I'm pretty much set on TJ.  Now time to figure out the housing situation.  Yay!

Where should I go next fall? / Re: San Diego Living?

Honestly, I want to be within 2 miles from school (preferably even 1 mile), especially if I'm not going to have a car.  So it looks like I will be limited to the neighborhoods of Hillcrest, Old Town, Mission Hills, Midtown, USD's campus.  Sound about right?

The advice is much appreciated guys.  This is good info to get my search started.

@ Scentless:  The coast sounds sweet, the only problem I'll have is distance, I don't plan on having a car my first year.  How's Old Town like in general?  I've heard mixed reviews, for instance, its located in an industrial area.  I been to San Diego many times, but haven't checked out Old town at all.  Also, does the public transportation suck that bad?  Or is it on par with any ordinary big city, nothing special worth noting?

I'm trying to get some feedback on the different neighborhoods surrounding TJSL, i.e., safety, price, public transportation, distance from the school.

Mission Valley, La Jolla, Old Town, La Mesa, Kensington, downtown, Clairmont, Ocean Beach, Pacific Beach are some I thought of.  Looking to hear from current or former students, accepted students, and San Diego residents.

*Again, just looking for feedback about living situations.

Transferring / Re: T4 transfer to T2/T1
« on: April 09, 2009, 06:03:42 PM »
"As a general rule of thumb, transferring up from a T-4 can only help."  This is what I was thinking all along. 

About the payment issue, I'm getting some financial help from them, but tuition is not 100% covered.  I'm actually relying on CCRAA, the new law that was passed in 2007 and takes effect July 2009, which you may have heard of.  Essentially, under this act, any lawyer who is employed in public service (broadly defined, including JAG) for a period of 10 years total, can have the remainder of all eligible loans forgiven.  Eligible loans include federal loans (subsidized and unsubsidized Stafford loans/Grad PLUS/Perkins?).  In this situation, tuition cost at a given school would be a negligible factor in my opinion.

But I think I will go ahead and take this issue up with some former JAG officers.

Cheers!

I'm still holding out for a decision from my number one school.  But if that doesn't pan out, then TJSL here I come.  Coming from Seattle, I'm pretty stoked about moving down to SD.
