Kim?!?!? Are you going to go to Websters?

Leiden is great. There are quite a lot of Americans here, I'm just starting to notice. It's very picturesque, has *some* nightlife with some nice bars, no good clubs though, live music is limited - BUT - it's close to everywhere. Amsterdam, Rotterdam, The Hague, Delft, Utrecht, Haarlem - all can be reached in 10-40 minutes.

Well, the rent depends on your expectations I guess. If you can live in a massive house with 9 others then I'm guessing around 300-350 euros per month. 400-450 could get you something sharing with a couple of others I'd guess. 700+ for your own place. The figures aren't exact though - I'm just guessing based on what I've seen and heard before (and what friends pay).

Useful site for you here:

Lots of things are cheaper. My American housemate now can't get over how cheap the food is, and also the phone packages are supposedly ridiculously cheap. Both my ex (USA girl), and my housemate seem to be having a better standard of living than before in the US. I don't know if this helps...

What are you going to study at Leiden Uni? Law/Medicine are the big things there I think.

They have this East Asian Material Culture program that looks really solid, a lot of stuff I read is written by people connected to the university so idk I am weighing options in my mind
