I told you. A bunch of guys from VolNation started a "Vonn Bell" chant at the Basketball game you could even hear it on tv. He has always wanted to be a Vol and had a great time on his visit. Jason Carr has been recruiting him hard.

Edit: And

Quote:
Unlike most, well virtually all elite prospects, Lawson has no plans to announce his decision on TV, or sit in front of a table of hats.

“He’s just going to call the school, and it will be done,” Lawson said. “There’s no press conference or anything like that.”

Some recruiting analysts, including 247sports.com's Gerry Hamilton, are projecting Lawson to sign with Tennessee.
Getting Lawson and Bell would be huge and stealing RB Johnathan Ford from Vandy.

It's sad and sickening. One of my friends was jumped by 4 black guys as he was walking 4 houses down to a party. They beat him, mugged him, and he ended up in the hospital. All for the $40 he had in his wallet.

****ing hoodrat pieces of ****.
Sounds like South Bend. When I lived off campus my house got broken into and they stole my tv.

My buddy stopped at a speedway to buy cigs one time and when he got back in the car there was a guy in the passenger seat pointing a gun at him. Made him go to 3 different ATMs to pull out cash, all the while smoking a crack pipe. When the guy made him stop at his gf's house so he could drop off the cash my friend got out and ran.

It's telling of the state of Tennessee's program when they're excited about stealing recruits from vandy.

Compared to the 26k I would of paid to go to Penn State instate, yes. Ohio State would be about 35k if I end up going there in the fall.

not really. people get robbed all the damn time but it is not really any more dangerous than any other huge, urban school. the surrounding area really is not horrible either (its not great by any means but ive seen MUCH worse). as far as violent campuses in the state of ohio OSU is childs play compared to UT, Cinci, Akron, YSU



20k a year for school is laughably cheap now. where i went is currently 43k a year.

I feel like I'd be dumb to turn down a Big 10 education that has my major, has the resources for my major, is within 7 hours of where my family lives, and my parents would be on board because, and especially my mom feels like I should of gone somewhere with more prestige. I have a 3.8 and plan on getting something similar this semester. I like WVU and it has been good to me, but like I've said a few times I sometimes get frustrated with the general cliental. I'm not saying I'm transferring or even applying there, I'm just dabbling in it right now and trying to figure out how much housing would cost, the general area, etc.

Off campus housing is safe from crime as long as you live in the right areas. Stay between High Street to Summit and Nowhich to Chittenden and you'll be good.

North off-campus tends to be more quiet, (Lane-Norwhich), while south of Lane tends to be rowdier on the weekends.

If you venture outside those parameters, it'll get cheaper to live, but also more riddled with crime etc.

I lived off campus multiple years, and never had an incident.

I'm going to at least apply and see what happens. I've read that a lot of kids who transferred in this past fall from out of state on average had a 3.1 and 30 credits. I'll have at least a 3.65 and 34 credits. I'm sending my **** in today though because I need it in before the first of February to be considered for merit scholarship. Not pulling the trigger yet though, like I said I just want to explore the option. I was looking at Ohio State very seriously when I was in high school and then found out they didn't offer the program at the undergrad level, had they I probably would of gone there.

What do I put down on this transfer application for housing? The three options are "university residence hall, family housing (for like married couples I guess), or living with parents/family." I'm going to be 20, I don't want to live in a dorm. I'm guessing "living with parents/family".

that is only if you are applying for campus housing, i believe. but yea, dorms suck



fyi, OSU is pretty safe in terms of BIG schools. Michigan is (well a few years ago at least) a much more dangerous campus.

That's only if you want to live on campus. There should be a way to waive that option and find your own place.

There's a bunch of nice houses on 15th Ave with large white pillars; it's where I spent a lot of my undergrad.
