It's cheaper to go to West Virginia as an out of stater than PSU in-state. Let that sink in for a moment.

WVU is really only considered for most jobs here in PA or surrounding Appalachian states. A degree from PSU is highly regarded in almost all major metro areas. This isn’t a fair comparison.

That’s not true at all? My degree from WVU got me a job right after graduating in Atlanta

Are u joking. This is why I say it’s not highly regarded. Atlanta metro is in Appalachia LOL.

Wtf are you talking about? It's one of the fastest growing metros and economies in the country

>Atlanta metro is in Appalachia LOL.

If we're calling "part of North Georgia" as the Atlanta metro, I guess? You should get out more.

Unless you're shooting for a fortune 100 company, nobody is gonna balk at a degree from WVU.. Additionally, after being in the workforce for a few years nobody gives a fuck about the school, just that you've got a degree and what your experience is

Even then it really comes down to your degree. I had a few friends get jobs with ExxonMobil & Lockheed with their engineering degrees after graduation.

What do you expect from a state that is pushing for genocide on its trans youth.

Glass houses... PA is just purple enough that Republicans could take back the House & governor and we'd be right there with all these other states passing "don't say gay" laws and trans healthcare bans. Don't think it can't happen here too.

I know it can happen here. That's why we are so vocal about it.

Also, call them what they really are. Genocide Bills.

Makes sense. WVU is a better school in a better location IMHO. State College sucks donkey balls.
