Would you still consider a satellite campus? Electrical Engineering is one of the engineering programs at Marion that has the most classes available. At OSU you usually need to wait until spring of sophomore year to apply to the specific program because of the classes you have to have completed. My S is interested in EE and will be ready to apply to EE this spring from Marion. My D was able to land a spot in Biomedical engineering from Marion as well (but that was before they also required an intro BME class which is currently only on main, now.) The engineering college continues to be competitive and I wonder with students moving down from Marion every semester who know the engineering professors because they commute up here to teach the classes, if there are actually any spots to transfer into at main - especially second semester of freshman year when few freshman take a leave for co-op.

I remember a lot of jaws dropping in my hs Calculus class bc I had the highest math score, I beat the smart kid by 10 points. I was nearly flunking the class btw, but the SAT had all my favorite math: algebra and geometry. I remember flying through that section on test day and resting my head to take a nap (those were the days my hs friends and I would sneak into the nearby campus bars on Friday nights, the bars served draft beer in buckets and had disposable cups with one floating on top as the ladle, seriously where were parents in the 80's?). My gym teacher who was proctoring freaked out and told me that I should really be using the time to review my answers. He walked over to give a pep talk/intervention for teen apathy - nowadays wouldn't that dq the score? My verbal was awful though, so no great composite to brag about. :-)
