Out of State Student (The South)

Hi! I’m a high school junior that’s about to start the application process.
Anyone know about the experiences of out of state students at Maine, or more specifically from the south since i’m from Texas? I go up to New England all the time since my family is from Boston so I’ve been raised a Red Sox and Patriots fan without a doubt. I don’t mind the cold weather either I know it’s a big step though I just want to hear the opinions from the students themselves.
