Kicked him right in the face
Sunday. 11.8.09 5:59 pm
Not much of interest has been going on with me lately. Doing homework, college applications, hanging out with friends, managing to waste hours every day, etc. It's no-shave November, which means the fact that hair seems to grow on my face asymmetrically will be glaringly obvious by December.
I need to get my wisdom teeth taken out.
I don't know how I feel about colleges right now. Take MIT for example. I DEFINITELY want to go there. But do I want to go there for undergrad school? Would it be better for me to be at MIT for the rest of my academic career, to go there and then to somewhere else for Grad school, or to go somewhere else and then MIT for Grad school? I dunno if I want to pay for 6+ years of MIT. But, yeah. Part of me dreads getting accepted, so I can try again for Grad school and get my best degree from MIT. Part of me is just excited to go no matter what.
Also, if I don't get in to MIT, what's my secondary choice? Clemson in particular is confusing me; a TON of my friends are going there, but I've always been half-opposed to the idea of going where EVERYONE in South Carolina seems to go. I'm sure I'll have no problem being accepted. I just want to stand out. And meeting new people is kind of exciting. So I'm completely torn.
I feel bad because I'm not giving much thought to the other great schools I'm applying to, like Brown or Cornell or Virginia and Georgia Techs. Actually, there are more that I just don't remember. Fantastic.
It all depends on what you want to do with your life.
College stuff is really confusing. But its honestly about where the best place for you to be is. It's not a good idea to base where you are going, for where your friends are/aren't going. It's just where is the best for you. Take your college days and go to your top 4 (I think you get like, 2 college days a semester? At least that's what I got) and go to those colleges and *seriously* consider them. Take in all aspects and base your decision on that. For me, I know where I am right now is not for me. But I've been to the campus, and I know what the department is like that I'm interested and while, yes a ton of people I know go there, I feel like I am making the right decision for me.
Go with your gut.

that's awesome. if all else fails and you can't get into it now, i'd definitely keep it as your grad school option. by good luck to you, and i really hope you do get in! :)

Go where you think will give you a good experience... try new things and such. :P

I've decided CofC for undergrad degree, then USC for my masters. It just makes more sense. Live the full college life and experience, then when I really need to get down to it, USC will be the place for me. I mean, it's number one in the nation for International Business. that's what I want to major in.
Where ever you go you have to make sure you'll like the place you're at AND the school.
