I'm a first year student and I'm unsure about what to do about my living situation for next year. Living on res is preferable just cause its a lot more convenient for me. However, residence for upper years isn't guaranteed and I would find out about my waitlist situation early in June. I was looking at rental properties and student apartments, but if I secure one for next year I would have to pay the rent for May/June/July until I find out whether I've been accepted to res or not. I wanna try my best to live on res, but I'm just not sure how to handle my situation.
Any advice would be greatly appreciated.
