Well, I'm going to be living at Archstone....so I must be out of control. JUST KIDDING. Don't worry, I didn't take offense to anything you said. Rent is expensive, there is no two ways about it. I'm getting a two bedroom apt and the total rent is appx $1800, plus $45 per month for a garage (optional). It's worth it to me because I feel safe there, and I like that it is new/clean, and there's also a great pool and fitness room. Not to mention the great location--close to everything. AZWildcat, your house (apartment?) looks gorgeous though. I grew up in a house close to the beach and it was fabulous. Have fun there! Hope you can find another law student willing to pay that kind of rent. Did you send in the roommate sheet to USD? That would probably be the easiest way.ps- let me know when the party is, i'll be there... hahaha
3800 seems awfully high for a 2br. This is a 3br 2bath, 2 story penthouse on the ocean that looks almost exactly the same for $3500;http://sandiego.craigslist.org/apa/81454943.html
Haha good post. By the way my name is Dennis, not AZWildcat (stunned I know ). I didn't put my name anywhere on here because you never knew who might be looking in, but now it doesn't matter.I'd assume that you already have a roommate? Who I'm really appealing to is the person who is looking at getting crushed in a one bedroom apartment. According to their website, it'd be ~$1400. $1900 is what I'd want in general, but I was thinking about it more, for a law student I'd split the rent, so $1750. That's $350 more than Archstone, and look at where you're at and what you get. My impression of the high rent apartments was that they were filled with 19 year old party kids, snorting on the weekend at best, spending dad's money. Obviously you didn't see it that way, so I'd be interested to hear why I'm wrong.I'll be filling out the roommate form tonight. It's a condo, takes the second and third (top) stories.
