    It's really nice and suburban but really expensive. Columbia, MD was listed as one of the most desirable places to live in the country by Money Magazine.

    They have a great mall, great 'towns', great schools and restaurants. I'd live there myself if I could afford it.

    I have no idea. I know that the hospital is part of the Hopkins health system. I would imagine that the rate is up there.

    It's $22.50 for a new grad.

    I live in Columbia. It is very nice, with the exception of a few neighborhoods. It is very expensive, though. I couldn't afford our house on my own. There are a lot of nice areas in the Baltimore metro area, though. I know a lot of relocating people who are shocked about the cost of living. Rents are $1200+. Townhouses are over $350k easy. SFH $350k, mostly $400k+.

    While we live here and like our house, I wouldn't limit myself to only the Columbia area when looking (if cost is an issue.) If you're renting, though, I'd probably stick to Columbia.
