So now that I know where I am going, I have begun to look at apartments and different living arrangements. Originally I had planned to buy a home since it seems more economical to do so, but have since changed my mind to avoid the added hassle. I would prefer to have a roommate during my time in medical school, but don't know how to go about finding one. I have been to roommates.com without much luck. It would be nice to live with another medical student (either first or second year). Do medical schools have a roommate service for medical students? It seems like I remember hearing of such a thing but I'm not sure. Another added problem is that the school still does not know which students will actually be attending. Is there any way to get around this and find a roommate?
