I think it's roughly $17K/yr for 2009-2010
uGH! You in-stater's are so lucky.
Also--know where you're living yet? I don't know too much about Philly so any suggestions would be appreciated! I'm also considering getting a roommate. Anyone know if the Temple roommate list is a good option?
I know - I changed my residency from NJ to PA last year just on the hopes I would get into Temple.
I live in the burbs, but here's a quick breakdown of some of the city areas - I'm sure other Phillies will disagree with me on some of these
Rittenhouse - expensive, very nice
Old City - not as expensive, lots of bars and near the waterfront
UPenn/Drexel area - lots of other students in these areas but getting to Temple can be a hassle from here
South Street - personally my favorite area, lots of bars, shops, and restaurants - but can get shady on weekend nights due to the riffraff
South Philly - you can find some really great deals on apartments, more of a neighborhood feel
Northeast - not popular with people that aren't from Philly, some shady areas
West Philly (eg - higher than 45th st)/North Philly - No. Just no.
I'm sure I'm forgetting some areas, anyone else fee free to comment!
