This is going to be quite serious and kind of smug, so I will apologize in advance. Have you been to NYC, Ann Arbor is like a small NYC. Many things to do, many restaurants and like living in the village. Crafts and arts are abundunt. So you dont like that kind of stuff, ok, Detroit is an hour away. Too dangerous, ok, Chicago is a bit further away but good driving distance for a weekend.
Summer can get quite hot and the winter can get quite a cold, but the divergence in weather is refreshing. Fom my time as a student in A2, the only thing i didnt like was sundays. It was fairly dead, but when i went around and visited Detroit and Nashville and Atlanta, sundays were just as laid back. NYC was just different.
But, you can do anything in A2, everything is pretty much right there, but it compares to a liberal northern town. Leaving A2, and it does change. There is a reason why A2 is one of the top places to live.
As for the girls, every school has some good ones and not so good ones. With the population being around 36k when i was in school, you can find plenty of them. FSU has better looking chicks for sure.
