So, we need one of these topics. Which university are you in/which universities are you applying to/what sort of university would you want to apply to later/what are you majoring/thinking about majoring in?

I'm looking at Yale, Duke, SMU, Rice, Dartmouth, Cornell, Vanderbilt, Brown, and if I decide to take a third SAT II test, I'll throw my hat in the ring for Harvard, Princeton, and Columbia.

I'm going to major in Economics.

You're looking at expensive colleges. Really expensive ones. Like, "Become a lawyer or doctor because otherwise the debt will drown you unless you're hyper-rich" colleges.

I'm at the University of Wisconsin at Eau Claire. It's awesome. And it's a lot cheaper than those places for a high quality education and plenty of undergraduate research opportunity.

University of Wyoming, here. It's very nice, because it's cheaper to come here from out of state than it would have been for me to go to most of my in-state colleges. Not to mention that out of all the in-state places, UVA is the only one that had my major (Astronomy) and I probably couldn't have gotten in. That said, even though it's cheap, Wyoming is still really nice.

Long way to go, though, VA to WY.

And, because my dad makes 40,000 a year, which is roughly $80,000, I get a hell of a lot of financial aid. They have this new thing called "need-based aid" (I'm not being condescending, it's new enough) that means that I get a mixture of grants and loans until the cost is about $5,000 a year for my parents. However, all of the universities I listed are adopted a loan-free policy, which means that when I graduate I'll have under $20,000 in debt, easily. At some of those schools I think the transition to loan-free aid is pretty much complete. Add to that an itty-bitty scholarship and I'll probably be graduating completely debt-free.

Dayum, you've got it all worked out. O.o

@ Grim: Yeah, a bit. That's also part of why I picked it, though.

I know. ^_^ Being poor white trash has its benefits.

@Fluff: Good thing for that kind of stuff. Although I'm not sure what the poverty line here in Ami-land is.

@Squee: Yeah. I'm probably going to go to Northern California, Washington, or Minnesota for Grad School, though, so I may be going about as far as you went.

Northwestern U, Oberlin, Indiana U, William and Mary (because my entire family has gone to William and Mary), UVA, and Princeton. I live in Northern Virginia, so, yeah. William & Mary and UVA are the obvious ones.

I'm majoring in one or two of the following:

Musicology, East Asian Studies, Journalism.

Although I'm really probably going to do the last two.
