The Roommate Issue

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?

I would definitely check with the housing office at your school - I know my undergrad institution had a bulletin board of people looking for places, and I'm sure most big schools will have something like this.

Also - I have had great success with craigslist.com - My current roommate found me by the ad I placed there. She is excellent, and I had about 40 people to choose from who responded to my one ad. It's a great resource.

I'm in the same boat, incidentally! Lookin' for a roomie in D.C.! :)
