Well, UNC did not have one of these fancy forums yet.... congrats to all accepted!

Is anyone planning on going to the ASD April 11th?

I'm going to be living at Glen Lennox (assuming my application gets approved). It was highly recommended to me by students I met while visiting both the law school and journalism school (I'll be a joint student).

Welcome to UNC -- I'm a graduating 3L moving to Raleigh in August and need to find tenants for my 3 BR Glen Lennox apartment (starting in August). Send me an e-mail if you are interested, or have any questions about UNC in general - pdlawler@live.unc.edu.

I saw those places, and it didn't have washer/dryer in the unit iirc...so it's not on my shortlist.

Very cool, how does that work? Taking more classes or splitting up the years/semester?

I was thinking about Southern Village... does anyone have an opinion about the apartments there/the commute to the law school?

I don't know anything about the apartments, but get used to buses again.

It feels like high school again...buses, lockers, preset schedule...

Haha that's true, I never thought of it that way. Are any of you buying/bringing a car? I don't have one now and I am not sure if it is worth the investment.

I'm bringing mine, driving up from Atlanta anyways. I think it's not completely necessary considering that the buses are free in CH, but you will mostly have to stay on campus and in CH, but I imagine life can get pretty miserable without one.

It depends on which unit type you get at Glen Lennox. The one I'm on the list for (the renovated deluxe or something like that) has W/D. Trust me, that is a NON-NEGOTIABLE for me.

Basically, my first year will be spent completely in the law school, then I'll split my time between the two schools for three additional years. (woooo 4 years!)

I'm bringing a car, but I figure I'll leave it parked most of the time and just use it for groceries, etc. I talked to a bunch of current students about it, and that seemed to be the consensus on the best plan.

Same here, I cannot be in a place without W/D...but it seems like every place doesn't include them.

Any idea when the FB group is going up? I might need to look for roommates or at least places where other students are gonna live so we can all enjoy the misery of 1L together.

Also, anyone heard anything from UNC lately? The last thing they sent me was some sort of e-pamphlet.

I ended up going with a 2-bed JUST for the W/D.

Not sure when the FB group is going up. I think they were doing a last round of admits today, so maybe soon? I haven't heard anything since ASD Apr. 11 except confirmation that they received my deposit.

Why is there a wait list for getting rooms? Should I hurry and determine where to live?

edit: FB group is up!

There's a waitlist at Glen Lennox and a few other places I looked at. People I know in the area encouraged me to get housing figured out quickly.

I am on the waitlist for Bell Meadowmont (and am in search of a roommate..) because it is supposedly a popular place for UNC grad students. I visited Glenn Lennox during the admit weekend but decided against it when current students told me that there are a number of cockroaches and rats that I would encounter if I lived there and there used to be a peeping tom...

also, i searched fb for the group, I dont see it :(

Apparently the FB group invite will not be sent out until you pay BOTH seat deposits

There is a waitlist for housing already? I wasn't planning on securing housing for a few more weeks. I was looking at Meadowmont and Southern Village specifically.

So once we have paid both seat deposits what is the process of getting added to this mysterious Facebook group?

Same here, looking at meadowmont if they have W/D in them, or at least connections so i could hook up a rented set...why do these places not include them?? Every apartment near other major college campuses do. Also heard that the bus only runs like once every 45 mins to this place so you better not miss it.
