    Hey Carly! I am still looking for a roommate and I'm looking in the areas of fairmount and center city. Only issue is I have a small puppy that is coming with me. I am going to go down around October again to look around; let me know when you are going, maybe we can meet up and go look around together.

    emm55 i think the pre-reqs need to be completed by january 15th; at least that’s what i think it said in the packet peggy sent me. i went down to philly last weekend to look at the different areas. all the areas in philly seem to go from really nice to kind of dangerous. if you want to be right next to the university; look at university city. it seemed like the closer to the campus you are the safer it is. the area around university of penn also seems a little safer than the area outside drexel. i looked at the fairmount area which was very nice; it’s about a 20 minute drive with morning traffic. logan square, society hill and center city (and areas around them) were nice and i felt pretty safe there. the rents were a little high but if you were planning on having a roommate they seemed reasonable. in my personal opinion the more north and the more south i went from center city the sketchier the area. i currently live in a big city now and how safe i feel is very important to me; i feel that it may have swayed me away from some areas that i dont know enough about. what part of cali are you from?

    Hello and congradulations to everyone who got in!!! My name is Erica and I also was accepted into the program! I am originally from Manhattan and I am wondering about the living situation around campus. Someone told me a 1 bedroom can cost upwards of 1200 a month in center city. What areas are you guys moving too? Also is anyone looking for a roommate?
