Sorry to start yet another thread, but i must know.
For engineering. Right now VTech is top of the list, but i am strongly considering clemson and ohio state as well (mostly for financial reasons). Any one have an opinion, assuming cost were the same, as to which school would be better for me.
base it on this criteria (going into chemical or mechanical engineering):
actual learning experience (e.g. student to faculty ratio, renowned professors, etc.)
rural, safe, laid back environment
party scene is good, but people actually study too
diverse, but fairly conservative
good sports..... (o wait...they all three fit that :D)
those are some of my criteria, but feel free to add any other opinions based on experience with the schools. I have been accepted to all three and I am visiting osu and clemson this weekend. Any input is appreciated!
