Will the dorms be available to transfer students? After spending a day calling friends/checking Craigslist, I kinda feel dorm might be the hassle-free way to do my housing.kaiser wrote:InSport wrote:I might be looking for a roommate if I get in. I'm planning on staying in Jersey City, though.

Smart choice staying in Jersey City. Super convenient to NYU and rent is about half as much. I sort of like getting out of the craziness of the city at the end of the day, but always having the ability to get back within just a few minutes.
Law dorms are available to transfer students and it's probably the most hassle free route. But def do some Craigslist searching. Within one day of looking, I set up 3 appointments, found some great places, and ended up choosing the place I currently live in. Make sure to look into renting out a room in a larger apartment. That will give you the best savings. I found a bunch of options between 800-1000 that are very close to the grove and Newport path stations.
I thought I was good at doing the screening and kick out the scam. I sent out prob 20 emails yesterday, got prob 5 replies, and all of them claim that they live in another country right now but can schedule room viewing and looking for security deposit.
