Resolved Question: How does one go about
I would absolutely love to live there. It's one of my dreams.
I was going to go there for school, but international rates are extremely expensive for university. So maybe after university, I would love to get a job there and live there.
I live in a small-ish city so I would probably want a smaller-ish city there. I was thinking about Wellington or Timaru.
Anyway, how hard is it moving to a new country from Canada, or moving into New Zealand?
Is there a small chance that I could do that? :( Thank you!

Resolved Question: What is New Zealand like?
So my lady and I are currently enrolled in pharmacy school and we will graduate in a couple years. We are seriously considering moving out of the States and New Zealand is our top pick at the moment.
We are thinking of living near Christchurch or possibly somewhere closer to the strait; so, that is to say, we want to live on the South Island.
So a few questions. How medically friendly? How pharmaceutically friendly? How is the family situation, ya know, education stuff like that? What is the political situation, more than just the organization please? And for two people who have always lived in Illinois, how culturally different is it, what are big things we'd have to adjust to? Oh. And I have lived in small towns all my life. 3 to 10 thousand. I go to school in St. Louis now though
