Any Kaiser students out there?
- 0Feb 13, '06 by ICUDOUCME?Hi Kaiser students. Can anyone tell me where to live in the Pasadena/LA area that has good freeway access and is more or less centrally located so as to make life easier as a Kaiser student?
Are there tricks to getting around for your clinicals? I interviewed last week and I am hopeful that I will start this Fall. I have started looking at the clinical locations on maps and trying to figure out a safe and relatively central location...any hints would be appreciated. Thanks!
- 0Feb 14, '06 by rubin777I am currently a first year SRNA in the KPSA program. I moved to Pasadena when the program started earlier this August with my wife. I personally think its worth living in Pasadena. Its a great place to live with lots of fun stuff to do. I currently live right across the street from the school and I believe its worth every penny, especially your first semester. You will be in the lecture hall all day five days a week. But its your choice. After the first semester it really doesn't matter because you will drive all over southern california. For example, my first rotation is currently in san diego:spin: , I am there three days a week and the school funds the hotel and free food at the cafeteria at the hospital(not a bad deal). If you need any help please feel free to contact me. Try www.craigslist.com. Plus if you're single there is a "KPSA HOUSE" were some of the class stays(about 5) and people are always moving in and out. the letter should be arriving at the end of feb. or early march.

I will be dissapointed if I don't get in but I know it's not outside the limits of possibility! Especially given the caliber of the competition. Thanks for the link and I'll keep you posted.Doing a little early apartment hunting? Your interview must have went really well. Have you tried here http://losangeles.craigslist.org/
Thanks for the advice Rubin777. If I get in, I'll look into it. I saw a nice apartment building across from the school and I figured it's probably pretty steep, being attached to the mall and everything...
