You know Catholic is in DC, yes?
Yes. I do. Are you going to live in
the swankiest neighborhooda neighborhood where you won't get stabbed? No.
FTFYI went to undergrad in NYC and managed to have $1400 a month in living expenses. Including rent, food, utilities, transportation etc. And DC is cheaper
And when and where did you live in NYC exactly? That sounds mighty frugal to me for someone supposedly living in Union Sq or the Village, so my guess is you either went to school a few years ago or you lived in the ghetto.
I graduated May 2011. And I didn't live in the Village. I lived a 45 minute ride away on the N and R train in Bay Ridge. Sure it was far, but it was safe and affordable (3 br/1550 a month. So with roommates it was great). ...........You don't get to live in the most convenient place on a student budget. But it can be done.
