so i got into St Lawrence, in new york, and CU boulder, in boulder. i want to go to CU and my parents want me to go to SLU. i went to a really good private high school in CT and got decent grades all the way through, but never as good as i could have gotten because i tend to slack off. i want to go out to CU because it seems to offer everything i want in a school: cool town, cool people, cool stuff to do around, and not a shitty education. however, colorado is really far away from CT, and it is really big (my school has 650 people), so my parents are liking the more collegiate, collegey atmosphere of SLU for me. they do not want to pay for me to go 2000 miles away and party my brains out and drop out after one semester, which i totally understand. im not a big partier or anything, and im really good at taking care of myself, but they still seem to want to hold me back. and i dont want to stay back because i am really looking to get away from what im used to and try something new.
how do i convince them to let me go? +k for good answers. +k for really funny answers... but seriously.
