So what is the salary of computer-science majors in Dallas, or Austin, or San Jose? Its a lot higher than in Little Rock, right? Also, what is the quality-of-life index in San Jose? Any professional sports teams to go see after work in the Bay Area? How about restaurants to spend that salary at, any good eats in San Francisco, or Austin? What about schools for the little ones, do they have any good schools in Austin or the Bay Area? Rather have your kid go to U of A or Stanford? You see, when folks work hard for a tough degree like computer science, and then get a job paying the big bucks, often they want other quality-of-life advantages. If you get sick, do hospitals in central Arkansas compare with those in Palo Alto? How about internet broadband availability, does Conway compare to Palo Alto? Little Rock, I think we have a problem.
