1. Because of the wide variety of students and backgrounds at NYU, I've heard MANY different answers to the question "How much do you spend on average a month?"
I've currently guessed about $200 a month, but is this reasonable? I'm a girl so I enjoy clothes every now and then, but I wouldn't spend more than $50 a month on that stuff. The rest I was planning to go for eating out, toiletries, Metrocards (just occasional, not unlimited), and the *occasional* concert/party/event (I like going out, but I'll be very busy). Is $200 too little?
2. Should I get a 175 flex meal plan or a 225 flex meal plan. I was thinking 175 and I'd get the rest of my food elsewhere, esp. since I only have very small breakfasts that I could get for cheap otherwise... but what do you think?
Thanks in advance for any responses, it truly is appreciated!
