Plz post any information that can help me to set attainable goals.

Infinity dahling, I would put Wash U as a reach, but I would put Purdue as a match/safety.

Why Missouri-Rolla? I would shoot for Missouri-Columbia, it's a better campus and more highly thought of. It would still be a safety for you.
Ta ta for now, Cruella

By Infinity (Infinity) on Saturday, January 10, 2004 - 08:02 pm: Edit

thank a lot...dahling, I am not sure about the competetiveness of some of these schools, so I'll be sure to reasearch more about WashU

By Mafmaf22 (Mafmaf22) on Saturday, January 10, 2004 - 08:04 pm: Edit

yeah Washu is pretty damn competitive now.

Caliplaya i think you both have a good chance, you've got a good GPA, scores, ECs, and your a URM, which never hurts. So good luck

By Infinity (Infinity) on Saturday, January 10, 2004 - 08:05 pm: Edit

Oh I was also wondering if Missouri-Columbia is more highly thought of for engineering because that is my intended major.

By Cruella (Cruella) on Saturday, January 10, 2004 - 08:10 pm: Edit

Dahling, you had better get those apps out ASAP! Especially to U of Michigan. It's hard enough to get in there, but even harder in engineering. You are late for that one!

Stop playing with your puppy, send it to me, I promise to take good care of it -it is a cold winter after all and a girl has to be fashionable and warm. I do so adore puppies.

Missouri-Columbia has engineeering.

Go take a look at Wash U...they are highly competative, you have to apply NOW!

Get to work!
Ta ta for now, Cruella

Cruella I am a junior! I hope u think i am a senior. What is that bit about the puppy in the middle about lol? Do you work at a kennel?

By Cruella (Cruella) on Saturday, January 10, 2004 - 08:25 pm: Edit

Dahling, I did not know you are a junior, you can go back to playing then!

As for the puppy, I figured since I was helping you, you could help me. I do so love spotted puppies. They make mahvelous coats. ;) Perhaps you haven't heard of me? Impossible! I just wanted to see if you had a spare puppy running around your house. We fashion mavens like to look as lovey as possible.

Ta ta for now, Cruella

By Infinity (Infinity) on Saturday, January 10, 2004 - 08:28 pm: Edit

lol I should have made that connection cruella!Of course I have heard of you ;) thanks again

Um you kinda stole my post infinity so...... uh if you could find your own that would be nice now can people look at what I wrote thanks.

By Cruella (Cruella) on Saturday, January 10, 2004 - 09:18 pm: Edit

I am sorry Caliplaya dahling, I should have answered you first. You will most likely get in Columbia. Your URM status helps, but I think you can in get in regardless of your ethnic backround.

You have very good stats. Good luck in your applications!

Ta ta for now, Cruella

By Caliplaya03 (Caliplaya03) on Saturday, January 10, 2004 - 09:20 pm: Edit

LOL it's ok Cruella..... thanks for the encouragement i appreciate it. What schools did you apply to and what are your stats?

By Cruella (Cruella) on Saturday, January 10, 2004 - 09:38 pm: Edit

Dahling, I am a mom. My son has applied to several schools. U of Michigan and Miami of Ohio haven't responded yet. I hope they send something soon.

He's been accepted at Michigan State (a total safety and he won't go, but it was a fall back in case he was totally desperate), Loyola in Chicago, Purdue and U of Missouri-Columbia. He just got a letter on Thursday and was accepted into the Journalism school at Missouri. I was disappointed when he got his inital acceptance letter from Missouri because it was only to the university. It was pretty cool to get that letter from the J school a few days ago. That changed his plans a lot.

He's going to have a tough decision if Mich accepts him. It'll be between U of Mich and Missouri.

Personally I would like for him to go to Michigan so we can go to a few games, but it'll be his decision.

He's been heavily recruited by Grinnell, Wash U and HYP. It's tempting to apply but he knows he wants Mich or Missouri.

All you kids will have some hard decisions to make. I wish you all the best of luck.

Ta ta for now, Cruella

Infinity, this is the 3rd or 4th thread that you have hijacked. Start your own thread instead of hijacking others' threads. Just a friendly reminder.
