ONE LAST THING...I PROMISE
I have worked as a telemarketer, political pollster, bank teller, and pharmacy tech at different times during my last two years of high school until I began to actively campaign on the local level for Howard Dean for President

Although I don't know much about what your chances are at transferring to an Ivy, I would like to know what life is like at Vassar. Is there a reason why you don't like it?

I can't complain about Vassar- it is an AMAZING school. However, I grew up in Poughkeepsie and convinced myself that going to college here would be no problem. However, I was wrong. Vassar offers tremendous opportunities, a very interesting yet challenging array of courses, intelectually curious (and capable students), as well as captivating professors. There is more than enought to do, plenty of room to intellectually develop, a myriad of extracurricullar opportunities, and enough name recognition ot guarantee post-Vassar success. However, it was simply a poor match considering my move (from home to campus) was only 5 miles. I would like to leave; however, coming to Vassar was not a mistake- I was decision that if I had lived anywhere else would definitely and unequvocably make again.
