They do allow windows vista. They told me some others have got it to work, however it is not supported in any way. Macs with windows running on them are not allowed at all during exams.

Manayunk near main street is a bit rough, but further away I think it is easier. Philly has parking permits which anyone with a utility bill can get for 35$, they are needed in many locations. In theory they help keep parking problems down. Not sure this really works though. Manayunk is one of these, as is East Falls and almost all of center and south philly.
As for south Philly, I would try to stay as close to the river as possible, though other areas are nice. Its a block to block thing, so I would encourage seeing the place before you commit. I would also recommend staying as far north as possible, though I am sure there are areas in the south that are alright. Close to south street parking will be difficult, and on south street it will be near impossible without paying for a spot.
Let me know if you have any more questions.
Be aware that some areas "just outside" of University city are quite sketchy... though you can get big houses... I got a place for less than 100k that was 1500 sq ft... I would highly recommend you see it before you buy it though...
If anyone has specific questions about locations I might be able to answer them.
Im 26... thats not too old... there are a ton of local bars that are quite fun. Though Philly's specialty is really its BYO restaurants... tiny houses converted into restaurants without liquor licenses. My fiance knows them better than I. Regardless, Philly is a great town.
I'm another Temple person... I'm entering the evening division though, any others out there? Ive seen the one other so far (Gator). Ive been around Philly for awhile... finishing up an MS at another local university...
As far as living places... I am biased toward east falls, where I live. Its closer than Manayunk, and inside the 1st public transportation zone. So even though it is only 1 stop on the train before manayunk its considerably cheaper. Houses are decent, and right near the train station! Almost every northbound train stops at Temple, so its pretty easy to get there. However, east falls has all the same types of houses as manayunk and a lot less hype.
I can try to answer any other questions on places to live. University City isn't bad, but its a bit pricey thanks to all the Penn kids. I would definately stay away from Fishtown... Center city isn't bad to buy a place, but its quite expensive unless you go south...
