<p>Okay, I will be at harvard in the fall. I am filling out my housing application and need some advice. I am debating between living with roommates in a suite or getting a single.</p>
<p>I heard the singles are in the Union dorms, but I dont really see what the complain is about. -It is not in the yard, but just outside the yard (so, not that far).
-I will have more freedom
-I will get less disturbed. With roommates, little things like coming late and turning the lights on and disturbing my sleep may cause me to do worse in school. I am the type of person who sleeps 8 hours everyday to function at best.
-I will be free to chill with friends, and have privacy in my own dorm.
-I am not overly social (as in partying, i dont drink) , but love to make close friends to hang out with etc etc....
-I am pre-med, which means I will be aiming for 3.7ish GPA and will have to study more than most others.</p>
<p>Cons of a single dorm:
-missing out on the supposedly college experience (I think this may be overrated and if it causes me to do bad in my classes etc, then I dont believe it will be worth it).
-not in the yard
-won't have those bonding experiences (although, if I get stuck with bad roommate(s), I think my experience wont be too good).</p>
<p>I am thinking I will go in to a single dorm first year and then once I get to know people etc, I will go in with blockmates for 2nd year.</p>
<p>Any advice/thoughts on my situation will be very helpful as this is due in couple days.</p>
