Where to live?
« on: April 01, 2007, 03:19:27 AM »
I hear a lot of students live at the brentwood apartments.  Studios go for about $500.

I'm willing to live in a complete sh|t-hole to save some bucks.  What are my best options?  I'll probably try to craigslist a non-psycho roommate.

Great house for graduate students, particularly law. 

Come live in this large four bedroom house in the safe, fun and quiet Lake Nokomis neighborhood, only ten minutes from downtown and the Mall of America. The other housemates are graduate students in their early-mid twenties.  Fun house and good people.
