Places aren't boring and unappealing. People are. People who are always complaining that there's "nothing to do" are people that will be miserable wherever they are. Engaging and interesting people can be happy no matter where they are. I've had the good fortune to live in some exciting locales and some (to a gloomy pessimist) unappealing ones. The personality of the individual has far, far more bearing on their overall happiness than the number of "things to do."
What awesome experiences are you anticipating at a "prestigious" school that aren't available to a resident of WV?
+1 I've never been to WV, but this statement is 100% correct.
Some places to live are simply shitty. Like where I live, for example. Everyone my age here is divorced with three children already and thinks Obama is a Muslim trying to indoctrinate our kids with subliminal communist propaganda.
Some places are just so horribly, horribly boring and shitty that everyone with the talent or oppportunity to leave has already done so.
