Hi everyone,

I have been recently accepted into Scholl class of 2026. I was wondering if anyone had suggestions for pet friendly housing nearby and what to expect going into my first year. Thanks!

During my open house/interview, they were saying that The Woodlands building 7 was pet-friendly I believe. Also was just accepted, so can't speak on what to expect :)

Accepted last week. Submitted my deposit this week! Does anyone know what the transportation situation is like? I was told it's manageable to live at RFU without a car (as opposed to other schools I applied to and got accepted at). I plan to live on campus. (submitted that application already).

It’s not bad, most people have cars but there are some who didn’t have a car and just used instacart for groceries until they made friends that they could carpool with. As far as going down into the city goes, there’s a train station about a 20 minute walk from campus that takes you to the heart of the city. Remember you’re in the suburbs here and it’s safe but it does help to have a car if you can afford it!

I saw from last year's thread that there is a drug test along with the background check on castle branch. I don't see this info on my portal anyone know where I can find the form to have it done?

I don't have it on the portal either, also really never heard any communication regards a drug test, and tbh, if they were to do one, I think it would be easier for them to do it in house, but that's just my 2 cents regards your question, I genuinely have no idea. Have you asked anyone at RFU that would have more information regards that?

Yeah I never was notified or anything even if they do it it’ll be on campus probably. I just wanted to make sure I wasn’t missing anything since it was on the last years acceptance thread! I haven’t directly reached out to RFU and asked any admins yet tho
 
Drug test is for clinicals which occur in 2nd year. I still don't even know when that is.

From conversations with the P2s, the timing for the drug test varies between the students. Some got them earlier than others

Similar boat. Barry interviewed me, but rejected my ass the very next day. Sitting on an acceptance to RFU while I wait to hear back from other schools.
