Well I know there's some other seniors in high school here and I was just checking in to see if anyone's been accepted anywhere, or where you've applied.

I just got my first response today, and found out that I got accepted to the University of Maryland! :-D

It's my second choice at the moment, behind American University, but I definitely haven't decided on it yet. So anyone else hear anything? Any juniors know where they're going to apply?

College Park! Congratz! A very fine university indeed I remember checking them out when I was originally looking for colleges. They have a good Comp Science/IT/Math programs (my areas of interest) I know a couple people who have gone/currently go there. I personally stayed in Virginia- at George Mason. Wasn't my top selection but I'm able to commute from home. (and save thousands...) They have some great professors and I'm definitely enjoying my experience.

Choosing which college to go to can be a really tough decision to make but just know whatever you decide will most likely work out. Can't really go wrong actually there's pros and cons to pretty much any college. Just find a school that offers decent programs in what you're interested in and take it from there. Best of luck to you, Freshman year of college can be a whirl! :-)

Gratz on MD ;-D

Where do you live? Because I live about an hour away from college park and about 20 mins away from the AU campus.

I'm a junior right now, but my top 3 as of now are probably USC, Michigan, and Wisconsin (most likely in that order, although Michigan and USC are really close).

Congrats man, UMD is a great school. I'm a junior and I live pretty close to AFF, so everyone at our high school uses it as a safety, but it's a competitive school out of state from what I've heard. I probably won't go to Maryland or American b/c they're too close to home (I could bike from my house to American pretty easily :-B ).

My top choices right now without visits are Missouri, Syracuse, and Northwestern for their journalism programs, but I haven't visited any schools yet, so that could and likely will change.

Congratulations on your acceptance to U of M. Even if you don't end up attending that particular school, it's still worthy of gratz.

Just use your head once you get to whatever school you end up attending. Don't make the same stupid mistakes I did. :-o

You're about to enter a very important and very exciting (and very fun!!) stage of your life. Enjoy!

Congratulations teddy. I think it'd be helpful to speak to some current students as well as alumns if you haven't already. Biggest decision of your life so far so use every resource you have. Congrats on the acceptance to UM. ;-D

I live in Massachusetts but I really liked the Baltimore and DC areas when I visited them and there's a ton of opportunities there for the stuff I'm interested in. I also looked at USC but wound up not applying there. I'm not really sure why. I guess I decided I liked the DC area better and only applied to 3 schools because I thought it was stupid to pay the $50 fee to places I wouldn't go. Some people I know applied to like 11 schools which would cost over $500.

I have a friend who wants to get into either journalism or advertising and his first choice is Syracuse. I haven't talked to him much about it, but besides being in upstate New York, he really liked it.

I am just not a fan of it. I had fun there for the big Halloween, but from what I saw nothing that impressive. I have a good amount of friends there, and it just doesn't seem like there is a whole lot to do in Madtown....But, hey I am not a fan of Wisconsin, so that could be it too.
