    I definitely agree. As soon as I have enough saved up, I'm going to spend a sem abroad at South Africa. Been wanting to go there ever since I was young and I'm definitely not passing up the opportunity.

    Hey guys, I have a question. When applying to colleges, should money be a factor? I mean, I really want to apply to an ivy league as an early decision and I do have a slight chance that I might get in, but its $42,000 a year. Should I go for my dream and do my best or be restricted because of money ?

    Go ahead and apply to the ivy leagues schools you dream about, Darkensoul. If you get accepted, then your first call should be to their financial aid departments. There are so many options available to students. Don't give up.

    If you think you have a chance of getting in, I say go for it! There are lots of different ways you can get money to pay for tuition. The school's financial aid office can help you. Just be sure to apply to other schools with more affordable tuition as well, just in case. You want to make sure your options are open.

    There have to be websites that list all kinds of available scholarships - anyone have any suggestions?

    www.fastweb.com

    That's the primary website for scholarships. You can sort it by what major you're interested in, your background, etc. etc. Its a very good resource. Many universities also have grants and private scholarships of their own that you could find on their financial aid website.

    Yea, thats what I am thinking . Thanks guys. I am certainly applying for scholarships and I am going to work my butt off for these 2 major ones; one from my internship and the other from my school.

    I told my parents, who aren't paying any tuiton , that I will do whatever necessary to pay. *sighs*...only 1 more year.

    Heh, I was almost gonna make a College Life thread but I see there is no need for that now that I have found the official College Life thread.

    Anyways, my question for you guys goes something like this...

    I have been #1 on the waiting list for a Playwriting course that I've been wanting to take. You see, the kicker here is that I have been #1 on the list for over a week now and there appears to be little to no progression on moving into the class. My confirmation date is on September 5th, the same day in which classes start.

    My question to you guys is do you think I should show up to the Playwriting class on the 5th anyway just to show my initiative in wanting to be in the class or do you think I should wait? What are your guys' thoughts on my dilemmia?

    Jen... If you don't have anything scheduled, then I would absolutely go and show up to the class! You can introduce yourself to the prof before class and let him know your situation. Then, when he's doing that first day's attendance he'll know at that time how many people actually showed up... and will be able to give you a good idea as to whether there's an opening. Chances are he'll let you in no matter what.

    It can't hurt. I've seen it happen (back in my day... ) because the mucky-mucks want to keep a class limit but the professor doesn't really care. So go... go!
    Never let the things you want make you forget about the things you have.

    Thanks for the input Broadway. I've discussed this with some of my friends and they're also all for the idea of me showing up regardless (even my mom suggested the idea to me in the first place) and I think I am going to go through with it.

    My first day of classes is tomorrow so I will let you all know how it goes over.

    Oh, and the professor is a she.
