Holy hell. Is there any end in sight to the increases? Can we expect 4% increase every year from here until graduation?

If you factor in COL, it's still about the same price as Cardozo plus or minus a thousand dollars a year or so.

I was actually surprised how expensive housing is for Ithaca. (Ha, looking at housing for a school that hasn't let me in is so sad. :( ) Not NYC expensive, but comparable to mid-size cities and especially to other college towns, it seems kind of outrageous.

Dear lord.

It's not as bad as my private high school. Tuition's gone up 10% every year.

Housing is NOT expensive in Ithaca. My sis pays like $400/month (if that). I dunno where you're getting that idea from.

It depends for where and for what you're looking. If you want to be in collegetown, an eh studio will run you around $700/month. I'm an undergad now and know plenty of people paying over $1k a month at places like 312 and Eddy Gate. If you get outside of collegetown though, prices can drop of dramatically, from what I here. The convenience is really worth the $$, IMO, though, especially in the winter.

From what we have looked at a comparable place will cost you $600-$700 in St Louis versus $1000-1300 in Collegetown. That is pratically what you pay in Boston. I'm sure if you get further away from Collegetown you pay less. But it also seems like places aren't as nice, and you get less for the money. That is just based on internet searching.

Everywhere my sis has lived has been walkable to the law school. Even in the winter. (She has always had roommates though; if you want a studio or your own apartment I suppose it's more... but it's probably not worth it)

I mean, any city can be dirt cheap if you have enough roommates . . .

Your sister also likely has a roommate. I realize a lot of kids do that, but the cost of renting a bedroom somewhere is not indicative of housing costs if what you need is an actual apartment. The availability of a studio/1 br can be quite different from that of random bedrooms for rent in houses/larger apartments filled with kids. As it turns out, reasonably priced studios and 1 bedrooms near campus are not too easy to come by in Ithaca. They do exist, however.

I looked on craigslist and there seemed to be quite a few very reasonably priced apartments that were a short drive away. Sure, everything in Collegetown, right by the campus is a lot. But I wouldn't mind a 5 or 10 minute drive if it can save me hundreds every month.

You should be aware, if you intend to drive, that parking in Ithaca and at Cornell is absolutely horrendous--both expensive and a pain in the ass.

I have found bus service to be very convenient. Have a 3 Bedroom house 3 miles from campus for > 1k/mo. I drive 5 minutes and have a 12 minute bus ride.

Hmm, then I guess I will look for housing close to wherever the bus lines run.

Um, ok. Not sure how relevant that is. Does she actually rent a 1br for $400/mo? .

That's not too difficult. And as a 1L, you won't need to pay for the bus.

No, but the way you said "plenty of kids" in a lovely condescending tone I thought that you thought she was an undergrad. If you save $$$$ by having roommates, what's the big deal? I'd rather pay $350/month with roommates than $1k-ish without. It seems like a waste of money.
