    So you know officially that you are pulled off the OML? I'm on the OML and I talked to my recruiter and she didn't know anything about any of this.

    What number are you? The top ten were pulled as per LTC W and I know one person unfortunately has to defer so if you are in the top 11 then you are in.

    I know what defer means but I didn't know if it was because of personal reasons or military imposed reason ie physical or something like that.

    Normally, defered is a personal reason not imposed by the military. Then it would be DQ'd if the Army did it.

    lol, Somebody got a heck of a Job offer it seems. haha. I mean there are always family type of reasons, but to go through this process and get selected and then defer, I am thinking someone got a heck of a job offer.

    Anyone on here have any recommendations on apartments in San Antonio/Ft. Sam?? I am beginning the process of looking for a place to move and it is a bit overwhelming. Any help would be greatly appreciated.

    North or northeast past 410 and north of 35... if you can afford it then Alamo heights, Terrell hills or Olmos park.... some people live in the schertz area too. I'm in far NE near the Judson exit for 1604 and it takes me 20-25 minutes in light traffic and 40+ at the worst of rush hour, which I usually miss.

    Use google maps to get a sense of drive times once you've found some spots you're interested in. Show traffic on the map but not the live traffic; there is an option to show normal traffic at any given day or time... I forget the actual name of it but its pretty obvious if you're looking for it..

    Stay away from most anything south of post if you have a family.... west side stuff is too far before you hit decent neighborhoods...

    Check out city-data forums, zillow.com, hotpads.com, padmapper.com, ahrn.com, housing one source, etc...

    Make sure you have a military clause in any lease you sign..

    Good luck!

    Just reread and saw that you're looking at apartments.... if you don't have family with you then you should be able to afford something closer to post.... I would look around the quarry off 281, Alamo heights, Terrell hills and Olmos park...

    Thank you for all the info. I've looked a lot of different apartments and some in alamo heights, and all the areas you mentioned. I don't know when I will need a place exactly but maybe you all will be able to help me with that.

    I will be attending BOLC in March i do believe and the will start school there starting in June. If I read correctly it states that if I am going to be 'permanently assigned to Ft. Sam' that I will not be provided lodging during BOLC. Is this true? The reason why I'm asking is because it looks like my wife and daughter will be staying back home until we sell our house and she finishes up the school year (my wife is a teacher). I want an area that is safe but not gonna break the bank. It looks like some are cheap and others are pretty pricey that are in the nicer areas I guess. I'm also assuming that living on post won't be an option. Thanks again for all the help, needless to say I am getting a little anxious about moving half way across the country, although I am still very excited.
