I'm being a bit harsh...I just remember driving through corn fields having not seen anything in 100 miles on the team bus when all of a sudden the sign for University of Illinois Champaign popped up. Everyone said it was a fun school but playing on the indoor facility (which was nice) surrounded by cow fields was a bit weird...no as a SoCal guy I couldnt do Champaign...now Madison is a Big Ten spot that's nice...

UIUC has a distance learning program called NetMath and it teaches from Precalc to Probability Theory, Linear Algebra and Differential Equiations. Our son took a few courses there while in high-school and liked them quite a bit. I've generally heard good things about them.

The northeast isn't the greatest of places if you want to play a lot of tennis. Winter means indoor courts which means greater costs for college programs and just doing pickup practice.

That's very true. Did many of you decide to go to college based on tennis availability even if you're not playing for the school? Maybe I should transfer to a school in a warmer climate and graduate in 2010.. and maybe get an STI from partying too much :p

Yea, my little sister is currently taking Calc 2 through that program. When I first heard about this, I thought it wouldn't work out too well, but after seeing the stuff she's learned and the program she is learning it on, I'm very impressed.
