it just depends on the class cause some require more books and material than others

Yes, looks like the slums. I visted drexel, upenn & temple. drexel just borders a slum looking area, it's a very integrated campus into philly (i think it's like on west side? ). upenn is nice, very nice. but temple, (i think on the north side? ) is the fucking pits. i would suggest visiting or talking with someone who goes there tho, since their word is most likely better then mine.

Fashion Institute of Technology? Not exactly a lot of choices to major in there, but if that is what you are into then it is a good school.

1. Are you a genius

2. Are you trolling or foreal

3. I'm pretty sure Brown is in rhode island

4. It's maybe the best school in the country

Are you serious? What does Rhode Island have to offer a college student? I heard it's a very liberal school.

blinkyeyes How the hell do you randomly apply to an Ivy League school without knowing about it?

1. He's both a genius and a retard for not even knowing Brown is a good - if not GREAT school - and that he got in with a full scholarship.

4. I don't know about the best school in the country, but definitely one of the best.

What the fuck? Who cares if it's in Rhode Island. You get into an Ivy League school with a full ride, you go there no questions asked. It's not as bad as Cornell's location (middle of a bunch of corn fields and shit).

How do you guys deal with your roommate when they catch you looking at clothes, fits, and jeans online?

I check the HB denim and SuFu denim thread about 2-3 times a day and I don't want me roommate to think I'm crazy or some shit.

16 credits freshman year at CSULA, am I going to be overworked? I can usually buckle down and get shit done, and I don't anticipate becoming sidetracked/partying too much. I've just heard that 16 units is a lot. Someone with more knowledge fill me in.

A lot of my friends are going to Davis. I would be too if I hadn't gotten accepted to UM or NYU.

16 units is fine if 120 is the minimum you need to graduate. You should average 15 if you want to graduate in 4 years.

The Ivy League is just the name of a football conference. I'm trying to find a school for fit not prestige since I'm majoring in a liberal arts degree.

Ivy league may just be the name of a athletic conference, but the schools that are in the conference are among the best schools in the country. Yale, Harvard, Brown, Columbia, all of those are extremely good schools. If you really did get into Brown with a full ride, congratulations. I would accept for sure, unless I had better options.

Liberal Arts, honestly i'm not surprised you got in, no offense but I laugh everytime someone says they are doing liberal arts, political science etc. Makes me feel sorry for them, because when they graduate they will be working at starbucks.

That's debatable, Sure those schools are well known and rich, but besides that there is no magical things that happen there. I won't speak for the other schools but Harvard is a great school, taken some classes there and just been there a great deal due to friends being there.

But honestly, so is Northeastern, so is Boston University. And they are expensive, hard to get into and prestigious.

And no lie, if I would have gotten into Harvard when I first started, I probably would have only went a year and then transferred, it's really expensive.

If you're majoring in a liberal arts degree, Brown should still be a great school for you.

Edited out. =)

This statement is not entirely true. Although liberal arts caters to a more vague job market, if you realize what job options are available for you after you graduate in your hometown, you'll be better off then majoring in a overly saturated major like accounting or nursing,etc. It really just depends on where you live with respect to the abundance of jobs for that certain major.

There are poli sci. majors where I live garnering $70k out of college doing jobs that are less stressful than an investment banker putting in 55+ hours a week for $80k.
