La Grange. Easy commute.

I'd heed the advice that's been given. La Grange is an active town with a vibrant core, and you'll have ability to enjoy yourselves during down time. Metra and easy access to the city are perks too.

I m looking at La Grange since day 1. I just need to find a place that suits my budget now. Are there any GOOD apartment complexes around there?

The problem is that you have some rough city neighborhoods to penetrate to get to Holy Cross Hospital, and the suburbs that are closest are just not that nice.

If you want a condo or townhouse style rental, you may have better luck looking in Indianhead Park, Burr Ridge, or the many suburbs with the name "Palos". None of those places are dicey.

I appreciate the help! We have decided on a move in date of 1 June.

Yup you right. My wife has of yet as she told me not signed anything with them. I thought she had. She just told them yes over the phone. The other hospital that is presence resurrection near O'hare will pay considerably low ---> ball park of 20k afaik but its an hourly position . Holycross is a salaried position. I just told her to chuck holy cross and go for presence even if it pays low. She will get more time to spend at home .Holycross wants her to work ie be on call every sunday plus 2 days a week for presence it is 1 day a week and a sunday every 5 days. If she is ready, we will have some nice options in Lombard,Downers grove,addison and other places. My uncle lives in Palos Park. Its a nice place tbh.

My Brother-In-law suggested Darien. He used to live there and he said its a nice place.
