Thank you so much, that helps me out I am trying to decide between O.S. and Atlanta, the rent seems about the same as it is Atlanta...
I have lived in both Atlanta (in the mid-eighties) and Ocean Springs, MS., in my lifetime. Rents in Atlanta in 1985 were pretty high back then, and that was 24 years ago! However, the experience of living in Atlanta was pretty good. There's quite alot of culture and many good restaurants and clubs. Traveling in and out of Atlanta is pretty easy, but traveling inside the city is easier done on the MARTA system (trains and buses) as parking is astronomical there.
Ocean Springs is a pretty small town. It's a cute place. We lived there for about 5 years and bought a home there, which we sold just after hurricane Katrina. There's the one hospital only.
If I were young and had to choose, I'd choose Atlanta without question. You'll have more opportunities there as there are many hospitals.
It depends on your personality and your goals for learning, as well as what you like to do in your leisure time. Ocean Springs would be the safe choice, obviously.
