I was looking through that list of apartments that you posted and they really arent all that expensive.  If they include utilities a single bedroom apartment could actually be afordable.  It is definately something I'm going to look into now.  Not having to go nuts trying to find people to live with would def save me a huge headache.

Just so you know MmTino2 = Michael on the myspace page.  I don't know if I said that or not.

In regards to prospects I honestly have none.  Originally I just figured I'd live on campus my first year, but from what I understand I would be living with college students and or graduate students.  I dont really know if I want to be in a dorm with a college student because I know how much work I do now and I dont think its going to be enough.  A friend of mine also went to Duq as an undergrad and he told me to stay away from the campus housing.  He said being its a catholic school they are a little tough on living sitatuions and being off campus myself for the past 2 years I've grown to enjoy my freedom.  I think its pretty hard to try to find a place off campus if you don't know who you're living with.  I mean there are some places out there, Duq actually has a site for listed apartments and homes.  Most of them are for more than one person though.

The Link is: http://www.commuteraffairs.duq.edu/pdf/OffCampusList.pdf
Hope it helps if you don't already know about it.

My friend who went there undergrad recomended mount washington.  I dont really know much about the area, but I do plan to visit eventually.  I def want to live close to other law students too.  I mean after we all bust our asses jumping through whatever hoops they conjure up for us, having a couple drinks with those people will def be a good time.

Haha.  Funny that you mention NESL.  That was the only other school I got into.  I made the obvious choice of Duq over it even though they gave me some nice phone calls.  I will say though that the first thing the Duq admissions officer said to me on the phone was...are you a Steelers fan.  Apparently Jets fans arent the thing to be in Pittsburgh, but I think if that my main worry Im in good shape.  But yeah for some reason I'm still holding out on Buffalo.  To be honest I dont know exactly why.  I'm almost certain I'll be at Duq though.  Im curious was to where everyone is living next year or if you guys are living on campus?

Hey, Im 90% sure I'm going to Duquesne in the fall.  Honestly I've only heard the best things about the city.  Everyone I talk to seems to really love it.  I haven't been there myself, but it seems like its a pretty nice place to live.  I know everyone loves the bar scene there, or at least the people I talk to all say its great.  I dont know how much of that we will have time to enjoy, but at least its there.  I dont have myspace, only facebook, but maybe I should attempt to set that up.  Some of the earlier posts really go into depth about the places to live.  The cost of places is really cheap to.  To be honest, the reason I'm going is because it was one of the two schools I got accepted to.  The other school in Boston I was just not really a fan of after reading some of the reviews by students, so this seemed the logical choice.

See you in the Fall hopefully,

Mike

Duquesne U / Looking For Somewhere to Live
« on: April 11, 2006, 02:06:31 PM »
Hey,

I just thought I'd post here just to see if anyone is looking for a place as well, has a place to rent, or is looking for another person to live with.  Ill be a 1L at Duquesne this fall (coming straight out of college) and live in New Jersey, so its really hard to get out there.  I at first thought I'd just live on campus, but after this email:

Michael,

Law Students can reside in any of our upper-class residence halls.  These
would be Towers and Vickroy.  Vickroy is full at this time, however.  You
can be added to a waiting list for Vickroy.  The other option is Brottier
Hall, which is the University owned apartment building.  This building is
also full at this time but you can contact them about getting on the waiting
list for that building as well.

So yeah...not much going on there.  I would honestly prefer to live off campus.  I have been off campus for the last 2 years I was in college anyway.  So, if you are looking for a place as well or if you have an extra room drop me an email.  Malatin2@tcnj.edu

Also if anyone has some recomendations on where to look that would also help me out a ton.

Anyway, hope everyone isn't worrying to much about next year...I know I am!

Michael

I'm pretty sure I will be going to Duquesne this fall.  The rest of the law schools I applied to seem to have decided to wait to send me my wonderful little rejection letters.  But I am also going to live on campus.  Coming from New Jersey, I know nothing about the Pittsburgh area and don't think I will be able to put the time in to finding a decent apartment and the status of my car is also up in the air as my lease expires in December.

I noticed that Duq doesnt offer graduate on campus housing strictly for law students and seeing as only 8 - 10 do live on campus I understand why.  But, I live in a house now as an undergrad with a couple graduate students and I swear they have a lot less work and party a hell of a lot harder than I do.  Was this a problem for you, as I'm sure law school is much more demanding on time than other graduate degrees?
