Default State with best public universities (other than California)

We all know that California has the best public universities of and state. The real question is which state is next. Feel free to tell us where you went to school and your overall impression as well as why you chose that state

I went to Texas A&M @ College Station and I was very glad to go there

I think UVA, at some point, was ranked the best state school in the country.

Yes, either UVA, Berkeley ar Michigan @Ann Arbor

I think it is pretty close between Michigan, NC, Texas and PA overall

PA has Penn Sate and U of Pittsburgh which are very good.

I think there is a 4 way tie for second beween these 4 states but I would like to hear others opinions

It is always nice that they are spaced out like that so studnets don't have to travel too far (unless a specific program is only offered in one school that is further away)

Yep...there is a UNC campus in every corner of the state. Chapel Hill offers everything under the sun, and the larger campuses like East Carolina, Appalachian, Greensboro, and Charlotte offer almost everything that Chapel Hill offers.

NC State and NC A&T are the engineering schools
NC State is the only veterinary school
Chapel Hill has the only schools of pharmacy and dentistry
East Carolina and Chapel Hill are the two medical schools
