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!

haha I'm in a very similar position as you, I'm an upcoming high school senior, so I actually am not the person to be answering, but you mentioned that you don't know who to talk to. If you have a favorite teacher in your school, or your guidance counselor definitely should be able to help you. Also, do you know any... More

Miami should be your first choice, since you want to go into marketing. That school is highly respected in the world of Ohio business, and you'll make some very valuable contacts there. Visit the campus and take their tour. You'll probably like it... More
