We'd prefer to be in the country but not too far from the city. Also, with 2 young children, good schools are also important.
If you are going to attend UNC I suggest also looking at cities in the triangle (Raleigh, Durham area). Mebane wouldn't be too bad but Mooresville to Chapel Hill would be a long commute.

I lived in Mooresville and its not very countryish. I was looking for a countryish place to live in NC when I moved down there a couple years ago, but ended up in Mooresville because the schools are so good. But Mooresville wasn't much different for me from Long Island where we came from..only the traffic is much worse, if you can imagine that! But Mooresville is a great area with lots to do and lots of places to eat, crappy police protection, but great schools!
