In the end I was accepted to 9 out of 10 colleges that I applied to. The exception was SUNY New Paltz I have heard in the positive from all the others and most have sent financial information. In the end it was not much of a race though as The College of Saint Rose is where I will be going next year. I believe it has the best value for the money that I want to spend and a great Psychology program to learn and grow in. So unlike the LA LA land and Moonlight announcement this one is all Saint Rose.
I was excited to receive my fifth and sixth college acceptance letters from Utica College and the State University of New York at Plattsburgh. Looking forward to having some great choices and a difficult decision to make.
Today I visited Siena College for an accepted student day. I attended this by myself, since mom and dad had to work. There was a light breakfast and some remarks from admissions people and a student panel. I went on yet another tour, and the tour guide Jay was really great. I met a girl from Syracuse named Rachel on the tour and we had a good time getting to know each other. I went to a psychology class Sensation and Perception and I really had no idea what they were studying (I think it was a higher level class). There was a lunch with mac and cheese and chicken nuggets and other good food.
I enjoyed the tour with the guide – she talked about her experiences at college and answered a lot of questions. Siena is a great school, but not the right place for me.
