I will be heading to B'ham later this week to look for an apartment I can't believe it's almost June already ... David, congrats on choosing Samford!!
I'd probably go with the 2 bedroom at Wildwood. It's a better deal. The Oaks is definitely closer, but WC is still pretty close. I'm getting a 2 bedroom at Woodmere for 730, planning to use the extra bedroom as a study. It's off Columbiana, so it's probably halfway between WC and the Oaks. It was between there or the Oaks, and the people at Woodmere would actually call me back (unlike at the Oaks), so I picked them.Glad you enjoyed your trip! I was really impressed with the campus too, it's very nice! I was told they are getting wi fi in the library, but they hadn't decided whether to add it in the classrooms or not.
Thanks so much for your comments! That's definitely nice to hear good things about Samford!So sad about that girl from Birmingham who is missing in Aruba isn't it? I hope they find her alive and well.Glad you made your final decision David; personally, I think having a separate room for my study will be great for me, because I can get distracted by other things... So if I have the mentality that when I go in that room, I'm working, hopefully I'll get a lot done.When I was on campus in April I was told they are getting wi fi, but I didn't ask when. So maybe it'll be all set up by the time we arrive, who knows though.
My husband lives in a little apartment complex in Mountain Brook and we love it. They are renovated from the 1930's, but quite cute and quaint.
David, it sounds like you have the same guitar collection problem that I have. I have five and a bass right now and really want to get a 57' Les Paul re-issue Gold Top, that might have to wait for a bit though. We need to make sure that we don't live in the same apt. complex or we will blow off studying and jam instead.
