    @CSIHSIS

    I don't understand how that means your not getting to college. It's one scholarship relax a little.

    Hmm for me it is annoying. I got finals. I just learned that sat scores take weeks to deliver unless u rush it. Need everything done by December. I failed my Thanksgiving goals.

    It only takes a few days to deliver. I sent mine to PSU on a Thursday and on Monday they said they had all of my materials.

    UC app went out last night! Woohoo! 5 schools down (4 UC and my SCEA), 13 to go! Well, anyway, only 3 more apps to do, the rest are done already.

    OSU (my safety) app done and out.

    Next is Duke and then I have to finally which other schools I'm applying to. >.<

    I'll let the estimated cost of attendence decide in the end. And acceptance rate. Of course.

    ***

    I also came up with this really rigorous (read as "much more rigorous than the mean) way to do people's chances. Just gotta work on the details.

    SAT scores take weeks to send? I sent mine on the 6th and my schools got them by the 13th.

    I'm more worried about my transcript, on one of my applications it's not showing as being received. I requested them over a month ago and they were sent before my SAT scores were.

    Le sigh.

    Also I have the mother of all colds and a half-day of school tomorrow.

    ^i do too. It's finally ending, but the cough is persistent and really strong. Wednesday night my throat was so sore that it hurt to talk. After that ended, everything else started:/. I should probably go to the doctors because I'm pretty sure I have bronchitis. This is what happened last time I had it.

    So you know how some colleges only look at CR/M on the SAT? Or at least value them more? Do they do the same for certain sections on the ACT or do they only care about comp?

    Wow, you guys got them fast... unless FSU was just really backed up on mail. It was nearly 2 weeks after I had my scores sent that they acknowledged the receipt of them...

    But if PSU will be getting them fast, that's nice... sending my scores to them, Oklahoma, and Purdue tomorrow.

    All the schools I've looked at/ talked to and everything I see online says its composite score for ACT

    I have this friend, who really wants to go OOS, (BC or BU) but her parents think it's too expensive. She's tried showing them how much more financial aid she'd get from OOS schools over in-state ones. I feel like so many parents do the same thing. They look at the original price and think that's what they're going to pay. They don't realize how generous most expensive schools are. It would cost me more to go to a CC than it would to go to an Ivy. So many people just think that they have to go where they can afford. If that were true, I wouldn't be able to go to college or I'd be stuck at a community college. Besides aid you get from FAFSA, there are so many other random scholarships out there that add up.

    This logic is just something that bugs me.....

    Hey guys, what are you doing for thanksgiving tomorrow? I'm running a race in the morning then going to see my grandparents/cousins. I'm already dreading both parts of it. Family situations are always really awkward.

    Also, I don't know how much longer I can take this wait. I have a countdown timer on my computer with the # of days till Dec. 15th, and I feel like it's going so slowly. 24 days and 5 hours till I find out about early decision...
