UF Graduate Tax Program Admitted Students


SummaJD8

Hey everyone! Just wondering if there's anyone else here who will definitely be attending the UF Graduate Tax Program this fall? I recently decided to go to UF over Georgetown after qualifying for the Academic Common Market Program offered to residents of southeast U.S. I'm still looking into housing and hoping to plan a trip to visit the law school in the upcoming weeks. I'm taking the Texas bar in July so not too much time between studying, taking the bar, then moving to Gainesville. Any help from other admitted students or Alumni would be greatly appreciated. Thanks in advance!

Awesome, congrats! Which city are you taking the Bar in? Also, here's a link to a Facebook group for the 2011-2012 program: https://www.facebook.com/#!/groups/171789356208082/ . They have some good info on housing and the program in general. Good luck studying for the Bar, see you in August!

Hey all, I am likely (90% sure) joining you this August in Gainesville.

As for housing, I am also trying to do this remotely but have heard living in midtown or downtown is better for graduate students. Have you guys heard anything about the Continuum or the Bartram? Was the Continuum the residence featured in the UF graduate housing letter that was sent out post-acceptance? I think I may have accidentally thrown that letter out.

I'll most likely be at the Continuum. You can get all the info you need at http://www.thecontinuumforufgrads.com. I received a post card from them in addition to an email after receiving my acceptance. Everything can be done via email and they're very helpful and friendly with any questions or concerns you may have. See you in August!

I'm a student who just graduated. I only know a handful of students who lived at the Continuum. It's nice and all, but it is INSANE expensive for Gainesville.

There are decent, cheap apartments about a mile from the law school on the corner of 34th and 2nd. Last year, there were probably 8-10 of students living at Camelot, at least 6 at Cazabella, and 2 at Hawaiian Village. They're about half the cost of the Continuum.

Thanks, Jon Roy. Did you graduate from the Tax LLM program? If so, do you recommend it, and how are the employment stats for your class?

Thanks for your input Jon. A few people from the Facebook group recommended Camelot and Cazabella as well. However, I chose to sign with Continuum because it is fully furnished and the rent is all inclusive of utilities. Since I only plan on being in Gainesville from August to May and have just a couple weeks between the bar exam and moving, the convenience is worth it for me. Anyways, Zeeble has some good questions so any information on your experience at UF and/or the Tax Program would be greatly appreciated!

I've also been told by friends who went to UF that camelot and cazabelle, though close and cheap, are not very nice places to live in.

Zeeble,

Maybe your buddy is pretty picky, but I lived in Camelot for eleven months without a major issue. One time my plumbing was out, but I called and it was fixed by the time I got back from class. The carpet in the rooms is by no means new, but it is more than fine. The apartments at Cazabella and Hawaiian Village are equivalent and more spacious, and their sizes are much bigger - I'd live there.

If you require granite countertops, go for the Continuum. If you can stand less - go with Camelot, Cazabella, or Hawaiian Village. Its only a year.

Also - btw. All three of those apt complexes offer furnished apartments.

Jon.roy, I tried to message you, but it said that it never sent. I'm interested in all of the books. Do you know how much shipping would be / is there any way I could just pick the books up in Gainesville in August?
