I am not as anxious to start school and studying but i am really excited to move to miami! I am leaving in a month and I cant wait to get settled into my new apartment and meet all the new people and learn my way around. I've never lived outside of michigan or away from my family, so its really new and exciting for me.

Guys, after my recent trip to Miami yeilded no results with regards to living situations I took a trip to my other acceptance: Baylor.  Although I never saw myself going there it seems to make more sense as it will allow me to recieve an education closer to where I would like to practice.

I loved the campus at Miami and most of the city.  I wish all of you guys the best of luck with finding a place to live and the next 3 years of your life and beyond.  I will likely still follow this thread so let me know if you guys had any more questions about housing or anything.  I still have many pics of apartments I looked at if you are looking for one that is more representative than the ones you will find online.

I hope thats not the only reason you chose not to go to miami...I understand your situation and I wish you luck, but to everyone else don't be discouraged! There are tons of places to live and you will find something!

Linzy, where is your boyfriend a 1L?

At UM. and NO he is not the reason I chose to go to this school...though being with him is definately a perk!

Everytime I go out in Miami for dinner I always want to wear a skirt and tank top but the restaurants crank up the AC and I freeze. I wonder how cold the classrooms will be. Better cold then hot though, I cant think straight if i'm shfitzing (sweating).

my boyfriend is a 1L and he wears his board shorts and a tshirt to class. he said some people really dress up but most people are just casual. I think i'll start off the year trying to look cute, but by midsemester i'll show up to class in sweat pants. Cute ones of course.

Ok - remember that apartment guide I told ya'll I picked up from CVS? Here are some names of properties, prices, and phone numbers. Remember to call ASAP to find out what is still available, and these prices may be lower/higher then what is listed. Remember to mapquest them because I do not know how close they are all to campus.

Also, Linzy and others: good luck getting concessions from anywhere in Brickell.  And anything cheap there is for a very good reason.  That land is way too expensive for anybody to rent units out there for anything reasonable.

 What does that mean? I know the area in Brickell well. My building is one of the nicest ones. Dont get angry and start putting down other people just because you havent found anything. You are looking late, and it makes sense the nicest and cheapest ones rent first. And by the way Casino asked about the $900 ones, Most are studios. And the reason why these apartments are not so outrageous is because I think they are rent controlled, and they dont raise the rent each year. But the building was completed in 2002 so it's still very new, i don't know.
