Can anyone not wealthy weigh in on how reasonable the cost of attendance calculation is to live off of? AKA, am I going to be living in Solid Snake's cardboard box while eating the oranges inside it?
Native Angeleno here. I pay $1500 for a two bedroom, 1000 square foot apartment Downtown. I spend $75/week on groceries for my partner and I, and only eat at restaurants a max of twice per week. I have an old car, and spend $35 on gas every other week. Depending on where you live, there are deals to be had. PM me for more specific questions.
