So I'm a single 20 year old and I'm due in the next two weeks. Right now I'm back living with my family to save money and make finishing school easier. The plan right now is for baby to sleep in my room - indefinitely. Hopefully in the next 2-3 years I can move out but it's very tentative. Basically, are there any negative affects of baby sleeping in the same room as me for longer than six months? My parents house isn't all that big and we don't have an extra room. Not sure what to do- any advice is welcome.

I have 4 people in a 2 bedroom apartment. My girls are 13 and have one room and my son is 7 and shares w/ me... which he will have to do until both (or at least one) of his sisters moves out... Do the math. ;)

Basically... no, co-sleeping at any age is fine. You may have trouble getting baby/child to sleep alone one you DO have the space for it, but that is the only potential 'problem'... and isn't one worth worrying about at this time.

No. It shouldn't be an issue. When you move, you may have trouble getting her to go to sleep in her own room, but there are ways you can make this also be exciting for her. In the meantime, sharing a room with you won't cause any problems. Definitely no developmental issues.

I wasn't sure if she's in my room as old as two years if it would have any bad developmental effect or not :/ like dependency issues or something ?

Why would there be negative effects? People share rooms with their babies all the time. Heck, people share beds with their babies all the time. Out of choice. Even older than 6 months. No negative effects.
