Hi, I have a question about being a Capstone Scholar.
Appearantly, I was selected as one... and would like to know more about it and its benefits... the USC website was somewhat vague...
I would have applied for Honors College... had I known you actually had to apply.
Right now I have to decide between USC and UConn.
Both gave me scholarships but UConn also admitted me into their Honors Program and right now I'm leaning more towards that school... the only thing drawing me to USC is its International Business program. (My intended major) Costs of both schools are just about equivalent.
More info... my family is moving down to Charlotte in two months from Connecticut so USC would be closer than home. I'm sort of the... why change when I've got a good thing going kind of guy... and right now a lot of my social life is with friends up at UConn... and potentially my gf going there as well. I've heard all about not letting friends and whatnot affect my decision but I'm also trying to pick what's best for my future... socially which would greatly affect me academically.
I've been contemplating this situation for the past 3-4 weeks and haven't gotten to a distinctive decision yet although it's about 55/45 towards UConn at the moment.
Any input or comments would be greatly appreciated. Thanks.
