I would like to stay around my area. Does the tier stuff really matter? I just don't understand why UT would be so much better than Miss. Someone even told me that if i plan on living in Tn, that UT is even better than Vandy. I don't get it.
You people need to stop using UT here for University of Tenn. This is a national website. It's like people using UM for University of Miss. while people think they are refering to the prestigous University of Michigan.
Get over it...the people who are referring to this post for advice know what UT is in this case and so did you. Don't go searching for reasons to be a d!ck.
If someone's been following the thread, and the topic is "choosing in the south", I have a hard time believing someone's suddenly going to think UM's Michigan. Were you confused?
