Would govt work experience in the field I want to go into be considered an "average" soft? below average?


Very difficult to judge softs (so take everything I say with a grain of salt). My understanding: If your work experience was for multiple years with lots of responsibilities then perhaps above average. If you just took an internship for a short while, then it might be safe to assume that you are average (as most people have likely taken short term internships etc.).

I wish I could check it out, but they didn't consider west coast people with full time jobs when setting up the time :lol: . Hopefully it will make it to youtube shortly after.

As for the attractiveness of the student body; seeing as the student body is over 1600 students, I think you'll find someone. :wink:

I can work on the bar.

For some reason I thought Gropius would be much less dorm-like than it is, but that looks exactly like where a lot of my friends spent freshman year.

My undergrad dorm looked better than this. Give me Stanford's Munger any day over this crap. With all the money Harvard has I am deeply disturbed.

As someone who lives in Cambridge, living in those dorms would be a silly decision. There is a lot of affordable housing in the area.

I think Good Will Hunting covered that already as seen here when Batman gets in trouble while hitting on girls at the bah.

Gropius is very much the affordable housing option. The price range is $750-$850/month for the bulk of the rooms, with all utilities (and internet) included. Compared to the $1500-$2000 rent for a 1BR or studio off campus, it can add up fast.

As someone who lives in those dorms and quite likes it, I disagree about its silliness! Off-campus housing definitely makes sense if you are married/seriously committed or you have a group of people who you know you will love for roomates. Personally I have neither of those, and I very much enjoy not having a 20 minute walk to get to campus. Nothing around here would net me personally the same value as what I'm getting in Gropius.

If both Gropius and off-campus housing sound daunting, Hastings might be a good intermediate.

Party starts 9/15. The wait is killing me. (Which will, of course, be followed by much more waiting.)
