    Anyone have any tips on getting to UCSD from the San Diego Airport? Shuttles to take? Where to go? What building?

    Sandiego is way small. YOu can go through the city a couple times within a half hour. It is right in La Jolla, if you tkae a cab it should be no prob. The med school building is easy to find. I went there this summer. If your driving just head toward la jolla .. pretty sure you get on the I 5 and there are signs and turn offs all over the place. IT is the I 5 that takes you to L.A.. it isas your exiting the city, the turnoffs for UCSD are there.. cant missem..

    From the airport, take I-5 North.

    Exit on Gilman Ave/La Jolla Colony

    Take a left off of the exit on Gilman Dr.

    Gilman drive runs directly into the main campus of UCSD. You'll see signs for the medical center there.

    While you're there, if you have time, check out Windansea beach. Go in the morning (9:00) or in the afternoon (4:00) if you can, and you'll see what the true local nature of San Diego/La Jolla is (lots of cool people who gather together in a hut in front of the best wave in southern california)

    Enjoy. It's the best city in the country
