    Thanks! Good to know. I was a grad student there last year at the COM while it was being built, so it'll be nice to finally use it.

    Hey I'll prob see you all there! Hopefully the CARE building won't be too cold. I heard it was cold b/c they just built it and the "environmentally friendly" heating system isn't all engaged yet haha. I really am looking forward to UC Med!

    It is a really nice building, but they have all these windows that are time to open at different times during the day and night. It isn't a big deal, but when it is like 20F outside, it can get pretty chilly!

    What up Pedsbro, looks like I'll most likely be joining you next year as well. If you are who I think you are, then you know who I am (I drove you to pick up your futon).

    You guys know where you're living next year?

    Haha, of course I know who you are... I'm staying put in my current place at least for the first year. I love it down here. The others still have that house that they all rent, so most of them will probably stay there, but I don't know. Congrats man...see ya around

    Took only 2 weeks for me, but I interviewed pretty early and I've heard the lag time is a bit longer now...probably more like 3-4 weeks. Post in the Cincinnati interview invite thread (http://forums.studentdoctor.net/showthread.php?t=557058) or secondary application thread (http://forums.studentdoctor.net/showthread.php?t=539324), you'll probably get more responses.

    Barring the improbable scholarship offer, looks like it's Cincy for me. :)

    Look forward to seeing everyone in August.

    I've never heard anything about it. But I'm sure you can arrange something on your own. What did you have in mind? Sitting in on a class and that sort of stuff?

    Alot of schools hold events for accepted students to give a more thorough tour of the school, allow potential classmates to socialize, and to woo students. I was just curious if UC had one. I've already got second-look invites from two other schools I've been accepted to.

    Congrats!
    Haha, I didn't know Safeways were still around...not sure there are any here; at least I've never seen one.

    Good, fairly close places to live include Downtown (pricey, but nice), Hyde Park (most popular for students), Oakley, and certain places in Clifton (i.e. Stetson Apts, Piedmont Mews, etc) and the Gaslight District (off of Ludlow Ave). All of them have a Kroger store nearby for food and anything else you need pretty much. Avoid Over-the-Rhine and Corryville, even though rents are cheap. You can even look in Northern Kentucky.. There are tons of nice suburbs too that aren't terribly far (although not sure biking will work on those cold and snowy days...). Here are two major rental companies in the city. Good luck!

    You can definitely set something up on your own. I did and it worked out great just give the admission office a call and they can get you in touch with some of the student workers and let sit in on classes. Also if you are interested in research just look on the UC web site and call researchers that are working with projects you are interested in. Most of them are really friendly and welcome a chance to meet with future students and give you the scoop on student research and what is available to you.

    So it is mostly all on your own initiative, but it is worth the extra effort if you are on the fence.

    congrats on getting in! i haven't been inside the stetson apartments yet but they do look really nice from the outside, and you CANNOT beat that location except for the piedmont mews which is 50 yards closer haha... aren't the stetson places expensive?

    Congrats! Stetson is very nice inside, I've been in there several times. Pricier than most places that close to school though, so a roommate is a good idea. I doubt you'll have much trouble finding one as August rolls closer.

    hey, when should i start scouting for a place to live (when do most people move out around school and start making places available?)
    i was wondering if there was a website where students would post a list of available apartments and make life easier for the rest of us :)

    most of the undergrads are already booking up places for next year, so its not too soon to begin your inquiries.

    Many of the websites listed above have less than stellar reputations with landlords, so be wary. (Some strictly rent your typical "college" houses for 19 year olds to trash with beer cans every year)

    I have found the best luck with craigslist, quite honestly.

    I have lived in clifton/ downtown / mt adams and surrounding areas for several years...if any of you have any questions regarding neighborhoods id be happy to answer.

    I believe after the first year you can get resident tuition rate (or if you'll have lived in OH for 12 consecutive months before matriculation)

    For residency you just have to live in Ohio for 12 months and show you didn't get any funds from elsewhere right?
    It'll help if you keep good records of your apartment leases, and maybe get a Ohio driver's license (and maybe even register to vote in OH). Hopefully this won't be too hard to do :)

    also.. sucks I can't make it too the second look.. tickets are expensive haha

    Yeah, the residency thing sounds easy...but they want every possible record of your income to make sure you didn't get a dime from anywhere but within the state (or federal loan money). You have to register to vote and get a license (and if you own your car, it must be registered here). They really dont' want to make it too easy...after all, we're talking about almost a $20,000 difference between IS and OOS tuition.

    The license and voting registration are easy...as long as you have a valid license from another state, you just have to take the written exam, which is cake. There are a few hoops to jump through with getting your car registered, but not too bad. The income thing is the major road bump for most people.

    4 more months...

    Hey, I'm sort of OOS... I'm from Cali too, moved out here in late 2007 to do the Cinci SMP. Where in Cali? (I'm from O.C.) Get ready for a major change in scenery my friend :cool:

    -I also got that email about a status change, but did not see any new links or updated info. Did you two RSVP to that orientation thing on May 1st? I wonder if it has to do with that...
