Thanks for the great information. I really appreciate it. My fiance and I are living in Alexandria, and it does not seem that a move is in the works. Im going to do a trail run on Sunday. Ill catch the metro and the whole nine and see what how long the route is. I know it wont be exact, but it will let me know what is in store.
Also Im heading over to Howard on Wed and trying to get financial aid started. Wish me luck because I need a nice sum for rent and food.
As far as the area, I always felt that the Van Ness area was fairly nice. It has a nice mix and Im excited about the school's location. Does anyone know if there is a shuttle that picks you up from the metro or is the walk short enough?
