Mass transit.

I'm spending nearly $400/month on automotive-related expenses for a car I don't enjoy driving. That's about 25% of my monthly income, and when it really comes down to it, I think I'd rather be saving that money for something better, like travel. Or education. Or Scotch. Lots and lots of Scotch. [more inside]

Would you like some more tax sir?

Any Canadian graduate students at an American university to help clear this mess up? According to other CDN graduate students and a previous MeFi post we're not to be taxed on our stipends by Canada. However, despite much letter writing and form filling (i.e. form NR73) the Canadian Revenue Agency insists that I file my taxes. So what exactly did you do to get free of them? [more inside]

Should graduate students buy houses? And if so, how?

Despite MetaFilter's members' fantastic advice for my boyfriend to choose MIT over GA Tech, my guy is most likely going to stay in Atlanta. He's talked about the possibility of buying a house in ATL, but living on a student stipend, and without substantial savings, how would that work? (He's curious, too, not just me.) Renting in Atlanta is expensive, so a house payment could very possibly be lower than rent . . . and we've heard sometimes people buy without down payments now . . . but we're not sure about the logistics. Any good info is appreciated. : )
