A month or so ago I started a thread on this board about a little dilemma I faced between an undergraduate edcuation at Ohio University or MIT. At the time, it looked like the finance issue would be an impossible obstacle and so I was set on OU. However, in the past few weeks things changed dramatically and I am now officially signed up for MIT. Just wanted to post the final conclusion of the story on the board for anyone interested. Thanks again; things turned out pretty freakin' well.

Good job, have fun over there :)

If luck wins over, I'll meet you over there in two years, sigh.

check out the best teachers with the current students, but i recommend mike artin, arthur mattuck, david vogan, and probably george lustzig, and victor kac, and johan dejong, although I do not know them personally.

Arthur Mattuck has his differential equation lectures online. Talk about an amazing professor! I would have killed to have him as my professor for probably ANY math class :)

You're lucky man. That's awesome!

As one who did their undergraduate work at OU, I can say that it's certain that you'll get a world class education at MIT, but you're going to miss one hell of a good time at OU.

Congratulations~!

i've heard good things about artin and mattuck, and i took modern algebra with kac, who was great. however, i've heard not-so-great things about lustzig...

but congrats!

Let me guess? Financial aid? I hope you're doing well.
