thanks for the continued insight, minnehahapolitan & ben around. i really appreciate it.

this is all (for now) dependent on transferring colleges, and i might not have the grades to get into the university of minnesota, so i'm thinking of another back-up option. this one actually has my real field of study (demography) as more of a centerpiece and less of a quick one-course deal, and the school is in... albany, NY.

if anyone's got anything to add about albany (compared to the other cities, or just anything at all), that'd be awesome. thanks.

minneapolis & philly are definitely two great, viable options for me though. it just depends on the school. i'm just considering one more.

Just a thought. Of course, going to a school that has a good program in what you want probably should to be the first consideration.
That's interesting reasoning. I can relate to that.

Having graduated from a college 'in the middle of nowhere', I kinda thought, after the experience, that I'd wished I'd chosen a place I'd have wanted to be long-term.

Funny how the thinking is so much different, but makes complete sense, dependent on the experiences one has.
