The university I want to go to is the University Of South Florida.
The reason I want to go there is because I really want to get my Ph.D. in Marine Biology.


What is yours?

I'm going to Reed in the fall. Why? Because it's in the Pacific Northwest (yay, rain!) and is supposedly a fairly intellectual school full of weird people.

3.) or a really good performing arts school so I can major in theater so I can be a drama teacher

Somewhere not in America, perhaps in the UK or Canada. If that doesn't work, somwhere in a big city like Juliard for music or theatre. If all else fails somewhere "prestigious," but I hope it never comes to that.

Ahh ... I still have two years to go ... But i'm defineatly looking at my options.

1) McMaster Univ in Hamilton, Ont ~ This is one of four universities in Ontario that has the midwivery program that i need to be a midwife I've also heard very good things about the campus and the nursing program (I'll have to get my RN/NP first, and then do midwivery b/c it's just easier that way, i think)
2) Queens Univ in Kingston, Ont ~ They only have nursing ... So i'll do my RN/NP there and then move on elsewhere, where i can find the program i'm looking for. Daddy wants me to go there and since i'm controlled really easy when it comes to education by my parents. They're cutoff mark is 89 ... something i don't have. So i doubt i'll end up here.
3) Ryerson Polytechnic Univ in Toronto, Ont ~ They have the midwife program i want ... and every other univ. in Ont. has nursing (which is good for me, b/c ontario is seriously lacking all kinds of nurses) ... Also, it's right smack dab in the middle of my fave city in the world ... TORONTO!

Wish me luck

I went to Loyola College in Maryland for my undergraduate degree, and I've been at Purdue University for the last three years, where I got a master's degree and am now working on a Ph.D in rhetoric and composition.

I go to McGill University. People here are snobby and call it Harvard of the north, but you've probably never heard of it There are lots of Americans here, though. It's cheap for them, and they get to drink at 18! Rents are pretty cheap in this city too. I don't know, the campus is nice, and supposedly I'm getting a quality education. Or maybe I'm just going to school with a bunch of rich brats with big egos!

I'm only 14, so I have a ways to go yet, but within the next few years I hope to be good enough to get into a good music conservatory like Oberlin or Curtis, maybe Juiliard. They're all pretty prestigious, and they're close to home, so that makes them pretty optimal. They're basically the Harvards of music - if you graduate from Juiliard, you've got it made.

On the other hand, if I'm not good enough for music school, I'll probably end up at Massachusetts Institute of Technology or Princeton (with its Plasma Physics Laboratory) studying Nuclear Physics or Astrophysics or something of that sort. My grandfather was the nuclear engineer on the sub that was supposed to launch the nuclear bombs on Hiroshima and Nagasaki, but their guns were pointing in the wrong direction, so they sent a bomber to do it instead.

Pretty eclectic, eh?

When I was younger, all I wanted to do was go to Berkeley. Then when I was 14 my family took a trip to NorCal and I got to see some of the campus. Unfortunately, I picked a day when there was a riot going on.

That same year I'd investigate other colleges while on family vacations. I finally narrowed it down to Northwestern University (the place where my parents met and I was much later born), or Georgetown. As a backup plan, I applied to five University of California schools in case I wasn't accepted for my first-choice school.

As it turned out, I was accepted everywhere I applied...but my mother passed away just before it came time to make a decision. After a long talk with my Dad, I figured it would be smarter to stay local to keep an eye on my family.

So, as my name implies, I've been at UCLA for 4 years and I have enjoyed it immensely. I'm hoping one day to come back and get a Master's in Urban Planning, but we'll just see about that.

Juliard! That's the one I was thinking of but couldn't get the name of.

Does anyone know how hard it is to get into there?

Unless things have changed in the last...umm...more than a decade, it isn't easy.

You do need to have a very solid foundation of musical training and talent, and it is a small school.

In addition, bear in mind that Julliard does not have dormitories (unless, again, that has changed recently). the cost of living in NYC is HORRIBLY high, so you will need either some pretty decent money every month for reant, meals and living expenses, or you will likely have to work full-time while studying there.

