Thanks Dubs! Does anyone know of any good sites to search for housing besides Craig's list?

In the projected aid package they sent to you (if asked), did any of you get need-based grants?

thank you

No for me, and my expected financial contribution was zero.

I emailed the financial aid office and they said the funds are limited and they try to give the grants to people who haven't gotten any scholarships (I received a non-renewable 10,000 First Year Scholar grant).

She also said the grants are typically no more than 1,800 dollars and are only for the first year.

I received a scholarship from Temple today. 100% of tuition paid for the first year and 50% paid for the 2nd and 3rd years, respectively.

Hehe, well us Californians don't really consider the Bay Area as warm... call us unappreciative I suppose!

But yeah I would, depending on the school and other circumstances (read: $$$); I'd love to go school on the east coast...

Yes, the Bay Area is the "cold" part of California. Trust me, I was raised in socal and went to school in San Francisco. When you move to the east it is a huge change. Snow, the white fluffly stuff, is awful! If you are getting california tuition rates I would stay there. If you are truly interested in going back east, ask temple for more cash!

BTW... housing in philadelphia is about 1/3 of the price of the Bay Area. For the same price I paid for a small room in San Francisco I have a 2 bedroom apartment!
