Welcome to our new beta design! Click here to go back to the old Newschoolers.
good luck is all i can say..ive still got a couple friends that graduated in 2009 and are still lookin for jobs..what did you graduate with?
The city is awesome, people are very proud to be from here are you looking to live in the south end or southie? two very different places..I would stay away from anywhere near southern boston ( ie hyde park, roxbury, dorchester, jamaica plain) very tough areas with high crime rates and there have been a very high number of shootings this past summer
Allston/brighton neighboorhood is the best place to live (for a recent college grad) its the epitomy of a college town with BU, BC, northeastern and harvard/MIT right across the river..its reasonably priced I live in a 3 bedroom and we pay a total of $2,200 a month..but the best part are all the great bars in the area, you'll feel like you never left college
the green lines sucks, especially when the college kids come back in the fall, but the red line is pretty decent and very efficient and there are plenty of bus routes so get familiar with them..don't live anywhere where you need to drive on 93 or 90 because every single morning and afternoon the roads are clogged like you wouldnt believe
Try having to take the green B line everyday..you'll want to fucking kill someone its so incredibly inefficient
also last train at 12:45? you shittin me? Boston has the second earliest closing public transportation system in the country for a major city (second only to el paso, tx) but its also very cheap to commute daily..guess thats the tradeoff
