There was a post by someone before me who posted today. I didn't bring it up. They must have deleted their post. And yes, I have been to Texas. In that thread you're referring to I meant that it's a place that I wouldn't want to live in.

Couldn't have said it better myself

Well, for one thing, I've always thought it would be really cool to live in the UK. That's why I say I would want to live there than a lot of other areas of the country. If I couldn't live in NY, I would move all the way there. But that's just me. My dad would have done that too when he had lost his job a little while ago. He had a job offer in Houston where we would live comfortably there. He turned it down because the schools there are nothing like they are on Long Island, and his coworker friends who made the move regretted it and were moving back.

The best colleges to choose from to get a true college experience is Texas Tech, UT Austin, Texas A&M, Baylor, and a few others. Lots of Texas schools are commuter schools.
If you want the best academics. You choose Texas, Texas A&M, and Rice. If you want the best of both worlds, you choose any of the Big 12 schools.

Are you sure about that?
List the places in the US that you would not want to go to.

I'm not talking academics; I'm talking true college experience. Baylor is also a very good school, not on the same league as Rice or UT, but still a good school.

Yeah but there's more than just a few others though. You have quite a few in the North Texas area. You have quite a few in the San Marcos to San Antonio area. You have a few in the East Texas area. There are lots of colleges where you can get that true experience. So you need to take it the next step. Which school is best for you academically and which school offers your major the best. That's why you should choose a college. Not on experience.

True, but you won't find as many schools in Texas like in other states where the schools have lots of school spirit. I feel the best colleges where you can get the best of both worlds are usually located in much smaller cities.

Not necessarily true in all cases. I know you can get a great college experience in DC, Tucson, Los Angeles with UCLA and USC. You have to remember, even though they are located in huge urban environments, college campuses are basically cities or communities by itself with it's own fire department, it's own police department, it's own president, and etc. But again, I prefer urban environments so I maybe bias.
