    Sister works for a major music label so we get them for free...but it is nothing classic, more Ariana Grande, Taylor Swift type vinyls.

    THAT'S AWESOME. There are still some good music coming out of major music labels if you look hard enough. I would love to get free vinyl just to hear what's out there and not necessarily for collecting.

    Hit up any outlets right after sales are over! I don't really shop nor enjoy shopping but I typically pick up a bunch of name brand button downs, pants etc at awesome prices at outlet malls after July 4th sales and events like that

    I shop around on ebay. Brooks brothers is the store i would go to if i died and heaven was a store, you can get $500 pieces for 40-70 bucks used. I rather buy used clothing made from superior materials than decent clothing brand new. But im not allowed to buy any more clothing until medical school starts because I am a shopaholic/clothing fanatic

    How far apart will y'all be?

    I'm by no means an expert because I just started an LDR with my SO of 4 years back in July when he started grad school (3 hours driving distance). The things that have worked best for us so far are regular phone calls/Skype calls to talk about each others days or to just sit on the cam together doing our own things. Also Rabbit has been great for us to watch Netflix or basketball games together. We make an effort to see each other at least once a month and plan out our trips several weeks in advance, so we have a date to look forward to. It's not ideal obviously, but it's been working pretty well so far!

    That's encouraging!! Thanks! :)

    It sort of depends on what school I choose (AHHH I NEED TO CHOOSE), but not in driving distance (~9 hours). I think it's like a 1.5-2 hour flight though.

    Been in a LDR for 3+ years. Feel free to PM me with more specific information. Nightly phone calls, Skype dates on the weekends. Texting. COMMUNICATION IS EVERYTHING. Making an effort to see each other (even when expensive). Lots of positive advice and reminders that you love them. Several late night tearful phone calls. My favorite was face timing to watch a show on netflix together! Felt almost normal.

    According to gonnif, your friend gets 5 extra days to respond after which it is up to the schools how they decide to treat said situation. But tell your friend to withdraw by the 30th, too many people have waited a long time to join this thread.

    Did you change your avatar? To shi la buff?

    As for 5 people in one house, I guess it could work. Idk how you study best but if you'll be mostly in the house, then make sure you have personal space.

    Do you know the other people? Are they chill? Loud? Trustworthy?

    Personally, that would be a no-go. I need a place to escape to, especially when stressed, and a room in a house with 4 other people does not sound like a sanctuary.

    I went to look around the house and got a little tour from one of the current resident students. They all seem cool and the house has a lot of space so I don't think personal space will be an issue. All of the people who stayed there apparently have committed all 4 years because they liked it so much.

    Also, I feel super lazy about finding roommates for a 2BR or 3BR apt. I might consider another place but our Facebook page hasn't had much activity
