I am not sure how to answer this since over the last eleven years I have attended college in three different states and when I go to grad school, that will definitely be in another state. I have yet to specifically move to a state because of school so whether I stuck around after graduation does not apply because what I wound up doing had nothing to with it anyways.

I enjoy going to school, but I was always a commuter student and never cared for any school activities unless free food was involved. I attended college with some of my friends, but other then that I thought that college life and college parties were moronic. If I were to look back and pick the best four years of my life, chances are that I was in college during that time frame, but it was my experiences out-side of college that made them memorable, not college itself (and yes, I did party like a rock-star).

I am one of those weird breed of people who actually go to college for the education. All of the socializing and events could be fun, I suppose, but my take on it was that it was just high-school all over again.

Went to college in Missouri, left the state for internships a few summers, moved to Texas for grad school to go to a good program and live somewhere new, who knows where I will end up next....
