“Dear PoP,

This fall, I will be taking courses at Johns Hopkins’ DC campus while interning on the Hill.

Currently I am looking for a room to rent, and was wondering if you might know of someone searching for a well-mannered roommate. I am trying to stay within a budget and don’t require much at all, but having a comfortable and safe living situation is important. I am unsure as to what I should be paying and where I should be living. Any leads or advice you may have would be most appreciated.”

What do you guys think the going rate is if you get a roomate? $700 – $1000? If this reader is going to be studying in Dupont but working on the Hill where should he focus his search – on the Hill or by Dupont?
