If you grew up in the W. Coast and got accepted to a school in the E. Coast

<p>Would you go?</p>

<p>For example, you live in California and got accepted to Harvard.</p>

<p>I hear that once you get situated and find a mate, you won't come back to California and so you'll rarely see your friends and family, leaving your whole past.</p>

<p>But then again, some people like to explore new places and get away from home</p>

<p>I live on the east coast, and I explicitly didn't apply to any schools on the west because I wanted to travel home every few weekends and breaks. I needed to get out of Jersey but stay on the coast lol.</p>

<p>After college though, I have no qualms about traveling. I actually anticipate eventually moving to California some time in my life.</p>

<p>I'm from TX going up north east for college (greater than 1500 miles away). I don't know, I really plan to come back because I'd love to live in the middle of nowhere TX, it'd be so nice, have my own little well, get a pet pig, some chickens to have fresh eggs, a horse or two just because. I also plan to come back to this city and help out, give, help fix up my school some. If I find a mate up there I hope he wouldn't mind coming down to TX for some time, I wouldn't mind going back up to his home, or just having two different houses, up north for the summer and south for the winter.</p>

<p>I'd never go to college in California. I don't have a problem with going far away; I considered and applied to schools in England, and, though I decided not to go there, I'm still going to be quite far from home. The West Coast, though, doesn't have the appeal to pull me to it.</p>

<p>West Coast for me doesn't seem like a college destination unless I already lived there.</p>

<p>I live in CA and I'm going to the midwest for college. I didn't apply anywhere on the east coast just because of weather concerns & such, but should I have found a really appealing school there, I wouldn't have passed up the opportunity to experience life on the other side of the continent.</p>

<p>^The midwest is, in many, if not most, areas, as cold as or colder than the east coast.</p>

<p>My parents say no, but I really want to move further up the east coast(Cambridge hopefully), or all the way to the west(Stanford or Pasadena). I want to leave and travel.</p>

<p>Personally, I'm going to try to go to England to visit next year with my school, and I for sure will be applying to Cambridge.</p>

<p>I'm from southern California and go to NYU, around 3,000 miles away from my hometown. Believe it or not, I didn't feel homesick at all. I love my school and New York a lot! I actually wish I was there now, haha. :P I'm the type of person who loves to explore different places and meet different people so choosing New York over staying here in SoCal was one of the best decisions I've ever made! :)</p>

<p>Where you want to live and where you want to go to college can be quite different things. I know several West Coast-ies who moved to the East Coast just for college and then moved right back.</p>

<p>I'd only go west coast for Stanford.</p>

<p>If I get accepted to Harvard? Hell yes I'd go there.</p>

<p>East Coast>>>>>>>>>>>West Coast :)</p>

<p>Yes, I would go back to the east coast! I love it there so much. **** the midwest.</p>

<p>I'm from the West and I go to Princeton, chosen over Stanford. </p>

<p>I could not wait to get out of the place where I lived; it was truly awful (though I am in the very small minority on that count). Not looking to ever go back, although not ruling it out.</p>

<p>If I found the school to be more preferable than the UC's and I could afford it, then I'd definitely consider going to the east coast.</p>

<p>I'm from California and I'm matriculating to Princeton. New experience. No biggie. :p</p>

<p>You're in my boat. Or plane, maybe.</p>

<p>I'm from CA and the only two out-of-state places where I'd want to go are:
- New York (NYU's too expensive, my stats aren't good enough for Columbia)
- Boston (may apply to Wellesley)
But mainly I'd like to take advantage of in-state tuition for UCs.</p>

<p>A lot of people in CA prefer either Northern California or Southern California; I personally prefer Northern just a little bit, but I wouldn't mind Southern.</p>

<p>I'm from Los Angeles, and I'm desperately looking for a ticket OUT of here. I can't STAND California. So, yes.</p>

<p>Midwest >> Either Coast</p>

<p>That is to say, people on either coast << Midwesterners.</p>

<p>It's hard to compare the coasts with each other because they both suck.</p>
