    Hey Guys,

    I'm planning to attend UPenn and I just wanted to meet some of my classmates next year. What are you guys deciding about housing? Hope to hear from you guys.

    I'll be at Penn too!! Good decision!! I'm still not positive on teh housing situation...i'm leaning towards living in the grad towers because i don't have the time to search for an apartment...and im not really familiar with the area to know exactly where the good places are to live. A lot of ppl have posted negative info on the dental hosue which is why im not gonna live there...

    Hi Jaclyn,

    Yeah, I haven't heard any good things about the Dental House either. I'm looking to stay in the Grad Towers, but the rooms are extremely small. When are you planning on heading down to Penn? Well, if you want to, feel free to email me at [email protected] Best of luck and looking forward to meeting you next year.

    Hey Alan,

    I'll be starting Penn in the fall too. I've also decided on the grad towers. I sent in the application and am waiting to hear about my placement. Are the rooms intolerably small?

    Hey Sahar,

    I pretty sure that the rooms at Sansom Place is small. You can check the Penn website for a floor plan. As far as I can remember, the size of each bedroom is about 10 X 10, so there isn't that much space for anything else. Did you pick the 2 bdrm or 1 bdrm? Well, looking forward to meeting you.

    Hi Alan,

    Since I can't go out to Philly to find a place I guess I'll have to settle fo the small rooms. I'm sure it'll be fine. I think my first choice was the 2 bdrm and then the single. The 1 bdrm was a little too expensive. I called thehousing office yesterday to see if they have even received my application and I was told they can't say anything until June 1. I'm curious to see which I get and if I get the double who my roommate will be.

    So, which did you choose?

    I look forward to meeting you too,
    Sahar

    Jaclyn,

    Did you ever get my last email?

    I just got back from Philadelphia and managed to secure an apt. while I was there. 39th and Pine St. - approx. 2 blocks from the dental school, so it is really convienent.

    I will be moving there in July. Look forward to meeting some of you.

    39th and pine is a good area. I lived there last year. There are lots of college kids who live on that block and throw parties. You will enjoy living there. Is your landlord UCA or a private person?
