I am going to be SURE to live in graduate housing. None of this ugrad stuff. There are some undergrads downstairs at my current place, and I keep thinking of them as "kids" (even though there's a good chance that they're at least as old as me). They're always loud, or having people over, or whatnot. No, sireee ...

This sounds so superficial..but I'm worried about closet space and warm water... :'(

I'm also worried about closet space, but more worried about having no kitchen, and having to share a bathroom with 30 other people again...  You relaly can't go back to that sort of thing when you've been out of school for a while.

This is why I refuse to live in student housing, especially at Harvard. Gropius is borderline offensive! how long have you been out of school?

I HATED not having a kitchen during most of my ugrad. I use cooking as a stress-reliever.

I personally refuse to have roommates.  I study best at home, and I hate noise.  I don't want to live by any frat houses or loud UG apartments either, because of my hatred of loud obnoxious and unnecessary noise (unless I'm making it of course  ;)). I also must have a kitchen, bathroom, and of course, a living room; you can't have people coming over to visit and just sitting on your bed... gross.

Ummmmmm if you come to NYC, then be prepared to be shelling out AT LEAST $1000+ a month for all these things you must have, and that's not even in Manhattan.........

oh, and the $1000 is probably for an apt the size of your current bedroom
