I could use some guidance on places to live, if you have time. I currently live in Buffalo, NY- Elmwood Village area- lots of art galleries/boutiques/restaurants/bars within walking distance... I'd like an area with a similar feel in Pittsburgh if possible. I currently pay $880/mo for a 3 bedroom, all included. Any chance I could find a similar type of area in that price range in Pittsburgh?
Also, I've been awarded a scholarship with a 3.0 GPA stipulation- how hard is that to keep? I've read about other schools that put all scholarship students in the same section so that many lose their scholarship after their first year... or that at some schools the way the grades are curved make it difficult to keep the required GPA... I honestly don't quite understand how it all works, so any insight on that would be awesome as well. Thanks!
