I was hoping you could help me out. I was accepted to a graduate program at Illinois State, and I'm having a hard time deciding if I want to go there or my other top choice. If I go, FI (by then H) and I would be moving in August.
So, I guess I was wondering if you could give your thoughts on what it's like to live in the Bloomington-Normal area. What's the cost of living like there? I've looked it up, but just reading numbers makes it harder to put in perspective! How about employment? I'm worried about my FI being able to find a job. He's not afraid to take whatever he needs to. Any insight on that? Anything else (good or bad) that you'd like to tell me about it? I can google search all I want, but sometimes it's just nice to hear what actual people have to say!
Thanks so much!
