For everyone with a car: What are you going to do with it, especially if you're planning on living in Gewirz?

I'm from Florida, a place where you absolutely need a car to get around. I can't bring my car to DC. There's limited space in Gewirz for residential parking, plus I believe it's expensive, and there doesn't seem to be any need for a car in DC. I don't want to just leave it at my parents house in FL, where I'd have to make monthly payments as it rots away in the driveway.

But if I sell it, I'll have no way to get around when I come home. That might be OK when I visit for a weekend, but I'd definitely need a car for winter break, and for summer if I get a job/internship down here (or anywhere that you'd need a car, really). Anyone else in a similar predicament?

Last week I traded in my expensive car and got a cheap (yet decent) one. It will sit here in my garage while I am at school. I got a really good trade in price and car price cause I told them why I was trading down.

Don't know if that will work for you.

Thanks for the input Unitas and MSPEast. That's basically what I'm considering doing. I've got a little equity in my car, but I'm not sure if it's enough to buy a decent used car in cash. I'll start looking around.

I've decided to bring my car. I've already submitted my app to park at Gewirz. It was one of the costs I factored in when deciding what kind of housing I wanted. I didn't want to leave it behind!

Where did you find the application to park there? I couldn't find it. How much is it? Lottery? Thanks in advance. I would consider bringing my car if there.

http://www.law.georgetown.edu/reslife/d ... on2010.doc

This link is from the Office of Res Life website. It's pretty high at $805 per semester. They say there is limited parking so it seems like it might be a first come first serve policy as opposed to a lottery. You have to already be assigned a room in Gewirz and the applications are due July 31st.

Thanks for the parking link. I'll just save money and have safeway deliver my food and such. Here is a link to their personal shopping service: http://www.safeway.com/ifl/grocery/Shopping-Help. It isn't as costly as I thought it would be, and for those with roommates multiple orders would get the best deal.

I'll check out safeway when I am up there. I am going up the second weekend in July.

I concur. I did grocery deliver in NYC and it is great. Totally worth it. I also had a car in DC. Totally not worth it. Zip car + Safeway for me!

I'm waiting to hear on a badass studio in Dupont. Holding my breath. There were apparently several people who put in applications the same day.

Finding nice housing in DC is a pain -- culture shock coming from Florida, where vacancies are everywhere.
