Also has anyone been looking into apartments and found somewhat decent places for less than the $1,300ish you can do through the school?


For that price, you're probably going to have to look pretty far-ish from campus. I've found a few one bedrooms in the West Village for 2200/month-ish, but since I'm sharing this with my SO it will work out cheaper than the 1300 NYU asks for. (Plus, I'd really prefer not to be living in a dorm again)

I'm pretty sure I haven't seen anything about Furman invites yet, but I haven't been following the thread too closely. No one has received one yet, right?

I live on the UES and pay $1,100 a month. I'm not right next to campus but it only takes about 20 minutes to get there from my door. If you have roommates to live with its definitely reasonable to get something for cheaper than NYU housing, and I agree with you about not living in a dorm. The worst part is finding a place, brokers are awful/fees are high. Feel free to PM me if you have any more questions!

This. Also, you would probably have to come back and spend a weekend just to look at places, and this would probably have to be done in mid-July in order to have something ready for August.

NYC house hunting is really the worst.

Hah this is really going to be a different world for me but I'm really excited about it. I'm currently in a 2000 sq ft house that costs us $1800 split four ways. I can't imagine going back to a dorm either. Do the majority of younger 1Ls live in the dorms or is it pretty common to go off campus (if you can call it a campus)?

My girlfriend has another year left of nursing school too, otherwise this process would be a lot easier.

According to the literature 2/3 of 1Ls stay in housing.

I'm still trying to figure out what the heck I'm going to do. A part of me wants that awesome convenience of living near/across from school. The other part is really really cheap.

For those more knowledgeable than I: when is the best time to start looking/talking to the school about housing? And when are you "late"? I know others are wondering this as well.

I believe the deadline for "preferred" housing applications is May 15. After that it's on an as space becomes available basis. I bet so long as you're in by May you'll be set.

Correct me if I'm wrong, of course. I just went through my pizza box again tonight as NYU is looking more and more like it's going to be where I spend my next three years.

I think you might be right. I looked through the pictures of the dorms on the ASW, and they SCREAM false advertisement lol. Am I generally correct on this?

Yes, this is correct. As long as you submit your application before the deadline, you'll get something. Spoke to my friend at NYU about this.

Pretty sure its March 29-30. Don't want you to buy the wrong plane tickets lol


If that's the case I'll be meeting you there FryBread!


Yes 29-30. Keyboard problem :P.

Haven't been admitted to Columbia but I booked the flight under the assumption that I might be, just in case. Down to grab booze with anyone who ends up in the same awkward position of nothing to do Wednesday night :lol:

FryBread, hit me up if you end up being alone and abandoned in NYC for the weekend. I'd hate to see you sleep in subway stations :D

Speaking of people coming down this weekend. Anyone down to hang out on Saturday? I'm not going home until Sunday and I've got the evening completely free. Might be premature since I'm assuming we'll all make enough acquaintances on Thursday and Friday, but figured I'd put it out there.

This was included in the email I got, but it said the whole list of panelists will be finalized and then sent out. Maybe they haven't confirmed the interviewers for Oakland yet?

+1 to being in the awkward Wednesday night group. Though I'll have family in the city so I'll probably just spend the evening with them.
