I would've gone to U of R if I could've afforded it, I think. It's a great school and a good distance.

It's pretty much all that I want in a college. Size, distance, academics, programs. Everything. Now, where to get the money...

I like UofL because it's sort of big (18,000-ish undergrad/grad) and yet I get small stuff because I'm in the honours programme. It's close to my home, it has good schools, I love my professors and friends, and the quiz bowl team is pretty KA too.

Marie always said she'd take me to visit U of R, but she was always too busy with Dev lolz. I haven't actually spoken to her since before I went to England...

While I don't expect any of you to take my advice, let me plug JMU for a moment. It's an amazing campus, good size (18,000 undergrad) in a suburb not unlike Amherst, and has a bunch of programs that are exploding. Right now, it doesn't seem to have much of a sciences program, but really it does, it's just so new it doesn't have the numbers or the notoriety.

The school itself is over 100 years old (established 1908) but it had a liberal arts reputation for most of its history. As far as Virginia goes, Tech was the engineering/sciences school, UVA was for super-achievers, and Madison was for liberal arts degrees (still somewhat true, and it shows in the male-female ratio). But in the past 5 years JMU has basically built another half of campus to expand its research and sciences areas, and there's more construction on the way.

Class of 2013 is 65% women, by the way.

then of course you may want to look at some of the larger, yet wonderful big ten schools. They range from Middle of nowhere Pennsylvania to Downtown Chicago, to cornfields of Iowa

Also, UofL is the oldest public university in Kentucky. It was officially created in 1798. It's so surprisingly green for being in the middle of a city... and it has a really good business school, education school and engineering school. I know it's not really known for English but it's super great for science (every other person in my year is a bio and/or chem major) but I LOVE IT so much.

The University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign is one of the best business schools in the country as well as a well known engineering school. The Department of History has also recently been enhanced by the creation of a History Club

Which you'll never be able to attend. At JMU we're a Top 10 D-II football team, which has several advantages over D-I teams. They are...

1.) Winning EVERY home game.
2.) Being able to attend the games for free with great seats.
3.) Not having to deal with douchebag 12 year olds who randomly chose to love your team.

And Drew, the International Bowl, while not featuring highly ranked teams, is a very notable and important bowl. It's desired cultural exchange with our neighbors to the North, what could be better?

At Louisville we have a quiz bowl team that's pretty KA. At Louisville my roommate is not a fish, she's an archer. (I'm the fish.) At Louisville is where I'm staying for the next four years, and at Louisville, I'm going to get a scholarship to Cambridge. Just watch me. Let's have this discussion again in four years, eh?

I was making the point that Louisville has made a final four more recently and has had way more recent success than Illinois.

Are you doing quiz bowl?

Ummm... hello. Louisville went to the final four last in 2005. Illinois last went to the final four in, oh will you look at that... 2005. Oh and what happened in that game, hmmm lets see Illinois BEAT, yes BEAT Louisville! So there Dohn, you are decieving Alex into thinking that her school has been in the final four sooner, but no. They were kicked out of the four by none other than ILLINOIS. MUHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHA!

So to answer your question. They both made it to the final four in the same year, but Illinois progressed further.

POINT DREW

Next: We went to the Rose Bowl in 2008, Louisville went to the Orange Bowl in 2007. So yea, more recent? Hmmmm...

No offense to Alex, I just had to punish Dohn for saying that the Louisville has had more recent victories

Thank you Smile affraid
