for SUNY schools take a look at Binghamton, its engineering program is on par with Clarkson/RPI/RIT but it is actually harder to get into binghamton's watson school of engineering than it is to get into any of the private schools i mentioned above
"The most merciful thing in the world, I think, is the inability of the human mind to correlate all its contents. We live on a placid island of ignorance in the midst of black seas of infinity, and it was not meant that we should voyage far. The sciences, each straining in its own direction, have hitherto harmed us little; but some day the piecing together of dissociated knowledge will open up such terrifying vistas of reality, and of our frightful position therein, that we shall either go mad from the revelation or flee from the deadly light into the peace and safety of a new dark age."

Good luck it can be a ***** in socal, greatest paintball place ever though. You might wanna try the valley, it can be way cheaper than being near the coast and you are pretty much surrounded by fields its about an hour drive can get you to any field anywhere, a lot are closer than that sc is about an hour though.

:edit: It depends what part of the valley and I actually have no clue how much apartments are, certain areas can be really really expensive too so choose wisely.

a semi decent house (2-3 bedrooms) where i live (30min from SD and about a mile from the beach) is like $1200 a month for rent, not including gas or utilities. you can find better though.

gas is floating around a little above $2 a gallon, some places are cheaper but very few are.

there are more jobs than you can shake a stick at.

insurance is all realative isn't it?

Wow... I thought Cali was supposed to be expensive. The prices you guys list are nothing compared to Boston.

That does it I'm moving.

Boston's expensive because it's a college town and there are a **** load of young people looking for off-campus housing.

Mainly I want to move near San Diego because I want to get the hell out of this cold stuff and that area is like the mecca of paintball. So what I'm asking it bascially how much to 1 bedroom apartments go for, is car insurance insainly high like New York's and are there alot of jobs out there for a 19 year old.

same plans when i get done with school

i cant wait

I'll show you based off my expenses (everything is monthly):

Car: $406
Insurance: $300
Phone: $80
Food: $40 (Jack in the Box has $0.99 burgers that are good but you must excercise or else you'll get fat).
Bills: $500 total
Left over: $74

That is with a job that pays $7.25 an hour. At $10+, you can easily live a comfortable life. These are my expenses that I'll have to deal with in the next few months. Don't worry, you can do it. Just don't expect to ball much unless you get a good job. Try working at a supermarket. They pay roughly $15 an hour.

Just to add on, the car is an '05 'Stang and the insurance provider is the same one my mom is using. I'll find out which it is. Progressive is incredibly cheap so you can use that as well. Consider getting a motorcycle license. Bikes are $8000 and get 30+ miles a gallon and hold roughly 10 gallons. Insurance is about $300 on them too. Just my 2 cents.
