In case any new students are interested in renting options (or current students looking to move), there are some great houses for rent here http://www.tulsapm.com/
The site lists three in Jenks (two in our neighborhood, Churchill Park) for $1200 - a great deal considering most houses rent for $1400+ here. The neighborhood is absolutely wonderful - safe and very quiet. It's about 15 minutes from school in no traffic and 20 minutes during rush hour (right off of I-75).
We rented a tiny apartment our first year and were so burned out on the lack of space that when our house back home FINALLY sold (1 year + on the market), we then bought a house and long story short, it burned and we are buying another. If I had it to do over again, I would rent, rent, rent!!! All the joys of home ownership, without the pain of getting a loan or trying to sell it when you go into residency! :) (We made double house payments the first year of med school - it nearly killed us waiting for our old home to sell).
I just wanted to share!
