    Dbabklyn, nyu would be awesome!! But probably also pricey. Rochester is $60,000 in tuition alone...where did you hear that sum for umass? I was told $29,000 for tuition?
    I found the orientation info from last year and the total was over $50,000. I'm not sure about just the tuition. I guess we'll know when they send us the package

    Hi new friends!
    Congratulations to everyone who has been accepted. I was hoping to start the exchange of emails, etc. so we can get acquainted. Also, I've never been to Amherst and am 98% sure I'm going to pick UMass over Wagner and UMDNJ so would love to get any info regarding apartments close by and a bit about the town if anyone can share your wealth of knowledge!

    @ shamrock Hey! I just got in, so excited! I'm from San Francisco Bay Area, what part of California are you from? They recomend that you get a car because we have to go to clinicals all over the place and public transportation doesn't always run. I may lease a car for the 17 months rather than drive all the way there. What are you doing about housing?

    Gogators1919: depending on where you want to live, there is a lot of (student-type) apartments available - from 800-1200. If you're sharing, it should be reasonable. I live 18 miles south of Amherst and the rent is a little more reasonable. However, if you're not interested in student housing - there will be quite a bit available beginning next month on Craig's List -> western mass.

    During the orientation session, it was recommended to have a car - for the practicals. However, you might be able to carpool.

    So excited for everyone - can't wait to meet in September.

    You guys mind posting your academic stats?

    Also do you think they emailed everyone yesterday or still in the process?

    I know I am probably holding onto a tiny piece of hope, but It is all I have...
