Why do financial aid offices often drastically underestimate room/board expenses - especially when it comes to schools in large metropolitan areas.
For example - GWU says it's estimated room/board is something like 12,500. I'm sorry, but unless you are willing to live rather far from the school and/or in a run down apartment in a bad neighborhood, 12,500 is likely to be just enough to cover RENT in DC, and even NoVa/Maryland burbs. Then comes food, utilities, etc...

Journeyman... why the contradictory advice (between this post and the last)?!?!
