I went to undergrad in San Diego, and as far as what u are talking about jwax, and I somewhta see where u are coming from as far as sterile, i think though that is more like mellow and laid back, everyone seems tro get along really well, i had forgotten how laid back everyone was being used to LA, but i think it does have a lot of culture. It is definitely a cultural melting pot with lots of different ethnic mixes and restarunts and such but san diego does tend to be a lil more conservative, but nothing extreme. I dont think its for everyone though, those who thrive in a big city prolly would feel kind alike you do, it definitely has more of a small town feel for such a large city.
Sunset- As far as housing goes, there is definitely places near the campus where you can get cheaper housing and even prolly live alone as opposed to living in grad housing. The good thing is there isnt much traffic around the area, so u could even live 15-20 miles away and it still wouldnt be much of a drive. When is the evening reception, btw? I never heard anything about that?
Starresky- USD is definitely at top of my list. i am planning on sending in my deposit later this week and withdrawing from other schools. i am still waiting on USC, that would make my decision tougher if I got in there. But until yesterday, i really forgot how much I loved San Diego and i am really looking forward to moving back
