantly?  I guess it's partly reflective of people who took the LSAT more than once.

I doubt it will go up. The LSAT average for the people accepted on LSN is a 171.5, and so far the average for attendings (18 total) is a 168.9, pretty much the same as last year. That's probably a big enough sample size to say that it will stay around that. It's too bad, because one thing holding Michigan back in the rankings is the "student quality" factor. They probably have a more diverse student body in exchange, though, so that's a good thing.

I want to live in the Gengis/Jolie/GCoop/Hollowman neighborhood too!!! GCoop, get on that, if you find us a place you get a finder's fee of free shots and jukebox money all night at Leo's the first weekend we move in.

Well, I hate to pee in your cornflakes, but we're not really in the same neighborhood.  Gengis is south of the South Campus student ghetto.  Sounds like GCoop and Hollowman are on the eastern edge of the Old West Side.  I'm further in on the Old West Side in the Eberwhite neighborhood.  We'll try to strategically place you smack in the middle of everyone (which would probably place you in the stadium, actually.) 

I'll say again, there's a 2-bed for rent on Madison and S. Ashley (aka really close to G. and H. and pretty close to me) that looks pretty cute. 

Any more details about it? How much? How far is that from the school? From other stuff (grocery, Target, etc.)?

Eek. I don't know that it's online anywhere, I've just seen the sign in the window.  I'll get the phone number and let you guys duke it out. :D

It's maybe 3-4 miles from Target, 1/2 block off of Main Street, maybe 1/2 mile or less to the law school (although straight up a hill - hello, calves!)

I love living on the OWS, personally.  And Ann Arbor is a typical small city - you can't really head too far in any direction without hitting a grocery store and other shops various and sundry.  If you're going to have a car, you'd be hard pressed to find a place "too far" from anything.

I probably will not. I have to sell mine before I leave. Might have to buy a cheap one before I come or when I get there from the sound of it, though...

Also, can you get a temporary membership?  If I go to Michigan, the bf and I will be visiting at the end of May to find housing.  We're both to young to rent a car without serious penalties (anyone know a company that'll rent to a 24yo without charging a fortune???), so I was thinking ZipCar.

Post by: pikey on April 17, 2007, 07:35:47 AM
Well, like I said, I'm pretty sure I can refer people with no fee for the first year/no startup fee, so that would be the equivalant of a temporary membership.

Ok, thanks!  I definitely plan on joining ZipCar, but I thought that there was a monthly fee, so I didn't want to join in May.  I'll PM you a little closer to the time.

<-- Excited!

Beat up is probably the wrong word. Old, and sparse. No power steering, windows, locks. One dent in the right front wheel area, but thats it. We only paid $750 for it and will probably damn near give it away one way or another.

Yeah, if I refer you, the annual fee is waived, so it's just a $25 initiation fee.  So it's "free" for one year.

Then it's just a per hour or per day charge when you want it, but no other fixed fees whatsoever.

For those that don't know how it works, you get a smartcard unique to you.  You login or call and say you want a car and can pick one out that's available for the hours/days you want it (generally hours).  Then you just walk over to the car, waive the smartcard in front of it, and it unlocks and its yours to drive away for however long you rented it for.  It includes ALL gas, insurance, and costs...  there are no extra costs, and it's anywhere from $6 - $10 an hour depending on what kind of car you get.  If you rent for the day, it's like $60 a day, but that includes all gas and 150 miles of driving in any day.  It's a better deal for the around town stuff than it is for the long trips, but it works well in any case.

There is NO monthly fee of any kind, just a one time $25 fee, and a $50 annual fee, but the first year's annual fee I can get removed if I refer you.

Sweet. I'll probably hit you up for that referral when I'm ready to sign up.

Jolie told me once that there was a lot where it was like $4 to park each day somewhere near the school.  And I've talked to a number of people who pay $75 a month for a spot near school.  And I know that there are ALWAYS meters available for parking, but they are $1 per hour, and many have 2 hour limits.

 :o My yearly parking fee at UNLV is $95, and I thought that was steep because they keep raising it.

That's for a private owned spot, EE.  I think you can get $50 a year parking or whatever at Michigan, but it's at a lot way down on State Street that you'd have to park at and bus to.  Kidna defeats the purpose.

Oh, OK. Well, how often does the bus run? It might not be too bad. We have shuttle service because a lot of parking is so damn far from the buildings.

I often drive my sister's car, which doesn't have power steering.  It's not really a problem for regular (90 degree) turns, but a 3 pointer or U turn requires a little more work than I'm used to!  I'm 5'4.5", for reference.

The Poster... we aren't living the next town over, but we'll be about three miles away, or a little less.  Most days, I'll get dropped off/picked up, but I figure if I have a day (like Fridays) when I only have to be at school for 1-3 hours, I'll probably drive in and park at the garage we parked at for the ASW.  Part of it has non-permit parking at 40 cents per half hour.

I probably will not. I have to sell mine before I leave. Might have to buy a cheap one before I come or when I get there from the sound of it, though...

I'll sell you an old beat up Civic on the cheap if you can drive a stick :D We got two cars, only need one in A2.

I can and I do. How beat up?

Beat up is probably the wrong word. Old, and sparse. No power steering, windows, locks. One dent in the right front wheel area, but thats it. We only paid $750 for it and will probably damn near give it away one way or another.

The no power steering thing scares me. But if you give it away, hell, I'll take it! ;)

Ha. My 5'3" fiance drives it with no power steering you wuss.

Is 5'3" how big her biceps are? ...I just never drove a car w/out power steering. I'm sure it's not bad. How many miles on it?

80,000 or there abouts. Not bad for a 95.

Not bad at all... so, when you say practically give it away, how practically are we talking? :)

Eek. I don't know that it's online anywhere, I've just seen the sign in the window.  I'll get the phone number and let you guys duke it out. :D

My 91 cadillac seville has 55,000 miles on it... and it's white with red interior

This is awesome for a number of reasons.
