    I was gonna call and set up an appointment to see a 3br and a 4br home that are listed with the same property management company. If orientation goes from 8-12 as planned, then we grab lunch, i was gonna set it up to have someone meet us at 2pm to show it. They are both pet friendly from what i can tell. I have some others I will need to call to set up, but those are the ones i wanna see first cuz they look really nice!

    i found some nice 3brs with w/d in unit. Im a huge fan of having that amenity. I looked at Portofino, they were my favorite in terms of apartments.

    Hey Jimmy, for me, im searching for as many bedrooms as possible in Temecula for under $1600. I would love to keep my rent at $400 but I can go up to about $450, which eliminates pretty much all the 2brs ive seen. Apartments I have seen don't have 4brs. Whatever I find online that meets those criteria im printing out and figure we can go look at them. The problem with not really knowing everybody, is that if for example 4 or 5 of us pile in a car and go see a 3br that is really nice... how do we decide who lives there? That's been my predicament from the beginning, but im gonna try my best to just go with the flow and see what happens. With master bedrooms the rent would be a little more just cuz that person gets a bathroom and larger living space, but we can work that all out when we all decide on a place. Pet people don't really have much of a choice in terms of where they live cuz some places don't allow pets. I could probably get away with sneaking my cat in just cuz she is an indoor cat and they would never know. I was avoiding asking too many question about people preferences, move in dates, etc until we met up and hung out a bit. I'm glad to see you are thinking the same thing I am tho. I have been estimating a move in date of the 9th just cuz that's the week before school starts and that will give us time to settle in and get ready.

    becca, i saw pet rent at a few of the apartments too. I hate that. Its lame enough they charge you an extra $300-$400 for deposit, then pet rent on top of that! At my last apartment they wanted $650 for pet deposit!! rediculous. Anyhoo, im finding with some of the houses, pet rent isnt an issue. I have about 5 houses I found in temecula that look decent, 3 and 4 br. The 4br is $1600 (400/person... woot!) the 3brs are between 1300 and 1450 i think. I saw a lot of places in murrieta too, but since there were plenty to chose from in temecula im kinda just eliminating other cities for the time being. Apartments are a lot more flexible with cats then dogs i found. They want like 1 small dog and 1 small cat. and some of them have specific buildings for dogs. doggie discrimination!! The houses i saw sunday were super cute tho, so im sure we can figure that out :) Have the dogs been aquainted with a cat before? Im sure there would be a bit of animosity in the beginning, but if things work out with the "pet people", im sure they would grow to love eachother :)

    Hi Jamie, I think that is the general idea. I have found plenty of places in temecula tho, so thats promising! The school is pretty centrally located so everything is relatively close!

    Maybe we should just plan for dinner at 7 at the chilis off Winchester and Ynez so everyone can make it. We can make a CSUSM Nursing sign out of napkins or something since I have no idea what people look like Are you all bringing lists of places you want to go see in terms of apartments or houses or were some of you planning to just drive around? I have about 5 on my list. 3 houses and 2 apartments. This is gonna take some coordination once we all meet up! Im excited tho :) Im sure the dog people are gonna want to look at houses just so they have a backyard, and i'd personally prefer a house, but if anyone is cool with doin the apartment thing with a kitty cat, im super flexible!

    Amy: No worries!!! I finished with school 6 months ago, so im sure if i was facing finals right now I wouldnt be able to bug you guys about what the plan is as much as I have Lucky me... I have all the time in the world to think about all this stuff! Best of luck! Im sure you will do fine! I'll email you my phone number and you can just call me or text me and let me know what time you think you'll be there. Otherwise I'll really have no way of getting in touch. Luckily I'll have my little hotel room to hang out in until everyone gets there! I thiiiiink its just gonna be you, me, jimmy and becca. Could you guys let me know for sure if you are coming Wednesday night? Im in the same situation with financial aid as you are srtyoacnkton. I dont really know if there is anything we can do. The counselors at extended learning are really knowledgable about financial aid and im sure they could tell you if there is anything you can do. (if you find that there is... please share!! :) )

    6:00? That will give me time for any traffic and checking into my room. if that doesnt work for everyone, let me know. Im just suggesting cuz no one else is :)

    Im doing lunch after orientation and dinner the night before also. I have no idea how many people we will end up with at lunch after orientation. There were lots of places around there to eat. Since everyone seems pretty preoccupied with school and stuff, would anyone be opposed to just meeting at Chilis Wednesday night? There is one on Winchester and Ynez Rd, right off the freeway. I dont really know people's preferences so I figure its safe, its cheap and most people have probably eaten there. If anyone has any other suggestions, PLEASE feel free to suggest. If all else, we can just meet up at the place I'm staying at or where someone else is staying and then decide who wants what :0) im up for whatev.

    Hey All, I just got a room at the Rodeway Inn. I have AAA so i got it for $54 total. That was the cheapest I found. Go book it on their website if you want the AAA discount. Its gonna be so nice not having to deal with traffic and the weather Thursday morning. So. Cal drivers and any sort of rain/weather = disaster on the roadways! LOL!!

    hey everybody! I went down to Temecula today to check about a half dozen places out. Im optimistic!! I found one 3br apartment i really liked, eliminated a couple places, and i drove past a few houses that also look really nice too! at least now we'll have a couple of places to look forward to :) With the houses we'll have to call and set up appointments to see them, but for the most part I saw some nice potential places. Im surprised and happy to admit i was wrong on this one :) Temecula isnt so bad! lots of shopping centers, grocery stores, etc. cant wait to meet you all! Becca, Amy, Jimmy or anyone else who wants to maybe meet up wednesday night, lemme know when/if you guys want to meet up, i need to know if i should get a room or not. Have a great rest of your weekend!

    CSU San Marcos absn 2009

    Hey everyone!! if i leave from work around 3:30 wednesday, i could be down that way by 5ish maybe 5:30 depending on traffic. I still cant decide if i want to get a room or not. im sure it will be nice to be able to sleep in a bit before orientation then casually get coffee and not have to rush and pray there isnt traffic! Where are yall staying? We could just Yelp a cool inexpensive place around there to eat or just drive around till something looks good :) hang out, ponder what we are gonna talk about at orientation, get to know eachother then crash out.

    sweet!! im coming from rancho cucamonga in the Inland Empire. Its about 45 mins for me. Im about 10 mins north of ontario airport. i'll PM you with my info and we can all get our grub on and hang out! on a side note about houses... im noticing a lot of them dont have refrigerators and washer/dryers. I emailed one guy to double check and he said that the appliances dont come with the house. super lame. They have the hook up obviously, but no appliances! thoughts or solutions?? im keeping a list of 3br apartments just cuz they will have all that stuff already. Im hoping to come across a house that has the appliances tho!
