It's kind of unique in the sense that there's an express train that gets you into the heart of the city rather quickly, when the express train isn't running (nights), it's sort of a trek.

Dude that's fucking tiny for a two bedroom. Here's a layout of a 660 sq ft 1 br that I found by me. How the hell do you fit two bedrooms in an apartment that size?

you're going to need to adjust your expectations for real estate if you're gonna do NYC.

Make that kitchen into a galley and join the dining and living rooms.

NYers do w/o living rooms- NY is your living room! foo.gif

Naw but for real, living room obviously becomes 2nd bedroom.

Which is why we had to get the hell out. We had a 1BR, about that size. Noise drove me nuts and we started running out of space. Getting the mop out of the hall closet took like 10 minutes.

Sounds horrific. Wonder what Columbia/Stern offer students in terms of housing.

Hopefully this will all be resolved by being accepted to HBS.

hahaha if you're going to go for stern housing be prepared for 350 sq feet 2 bedrooms.

This is the exact reason I will never live in a city; need my space to kick back and listen to wilderness.

There's a lot of stuff I simply don't do now in the gym because of it but I am stronger than ever. It's just a waiting game and then being proactive and patient. Finding the imbalance that caused it in the first place and working on strengthening that.

Thanks for the perspective. I feel like I've finally gotten over the guilt-compulsion to lift and have accepted that it's going to take time, but it still gets to me once in awhile. I really don't want to be left with any long-term injuries so I'm going to have to suck up the fact that it could be a year or longer before I can back to it.

How did you approach rehab when you got serious about it? Daily routines, activities you avoided, etc. I realize all injuries are different, but the mindset and mental approach seem to be the most important part for me... Just wondering how you guys kept on with the rehab whilst staying sane in the face of only wanting to train in spite of it.

jarude post them progress pictures again of you a long long time ago. I coulda sworn your right shoulder looked like it was in the wrong position.

Yeah my shoulders are a little imbalanced, I'll dig them up when I'm home.

There is a teres minor trigger point (I think) that refuses to improve and hurts like a bastard when I theracane it, but a good half hour of kneading on it affords me about 60 seconds of 100% bliss... Not sure what that means. I feel like it would've cleared up by now if it was the trigger point causing anything, or if its some satellite injury site that pressing on provides relief despite not being the cause.

i can't speak for stern or other business schools but it's really not worth it to do the student thing in manhattan unless you're on scholarship or someone else is paying for it. i've got one more year of school here and i'm probably going to leave. the price per square foot is way too high plus my wife and i got this little dachshund now which makes it seem even smaller.

Serious question:

Have you seen a good physical/pain medicine and/or rehab person?

I'm not really that excited about stern, it's towards the bottom of my list of schools I'm applying to TBH:

HBS
Wharton
Columbia
Booth
Stern
Tuck
Kellogg

Might bump Tuck up over Stern depending on my research. I'm not even really excited about Kellogg so no idea why I'm applying.
