Hey, I was reading the pre-dent forum and got this price ranges for apartments around Nova:
1 bedroom ~ $800- $1200
2 bedroom ~ $1000- $1500
3 bedroom ~ $1100- $1600

What are the price ranges for apts around other opt schools? (i.e. Houston, SCO).
Thanks :cool:

In my experience, $400/month would be a pretty crappy apartment in the Houston area, especially if you plan on living in the vicinity of the school. I think the graduate/professional school apts. they have on campus run ~$700/month for a one bedroom (utilities included though I believe). I'd expect to pay at least in the $500-600 range.

most of my friends in Houston that live near the med center pay 600 to 700 a month for a one bedroom.

In Manhattan -- $1200-$2000/mo for a 1-bedroom. :eek: Some people get 2-bedroom places, divide them up for 3 people, and pay ~$900. Out in the boroughs it's cheaper and the places are bigger (but the commute is longer) -- sharing a huge place might run you $700/mo.

I've been looking in the memphis area on rent.com and some other websites, and most of the 1 bedroom apartments range from $400-$550, the 2 bedroom, $500-$700 and 3 bedroom apartments usually at least $700 and up to $1500. I'm not sure how close these are to the campus but they all seem to be in the downtown or midtown area, which is in the general vicinity.

tuition is actually pretty low at SCO compared to other schools. In state is around 15-16, and out of state is about 18 to 19 thousand.
