Congrats to everyone admitted.
Hello Eveyone. Congratulations for getting selected to the Owen MBA. I have also been selected to the Owen MBA 2012 and will be joining the same. Just needed some information about the rents & all for Nashville. Will I ba able to get 1 BHK or a studio flat for less than $500 pm. How much will my monthly expenses increase if I bring my wife with me. I hope to live a very simple student life for 21 months & will try to cut down on all the expenses as much as possible. Are there any localities near to university which are reasonable. Kindly siggest the names as well. I dont think that I'll own a car while studying but it depends on the need.
Thanks in advance!!!!!
Congratulations on the admit! As for the room requirement - I would suggest you go on http://apartmentselector.com/ and write to them with your requirements. They are quiet resourceful and all free. I am in touch with them too but plan to get more info on housing options when I visit Owen in April and I will look around for a few properties as well on the same trip. So, I can share that info with you if you still haven't closed a deal Now if you don't plan to buy a car, it will be difficult to get an apartment in your price range in Vandy's walking distance. Any and everything around $500/600 is 7-8 miles away from school. So, look for apartments which fall on the bus route. But having said that you will need to do your groceries , preferably from an Indian Store (Patel Brothers) so the distance to that needs to be considered as well! Even if you spend bare minimum this what your monthly bills will be (approx) - Rent - $500 (you are being too ambitious though) Food - $ 400 (max for two people) Rides- The bus is free for students, see if you could work out a grocery schedule around it Electricity & Cable & Heat - $ 65- $100 (max)
But Truth be told - If you are getting your wife to Nashville, you would want to introduce her to the vibrant culture of Nashville. A meal here and a morsel there! You both will end up shopping on Black friday and Thankgiving sales and don't forget the India Cinema will not stop churning out surprises and blockbusters on the big screen. So you would want to catch a movie or two in year (even if you are not a Indian movie buff like me)! so do the maths yourself!
Hey goodbyeboy, as an international applicant who has been admitted, I got concerned with your statement here. Would you be willing to give more info on your experience and what you did not like..?
Thanks ! iAqua4
Received my admit binder last week...I probably won't make my decision until early April...
I was accepted last November and still haven't received my admit binder..... interactions I had with Owen's administration isn't the best, at least from an international applicant's point of view.
I talked to an Owen alumni today. I was still considering whether to go to the school this Fall due to financial issues. But, after talking to him, I think it's worth my investment. He told me that the school's people (including professors and other staffs) are very nice and supportive. The atmosphere is friendly. So, GBboy's experience may be rare ... See you guys in Nashville
