    I received Jefferson's housing application a couple of weeks ago. Is it just me, or are they asking us to complete it before we even decide if we're going to go to the school? It sounded like they were saying that decisions for housing are made on a first come first serve basis and that you don't even need to be sure that you will be attending in order to submit the application. Has anyone submitted it? If so, what housing arrangement are you choosing?
    Thanks!

    i submitted it today. i don't think it's a first come first serve basis but i might have misread it, actually i was probably too lazy to read it all the way through. i picked a 3 bedroom at barringer as my first choice, it seemed the nicest and most cost effective as long as i don't get crazy roommates.

    Do you have to rank all the choices? Or do you rank the top 3? 5? How did you rank the other choices?

    Somehow your housing is decided by the order in which they receive your application. You should submit it as early as possible to give yourself the best shot at what you want. I think a friend of minesubmitted it before she was accepted (she might have been waitlisted). I only heard this in casual conversation with her, though, since I didn't interview at Jeff.

    When I went, most did. I also heard about the frats that they have on campus that are only like $200/month which is awesome but you have to wait till spring semester to live in them. Guess I should get the app in soon.

    I live near jefferson right now and there are a wide range of options available if you do not want to live in the student housing.

    I can't live in the student housing because they don't allow any pets.

    There is a huge apartment complex across the street from the hospital, the Ben Franklin House. Rates are a little bit more than the jeff housing but you get more independence and don't have to sign in guests and stuff like college.

    craigslist also have a bunch of options as well

    I've just received my housing information today, but I found out that most of the rooms are unfurnished, so if IT SAID THAT THE ROOM IS UNFURNISHED, DOES it mean that we have to buy our own bed and couch? I'm an out-state student, so please help.

    I live in the Jefferson apartments right now and yes they aren't furnished. But they're really nice though as far as the size of the apt., location and price. Come sign up, we'll all be neighbors!!
