I'm in the process of applying to a number of colleges right now. It has actually been quite a stressful time for me. Can't wait to be done with it, hopefully accepted somewhere.

I'm doing the same thing, but with Grad School applications. so much paperwork, and application fees  :'(

But it will pay off in the long run.

And if not, or not to your ideal College/University, start at least *somewhere* and transfer to your first choice. This often is the easiest path in undergraduate education rather than straight from high school, especially if test scores are not around what makes your application competitive.

The only things you miss out on is the "college life" discussed previously. If you do your transfer in one calendar year, then this will be a null point basically.

Funny story....

Final year of my 2 year music degree...

Jan 2nd. Struck down with mystery illness.

Get insomnia ( again ) and tinnitus temporarily gets worse. ( It's better now )

Right when i'm supposed to be writing my dissertation for my degree, housemates gets unbearably noisy so cannot get any peace at home to write.

Final performance involves putting a band together to perform any 4 songs of your choice.

Plan was to play 4 of my own songs that I'm really happy with.

Not one other student wanted to help me out.

Quit degree.

 :tup I love life obviously.

Well I hate to give a shameless plug for my school, but hey, consider Southern Utah University.

He could travel across the country and become a thunderbird, but no reasonable person wants to live in Utah.  The lack of caffiene and all the mormons would drive the average person insane.  His better option would be cross a state line and get taught by a DTF member.

I was actually scheduled to interview with Southern Utah, but once I had two offers from schools out east I decided there was no way I was moving across the country to live in the middle of nowhere when I could live in the middle of nowhere on the east coast.  Also, that position had no chance of becoming tenure track, whereas the one I have now becomes tenure track next year under fairly easy to meet circumstances.

Come here to Bethel University, where you must sign "The Covenant"  :\

Which prohibits you from, lest you face disciplinary action and/or expulsion:
1) Smoking on campus
2) Gambling on and off campus
3) Going to a strip club
4) Browsing porn ( the workaround is to use a 3G/4G enabled device)
5) File-share

What the fuck? I mean, smoking/gambling on campus, file sharing, arguably even porn I can get on some level. But going to a strip club or casino? That's just absurd.

I agree.

I don't partake in those activities myself, but if on the weekend, I want to go and gamble, it's my choice and my life, not the school's. Obviously you can go to the casino still, the school isn't going to waste time trying to track you down, but the rule itself is absurd

It almost seems like they want you to fuck like rabbits, unless you just left that off.

In that case, you just gave everyone the best reason not to go to a college affiliated with religion.

I'm realizing that I'm a bit behind everyone else in that I don't have a job or intership yet and I'm a senior. Uhhh....shoot.

For our business college, it's basically required that you have an internship before senior year.

That certainly sounds like a good idea. Currently I'm applying to the following:

UNC Chapel Hill
Duke
Brown
Cornell
Oberlin
Vassar

Brown is definitely a little bit of a reach, Duke and Cornell too (although not as much as Brown). While Oberlin and Vassar are no sure things, I'm quite confident about my chances there. UNC is practically a sure thing. Ideally, I would go to one of these places for very little, or no, money.

Oberlin is a nice place.  They recruited me to play football, but I wasn't going to play for a Division III school that hadn't won a game in over 5 years at the time.

Not all of them are bad. This one, in my opinion, is far from bad. None of the things listed I do, besides porn from time to time. I enjoy the campus, it's gated and on a lake so it feels like a true community. It's beautiful here.

The school across the lake, bible is a REQUIRED MINOR.

Formal languages final was yesterday. Did rather well. I'm working on my computer architecture take-home final right now (thank God it's take-home, by the way), and then I'll have to spit out a social sciences paper between now and 7PM tomorrow. Physics exam on Friday.

I got an 82 on my math final. It was my lowest grade in that class all semester.

Tonight I am handing in my psych paper and doing a presentation on it.

The rest of my finals are next Tuesday.

I got a 99 and a 96 on my two Aural Skills exams (Ear training and sightsinging respectively). This is a HUGE accomplishment, because everyone says that class is the hardest thing you'll ever have to take as a music major, and I fucking destroyed it. I also passed my performance jury, so finals week is off to a great start. I've finished my theory take-home final exam, and I've just got Psychology, Piano, and Music History to look forward to.

Friendly advice: don't email your professor for your grade.  Our mailboxes are full of these messages and we don't have time to answer them all.  If we aren't grading finals, we're writing them for another class.  Or grading finals.  Or grading term papers.  Or grading something else.  Or holding study sessions for other finals.  Or in faculty meetings.  Or proctoring a make-up lab or exam.  Or trying to figure out if we want to curve, and if so, what that curve is.  Point is, we don't have the time to process umpteen requests for your grade when we have more pressing matters at hand.

Sincerely,

Every professor who ever lived.

UPDATE: College is awesome and my first quarter there kicked ass. Can't wait for what winter quarter has to offer. Also starting my major finally.



Also ended the quarter with a B+, an A- and an A. Bringing me to a 3.6 gpa. So happy.
I felt its length in quite a few places.

Yet I'm still applying to get my second masters degree.

I had my business problem solving final today. I'll miss that class. That professor was hilarious, but I would never fuck with the guy  :lol He was a sniper in Vietnam and is well trained in hand to hand combat. He may be in his 50s/60s but still.

His stories were great!
