Actually, just to clarify, that was 30K anually, most of which was grants. So he didn't have a whole lot to pay back in terms of loans. Eventhough UT and Austin are great, I'd much rather have stayed in the Bay Area and gone to UC Berkley. But I didn't even bother applying there, which I regret now. I f***in' love California (the Bay Area, not Southern CA/Orange County/LA), and UCB is [obviously] a pretty good school.
EDIT: How the hell did I forget to mention the obvious? The EDM scene over there is infinitely better than Texas, unless you know about some underground scene here that I'm not aware of. Does it even exist ?

"First they came for the communists, and I did not speak out— because I was not a communist;
Then they came for the socialists, and I did not speak out— because I was not a socialist;
Then they came for the trade unionists, and I did not speak out— because I was not a trade unionist;
Then they came for the Jews, and I did not speak out— because I was not a Jew;
Then they came for me— and there was no one left to speak out for me." -Martin Niemöller
