Incoming 1Ls / Re: University of Michigan Housing Thread!

Reach, just PMed you but for anyone else who's wondering, the kitchen there was by far the biggest, with the most counter space and cabinetry of the places I saw.  Also, a full sized stove and fridge which was not the case at most other places I checked out.

Looked at several places a week ago and ended up signing a least at Hoover Post for 690/mo.  It includes everything but electricity (including internet).  It was a garden level, so it's obviously going to be cheaper than an upper-level unit, but it was still the most reasonable place that we found...also the cleanest looking and with the best kitchen, bathroom, and closet situation.  Try to bargain with them, because they have a lot of units left...also, I was able to negotiate move in and move out dates.

The only downside is that it's right on top of the in, across the street.  I just keep telling myself that it's only 7 days a year.

Summer starter, so the lease starts just after undergrad graduation.  Good luck to everyone.

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 first i was too lazy and was going to do LC, but then i thought about it....and i DO value privacy very 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.

I'm coming from MSU to UMich and just signed my lease for a place.  If you want to PM me the area that you looked in (cross streets or whatever) I can let you know if I checked it out and give you the lowdown.

My main Northwood concern would be the lease period, which runs through June 30.  I'd be worried that I would just have to eat the rent for those two months in the summer since I'd be surprised if I were able to sublease for just that period.  If it weren't for that, I would definitely consider it.  Maybe someone can put my mind at ease and say it's not really going to be a problem  :)

UMich is my first non-reach choice... although it probably falls closer to the reach category than I would like.  Beyond that it's a toss up between William and Mary, Boston College, Notre Dame, Illinois, and Minn.

Try looking under "The" or "College" as in "The College of William and Mary."  I always forget about this and get confused when I try to track it down in alpha-lists.

I have a question for all of the folks who have received waivers from Michigan.  Are any of you currently Michigan undergraduate students?  I am just curious on how likely it is for a law school to offer waivers to current UG students of the same school.  As the purpose of most waivers is to get people to apply that might not otherwise apply, isn't it a safe assumption that current UG students from any given school would not be high on the list to receive waivers?  Wouldn't it be a safe assumption on their part that current UG's will likely apply to the law school?  Maybe this is just my way of justifying my hurt feelings for not receiving a Michigan waiver.  Any thoughts or comments?

Someone just a page or two back was talking about their waiver and how they are a Michigan undergrad.  Sorry.

Before I add Campbell Law School, can someone say if it was snail mail or email?  Thanks.

EDIT:  It was MysticMI on page 10 who is the undergrad at Michigan that got the waiver.  Wow julie, that was fast :P

I think that maybe strivergirl got one and was a Umich undergrad, but I'm down the road at Michigan State.  Good question.

Got the UMich waiver in the mail today.  They would "love to keep me in Michigan for 3 more years (I go to MSU).
What about you, would you love to stay in Michigan? 

I would love to stay in Michigan... but I don't know if that's going to happen.  My boyfriend and I are a package deal, and he had an LSAT tragedy in June (162 after practicing consistently in the mid 170s).  He's retaking and I might for the 30th, and if he gets into the 170s he's an autoadmit almost everywhere (3.93 GPA).

Until I got the waiver I was thinking ND and UIUC, because I want to stay in the Midwest, but unfortunately I'm just going to have to get all of my app stuff together until October 20, when we finally decide everywhere we're applying.  It's nice to have someone to lean on, but I think we're making each other a little nuts about the whole thing.
