UIUC FTW! Too bad I fucked around too much and switched schools after two years.

I have a suspicion the reason it's high is because the Engineering school there is kick ass. That's what I was studying.

Civil. I didn't really get into any of the core classes, though. I switched school after my sophomore year. The stuff I took was mostly Calculus, Chem, Intro to Engineering type classes, Econ, etc.

Hahaha, well, yeah those schools aren't in the party league of some colleges, and not in the scholastic (and job potential) of others, but pretty good at both.

Sounds like people are having fun and have the _potential_ to get into a decent career path.

MSU has a nice looking campus but I would hate to live there because I would seclude myself to the max. :lol: I can think of a few better universities I would rather attend in the same state for engineering.
