I need to figure out the housing situation in Ann Arbor.  I know there are "housing ambassadors," but what is their actual function?

From the blue sheet? I think they just answer questions. I don't know, I think you're just supposed to find someone with similar circumstances and ask them questions.

Yeah, I dunno...I think I'd feel awkward in asking people random questions about Michigan housing.  Also, I'd just want to email one of them and ask her about her Olympic experience ;D

Best advice I can give is to inspect housing close to campus very carefully.  It's sort of touch and go -- some very well maintained older buildings that cater mostly to graduate students are the best bets.  There are newer developments further from school that are pretty good -- little more expensive sometimes, but if you hunt long enough, the price difference is negligible. 

I've lived in a newer 2 BR/2 BA place on the south end of AA with another graduate student roommate for some time, yet will be getting my own place for 3L due to the roommate's engagement.  I'm angling for something closer to campus for my last year, but the place I've lived in for awhile has been good -- five to ten minute drive to the commuter lot depending on traffic and then a five to ten minute bus ride to the law school depending on bus wait.  Newer building, no maintenance problems, reasonable rent.

What are the houses like that are like, within a 10 minute walk of the law quad?  Surrounded by super loud UGs or generally decent?

I haven't lived in one, but I've been in a few.  The best ones were the older buildings that had thick walls and were occupied mostly with graduate students.  They're often near party houses, but the noise didn't seem excessive or anything.  I've been looking around campus planning for signing a lease for next year and mostly just trusting my gut about areas.  There are definitely some within that range that will be more quiet.  I have my eye on one that's about a five minute walk and it didn't seem too bad.  That one was a little northwest of Hutchins, if memory serves.  I'll be looking at more places near campus once I'm back to AA, so I'll write more then.

It's been good.  I've watched My Cousin Vinny so many times I have it memorized.  I also kicked by cousins butts at poker several times.  Seeing the family has been pretty relaxing, but I need to get back -- we start on Wednesday.  Between journal and reading for classes, I'm already behind. :/
