Are any soon-to-be Shoelickers from the GTA considering rez?

A photo of amhsirak amhsirak
I live 20 minutes away from York, so really, I could commute. I will definitely dread commuting in the winter, so I was thinking of living on rez for at least first year, but I'm afraid that rez life will be a waste of money bc there will be no social aspect (in comparison to Western). This is my biggest concern with accepting my Schulich offer. Anywho, are any fellow GTAers considering this?

You live 20 minutes away...No point in living on res.

Meh, I also live close enough to commute...and I do want to live away from home, but York doesn't seem like the safest place. There's been a string of incidents lately, and it really isn't a good neighbourhood. D:

No point. A major reason why many people go to Schulich is because they can commute + I hear York res is awful.

If I were you I'd choose Laurier or Ivey over Schulich. Not really a close-knit community at York...

IDK about the rest of York, but I've heard Schu is really tight knit bc of the overall size of the program.

You're probably right as I've never actually visited York (this is just all stuff I've heard). I've heard great things about Laurier and Western though. But it's what you make of it I suppose.

Yeah I think I might stay on rez I live like 30 minutes away though... I dunno
Rez+meal plan is like 7500?
Insurance+parking+gas should be like 5500+? That does not include cost of the car itself and food...
