[選校]威斯康辛Madison還是Penn State

這兩所學校\"整體\"都滿好的(但不知整體而言兩者\"好\"的差距程度), 暫且不比較專業領域上的排名(都挺好的,都可以接受), 想請教對這兩學校與地方熟悉的先進們, 能否比較一下這兩者間的生活.環境.文化.交通.氣候.學習氣氛...等讓我參考一下呢? 或是他們有何特別吸引大家的呢? 因為我要出國讀書, 可能要一至兩年才會回臺一次, 所以希望盡量了解並謹慎選擇一個未來要長住的環境, 先感謝大家的經驗分享!

Update:

這麼問好了....

我曾在溫哥華市郊親戚家待上近一個月,不知以上提到的兩個學校和我所待過的溫哥華,相較起來是偏僻還是繁忙?或者,要是你們會選擇哪一所學校呢?

    Trust me, do not attend Penn State!!! Last year, I was a student at Penn State, and life was terrible. I wonder the accuracy of the high rankings that Penn State earned. Basically, Penn State is located in the middle of nowhere. It is hardly like Vancouver. Secondly, the only "thing" that students love to do is "partying." Penn State is notoriously known for partying, drugs, and consuming massive amount of alcoholic beverages. Thirdly, you will attend tremendous classes! The class size ranges from 100 ~ 300 students for lower division classes. Last semester I took ECON 2: Microeconomics and there were like 300 students in that class.  Fourthly, professors slack too much. One of my professors hardly came to class! Fifth, the weather is horrible at Penn State. Pretty much you only get snow or rain at Penn State. It is extremely cold in the winter with tons of snow pouring down from the sky everyday! All in all, I will not recommend Penn State. I am pretty clueless about University of Wisconsin- Madison. However, one of my friends told me that Madison is pretty similar to Penn State. 總之 PENN STATE 超爛! I am transferring out of Penn State this coming semester. I will either attend University of San Francisco (USF) or University of Southern California (USC, an admission decision is still pending.)  Good luck!

    The tone of life at Penn State is slow and laid back! Penn State is 2.5 hours away from both Pittsburg and Philly (費城的縮寫). I strongly urge you to reconsider your plans. Trust me, my life at Penn State was horrible!!!!

    To David,

    I transferred to USC after my first year at Penn State, and loved it! ^^

    我想這位COOLANT仁兄大概有點過度反應吧 你說的這些問題似乎是個人不適應 不代表這學校就不好 我也到過USC 希望那天你不要抱怨被搶 或是車開太爛被人笑
