04/24/2012 - 6:05pm I certainly do agree that

I certainly do agree that "name" does play a role in one's success (and I certainly would refute that working with an elite faculty is not indicated in my profession - it definitely is). But I think one thing to keep in mind is who finds the school elite and does it matter if they do? I have met and worked with numerous upper-echelon faculty from many other schools with my research and can tell you that plenty of them have a reputation that is not backed up by talent. The OP needs to really probe into what others within the profession think of the various programs because being buried in debt going to an overrated school (and they do exist) is not worth it. One more point to add - having less debt allows one to take more career risks such as taking a lower paying job upon graduation that has obvious room for exponential career growth (very prevalent in the OP's career) versus taking a higher paying job with less options for skill and knowledge enhancement in order to pay off enormous debts. Never an easy decision!

04/24/2012 - 5:31pm Go to the cheaper school

I'm currently getting my Doctorate in Physical Therapy and feel that you should go to the cheaper school. I had options from the top PT schools in the country and chose to go to a slightly lower ranked school where I could get tuition paid for via a graduate assistantship. And I couldn't be happier and more successful. Ultimately the education you get is what you make of it. As long as the other option is average or above you will have all the tools you need - more important is your individual effort and getting great clinical rotations (pretty sure you will have some?).

Anyone else notice on the BTN telecast of OSU how negative/critical Glen Mason is towards everything OSU? I like it don't get me wrong, but his remarks scream jealousy given that he practically begged for the OSU job that was given to Tressel.

10/25/2009 - 7:26pm I agree with mgonate

I agree with mgonate's sentiments that we must continue to run the ball between the tackles. Obviously as any astute fan knows, you must pass to set up the run and all of that but Minor is a flat out stud and we should ride that horse (along with Brown and occasionally Shaw outside the tackles) until the opposing team can consistently contain it (and by it I mean minor as he is questionably human).
