Anyone have any suggestions about finding a roommate for Regents or when I should have an application in there by? Unfortunately, I'm not going to be able to hit the ASW since I'm going to be out of town during April.
ASW really is a good place to meet a possible future roommate, but the admissions office usually sets up a message board where you can also find a roommate. But I live alone, so hopefully someone else here can chime in on the roommates thing.
I submitted an application during ASW, and didn't see any problems in terms of a waiting list or anything. But Regents managements sucks. Just be forewarned. Your leasing agent may driving you crazy with their ineptitude.
Also, is everybody pretty well in agreement that New Grad sucks and Regents is where it's at? I'd like to actually be social.
In addition to the pro-Regents posts earlier in this thread*, New Grad also sucks because its a dorm and no one should like staying in a dorm.
That being said, I know a lot of people that do live in New Grad, some of whom don't mind the fact they stayed there during their first year (for a combination of reasons: convenience, cost, social reasons, etc.). But none of them plan on staying in New Grad, whereas some people actually are staying in Regents next year.
* = I feel bad saying "pro-Regents" since I'm not actually a big fan of Regents. It was a good place for my 1L year, but the only way I stay here next year would be due to inertia.
