Ask the upcoming college freshman.

Well, I'm no longer a high school senior, and I like threads centered around me (I have an ego I admit it) so here's this. Any questions for this college bound politico?

Are you gonna do what I did - change majors 3 times and thus end up with 94 hours of everything and its dog and then get tired of it anyway and join the police force and then stay there 7 years and wish you had worked harder and got your degree?

To answer your first question...no. It's a dry campus.

Second-Christopher Newport University

Not so much a question as some advice...definitely try to do a study abroad. Since you're wanting to get into politics, it'll really strengthen your resume as well as being a flat-out great experience. One of my housemates is basically a study-abroad junkie and he can't stop raving about it.

I never did a study abroad because I was on scholarship and thought I couldn't afford it, and found out too late that

1.) Your college, particularly if it's a member of AIFS (American Institute for Foreign Studies), will have agreements with other schools, domestically and internationally for tuition reciprocity/exchange; and

2.) There are generally extra scholarships available from places like AIFS, and you can apply government aid towards study abroad costs; and

3.) Student visas are, I think, generally good for work visas for up to 20 hours a week while class is in session and 40 hours a week over holidays (that's what they are for the UK, anyway).

Don't let what you perceive to be lack of funding stop you.

Oh, and best of luck, obviously. You're a good egg, kiddo!

Thanks for that Pax. The leadership program I'm in offers a $1,000 scholarship for people studying abroad, so that helps alot.
