I was looking for a place to buy a couple of office type chairs and a desk.Thanks!A lot of the ones I've seen are kind of upscale, with fancy showrooms and all. Coral Gables is a pretty ritzy community. I looked in the phone book and there is a place called Office Furniture Warehouse located downtown (305-266-4447), but I don't know what they have. About 10 minutes south of campus on US-1 is a place called Dadeland Station, and there is a Best Buy, Target, a furniture store (Thomasville I think), a Sports Authority, and a Michael's. Pretty much everyone I know has either bought cheap furniture at Target, or has bought used stuff from all the ads people have around campus. In the UC there is a big bulletin board and there are always tons of people selling old furniture, so that would be a good place to check when you get down here.

Hello from Miami!! I am finally here, and my apartment is awesome!! It is so hot here its gross and I bet August will be even hotter!I am trying to learn my way around, moving across the country and to a new state is so confusing, but I've been here three days and have driven in all directions so I think i'm getting the hang of it...Its just hard to find things like Costco, Target, etc... I am living pretty much in the middle of everything and every person I ask tells me to go to a different location, so its all about finding the closest things to me and the best possible way to go about getting there.I did the drive to school down US-1 , its a little trafficy but it didnt take me more than 15 minutes. I drove all through Kendall its nice but very congested with traffic. I wonder if there is any back ways to get to school from where I am (near 395) instead of shooting all the way down US-1. Well, i gotta go I'm leaving tomorrow to go on a cruise to the bahamas for the weekend, I hope the hurricanes and tropical storms dont eat my cruise ship.
OH NO!! Goingtomiami! Don't leave us! This is definately a question for UM. I know my first payment is due Aug. 1st. The school can be very flexible. For example, I'm on a payment plan. Maybe they can defer your first payment for a month or so. You just have to ask!
