    I'm the youngest junior in my undergrad program (19 yrs. old) and the average is graduate at 23 after 5 years, because many people change their major to URP later in their college time.

    Akron

    Yep, every second car in Akron has a U of Akron parking sticker. I am an Akron graduate in geography and planning too. In 1995, they were begging people to study planning, by the time I graduated in 1997 the master's program was taking 1 out of every 3 applicants. It is a great school, the only drawback is that AICP takes 3 years instead of two because it is not a pure planning program. Also, studying outside the department is not encouraged--urban studies and transportation engineering, for example.

    U of Toledo is a very interesting program--very postmodern and hip.

    For my money, I like popular culture at Bowling Green, or the campus of Gambier College. However, I was on tuition waiver and a graduate assistantship, so it wasn't my money.
