Things to consider:
Are you disciplined?
Would you wake up and get to the train or leave in time to get to class ON TIME?
I would recommend for those that can't wake up and get to school on time (b/c HUSL has an attendance policy and they will use it! I came uncomfortably close to getting an F before taking the exam - trust me... that was not fun!):
Anywhere around American U
NW DC between 11 and 14th Streets
Anywhere on the red line... no more that three stops
For those with some discipline
Try NE DC near Catholic U
Deeper in NW
Silver Spring (I think this would be my new home.)
NOTE TO ALL: Try and stay off the highways...
I had a Dell... I got rid of it and I will be getting a MAC
If you want to have wireless connectivitiy through out the school make sure your laptop is wireless capable.
I would recommend getting a laptop... it is very convenient.
You can go really cheap... Dell has a great sale going on.
If your laptop does not have wireless it is okay... just make sure you have an ethernet cord.
Even if your laptop has wireless still get an ethernet cord.
Don't over spend!
My Dell was too heavy and because I will be doing a lot! next year I decided I needed something light and powerful.
Make a great buy... think long term... and also think about moving around with the laptop from class to class if you intend to use it to take notes (like I do).
BEFORE YOU START!
SLeep some more....
and then when you get tired sleep some more again....
You will need it...
