    ask your counselor to send a mid-year report. s/he should know what to do.

    basically, they want to make sure you haven't decided to take 3 electives and english OR have senioritis in august

    actually a 7-semester transcript is probably plenty

    Well since I only needed English to graduate I took extra classes. My school said they will send out the report on Friday. Wish me luck!

    Go Tigers!

    Best of luck, zman! I hope to see you there this fall. Yep, Geaux Tigers!
  • zman13zman13 Registered User Posts: 155 Junior Member
    Okay, so LSU said after I send my grades in I should hear back within a few weeks.

    Geaux Tigers!

    hmmm...never heard of the Ragin' Cajuns

    University of Louisiana Lafayette Ragin' Cajuns

    They are inferior to LSU in every aspect, hence LSU does not waste its time concerning itself with ULL.

    I visited LSU over the weekend. The campus is beautiful and everyone I saw looked incredibly happy and comfortable there. I loved it.
  • thisdude415thisdude415 Registered User Posts: 260 Junior Member
    actually most agree that UL has better programs in nursing and in graduate computer science

    for everything else they're teh sukc

    anyway, my point was that they're not completely inferior, but lsu would obviously like to change that

    you couldnt possibly trash its petroleum engineerng program; they have better placement and higher salaries. I mean it's right in an oil city. The freshman class had a 100% placement rate for internships for those that wanted them, and they have smaller class sizes. I'm going to had to pick between LSU and UL soon, and it's going to be tough. I'll just hate to not be there on Saturdays at lsu.
  • zman13zman13 Registered User Posts: 155 Junior Member
    Well I know all about Saturdays at LSU, you will have the time of your life. When the band marches in from the street...its crazy!

    Trash talking is all in good fun... My wife has a BA from Nicholls and an MBA from ULL (was USL when she attended - University for Slow Learners), and she has a 20+ Yr. career as a accountant. Her brother has a BS from LSU, a BS from ULL, and an MS from Southeastern - he makes 6 figures / yr. A certain school can definitely factor into your first job after college, but it really comes down to what you can do. I've seen people with degrees from more prestigious universities struggle due to deficient people skills. Make sure that you can continually learn and work as part of a team - and network.

    Okay, so LSU has had all of my information for about 2 weeks now. I still haven't heard anything. When do you guys think I'll hear back?
