Did you grow up here or something? I grew up an hours north of LA and moved here when I was 19. I'm staying because my Dad is here and is turning 80 this summer. Some day I will leave and either go back to CA or south or east (got to be beach). Why do you want to come to OH?
No, my Mom is from Santa Barbara and that is where my grandparents live as well. I lived in NYC for several years and went to grad school in LA and lived there for several years. I was transferred to San Fran last year.
My brother lives in Ohio. He went to OSU for undergrad and got married, bought a house in Hilliard and has settled down there, and I have a really cute baby nephew to boot. I was always jealous of the homeownership thing, and I thought (and still think) that Ohio State is a very good, practical law school, and the price is right (especially with the scholarship I somehow landed).
I really am torn between Loyol and Ohio. I've written about it in a few posts. Still don't know which way I will go, private schools are so expenseive and I don't like debt.
