Doing applications and getting things together for grad right now, and I'm applying to a uni in BC. I want to stay close to home for the first year because I know the transition is hard. Still not sure what I wanna study though, but I'm interested in Bio & Anthropology (and a ton of other things). And maybe I'll transfer or study abroad at some point.

I went through this acceptance/rejection process 2 years ago, so let me just advise you guys not to get too fixated on the decisions when they arrive. Once you enter college, whether it's your #1 dream school or not, you'll be the one deciding how you live. I know someone who got into Caltech and proceeds to smoke all day and ditch classes. Meanwhile, someone else I know who is in community college works hard everyday towards becoming a professional designer.

College is just a start.

A rare piece of wisdom from the ancient one!

So, I decided to wait on more information before posting this but now, I think I've gotten all my data.

I made it into UCI, UCSD, and USC. Now that all their financial aid has come in, I've discovered that USC has given me a need-based half-ride. With CalGrant and the National Merit Scholarship Presidential grant, I can go to USC for about...$5000 each year. That's room, board, tuition, books, and all additional fees included.

My prayers have been answered~

Guys
Anyone who's a senior or went to college at the following schools I'll mention at least

I'm having a really tough time deciding between two of my favorite colleges that I got accepted in(Carnegie Mellon and NYU, if you wanted to know) and I really need to know: which college would be best for me to go to? Like, I really want to study in New York, but I heard that the Psychology program in CMU has helped a lot of people with their salary. WHAT DO I DO

Also, congrats, blaZ!~

Major is really important, you should say what major you are applying for for each.

NYU is freaking expensive, do you have that covered? Both places are really cold too.

Also, both really great schools! Congratulations!

@CureRainbow: I know some people in both schools. Want me to get some insider info about those schools for you? I'll need to know the kinds of majors your interested in to get in contact with the right people.

Miaow~

I'm packing today, and tomorrow I'll be off. The last time I moved house, I was two months old ...
I think lots of other people have started university already. This year. And also there are all the old fogies who have already done their first year of college, and all the wrinkly fossils who have already finished it altogether, and all the cool cats who didn't go at all.

Commence -- University Life Discussion Thread --

I'm kinda scared, especially about interacting with others.
