I posted the other day trying to figure out where to live (moving from the NYC area), and I've come up with a slightly new plan.
I'm hoping to get into a grad school program at University of Maryland, College Park. Back up school is Towson. DH will be commuting into DC.
We THINK we want to live near Silver Spring, but we don't really know the area.
Is that a reasonable choice for a young family? What surrounding towns are also good options? We'll be renting til I'm done with school, since we are losing money on the sale of our current house. So we want "affordable" - which I know is a relative term. Any specific parts of town to avoid? DS will end up in starting kindergarten while we still live there, so public schools are important.
