    Hey guys! I've been reading this post since I've applied and decided to join in. I recently got accepted for the fall 2013 cohort. Anyone in the area or in the program now is the dorming houses good or should I look for an apartment nearby? Also, what neighborhoods are good and affordable to live in? I am from Long Island

    Hi tonimariep,


    Concerning the living situation that depends. Will you have a car? You can look in many parts of Westchester and even take a peek in the Bronx. If you do not have a car I would not advise living to far just because you are not familiar with public transportation in Westchester. Bronxville would be best however that is a very expensive neighborhood. I have seen rentals go there for around $2100 a month .However Mount Vernon, Yonkers, White Plains, and New Rochelle are nice ( some of these have caveats attached such as where in the city you are living ) and have decent rental prices.

    Thanks AccelBSN12 I look forward to meeting everyone. What is everyone planning on doing about work? My thoughts are to drop to per diem and work maybe 2 shifts per week. I'm anticipating spending a lot of time studying and know it won't leave many free hours. I am nervous though because my bills and living expenses aren't going anywhere.
