Ok Virginia Tech where to begin…

Keep in mind that I am from Buffalo NY so i speak in the mind of an out of state student.

Virginia Tech is a great Engineering school, I attended one year here so far but I am no currently thinking about transferring, not because of the massacre. Speaking of this, Blacksburg is a very secluded small college town, that guy was just insane, and this kind of thing can happen anywhere.

You need to ask yourself some things before attending this school.. Some of these things are out of state questions.

Do you want to go to a school that gives hardly any financial aid?

Do you want to go to a school really in the middle of nowhere, and the closest thing to civilization is christiansburg, and when i say civilization I mean a movie theater and chain restaurants and a small mall.

Do you want to spend all your weekends drinking?

If yes, do you want to waste your time on conservative girls that save themeselves for marriage? (not to sound like a prick)

Do you want to go to a school that is prould of a diversity but is 95% white and white meaning no italians or other medium white skin people?

Do you want to go to a school that everyone knows eachother from a highshool in washington dc or northern virginia and tend to stick with them?

Now negatives aside…

Do you want to be apart of great football and a awesome school spirit?

Do you want to be apart of a solid engineering and business program?

Do you want to eat awesome food in the dinning facilities?

Think about those questions, Tech is a great school, but it is a state school and out of state people pay a great amount. If your willing to pay a good amount for an educatoin, want to drink every weekend, be in the middle of nowhere, and love football. Tech is for you.
