Yeah, definitely. When I saw how much apartments cost in Philly, I was impressed. I'm not going to be getting any financial aid (my parents are rich, but haven't paid for college...), and one of my friends is at Columbia and is starving on what he can get out of loans. So, I'll just save up and hopefully have more money at hand.
I can't really save up a lot before school, but I think that, if I can either get a studio or share an apartment with a roommate, I can save some money there. Though I would rather pay more and be close to campus.
Are you definitely going, puppins?
