We're paying about 16 hundred a month that's not including utilities. I can't say my experience here have been amazing, but after what I hear from other classmates, I can't really complain. We have minor roof leaks when it storms, but they've fixed it since then.. still waiting for rain to test it out. :X I hear that living on the second floor is usually better. AC/Heater works amazingly. The apartment is pretty spacious and it's only about 5 minutes from campus so we literally leave 10 minutes before class starts, which is great! Our neighbors are pretty friendly, there's a lot of kids, so it makes it feel a lot safer. Big negative is that maintenance takes FOREVER to get back to us in terms of fixing things, so you learn to either suck it up or become very handy! :) We got lucky with our apartment since there were only minor issues. I'd recommend that you start calling multiple complexes to get on the waitlists since there's very limited spaces open. Best of luck!
Hey guys, I matriculated into this program last May. We've completed the first summer semester so far, and I am currently in the Fall semester here at Tech. I applied to about 7 other schools, got 4 interviews and ended up in Midland, Texas. Not going to lie, but housing is kinda expensive, water sucks and I don't know where to recycle my glass cans.. but Iooking back, I wouldn't have it any other way. Although the school is segregated from the main campus, being in Midland really helped me concentrate. There are no distractions.. not much to do. There are about 2 starbucks here, and whenever you plan to study outside of your apartment, about a third of the class is at that SB right with you. But whenever our class finds a free weekend, we get together at bars, outdoor drive ins, indoor theatres, .. and you really learn to appreciate the little things. Professors are great. They really care and will spend their time to make sure you understand the information. Best thing about Tech is that the class (both the 2nd years and fellow classmates) will look out for you. It's like a little family we have here and although it's not at the greatest location, the program definitely doesn't lack the hospitality and support that I believe we all need to get through the rigorous didactic year. Here's our class video we put together: Enjoy!
