poor trizkutt. why don't you get into an actually presitigious undergrad? wisco is great, but not prestigious by any means.
tttriscuit is what happens when you have to transfer into your top choice undergrad. The one or two years he spent at UW-platsville, or wherever, seems to have seriously F-ed with his mind/self-confidence/ability to subtly flame.
Not fair to transfers. My ex-girlfriend got accepted to Madison, but was scared of the city and went to another UW, she then transferred to Madison after a year. I transferred to Madison because coming out of high school I thought I wanted to go to a Liberal Arts College (HA!) and never even applied (would have gotten in). It's definitely too easy to transfer from UW System schools, but just don't judge all transfers by this guy. We weren't all jealous strivers determined to get into a school we think is so incredible that we go around to message boards trying to convince people it's better than Michigan, Virginia, and Berkeley.
I'm curious to know what she was scared of? I mean it can be a little intimidating with the size. Was it the atmosphere? Ie too wild for her?
Basically she wasn't looking where she was going and almost got run over by a bus. It's definitely strange since she grew up in a suburb of Milwaukee, but I guess living in a downtown atmosphere could be a little new. I didn't know her at the time, but she's not always the most rational person about major life decisions.
