    Dude, college is good and all but not Temple. They are lame because my ex got accepted there and she is stupid evil *** ***** that has her head shoved up her **** and the music abilities of a walrus . Seriously, you don't want to be in an environment filled with ****** like her. Go to a real school.:mad: :mad: :mad:

    I'm headed off to Baylor University in Waco on August 21. I'm excited, but also very nervous :(

    Any other Pre-med students out there?

    Well, my college path is a tad convoluted (just a tad)

    This September, I'm attending Mount Hood Community College for 2 years. The first two years at any major university are spent on core classes and requisites anyway, so instead of paying $8,000 for two years, I'm going to a CC for for two, spending less than $6,000 for TWO years.

    After I get my associates degree, I'm transferring over to a major university (not yet determined) to finish out the major (be it a bachelors, masters, or PhD)

    I plan on majoring in some facet of English, like Journalism, with a minor in Film or Teaching. I possibly might get an English degree, then go into teaching, or something. I'm not quite sure. I just know the two things I love to do more than anything are write and direct.

    Neither is a stable, dependable income. So I might end up teaching to support my other passions. I dunno.

    i was actually accepted to Brown, but declined to attend after seeing the tuition/room & board rates. Amazing!

    is no object to me...

  14. Berklee, or the URI music division. I need to get my f****** grades up before I even begin to think of college.

    I'm going to Arizona State University. I wanted to go to NYU but ASU is major cheap and has much hotter females on campus. God Bless the Females!!! ;) ;) ;)
  16. if i ever stop sucking at art-stuff, i'll apply to mass-art.
    otherwise, it doesn't really matter. i don't think i'll be doing anything with my life, anyway.

    After attending one of those lame ass computer-geared trade schools I've decided to go to a real school. It's going to be another year before I can attend so I'm looking around right now. So far, Bloomsburg Univ. looks pretty good. (I'm moving to Hazleton soon)

    Still thinking about an MSc of some sort but the longer I stay in this office job the more that idea dwindles away...
