I got a handwritten note from Sarah Z back in the day as well -- she said she loved my school! But yes the students were the biggest selling point of the school for me as well.

It's funny, the LSD group here is a pretty tight little group. We "met" here but actually like each other, hang out, and get along in real life too. It's all for real, not just some ploy to show everyone how fun and cool Michigan is (although that's true too).

That's so not true smiley and I are sworn enemies!  ;D *Waves at Smiley*

I deferred last year, so I will be starting Mich in the summer, and I know that Law Quad housing is unavailable during the summer months.  Can I find temporary housing for the summer and then move into the Law Quad once the Fall term begins? Also, how did previous summers find roommates? No joke, I get antsy thinking about how I'm going to be all alone next summer -- sheesh

Summer starters can usually get a sweet sublet deal from other law students who are going away for their summer jobs and need to rent out their places. Because of oversupply they have to discount their rent to entice people to take the apartments. There is a law school classified listing to find places. And yes a number of the summer starters moved into the Lawyer's Club.

Jolie (or VU) know about how the blk students feel about Mich? Like it/hate it, close knit community etc?

*Waves to Jolie!*

All of my fellow black students are really, really cool and down to earth. There may not be that many of us, but we do all look out for each other. One of the profs held a little dinner for us to see how we're doing and we had brunch together the other week. We're all from different backgrounds, the black students in my class are from Michigan, Texas, California, Jersey, Atlanta and New York.

Ann Arbor is Ann Arbor, one day it will stop raining but I'm not sure when, it definitely reminds me of Ithaca but bigger. It's a lovely city but it's not New York, thankfully all the people I've met here have been really cool. Like Vapid and Jolie for example!

I got my MAP notification as well. The only thing they mentioned was the dinner and registration. Weird!

Yeah call them. I did get an email saying I was approved for the loan and if I had any questions to call their office. I then got the email to sign the MPN. It looks like they just forgot to send you the approval email. Go call them, they're very helpful.

My school is a direct lender, so I had to do the credit authorization before I got the MPN and they told me I was approved.

Have you heard any Rufus Wainwright Jay? If not, I'd suggest you listen to his best album which is Want One. He's sort of an alternafolkierock kind of guy. One of his favorite songs of mine is "I don't know what it is."

J is going to Northwestern next fall.  He got that "we'll give you $$$ if you defer a year" deal.

Yup, same deal I got. They love giving out that deal, must bring up their yield numbers. Good for him.

Never even got a WL letter from NYU.  I got nothing whatsoever.  At least Penn had sent me a letter saying they were still evaluating and would get back to me by early April.  Of course I still hadn't heard from them in May, so I said whatever.

I got the NYU letter like April 28. It was ridiculously late, I had already sent off my deposit and haggled over my fin. aid money.
