    I just came back from a great interview at TUCOM-MI. If I get in, I would love to attend. I don't have a car, and I was wondering if it is possible to survive without one (is there any public transportation from the Island?) to get groceries and such.

    Also, if you live in the dorms, how are they? Are pets (fish or hamsters) allowed?

    Thanks!

    Hey,

    Not having a car is very tough in the Bay Area and on the Island. The public transportation is not ther greatest, outside of BART which at the moment does to go up that far north. Espicially when it comes time to rotations, having a car might be necessary. But congrats on a great interview. I will be there next fall too :)

    Good luck!

    You do not need a car for most parts of the Bay Area, but if you're going to live in Vallejo, you should DEFINITELY have one. Vallejo is not a particularly attractive part of the Bay Area, so you'll want to live from time to time to venture to other parts with more choice in movie theatres, concerts, restaurants, etc. and not having a car would hurt.

    First of all, congrats on the interview and good luck! Apply for the dorms as soon as you hear, because space is extremely limited, especially with 2 pharmacy classes. If you don't live in the dorms, you can't live without a car. The school is about 3 miles deep into the island and you'll go crazy. Or get a roommate with a car and bother him.
    I suppose you could take the ferry to/from SF and bike to school as a 3rd option...?
