so i just checked my residence application and it says i'm currently number 16 on the waiting list. Do you think i will get into residence? But after everything i've read about living off campus, i feel like i'd rather live off campus instead haha

I lived off-campus first year, but I was kinda far from the campus (about a 30 minute walk).

If you are a stalwart studier, I don't think that would be a problem, but if you want to actually have real social interaction you need to go out and make the effort, show up to as many events as you can. My area bored me to tears (only had one roommate), but that was mostly my fault.

Good luck to ya!

update to thread: I just got into residence, but they really made it seem like I wouldn't stand a chance in hell.

The thing is, I already paid my deposit for a place that's off campus. The only thing that's making myself question whether to still consider residence is the proximity of all my classes...having to share a room with somebody else has got to suck.
