    Hey guys, I live up in flagstaff. I just applied with uofa police department. I was also looking at the real estate there, and DAMN it way cheaper then flag.

    So if i do end up getting the job, what are some of the best places to live? Close to campus? hotspots? And good hangouts?

    Ive only been to tuscon 1 time and that was like 10 years ago. Thanks for all the help.

    It is way cheaper to live down in Tucson. I had a 1BR/1Bath in FLG, I was paying $830/month. When I came down to Tucson, I could live in a 2BR/1.5Bath for about the same price.

    I have lived on the west side of Tucson in the student apts, it was great until I started getting serious about school, I became more focus. I live a block away from Tucson Mall, not too bad.

    You could live near campus, at the end of summer is when you can find a great place to rent out near campus. You could find a place along Mountain Ave. It goes straight to campus.

    TBH there's very few 'nice' area's to live in Tucson, unless you could afford the Catalina foothills/ Ore Valley area.... NW side isn't too bad, but downtown and south Tucson is a horrible place to be, imho.

    Fuckin' UofA PD!! They are HIGHLY incompetent 'tards (or at least used to be when I was doing my undergrad)... I hope you can change things if you join their squad.

    this is not my choice of police departments, but currently are the only police in arizona that are hiring, so i might take it if they give me an oppurtunity.

    Not once. But they are complete douchebags and should've really only been mall cops.

    I was just down in Tucson last weekend to visit UofA. Odds are I won't be going there unless I get some amazing scholarship. Most likely, I'll be at NAU. :cool: All depends on scholarships though.

    They are planning to do another tuition increase at the UofA. The increase is said to be about $2k for in-state undergrads.

    Yep. IIRC, it's the most out of the three major Universities.

    Haven't decided yet. I need to see what NAU offers and if they don't have anything within my intrests then I need to check out ASU.
