If you thought you had it totally made when you snagged that Beige Block apartment for your sophomore year, think again. A recent New York Post article conveys that the perils of pinning down an ideal apartment persist– even if you’re a Wharton grad in New York City.
Meet Phillip, Nicolas and Ryan, three Penn alum who were tempted to make big bends in their budgets in order to land what seemed to be the perfect place, minus, um, the cost. With these former Quakers as an example of what could have been a less-than-ideal scenario, the Post takes this opportunity to delve into the top 5 (yes, another list) ways to maximize your post-grad apartment quest.

All Menus is a party in the USA
Members of the class of ’10 received an email from Campusfood stating that they understand how difficult it is for recent graduates to move on from their not-so-guilty pleasure. So they remedied the situation by inviting 2010 to use All Menus, the grown up’s version of Campusfood.

This week’s issue of the glossy features a ten-page spread that polls and interviews Class of ’09 graduates, be they from fifth grade or from master’s programs. Among the lucky diploma-wielding groups featured is the recently graduated Wharton MBA class (aside from Yale’s School of Architecture, Wharton is the only program not located in New York City). Among the various graduates pictured is Neil Dalal, who is unfortunately sporting a gray fleece Wharton vest in his photo (eww). Dalal is quoted as saying,

Ah, the tough life of making a hundred G a year. We feel for you, Neil.
