I would suggest Atlanta, Durham (or Raleigh), Houston, or Dallas (Not Austin, it's getting pricey)

Raleigh-Durham is a great fit. Dallas or Houston also. Maybe try Huntsville, Alabama as well? I don't know much about it but people seem to like it.

If you are concerned about Nashville's job market the education level of the residents, you will definitely not be happy in Florida. Most cities are sort of a worse version of Nashville on both levels.

I know people they moved and told me it tottaly depend on the empolyee sometimes they agree tp give u in state tution sometimes not there is no rule about that for permanent resident like my case.

But can I ask you question
Does Durham has dangerous hurricane? Because that what makes me concern moving there. I read about NC hit by hurriecan a lot too but I like what you said about their weather. That's exactly what I'm lookin for about weather.
Thanks again I'll consider it back to my list
Durham is in the Piedmont region of NC (i.e., the middle, west of the coastal plain). The parts of NC that usually get the hurricanes are along the coast. That isn't to say Durham and RTP are never hit, it's just unusual when they do. Climate change may have a long-term impact on this, but for now at least hurricanes aren't an issue for Durham.

Maybe focus in more on good job markets for your field, using the locations people have mentioned. Then, post in the forums for those cities for more localized feedback and information, to fine-tune the results.

Good post.

Nashville is a perfectly good place which is up and coming and will probably be one of the leading growth markets in the US for the forseeable future.

In general it's always a good idea to move to a place than from a place if you know what I mean OP. It sounds very much like you are moving from someplace (something?) at this moment. Moving for the sake of moving is seldom a good idea in terms of economics or relationships. A lot of times when people move they are moving from themselves and changing scenery won't magically improve your life. I'm guilty of having done this myself.

We would need a lot more information about you and your aspirations, interests and limitations to give you quality advice. Better defined goals and criteria would help you make a better informed decision.
