    Accepted to ISU as a transfer student!

    I'm Edd from the UK, and as you can tell I'm new to this forum, the reason behind this is, I found out I'm coming to Iowa State next year!

    So I've come here to get the lowdown on the place (past the research I've done on all of the academic issues and stuff you would read on there website!)

    Whats the party scene like? Which halls should I go for? What are the girls like? I hear theres a pretty big gender imbalance.

    (sorry about the second thread, forgot you americans say transfer to mean something different to exchange!)

    After doing a survey with 178 guys and 1 girl, I estimated that there is only 1 girl for every 178 guys

    Ah it can't be that bad... surely! All I've seen about american college comes from Van Wilder and American Pie... is it anything like that all? And accommodation, where would you guys recommend?

    If you believe college will be like Van Wilder, American Pie, or any other college movie prepare to be disappointed.

    Do you have a list of choices? And how old are you?

    I'd say it's more like Accepted. Or maybe Old School.

    Campus is about 57% male. Adjusted for engineers with no social life, it's pretty close to 50-50.

    If you have a British accent, you will have no shortage of women to choose from.

    I think you're underselling accents. Irish and Scottish are pretty awesome too.

    That's what I was going to say! It's a bit presumptuous of the original poster to say he's from the UK and we are to assume that he means Great Britain.
