I'm moving to Riverdale in July.  Seems like the commute will be 15-20 min each way.  Hopefully traffic won't be that big a deal.  There's no train that runs to white plains from there, though, so you will need a car - parking is also an issue...

My boyfriend just moved into our place last weekend - we got a 1 BR for $1300/mo, heat included.  There are cheaper places in that area, as well as more pricey - all depends on how much space you need.  Where are you from?

Thanks for the info. Does anyone live in the Bronx? that would seem to be the closest and cheapest place to live to Pace.  How is your experience at Pace?

Sorry, I disagree. The strength of a commitment does not relate to whether you're going to get married or not. Divorce statistics proves me right on this.

Enthusiastically agree. i've been with my SO four over 4 years.  He in med school while i worked, and now me in law school while he in residency.  We have learned (through trial and error) the realities in a seriously committed relationship - as a couple and as motivated, intelligent individuals.  One thing we've learned throughout this process is that for us - for people who both have real, professional and personal - goals, is that you cannot predict what the other will do or be faced with in regards to their career.  Future plans as a couple takes immense planning and coordination/some may say sacrifice.  Getting married at the get-go without realistic understanding of futures 1, 5, or 10 years down the road will not end well...

I have many family members who married while one was in school and the other working...seemingly with the idea that marriage would bridge the gap in their seperate lives.  Now, with children and seperate careers/lifestyles, they are divorced.  Unfortunately, with children.  Where is the benefit in that?

Size of ring, or at what point you are in your relationship with your SO, does not ameliorate the decisions yet to be made unless serious consideration towards both professional interests are identified and worked through.  This is hard.

If you haven't completed / passed your courses, you haven't graduated. Being in a graduation ceremony without having graduated is weird by all means in my eyes.

I agree.  Does anyone know if this has anything to do with NCLB?  AKA increasing graudation rates despite lack of adequate education?  Seems to me that if the states can't dumb the standardized tests up enough, they need to do something to keep their funding.

Although, I think when I graduated (back in the dark ages), they did have all the GED participants who would not finish the requirements until August walk across the stage as well.  I thought it was just to increase the time for graduation in general (as 1/3 of our "class" were GED folk)...

Greetings, I am in part time division at Pace starting in the fall.  No June courses for me either.  I have a place in Stamford, CT where I'll be staying. 

Hi Clare
Whats the commute like from Stamford?  I know a few people who live there and commute to work in Westchester and NYC.  Is there NYC transit there?

sprinkle some crack in it.

ok dumb question.  Is the goal to get these ladies drunk?  doesnt seem like you'd need a whole thread on the "how to's" of that.  Is the goal to get the ladies drunk to take advantage of them?  again, doesn't seem like you'd need a whole thread on that either.  a healthy concern for your own future and morals, well, maybe.
