    Where should I move after graduation?

    I'll be graduating from college in 2 months, and I don't know what to do. No grad school, not looking to embark on a career pathway yet, and no significant other to dictate (or even suggest) what to do or where to go. I would like to move, though. I'm in Berkeley, CA now.

    Ideas?

    This question is way to vague unless you mention some things you are looking for.

    Cost of living a concern?
    Activities you enjoy?
    What your degree/career field is/will be?
    Big City or Small town person?
    Beach/Ocean important?

    Stay there. You won't like the real world.

    I know that's not very helpful. If I had to sum up what with this move, I would say this:

    I want to 'go back to zero.' Be in a new place with new people and under new conditions and see what happens.

    I'd recommend Mexico City, based on your answers. Cities don't come much larger than that.

    The best idea would probably be somewhere that will give you a steady job, and a pay scale you can go for.

    If you aren't moving to get to an area where there is more of some activity you love, some person you love or decent career prospects, then why do you want to move?

    Do you want to move just to move? That's pretty silly.

    The high crime rate is mostly from their football team.

    But if he wants to move just for the sake of moving, then going to Oakland is easy!

    It sounds like you are not looking for a place, but a change. Maybe try changing yourself.

    That's what I was kind of getting at....trying to be more subtle about it though.

    Well he lives in the Bay area. If you can't meet a good group of friends there he is going to have problems anywhere.

    There are very few places in this country that are easy to meet new friends. Most places in this coutry are rather insular, and meeting new friends is tough.

    It is easier to get accepted into a medical school than it is to be accepted in the "Peace Corps".

    Peace Corps/med school = apples/oranges. They like people with backgrounds in farming, business, health, education, the sciences, stuff like that. It's kind of varied.

    Anyway, agree to disagree. Back to the topic at hand.
