Alright, so I sent back those forms they sent us about GradPlus last week... haven't heard anything yet. Anyone have any news on this?

I assume that the FinAid office gets the ball rolling on the process once you turn the forms in?

i called the office yesterday to confirm that they had processed my application that I submitted a few weeks ago, and they said that they did and my application was approved. They're just waiting for further information/instruction from the federal government about loan processing (maybe bc they're the direct lender), so right now we just have to sit tight and wait.

Great. Thanks for the reply.

By the way, Sister Jack was my unofficial Spring 2005 jam and I'm still a bit sad that I'm not going to see Spoon next weekend at the Pitchfork Fest in Chicago (Yo La Tengo too! Agh!). Oh well.

I know this is probably against the rules, but does anyone have the LOG/PASSWORD for the Admitted Students site? I lost that postcard thing during moving.

Thanks.

In general, the home football schedule blows this year.

And what in the world is Ball St. doing in the middle of our conference games?

Ann Arbor is serviced by AATA (Ann Arbor Transportation Authority; city buses) and University of Michigan buses. If you're 4 miles off campus, you'll rely on AATA busing almost exclusively. AATA buses come every half hour on most routes, and every 15 minutes on more popular routes. How convenient the AATA buses are may depend on where you live exactly. Check out the routes on the website: www.theride.org

I lived far off campus the last two years but was right next to a bus stop so it took me 5-10 minutes to get to school. It was kinda annoying that my bus only came every half hour, but you get it used to it I guess. Plus all buses (city and university) are free if you show your MCard.

The buses are usually 100% reliable, perhaps a few minutes late here or there, never anything terrible. My morning commute was sometimes really crowded, but it was only a matter of a few mintues. The buses are really clean and generally devoid of any really sketchy characters. They don't run past like 10PM, even on weekends (I believe) but after 5PM you can park your car in most university lots for free. I'd say a 4 mile ride would take 10-20 minutes, depending on exactly where the route was and what time of day... traffic in AA can be kinda bad.

Hope this helps, PM me if any more questions.

You might want to consider TCF if you're moving to AA permanently as TCF is the partner bank of the university. There are only TCF ATM's in UMich buildings and there are a lot of them. It's really, really convenient having about 2-3 bank branches and 10+ ATM's within walking distance of wherever you might be on campus, especially when class is killing you... always better to avoid driving around AA for a menial task like banking as well.

TCF may be a local Michigan bank (I'm not sure) and they kinda suck for some things (don't ever use their card at another bank's ATM... they charge a "Hey, you didn't use our ATM machine" service fee on top of the other bank's service fee) but for everyday living in AA it's a great convenience. I have a debit account there (solely for AA use) and another one at a different bank when I'm at my non-AA home.

Yeah, I'm nervous.

Let's face donut facts: Krispy Kreme > DD > THo.

Every now and then, though, you need a cake donut, not a raised one. DD's cake donuts >> KK's cake donuts. Srsly. Try the double choco from DD, it's superb.

Although the old fashioned glazed (also a cake donut) from Timmy Ho's is great too.

DD has always been in Detroit, but right now, they're building DD's everywhere. They just can't build them fast enough. So perhaps it's just a matter of time that they show up in Ann Arbor... but if they do, it'll probably be on Stadium/Washtenaw (about a mile or so off campus) because downtown/campus Ann Arbor tends to lack a large presence of chain/fast food type establishments.

And yeah, DD >>>> Tim Horton's. Although Tim's sandwiches/soups are great.

Ann Arbor, meh.

I've gotta get down there soon, haven't been since graduation.
