I'm not used to having a roommate, but I hope that no GULC student would need Judge Judy to resolve their crazy roommate problems. The single options take up a huge chunk of the monthly budget and I imagine any room in Gewirz would be used primarily for relaxing and sleeping.
I don't even want to think of studying in my home - I have enough trouble battling insomnia as is.
Some of my main reasons for not living at Gewirz is that most people will be studying in their rooms and 2 roommates will in fact be worse than one. People have different levels of noise, cleanliness, and schedules. I know it will be more expensive for me to live alone off campus but I'm hoping that will translate into better grades. People will party in their rooms, and depending on who they are, you might have issues. I don't know. If you're in for savings, it might make sense, but only if you're sure it won't affect your studies.
Living with a roommate is hard. Even a seemingly idyllic situation can turn sour.
I'm personally hoping to meet someone really amazing 1L and move in with them for 2 and 3 and live happily ever after in lurve. Yeah, delusional, I know.
