    SDN Members don't see this ad. (About Ads)
    Pft no way! it's the button after quote in the bottom right hand corner. It's a sheet of paper with quotes haha
    Ah yeah, i realized after you're from AL because of your profile on the side. That's awesome though, never been there, so even just an interview would be a mini vacation!

    As I continue to try to get a preliminary list of schools together, I was thinking about the housing situation at each school. My girlfriend and I are both moving on to grad school at the same time. We are both looking at schools primarily in NYC and the surrounding vicinity. I was then wondering are there any schools that would allow couples to live together? I know NYU offers a few studios for couple occupancy, however I can't seem to find how much a set up like this would cost. It seems that it would be cheaper to live through a school than to try to find an apartment in an OK area on our own. Thanks

    I honestly think this would be something to worry about it down the road after you've been accepted to schools so you can make a decision from there

    We only have two: University of South Alabama and UAB School of Medicine, which is ranked 26th in the nation.

    Are people in your state as crazy about football as we Alabamians are? lol

    Thanks actually found an answer to my own question. Wasn't saying it was a make or break issue just something I was considering in making a list.

    Yeah I go to an acc school and people love football here but obviously not as competitive as the sec. Basketball is pretty big here as well

    Gotcha, didnt mean for my post to sound rude

    There do exists schools that have housing options for at least married couples - not sure if they extend that to non-married couples. Check it out. I would imagine it would be tougher to find that in The City schools, since real estate is so pricey. Indeed, as your stated campus-affiliated housing in The City can be relatively cheap compared to finding a spot on your own

    I wish I could be into college basketball but it does nothing for me. Now Bowl Season starts today and I'll watch any game I can. Anyone else interested in doing a "pick em" just for fun? The first game starts at 2 but after today's 3 games there isn't a game until Tuesday


    EDIT: Well if anyone else is interested, I made a group over at yahoo http://football.fantasysports.yahoo.com/bowl/group/34457 password is "sdn2016". If the link is no good the Group ID# is 34457. Cheers

    I have all of the EK's and the TPR verbal workbook. I mailed in a check for the BR books about a week ago, I just hope that I receive everything by the end of January to starting hitting them.

    HAHA :laugh:

    I'm glad I'm not the only one. I've managed to watch tv all morning and put on my makeup..... I had the intention of getting dressed, but the pjs are too comfortable. At some point today, I'm going to shovel all of the icky snow that has fallen and go to the store. I keep wondering when I'm going to actually start studying!

    Glucagon: that sounds like a fantastic way to spend the break... especially the sleeping part!! :)

    Techmed: I bet you are glad to be done with the MCAT! I wish I could say the same for my semester ending well.... I just had my first bad one. Eh, oh well... it's over now! :oops:

    So how's the weather in other parts of the country? I'm leaving WI on Sunday (if the weather allows me to) and can't wait to escape this snow!!!

    You are right. When I made my sn, I apparently was thinking, "Let's just not be anonymous at all." lol. I went there for my first year. I am beyond excited to be driving back to Colorado in a couple days. The weather has been decent according to my sister. :cool: Of course when I get there, you know it'll snow!

    Good call with Scrubs.

    The weather in Chicago has been great. I love this time of year...it kinda verifies that I need to live in the midwest/east coast cause you get the best of both worlds!

    I'm also from Chicago! I love this weather....there's something awesome about blanket of snow everywhere. Though the below freezing weather isn't usually that great. I prefer the winter months anyway...my philosophy is that in the winter, you can keep adding layers until you're warm, but in the summer, there's only so much you can take off :laugh:

    I need to make a trip downtown sometime soon....

    Haha I like your philosophy :D and I haven't been downtown in months...it sucks I don't get to enjoy it everyday. Hopefully med school in the city will help with that!

    Oh man, I've never seen Chicago in the winter, but I really love white Christmases and am applying to three schools in the area. I love the big city + midwestern-ness of the city.

    Happy Holidays everyone!:)

    Hello everyone! :hello:

    I've been reading those threads since last year when the Class of 2014 was applying. Can't stop now:oops:.

    It was incredibly rainy for the past week, but luckily for me, I like the rain. The rain has passed now and it is all sunny. :)

    Happy holidays everyone. I am prepping to cook a monster amount of food tomorrow. :D

    Oh man I can't wait to go to med school in the city :xf:Lets hope it works out....my dream school for FOREVER has been Northwestern...but look at the reality of the situation that might not happen haha. Regardless, all the schools in the city are amazing. Who knows Glucagon, we might be classmates in near future! :) And I haven't been downtown in forever, owing to the fact that I go to school out of state :(

    And Kansaskid, you definitely need to make a trip to Chicago during winter. It is possibly the most amazing place ever (if you can handle the cold, that is)!

    Wow, this thread is seeing no action lol!!! Happy New Year everyone!! :)

    Also, I'm currently in Colorado Springs where it snowed yesterday (hasn't been snowing here much), and this is a video of people thinking they can make it up an icy hill. Everyone makes fun of me for driving a RWD car, but at least I know where I can and can't drive. These people just kept trying even though all of the other cars couldn't make it. If you've seen the video.. my bad lol. Oh how I've missed living in CO. Here's the link since I have no idea how to put the video thing on here ;)

    RWD in snow is the most fun thing in the world. Starting off at stop lights, uphill, in snow/ice proves skills.

    Get it as soon as you can and stick it on Interfolio. Every year I see people get jacked by someone not writing a letter in time. They are busy and things come up for them.

    I had 5 letters and my 6th letter writer, after a phone call telling me she would upload it that night, just disappeared off the face of the planet. She was an employer and it wasn't that big of a deal, but had it been a letter I really needed...I would have been screwed.
