Personal hit?   To be honest there was only one T20 school I wanted to go to from the outset, maybe two.  I don't like being around snobby people all the freaking time, I did that for 3 years.  I'm sure several of you T14'ers aren't but that was the impression I got before I started applying.

Haha amen my friend.  I think you'll find midwesterners are a lot more grounded and friendly in general than the UVa UG types from the East Coast/NOVA

Stupid generalization.

Sounds like midwesterners are snobby about their non-snobbery.

This is going to be the greatest 3 years of our lives.

And while I'm an East Coaster for life, maybe, one thing I like about the Midwest: no natural disasters, as long as you're out of tornado alley, which Midwest Proper probably is. Of course, this is balanced by not having anything interesting to do.

"But Ohio has more 'big cities' than any other state!"

Shut up.

Shut up.

Whoever makes that argument should hang themselves.  Cleveland is awful.  It smells.  The only cities that smell worse are Akron and Youngstown, but that's what you get when you're lined by tire plants.  I've lived my whole life in Columbus, and it is constantly referred to as a "nice place to raise a family", which I am pretty sure is code for "no cool *&^% ever happens here".  And Cincinnati, well, it's called Cinci-tucky for a reason.  In short, Ohio blows.
