I am moving to Jackson Mississippi this summer to the Univ. of Miss. Medical School for a research position. I would really appreciate any info and suggestions on the best places to stay in Jackson (I dont have any idea of where the counties like Hinds and Pearl etc are located and what are they like). Also the payscale for a research fellow isnt that great and so what would be the living expenses like in the place as well. Im looking for a safe, clean and convenient neighborhood, with safety being the first priority at a walking distance from the medical school or at the most within 3 - 5 mi. I can out in a maximum of $700- 800$ as rent and am open to sharing with anyone as well (Im single 29yr old male from India). Anyone from Jackson or those who have been to Jackson please do try and provide me with some info on some of the stuff.
