Any recommendations for good, cheap, and close food?

Not a new yorker in any way shape or form, but I was concerned about the food thing, and really surprised by the abundance of cheap food. I found that you could get by really cheaply without even trying to.

I withdrew from Notre Dame, Columbia, Cornell, Berkeley, USC, GW, Duke and Northwestern today. What a cathartic exercise that was.

Man, that is intense. Does it feel good?

The students at asd told us zero chance of getting a studio/1br next year.

This is an interesting read. How do you guys plan to go about deciding what to do with your WLs? I have a group of schools that WLed me that I'd like to consider, but there's definitely not one out of my options that is a must-go school. How much effort is it worth putting into WLs at schools that are similar in quality/rank, etc to the best school you're admitted to?

At the risk of stirring something up, I'm pretty tempted to drop after being hold to WL. The way the thing with the dean shutting off the internet in class went down, combined with chicago's pretty consistent slipping in the rankings makes me think that the administration is kind of out of touch. It's not so much that I think chicago is as bad as it's ranked, but that it consistently ranking low indicates an administration that can't get it together to game things the same as everyone else.

And.......attack.

Is that Eric Posner in your avatar?

Haha, awesome. It's jack keruoac, I think.

Is this aid PDF on the admitted students site or is it being emailed out?

I got an email with a link to the financial aid website.  Where they proceeded to tell me I got nothing in grant aid.  Now seriously considering Georgetown if they give me any money at all.

You like georgetown v. NYU that much? How come?

Thanks for the help on neighborhoods, I really appreciate it. Any advice on where to look for listings? Should I suck it up and do the fee thing?

Ontheroad, what was it about the dorms that bummed you out so much? How would you describe them?

D'agostino (sp?) especially was really tiny and cramped (for something like 1300/mo I think). It just felt really college dormish. Mercer was a bit better, but still had that university housing feel. Location was incredible, obviously.

I was pretty bummed by the dorms that I saw at NYU. What other neighborhoods should I look at if I'd like a bit more space or a bit less rent?
