All your questions are subjective.

The bigger the city the larger the opportunities, and the more competition for those opportunities.

Some school districts cover the entire county and others a small portion of the city. Good, best are all subjective.

Colorado School Grades for comparative ratings on schools.

Please find a job before moving, and yes tell everyone you're from OK.

Long-standing myth that Texans are taking over the state. I'm from here but spent 12 years in DFW. I've yet to pull the TX plates off my cars (because it's outrageously expensive to register a car here) and nobody's given me any grief.

They can't tell an Okie accent from a Texan accent if you speak just two RPM slower...it's good cover when around natives...

So not only will the people in Colorado dislike you because you're from Texas, they'll dislike you double because you lied about it???

I don't really care where people are from, but I would not like people lying about it. It is not that hard to tell an Okie from a Texan.

If you're a city lover, then there's really only one city and that's Denver.
From what I hear from friends, the job market on the Front Range is holding steady. Doesn't seem to be too bad, but not jumping either.

There's really only one place in Colorado that has any substantial job base and that's the Front Range: Colorado springss - Denver - Boulder.
