Best thing is to start here. Many of the Urban Campuses are usually pretty shaky crime wise. But you have to check each school individually, even some county schools, U Florida in Gainesville used to have one of the highest campus crime rates in the US when I checked 10-15 years. It was 80% rape which is really a reflection on the culture as much as on the crime rate.

As joepa said about Penn State it's large crowded campus. Still has a great rep, beautiful campus and is in in a good location. Check out class sizes as well, smaller classes make a big difference. I went to a small Private school, the U, with tiny classes usually 10-15 at most, but paid Harvard prices to do it. Ohio State was/is/changes by year, the largest group of students in the US in one place, OK school, I would not go to any of the big crowded campuses, but that's just me.

I don't know anything about CSU, but I do love Ft Collins, not as much as Boulder and U Colorado though, but its in Colorado and is a great place for all of my hobbies, don't know what your son likes to do though though.

Sorry, sounds like his life is fun to me, all those things you mentioned are boring compared to the things I did in my life INMO, Swimming, Bike Racing, Triathlon, Tournament Table Tennis, Hustling Pool, etc. Prior to going athletic, it was pretty much music 12 hours a day. Never had time for any of that stuff, the few times I did were some of the most boring times of my life. All my late night parties were with study groups in the data center, library, or sitting on a stage or in rehearsal hall. Study groups are only boring if you are not always the top student in your class and all the hottest ladies want to be in your group.

More good news arrived on the mail today, my son has just been admitted to Marquette's Honors Program. Not that I have a clue of the benefits other than a exclusive building that houses only Honors Program students (by the way, the building is awesome). I know they offer some additional core courses mostly focused on Literature, also they get faculty mentoring. Other than that I got 0 clue what the real benefits are, but they surely make it sound good

Congrat's 80s. I have nothing to add, but I just read that Stanford is offering free tuition for households with less than $125k in income. http://www.usatoday.com/story/news/n...-aid/25237483/

Yea I read it few days ago and surely I'm under that income...but Stanford was neither one of his options nor Stanford was gonna admit him. Still he took his chances on Hopkins, Harvard, GATech and Duke...none admitted him. Those were the only ones to deny admission and would have surely given him more aid

My first degree is in mechanical engineering, and of the "engineering" schools on the list, Purdue is probably considered the best. I've never visited the campus, but have universally heard great things about the school.
