yeah, I spent the last few weeks listening to my friends whine and complain about bad slots and yet they still have some incredible housing arrangements on campus. I was shocked and where they've ended up.
in any case, "I wish this was something that she had known about before choosing to come to Cornell." ---> statistics about housing and on campus accomodations are readily available to anybody on Cornell's website.
And please, choose thread titles accordingly. A few people needing to live off campus in the middle of a major campus life housing overhaul is far from a "housing crisis."
