I'm back with more questions... right now I'm really considering USC, Yale, University of Texas, and maybe a school in New York. The big draw for me to Texas is the atmosphere... I realize that I'll be a grad student but I'm really into getting as much of the US college experience as I can. McGill is pretty lame on the college experience, but Montreal has great night spots so it makes up for it. A few questions: A) How expensive is this city B) Do you take cabs everywhere at night if you want to go out? C) Is everything centralized or are most clubs/bars/restaurants really spread out? D) I know it's really hot during the day. Does it cool down a lot at night? Does the change of the seasons even make itself known or is it pretty much Texas all the time? E) As a [email protected] F) How big is the airport? Is do you have to transfer for Houston or Dallas to take international or cross country flights? For now, that's probably most of what I wanted to ask. There's a really great teacher at this school who I want to study with... before I was all about the very prestigious schools but now I'm considering the whole package and places like Juilliard and John's Hopkins seem incredibly depressing to me so I'm not even going to apply.
