ahahah wow this is awesome. i just read this whole thread and laughed. yelling silently at each other sure is changing my opinion. first of all, no one can flat out generalize that one school is better than another school. sure one school may be better for ONE specific person than another school, but don't generalize. i did also consider csu, mines, california schools, and oregon but i chose cu because it fit me school-wise and socially. sure the social scene plays a big part in deciding where to go. but when chosing a school you really need to ask yourself what's right for you and not other people. other opinions are good but don't take them too seriously. what do you want to do with your life after school? career-wise? after all, the real reason people go to college and pay a shit load of money is to get an education. if all you want to do is have a good time and party lots, you can do it without giving a school thousands a year.
'pardon me while i burst into flames. i've had enough of this world and it's people's mindless games.'
