    I will be attending HU in the Fall as well. Congrats to everyone on their acceptance:D I have began to look for housing already. Check out Craigslist.com, this website is very helpful.

    When you go to Craigslist.com look on the right hand side where it lists US States, Click on DC. The middle column is Housing- Click in apt/housing. The listings for DC will include DC proper as well as the surrounding areas, such as MD and VA. Many students live in Hyattsville, Silver Spring, Tacoma Park just to name a few, which are all in MD, but a hop, skip, and a jump from DC.There will be a ton of listings however, you can narrow your search by $$$. At the top of the page you can type in the min and max amount and # of bedrooms you are looking for. I hope this helps:)

    After acceptance, I received that big packet stating congrats, etc. It also included medical paperwork and I think housing info but I had kept my interview packet with housing info. I haven't received anything else but I suggest giving them a call to help you decide the next move.

    I have a similar question...after they have given you their acceptance packet..with the acceptance letter, medical forms, etc. have they given you anything else??

    Also, we just had to pay our first deposit of $400, there wasnt a second deposit right??


    Thanks!

    I don't think there's a second deposit...hmm...I hope not. After I got the acceptance packet I went ahead and called the Howard Plaza Towers and asked them to send me a housing app. since on-campus housing is first come first serve.

    Ok cool, well if none of us have received any further paperwork, I think we're safe. I called to make sure that they received my acceptance...and I asked if there's any more paperwork we should get. Mrs. Washington told me that there's nothing else to be done, and we should get some more info in the mail in July sometime...

    I was accepted at Howard too. :) As far as housing goes, I've been looking for apartments on rent.com, craigslist.org, and apartmentfinder.com. It seems like anything in DC is really expensive, but I have found some great and relatively cheap places in MD and VA.

    Has anyone been able to find any information on the NBDE part 1 or 2 pass rates for the school. I called the admissions office and was told that they don't have that kind of information. I'm not hating on the school, I just want to know what I'm in for at Howard.

    Ok...what is relatively cheap housing? I hate shopping around :( . Well I need to get a job after graduation anyway. Where is the rest of the class?...the roommate situation is definitely cheaper than a one bedroom or something like that. O well...

    I'm gonna be starting at Howard this August as well. Any one have any ideas or suggestions on housing? I have no idea where to even start looking. Having roommates would definitely be cheaper from what I can tell by looking at places online.

    Im looking into housing in MD because it is much cheaper. So far, im leaning towards Silver Spring area, it seems pretty decent with relatively cheap housing.

    I got accepted to Howard too, but I have no idea where I'm going to live. Help!!! Is it too late for on campus housing. I was waiting for an application or something in the mail, I hope I'm not too late. Have any of you guys heard from the financial aid office? I want to know if I'll even be able to afford it.

    Another thing....the financial aid office told me they won't start downloading the FAFSA's until maybe the first week of school...so you should make sure you have your first months rent covered and some living expenses.
