Find the actual issue. Each question has one or two things going on really deep down. If you figure those out you are golden. If you do a superficial analysis of all the issues, you are boned.

thanks! also, a bunch of my classmates have been saying that he manipulates the curve / grades really weird or something? any truth to that?

All the professors manipulate the curve. Some give out lots of high grades, which means they have to give out a lot of really low grades. Others don't like giving out low grades, so 90% of the class gets a 3.1-3.4 and only 1 or 2 grades higher. Haagen is the latter kind. Only 1 or 2 people will get an above median grade.

yeah that's what everyone has been saying. thanks!

Arium!

if I'm looking for something a bit more upscale, would I have to venture out a bit closer to SouthPoint?

No, there is the lofts at lakeview, Berkshire 9th street, and a few others.

But these are gonna be pricier than what you can get with a house. I have a house within walking distance to campus for 2k that is 4 bedrooms and over an acre of land. A 2 bedroom is that price at some of these apartment complexes. A few friends have 2bed 2bath houses for 1k a month in nice areas.

The real truth is getting a house.

Yeah, anything fancier than Arium is easily $1k+ unless further out. Maybe Garett West but not 100% sure? Lofts is awesome but was almost 2k last year.

Agreed that a house is awesome value, especially with roomies.

Yeah, agreed. I want to add those prices for the houses in my last post is the total cost for the whole place, then divide it up amongst a couple roommates and it is ridiculously cheap for a dope house. I lived my first year at one of the typical apartment complexes and hated it compared to my current house.

yeah my thing is I don't want roommates. every roommate I've ever had has been annoyingly dirty and I just don't want to deal with that again (especially since I"m somewhat of a neat freak). I found apartments that are closer to SouthPoint for 850-950 for a 1BR so I'll check those out. thanks all!
