I am in the same boat sending applications ect. I live right outside of Atlantic City so Stockon is a little too close to home for me. But for others Stockton is nice. It is a little smaller but there are many different surf options only 20 minutes way. A lot of kids do leave on the weekends though. Even though I have been to stockton a few times already. Also I sent applications to URI and UNCW so we will see how that outcome is Rhode Island is a pretty sick place and my friends really enjoy it up there.
