Plus transportation, while relatively inexpensive, can add up pretty quickly. Not that this is an exorbitant cost, but it still should be taken into consideration.
What are utility costs like up there?
I don't have any personal experience but http://www.rent.com/rentals/new-york/ne ... /new-york/ suggests that average utilities cost is $189, plus if you factor cable/internet it would be even higher. For argument's sake, let's say it's $200 per month, which is roughly $800 per semester.
If anyone has a more informed answer, though, please enlighten us.
