    Rent during PA school

    Did you go to USF?! I've actually been looking at Carrollwood and Citrus Park and am really liking those areas (although they are around the $1200 range). I'm going down in the next few weeks to get a feel for the area before I sign into anything. The only issue is that we are supposedly now moving to downtown Tampa midway through didactic year so I have to choose if I want to commute the first or second part of the year. People also suggested hyde park area but rent there is outrageous so that will probably be a no

    Rent during PA school

    Oh good idea, I'll check into that. Yes I'll be in Tampa. And you are correct, all of the those apartments are either full of wild undergrads or are "dressed up ghetto" as it states in the reviews So I'm at a bit of a loss on what to do. I can go a little farther (~8 miles from campus) for about $1200 a month which includes plenty of amenities but not utilities or anything. It's just quite a difference going from paying $500 a month now in my small Midwest town.. and I wanted to make sure I wasn't being a spoiled brat for not wanting to live in one of the run down areas. As a female by myself safety is really important to me so I think I have to be willing to pay more
  3. What was the most you allowed yourself to spend on rent while in PA school? I am moving to a relatively high cost of living area and may have to spend much more than anticipated in order to be relatively close to campus and in a safe, clean complex. I am stressed about taking $1k+ out a month in loans for rent alone. What do you guys consider a reasonable cost for rent? I realize having a roommate or two would help with the cost, but after a couple of bad experiences in undergrad I'm choosing to opt out of that if possible. I want a safe haven where I can go after class or rotations to unwind by myself. If anyone has input or suggestions, I would appreciate it

    No it says nothing about waitlist. Simply that they haven't reached a decision for me and hope to let me know as soon as possible. This is why I was wondering if the waitlist emails said something similar and perhaps they forgot to include the waitlist part? Not sure what to think but trying to stay positive

    Received an email this morning saying they haven't reached a decision for me yet. Is this the waitlist email? Has me confused Has anyone received anything similar or been accepted/rejected recently?
  13. for those accepted, do you guys mind sharing when you have to confirm this and pay the deposit?
  14. Could anyone who has interviewed explain how the group interview went? As in how many people are in the group and how they arrange who talks/when? Thank you!
  15. I interviewed Tuesday morning and haven't either. Praying no news is good news so far?? Trying not to panic and stay hopeful ?
