wanted to go to UBC but ended up going to UW madison. madison is ranked higher for my program. i think it's also ahead in world rankings. the only reason i want ubc is because whistler is so close. oh well. also a couple days ago i just realized that i got in to the highest ranked college out of every one in my graduating class. haha dumbass close minded fucks

Dream college was CU Boulder, that's where I went.
If I could do it over again, I'd probably have stayed somewhere closer to home (i'm from NJ). I would have greatly preferred to be within driving distance from home. But overall it was a very good experience.
"I'd really like to get my name out so I can piss on 13 year old girls and get away with it, do a shit load of heroin, autograph boobs without it being harassment and then finally blow my brains out when the fame gets to me."
"i was going to post something demeaning and funny about the op, but then i saw that TechnoPotamus did so now i find it unnecessary."

Dream College: Lehigh University
Where I'm at: Washington State University
I would totally do it all over again. I could have gotten into Lehigh for sure. My mom would have had one hell of a fit over me attending a private school, though. WSU has been tons of fun, I've met tons of great people, and I've done really well so far.
A theologian may indulge the pleasing task of describing Religion as she descended from Heaven, arrayed in her native purity. A more melancholy duty is imposed on the historian. He must discover the inevitable mixture of error and corruption which she contracted in a long residence upon earth, among a weak and degenerate race of beings. - Edward Gibbon
“It’s the best thing I’ve found to do with my time. It’s what makes me the happiest—traveling around with your buddies chasing snow, getting to see new places. I can’t imagine a better lifestyle. Even if you’re broke at the end of the day, who cares? Look at where you are.” - Adam Delorme
Dream School: University of Denver
Actual: University of Minnesota - Twin Cities
I got into a highly competitive program at Minnesota and with scholarships I'm paying next to nothing in tuition compared to what I'd be paying at DU. As much as the skiing and everything sucks in MN, Minneapolis is rad overall and it's 100% a smarter choice for me to go to school here
I never really had a "dream" school. Obviously, every kid wants to go to Harvard, Yale, etc when they're growing up, but I decided to be realistic and I also wanted to stay local, so I only applied to two schools: Michigan State and the University of Michigan. Got into both, but liked State's campus better and my girlfriend (now fiancee...fucking weird to say that) and most of my good high school friends were going there, sooo that's where I went! I roomed blind my freshman year and ended up meeting two of my best friends and having a great time. If I could do it all over again I wouldn't change a thing.
MIT is one of the hardest schools to get into. MIT is where the genius science and math kids go, not just the workhard booksmart kids.
Tbh I don't believe he would get in if he got denied from the other schools, and when I say that I don't mean to take anything away from those that denied him.
I mean yeah, I did study kinda hard, but never really focused that much on grades. I just took like literally every class (academic and art) my school has and did well on my sat's. I didn't do any pf that phony bullshit extracurricular "save the world" stuff either. I think I got in as one of the like several spots for atypical, not study hard, not super-genius students who just like to do and try everything and anything. The admissions people there are really smart and super meticulous, and it's not like they "let you in," it's more like they pick you, so in that sense there's not a lot you can do to get in other than just do your own thing.
