The bookstore on the Newton campus is pretty lame and creepy. For anyone who hasn't been there, it's in the not-so-amazing building next door and down through some hallways and such. Not much of a selection of anything, but I'm sure there's a better one somewhere. I got a BC law shirt there that was way too long but fit normally everywhere else. It shrunk in the dryer and now has that borderline too tight look to it. Oh well, I'll be buying more BC stuff soon enough.
hey. yeah the bookstore is really crappy compared to the undergrad one, but it's also a bit less expensive. the selection is limited, but whatever, i still plan to rock the bc law gear. the regular bc bookstore on main campus is really nice, but doesn't sell bc law stuff.
Dana, what's your definition of reasonable and how many bedrooms were you looking for? I'm going to try and make my way up in early June and hope I can find a good August 1 move-in.
i was looking for a 2 bedroom with my roommate, and we are both going to have cars, and we were hoping to find a place with 2 parking spaces (whether they came with the apt, or we had to rent separately) for a grand total of 900 per person or less, with an august 1 move in. we were looking in brighton, brookline, and allston. we found a place that fit our description, but it was so far away from public transportation, that we really thought no one would visit us and we'd have a hard time going out ever b/c there was no T near by, so we'd have to drive everywhere, so that place was eliminated.
we looked at about 10 places with 3 different realtors (there are about 150 realty companies on comm ave in brighton/allston), and they all told us august 1 would be hard, and said if we could do sept 1 it would open whole new doors for us, so we emphasized over and over that sept 1 would leave us homeless for at least a week b/c classes start in august. they never seemed to quite grasp that.
anyway, we found a place in brighton, price was good, but as of right now we havent rented parking spots, we're hoping something a bit cheaper presents itself. if we rent the spots we can now, we will be paying a total of about 940/month, which is more than we were hoping for, but whatever, we'll figure it out im sure. plus our lease starts either july 1 or 15, i should be hearing from them today regarding the date. so ill have it for at least 2 weeks when i won't be up there full-time, but again. whatever. we'll deal with it haha.
Sooo, anyone know about sports tickets? Dana? You seem to know just about everything.
you can buy season tickets for all the sports on bceagles.com. right now i think only football tix are on sale already. im not 100% sure if there's a grad student discount (im leaning towards no) but i plan to call them within the next few days to find out, and i'll post their response. there are student tickets, but for some reason i think they may be referring solely to u-grad students. i know they have an alumni discount, but that's not really applicable for most of you...
sorry for the uber-long post. let me know if you have any other questions.
