If you are planning to move to Texas before you get jobs, and rent for a year, then I would suggest picking somewhere right in the middle with good freeway access. Your best bet would be zip code 75240. You have access to the following freeways: 635, I-75, George Bush Toll (east-west), and Dallas Toll (north-south). Plus it is very central.

Here is a great site for seeing what zip codes meet your needs.

DO NOT LIVE IN THE 75240 ZIPCODE!!!!!!!!! OMYGOSH! NO!!!!!!!!!!
Besides, that is not a true residential area at all. It is home to TWO shopping malls (the Galleria and Valley View) and many office buildings, a car dealership, lots of apartments (and some that are VERY low end that have a problem w/ crime) and then there is ONE small residential neighborhood, Northwood Hills.

That's so funny, I never thought about Dallas in relation to zip codes. They cover too big of an area to be useful to me.

I used to know them by heart when there were not as many. Sad. Some of them I'll never forget. But this one, 75240, LMAO!!! HAHAHAHAHAHAAAAA, I'm sorry that was just toooooo darn funny. Here are the boundries to that zipcode: On the south is LBJ, north is Spring Valley, east is 75-Central and west is Dallas North Tollway. Yep, GREAT place to live.

I totally agree with you. There used to be some nice apartments in that area, but it seems they've gone WAY downhill over the past few years.

The apartments over by Valley View are so run down. Another area to avoid is Northeast Dallas off Forest Lane. The area along Forest Lane Between Skillman and Hillcrest is pretty bad, particularly @ Forest and Audelia. Used to me a nice area in its day.
