Thinking about moving to San Diego in a year?
Can I have some input on it? Good places to live etc. My boyfriend is graduating with his bachelors in biomedical engineering next spring. Would it be a good place for someone looking for a job associated with biomed engineering? I would be finishing my last year of college at SDSU. We would be coming from Arizona.

One of the great things about living in San Diego is that it's close to any type of environment. If you drive a few minuets South, you're in Mexico.
