    College advice needed!

    I've been accepted to
    CU Boulder
    University of Arkansas (in same town im in now)
    and Kansas

    what do u think?

    Is it real important to leave home sort of or what? What would you have done differently? Majority of my friends are staying here. No one im tight with is going to Boulder and one of my best friends is going to Kansas.

    I'm looking for those who are in school or those who went for just advice. I'm prob going to go in for environmental or civil engineering.

    Thanks,
    Mitch

    Well, which school has the best program for your major? That should be the deciding factor.

    KU not state.

    CU prob has the best but all are close enough.

    Simple....

    How do the various programs rate and what can you afford?

    definately... and also if its close between two of them like they both are good at what you want, then pick the one that would be able to have a backup for yuo incase you deecide to change your mind about your career..

    also DO NOT pick a college based on where your friends are going!!!

    Which one offers you the best curriculum to satisfy your potential major? Along with outside activities? Are you able to tour the campus? how close is the campus to major highways and/or airports when you need to get home...

    If they are all the same, just pick the one Playboy recommends

    Forget what school is best for you... think about friends college is a time to party

    and... you will have a riding buddy (me)

    I guess I'm not good for advice am I

    honestly, I have been to boulder, and live in Lawrence..

    Both are cool places. Really mellow places... Lawrence is like Boulder in a lot of ways. Boulder has a lot of things we don't. We have things that they don't.

    There are 2 lakes equal distance from KU campus. Boulder, I don't know. I know a guy that lives in Boulder and when we went there.. it was great! It is like a valley town as I recall.. the downtown is closed off to cars, so it is all walking which is really cool!

    I would as people have said, see which is a better fit for you.. tour each one, which one fits you best, go with it..

    but common consider KU basketball

    Ku basketball=soon to be national champs

    Money isn't really a factor to be honest. CU would be awesome because of the skiing and mtn biking. I also have fam in denver..it is a 13 hour drive from home though. But all 3 of those schools have solid engineering programs. It almost seems silly to drop an extra 30k a year to be up in the mountains compared to just staying in arkansas but i think i need to get out of here.
