The parentals won't let me.

And it's fucking weird 'cause if I get into NYU, she has to pay all 36,000 each year. The family income exceeds the average necessary for financial aid.

where did you go


Amherst. I dropped out but I got reinstated for this fall coming up, even though it will suck.

I'm already something like 30 grand in debt, after 2 years. When I study abroad it will be even more, probably graduate 70-80 grand in debt.

Let me say that the college experience is different for students depending on their family background and income. If you're a rich kid like OhSnap, then you probably won't mind these bs schools as much as I do.

Now if you're like me, going to a so called "top school" thats shit, and you're gonna be 80 grand in debt by the time you're 22, yeah, thats not cool.

My plan is to go to St. Johns for 2 year sand transfer to NYU, hopefully it works out.

I am involved with a few extracurriculars so hopefully that'll give me an edge getting into college.

Does anyone know about the COAP program? career oppertunities in the accounting profession?

i don't think you'll have a problem academically or w/ extra-curriculars, it's all what the admissions people are looking for.

i know SATs are important but how important are they?

ridiculously important. most schools UC status or lower basically only look at SAT and gpa (in my experience). top private and ivy league schools look less at SAT scores, but to be competitive you need 2100+ (and to get in with that score you need incredible EC's or need to be a minority).

UC = university of california

You could have a 2.0 GPA, get a 1600 on SATs, and you could get in nearly anywhere...

probably any CSU and a lot of the UCs depending on your SAT scores

collegeboard.com is a good place to start looking

edit: I'm applying this year for a transfer from modesto junior college to sfsu for fall of '09. hopefully I get in... I had like a 3.5 gpa in high school, have a 3.2 right now and got a 29 on the ACT. if not, I'm off to chico

I hear they mostly look at junior year grades.


Well, that's what I hear. So I'm busting nuts this year. My freshman year, surprisingly, was my most successful year, grade-wise (not bitch-wise, i gat no gamez smh).
