I'm getting excited. Time is passing so quickly, before you know it, it'll be August already. Ashleydy10- what are the price ranges for the apartments that you've been considering?
Well, given I only had one day there, I only got to see two apt complexes. I did however, meet a bunch of students at a party on Friday night where I discussed living situations. The Cottages is apparently pricey. For me, coming from south florida, a one bedroom under 1000 in a good area is a gem. For BR, its expensive as hell. The Cottages 1bdrm/1bath freestanding cottage, with ALL utilities included, furnished, WITH my monthly pet fee, was at $1,200.00 a month. I was excited, thinking that was cheap. After I spoke with people at the party, they all told me that was very expensive for BR and that they paid anywhere from 300-700 a month for everything. They all had roommates though, which makes things cheaper. They also didnt live in a gated community with security, etc. So it is my understanding that you get what you pay for. I would think that you can go the cheap way and pay approximately 500/month.. or you can go with the amenities and security for about 1000/month. I heard so many roommate horror stories that I have pretty much decided living on my own is a good idea for the first year. Once we all get to know each other, we will have a better idea as to who we can live with. If i can afford it, ill live alone at the cottages.
I am trying to make it out there for the scholarship dinner and to check out a few more places. Crossing my fingers that i can. I heard great rumors about it. I wont share, bc i dont want to ruin the surprise.. but someone blew most of it for me lol.
