    I'm not a TX resident, but I have family there so I have a huge preference for the TX schools. My top choices would be anywhere in TX, after that it really is a toss up. I'm married so my preferences in order are:

    1) Tuition cost
    2) Caliber of school
    3) Opportunities for my spouse to find employment
    4) Cost of living in area

    Random observation: I interviewed at almost all of my top choices right off the bat and heard nothing from most of the safeties I applied to. No school is a safety school, it's all about fit.
