Got a postcard in the mail today with a handwritten note from Dean Crixell. Well that is just plain nice.

Not to in any way undermine the awesomeness of Erin Crixell, as it is vast and peerless, but she's Asst. Dir of Admissions rather than a dean.

But I got one today too! Along with my SMU waitlist letter. Outgoing mail held my $200 deposit to UH. Torn, very torn.

Duly noted.

I'm sorry, I wasn't trying to be contrary.

No worries. I should probably learn this before I go to the damn school  ;D

Does anyone have an suggestions about finding a place to live besides calling to check out ads on craigslist? Has anyone had luck with an apartment locator service?

If you're willing to put up w/ them, Latter and Blum isn't bad from what I understand.

Once you actually get someone to talk with you, they have fantastic service.  The first part is seriously a challenge it seems.

The first time I called - I talked to someone and had wonderful service.  This apartment hunting season, I have had to call probably 6 times to get anyone to talk with me.

I am honestly dreading leaving NOLA for the summer.  I didn't realize how happy NOLA makes me until I thought about leaving.  /emo  :'(

Botbot,

I have a question for you.  It seems like Tulane people do alright in Dallas and Houston, but I'm afraid I'll never have access to Texas markets because I have no Texas ties.  Do people fix this problem by doing an unpaid 1L summer in Texas, or do you have to have a more significant tie?

Texas has such great markets, I'm pissed I'm not from there.  But I can't get into UT and I don't want to go one of the Texas T2s, as I don't want to be confined to Texas.  Coming from Tulane or a similar school, I feel like I could get what a SMU/UH student could get, if only I could convince firms that I'm serious about Texas.

Houston is less concerned with ties than Dallas and a good 1L summer spent in either city would go a long way.

You will have opportunities to express your desire to live in Texas to the firms - you just have to make sure you take advantage of them.
