    The cold. I love winter. I'm already lamenting the onset of spring.

    Double-counting, but congrats again nonetheless.
    Yeah but it feels kinda different when you get it on a nice piece of paper. [​IMG]

    I love how people refer to it as "The Ohio State University". Is this supposed to make it sound more sophisticated? Make the people sound smarter...At least they have that going for them.....which is nice.

    It was founded as "The Ohio State University." It's the official name.

    I guess you learn something new everyday, even at a land grant school. That is a drastic change from your current college, I would personally stick with SS. You might get really lost at "The Ohio State University"

    And probably many differences between Columbus and my community college.

    But together, we shall be strong.

    I've been accepted into The OSU for Spring '09. Same department, actually.

    I live 30 minutes north of Purdue. That's the main reason for not going to Purdue [​IMG] . I think literally about 60% of my graduating class is at Purdue. Hell, my college right now is in the same town as Purdue and I see enough of them just driving to class. I was popular in high school, but I don't want college to be Tri-County High School: Redux.

    IU, is my 3rd choice. When I graduated, I got accepted into Notre Dame, but I foolishly didn't take that opportunity. IMO, The OSU is a better school for PoliSci/History than IU, and I'm not willing to forego the opportunity at a better school again. I was also thinking Univ. of Indy. I work for a trucking company right now and if I go to UIndy, I could still work at the terminals in Indy and then I could also live with my girlfriend.

    Not so foolishly, you would have been praying to the "Need a Football Team Jesus" instead of the "Touchdown Jesus", not sure which has been easier the past year.

    OSU will provide greater long-term benefit than UofIndy. All the best...

    It's tough to beat an alumni network of 400,000. I'm frequently told by people from all walks of life that the best bets for connections (aside from Ivy League caliber schools) are the large, good-quality public schools. I'm talking OSU, Michigan, Virginia, UFlorida, UMaryland, etc.

    IMO Notre Dame is one of the most overrated private colleges in the country.

    Ehh, overrated or not, it's still a great school. And I took it as a great honor to even be accepted.
