seem like almost every topic on here gets turned into a Southern or not classification discussion.

Dallas feels like a cross between the west and the east. It didn't feel like Atlanta when I was there personally. Much different demographics as well.

Back to the OP...

I'd break each area down to the finite detail based around your likes and dislikes AND is this a temporary move or potential long term. The south in general is winning! especially Georgia (Atlanta), Texas and North Carolina if growth statistics are being followed.

Atlanta
Dallas
Houston
Jacksonville
Tampa
Raleigh
Charlotte
Austin
Nashville

Possibly-

Huntsville
Birmingham
Orlando

Well the OP just gave a a minimal description on where he wants to live in the South :
Quote :
"when i graduate, because of the warmer weather (I despise the cold), friendlier people, job opportunities, and more affordable living."

If he despise the cold he's going to have to eliminate Atlanta & Dallas with their ice storms on occasion.

As for what is Southern or not the OP also didn't define if he wanted to move into a culturally Southern city so out of the 4 major metros he would have to exclude Miami if that is his criteria.

Well being that the OP is focusing on states south of VA, I'm pretty sure he/she knows that lots of Southern cities get winter precipitation occasionally. If he/she is looking for year-round warm weather, they'd just go to south Florida or far south Texas and be done with it.

i also don't understand this fixation on 'culturally Southern city' classifications.
