Arkansas would be in the lower portion of the Midwest...I wouldn't consider it the South.

I have never heard of Arkansas being part of the midwest. That is definately a new one on me!

i think it's usually thought of as "mid-south."

Arkansas is absolutely, unabashedly, 100% southern. Not midwestern whatsoever.

I think probably in between is closest to the truth given that Arkansas' eastern border is almost equally split between Tennessee and Mississippi.

Thanks for all the replies thus far....I'd appreciate more, especially with specifics regarding the listed states apart from Missouri or the Great Plains states, given that I've lived in Missouri my whole life, am not really interested in moving to states almost completely rural, and am looking to relocate to another Midwestern city besides St. Louis for either engineering or meteorology. If somebody can provide me with info regarding which cities/states in the Midwest besides Missouri and St. Louis are good places to live and work for aerospace engineers and/or meteorologists, that would really be appreciated. Keep the responses coming folks, thanks to all that have replied thus far

Do you mean you want to go to college to study engineering or meteorology? If so, look at Valparaiso U in Indiana. Supposedly one of the best meteorology schools around. Pricey, but they give good scholarships. Also have an engineering school. DD went there.

I completely agree. Valparaiso University does have a great meteorology program. I should know because I was in the meteorology program before I transfered to another University. They have a new state of the art building dedicated to the meteorology department.
