So after graduating from college in May 2006 and floating around 2 different jobs for the past year and a half, I think I'm ready to head back to grad school in NYC. If I'm accepted, I'll be doing the Masters of Art for Business program at Sotheby's, which consists of 9 months of study in NYC (Sept-May) and 3 months (June-Oct) in London!Ideally I'll move in with a friend this June, who already lives up there, and do a June-June lease so I'll be free to move to London next summer. I'm no small town girl, and I've travelled extensively internationally and lived in Italy for a year, but I stil get giddy thinking about moving to NYC. My boyfriend is in I-banking like every other boy in NYC, and his plan is to transfer up there sometime this spring to work at a larger bank, so I know I won't be seeing much of him for like 2 years. But it will pay off in the long run because he'll be making excellent money and it will open alot of doors. Ladies, please share your experiences with me! Where do you live? What areas do you like? Sotheby's is on the UES, and I'm open to living pretty much anywhere: UES, UWS, East/West Village, Chelsea, Soho.. I know rent is going to be $$, Atlanta already is pretty pricey so that's not a huge shock, and thank god my parents will still be footing my bills. I'm really just looking for some reassurance that I'm not totally crazy for doing this. This Masters program I want to do is amazing and will open soo many doors for me in the art world, in NYC as well as DC, LA, San Fran, etc.. Thanks girls!
