Where should I go to college?
I'm going to be a senior in high school and I want to major in marketing. I have a 4.3 GPA, a 29 on the ACT and a handful of extracurriculars. My mom wants me to stay in state (OH) because it's cheaper, but i'd love to go to a bordering state. My dream is to live in Chicago and work for a large company but in order to do that, I want to get into a school with a good business program. Here's the colleges I've been looking at so far: Miami University (Oxford, OH) Ohio State DePaul University Loyola University Purdue University University of Pittsburgh University of Cincinatti Butler University Syracuse University University of Toledo Indiana University Freed- Hardeman University Lipscomb University The last two are christian universities. I'd love to go to a christian school, but I'm afraid I won't get the type of job I want if I don't attend a very well known business school. If I don't attend a christian school, I definately want to be a part of a larger campus ministry. Also, I've heard that Miami University is very preppy, and I'm not sure how well I'd fit in there. Sorry this was so long, I just don't know who to talk to about all of this. If you have any suggestions on where else I should look, please let me know! All of this is really stressing me out.

Ohio State and University of Cincinnati. Stay in state- save your money. You will need to go to grad school anyways and that will add to your total education bill. You live in a state with good schools- use them!
