I am usually not one to brag, but something amazing happened.

Some of you may know that UofL accepted me into its Honors Program, which is a major accomplishment for me.

And today, I was called down to the school's office. I didn't know why; I thought I did something wrong. Turns out, Morehead State University sent an admissions counselor all the way to my school to come talk to me and get my ACT scores. I was surprised to hear this. So I showed him my scores and emailed them to him.

We began talking about what I wanted to do and then eventually digressed into my hobbies and interests. I showed him DDO, and he was very impressed with me and some other members. Turns out this was an admissions interview, which it seems I passed because he admitted me to MSU on the spot in the front office. He also told me that, with my scores and GPA, I will get at least an almost full-ride merit scholarship to MSU.

So, needless to say, I am happeh.

I can afford the entire tuition, provided I get into a good college.

I most likely won't even stress too hard over a good college though, since I will get a Masters degree either way. I can just go to an easy college, get straight As, and then get into a good university to pursue a Masters.

University of Chicago for college, but the leftists there will drive me crazy. For university, most likely UPenn or Stanford. The leftists there will drive me crazy too, but whatever.

I might just go to Northwestern University for college, up in Evanston, or even Urbana-Champaign.

I almost ended up going to the University of Chicago, and I know someone who very well may be. I was also considering Stanford, but it was too much and too far from home for me. You'll fins leftists at every college that will drive you crazy.

And thanks. Be warned that Senior year will be fun yet stress-filled. And when they say do scholarships.... do the freakin scholarships, lol.

I can afford the entire tuition, provided I get into a good college.

I most likely won't even stress too hard over a good college though, since I will get a Masters degree either way. I can just go to an easy college, get straight As, and then get into a good university to pursue a Masters.

You are one of the lucky ones, lol.Where do you want to go?

University of Chicago for college, but the leftists there will drive me crazy. For university, most likely UPenn or Stanford. The leftists there will drive me crazy too, but whatever.

I might just go to Northwestern University for college, up in Evanston, or even Urbana-Champaign.

I almost ended up going to the University of Chicago, and I know someone who very well may be. I was also considering Stanford, but it was too much and too far from home for me. You'll fins leftists at every college that will drive you crazy.

Don't turn down UoC. It's a great school, one of the best actually. Where you go for bachelors doesn't matter, as the real degree that counts is the Masters. You can change schools pretty easily, if you were to get As in all of your classes.

Some of you may know that UofL accepted me into its Honors Program, which is a major accomplishment for me.

And today, I was called down to the school's office. I didn't know why; I thought I did something wrong. Turns out, Morehead State University sent an admissions counselor all the way to my school to come talk to me and get my ACT scores. I was surprised to hear this. So I showed him my scores and emailed them to him.

We began talking about what I wanted to do and then eventually digressed into my hobbies and interests. I showed him DDO, and he was very impressed with me and some other members. Turns out this was an admissions interview, which it seems I passed because he admitted me to MSU on the spot in the front office. He also told me that, with my scores and GPA, I will get at least an almost full-ride merit scholarship to MSU.

So, needless to say, I am happeh.

Now I know which state you live in, haha.

Congratulations by the way. I am going to apply to more universities when Senior year starts.

Don't get me wrong -- I know UoC is a good school, but the only reason I turned it down was because UofL, UK, Transy, and Morehead have some of the best engineering programs in the nation, and UoC was just too far for me.

I suggest you not to, if you're able to go to a good college for your bachelor's degree. Way too many students think they can take a 'mediocre college for bachelor's -> good college for MA' path. If you show people this is the education you've got, you'll probably be looked down on as someone of mediocre ability who wants to show off with a degree from a good university.

I'll give an example. A while ago, some alumni of the my university signed a petition condemning current students for participating in political confrontations with authorities. Some people on an online forum laughed at them when they discovered that many of the alumni did their taught masters here, rather than their bachelor's or research postgraduate degrees.

(If by master's you meant an MPhil and not an MA, please ignore what I've written...)
