I'm considering moving there for graduate school next year. I've heard things about how expensive it is, and considering I'll be a broke student anyway, I was wondering how bad it really is. Is it really horrible to the point where I won't be able to afford a gym and food, or is the talk kind of overblown, and it just means I won't be able to go out every weekend, or have the latest and nicest clothes? Also, what are some of the better areas to live? I'd like to be maybe within 10-15 minutes (or a short cab ride) from the gay bars, but not live in 'gay cental'. I'm i Chicago now and I gotta get out of here! Any information would be greatly appreciated.
