General Off-Topic Board / Re: Why are Korean girls so hot but cliquey?
« on: April 06, 2007, 01:09:03 AM »
koreans are definitely cliquey. i think part of it is because of korean history and how china and japan were always there being big and powerful, so koreans really had to stick together to "survive" and keep their identity.....so because of korea's underdog status, koreans like to stick together :) and koreans are also prideful, so being prideful and sticking together makes for some clique-iness.

thats my perspective on it, anyhow.
:P

but ive definitely heard other people talking about how koreans are this way. it's like infamous. haha

 :(

yes, i can attest as well, because I also went to community  college and my grades were definitely factored into my LSDAS gpa.

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.

Where should I go next fall? / Re: Michigan 1L Taking Questions

yeah, my mom said she had chest pains when she heard my budget as a summer starter--and she isn't paying for any part of it!  it's overwhelming.  but at the end of it, you're halfway done, and i decided to think of it as "locking in a lower rate"--you're getting 3 semesters at the 2007-8 rate and saving yourself one at the 2009-10 rate, which will probably be a lot higher. At least I tell myself that to feel better. 

yeah i was totally thinking that too--about how u are basically half done once the year is over....so that's kind of cool but at the same time very surreal to think about.

the poster:
i dont think ure really behind the times....the other summer starters i met at the alumni reception had not found any apartments yet either....
i think  the admissions office has some kind of list of sublets or something if ure looking just for a sublet.......

I had an outside scholarship (sadly just for this year) for part of it, and citibank for the rest (they gave me the best deal & I didn't need a cosigner).

I didn't need the whole budget: things that helped included finding a cheap housing situation that didn't require lots of furniture-buying, working a few hours a week, luckily still being covered by my parents' health insurance, and living a relatively unencumbered life (no kids, pets, or car to keep up). obviously, your situation may differ. they will raise your budget as needed for health insurance, child care, or buying a new computer.



Thanks, nice to hear some first-hand info! The first year budget for summer starters is a bit hard to swallow (even with a fairly decent need-based grant), so I now find myself trying to learn all I can to keep the cost as low as possible.

ME TOO.
the summer starter budget IS pretty crazy. ive never really had any experience with such numbers so it's all a bit surreal but im trying to force myself to keep bringing it down to reality and understanding that it IS my situation.
i was hoping also i wouldnt have to loan out the entire rest of the budget...so we will see.
