Secondary education
Massachusetts offers exceptional college options from its highly regarded state system to a significant number of private colleges. Massachusetts is home to some prestigious schools, such as Harvard and MIT, as well as other highly regarded educational institutions. Colleges are primarily centered around Boston and Worcester, which has 10 colleges/universities. UMass Amherst, which is located in central Mass, is the state's flagship college among five different college locations. It is a highly regarded institution with a broad curriculum choice and does a substantial amount of research. the state's colleges/universities offer both a broad range of curriculums as well as specialized, such as pharmacy. Aside from CA, Mass is probably recognized as one of the country's best states for post high school education.

Massachusetts
Massachusetts, especially the Boston area, is a great place to live. Well over 50 colleges and universities within a 100 mile radius so the entire region is always changing with the new student population every fall. The challenge with the area is the cost of living which certainly is high. Housing drives the cost as well as utilities so if you are on a tight budget and you are not a student be prepared to scale back the size of your home or move way outside the city. Nevertheless, it's a great place to live especially in the summer months.

Berkshires
I have lived in the Berkshires since childhood! It's a beautiful place but times have changed and as you grow older you realize there is less here for you to experience! Well known for arts and theater the mountains and lakes are spectacular, but at this point in my life I'm looking for some honing different!

Boston
We have great...universities,hospitals,museums,dining,convenient public transportation,history,people look out for each other,right on the ocean,fresh seafood and lobstah..

Not so great...taxes,traffic,parking,rent/mortages,crime rates,homelessness,shopping,winter weather,potholes, triple deckers or houses practically on top of each other

Just my opinion..I'm 43 and was born and raised here..but looking for a change from the hustle and bustle of a major city..I'm a litle tired of the rat race and noise..ready for a porch and rocking chairs..:)

IF YOU'RE POOR MOVE TO MA!!
Great state to live in??? Anyone reviewing this state as a great place to live proves ignorance of people living here. Cost of housing totally out of control. Try to hire someone in this state for any services. Good luck if anything's done right!! Guess people out here are accustomed to accept poor workmanship on anything done. If something done to perfection, I always ask what state their from. So funny - NEVER from Massachusetts. State highways' median never groomed. Carolinas you see beautiful flowing flowers on your highways. As far as hospitality??? MA residents don't know the meaning of the word. Most rudest people out of any state I've lived in or visited. Great schools? For everyones info, yes, Harvard and MIT rated tops. Maybe because more than 50% applicants accepted not from MA. Know this for a fact - worked for a Harvard/MIT attorney who conducted the interviews. Grade schools and High Schools below par. Even in private schools - good luck. Teaching children how to tell time in 1st and 2nd grade?? Give me a break. If you are a working class person this is not the state for you. On the other hand, if you have nothing, this is the state for you. Free housing, foodstamps, medical, everything!!! Don't even have to be a citizen!! MA truly supports the whole MEDICAID system!! Come and get it - ordinary working person can't afford dental procedure but noncitizen can! State pays for it! As for someone mentioning Everett as a wonderful place to live??? Ah, is that why it's one of the most desirable places to put a casino? Doesn't that, in itself, tell it like it really is?? MA lovers - try a normal state. You wouldn't survive with you're great hospitality!! By the way, regarding private schools in MA, our great President Bush, George W., attended PHILLIPS ACADEMY in town next to me. Remember the Bushisms??? Ha, ha!!

Home Schooling Laws in Massachusetts
Can anyone answer: How favorable are the home-schooling laws in Massachux? I'm considering moving into the state, but not if they are hostile to homeschooling. Anyone have any experience with this matter?

Health Care
It's expensive but top notch. Universal health care made it much easier for me to decide start a business because I didn't have to worry about whether whether my family could actually get access to health insurance.

Just too much
Love Mas and the Berkshires. Culture, scenery, proximity to so many great things but a two person income here of $80,000 is almost poverty. Housing, utilities and lack of good paying jobs are crushing this state. Lived here my whole life but getting too expensive to stay. Sad!
