    Bloomington, IN

    I'm moving to Bloomington in the fall and have found a great apartment on the south side of town called Steeplechase. I had a friend that lived there while she was in law school and she said it was very quiet, clean, and had a good mix of grad school students and young professionals. Steeplechase is about 5 minutes from the mall (very important...haha) and 10 minutes from campus. It is also on the bus route which is free to IU students. Can't wait to move to Bloomington! yay!
  2. I initially wanted to go to SIU to work on my Ph.D...but when I visited Carbondale, I personally hated it. It kinda made me depressed. However, I have also lived in other less than exciting towns and found that in the end, it really isn't where you are, but who you are with that will make your time fun! So I think as long as you have a strong grad community you'll be able to find the joy that must exist in Carbondale
  3. I grew up right in between Indianapolis and West Lafayette and lived in Indy for about 4 years. I absolutely love Indianapolis and that would definitely be my choice over WL. Purdue is a great school and the campus area is really nice, but your options as far as things to do and places to go are much greater in Indy. I saw that you mentioend Greenwood as a possible place to live...personally Greenwood is one of my least favorite parts of Indianapolis. It is kinda run down and seems quite far away from everything. I definitely think that the Westside is your best bet. Avon, Plainfield, and Brownsburg are all excellent places to live. It is a really nice area of town and not ridiculously crowded like Carmel, Fishers, or the Keystone area. If you moved to Avon (which would be my first choice) you'd only be about 15 minutes away from downtown if you take the side roads. Plainfield is really growing, so it is starting to get a bit hectic over there, but it is very nice. Schools in the westside suburbs are also really great if you do, or plan, to have children while you're living there. If there is anything else I can help you with, I'd be glad to
  4. I'm not going to UNCW, but I live in Wilmington. Anything you want/need to know?
  5. Congrats! I think I have decided to attend IU for sure next year If you decide to go to IU, perhaps I'll be seeing you around!
  6. Awesome. Thanks for the info
  7. Hey all, Well I got accepted to my first school! yay : ) My question is that in the letter not one word was said about funding...do you think that means the information will be following...or I just didn't get any? I was admitted before the final deadline, so I'm (hopefully) assuming that they'll wait until all spots are filled before any offers will be made?? Any thoughts would be appreciated! I emailed the director of the program yesterday, but I haven't heard back...and I have no patience ...I want to know now! hehe
  8. Well the final deadline is tomorrow (the 15th) but I heard that they started going over completed files on Jan. 1st. I guess being obsessive and overzealous has paid off this time cause I started sending in app. stuff back in October
  9. Just heard back from IU, I'm in!!! yay
  10. Hey I am also applying to IU for a PhD in Education, but I'm hoping to get into the Curriculum and Instruction program. I'm already going crazy with this whole waiting process and the deadline for applications hasn't even passed yet! I also applied for a PhD in C&I at the University of Illinois Urbana Champaign. We should keep each other updated when we hear from IU
