Before getting into your questions, I think some schools are different in that some don't send you into clinical right off the bat. *FROM WHAT I'VE HEARD* Nova students don't go to the hospital at all until the second year? (correct me if I'm wrong anyone) but here at South they ease you into the hospital right from the beginning which is nice! (example: right now as 2nd quarter's we go in twice a week from 6am-12pm)
1. They have about 50-60 rotations sites, about 30-40% are in Georgia, the rest are spread out into other AA states (only a couple in Florida, a few in Texas and none in Colorado yet though). From what I've heard you basically get to go wherever you'd like because there are so many sites and only 24 students *AND* if you have it in with some hospital or wherever you live/work/shadow with now you can work it out with them to have a rotation even though it's not officially a rotation site.
2. South's campus is pretty decent, it's clean and gets the job done.
3. Savannah, Georgia...I'm really disappointed in the rent situation here. Near the school, there are only shit apartment complexes that are too expensive for what they are (mine is ~1100 and it's just eh). And all of the nice apartment complexes are downtown and super expensive although you can find a roommate within the class to reduce cost
4. The hospitals here in Savannah have a lot of AA's and are always looking for AA's as far as I can tell. I haven't really felt like the market is saturated other than in Atlanta maybe? but that's just by looking at gaswork.com and not really hearing much/probing the anesthetists about it that I work with. Also, you usually build a network with the rotation sites you go to so you're not tied down to the specific area that the school is at obviously
