Don't forget; you may only use "spartan" as a pejorative now that you are a Wolverine.

I know, I learned that on my way home (I visited a friend at MSU. Even their trees have giant green S's spraypainted on them!). Congrats on NYU, btw!!

I only really participated on Friday (Thursday I was working, Saturday I did my own Ann Arbor thing), but I had a great time. The school was decked out in its Sunday best - sushi buffet, craft beer, "classes" taught by department heads. It was great to meet everyone, though, and get a sneak peek at the next couple of years. I'm SO glad I'm ending up at Ross. The students are real, down-to-earth, funny, witty, the opportunities abound! Anu1979 and I did get stuck in line in a dank basement bar trying to get to the student band performance, but as soon as they played the opening riffs to Hot for Teacher, all was forgiven.

I'm glad that you guys had fun! Wish I could've been there. Am I now the only one that you guys haven't yet met in person?

Yea, big congrats on the Stern admit, coakleym!!!

GBR was great. I'll be honest, I have been a little pre-occupied with the fact that my doctor's office mixed up some of my labs and gave me a bloody "potential cancer diagnosis" a couple of weeks ago and quite frankly, my heart was really not into it because I've been dealing with that shock and the thought of maybe rolling over admissions and working for an additional year for the insurance for a while now. Fortunately, I got more testing done very quickly and everything came back negative today and the whole thing was a screw up at the lab. I am incredibly freaking relieved, especially since I didn't have a single symptom of anything.

Anyway, aside from the fact that I was too stressed by the thought of having cancer to enjoy anything, I met GoBruins and conmisdosmanos (with bonus boyfriend), and they were all lovely. I very much liked Ross and am happy with where I ended up.

Oh man, sorry to hear that! Can't imagine how nerve-wracking it would be to undergo a mix-up like that! Glad everything turned out for the best.

OMG that totally happened to me last year! Isn't not having cancer the BEST?!

Wait I don't think I met conmisdosmanos or milias, where were you guys?

Well, you didn't meet me, most likely because I didn't go to GBR.

But if you really wanted to know what I look like, search for me by my email address on Facebook.

GoBruins, we missed each other. All in good time... Did you end up finding housing as well? I think I'll go back up in May to do some serious searching.

I'm definitely leaning toward woodbury gardens, I have been from the start. The housing close to the school just seems way to run down. I wished there was a easy way to look at all of them at once.

I agree most of the inventory close to the school looks run down, but it may be worth it to check out a few places if you can get enough information prior to visiting. I found a place over the weekend on Brown Street that doesn't look so hot from the outside, but is a "find" from the inside.

I ended up on "Old West Side" with Varsity Management. There's a bus stop outside my house that brings me within a mile of Ross, and then I can walk the rest of the way or take another bus after .25 miles of walking that brings me within a couple of blocks.

Basically I was just wandering around late on Saturday and they were about to leave and pitched me this apartment. Aside from the fact that it's in a really pretty neighborhood, they sold me by giving me the heat/water/gas/trash included in the rent, no pet deposit, no monthly pet fee, summer storage and they're furnishing the place. It's smaller than Woodbury (600 sq. feet) but the fact that they're furnishing it (except for the mattress, which I refuse to sleep on) is huge. Plus, after you add up all of Woodbury's surplus charges and think about the fact that they admitted it costs a $150 a month to heat in the winter, they're really not all that cheap. I ran the numbers and even if I eat the whole cost of the rent in the summer in this place, the price is about comparable. The landlords said they're usually able to get people to sublet over the summer (we'll see). My father pointed out that the bus situation in winter might get a little tricky (esp. if you're carrying a lot of stuff and the computer) so I'm thinking about investigating monthly car permit options in the forest street plaza in a couple of weeks and seeing if anyone wants to set up a rideshare to split the cost. A. :O you ditched me!

Does anyone know what the consequences are if you register but end up not being able to go for whatever reason, given that it's still 4 months away? When would I have to fork over the cash? _________________ Respect my Authoritaaah!
