Columbia  
I'm getting more nervous each day! 4 more days until I find out -- March 31 5:00 PM. I'm so scared. I want it so bad!!

I visited on Wednesday and omg, I loved it! I really really hope I get in. If not, I'm going to USP because my other choice is RU NB and lately, I've been reading up on Rutgers and I don't agree with their beliefs. Basically, they base EVERYTHING on your SAT scores. To qualify for a scholarship, you need at least a 1300 on your SATs plus top 5% if you want 5,000 a year. That's insane! It's only a state school... seriously. Maybe I'm also saying this because I got put on their wait list for the School of Pharmacy -- and even for the school of pharmacy, they only accept like 500 in the nation. idk, I guess I'm just bitter...

Anyway, Columbia was amazing! It's its own little campus, no need for a shuttle. There's an Asian market right outside (M2M) as well as a Japanese place, which is my fave. They have a HUGE library. My parents got over the whole money situation and are now like "I really hope you get in..."

Also: The NHS induction ceremony for my school was last night. It felt like a mini graduation. The third marking period ends Friday which means NO MORE RANKING! I can finally relax. I didn't do too well this MP, I'm expecting low A's, even in my elective. Oh well, I was AWESOME in the first two MP's, so that should even it out. I hope I go up in my rank to #3, but if I don't, it's okay, I'm fine with being #4. Man, I can't wait for graduation!

Prom for me is May 23 -- I'm still waiting for this guy to ask me.. So I'm getting nervous about that too. The deadline is April 18. UGH!

I'm too stressed out. I have so much homework this weekend -.-;;

I love how all the Ivy decisions come out at the exact same time. I also enjoy the randomness of it being on a Monday at 5pm.

Also waiting on Ivies. Monday is unfortunate. Wish decisions came out tomorrow instead. >(

Good luck with Columbia!

ahhh ia completeeeeeeely! everyone is always on my ass about why i don't want to go to prom. my grandparents especially are "disappointed" that i'm not going but for the price, i expect a full-course meal, a pony, and maybe a stripper.

I didn't go and I can tell you that I don't regret my decision one bit. I saved my elders quite a bit of money in the end.

To the OP: I hope you get into Columbia! That will be awesome. And if it doesn't end up working out (though hopefully it will) I'm sure you'll end up loving your school, whatever it is. I'm going to an instate public school next year and I couldn't be happier.

Best of luck! :D

Thank you! I decided not to look online tomorrow. I mean, if I get rejected, it'd suck to be rejected twice -- once by online and once by mail. lol

I didn't get in. It's okay though, I'll try again next year.
