I graduated college in May 2004. I've been working in a management role in New Markets and Licensed Product Development for a distributor. I'm leaving my job at the end of the summer because of the commute. I work in North Haven (southern end of the state), and it's just too far of a commute to go from work to school in Mass. I'll be looking for a job at a local law firm. I've got a few connections - so I'm banking on them. I bought a new car last year, plus monthly bills - so not working is not an option.
As far as where people live - I have no idea. I live in central CT, so I'll be commuting to school. It's only about a 30 min. drive from where I live. It looks as though you'll be looking for a place. I noticed that the school offers assistance in finding apartments. Check out this site, it may be of some help.