I ended up not going to Julliard (afiter three full years at a performing arts school which included serious opera study and graduate-level music theory) simply because even with scholarship, there was no way I could have afforded living expenses there during college.

Look around though, and just bear that in mind -- that doesn't need to turn you totally away from it. But other colleges also have excellent music schools, like Oberlin, for instance.

I'm going to GW in the fall. They have one of the best political communications programs in the US..and their hospital (if I go the med route) is amazing as well.

I was going to go to georgetown but I didn't accept the offer b/c I wasn't comfortable in their learning environment - aka the classrooms - which i really learned 2 yrs ago during a summer program there. Far too religious for my taste. So GW it is! (same city, lol)

buffchick - [flips through [/i]the insider's guide to the colleges[/i]] - juilliard does, in fact, now have a dorm. it's new, apparently. however, it is extremely hard to get into, probably cuz it's so little (465 undergard students.) they only take 8%!

those of you considering performing arts (there seem to be a lot of you) should maybe consider the tisch school at NYU. very prestigious, but wicked cool.

thisguy - come to MIT, please do! you'll be right near me.

exit seraphim - your bf is going to school of the holy cross? is that the holy cross that's in massachusetts? one of my best friends is going there next year too.

CallMeBuffChick,

Julliard is basically impossible to get into - you pretty much have to be an upcoming Yo Yo Ma on your own instrument. However, other music schools, such as Oberlin, where most of the outstanding musicians in my area have gone, Boston Music Conservatory, and many others are just as good. Actually, one girl opted for Oberlin over Julliard, so just keep your options open.

I'm at Concordia. Of the two English schools in Montreal (McGill being the other - see Rizzo's post) this is the accessible one. And it's very accessible.

For a population of about 25,000 students, there are only residence spaces for about 150. About half of the population is comprised of part-time students. Most classes are held during the day, but a significant number go at night. I've been in classes where 8 or 10 over-60-ish (agewise) people have been enrolled.

Oh, and the student union here is probably comparable to that of Berkeley. Just a few months ago military and security agencies (Canada's answer to the CIA, basically) had recruiting tables on campus. Some members of the student union protested, ultimately flipping over the tables.

There's seriously never a dull moment here.

I'm applying for University of British Columbia, University of Toronto and University of York this September.

And if anyone knows of any good Unis in Melbourne with relatively few Singaporeans, please throw some names my way.

My dream Uni would be Columbia University doing Journalism. *sigh* Bloody US dollar.

Lin, if you're applying to Canadian universities for journalism, two more you might want to consider (there are a number more) are Ryerson in Toronto (neither York nor U of T have the program) and Concordia, where I'm at.

I'm actually in the Journalism program here at Concordia. Seems pretty average to me, but I love living in this city. I suppose you'd need to learn another language to get along here, however. Good luck!

I want to go to Mills sooooooo much. I visited it over winter break and I've been obsessed with it ever since. The only problem is convincing my parents to let me go there. It's all the way across the country. That's one of the big reasons I want to go there. If they refuse to let me go, they can't really stop me, they can just make my life more difficult by not paying for college. Unless I get some sort of big scholarship I won't be able to afford Mills on my own. So in that case, I'll go to the New College of California, which I can afford on my own if I get a job and stuff. It's this alternative liberal arts school that looks very weird and cool. It's in San Francisco so I'll visit it this summer. I don't remember who said this already, but I also really want to be a sexuality educator(Scarleteen has so inspired me :P). My big silly plan would be to teach English and Sex Ed. at a highschool. Hey . . . if gym teachers can teach sex ed., why not English teachers? So, does anyone know of any colleges that have any sort of program for sexuality education? More likely I'd have to do it in grad school, but I also have this other very silly plan. I could major in English-Creative Writing and minor in Human Sexuality(I swear I saw this at one college), and then go do that teaching certification thing, because I think that only takes a year or two. Ok, I plan way too much. I'm only a junior. BTW, my girlfriend wants to go to Reed, so that will work out nicely that we'll both be in the northwest. Heehee, I'm already planning that we'll still be together over a year from now and we've only been together for a month!
