achilles109 hopes to escalate quickly but not get out of hand.
Default college

I have been accepted and received scholarships to both The Ohio State University, and the University of Hawaii for ROTC. The scholarship requires me to decide which school I will be attending no later than the 21st, but I am not able to visit Hawaii until April. If there are any students of the University of Hawaii at Manoa that read this board could you please let me know so i can get some information about it. thanks.

We are not you. We do not have full details of everything going on, or all the pros and cons for you as an individual.

Really, we can only offer you superficial advice, and if that's what you want, you shouldn't be going to University.

Make up your own mind with your friends and family, not random strangers.

I was going to say tOSU until you said you live 15 ******s from campus.

I would go to neither. Hawaii is just going to be weird and tOSU is way to close to home.

I recommend going to visit each campus and staying there on your own. See if you feel at home at each. If you feel at home in Hawaii, make the move. If not, stay closer to home. This is a big decision, but it is also one you should make based on your own experiences.

Hawaii is a very expensive place to live, and perhaps not the best place to focus on one's studies. This is a very significant decision, and I can't blame anyone for having a little trouble coming to a conclusion...

since all of us are football fans i am suprised no one has said Ohio simply based on there football tradition. that being said i am a real laid back person so i would choose hawaii in a heartbeat. 15 mins from campus is too damn close. F that. but like some other ppl have said, this should be a decision that you make on your own and really don't listen to any of us.

I'm actually trying to get into two Ohio schools. (BGSU {Accepted} and CCMS)

Is there something wrong with me?

D-UNIT could help you with this. He has the most school spirit for Hawaii that anyone I have seen. I guess it depends on whether or not you are an introvert or an extravert. If you are an extravert and are not afraid to get out and meet new people then Hawaii would be cool. I'm sure Samoans are way different from than the people in Ohio. If your an introvert and dont like change that much then Ohio State might be for you. Ohio State is also a much more demanding school than Hawaii so it also depends on how much you want to study and are focused on getting a good GPA.

Coming from somebody that's actually in upper-academia, Ohio State is a MUCH better school academically. If you actually care about that, and the scholorships are roughly the same, it's not even close.

You can get a good job with a degree and move to the beach if you're that concerned with weather. Don't short-change the importance of a good education becuase of something like that.

People that choose their college based off the sports teams are the dumbest people in the world.

Well it's all relative. That being said, most people have no idea what they want to do so....

Generally just being in classes with smarter people (not that Ohio State is the academic mecca of the world or anything) can heighten the discourse.

I know for a fact that Ohio State is relatively restrictive in terms of attedance. Don't get me wrong, there are still a lot of meatheads, but I've seen much much worse.

frogstomp i was asking if anyone here had been to hawaii so I could ask them questions about it, not trying to ask what you guys think... Im pretty sure that getting scholarships is a bit difficult and that Im not exactly stupid enough to throw away my education for good weather. The other side is that this is a once in a lifetime opportunity, and while OSU is the better school, Hawaii has the better ROTC program..... Im undecided in a major right now and I may make a career out of the army.

also i dont live close to OSU i live in Akron, over 180 miles away

Thats true as long you want to study much more. A person that has an A at Hawaii will get more jobs than someone that got a C at tOSU. I would base it on which place you will enjoy rather than which school is more difficult. If you enjoy the place then you will be more likely to get good grades than some place you hate.

Not necessarily... If he goes back to work in Ohio hes going to have a hard time finding anyone that knows anything about Hawaii academics, not to mention that he could get internships at tOSU that lead to places in Ohio.

If you live 180miles from tOSU then go there. It isn't even a hard decision for me and I am a michigan fan.

It's common sense man. I would expect more from someone that is going to graduate school. An employer will look at that C and figure you did just enough to get by so you can get the degree. Granted if you get an A then thats a whole different story. I will put it this way. If you get an A in graduate school in Minnesotta I guarantee you will get the job over someone that didnt do so well at Harvard or Yale that you are competing against.
