I'll be there on the 8th. I would not suggest LLSams. Everyone I've ever known that has lived there has regretted it. It's super loud, ridiculous electricity bills, and very dusty. I hate to say that too, because I really love the look of them and the idea that they saved that wonderful building and its history! I went to Baylor undergrad so I'm pretty familiar w/ housing and can pass on what little knowledge I have at the mixer.
Excellent - looking forward to chatting with you on the 8th! Sad about the lofts but I kinda have gotten that feeling from some friends who also went to Baylor as undergrads - they are just so damn pretty though! Oh well, not living there will save tons of cash. Where are you looking into living?
I've signed a lease for a duplex at 15th and daughtrey. I originally wasn't planning on living in the "undergrad neighborhood" area, but I really love it and it's kind of on the edge so I don't think it will be a problem. There may be one unit open still. I'm not sure. There's pictures on www.campusrealtors.com
under specials. It's the little green duplex w/ tile floors. The rent's not $1000 anymore though, it's $900. The front is plain, but flowers can fix that. I like having a yard and tile floors! My roommate and I looked at some farther away places like pecan ridge and the nice new place out in hewitt. We liked them, but we were both at Baylor undergrad and couldn't get used to the idea of living on the other side of Waco from school.
