The only reason I held out that long was that my boyfriend/friends drove me everywhere my senior year of high school (not proud but that's what I did) and then I went to a college that didn't let freshmen keep cars on campus anyway. When I could take a car up for sophomore year, that's what got me to learn.

I never understood why some colleges don't let freshman do that. Is it like a parking space issue with upper-classmen or something?

If my school allowed freshman to have cars on campus all hell would break loose.

Both space and ideology - I went to a little residential school in the middle of nowhere where bonding and creating campus community (and extracurriculars) was a big thing. They wanted people to stick around, especially on the weekends. You had to live on campus until senior year and you had to have a meal plan, so you didn't have to go anywhere (and you could walk downtown for necessities).

Why though?

My school allows anyone to have a car and I don't see any problems here

But you don't know that you'll have to rely on IBR/PAYE until you don't get the salary you want. So by the time you know if you have to rely on it, you won't have a choice.

Sorry should've clarified. Parking. Parking spots are basically gold to students + professors. There just isn't enough room for everyone

I gave him the math last page. I think he knows (hopefully)

RE: Driving, I've lived in CT for all my life and if I want to get anywhere besides the gym down the street from my house, I need to take the highway. I suspect you'll have the same problem when it comes to summer internships. CT has a transit system (those sad buses), but it is pretty trash.

Re:sty

I see, that's fair.

My school gives people parking depending on their schedule so that way they reduce that pressure of not having parking on campus. But they let anyone, even freshman get a chance at getting a parking pass.

So I guess my school has restrictions too, it's just different

Okay i get driving but theres no way the highway is a pre req to getting around. Thats plain unreasonable! Theres a large percentage of even drivers who cant di the highway, stop trying to scare me now and be serious.

It's not a prereq for say, going to the doctor's or getting groceries, but it is often a prerequisite for going to shopping centers that have any useful store (best buy, barnes and nobles, etc) and most importantly is a prereq for getting to work.

Yeah that and I walked(quinnipac also has a limited shuttle service). I know it will be more necessary in CT but I'm trying to put it out as long as possible because it's going to be really tough for me to do. Going to try to dedicate my summer to this.


Have you explained elsewhere why driving is so hard for you to learn how to do?


Im going to be honest i find the idea that everyone is able to drive super offensive. So basically if you cant do it in 90% of the country youre *****. The way people who dont drive has treated always pisses me off. Yes I know Im going to have to drive to get around(or at least try)its reality, but honestly this reality is really disturbing and the fact not one other people seems even close to coming to the the conclusion makes me realize what a bubble New yorkers are in(which is part of the reason im leaving). Damm transplantings fucking hard. Cavaliers probably here somewhere shaking his head that driving effects my decision more than 100k of high interest debt!

What? No one here is saying everyone can drive. They are saying in order to function outside of a public transit system, you should be able to drive in order to be independent. Could my sister get around by asking me for rides? Certainly. That doesn't mean her life didn't become x10 easier once she got her license. I don't drive in Boston, but I am able to get everywhere I need. Why is this? Because of a (semi)functional, expansive public transit system that makes my car-free life ez pz lemon-squeezy.

Everything I need is on the other side of a river that only can be crossed via highway or a one hour detour upstate. I think this is why some people are saying to take time off and get a job- to get a picture of what your actual life will be like in CT.

Dude, I got my license last week. I live in LA and have survived on public transportation and Uber for the 23 years of my life. But driving v. relying on public transportation/walking is a world of difference.

Also, I just looked up Storrs and it is a 40-minute drive on the highway from Hartford, which is where I would assume a lot of CT legal internships/externships are located at.

UConn main campus is in Storrs- the law school is in the residential/suburban side of Hartford near West Hartford.

That was one of the main appeals of Hartford that it was a central location with PT.

Why are people lecturing Ferris on the merits of driving? If he doesn't want to drive, that's his call. This thread has become too paternalistic for my liking.
