d@mn you guys... I wish I can remove option #3 now since it really doesn't help me decide anything at all...
I guess some of you are right, do I really want to see the same person spending all day in class with him already? but then it will be really convenient to "collaborate" on assignments and always have a buddy to remind you to hand in that paper or tell you what the article was about if you don't have time to read it.
Also, besides saving the money, the apartment will be much bigger than a studio. I've never lived in a studio before but I think it might be weird to have kitchen/bed/desk all in one place... sharing would mean I get a proper 2 bedroom apartment with living area and kitchen.
I guess I am just hesitant about posting to the student forum just yet... maybe in another week or two
