Q & A - Ask!

I got my history test back today.
I got a 94.
Out of 500!

I got an AAAA. I got an AAAAAAAA.
Sorry, I'm just freaking excited.
It's like when a stripper finally gets her degree and can stop riding the pole for tips.
It's an exciting day.

But that doesn't matter right now.
What does matter is colleges.
Apparently I have to start applying to Universities soon.
That's what my mom says at least.

So, since I have such a diverse group of readers, I'm going to ask you all:
Which colleges do you think I should apply to?
I wanted to apply to Brown. Until I realized it's Ivy League. I can't afford that.
I was like "Brown!" And my mom went "But that's in Arkansas!"
She was thinking of John Brown University, a Baptist university.

Think of any University that you think would fit an English major.
And a University that would actually accept me.
I have to retake my SAT because I got a lower score on it. (I'd never formally had highschool math, and that's what I bombed).
Luckily I got my ace in the hole with my whole "I was 15 in college" shtick. Lucky me. I'm privileged.

So if you guys could help, it would be so appreciated. I've never ventured into the world of colleges, so I have no idea what to look for.
(Community college doesn't count, that was easy. Like a cheap hooker.)

Now, to the title of this post.
I've decided that while you know about mundane details of my life (Wow, she ate turkey yesterday!), you guys don't really know the core things about me.
So, today I ask you to leave a question, or two, or fifty that you'd like me to answer.
You can ask me ANYTHING that you'd like to know! I am an open book.
(I'm like Moby Dick, without being boring.)
Tomorrow, once I get home from visiting with my niece and her girlfriend (Yes, my niece is a lesbian, and we love her to death), I'll answer the questions here.
So ask away, and have fun with it!Now ASK QUESTIONS.

Is there anything you miss about high school?

I wish I could help you with the University questions. I just went to the university that was in my parents' hometown, because I was too lazy to apply for anything else.

Where were you born? And if you could choose anywhere in the world to live, where would it be? And why?

As far as colleges go I have a friend who wants to be an English major and she applied to Vanderbilt. I don't really know much about Vanderbilt though, other than it's a good school. The same friend also applied to the College of New Jersey (TCNJ) and got rejected. TCNJ's public, but I don't know what out of state tuition is like...Check out Haverford College and Juniata College. I would recommend investing in The Princeton Review's Complete Book of Colleges (the most recent addition) or borrowing it from a local library. I don't know if you've ever seen one, but the book lists approximately 1,821 colleges and for most gives location, tuition, a breakdown of average scores (like SAT scores of current students), a selectivity rating, percentages for the most common majors, freshmen retention rate, and the type of extracurriculars and facilities available.

Oh, and don't give up on the Ivies yet! You never know, you might get aid! Though someone my dad works with says that declaring on your apps that you need aid hurts you because of the economy and so does being honest about how much you're willing to pay per year...

I have a boring question: what's your favorite musical? :-P

I went to the University of Central Florida and then I went to Jacksonville State University (in AL and I hated it). I'm not sure which universities are best for English majors... I'd suggest whichever gives you a bigger scholarship. :P


You said you have a niece, how many brothers and/or sisters do you have? How many nieces/nephews?

Favorite movie?

Favorite book?

Favorite video game?

If you could do anything for one whole day (if money is of no object) what would you do?

Which celebrity do you think you look like most?

What is your favorite outfit?

Favorite memory?

Best thing to give?

How long have you been blogging?

Good job on your test! Love your stripper analogy! Lol!

Hmmm....I don't know about Universities, but don't rule out Brown because you could get a scholarship you smarty-pants! Apply to as many as you can afford to keep your options open.

What's your favorite color?

What's your dream career after college?

Where do you see yourself in 10 years?

If you could be any animal, what would you be?

If you could have any superpower, what would it be?

Girl, you asked the wrong person to ask you questions.

Are you a virgin?

Sorry, just had to ask! You don't have to answer that.

Do you wish you were still in Highschool with kids your age?

Are you a partier or would you rather stay home with friends?

If you could change one thing about yourself, what would it be?

What is your favorite thing about yourself?

Do you work while going to school?

How IS your niece older than you?

You talk about your mom, but not much about your dad, is there conflict there? I mean the people you consider mom and dad.

Are you glad you skipped high school or do you miss having that experience?

Who are your favorite authors?

What other religions, besides your own, interest you?

What is your relationship like with your sibling(s)?

As for colleges, UCONN is a good one, their b-ball girls team rocks! You must like warm weather, so what about Florida or CA or Hawaii? Boston U is really good I hear too.

Bobby G said...

DAMNIT! Grand Pooba took mine, I was also wondering if you were a should go to the University of Michigan!

Sarah said...

I'm going to be a dud and say Community College for the first 2 years (for general requirements that will transfer). I went to Eastern Michigan U, which is not that expensive and I will be paying out of my ass for MANY years to come. Try to avoid as many loans as you can, I wish I had, the stress of owing money is horrible. plus, with community college I didn't have to take SAT or ACT's, which was great because I really would have bombed I'm sure.

Me said...

I am horrible at these Q&A's. I NEVER have a good question to ask. So..I am going to borrow one that someone asked me on my blog. "What's something you fear?" (we all fear losing a loved one, or losing our job..etc. etc.)What really makes you catch your breath with fear?

ALP said...

So, I'm wondering what made you think John Brown University is a Baptist univeristy?

It's not. JBU is an interdenominational Christian university. Always has been. So there are students there from all different Christian denominations (even a few students that aren't even Christian), but the school is very Christ-centered.

Just had set the record straight. =)

I have a few awards for you to pick up over at my Blog. :)

Sho said...

Stumbled on your blog (mostly through Carmen). Here's $0.02:

It's a common misconception that the Ivies are instantly unaffordable. A lot of them have VERY deep pockets, from which they are able to offer some pretty substantial aid (take it from me, I get quite a lot of aid from U of Penn, where I'm currently a junior). The Ivies also practice something called "need-blind" admissions, meaning they do not consider your need for aid a factor in your application.

So I say, if you want to apply to Brown, go for it! Unless your family is sitting on a ton of savings, you probably have a decent chance of aid if you get in.

Question: what college did you go to at age 15?

Tim said...

WOW sucks that I missed this one. I could have had some good questions for ya!

Love and Prayers,
