Default Is NC overrated?

In a word, no, but then, this is rather like asking chocoholics if chocolate is overrated. A vanilla-lover might think so, definitely.

There is much to draw a person to NC, but only you can be the best judge of how much you'd like living here. Come spend a vacation here, if you like to r-e-l-a-x -- try the beaches or the mountains, and then let us know what you think.

Pardon my ignorance, but what does WCPSS stand for?

Wake County Public School System. It's the school system for Raleigh, Cary, and some other communities within the Triangle, although it is far from being the only public school system serving the Triangle area.
