May I ask why you don't like NCY or want to study there? No hard feeling, just curious. :)
I just don’t enjoy the city, and if you’re going to put up with the constant hurricane of bullshit that is living in New York (which, yes, I have done, before anyone jumps down my throat about that), you have to really love it. Like if I’m going to live somewhere it costs $15 for a pack of cigarettes and $2,300 a month to live in a studio with three roommates, an entire cockroach commune, and no A/C, it’s going to have to be Hogsmeade or something.
