I kinda disappeared

Hey guys! I haven’t been on the forum in a while, I haven’t lost interest in mopeds it’s just that I’m a senior and visiting and applying for colleges has kept me super busy, i have also be doing so much research to figure out what I want to major in (either zoology or animal behavior) I think the plan right now is to save up some more money and look to spend a bit more than I had planned originally. Hopefully I can do this before I go off to college as most colleges

don’t allow freshman to have cars and I can use one to get around the town.

Well I just wanted to let you guys know what’s been going on, see you guys later

Re: I kinda disappeared

Good for you, most seniors don't go back to college.

How the hell can they stop a grown ass man from owning a car ....

Re: I kinda disappeared

I’m actually a senior in high school, and yeah it’s a dumb rule.

I almost made the same post about you being a senior as in over 65 years old age.

Re: I kinda disappeared

Haha nope different type of senior lol, guess I should have been more clear about that, I’m 18 actually

Re: I kinda disappeared

Come to Ohio State, we got a good moped culture brewing here

Re: I kinda disappeared

Go to UC Davis and you can ride all year 'round

Re: I kinda disappeared

I actually visited Ohio state and saw a couple of them, Ohio States way to big of a school for me though haha

It's a "large school" but there are so many small communities there and outside of the school that you can easily find your people. My wife graduated from there and is fairly introverted and she enjoyed it. Plus, you can just live north of campus and find plenty of people that are outside the college world.

What are you looking to study? Focus on that over school size IMO.

Re: I kinda disappeared

Zoology or animal behavior, I got the SAT and GPA to get into some more prestigious private schools (possibly even Cornell) I really want a smaller school so I can have a connection with the professors, some of the schools I’m looking at have a 1:9 professor to student ratio which is crazy. I also need to be able to do undergrad research which becomes more difficult with larger schools.

I’m applying to Bucknell, Lehigh valley, Delaware valley, Franklin and marshal, and Cornell, we will see what happens.

I went to University of Cincinnati which is a pretty big school, and my prof:student ratio for my program was 1:5. It really depends on the size of your program. w/e man, but I wouldn't put as much stock in the name on the school and more on the program and if they get grants and where their graduates are getting placed. Also how much experience you can get while there.

Also, all the schools you listed aren't even top ranked for your degree. Michigan and Ohio State are both in the top 10. (also OSU has access to the columbus zoo right up the street)

Look it's your life and your money, but I'm just throwing you some experience and advice, you do whatever you wanna do. So don't take this the wrong way.

Re: I kinda disappeared

I think worrying about faculty to student ratio is looking at the wrong metric. In general chemistry classes of course at OSU you're gonna have terrible ratios but once you get into your major your classes will likely have 20-30 students at most in them.

Research at OSU is so easy to get into, I accidentally stumbled into a research position last May when I didn't wind up finding an internship.

I really enjoy OSU. I know a lot of people in my major even though it's sort of big, I have good relationships with my professors, and I think there's more opportunity here due to its size and increasing prestige. But if you visited and didn't like it that's alright, it's just not for you
