I am new to this site and the mom of a current H.S. Junior son hoping to go to Cal Poly fall '09. It has been wonderful and enlightening to read all of your posts. I want you all to know I was up very late one night reading posts from back in Nov '07 to present, rooting for all of you to get in! Congratulations to those who did and best of luck to those going elsewhere and onward. I was pulling for you jackht27 to get into Arch., but I am sure your future is bright at Oregon. My son will be trying for the Arch. major as well. We visited campus in March and his first choice which had always been Notre Dame quickly became C.P. (I was very happy for that as C.P. is alot closer to home)My sons stats are very good and he plans to apply ed...however, he is under no illusions, he knows it's going to be tough as an Arch. major so he is doing all he can to improve his chances.
I have learned a great deal from all of you and appreciate how helpful you all seem to be with one another. If my son is fortunate enough to get in, he will be in good company...sounds like your parents have done their jobs well.
