Have they indicated to you what Geisinger hospital you will be interviewing for? There are now 3 hospitals in the Geisinger system: main campus in Danville, Geisinger Wyoming Valley outside Wilkes-Barre and Geisinger Community Medical Center in Scranton.

If your main concern is the quality of public schools, you need to buy a home within a district with a top notch rating and plenty of academic competition; for Scranton it's Abington Heights, for Wilkes-Barre it's Dallas Area or Crestwood Area and for Danville it's Lewisburg Area or Loyalsock Township S.D.

The best Catholic high school in the area is Scranton Prep, but I understand that the yearly tuition is around $10,000.

Exeter does get a little congested but they have the lights time pretty good so it's not that bad. It's a 5 minute drive to either of the two bridges in West Pittston and the drive to the bridge in Wyoming isn't much longer. The back road which will take you to Luzerne is much less congested. Easy access to the Back Mountain, you can get to Tunhannock faster than you can from WB. It's not exactly a traffic hell hole.
