Just curious what people's thoughts would be on living at home vs. renting, if one was attending medical school in their hometown. At present, I would be inclined to rent (single apartment) for the pre-clerkship years (1 & 2) since I would want to A.) be able to totally focus on my studies and B.) be totally immersed and involved with my class/classmates/med school experience. Does that make sense? Any pros/cons? I think I would then consider living at home during years 3 and 4 when A.) I need more moral support/encouragment (haha) B.) won't have as heavy "classroom learning" and C.) may be travelling for rotations/electives/interviews anyway Can anyone comment on my train of thought or offer their own experience/ideas? Thanks for any comments!
