I think you just missed my point
yes, but with so many now (at least here) putting caps on admissions, if you only have the one, your out of luck, or have to wait.

True most of the other colleges in the Columbus area are private, and can be very expensive.
However several of the private institutions/universities in the area do offer many graduate programs.

OSU for example like you were saying does take the majority of attention in a city. I think it can be either a good or bad thing. For myself I prefer small to medium sized universities.

this is a problem right now for even the brightest students... if admissions are capped you are SOL.
Also the problem going on now is, even if you are in, lots of classes got cut so you can't even get in. I know somebody who could only get into ONE class she actually needed this past semester at a major school and was planning on taking full load.

Yeah that's what sucks about some colleges. Your required to take certain classes ,but they get full so quick. I registered early at Texas Southern (school of about 9000 students) and two of the classes I needed were capped. The classes that go the fastest are the core classes.

sucks man, really there is nothing u can do either, even if you are on early registration doesn't help sometimes. I remember it happening *sometimes* on like ONE class I might have wanted when I was in school but talking to people now it is outrageous. These people have their life on hold and are pushing back their graduation time because of bureaucracy

Syracuse has both. We have Syracuse University, which is known for it's communications, education, architecture and social science programs and sports. Then, we have LeMoyne College, a small Jesuit college, that actually has a good sports program that is going D1 for all sports in a couple of years and is good for those going into education and business. They aren't too far from each other on the East side of the city, which is the nicest and maybe the most "diverse" part of town too.

Anyway, I think both are fine options for local people, but also for those from outside the area, with SU having an international flavor to it as well.

We also have three SUNY 4 year campuses within 45 minutes of Syracuse too(Oswego, Cortland and Morrisville).

Can't forget that very good private schools like Colgate University and Cazenovia College are also in the Syracuse metro area too. There are 2 community colleges in the area too(Onondaga and Cayuga).

The Minneapolis area has one, very large university (U of M 51,000+, which usually ranks between #1 and #4) and several, smaller universities and colleges.

Forgot these 2 SUNY campuses in the city: ESF | SUNY-ESF | College of Environmental Science and Forestry

SUNY Upstate Medical University
(Le Moyne changed in terms of sports, still D2)

Anyway, unless a place is strictly a college town or a small town/city with a small college, most other places will have multiple colleges/universities. Even some college towns like Ithaca or Amherst MA will have multiple colleges/universities.
