Now that all the college crap is coming in, where did you guys get into (applies for high school seniors obviously)?

Order in my email:

rejected
rejected
rejected
rejected
accepted
rejected

Then two more rejected.

I'm going East Coast though, I'll make sure to be fully supportive of the East Coast cause so I don't have VACC trying to kill me.

John Hopkins, here I come!

Ompa:
I study at Johns Hopkins over the summer (neuroscience). It's a great campus. Are you going there?
I thought you're already in college. Confused...

Nope, I'm definately a high school senior.

I'm a high school senior as well. I'll be heading off to BC next year, although I've known this for a while because I was accepted early action and, as such, made no effort to apply anywhere else-

*EDIT* My bad, congrats ompa haha

Well as a fellow Wisconsinite, I can tell you that UW is a great place to spend four years of your life. I know you want to get out of Wisconsin, but really Madison is a great town and the campus is great. I mean how many schools can you go sit on the lap of Abe Lincoln at?

You totally are gonna go to school 45 minutes from me!

TIGHT!

And congrats too, Johns Hopkins is a freakin legit college. Now that you have nothing to worry about, have fun slacking off the rest of senior year! Seriously, don't feel bad about not doing any work either, you've earned it. Working hard for 11 3/4 years to get into college is totally worth the 1/4 year of partying your senior year!

I'm going to be staying within Minnesota. I've been accepted to both U of M - Twin Cities, and UM - Duluth. I haven't applied to any other colleges because I'm almost positive I'll be going to the Twin Cities.

Luckily for me, I've had the opportunity to take College-in-the-Schools courses, so I'll have almost all of my freshman year done. I'm taking that time to "get in touch with my inner self". Not to mention how much it's going to save me as far as the pocket book goes...I received these credits free of charge. :nugget:

That's really cool that you're headed out East though. I considered it a while back, but it'd be difficult for me to get into a school out there. And then to afford it...oh snap. I'm content to stick fairly close to home. Still, I'll be 2 1/2 hours from home.

ompa, do you have any idea of what you might major in? I know we still have a while to make a decision, but I'm just curious. I'm likely going toward Physical Therapy. Of course, then there's political science...that plagued our boards a while back though, so I'm not going to go there again.

3D, where do you live in Taiwan? I believe I'm going back for a family visit in a few months.


Sure, his family could live in a non-native country, but maybe it's his country.

I've been accepted to Winona State here in Minnesota, North Dakota State, and the Milwaukee School of Engineering and am looking into Michigan Tech. I'm going for Mechanical or Composites Engineering.

Hey, if you go to Hopkins, you can make the DCNO's. I can even pick up up, b/c I usually stay in baltimore with my gf who lives like a mile from Johns Hopkins.

FYI:
Colleges for me (5 years ago)
Loyola College - Waitlisted
Towson University - accepted (where i ended up going for my first semester)
Roger Williams University - accepted
Emerson - accepted
TCNJ - REJECTED HARD!

Then, I ended up transferring to Ramapo College and finished my career there last year.

Um I didn't mean it in a bad way..... I have never applied to a college , so I don't know if he got rejected or what. I didn't know if that was an example Ompa gave us or what.
So STOP assuming things!

Grats Ompa, I hope you're happy and successful with the college you chose.

I was wondering how people are paying for their colleges, especially out of state. Out of state tuition (both public and private) for college seems close to $30,000 a year, which for me is no small sum. I'd gladly go out of state if it weren't for this cost issue. Are people getting scholarships? Loans? Jobs? Since I'm likely to do a double major, finding a job during the school year would seem to defeat the purpose of affording college for me. Places like Stanford and MIT have very strong financial aid programs, but you still leave college with big loans to pay off, which is something that worries me. Maybe this is just the way college goes.

Since everyone's on the topic of Cornell, here's a fun fact: Cornell has the highest suicide rate out of any school in the country.


Interesting, no? But the reason behind it is not that it's that much harder, it is the same as any other ivy league college difficulty-wise. But there are all kinds of beautiful gorges and crevasses in ithaca which are great for sightseeing and hiking along, but also grat for jumping off! So its simply a matter of convenience.
