    I'm interviewing at Hopkins and want to get a handle on the housing situation there. I have already checked out the real estate market to know things can be steep. I have a school-age child and a husband who doesn't need to be close to any particular city. Any suggestions for a Baltimore suburb with good schools and housing where I can get more for my money? Or is Baltimore city an option in certain neighborhoods?

    Thanks for any feedback!

    I am a current ophthalmology resident at Hopkins and we've purchased a townhouse in Owings Mills; it's a great family-friendly area which is relatively safe as well as close to downtown. There is a metro that runs between Hopkins and Owings Mills (the last stop is literally inside JHU!). I don't know whole lot about the school situation, since we don't have kids yet. If you want more info feel free to PM me.

    Good luck!

    Communities south on I-95 have always been considered family friendly, with good schools and a relatively easy commute. Columbia, Ellicott City, and Elkridge come to mind first.
