I will be attending McGeorge and I was just down from Portland looking at housing. I settled on a house in Davis. I figure it takes as long to get from there as it does many of the suburbs and my in-laws are there. They will do some day care for us and my wife will hopefully work in Davis. I saw a lot of crap in Sacramento but what really drove me nuts was the street layout. It is so flat yet the grid is so screwed up. lucky for me I get to be on I-80 for my commute.
Too bad the school isn't a better help for finding housing. Yes they have the bulletin boards but other schools maintain great websites for helping with housing. Lots of postings and searchable by housing type, size, cost and distance from school.
It was also a bummer that they do not have a deal with a laptop company for discounts and they have a very limited wireless network.
