I have seen that Hofstra has begun sending out acceptances, so I'd thought I'd offer to answer any questions anyone had regarding both school and social life. Just post them on this board and I will respond as soon as possible. Good luck to everyone with their applicationsBryan
Completely unrelated to the whole SCHOOL part...but do you need a car there? I'm absolutely unfamiliar with the area. Is there public transportation that links up with NYC or Long Island itself? If I go somewhere other than Ole Miss I don't want to bring a car. I f'in hate driving,can't wait to get rid of my car, and if I live anywhere near a big city will do so. This may be a stupid question but thanks a million if you answer it.
To Daned, The long island housing situation is not like normal universities. there is on campus housing, and one specifically for grad/law students, but in my opinion it is over priced and institutional. I found my apt on the hofstra off-campus housing website. http://www.hofstra.edu/StudentAffairs/Commuting/commute_offcampus.html. You can also check out craiglist. Mainly, the options, a) I have a studio apt in a house that has been converted into different apts, b) renting out a room in a house, 2) move in with someone looking for a roomate, 3) rental apt which are pretty expensive 4) or finding a group of people to live with and renting a house. Overall, I'm happy where I chose to live. Not far from school and real close to the railroad to go into the city. Its also in a safe, family neighborhood. To bounders,One of my professors last semester falls into the 70/80 category, and one this semester I think falls into the other category. The rest are in the middle age range, with a couple being on the younger side. And I would add, I happen to like the professors that happen to fall into the 2 categories. But to give a broader perspective, you will probably not like all your professors, but you should be able to deal with all different kinds of teachers and adjust to the professors that you like and don't like. Hope that helps clarify your two questions
