    Do you personally know anyone that was denied admission to OU?

    If so, why were they not accepted? Whatever became of them?

    I'm sorry you were denied admission.

    I do. She ended up going to KU. It was back in the 90's but I always thought that was odd. I dont remember why she got denied.

    Yeah, had good enough grades and ACT scores to get in. But didn't knock either one out of the ball park. Was not an Oklahoma resident and therefore, placed on waiting list. Ended up going elsewhere.

    Not personally, but when I was going to college, if your check cleared you were admitted to OU.

    NOW however, it's tougher, especially for out of state students. OU is still relatively inexpensive compared to many state Universities.

    Had a couple friends from high school get denied. They ended up at OSU, Tech, or community college.

    I suppose it depends on what you're studying. Does KU have a better business or engineering school than OU?

    KU is a good school. OU is a good school. I hate to admit it, but Lawrence is a cooler college town than Norman.

    Or a music scene, a bar scene, microbreweries that can actually brew 6 pt beer, and cops that dont bust you for PI the moment you step out of the bar. Also a campus corner that is fun for college students with more than just antique stores and overpriced preppie clothing stores.

    I don't think you are doing Campus Corner right... There are MANY good places on CC to get drunk enough to get arrested the minute you walk out of the bar... if you are into that sort of thing.

    But, it really begs the question. What kind of drunk ass dooshnozzle are you that you are THAT leery of getting busted for PI by Norman cops? I've been getting drunk and doing stupid shit in Norman and CC for about 20 years now and I never once felt like it was some great danger of getting a PI.

    Have ever hung out in Lawrence? Do you actually know what you are talking about?

    Where is a good concert venue on CC?

    Where can you get 6 pt microbrew on CC?

    I grew up in Kansas and received a full scholarship offer to go to KU... so yeah, I'm familiar with Lawrence...

    But, honestly I could give a shit about live music scene... If I cared THAT much about it I would have gone to ****ing ut for college. And, is a 6pt microbrew seriously THAT IMPORTANT? These seem like some pretty small things to be so concernced about. But hey... to each his own.

    Familiar does not mean you've been there. I'm familiar with Stoolwater. For all I know you grew up in Wichita, got the offer to KU, but never actually spent time there.

    Live music and a good bar scene are pretty important to me for a cool college town. What is the point of brewing 3.2 beer? What is so great about Norman as a college town IYO? The nice library? The arches? The landscaping?

    Also, the point is to NOT get arrested the moment you step out of the bar. I guess Im the kind of Douchnozzle that doesnt like being harrassed by cops who dont really do any other part of their job. Ive never been arrested but several friends have.I dont think anyone enjoys getting arrested. That is pretty stupid assumption on your part.

    I've done my share of partying in Lawrence. It just wasn't that cool to me. I've just never felt like Norman was at a shortage for bars/restaurants. Aside from live music, I don't know what else it is you are looking for in a bar scene. Norman and even CC have a good mix. Now, the 6 point issue isn't a Norman issue, that's a state issue. But, honestly I can get a coaches brew and I don't sit there stewing because it's not 6 point. Does it really make THAT much of a difference? If I just NEED a six point I'll order an import bottle. Again, it just seems like a small thing to be so hung up on to me.

    I know this... I have NEVER felt like I'm missing anything because of the bar scene in Norman. When I go out I'm with my friends we have a great time no matter where we go. So, I guess I just don't see what you main contention is, unless live music is just that important to you.

    It wasn't so much as an assumption as how you made it sound... you make it sound like being harrassed by cops is just a scourge that makes Lawrence so much better than Norman. I am messican and I drink and I have never ONCE been even close to harrassed by police. And, in all my years in Norman and partying on CC the ONLY time I've ever seen cops doing much of anything is when some drunkass needs to be dealt with. So, again I just wonder what it is you are doing that makes you bring up the cop harrassment like you did.

    Like I said, different strokes man... if you like Lawrence better, that's your prerogative. But, to me other than some terrain and a different favorite sport... there really isn't that much difference between the two places. Just my opinion.

    It is about the music for me. I do love free state brewery and wish we had something like it. I have lived in Norman since 4th grade and I probably have more experience with the police than you do, however, you can find alot of stories on this board about the Norman PD being ****s. In high school my biggest crime was having long hair. I got harrased almost on a weekly basis just because of how I looked. If you have not been harrassed by them yet it is either a matter of time or you are just lucky.

    Not even trying to be funny, but my nephew was denied entrance this year. He went to OSU. He was accepted at OSU, Arkansas and Kansas, but not OU. OU has more difficult entrance requirements than most local schools.

    About 7-8 years ago I had another family member denied entrance. They went to TCC for one year and reapplied. They got in the second time and graduated from OU a few years later.

    I went to OU in the late 80s/early 90s. If you had a pulse, you got accepted. Since Boren took over the entrance requirements have increased dramatically.

    It may be. That is debatable. What is not debatable is that US News ranks OU ahead of KU, and KU's entrance requirements (which you can certainly look up if you are so inclined) are lower than OUs.

    OU also raised requirements when the texas schools came into the BIG 12 because UT said so.

    What's funny is you could graduate from OU, UT or KU as an engineer, business or a medical graduate and your salaries arent that different. Regardless of where US News ranks one over the other.

    Definitely. The same could be said of most schools. School ranking has nothing to do with the quality of the graduate. I've worked with worthless Stanford Grads and brilliant NSU grads.

    Agreed, unless you went to a Top 10 school when it comes to being a Lawyer or MBA your chances of making the same salary as everyone else is about the same. So when people get in debt worth a fortune to go to NYU, Harvard, USC especially on student loans for an undergrad degree of any kind is really really mind boggling.

    So it's settled then, KU is better than OU. Solid work, fellas.
