Good luck and Godspeed.

I'm finishing up my last semester here at Ball State... Got to love the post-college years, though. I'm so not looking forward to them at all. >.<

Yup. Indiana University of Pa, actually.

I'm lucky, I don't have to worry about post-college life for a while... I'm going for a Masters right off the bat, probably. I just love me some debt.

I'm going to Illinois State. I've done as much as I can so far, the stress was in applying.

So far I've gotten into NYU, Syracuse, SUNY Geneseo, American U, Vermont, Siena.

I got waitlisted at Villanova, those jerks.....even though thats where I really want to go.

I'm still waiting from Fordham and Notre Dame, although ND is a big reach for me.


So far I'm thinking I should go to NYU. Its very expensive and I'll be in debt up to my eyeballs, but its a damn hard school to pass up.

Well, what are you majoring in?

Personally I would choose Syracuse

college life certainly is crazy. I'm graduating next year (it would be this year, but I changed my major). It seems like it just gets crazier. I'm trying to work out stuff for my apartment so I don't have to live on campus anymore. I will have to get in my stuff for graduation next fall, and I have to start looking for a master's degree program I like and HOPEFULLY get into it. I know one of the schools I am looking at can be hard to get in, so I'm coming up with a few backup locations.

Good Law school.

I know that it is very selective only allowing in about 26% of their applicants but even with that I just can't see how they can be a top tier school while having 40,000 attend. :? Paradox.

But congratulations on getting in to such a good school.
