School COL is the basis for private loans. Schools up it so that you can take more out if something happens that you need. While self control may say otherwise, it's better to have the cap space and not use it than it is to provide an accurate average that may make funding school or some other emergency impossible for some students

You got a pen? I think I got a lanyard (not a great one).

In all honesty I hope the best freebie I get is from a school I don't attend. I don't want to think my tuition next year is going to crazy give aways to prospective students

Like the king of Bhutan, maybe.

I live in Manhattan too. And have two roommates. And spend $1,800 on rent and utilities alone.

LOLOL King of Bhutan. Dead.

I live with a roommate in UES (not the good part, closer to 1st Ave).

Rent: $1150 + utilites ($50ish)
Travel: Monthly metrocard supplied by work. I live right next to the new Q line that opened up so I literally never have to pay for cabs anymore.
Food: $60/week on groceries. I hardly ever eat out or go out on Weekdays.

That leaves almost $350-$400 per month on going out on weekends and I usually stick to Lower East Side/Alphabet City so that extra $400 lets me live extremely comfortably haha

You're basically committed there, though right? I still have a D&D 4-sided die roll to pick where I'm going

You live with a roommate in a one bedroom? Walk up? No doorman?
Just FYI the metrocard is worth $116.50 a month. I posted it in a different thread today.

Yup! Sweet deal because the living room is massive, so we walled off half of it to make a second room
