    That's like less than 900 a month. I don't know but do you think you're being too optimistic? I think expenses will be greater than that. Not sure...

    I have no idea, but do you really need a tux?

    I don't know why schools ask that we put aside allowance for clothes. It's not as if I buy clothes all the time. I buy clothes once a year - thereabout.

    What about utilities, haircuts, handphone bills, toiletries, laundry and of course, years two and three?

    pfft, i'd say those would cost £15 p/week. I only get my hair cut about once every 4 weeks anyway.

    I think you will need a tux, pretty much everyone there has one, and there will be formal evenings.
    I just need to know how much they cost...

    yeah true i could have bought one for the price i've paid so far renting...altho the rented ones weren't just regular tuxes......
    .....so are most taking suits and tuxes to university

    You could get one for £2000-3000, but why would you want to?

    The thing I'm most worried about cost-wise is going out. I'm quite sociable but I think I could either go out infrequently and have a proper rave or go out more frequently but not have as good a time :hmmmm: opportunity cost (to all you economists )

    good way of getting pissed easily - replace food with alcohol! and then it will be cheaper as well cos you will only need to buy a few drinks and you will be pissed. Genius :albertein:
