I will be attending UIC in the fall for the MUPP program and thus need to find an apartment. I plan on going out next week to look and was wondering if the throbbing brain had any suggestions. I've looked on Craigslist but I'm sure that is only a small representation availiable units in the area. Do any of you suggest I use one of the apartment search firms? Or is it better that I do it independently? Any suggestions of neighborhoods? I wouldn't have a car so it would have to be close to the '"el" or the University. Any help is appreciated.
