Hi everyone, I got accepted to columbia as well! Very excited to meet all of you!
Any updates on the open house? How was it? How many people turned up? How was the interaction with faculty? Anything...
Anyhow, can anyone explain to me the major differences between the degree offered by GSD and the other schools such as Columbia, MIT, etc.?
How did everyone's housing assignments go?
After starting off my search with the intention of living off campus in Midtown, Chelsea or West Village, I am now strongly leaning towards to option offered by UAH. Takes a lot of stress out of the moving process given that it is furnished, inexpensive and with easy access to campus.
Now I am trying to figure out if I can exit the lease after first semester if I find something compelling off-campus.
How is everyone else doing for housing? I am moving down for a 4-wk development internship prior to the program start date if anyone wants to meet up for a beer before things kick off.
Chrisjr and any other Columbia class of 2014. I've been accepted to and planning on attending the MSRED program this year. Any advice on housing? Would student housing be the most economical and convenient? Any other tips and advice for the incoming class would be greatly appreciated as well.
Congratulations to all who have been accepted, we're almost done and personally I think it's a fantastic experience!
Student housing was very difficult to get, and very few were able to get it I think. In terms of it being economical - I think there are many options near campus and there is a HUGE range in terms of rents. I know of a few people who are renting at rates even cheaper than university housing.
Thanks hippy. Would you recommend living in Morningside heights or upper Westside? Any tips for the incoming class? What are your plans after graduation?
