I'm from NY and lived in Boston for a while so I'm familiar with the Northeast and Minnesota is a pretty big contrast from our area. I spent a few months there on a consulting project and found it to be too quiet and too slow for me compared to New York and Boston.
I really would like to visit but I won't be able to take the time off work unfortunately. Is Minneapolis/St. Paul like this or just the rest of MN? I would think any city has some sort of bustling atmosphere.
You definitely shouldn't go to Minnesota without visiting.
I have lived in Minneapolis and the East Coast. I think Minneapolis is a great area and has some bustling areas like Uptown and Warehouse district, but it is still very different from NYC/DC.
As far as friendliness of people, I think in Minneapolis people are very friendly, but people in MN and MPLS settle down and have families a lot earlier in life than in Chicago and East Coast. I think that leads to people sticking with HS and college friends more.
But this is all moot. $130k is still too expensive for Minnesota and if you want to be a PD you should go to school somewhere that you know you want to live. So retake and reapply if this is your best option right now
