    I am thinking of relocating to Atlanta. I am interested in Grady because I would like to work in the burn unit there and eventually go on to get my masters specializing in dermatology. Can anyone tell me anything about good areas near there to live and the commute? Also, I have a 6 year old son the the quality of the school he will be attending is of UTMOST importance to me. Any opinions will be appreciated! <=
