$160/week for a single (one person, one room)$140/week for a walk-though single (one person, one room)*
$120/week per person for a double (two people, one room) * A walk-through single is a room that is accessed by walking through someone else's room, or that someone must walk through to get to her room. -> 12 weeks =$2160 to $1680 http://housing.mit.edu/summer_guest EC Single 2171 Double 1910 TEP It will cost$722 or $622 per month, depending on the room. You do not need to rent for all three months. http://goo.gl/maps/mkbkv$1866 to $2166 for 3 months pika http://pikans.org/public/Summer These approximate prices are for the entire summer and include food. :) Quad:$1050
x2 = 2100, except pika has a waiting list and probably only I can get in, not my friend (not from MIT)...?
Triple: $1200 Double:$1450
x2 = $2900, again kind of risky Single:$1800

rough it out: free

TAing @ $16/hr, 20hr/wk, Jun10-Aug10 = 61 days not including end date (9 weeks) =$2880. Eek. Haha. Time to start selling things on etsy or something...
Possibly factors: novelty (not stay in same place again)

I've been spending this week mostly on applications and looking for funding. In one way, mathematically, this is a good idea -- spend a bit of time to get thousands of dollars versus work all summer to get the same amount of money. However, I am wary that I'm spending too much time on this -- time is money too.
Alternative ways to make money: finish persistence of vision yoyo and sell some. This would happen at the end of May. Con: takes up precious time, again.
