College Decision

  1. Oct 3, 2014 #1
    Hello Everyone!
    I have a interesting decision to make.
    I have been accepted into University of Wisconsin-Plateville for Environmental Engineering, which I can start taking classes towards my degree.
    I have also been accepted into the University of Minnesota Twin Cities, however i got into the college of food and agriculture. I talked to a professor at this school and said i can work my way into the college of science and Engineering. So i have a conundrum i guess.
    Another issue is i live in the twin cities area, and while the U of M is a great school this leaves the chance of me being a commuter rather than staying on campus, which is something i want to experience. I also have a ugly living situation at home and would like to get away from there (Im 19 years old) .
    If anyone has any experience regarding these schools, or just some advice for someone in my situation I would really appreciate it .

    How about you attend University of Minnesota Twin Cities, and live on-campus there? By going to an in-state university, you are already saving a lot of money. I don't see a reason to pay much more to go to an out-of-state university, just because going there will guarantee that you'll live away from your home.

    playoff, thank you for your response,
    Tuition will not be a problem as wisconsin and minnesota have a reciprocity agreement. I did not expect getting into minnesota but now that i am accepted i have to rethink it.
