would like to know how you would go about running a migration from with
the rails project. I was thinking of doing it either in a model, or
shelling out to the command line and running it from there. Any
recommendations as to how you would go about accomplishing this?

And don't do it from "in a model". You are probably not discussing changing the database tables, on the fly, while the program runs.

Are you loading the application's preset data?
