Well, yay! I got into McFadden, the school owned apartments. The free-for-all signup opened at 7 am, and it is 7:18, and McFadden is officially full. That's how quickly it fills up. I even got on first floor, where I wanted to be, and I'm on the end of the apartment, so less noise from all my roommates will be heard! Yay!
Ok, so maybe getting up at 5 am was worth it after all.
