It is great that somebody started a Duke Med 2013 thread; I had been searching for one all day yesterday. I am curious as to what typical housing arrangements the students make. From my interview at Baylor, I discovered that many students take leases on condos/houses. I am wondering if the same strategy could be efficiently applied in Durham. Perhaps there is not as strong of a buyers' market for condos/homes as in the Houston medical area? I don't want to have difficulties selling the home four years from now. If someone knows, please inform me. I am not so much interested in renting an apartment because, to me, it is wasted money.
Also, is it true we get "free" laptops? I do understand that these are subsidized with money from our tuition payments. The idea of getting a "free" laptop is kind of amusing though... and exciting!
