In six months time (maybe two if things work well) I'll know where I'm going to spend the next four years of my life. I'm starting the application process which is kind of cool and kind of dull at the same time. It's beginning to feel "real" now. I've taken the SAT (twice actually) and have the SAT IIs next Saturday. On the 13th I'm flying to visit a few schools and will decide where I'm going to apply ED. Hopefully the visit pays off and am able to get my questions answered. What places am I interested in? Well, I leave the school's nickname and let you figure it out! Cool

Tigers
Catamounts
Violets
Raiders
Bruins
Big Green

Where you been?!

College choices, ah yes, I remember the fun...

Auburn?
Western Carolina
NYU
Wright State, Texas Tech?
UCLA, George Fox, Belmont, Bethany?
Dartmouth

I see a definite East Coast preference...

You're 2 for 6 (Dartmouth and NYU). The other ones aren't even close. All of the schools are in the east.

Welcome back, Will!! How's the body doing?? I take it you are not running in THE race in Portland today?? As for the college picks, I'm going with the Tigers as being LSU. I'll bet Micah comes up with all of them!! Very Happy Thumbs Up

Doing pretty well Paul. No, no Portland Marathon for me. Hopefully in the future my body can learn to adapt to higher mileage.

Nope, Tigers is not LSU.

Tigers--- Clemson, Princeton ?? I'll opt for Princeton since you seem to be leaning Ivy League.

Great job Paul! You got 'em all. I thought I was going to be able to stump you with Colgate. Only 'Bruins' is left Micah, which shouldn't be too hard after seeing the direction I'm leaning.

Bruins is going to be tough. I assume we're not talking Nashville, here, so Dan's choice of Belmont was already ruled out.

Bruins ---
Bellevue University (Bellevue, Nebraska)
Belmont University (Nashville, Tennessee)
Bethany College (Scotts Valley, California)
George Fox College (Newburg, Oregon)
University of California-Los Angeles (Los Angeles, California)

This is all I could come up with for Bruins.

The only other Bruins I can come up with are a couple schools in Canada, but that doesn't seem to fit the trend. Confused
