I live in Michigan with a husband, two kids and one on the way so I am hoping for somewhere around here. I really would like Flint, but DTW or PTK wouldn't be too bad either!
I live in South Bend, IN and am hoping for NC (RDU) or FL (DAB or TPA). Beyond that I've lived in most areas of the country and would take just about anywhere that is willing to hire me!
Tampa is full with trainees right now according to an ATM i talked to...
I was thinking about trying for DAB as well. Live in O-town but from what I hear, they're pretty stocked up on trainees
I grew up in Upstate New York, and am currently going to UND. I want to go to any facility in North Carolina to start out, but want to eventually get to Charlotte.

Wanted Indianapolis, had a choice between ZID and Indiana Terminal, so I chose ZID since it would guarantee I got Indianapolis. Level 12 pay aint bad either...well...when I actually get to that point
I live in GA and want to stay in Atlanta or try out Utah (since Im Mormon and single). And I'd like to go to Dallas, TX.
I just think those are big facilities and I'm sure it would be smarter to start off somewhere a little less busy. I'm sure I could move up to higher traffic facilities later. I just want to stay in a big city bc I am single. I dont want to end up in bumfu*k GA or something.
The "thats a bad idea" person in me would love to try out Hawaii. But I think I'd only like it there for a few years and then I'd want to, ummmm, go away.
There are several lower level facilities in Dallas / Ft Worth.
Meacham (Lvl 5) - by North Richland Hills
Alliance (Lvl 5) - NW of South Lake
Addison (Lvl 6) - just North of Dallas... between Dallas & Plano, awesome location
Love Field (Lvl 8) - NW "corner" of Dallas proper
Then there's the higher levels in Dallas / Ft Worth**.
