I got a puppy in my 3rd year of college.

I wouldn't wish that on anyone else. It was HARD. And expensive. Like, really really "I wanna give up and curl up in a ball and cry" hard. And for the first year and a half, I lived with 3 other roommates too.

Not ideal. Really. Just wait, you'll be far better for it.
Agreed^.

A dog is a pretty big stretch in school. I got my first adult rescue years back and I was in school. That was pretty brutal at times. I can't even imagine the kind of stress a puppy during school would produce.

Some folks just need to experience something themselves and don't put a lot of stock in anecdotal advice or others' experiences. That's totally ok, I am 100% that way too. But let me tell you, as someone who does indeed think like that, I wish I would have listened to others more, at least on this matter. (FWIW, I hardly EVER say, "gee, I really should have listened to XYZ after all," so that ought to tell you something!)
