If you don't feel like prepping, you can always pick up a copy of the October SAT verification master -- if you can successfully disguise yourself as an ETS official and get past Level 5. By the way, one of our offices is in Princeton, New Jersey. Have fun trying to find it!

ETSRep, ETS couldn't do much if Federal Marshals ordered the search and seizure of those verification masters for issues of "National Security."

In fact, I'll go type up the warrant now..

So school is just like a year round continuation for all of you? Oh well, I did some nerd/academic things myself but i'm not confining my summer to that, here's what I did/am doing
1 - Teach self calculus(already finished, took 9 days and a book my ap physics/ap cal teacher gave me)
2 - Getting new surf board and spending time at the beach with my brother
3 - Get better at skim boarding, haven't done it since december so I kind of suck
4 - My friends and I are getting a hotel in Key West, will spend a week or two down there with my new seadoo.
5 - Road trip at end of summer.

That's awesome you guys, I'm doing a bacterialphages research with some scientist in the Ever Green State College in WA. And 3 week vacation in CA, and preping.

By Chatterjoy87 (Chatterjoy87) on Saturday, June 19, 2004 - 12:04 am: Edit

Yeah Dostoyevsky! :-P

Grad parties/random parties, picnics

Read Dream of the Red Room and other books I've been meaning to get to



Research and maybe start Extended Essay

Watch plenty of TV, chat and stay on the internet far too long

Spend time with family

Stop in on Freshman Orientation

Nothing really college-oriented I guess, sigh, but I don't have that much money to spend on those summer programs. Besides, summer is six weeks long and there needs to be a recovery period from academics...

By Benzinspeicher (Benzinspeicher) on Saturday, June 19, 2004 - 09:50 pm: Edit

Run a whole lot.
Go to the beach at certain times.
Go to heavy metal concerts.
Freshman orientation.
Wilderness Week before college starts at RPI.
Go to my cousin's wedding and get totally drunk at the party.
Pity the kids who haven't graduated and still have double sessions for football coming up.
Grow out my hair.
Play regular Nintendo.
Watch baseball, Simpsons, and Indian movies.

i have an insane list of goals to do. Highlighted among them are:

make myself literate in Farsi

beat the 22 books I read last summer
draw/paint because I never have time during the year
teach myself calculus (that's it renegade! which book did you use?I'm planning on Calculus Made Easy by Thompson+Gardner)
finish "classical music for dummies"

and a whole sleu of others. Should be an amazing summer.

most important thing this summer for me is to relax and have fun, that's my way of prepping for next year. playing tennis practically everyday, plenty of time to read good books, hang out with friends, visit family, and then some college visits and working on essays and some stuff like that. oh yea, and working to save up money for a trip to Europe after I graduate next year =D

By Tenbelow (Tenbelow) on Thursday, June 24, 2004 - 03:34 pm: Edit

I got into the Brown and WUStL summer programs. Brown gave me no financial aid and WUStL gave me $800. Oh well. My summer research from last year also fell through. This year I'm hopefully going to intern at a hospital, but we'll see... I'm not getting my hopes up at all.

Otherwise, big time college touring. AP Physics work and AP Lit reading and essays. Amusement parks with friends. Movies and other random events with friends. Giving tours of the school for NHS. Spending unreasonable amounts of time online. Getting some sun. Senior pictures. Putting together a better site for my school's Science Olympiad team.

gov school, SAT prep, college applications.
Summer reading.

A lot of stuff if u ask me, considering gov school is 5 weeks long and requires more work than an avg college student. SAt prep takes a while. College apps are confusing and tedious, and for summer reading I have to read like 1500 pages worth of stuff and write about it. One of my books is the dreaded Anna Karenina...
