    My Daughter called the housing office. They said notifications on housing/roommates would be mailed in late June/early July. We are looking for anyone from the South (like Georgia, Tennessee, Mississippi, Louisiana, South Carolina, Alabama) (since she is from Alabama) that is going to Pitt to email, if anyone is interested.

    Coming from the deep South here. Pitstopinpurg1, I heve sent you a pm. May I suggest that you students check out something called facebook.com. Once you're enrolled in a university and get an ID number you somehow wind up in facebook and college students from all over contact each other there. D has already been contacted by at least one OOS going to Pitt on facebook. Don't know how it works but if you're a college kid, I'm sure you'll figure it out.

    We're off to Pittstart! Wish us luck!

    Has anyone heard yet? My daughter's Pittstart session is 7/24-25, and we were hoping she'd have her dorm assignment before we went.

    my pittstart is also the 24 and 25 but i have heard nothing.. i applied for special housing (SPACE) though, so that may be why it is taking longer??

    bwang, what people do is add random people on facebook, and try to make friends that way. almost everyone does that, and its nicer to kind of know people when you arrive here. I made some great friends that way as well, and well, it works!

    My daughter's going for microbiology, 7/24-25.

    I wonder what placement tests she'll have to take? She just got her AP scores, with a 4 in Calculus. She also took a year of Freshman English here at Kent State--hope she can get out of that class at Pitt.
