Family Support Question
What if my family doesn't really care where I go as long as I get in somewhere.....where's that option?
My state school is further from my family than the higher ranked school I got into. Also, they don't care where I go as long as it is where I think I will be happiest.
not to be the biggest critic of these polls (i hate polls!), but what information is this poll trying to uncover?
what does the title "family support" have to do with your question? i thought you meant family Monetary support. you mean just family company don't you? and also, the answer i put, although it isn't gonna happen in my specific scenario, is that i'd go away to the higher ranked school. why? not because of family support or family company (what am i a little Baby still attached to his parents--there's a point where we grow up and leave the nest) but because the tuition is cheaper instate. it's awesome that my family would be closer, but if it were the same tuition and a big name school versus a regular state school, i would leave!! so isn't THAT what this post should be asking? shouldn't it be more specific.
that's the thing, polls are never specific enough (nobody listens to me!). because if the question is: would you live away from your family to go to a higher ranking school or would you stay at the smaller school JUST to be with your family, then i don't think this SDN crowd (come on, you know SDNers are high achievers) would have voted like good old country boys and said "i wanna stay near the fam here in Mississippi, and withdraw from Harvard cuz it's too impersonal up dere." cuz i can't believe that it's pretty much tied on the poll.
this POLL is not specific enough, nothing important can really be learned since there's no specific goal that these questions are getting at.
What the ****?!?! You just bumped an 8 year old thread to post a link to that?
Unless I'm missing something, it looks like you're the one who bumped the thread.
