  • Thanks again for the thoughtful replies. I have another interesting question pertaining to GPA. Being that I took AP classes in high school and transferred to my current school from another 4 year institution, I'll be leaving here having only take…
  • Thanks for the replies. To be more specific, I'm taking the final 3 credit elective to fulfill the 120 credit requirement as a visiting student during the intersession at another school; the course will end in the end of January, and once the trans…
  • Thank you for the suggestions. I know about the whole health insurance dilemma--it would cost $7,200 to go here another semester, plus I wouldn't be earning any money; I can deal with a lapse in insurance before finding a job with coverage. My o…
  • Thanks for the replies. I was wondering if I could get some more input on this from everyone. Unfortunately, the TestMasters and PowerScore courses offered this summer extend into late August and September, and I'll be away at school by that time.…
  • I don't know much about Geneseo graduate options, but the school's reputation in the NY area is solid. What's wrong with schools in the NY / PA area? You have Cornell, Columbia, Fordham, NYU, Yale, UPenn, U of R, etc.

  • Hey thanks for the responses everyone! To clarify, going to school in a very rural area is not a problem for me. I have no intention of going into politics, so an internship would only be something for real world experience or to enhance my resume…
  • collegehelp, Thanks for the reply. I live on Long Island so Stony Brook is not an option (I want to go away, not commute). Private school would be great at the three you mentioned in NY, but they'd be a fortune. AU is roughly 40k a year with t…
  • . . . I forgot to mention: I've heard Geneseo is the best school in the SUNY system. Is this true? Also, I intend to go to law school or graduate school. Will Geneseo's lack of national name recognition (if this is so) be a detriment for my …
