Where do you all go to college?

For seniors like myself, where all you thinking about applying?

My top two are University of Scranton for the DPT program and university of Richmond.

VB campus. I probably won't be going until the second 8 weeks of this semester. Don't have any money right now for tuition, so I'll do the 8 week classes.

Chris I might try for W & M, but as of now no. My gpa is there but sat scores arent and just havent really looked at it.
For those wondering average gpa from my highschool that gets in is a 3.9 and sat score is 1400 haha.
My schools gpa screws us up though. For example, an 88% is a B and = a 3.0.

I'm looking into NC State, Virginia Tech, Georgia Tech, and Michigan Tech. Maybe even UNC Charlotte.

My GPA is terrible.. I have like a 2.8 average, but my SAT is 1700. I want to take it at least two more times (I've only taken it once), as well as take the SATII in Physics and maybe take the ACT if it helps me at all. I am losing time, so I will probably have to quit paintball and all other extracurriculars for a semester to low time consumption and put these things in front.

Is that new or old SAT... if that's old SAT I feel really dumb with my 1290(1860 new)
My school uses some goofy 4.3 GPA scale that's meant to make a 4.0=4.0 public school wise, but it just makes things confusing for students.

IDK, I'm really appreciating my school now that I see other people from other schools cramming **** in their senior year. I have already taken the SAT twice, the ACT + writing once. I have 3 college recommendations from teachers as of June last year, two of whom are Doctors (IDK if that looks better or not). I've submitted massive amounts of information to my guidance councilor so he can write a letter of recommendation which is fitting. I've visited 5 colleges, submitted two applications. And now I'm taking some good courses and I'll have plenty of time for my paintball club along with the occasional problem solving for theater crew, followed up by my heavy videogame addiction, plus I'll still have time for other junk.

My senior year basically consisted of my freshman year of college. I took like one English class for my senior year and the rest were college classes. It paid off though, I'll have my associates degree at the end of this year (hopefully).

I wasn't originally going to do PT, I went into Le Moyne Undeclared...but now that I know what I want to do and enjoy the school, I'm just going to stay put. Definitely do the interning though, because that way you will find out if you really like PT or not. It would be pointless to bust your butt in school and then not like your job. A buddy of mine who was going to do PT was gonna go to Daemen up in the Buffalo area. He did some shadowing, realized this wasn't the major for him and is now going to the local community college, then to the troopers academy for criminal justice. Good luck bro

I scored a 1350 on the old SAT back in like 7th grade. I never took it in high school. :( I could be at a university if I had just taken the SAT in high school.

I did a full day of shadowing today and it was intense. I like it alot though because just seeing the improvement these people get is really rewarding and not only that, but evrybody says they love their job. See my one thread for more info haha.

Are you a fresh in college?
