I'm probably heading to PSU this Fall. Can someone help me out? I have a couple of questions.
I do have a fellowship from the university that takes care of tuition and pays me a stipend but that being said, how expensive is State College in general? As a single PhD student (probably getting a car), how much am I likely to be spending annually, excluding rent? If I run out of money, I'm properly messed up as an international student with zero fallback
Secondly, has anyone here stayed at Executive House Apartments? The place seemed nice from the pictures. Apparently, it's located on Waupelani Drive and I have no idea how the neighbourhood is. It was one of the few places that didn't ask for a US Social security number to rent.
Finally, my girlfriend lives up in Albany, some 5 hours away. That's a long drive that I'm willing to make if the roads are pliable. Realistically, how often does the weather get bad enough that driving becomes an issue?
Cheers! See you all this Fall in any case
