I am a senior in high school and I realize that college might be the best opportunity, and the only opportunity, for me to leave the state I'm in (Arkansas) and so far I'm having trouble figuring out where, exactly, I want to stay. I guess what I'm looking for is a state with good education, a state that isn't that expensive (I lived in D.C. back in the 90s ) and a state that has a lot of recreational activities. I don't particularly enjoy severely hot weather but I'll deal with it, in the case of Florida and Texas. I'm already slightly slanted towards Florida, because I have family there. (and since out of state tuition is so expensive compared to in-state, i'm considering going to junior college for two years, getting residency, and going to university as a transfer student on in state tuition) At this moment, I plan on being a social worker, psychology, or a scientist.

So, yeah, that's my spill. Although I listed out specifics state if you want to, you can suggest some states you want me to look into as well.

I would much rather live on MO than FL. MO has 2 big cities while FL is one of the most uninteresting states in the country. FL is where all the lowlifes in the northern states funneled down to.

Oh come on...this is a high school senior looking for real advice, not a forum for you to vent your hatred of Florida. Get a grip.

If you have family somewhere, then that's a good start. I guess choosing which state really depends more on what school you're interested in attending and what you plan to major in. That might be a better place to start.
