My son is chief resident (ED) at Shands Gainesville, so I have given this some thought some 3 years ago.

As we really don't know the future, it could be better or it could be worse, I would think renting is going to be your best bet. To cover the cost of closing on a new home, and the expense of selling the home when you head off to Fellowship or your first paying job, you would need about 7 to 10 years in the home for it to pay you to buy.

If I can help please let me know, I can't help you with homes in Jax area as its out of my area of knowledge but other stuff I may be of help.
