So I'm going to graduate school and I'm not sure where would be the ideal place to be while I'm studying. I have opportunities to go to school in all these places. Southern California I would most likely be around the Newport Beach area. Northern California around Palo Alto/ Los Altos. And in Colorado most likely Boulder. SO with that in mind, I don't really have a lifestyle preference. I would pick up whatever activity the people there do... i.e. surf in so cal, snowboard/ski in colorado, do whatever in nor cal. So my question is... what do you think would be best for a grad student who wants a good place to meet people and just having a good time while going to school.

tl;dr where should I go for grad school (socal, norcal, colorado)

because we're talking grad school, not undergrad, i would go to the school with the highest rated program regardless of location. you'll be there for less than two years and you'll be studying so much you probably won't have time for much else. (full disclosure: i did not go to grad school, but i do have quite a few friends and family who have, so i base my opinion on that)

Palo Alto because you would be around more like-minded people (educated individuals).
