I tried to PM you, but it wouldn't work. I just wanted to say thanks for telling me about residential life at SUNY Downstate. It was very helpful, although a little scary to find out that the dorms cost about $700-$800!!!! Can you get a single your first year there? I doubt I would commute - it would take me about an hour and a half to get there each yway - without bad traffic Have a great holiday!
