    Dear Will,

    Congratulations! It is my great pleasure to tell you that you have been admitted to the September 2003 entering class at Hampshire College.

    Hampshire? Oh my... I visited there during my class trip. I... well, lets say I have a less than favorable opinion. What drew you to it? Why did you like it? I thought the art program and some of the facilities were cool... I'll save my blow-by-blow until you reply. Regardless of my opinion, it is a very difficult school to get into, and I congratulate you. Good job Will!

    Sounds like someone didn't get into cosmetology school.

    Congratulations, Will. :)

    Amherst is a wonderful place to go to school.

    Study, learn, contemplate.

    You will have a wonderful time.

  7. iplaybass- Hampshire is definately the kind of place you either love or really dislike. It is weird, but that's one of the things that drew me to it. In addition, I liked the academic freedom. I had no clue what I wanted to major in and I thought Hampshire offered me the most oppurtunities to experiment and figure out how to tie all my interests together. I started being interested in Literature and History, then Sociology, then Physics, Oy Vey!

    Thanks everyone! Can't wait 'til Sept! MMmmmmm. I can almost taste the cafeteria pizza now. :D
  8. You don't want to taste cafeteria food. I have yet to eat well at our cafeteria.

    And you might wanna practice getting your alcohol tolerance up ;)

    Haha... well, I would agree with that assessment. The thing I did like about the school was your ability to take classes at any of the 5 Colleges and get a totally customized degree that way. Too ultra liberal for my blood, at any rate. The only thing I can't get over is the soundproof yurt. I couldn't believe it. A soundproof yurt. For $35k a year, they could get a recording studio.;)

    Basswizard if it was up to me you would be out of here!!! Trust me this is beyond a warning!

    Everyone else, remember do not engage a troll or flamer, it makes a thread go down hill when you all are bickering. Report the post and ignore. If not you create a lot more work, along with having to edit the trolls posts plus all the quotes and comments from others. It is Heroic that you try to defend someone but in the end it doesnt work.

    Thank you,
    Your friendly trash remover.

    By the way congrats!:)
  18. Awwww, Odie did such a good job that I missed all the fun stuff...[sulk]

    Congrats Will! :) They let you take any class from any of Hampshire's colleges regardless of which one you're actually in? That rocks, I wish they'd do that at Michigan; there are barely any cool music classes I can take here because I'm not in the music school...
