    No, it's looking bleak. Money is very scarce, and they want to feel comfortable. Been looking at scholarships everywhere. Ohio U has a gateway program i'm looking into. Bowling Green has decent money as well, but I don't think my heart could be there. Their reasoning towards me not applying to the NE was that the cost of living was too much there, and I won't be living in the dorms much there. It's hard, because I know i'm educating myself about colleges each day, and they are just being arrogant, but they're paying for the majority of it, so I don't have any leverage.

    I'm in USC Honors (a freshman and a Carolina Scholar) and let me say that it honestly doesn't feel much different than regular USC. The only reminder that you are in the Honors college is if you live in Maxcy (the honors dorm). You can choose if and how many honors classes to take and you can decide how much time to devote to the Honors part of your education. If you don't get in now, apply your second semester. You can always keep applying until you get in. The big attractor for me was the money that I was given to attend. You can make your education as good or bad as you want at USC and you have to decide how to balance social life w/ academics. I took 3 honors classes and also pledged a fraternity. I made a 3.3. I could have made a 4.0 if I would have spent all of my time studying but balancing a good social life was more important to me and you can do that at USC while still taking hard classes and learning a lot which is why I love it.
