The info regarding Columbus, Ohio is not accurate. MS guy, you're best bet is to visit each city.

Columbus is quite a bit like Indianapolis and Kansas City in my opinion, if you're familiar with either of those cities.

I was SO close to attending University of Minneapolis.. Minnesota has incredibly friendly people, their cities are beautiful and clean and really incredible. The only thing I couldn't deal with is the weather, but you definitely don't have to worry about acceptance there.

Have you thought about anywhere in Chicago?

The winters here really, truly are blown out of proportion by the national media. There wouldn't be a major metropolis here if the climate wasn't fit for human habitation.

Sure, it gets cold, but so you just put on a coat and you're good to go. Most of the U (that's what locals call the University of Minnesota) is connected via skyways/tunnels (called the Gopher Way), but it's not popularly used. A lot of students actually brave the elements (gasp), and we still manage to have a student body of over 50,000. It's really not that bad!

I agree, but this past winter really sucked.

You'll find that people who live in the Midwest/Northeast also think this past winter really sucked.

I thought last winter was great, actually. It made up for the non-winter of 2011-2012.

The word "reckon" gets used quite a bit in Ohio and lots of places. It's not limited to the South. It's an actual word in the English language.

I'm not from Michigan or Ohio but I can tell a difference in the accent of Michigan and the Southern 2/3's of Ohio. The Southern 2/3's of Ohio has pretty much a flat accent. It's the same as the way the people on the tv news talk. Now, there are a sizeable percentage of Ohioans that are southern immigrants or the children and grandchildren of Southern immigrants, so there is a detectable twang in the accent that many Ohioans talk. It's prevalent enough that anybody would detect it after being there for awhile and hearing different people talk. The Southern 2/3's of Ohio is pretty redneck, and I say that as a good thing. Rednecks are a lot of fun.

It's more that Michiganders have an accent than central Ohioans have a "southern" accent.

I don't notice Ohioans speaking much differently from the norm but every now and then in Michigan it can be grating. I can't even mimic but I know it when I hear it.

So to Michiganders who have that nasally accent, I'm sure the Ohio accent does sound more "southern" to them when in reality they're just used to "northern."
