Dallas

< BACK to CDI TOOL
The Dallas-Fort Worth-Arlington region, sometimes referred to as The Metroplex, is the top-ranked Texas location among our largest metros. Its ninth place is due to strong economic conditions, reflected in a relatively low ranking on youth unemployment and even lower ranking on rents. Not only will students find Texan charm but also a slew of professional opportunities once they are ready to enter the workforce. Dallas ranks in the middle of the pack for demographics and low for quality of life. Students will either need a car or a roommate or friend with one, since the city is nearly inaccessible otherwise.
