D'ag or Mercer?

I've heard that D'ag is the place to be to meet people, but Mercer is nicer. I didn't get a chance to visit at the ASW. Is D'ag liveable? Is it quiet?

I would not live in Dag. Too close, small, and gave me a weird vibe. Liked Merc WAY more. YMMV

One of my friends had a 100lb mastiff her senior year at NYU, so you're not the only one. And that dog run is pretty great... There's also a couple of good ones over by the river, between school and Battery Park.

anybody know what our chances of actually getting into d'ag or mercer are? in other words, do they fill up and some people get bumped out even if they applied, and have to find their own off campus housing?

also is there a deadline/priority deadline for the housing app?

I wish on-campus housing wasn't so ridiculously expensive. Are a lot of you thinking about living on-campus?

The LES. I had a friend with a big dog who lived in Battery Park City, and another who lived in I think 99 Gold (in the FiDi), so it is definitely doable if you want to stay in Manhattan. However, a lot of people with pets chose to move out to Bklyn, either near Prospect Park or by the water.

Funny because LES is where I was looking, glad to know that is a doable neighbourhood with a reasonable sized dog.

Definitely doable, I knew three or four people on my street alone on the LES who had dogs.

At least your debt will be minimal! If any of us strike out at OCI, it's going to be a tough uphill battle. #motivationtogrind.

I think it started working about 10 days after I deposited. I did deposit over their spring break though, so it may have taken longer than it would regularly.

Damn Futurama is quality. I can't bring myself to watch the fifth season though. The first episode seemed... off.

Give the season a try, it'll grow on you. Half the reason Futurama is quality is that each consecutive viewing is more hysterical than the last.
