I transferred from another University which was not particularlyFeb 17 2016Accounting
I transferred from another University which was not particularly enjoyable. However, it blew Ohio State out of the water when it came to safety cleanliness and resources. I would recommend the transfer method or going to a branch campus if you truly wanted to go. However, if your looking for a great education run to another school because all you have here is people who love football.
