I've only applied to one, and I'm not going there. I need to write my personal statement for Bradley, which is where I'll be going, God willing.

i've only applied to one college so far. I haven't heard anything from them, but they have a 99.93% accaptance rate, so I better get in. Other colleges I might possibly apply to: University of Tulsa, OU honors college, Trinity U (Texas). I haven't applied to them yet because I'm too lazy to fill out the apps., essays, etc. for places I probably can't go to.

If you can get into those other schools do not go to Kutztown. Or try to avoid it. Its not a conducive environment or your aspirations. That said, its a fine state school, but you'll have to fight to stay on track. I know one kid there that is pre-med and he's doing great for himself, but I feel KU won't afford you the opportunities other places can.

Congratz to all who got into their school of choice! Once I finally finish my personal statement (talk about procrastination, it HAS to be in by Sunday). Bradley University all the way!

I'm accepted into the University of South Florida, 7 year med program. I've got a beyond spectacular scholarship and I'm most likely going there- I can't see anywhere else I applied beating their offer!

I'll be interested to see where else I get in, but I'm totally excited about USF.

LSUs a really mean college; or so I've heard. At least their football team's nasty that is. Then again I do live in Al so people might be a tad biased around here.

Thanks! I'm so excited--I toured their science center this past summer and it so looked fantastic (and well-endowed). Their dorms, however, are another story...

can't speak for the dorms myself, but I know my friends were somehow able to get their own floor and turn it into the floor for sci-fi nerds. (these two friends making their own sci-fi floor did not surprise me one bit)

Oberlin seems like the type of place that really lets you explore whatever you want during college.

Yeah, when I toured it, they said they used to have a Sci-Fi floor, but it came to an end when the founders graduated. Must have been your friends! Talk about a small world...

Really? Wow! That makes me feel really cool...

What do you expect when the team cannot win the need-to-win games?

They were like that when they did win games too... I think it was partly Saben. He's extremely... pigheaded.

Another newbie here. I just got into Case Western which is my "temporary" first choice! Not sure if I'm going though as the school is only 5 minutes from my house! Plus, they offered me a $20,000 renewable scholarship, which is great, but that only covers half of their ridiculous tuition so I need to start looking around for extra $:xf:

Welcome!

I looked into Case Western as well, but frankly, I don't think I could live in Cleveland. Not too fond of it. Congratulations, though--I know a few people who went there who enjoyed it very much. Good luck with the scholarship search...

In addition to USF, I've been accepted into Florida State and my top choice: University of Chicago!!

So this means I really need to work on that scholarship thing.
