    Re: Just got accept to Iowa State

    What are you going for?
    What scholarships/financial aid is available?
    Where are you (location-wise) right now - assuming since you're on this message board, you live in or near Iowa, how do you think you would handle a drastic move to Cal?

    There are many, many things you need to consider.

    Be sure to visit Berkley before you make the decision to go there. It's an entirely different world.

    I'll take the sweet, feminine midwestern girls over the hippies that do not shave their legs.

    Re: Just got accept to Iowa State

    It all depends on what you want in life. Do you want to be awesome... or do you want to go to UC-Berkeley?

    Re: Just got accept to Iowa State

    The SF bay area is a pretty nice place, and berkeley is one of the top colleges in the US. As much as we all like ISU, you obviously need to consider that in your decision. A lot of factors though, including what you are majoring in and what you are looking to get out of your degree.

    Agree with the above on visiting berkeley. Ive been up in that area 2x in the last year, its a nice area, but it definitely is different. (I dont think ive ever seen more tie-dye, lol) You'll want to see if that is the place for you.

    Re: Just got accept to Iowa State

    Would someone that has been admitted to Berkeley make a grammatical error in a thread title?

    If you've been accepted into Cal-Berkeley, the top public university in the country, I'm thinking you had a ton of other options as well.
    How did you narrow it down to these two?

    Re: Just got accepted to Iowa State

    go to Berkeley if you like tree hippies.

    Go to Iowa State if you love women, beer, sports, awesome friends, good times and oh yeah.. a decent well grounded education to allow you set up roots in the midwest afterwards...

    Go to Iowa State if you love fat women, warm beer, junior varsity sports, fraternities, good times and oh yeah.. a decent well grounded education to allow you set up roots in the midwest afterwards...
    I only corrected some of it.
