Just felt like sharing :) It's a small Catholic liberal-arts college here in PA... it's really nice and it has a great campus.

Or just major in education as well. Anyway, I have never heard of a college to decide acceptance by October 10, nor have I heard of people who have applied by October 10. So nice job being original. Which college, may I ask?

Cabrini College. They actually sent me an application and told me to apply back in August (I think) but I had to wait to send in my transcripts from school.

But you are going to apply to other schools, though, correct? This isn't binding in any manner, I hope. I mean, nothing against Cabrini, but what are your GPA, class rank, and SATs/ACTs like?

Beware, o world, of another religious/right-winged nut with a degree in political sciences!


Well, we need something to counteract all the left-winged nuts with poli sci degrees.

No, I'm going with Cabrini. I have a full scholarship and I really like the school. My GPA is 3.76, my class rank is 11 out of 294 and my SAT is 1160 (on the old ones - 460 math, 690 English).

Good; full scholarships are always a good choice, especially if you are considering graduate school. On another note, to iron eagle, I suppose "very good" is quite subjective.

You know, I'm going to be pretty blunt here: 460 + 690 = 1150. But that's still about 150 points above the national average. And I have to admit that 11 out of 294 is really good. It beats my 7 out of 175...well, technically.

RIM-SHOT!

No offence, but everyone saw that comment coming (about right-winger going to a place that has the words Catholic and Liberal in it..)

I personally misread the school as Catholic Libel... Gotta stop smoking crack before 7 AM.

Sorry, typeo :) I really hate my SAT score IMO. I was shooting for at least 1200.

congrats, I know applying to colleges is a bitch, i went through the whole ordeal last year and goodness I was so glad it was over. And look! You dont have to worry about rejections if you got into your first choice right away. At my school rejections were a bfd, everyday around the time letters came out there was some kind of tear blubber fest going on. And also im envious that you got to pick your own choice, I got into west point and my mother and grandfather just wouldnt let me go :( bleah.

I got lucky with that and the first letter I got was an acceptance from my first choice school.

Whoo, now I get to spend all night screenwriting....

...freaking screenwriting....

I don't mean to be an asshole or anything here, but you made a typo on the word "typo." It just entertained me. It was...ironic, perhaps.

Either way, you really have to aim way below your capabilities. This way you are never disappointed :-P.

I'm only kidding; it's good that you strove for greatness, and for the several failures you will inevitably incur in doing so, it will only make it several times better when you do finally achieve one of the goals you have set among the stars.

I actually aimed for a 1450, the first time. I actually thought it was not only unlikely, but out of my ability completely. The second time I took it, I was absolutely sick, and could hardly read the questions on the test. Surprisingly, I boosted my math score, but my verbal score, predictably, fell considerably.

No matter what our scores were, FreddiesGhettoTrench, they were high enough to leave us in a very comfortable financial situation in college, which to me is extremely critical, especially in this day and age where tuition fees are soaring, and the price of living is hiking up room and board fees.

By the way, congratulations.

Where are you applying?

Anyway, I know in my school, the guidance department was a must-avoid if you wanted good college advice. If your school is the same way, I wouldn't hesitate to come here. As I recall, we have quite a few college-savvy people here.
