peefan, go to VT!
You are completely right, Mia. That is unless you are a terrible student like me. If you don't get into a good college you don't get any of those things.

actually, Screwtape, this isn't really true. i can say that b/c i used to work in the field most colleges care about their students and therefore have all sorts of resources and activities available to support personal development.

Led Zeppelin I Running Diary

I've already heard about half of this album going into it, but I still enjoy these tracks. Good Times, Bad Times is good. Babe I'm Gonna Leave You is great.

this is soooooooo true. having taken classes on campus and online, i can totally attest to that. it's a bummer that i don't have those experiences anymore, but oh well. i mean technically i can still participate in these things, i am still a student of my college, but it's hard with work and other stuff.

it is tough trying to manage work, life, etc. with college. but hang in there, you know? perhaps later down the road as you get further and further into your studies you can eventually merge the two. like, perhaps you'll find a job more related to the field you are studying or what you want to do. when you actually get to put theory into practice is when all those hours studying, all the agonizing tests, etc. finally seem worth it.

well, if the school isn't a good match for you, it's simply not a good match. you can't help that. perhaps you might be able to transfer or something?

i have my own opinions on large universities vs. small colleges. i wouldn't trade my VT experience for the world. but, all throughout undergrad, i did feel like just a number. i was still able to build my own community though, which helped a lot. but yeah, big school means you're really lost in a sea of people.

If my calculations are correct, I've been contacted by 27 states, Washington DC, and Italy. And this is only 35% done.
