Although it certainly depends on the program, in many grad programs it is easier to get a higher gpa than it in in undergrad, so they may not it as seriously.

Many cafes and public spaces in Israel are wireless...You don't need to enter any information, you just have your computer find the signal and you are set. Some of them ask you to click on a link to accept their terms/conditions, but this is not universal.
I remember thinking this when I was in Finland. I spent some time with the jewish community there, and at some point one of the members mentioned that another of the members wife was Finnish. I thought, aren't the all finnish? It turns out being a citizen of Finland, even being a leader of the conservative faction in the parliament as one of them was, or having lived there for decades upon decades, does not make you a Finn...it's the same through much of Europe.

It's not that bad - I live on Claremont and when I had a car I could usually find a space on my block, even during the academic year.

I can't speak to the schools, but I live in Morningside Heights. I love the neighborhood. I live on a side street, right across from a very pleasant park. On the whole the neighborhood is quiet (but not overly so), has a decent selection of restaurants and shops, and is a short walk to the UWS proper or a quick subway ride downtown on the 1. I rent a pre-war for 1350.

1350 for a 1BR in Manhattan. I've been in the same place for three years.
