I've added a few helpful links to the top post, including that Emory Housing Finder link. If anyone finds anything useful, I'll add it to the list.
I'm also considering Post Briarcliff and I have a few thoughts,
1. The price for their 1 bedroom apartments is certainly on the high end for their area ($800-$1000). The rent and utilities will come close to breaking Emory's alloted living expenses budget. Given the high cost, I'm considering opting for a two bedroom if I can find a decent roommate. By my calculations, taking on a roommate at Post would reduce costs by about $3600 per year, which would knock about $10,000 off the full three years of school (or about $150-$200 off the monthly loan payment). If anyone else needs a roommate at Post Briarcliff, or somewhere else in the area, feel free to PM me and we can discuss this further (I'm a guy if that matters to you).
2. It is easy to rent from Post. I spoke to one of their leasing officers on Saturday (Marie, I think) and she was incredibly nice and helpful. They require a very small deposit for Emory students.
3. After you send in the deposit and application, they will constantly update you over the summer as apartments become avaliable. For example, I sent in an application for a one bedroom, with a few preferences specified. As people decide not to renew their leases, one of the people at Post will contact me and let me know what my choices are. I can take what they offer or reject it and wait for something better. They'll email pictures of the apartment in question if you can't get down there to take a look in person.
4. I find that it would be useful in law school to have as little outside hassles as possible. For this reason it sounds comforting to me to have a sound living situation that causes me no trouble, and adds no extra distractions to my life.
5. Post Briarcliff doesn't rent to undergrads.
6. They do criminal background checks on all their tenants.
All this said, I'd still consider another apartment complex, or house, if was similarily hassle free.
