    I think housing is extra.
    Boston is an expensive place to live.
    You may be thinking another 15k to 20k a year for room and board.

    Housing is NOT included.... yeah, Boston is very expensive...

    You would be best to find roommates to split a room.. get the cost down to 600s-900s.

    By the way, I am also looking for a roommate in Boston.

    So,
    I will be better off if I don't apply there. Cause I can just apply to NYU 36K-40 K including housing.
    What do you guys think?

    Sorry Awuah.....NYU is about 70K/ year as well....Tuition figures never include housing. You want the total cost of education (COE) figures that take everything into consideration including tuition, housing, insurance, food, entertainment, intstruments, books, blah blah blah. Both BU and NYU are at about 70K COE/year.

    goodness gracious, y'all should do some in depth researching!

    both BU and NYU indeed do cost about 70K each year total, NYU slightly more, and that should include living expenses. NYU should be around 75 grand.



    Living expenses in Boston can be pricey, but if you look around, it is better than NYC, it also depends on your personal needs and what luxuries you want, or want to live without.

    Be glad that tuition doesn't show signs of increasing like other schools...

    if they do increase, it's rather a small increase, from what i hear but dont quote me on that...
