Anyone ever have regret about where they go for college, I think im just kind of annoyed at my self. I am going to OSU as i said 2 posts before me, but I feel like i should be going to a better school. I got a 31 act and a 3.3 gpa. I didnt really do to much in highschool but then rocked the act so it evened out. I didnt get into Madison and I kind of got screwed at U of I because I applied to business instead of general and my application didnt get reviewed for general studies/undecided. I am in a scholars program and am getting about 10K a year scholarship, but for some reason im not happy. I'm sure this will go away soon, might even in the next 2 days because of orientation. I was between Maryland and OSU, and i thought osu would be a better fit, but now i'm having these negative feelings. Anyone else have a clue about what im talking about?

forget about what other people "think" about the school. your view of good school, bad school comes from the people around you, both on your side and the "type" of people enrolled at the school.

I know what you mean, I live around the Ann Arbor area where everything's always UMich centered. I applied there also, mostly because it was a great value for instate tuition, but it was never my first choice if I could help it because of the "false pretense" a lot of people round here place on it. My neighbors think its the greatest school ever, seriously. I on the other hand, would die to go somewhere else where the people aren't as pompous, and luckily I am. Here's my point. Don't let societal expectations or views mess with your own opinion, if you genuinely dont like OSU once you experience it, then its all you. Just don't let your educational socialization fuck with your outlook on an institution. Everything in life is based upon what YOU put into it, with a little luck.

I had fun at orientation and I am looking forward to it, only prob now is my housing. I have my 3 roomates and i like them all, but because of the scholars program im in i have to live in a quad. The quads at osu are just one study room/lounge room and 1 little room with barely anyspace and 2 double bunks. It kind of sucks and will be hard to get used to but i hope it all goes well

I'm going to OSU as well. Can't wait I'm so fucken excited. Got in with 3.96 GPA and 25 ACT, was afraid I wouldn't be accepted because of my ACT but all the AP classes I rocked paid off. Wish I did better on the ACT though oh well. Everything is fucken based on ACT now, that's why I'm not getting any scholarships for OSU. Oh well.

I got orientation next month and still don't know who I'm rooming with. I'm so behind on things.

I got in and im on the way opposite end of the spectrum 3.3 and 31 on act. I chose osu for a big reason cuz scholarship was all based on act, that 9 grand a year for out of state is real nice smokeyface. Hit me up with a pm with your name and wat not if you arent comfortable doing it on here so i can hit u up on fb.

Anybody in here doing advertising? I'm coming up on my senior year old high school and planning everything out. My gpa isn't great(3.34 and I'll have at least a 4.0 through senior year), and I got a 28 on the act, which I will hopefully bring up to a 30.
I would love to go to Oregon, but I doubt I could get enough, if any, money to go out there. I have a ton of other places I'm going to apply:
-Michigan State-visited, loved it
-Temple
-U of Illinois-most likely won't get in but my dad's an alum and my parents want me to go there
-Texas-does anyone know how they are with scholarships?

then maybe: Iowa, Mizzou(sister and a ton of my high school go here), Marquette, and Ohio State. Any suggestions?

Also, I forgot to mention, I'm set on extracurriculars. Editor in Chief of the school paper, photog for yearbook, french club officer, model un. Not sure how much that stuff actually helps though

If anyone knows about these schools, especially financially, let me know.

Anywhere else I should apply?

Im going to OSU and i was basicly in the same situation 3.3 and a 31, osu gives about 10g's if you have above a 28 and are out of state. I live in Illinois and i heard its very hard out of state, with those numbers maybe you could get into texas, i regret not applying. But, I dont think they give money unless you have better stats. Senior year gpa means nothing, so dont stress it, and just make sure you get better than like a 3.0. Good luck
Jul 12, 2011 @ 02:38
Thanks a ton man. I think I'm going to apply to Ohio State. I would love to go to Oregon though, and I liked Michigan State a bunch. I wish I had better numbers to get into UIUC, but im pretty sure I have no chance.

Where are you at? in in the chicago suburbs, i assume you are too?
I got fucked over when i applied to u of i, if you apply to aces and transfer out you can get in semi easily. I instead decided to apply to business and didnt get in because of the much higher standards.

Oh nevermind, didnt look at location.

Going to RCC in the fall (still need to apply for classes), then hoping to go to Redlands Uni or UCSD.

i'll tell you this, depending on what you want to go into, you can find other schools that mich. state & OSU.
I live in Ann Arbor & am going to U of M so I guess I'm biased, but i have always thought that michigan state is overrated. Its huge & overpopulated in not a very nice surrounding area, oh yeah, its an aggy school (again, this depends on your area).

OSU means Columbus, which is really really fun if you love getting trashed with a bunch of people from Ohio |0 & the reputation of your school actually does matter to some extent.


& if you really want to go where you want: community service, & leadership positions on your application will put you over the edge.

I looked into it and osu actually doesn't have advertising. I went on a visit to Michigan State and liked it a lot and the atmosphere was fine with me, I am content with a big school and I'm not from Michigan so I wouldn't be with a bunch of people from high school. Michigan state also has a top advertising dept
