U of Toledo / Re: Any thoughts on Toledo?

The paper is being a bit intellectually dishonest.  Everyone who knows anything about the US News rankings knows that the differences between #94 and most of the Tier 3 (and much of the Tier 4, for that matter) is negligible.  One little move in any part of the US News equation, and a school can easily drop 20 - 30 spots.  It happens every year.

I'll be honest, I have no idea how Toledo managed to get into the second tier last year, given the competition from all the other Ohio schools and the fact that it is in Toledo.  The Dean must have been doing something right, that's all I have to say.

That said, I do think there is something going on at Toledo.  I received an e-mail from the financial aid office, and I was told that the person in charge of Financial Aid "retired."  Yeah, right, this person "retired" smack dab in the middle of the upswing part of the cycle and the school had no replacement.  That never did sound right to me.

As I figured, this is not a voluntary reduction in responsibilities.

General Board / Re: I'm looking for housing in Cincinnati

I don't have a car. I'm not sure how public transportation is in Cincinnati. When I mean near the law school I'm talking 5-10 mins. tops walking distance. How is the neighborhood around campus would you say it's worth it or should I just settle for the overpriced graduate housing?

I would say that you don't want to walk around the neighborhood in Cincy.  Public transportation in Cincy exists, but I wouldn't say it's the greatest.  If you get a car, then there are a lot of cool apartments in Cincy.  If not, then I'd settle for the overpriced graduate housing.

I'm looking for housing in Cincinnati, preferably near the law school(University of Cincinnati). Does anyone here know of a decent place to reside in besides the University's graduate housing? I will be moving in during the first week of August. I don't want to live in a house I would rather live in an apartment building and I'm willing to pay 450-650 per month.
Thanks.

I lived in Cincy/NoKy for a few years.  When you say "near the law school," what do you mean exactly?  Walking distance?  Or, a ten-minute drive?  Or, a twenty-minute drive?

They almost always fluff up the demotion to make it sound like it was planned, or expected, or desired by all the involved parties.

Or, it could be that he just really wants to teach.

I live in a place that is pretty plain, but I like it because the rent is cheap. $395 per month. But you have to pay for electricity and gas. Also it is about 3 minutes away from campus. My friend lives about 10 minutes away in a much nicer (has washer and dryer in each apartment instead of just each apartment building) But I cannot remember the name of it.  There are also some nice apartments about 20 minutes away.
As for grades, it took almost a month, but I did fine.
We just had our dean demoted to professor, but it is supposedly not performance based. Just that they could not agree on a contract, so his deanship was not renewed.
Good Luck to those coming to Toledo this fall.

I don't know if the academic world is different from the corporate world, but that sounds like a demotion and not a contract dispute.

Hey all,
I have secured an apartment at the Canal Square Apartments (www.canalsquareapartments.com). They are located DIRECTLY across the street from school. I mean, a football's throw!

For more info about these apartments specifically, email me or check out the website.

As for the others, the Law School has an excel spreadsheet of about 50 apartment complexes in the area - including price range, proximity to campus, etc. I'd check there for more options.

Hope this helps a little.

Thanks a lot for that.  Their prices seem a bit steep.  Are you sharing with a roommate?

I'll be joining in the 1L FUN at IU-Indy in the Fall. I actually have already rented an apartment, as well. Anyone needing info regarding the rediculous amount of apartment complexs available to students...please ask. I had great success... only after three days of hunting.

Look forward to seeing you.

I definitely need help with apartment searching.  Please, let me know areas that are good for students.

Thank you!!

If I choose Toledo, I'll be coming from Columbus.

Any evening PTers out there?
