Do any of y'all have info on the Munger residences? Yay or nay? I like the fact that there is a kitchen lol.
I've heard that a lot of them don't have windows. But they do come with a flatscreen TV.
One of the 2Ls actually showed me around his place at Mungers and I can verify that most individual rooms will not have a window. But there is a window in the living room area that you'll be sharing with 5(?) other people.

So if not having a window in your own bedroom is a big problem for you, then nay. If having a kitchen is very important to you, yay +1. If sharing the kitchen and living area with 5 other people is problematic, then nay +1.

I have to say though, the building facility itself was impressive! :)
Not having a window in my bedroom would be 100% depressing.

So, I may be wrong, but I believe you can live with a roommate at Northwood as a grad/law student?
You are correct! But that’s on north campus so you’d likely have a 20-30ish minute ride to get to the law school

Yea I have to jump in here and say that I lived in northwood as a freshman and it was super frustrating using the buses. Northwood is basically a bunch of self contained blocks of apartment and I lived at the one most convenient to accessing the busses. There were many others further away from a bus stop. The busses are always packed in the morning (with freshman) and can be unreliable, especially at night, which sucks in the winter. Also I found northwood, and north campus in general depressing as hell. There’s not a ton to do/see there if you’re not an engineering/music student.
If I was looking for cheap housing and didn’t care about being a bit of a bus ride away I’d 10/10 prefer living somewhere south of Stadium, or west of Main Street than at northwood again.
I would second not living in Northwood. Also university apartments actually tend to be more expensive than regular apartments (though you don’t need to find a subletter for the summer). I was looking at some places on brown street which are 15 min walking from the law school and a 2 bedroom apt was 750 for each person. So living a longer walking distance might work better than living on north campus in university housing.
I was also interested in Munger, for the chance to have a kitchen, but I heard from the housing panel the leases are 12 months there and that it is pretty much impossible to sublet it since access to the building is granted to your Mcard.
This is super helpful information -- thanks guys!!
There are 3 new apartment buildings being built in AA that are scheduled to be done this summer. I know "the Yard" is the name of one of them. They are advertising $700 rooms, not sure if that means like 5 bedroom or something though. Not sure what the other two are called; one is beside the Graduate hotel.

Has anyone who is not planning to live in the LC actually figured out their housing yet? I'm really hoping to live in the Phid house but have only just started looking at apartments if that doesn't happen.

Hi friends,

To anyone who applied for need based aid— how long did it take for you to hear back?

Anyone have a ballpark idea of how long it takes to be able to access the housing applications? I deposited almost two weeks ago and I still can't apply :/

No idea. But I thought it was hilarious that after I deposited they sent me an email saying hey thanks for the deposit. You want to send that second deposit? :lol: :lol:

Random question but do folks know if we send the official transcripts to the admissions office or the registrar's office?

You will also get a confirmation from admissions once they receive it from your school.

Are you all having your undergrad school physically mail the transcripts, or can they be delivered electronically?

I did! I'm really hoping to get Phid, otherwise it will be the LC for me most likely. Not having a kitchen though will break my heart :/

I was thinking of living off campus to save that $$$. LC is 12.5k-14k for 8 months and I feel like I can live off campus for 8kish. Am I too hardcore in my penny pinching? Is living in the LC that great first year? This damn website has made me too debt adverse sometimes smh... :lol:

Nah I think you’ve got the right idea. I’m doing the same. IMHO I would steer clear of the lawyers club, since you’ll probably want some time away from the law school for mental health purposes lol the dorm is literally in the law quad so if you live there you’re constantly around only lawyers and you NEVER leave the law quad. You’d go stir crazy, not to mention the savings
