    OK, so I'm going to some 2nd look trips for MD/Phd acceptees... but I'm also waiting to hear back from about 3 schools.

    How are you guys handling housing? I'd rather not have to fly back out there again before I move to sign a lease for an apartment. Have any of you found apartments on the internet? Is there any way to avoid paying for another trip prior to actually moving? Money is really tight right now. I was planning on using the 2nd look trips as a time to possibly sign a lease, but now that I know that I wont hear back from some schools yet, I cant really do that because I dont know for sure where i'll be headed.

    How are the rest of you guys handling this? If only those schools would make up their mind or something.

    Wow - what is wrong with you guys? Macguyver asked a legitimate question. M - if I remember correctly Lady in Red did all this (found an apt etc). You might want to PM her. Good luck :)

    Do you remember "I have 8 interviews. Who can beat me??" Or maybe "Who here has the most Ivy league inteviews?" That's why this guy is a truly terrible person. (among I'm sure many other reasons.

    This guy is very much a troll, but I don't really see anything very troll-like in this post. Maybe he's turning over a new leaf, so to speak...

    I'm all for fresh starts. Anyway, I think lots of schools provide info about certain complexes that are common for med students to live in when there's no dorm. Are other people not finding this true?

    For those who are absolutely unable to ignore the trolls without spewing vitriol, you can have SDN virtually ignore the trolls by clicking on the "ignore this member" link when you go to the troll's profile page.

    Doing this is probably a little better for everyone. Let's keep SDN out of the gutter. :)

Questions don't have to be posed by "nice" or "popular" people in order to deserve an answer, IMHO.

    Anyway, without getting too philosophical about this... Use your second look weekend for EVERYTHING! Make use of every second because it is a great opportunity to get some work done-- see your FA counselor, check out housing, get all the mundane paperwork in order. You're there anyway, you might as well extend your stay for 2-3 days just to get everything in order to prevent future useless trips and wastes of money. However, even if you do that, you will still probably have to make 1-2 trips back again, just to get everything up to par before actually making the big move. If the city is close enough to drive without you freaking out, I'd go for it and save some money that way. As for the internet, I don't really trust too much on the internet (even SDN <img border="0" title="" alt="[Wink]" src="wink.gif" /> ) esp if you're planning on living in this place for the next 4 years-- I'd want to see it in person and check out EVERYTHING with the owners/landlords, & check ou the area too, rather than trust an internet description which will inevitable be misleading. In a nutshell: milk your 2nd look weekend for everything it's worth-- even weeding out roommates for you.

    Yes, as many others on this site will testify, you are definitely the whole enchilada... and by enchilada, you know exactly what I mean. <img border="0" title="" alt="[Wink]" src="wink.gif" />

  35. I think this thread has deteriorated, into a flirthing thread between praying4md, and brandonite and ucla2000 flirting for her affection

    Her: "I need an abduction pillow to OR 7."
    Me: "Okay..."
    When I went to take it to her, there was one on the bed right outside the hall.

    Second time...
    Her: "I need an aluminum finger splint and plaster cast to OR 8."
    Me: "Aren't those on the CAST cart right outside OR 8?"
    Her: "Ummm... I don't know, I haven't looked... I'll call you back."
    She never called back.

    But, I actually like getting calls for a change. Too much of my time is spent doing nothing!

    I saw the topic of this thread, and even though the course of the conversation has diverged from it, I thought I'd try to give a helpful response about housing.
    If you don't want to fly across the country to look at apartments, I'd recommend getting on the internet and using "homestore.com". I narrowed down my selections through this and used it to find a nice place in downtown Detroit. After using the site to get some additional information from the apartment company I set up a tour and turned in a lease application.
    The info on homestore was pretty darn helpful for me...I'd recommend it for apartment shopping.
    :)

    And to the guy actually trying to answer the question - way to go! Kudos! Don't mind us... :D

    Just keep the rash stuff to yourself, and we'll call it even. As long as praying doesn't find out, I might still have a chance... <img border="0" title="" alt="[Eek!]" src="eek.gif" />

And how could i not give my parents a shout too- lilycat and goatboy, i LOVE you guys. You're the best parents ever. You guys nurtured me when i was a fledgling SDNer and showed me how to succeed. i know my 30 seconds is coming to a close but i'd like to thank everyone else that played a part in this- it was a long time coming and you've been the best!

    First off, call the Student Affairs office -- if they haven't already sent you housing info., they should. Usually it's info. about the dorms (if they have any), and nearby neighborhoods for off-campus housing/names & numbers of realtors, etc. If they give you realtor info., call and try to schedule an appt. during your 2nd look weekends.

    Secondly, use the 2nd look weekends as an opportunity to grill the current students about housing options -- safety, convenience, price, etc. You might find some good leads this way.

    Third, set up the appt. with the realtor, and use it to get a feel for lots of the possible housing options. This is especially helpful if there are certain neighborhoods full of condos or apartments nearby that the students often use. That way, if you have to wait until May or June to get a place (most places become available 30-60 days before the new lease date) you can hopefully select from a complex or neighborhood you have already seen.

    Where is goatboy these days, anyway?

    And just so I can contribute something constructive as well... I'll second what lilycat said. Talk to Student Affairs. And current students. They should be able to help you out much more than we can.
