Haven't made decisions yet - still waiting to hear back from my last school, but I might postpone my MBA til next year as well due to many reasons.....


So we should set up a thread like "Vandy 2013 - Calling all reapplicants" :D
What are your reasons? Can you share here?

Ahh, you know - family, money, future plans all getting mixed in together. Can't really pick one. I'm sure everyone goes through this phase sooner or later.....

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!!!!!


Hi Anshul,

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!

Hope this helps! See you on the campus!

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 !

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 :)
