Brooklyn Law School housing

Brooklyn Law School housing
« on: April 07, 2004, 11:05:02 AM »
I mailed my deposit for BLS today.  Thank to everyone for all the advice.  Anyone ever seen the inside of one of the school's apartments?  I'm on a merit scholorship and I'm from Atlanta so I'm thinking my chances of landing one of them for me and my wife are pretty good.  Hopefully.  It sure would make moving a hell of a lot easier than going through the brokers and classifieds and dealing with landlords.

I saw them before they were campus housing. If they're the brownstones I think - they're nice, real nice. They probably changed the insides though since when I last saw that specific area where housing is awhile back (I have relatives who lived very close to there). I remembered the street when I saw it on the housing form, but I can't remember it for the life of me now.

They're expensive as hell though, like a grand a month if I remember from their housing forms. It's a very costly area to live, so it'll probably save you a ton of hassle though. The price is fair, but far from a discount.

If you don't know the Brooklyn Heights area, and can't go apartment hunting in person, it's probably not a bad idea to get housing through the school. It's in a great area, though. Sorry I can't be of help on the interior though. Best of luck!

Oh, btw some law schools have off-campus apartment listings for students (that aren't through the school). You might want to request that too from admissions or residence life. If I hadn't registered for housing through the school at SJU, I would have requested that. I sent in my housing deposit today.

I've seen a few of Brooklyn's apartments and they're pretty nice.  Some of them are brownstones and some are elevator buildings (12 stories or so without a doorman).  BTW, a grand a month isn't expensive for that area and you're saving a bundle because you woulnd't have to pay first and last's month rent and a finder's fee.  It's very competitive though and slots are based on the merit scholarship you've received and how far you live from NYC.

Thanks.  I'm hoping I'll get one of those competitive slots as I am on a partial merit scholarship and I live in Atlanta.
