I am going to go to the University of Kansas next fall. All I have to do now is decide; fraternity or dorms?

Probably more because of who you meet there rather than the education you get. There are obviously exceptions to that comment, but I would bet on that scenario being a majority.


exactly!

Well, label me naïve, but I was more concerned with understanding what I was learning than I was with meeting people who could hook me up with cushy jobs and salaries I maybe didn't deserve.

That's not me.


You seem to be missing the point. You can understand what you learn and get a hell of a lot out of an education at lots of schools. And that is important.

But part of life is also the networking and connections you make, which open up opportunities. And those happen to be better at certain places than others.

It's not connections or education. It's education and lots of connections versus education and fewer connections.


I'll bet that on the average, people that can afford the more expensive schools probably have more connections in the first place.

I went to Radford U, then transferred to VA Tech, as you probably know awesome football program, and now since joining the ACC the B-ball program is improving. They almost beat Duke ;-D
Besides, it's amazingly beautiful in and aroung Blacksburg and the whole applachain area.
But you might want to consider U of Miami, for hot chicks and fun in the sun. Their football program isn't so bad either.

Where are you at right now? JC?

I went the JC route and think it was the best decision I have every made.
