I can't live anywhere I don't like and it seems to me that I would like Louisiana. I hate Florida and got bored in North Carolina, which is a very pretty state. I live in Colorado now, and other than California, Hawaii, the keys, and the Carribean - think that that and places in the Rocky Mountain west would be the best for me.

Any thoughts on this.

Hey Cutter, looking at your posts, it looks like you want to go almost everywhere for Grad School! What exactly do you want? Obviously the best thing to do would be to get info from the schools that you really want to go to. Then you can check community info for each town. I think if you just throw out blanket questions on each state's message board, you will not get the specifics you will need to make an informed decision. Good luck!

LSU pros:
(1) It's a nationally recognized university
(2) Close to NO
(3) party school
(4) Top 10 football team
(5) football tailgating is a religion here

Cons:
(1) Rent has soared since Katrina
(2) Louisiana doesn't do a good job supporting higher ed

You might want to consider the high temps in the summer. It could be a little uncomfortable for someone who has not been exposed to the temps. High humidity and breeding of annoying insects makes those midsummer nights intolerable. Though Baton Rouge is still not New Orleans and New Orleans is still not recovered Grad School would seem to me more comfortable in another state. Perhaps one who cares about protecting and providing for its scholars in an attempt to create and store intellectual capital would be more suitable.
