Well I'm 100% going to UConn now. I already withdrew from my other schools, and I'm excited to be in CT in August.
I'm planning on living close to the school, within walking distance. But I know NE winters can be tough, and I'd need to get my groceries and on rare occasions hit the town for various amenities. Maybe even check out the nightlife once a month. How's the public transportation in the area? I wouldn't mind taking the bus from place to place, but the prospect of getting frostbite on my way to class in the morning is worrying. How necessary is a sturdy clunker for living in Hartford? Waste of money?
You need a car. Sorry dude, but there it is. I never found the bus system to be too great, and I don't think there are any grocery stores within walking distance of the campus.
Anyone who has more knowledge, please feel free to disagree
Ah darn. That's exactly what I didn't want to hear. -_-
