Plus, tracking down and buying furniture would be a pain and additional cost of living in an apt.
Right, but if you're in Chicago for 3 years you may end up buying furniture your 2nd or 3rd year anyway. At which point, if you bought it the 1st year and held on to it for 3 years you would derive more utility than only possessing it for 1 or 2 years.
And on that note, I'm going to go crawl away and study my economics.
although the resell value of the furniture would be higher if I only use it for a year or two before I graduate :-p
