I have applied to Cardozo and there are many things about the school that are attractive. However, the cost of living in New York is appalling.
I used this salary calculatorhttp://www.homefair.com/homefair/servlet/ActionServlet?pid=199&cid=homefair
To live in Austin for a year, I would need about $30,000 in living expenses. The calculator says I will spend $84,453 in Manhattan!
I would like to live close to whatever school I am attending. How can I bring living costs under control and still live near Cardozo?
