I'm going to try to make it to the April admit event! Has anyone started to think about housing? Do most people live on their own or share?

I wish these events were held over the weekend, but I'll most likely get to the April session.

RE: Housing - Not sure what most people do, but I certainly don't have the cash to afford a one bedroom in NYC. I'll definitely be looking to find a roommate(s).

I live in Manhattan but plan to move to West Village for following reasons:
1. #1 train takes you directly to Columbia
2. West Village is awesome place to live. you can walk to Soho, Chinatown, Little Italy. Has tons of great restaurants that are reasonably priced for Manhattan, great bars and nightlife. Its a magical place with cobblestone streets, beautiful brownstones.
3. Neighborhood feel, warm and fuzzy for Manhattan.
4. Yes its expensive to live in West Village, but well worth it. Living near Columbia can be boring

Hi, nice initiative!
did anyone start the kroll verification process?
about housing, I will apply for on campus apartment
maybe is boring living near the school, but definitely less expensive
Hoping to attend to Connect in April

Just booked my flight and hotel for Columbia Connect in February!

I plan on living in West Village or the Upper West Side. I'd like to spend under $1500/mo on rent--hopefully that's not unreasonable?

Living near Columbia can be boring So you're willing to trade the long train ride uptown every morning and every night? I was thinking that the upper west side would be a better spot for the 10-15 min commute and slightly cheaper rent. Plus I could run back to my apt in the middle of the day if I needed to throw on a suit for a meet and greet at night. If you're looking for roommates, how are you going about doing that? Craigslist? _________________ My GMAT Debrief: http://gmatclub.com/forum/my-gmat-experience-540-to-92850.html Every man I meet is my superior in some way.

Is it possible to find one-bedroom apartment + kitchen for sth like 3500-4000 (at most ! ) ? Hey Ivan. I haven't done a ton of diligence yet, but I'd be willing to bet a few dollars that you could find what you're looking for and pay less than$3,500 to $4,000 USD. One thing you may want to consider is that you can easily move up and downtown on the subway in NYC. However, it can be a pain in the ass to go across town. Since Columbia is on the upper west side, you might consider looking at apartments over there. The #1 train runs up and down the west side of Manhattan and will drop you off right at the doorstep of Columbia. Getting over to Columbia from the upper east side is a little bit more of a challenge. _________________ My GMAT Debrief: http://gmatclub.com/forum/my-gmat-experience-540-to-92850.html Every man I meet is my superior in some way.

The Upper East Side is not convenient for commuting to Columbia.

Does anyone know if everyone's "To-Do List" has the same items? Mine lists "apply for visa" as one of the incomplete tasks. I'm an American citizen, so I shouldn't need a visa... I'm just worried something got confused along the way administratively because I'm currently working abroad.

I think that's on everyone's. Mine has that too, and I'm a citizen also.
