  Every school here is open for everybody.

So I'm guessing it would be state in your terms. From what I've heard in america that equals crap most of the time (relativly speaking when compared to private ones) but my sources might be wrong, so dunnow.

Very high-quality educational system over here though since every school is a state school and shitloads of money are being spent on education here (and rightfully so). It's one of the biggest state expenses.

The one I'm going to is one of the biggest/renowned schools in the country. Should be alright.

Visited it today, friendly people in a not-faked kind of way, big buildings and excellent material/computer classes and so on. Was pretty impressed.

*Goes off to pout* Where I'm at quality in anything in the college would be laughed at at. It would be an actual expense and who would want to go to such lengths. *Hmmhp*

  starting my 5th year in fall, my final year of a 5 year program... jumped around from college to college too many times. I love school, though. It's fun.

  I'm going to be starting my senior at University of Maryland in 2 weeks.
My little tips:
Don't waste your time drinking. You waste too much time doing it. Going to the parties and clubs for the fun of it is one thing, but binge drinking is blech.
Take it slow and look at Everything, or you'll realize half way down the road all things you missed out on doing. All classes, all sports, all extra activities, Everything with a capital E.
Stay in shape. Go to the gym. Workout. Hike. Bike. Run. Walk. Jog. You'll feel better, look better, and worry less. You'll also eat less.
Don't just read books that are required. Always have an outside book on hand. That is what really makes you learn and grow.
Also, branch out. Take classes outside of your major as much as possible. If you are a comp sci/math/engineering/business, take a poly sci or lit or anthro class. Dabble in as much as possible. You enjoy your classes more and, more importantly, you enjoy yourself more.

  i'll be a senior at a state college in NY, SUNY geneseo. it's fun, this is my first year where i'm looking forward to the classes more than the partying. don't listen to Dan, you need to experience that stuff, have fun; there really is nothing like beligerantly drunk nights romping around town.

my advice would be, and it's not advice but moreso a heads up... if you start off w/ a declared direction, w/ a major, then your course load will be far more balanced than if you go in undeclared.

  Finished 5 years of university (no private institutions here) and, being the glutton for punishment I am I'm back again for courses as of Sept 9th. Grad school this time though.

Only difference thus far: getting asked to call all my professors by their first name and get invited to the departmental halloween/christmas/etc. parties.

Sounds like a good upgrade to me ;)

That's not quite true, and i'm not trying to defend state schools cause i'll most likely be going to one. There are some bad state schools, i'm sure, just like there are bad private schools. In california there are a TON of state schools, and a lot of them are really really good.

  I went to community college (south mountain community, maricopa community college district...the biggest community college district in the US)
I got my Associate's degree in Civil Engineering.

Then I made the *mistake* of attending Arizona State University and earned my Bachelor's degree in Justice Studies.

I agree with Libra...you have to do much research into schools. You'd be surprised with the education you'd get from a smaller school or a state school.
