    I applied to Texas State, Texas A&M Corpus Christi, UT Health Science Center at Houston, UTMB Galveston, and UMHB. Luckily I heard back from Mary Hardin Baylor which was one of my top choices already because of the great things I heard. Excited for us to begin the next chapter of our lives!

    Nice to meet you, Jessica! I'm looking forward to meeting you guys on the 24th! I will be in Belton allllll day. I'm also getting my mac checked by the IT department to see if it meets the requirements for computers.

    Ariel: CCCC is WEIRD, they look for very specific requirements. One of my professors told me that they also take into consideration if you've taken all of your classes at their school, in other words, if you've invested more into their school.

    I just looked at apartments today. I'm trying to decide if living off campus or on campus is a good idea.
  6. by   Stran07
    Do you know the approximate price of living on campus? and are they dorms or apartments?
  7. by   screaminraider06
    This is for if you are living on campus, in the apartments. (You can't stay in the dorms if you are over 21, I believe)
    Huckins Apartments
    1 bedroom / 1 bath (Shared BR) $ 2,275 Independence Village Apartments
    2 bedroom / 1 bath (Private BR) $ 3,320
    2 bedroom / 2 bath (Shared BR) $ 2,490

    Farris Hall
    2 bedroom / 2 bath (Private BR/BA) $ 3,520
    3 bedroom / 3 bath (Private BR/BA) $ 3,320
    4 bedroom / 4 bath (Private BR/BA) $ 3,140

    I will be putting a deposit down to hold an apartment. I found out today, that the availability will be very little and there is already a waiting list. I will be putting it down for Turtle Creek since it is closer to the school, cheapest option, and it is a safer neighborhood (other complexes are income based and are not as safe).

    Are these prices for the whole year or just for a semester?
  9. by   screaminraider06
    These prices are based on one semester... it's a lot more to live on campus. They gave me an estimate of ~6000 more per year. My financial aid could not help cover it all. So, I think it's a better idea to live off campus.

    I also started a Facebook group since our class does not have one yet! I think this is a better way for all of us to get to know each other and a great way for us to study and help each other as well!
