i know my last post about schools was all about schools in the plain states... a couple of schools in the Midwest were suggested by my professor over spring break:
1) Ohio State University
2) Wisconsin - Madison
3) Michigan State University (local for me, about 1 hour drive)

i heard a great deal of faculty left MSU and they're program is lacking.... so im kind of feeling reluctant applying there... as for Wisconsin and Ohio State, i have no real idea about their programs or faculty, so if anyone knows anything hit me up... also the only reason im not applying for University of Michigan is cost!!!!! $10,000 a semester for graduate school in a (PUBLIC) university....i got friends there and they say the financial aid pool is non-existing.... so that limits to the prior schools i listed and those 3....can anyone help me about the 3 i mentioned?
