    Anyone from the area?? I'd like to hear the good and bad.
    I am going down soon to meet professors for grad school at ohio state and was wondering if anyone wanted to meet up for a bit it'll probably be a sunday night through monday night kind of thing.

    yea i'm not a big fan of ohio in general, but a graduate degree from there in materials science is like cash in the bank...
    i'd say they are top 3 in the nation,

    I think that most of Ohio, as a state, is gorgeous. I used to live a few miles from the border in Amish town.

    And that is where my compliments end.

    Here is what I typed in a Guestbook about Ohio at the end of last month: It got my frustrations out.

    I've been to ohio state, only for a Metallica concert though...

    the dorms are taller than every building we have in downtown Ft Wayne.

    Looked like a huge campus.... yep one more useless post made by yours truly.

    They just had a bad vibe to them. I was there for a Science Olympiad competition in high school. They worked really hard to get the competition held there and then the whole thing was just a shameless plug (and a poor one) for their school.

    They also were cheapo's compaired to the other schools. Most schools offer 1/2 ride scholarships to students who place first in their event, but Ohio offered a measly $1000....the same that most schools offer just for participating in the event. [​IMG]

    They salt their roads like crazy.. All of the used car's fenders/body panels are rusted out.

    Bad BAD place for cars.
