I hope you look forward to getting your admission letters tomorrow (if you have applied that is). Just like Mia, I would like to suggest that you think about housing options. I was a bit naive and didn’t apply for the SSSB queue for some time, losing a fair amount of days. Even though you live in the same city you’ve applied to study in (like I did) it is good to plan ahead, because it can take a long time before you actually have enough days to get something.

For example, you might really like living at home right now, but that can change next year. A dorm room at Forum next to KTH can require you to have up to 800 days (even if that can be substantially less if you apply at a good time). I queued for almost 3 years in order to get my dorm room. With that said, the earlier you can start accumulating days, the better.

“Forum, my home last year”

It’s a shame that it is so hard to get your own place as a student, but try to make the best of the situation and think forward. A travel time between home and school of an hour might be ok now, but I got really tired of it after 3 years. By moving I decreased that to 5 minutes – made the 08.00 lecture a lot easier to get up to.

I agree! It’s can also be rather difficult to find something to rent from a private landlord.
