As for Arkansas…. I highly recommend it. I live here and can attest to its amazing blend of urban, suburban, rural, and nature. It really is a wonderful place, the weather is great, and the cost of living is low. It is a great place to raise a family, grow a career, and even retire. And as for working for the VA, it will be one of the best and most rewarding practice experiences of your career.
