Yes, I agree! @twoserious The communication was great - I've been applying through housing connect since 2014 & since then I've been on three interviews but this was the only interview where the people were friendly! You call or email and actually get a reply back @Aquafina the apartment was really nice & for a one br it was pretty spacious just absolutely beautiful!

It's random though, so lets say they got 500 applications for 10 spots. The computer chooses 20 numbers 1,2,3,4,5,6,7,30,125,200,275,400,401,402,403,404,4 05,409,485,499. You could have #409 and get called because numbers 1-275 either have no income, no longer live in NYC, got married/had children, died, in jail, had resident issues in the past and got denied, no longer meet the income requirements, never responded or decided to pass on it, etc. They gotta go through those applications though. You just wouldn't know until you got the call or you didn't. Don't lose faith!

I just think getting shown the apartments is a good sign. But I didn't get shown anything yet =/ I'm dying to see!

They called me this morning and I missed the call because I was on the train and on my way to work >:/

I've literally been calling back ALL DAY and getting bounced around. I need the universal forces to work in my favor on this one. Lol

I sent an email to the lady who handled my files and nothing. I hope I didn't blow it by going to work and being on the subway on time ������

Thank you so much! Hope all goes well in your favor @aquafina91 - @twoserious did they leave a voicemail at least? Try calling in the morning that's definitely a good sign that they called you!
