Update....

UAH was absolutley incredible and they are leading as far as meteorlogical schools go. They have so many oppourtunities to get jobs and even have a summer job with the NWS. Huntsville is also a great town and I am just so excited!

You'll be jinxed for snow there. Huntsville already had their big snow for the next 20 years or so. :P I kid.

About 2 miles from campus.  Not going to go into detail.

Oh Eric lol ever since the day I registered on this site there has never been a dull moment.  ::whistling:: Toast probably thinks I am crazy or something like that. I just really like the size of Huntsville itself. It is much bigger than Lawrenceburg, but not as big as Knoxville.

Yeah, I was just funnin'.  Huntsville is a good city, and well within driving distance for you.  If that's where you want to attend, far be it from me -- or anyone else -- to *steer* you anywhere else.  I can appreciate your enthusiasm and only wish I had half of it when I was your age.

Well God has blessed me and I am thankful. I am down to Mississippi State and UAH. Mississippi State was a great visit and they also have an SEC football team so they are still in it.

There is some good football in the North AL area. Not SEC caliber, but good football nonetheless!

I can't wait until I go back to WKU. If you go to MSU and do broadcasting we may be competitors on the college stage. ;)

If I went there and we were competitors then the loser would have to go to either a Tennessee or Vandy game and wear the schools colors. If I won then you would have to go to knox and if you won I would have to go to Nashville.

Yes Adam, I would encourage you to go to this school. The professors in this department are very knowledgeable and friendly. At least those I have taken classes with. Unlike other colleges Huntsville is a prime location for networking and research and I visited/applied to some swanky schools before coming here. Like Toast was mentioning UAH broke ground on SWIRLL (Severe Weather Institute Radar and Lightning Laboratories) just recently. Should be a big opportunity for student involvement.

Not to mention being tightly wound with the NWS - you can actually be a student met at WFO HUN, which is directly across the street from campus. :)
