Have you heard anything good or bad about:
-Spectrum South End
-Fountains South End
-1225 South Church
I know the pictures online can be deceiving. Thanks for your help!
Great Lakes, Great Times
Based on your situation I'd think you'd want a place in uptown or one of the close surrounding neighborhoods such as Dilworth, South End, Elizabeth, or Plaza Midwood. If you live in any of those neighborhoods you'll be a cheap taxi into Uptown or if you live in South End you can just take the light rail. If you like the more hippie/artsy scene then you'd probably prefer NoDo.
Those apartments you've listed are all pretty similar. Of the 3 in South End I'd choose Fountains and 1225 South Chuch over Spectrum, although Spectrum may be the cheapest. You are close to the light rail with all 3 of those. Metro 808 is just outside uptown and right next to Plaza Midwood but you'd probably need a cab to get into uptown.
Saks - if you are not married to being "in" Uptown, I'd suggest checking out Post South End (great location, great bar on street level - World of Beer). I have no idea of rental rates these days so I apologize if it is outside of your budget. I lived in Post Gateway until 2010 (when I was 30 years old). By the time I left, I felt like the old guy in the building as it has quite a frat house feel (which was great for the first few years I lived there).
Forgot to mention: 99% of people here are transplants, seems like people are either from New York (state) or Ohio.
There are also a good number of Spartans here, with a strong alumni group: http://www.msuspartansnc.com
The floor plans that I was interested in at the Post South End are all booked at the moment..
