I only mention this because some of the posters in this thread seem to feel that Minnesota and Wisconsin are about equal. Clearly many do not agree.
I don't know when you went to Wisconsin, but having only one class where you couldn't approach a professor and stuck with a TA is hard to believe.
At the UW you will have a TON of TA's, not to say UMN won't, but it is much more prevalent at the UW.
As for TA's I'm going off of the experiences of friends and family who have attended Wisconsin.
Sure the UW has a slight edge on the strength of student that attends, but when you have CSOM and IT at the "U" I feel it's a wash.
IT is one of the more selective colleges at the "U". That is where you get your B.S. in Computer Science. Being in one of the better colleges there doesn't help compared to being in the Liberal Arts area (CLA) of the school?
and that probably will continue as Minnesota's new cut-rate OOS tuition rate will attract a lot of new apps from OOS students
