I may be attending Tulsa this fall. I am still waiting to see about another school in my home state, but it looks like Tulsa.
I have heard nothing but good things about the School and the town. Anyone have any other info on the area, I am trying to research places to live.

I'm a 1L at Tulsa.  Glad to see some people are actually using this thread.  I tried without much success last year.  If any of you have questions feel free to post them.  See you all in the fall!


Tomed - try and live around campus, it makes things sooo much easier.  around May there will be a ton of rental properties and stuff for sale.

tomed:
What is the rent like in that area. I am used to a 1-2hr commute so anything within 30 min will be a blessing. Also you may not be able to help with this question, but what is the job market like in the medical industry in Tulsa? My wife will be looking for a job next december.

As to the medical question I know quite a few classmates who spouse's work in the medical field here.  All of these people are from out of state so they found jobs pretty easily.  Granted this is not a detialed response because the only knowledge I have is second hand but I hope it eases your mind a little.

Rent depends.  I currently rent a 2 br house about 900 sq ft for $650 and its only 2 blocks from school.  I would say for a 2 br, which you want so that you have a study place at home, you will be looking at any where from $600 - $900.

Also something I was unaware of, either because my home town area doesn't do this or because only Tulsa does this, but Saturdays are the big days for housing stuff in the newspaper.  Also check criaglist there are usually some pretty great properties on there.

One of the many great things about Tulsa is that you don't have to deal with a commute like that.  Compared to the major cities, traffic is a breeze and if you drive 30 minutes you can be in the country surrounded by cows.  :)  As far as rentals, have you checked into the apartments that Tulsa has on campus?  They look like they would be really nice and then you'd be right there by classes, the gym, the library, etc.  They don't allow animals so that might be a limitation for you.  I live in a nice suburb of Tulsa and my commute to the school is about 20 minutes.  You can be just about anywhere you want in Tulsa and be a quick drive to the school.  If I didn't have kids and was just moving to the area (and had rejected the on-campus apartments) I would try to find a rental near the school in one of the cute little gingerbread cottage looking houses.  There are a bunch of those in the mid-town area where the college is located.

What does your wife do in the medical industry?  If she is a nurse she will have no trouble at all finding a job.  I have several friends who are nurses and the demand for nurses is very high in Tulsa.  St. John's and Hillcrest are both just a couple of miles from the school but St. Francis is the largest hospital in Tulsa and its about 8 miles from the campus I would guesstimate.  Like I said, nothing is very far when you're used to an hour or two commute as you said you've been doing. Hope this info. helps.
