It's becoming increasingly clear that the OP asks questions, shoots down responses with secondhand hyperbole and reasons why the recommendations aren't good enough, which may I point out has been an ongoing theme among their many threads posted in varying areas of the country (outside of the "paradise" known as Hartford, CT). If y'all want to continue to take the bait, go for it...otherwise, do yourself a favor.

Wrong. I just happen to be more cautious and critical of things.

I would NOT call Louisville and Cincinnati particularly welcoming to newcomers, based on personal experience.

Maybe more of the smaller college cities like Bloomington, IN, Urbana/Champaign, IL, Columbia, MO, Madison, WI, and Ann Arbor, MI would fit the bill?

I'm native to the Hartford, CT area, which is technically part of BosWash, but it just ain't the same as being along the I-95 corridor. Ever since I moved down to Fairfield County, CT (near NYC), everything is MUCH more fast paced, people are more brash, Type A's and I can't stand it. I don't fit in at all and cant wait to leave. It's too sophisticated for me.

So, let me ask you this. How does central Connecticut (particularly the Hartford area) compare to most Midwestern metro areas? I mean, are people in Hartford County really that much more brash than Midwestern people? Because, Hartford County is MUCH simpler, slower and laid back than the NYC or Boston areas. It's more "middle class" and "normal," which I prefer. I mean, drivers NEVER honk their horns around there, like you would experience in the NYC or Boston areas, among other things.
I have lived outside Boston. So I get it. All I can tell you is to start visiting places. For instance, I hate Pittsburgh. But love everything north of I-80. Ohio I found particularly pleasant. I used to want to live in the big cities and have changed on that. I am finding the small cities much more enjoyable.

There are so many small college towns, not the ones always on those lists, that are really cool places to live.
