California colleges get overrated due to the high emphasis on selectivity in the various rankings. Colleges in heavily populated states are going to have more people applying.

Exactly most state universities began as agricultural schools and put in the middle of nowhere on purpose.

No, "we" were not discussing global rankings. In fact, here is the thread title:
"After CA,which state has best 1-2 punch in public univ's?"

Yeah, he should have. He thought he knew everything. Many "flagship" unis are not in the largest city in their state, or even nearby, e.g. Penn State, U of IL, U of NM, etc. Many of the midwest flagships are located in the capital city, e.g. Ohio State, U of WI, U of NE, U of MN (sort of).

Jefferson was anti-city, especially for a college location.

It makes sense for him to build his college near his home because he designed it and oversaw its construction.

I don't see any advantage for locating a college in a city from an academic standpoint. Many of the universities located in urban areas have had challenges expanding their campuses.

It may be a benefit for students who need to work part time.

There are typically no more than two land grant universities in a state.

Many of the land grant universities were already established prior to the Morril Act that gave money to states to create agricultural colleges. UGA is an example.

Uni of SC had the agricultural college for awhile until Thomas Clemson donated his plantation for the creation of a separate agricultural college.

I do agree though, Georgia Tech gets a lot of people out of state.
Georgia allowing UGA and Georgia Southern to offer engineering programs has helped to keep more students in state.

No.


And--Georgia's 1-2 punch is written as "GT and UGA," or "GT-UGA."


Get it right.

The only ones who think that are those who went to GT. Outside of that sphere UGA is by far more well known.

I went to UGA and am more than comfortable recognizing Tech as the premier public university in the state. It gets top billing.

I went to UGA as well (grad and undergrad) and agree with that. I guarantee you though more people know UGA than GT. UGA is quickly nipping at the heels of GT. UGA is the state school and would naturally be more well known because of its size, history and impact on college sports.

Not out here in Colorado. This is a very "techy" state; most people have heard of the good tech schools such as GT. But UGA? Yeah, if you asked most people they'd say of course they know Georgia has a big state u, after all, doesn't every state, but as to any specifics about UGA, no.
