No one is ragging on him about saying Fiji is nice boys or whatever (although saying it on the internet could backfire on him). They're just saying he is NOT going to get an answer to his above request on this site.

In all fairness, if you look at the rankings (that I know some people don't agree with), Penn State is ranked #45 and WVU is ranked #164. Like it or not but, according to rankings, PSU (regardless of the debacle and what is going on now) is seen as a better academic institution-just as UNC-Chapel Hill is seen as a better academic instituion than PSU.

Why does anyone care WHY the OP is transferring?

He's already given his reason, so I don't see the point of playing this game of "My alma mater is better than yours."

I agree but, someone said something about being upset about how WVU is inferior. It isn't. In fact, it is a great school. I just think to transfer at a time like this is somewhat cowardice. That's all. I don't agree with what has happened but, I won't turn my back on my sisters, friends, students, and other alumni at a time like this. Good luck with rush when it comes to finding a brotherhood that wants a "loyal" brother.

How do we know he wasn't planning to transfer prior to this Sandusky debacle?

You're right-we don't! I find it a little odd that he is looking at it now, though--don't you? Good riddance, to him. I hope WVU is very happy with him.

You're insulting a poster because he wants to transfer to a different school for better financial aid?

als463, I think you might want to just step away from all this for a little while.

When the Tucson shootings occurred last January, I found myself responding emotionally rather than rationally to what people were posting on GC. I stepped away and found that in the long run that was the best thing I could have done.

Personally speaking: I voiced my opinion much earlier in this thread. I will continue to offer prayers for healing and compassion for all affected, and it would seem that this is affecting thousands of people now.

Please, "cowardice" is a bit harsh. I've been planning on transferring to WVU since the beginning of the semester. The only reason I stayed at PSU this year was for family reasons, so I suppose I'm pretty loyal. I have nothing to do with the current debacle, and I take my education too seriously to transfer over such a thing.

Okay, so I still have no idea what to expect. If anyone has any information regarding the WVU registration/rush process, I'd really appreciate if they could share that info with me. Please and thank you.
