As match day is approaching (3 more weeks people) more and more people have been quizzing me on our choices, our chances, our hopes for where we will end up.  We have been exceptionally lucky in the fact that we loved many programs, 13 of which we loved enough to rank.  That is a little overwhelming for people so they often ask about our top five.  I'll mention (usually trying to avoid any particular order) Texas, Ohio, Utah, Michigan, and Indiana.  All of these places we have heavily invested in finding affordable housing, good school districts, and pricing out moving cost.  I mentioned to someone recently that while looking at Houston Texas I was overwhelmed with how affordable it it.  This house is a perfect example

6 Bedrooms, 4 Bath, 3596 square feet, built in 2004.  Asking 230,000.  (Just so you know we are looking for something far more modest.)  I teasingly said, "I don't know why more Mormons aren't moving to Texas."  And then the person I was talking to said, "Well the problem with Texas is you'd have to be so close to Mexico."  Cue awkward moment.  People you have a right to whatever opinion you want, but if you're talking to someone who looks like me, you might want to filter. :)
