    Check to make sure that your Air Conditioner is working properly.

    Congrats! You won't be sorry about the move to Columbia or NYC. As far as what to do, there's so much. Search this board like crazy and you'll see more than you could hope for.

    Good luck and all the best.

    Im considering leaving NY to go to LA. Ive made arrangements to go visit this Nov. with a friend. I like NY dont get me wrong, but LA seems much more relaxed, nice weather, beaches are great. I just think Id like it better. We'll see...

    I plan to move to LA later in life when I get bored and/or less mobile. Kind of like Laverne and Shirley. Until then NY has too many opportunities to offer.

    Yankee- have you been able to get out of the city at all? It really eases the transition to be able to get out and miss it a bit. I like rural pa for an extreme change of pace.

    That's too bad - you were so excited to move here! What's disappointed you?

    Stress. Not really from the city itself, but as you would assume it hasnt helped. Ive made some changes in my schedule that may help me out, I hope so. Which includes getting out of the city ATLEAST once a month. Since I came back in Jan. this is my first time outside of the city. I like NY still, I just dont think I want to stay here after college. I really miss having my car too.

    I think you did well. I live in Vienna, Austria and have visited both New York and LA. I would have settled for New York too! Good choice. I feel better in New York, better atmosphere. Also it is my impression that LA is less safe, pretty high street crime rate. I think the only advantage LA has: better temperatures in winter….

    Good choice... Wish you luck with Columbia housing... I think you should be on the top of the list, coming from abroad... Most universities take the student's origin into consideration...

    One more thing... you will love the food in NYC..
