  •  Texas and Texas A&M are. (0+ / 0-)

    Texas Tech's not bad, either.

    Last I looked, people were moving away from California, especially the educated professional workers you'd like to have in high tech industries.

      Apple, Facebook, Universal, Genentech, Amgen, Google etc... didn't arise in CA accidentally. The confluence of environment, society, education etc... is not something which can be replicated elsewhere, especially in Texas.

      BTW - CA's population is growing.

        People are also being born in California and people are immigrating in from other countries, especially Mexico.

        California's population has been growing by less than 1% annually because more people are leaving California for other states than are coming to California from other states.

        More babies, more poor immigrants coming in, more educated professionals moving out.
