Some current students told me to spend a lot of time on my housing application as it is more important than I think. And so I am. I have a few questions and concerns and hope that some current students or whoever knows the answer can clarify for me.
The number of students I prefer to live with: could someone describe how the Harvard suits work? I heard that not every suite has a private bathroom, etc. Do I still have to share a bedroom if we're already sharing the same suit? And what's the minimum number of roommates I need in order to have a private bathroom for our suit? I was thinking of putting down 3 roommates, as they probably will add a couple on top of that. Is it true that it is better to have more roommates in freshmen year?
As for a room that is quiet/serious or neat and disordered: I am a partyboy, and i prefer going out and having people coming over to my room. However, does a lively social center mean my room is really close to say the entrance of the building, or a particular public attraction? or does it mean my roommates will also be very social and party like?
