Should I go to college out of state? or stay in state?

ok. here's the deal.... I will be going to college in 2 years when I graduate high school.I live in Houston Texas. I don't know for sure what I want to major in but I am interested in being a nurse(I volunteer at hospitals in the medical center). I have been looking into going out of state for college because I am tired of Texas. places I am considering: in no particular order Salt lake city, Utah Las Vegas, Nevada Denver, Colorado Seattle, Washington NYC Boston , Massachusetts Phoenix , Arizona somewhere in California Portland, Oregon Anchorage, Alaska I want to move out of state because I want to be independent and I want to explore different places and live in different places. I don't want to end up like those people who are afraid to leave the place they have lived their entire life. I will be hopefully graduating college in 6-7 years (counting the two left in high school) so I hope the job market will be better. If I go to college in state I will probably stay in Houston or go to Dallas, I would be going to Dallas for their nursing program and would hopefully get a job at parkland hospital and if I stay in Houston I want to get a job at somewhere in the medical center.( hopefully) So what do you guys think I should do? Did any of you guys move out of state for college?why?.......Did you stay in state for college ?why? Please help me I need advice? any input would be greatly appreciated. Also If it affects anything....I am home schooled and I have been since 8th grade. I am in the 10th grade now.

I'm an eighth grader in Maryland. Already, I have pretty much decided that I don't want to go to U of MD. I am thinking of maybe Bennington (VT), or some college up northeast like that. There are some advantages to staying in your own state for college, like being close to home and your family. On the other hand, you... More
