|1 week 3 days ago||There are a lot of||
There are a lot of out-of-staters who seem to think that NYC or SF rental rates apply to AA, and this has driven some insane rents in these days. The rates in these high-rise buildings are often over $1000 per month per room. Moreover, the dirty secret is that the buildings are not well maintained, and some have major outages (elevator, hot water, etc).
These buildings tend to be a social status thing, with students feeling like they absoulutely MUST be in a certain building with certain people or their life WILL end. For better or for worse, I regularly work with college students and it's amazing how much they stress (often at the expense of academics) over who they will live with and where every lease-signing season.
My kids are still young so it's easy for me to talk but personally I'd set the budget and say live where you want on "x" dollars.
Finally, I live on North Campus and a 2500 sq ft colonial just sold for about $250,000 in a nice area. If your're ready to drop $1000+ a month on rent, why not get a whole house for about as much and she can rent it to her friends? Not to mention you can rent it when you're done for over $2000 a month.

Dude, I saved an impossible amount of money living in the AXE house. Doubt it is still the case, but used to be that rent dropped $100 a month during the summer, and it was already half of what other places were charging.

I would have suggested sitting at the bar but ever since sava decided to remodel a couple years ago (dump the best entrees while raising prices) the joint just hasn't been the same.

I once did a study of health plan minimums in every state for the largest HMO in the country. Without wading into politics here, the ACA minimums raised the bar in pretty much every state. So I don't disagree it's possible your ACA plans is worse, but for an overwhelming % of people their ACA plan covers more.

I signed up for season tickets about 9 years ago. At the time there was a two year wait list. I asked the clerk of making a donation would perhaps move me off the wait list. I was told perhaps it would. I next asked how many dollars would perhaps move me off such a list. She wouldn't hint at an amount.

There was a meta thread a while ago about creating a separate forum for threads that venture into topics that otherwise verboten by our moderator overlords (I didn't get to read it). This thread here really shows that such a thing could be possible. Would be nice to have another sandbox to play in...

To join the EU turkey must approve freedom of the press. To do that, turkey must open the conversation to their perpetrating a genocide against the Armenians in 1915. Considering they active lobby money in many countries (including the U.S.) to avoid said responsibility... This isn't likely to happen.
