No KSU will be the largest and overtake GSU and be the dominant school as the school of choice among the average students.

Your obsession is weird. Regardless, I think the "average" student will go where they feel more comfortable. Some might want an urban setting as opposed to a suburban setting, others might want to focus on majors GSU excels at or those majors Kennesaw excels at. It all depends. That's not to say KSU won't end up having more students, but not sure that makes any school dominant. Georgia Perimeter College has more than either of KSU or GSU, but I wouldn't necessarily tout that as some sort of sign as dominance.

No, right now, GSU and KSU are larger than GPC. Students are influenced by a school's reputation. KSU will be larger than GSU with more programs including Engineering, Information Technology, and Architecture. KSU will offer more and be perceived as the better school. I've seen people pore over Georgia Tech's catalog trying to find a major just because they want a "Tech degree". KSU is fairly popular now, but after the merger, I think they'll go through the roof.

I can remember when KSU was just a Junior College and GSU was a university. My, how the gap has narrowed, and expect KSU to pass GSU.

Just push the right buttons. And it seems, I've pushed yours.

Don't flatter yourself. I'm laughing at you. You pounce any time someone posts about GSU. It reeks of desperation.

Your derision doesn't bother me. You have your automatic responses too. Just pointing out where this is going. KSU is clearly an academic juggernaut.
