One great thing about Penn - I was poking around craigslist last night, just to see what sort of stuff was out there in terms of housing and I was BLOWN AWAY by the prices!! Maybe I am just used to Boston's real estate prices, but the places I found on craigslist were unbelievably cheap. i mean there was some stuff available for less than $300 a month, and it didn't look ready to be condemned or anything. for $500 you can really live it up. (with a roommate, of course). if you want to live alone, you can get a decent place for the price i'm paying to live with 3 people in Boston. I'm psyched.
