Apartment hunting AFTER you've started work?Living in/near downtown in my city = $1200-1500/mo for a 1BR apt. I'm thinking around $700-900/mo for a 2BR if I find a roommate. I can't see myself paying up to $1500/mo for a place I might only be able to enjoy on the weekends, so I'll probably go with the latter. I'm basically wondering if I... 5 3 years 4 weeks

It's a shame that Ivey manages to keep a tight grip on OCR because it basically rules out everyone else from being looked at - even if you're in a difficult econ program.

Anyone have a preference between these two? I know that Hilton allows double dipping - receiving both hotel and airline points together. 16 3 years 2 months

I know you can claim your missing nights afterwards but I'm not sure if you're required to have been a member during the nights you're trying to claim.
