    Medical School tuition in Texas ranges only 12 to 15k per year. But I'm pretty sure that's minus living expenses, books, etc. But that's still incredibly cheap compared to the 40k/year stories you see all the time. Texas may be a hot state, but it's also a cheap state lol from college tuition to food/gas prices. I love it here!

    Are there any other states that have low (in-state) tuition rates like this?

    Don't you just love Texas! I took a trip to Washington D.C. with my family and just got back yesterday. Gas there was $4.99 compared to the $3.49 in Texas! No way in hell I'd ever stay up north!

    Very true. I'm digging this significantly cooler weather here in Chitown. I think in Dallas they're up to ~40 days straight of 100+ temperatures. :eek:

    Yeah, it's been around 100 for the last few days here as well. The summer's here aren't usually this bad. Some crazy extreme weather. If last year was a good indication, I'm hoping for a blizzard this winter.:D

    I saw a story on the news last night about air conditioning units being stolen, in broad daylight, from the sides of houses in Texas... The heat is driving people mad apparently.

    Lol Gas is Oklahoma is 3.21 on average. But the medical schools here, (both M.D. at OU and D.O. at OSU) are rather expensive. Just regular schooling at one of these universities cost around $16k not including living and food or if you party, then party expenses. (Good perk for being me is I rarely party. $$$$!!!) :cool:

    I take it you haven't experienced winter in Chicago? Enjoy freezing your face off for 5 months of the year.
