Hello all,
It's that time for high school seniors to start receiving acceptance letters from colleges and making a decision. I've gotten into RIT, Boston University and I'm still waiting to hear from Northeastern. Can anyone tell me about these schools? Maybe from first hand experience? Where else did others get accepted into? Looking very forward to your responses.

I am about to finish my undergrad degree at BU in May and will be starting grad school here next fall.

BU is a very expensive school, I'm pretty sure its the most expensive one you mentioned. Education wise, BU is wonderful (all though I'm a little disappointed with modern American history)

What made the exhorbent tuition prices worth it for me was that I genuienly enjoy my time here at BU
Do not underestimate this aspect because if you choose BU the tuition will get to you at some point or another I promise you
And if your into prestige and that junk, the name of this school does carry some weight at least where I call home in Los Angeles. People over there always impressed simply because of the name.

If you ask me, choose BU!

RIT is a lifeless school in a lifeless town. It's a jumble of cloned brick building on a sprawling dry campus. Better have a car here, or it'll be a pain in the ass to go anywhere. Down the street is one of the largest strip-mall districts in Crapchester; pretty much everything you could need is a mile away. The airport is also a mile away.

Across the street from the main campus is MacGregor's, a great bar with over fifty beers on tap; microbrews and imports, mostly. Probably the best part of RIT residence. If you're over 21.

I got into the University of Texas at Austin, the University of Texas at Arlington, University of Maryland, University of Nottingham, and University of Sussex. The best decision you can make is to visit each campus. That way you will know if you will be happy there.

Cheers,

Hello,
I received an acceptance letter from Northeastern...kind of. I was accepted into the program I wanted, but not for Fall 2004 but for Spring 2005!? They said that they would wait list me for Fall 2004. How odd.

Dontlikeairbus,
I sent you an email asking you a little more about BU. If you didn't get it, I was wondering if you could tell me where the best place is to live as a freshman? (Warren, the Towers, Shelton?) Are they carpeted? How is the food? Anything else I should know? Thanks, and looking forward to your response.

I got into Notre Dame, Cornell, Bucknell, and the U of R.

Some advice.

See RIT before ever making a decision to go there. It has consistently rated as the ugliest campus in America.

Arch89U,

You got in at ND!!!  Big thumbs up Congrats! And it looks like you've gotten in a lot of other really good schools too! I'm a senior at ND now and I've absolutely loved my past 4 years here. Maybe I'm a little biased but if you haven't made your decision yet, definitely come to Notre Dame! (However looking at your profile it looks like you made the right decision!  Wink/being sarcastic ). Good luck and if you've got any other questions about ND feel free to ask!

Accepted at Emory, Wash U St. Louis, Claremont McKenna, Southern Cal. (with a scholarship), Northwestern, Pomona, and Yale.
Waitlisted at Georgetown
Rejected from Harvard, Penn, Stanford, and Brown.

Will choose between Yale and Pomona, and I am doing an overnight stay at each within the coming weeks. If I end up hating both of them, I'll probably go to USC.

USAFHummer: CU-Boulder is where alot of the kids who are at the lower end of my class are either heading or are considering.

ARCH89U: If you decide to go to Cornell, tell me, as I have a good friend who is 95% sure that he is going there.

DFWLandingPath: that's incredible that you got into UT-Austin. Kids at my school were being turned down left and right or offered CAP. The top 10% rule really dicked over alot of people in my class who wanted to go to UT.

Us330, you got into Yale but waitlisted at Georgetown? Strange.

I got into Emory too, but ended up choosing U.Michigan. Emory is great if you're going to be a Doctor. If you're looking at other options, I'd recommend Yale. Actually, in ANY case, I can't see why you wouldn't go to Yale. Pomona's nice, but I couldn't see many people passing up the opportunity to be a Yalie.

You're gonna love GW. I'm down there about once every two weeks because my girlfriend goes there. Hell, I wish I went there. Don't think I could ever leave Penn State though. I have way to much fun.

No one heading up here to University Park, PA?

Kappa13, did u go to JUEL this past weekend? I was gonna host a prospective student but then found out I couldn't because of my work schedule. You are an aviation major (like myself) I assume. If you've visited, how do you like this campus compared to the other schools- dorms, cafeteria, etc?... Anyways see you this fall.

Judging by the schools that Us330 applied to, the kids in the "lower end" of his class are probably smarter than the higher end of most high schools... just a thought.

A330Fan1... you can't go wrong with either school. Both are excellent academically, and both are places that you can have a great amount of fun with.

Good luck to everyone in your decisions.
