Hi,

I thought it would be interesting to see either where everyone wants to go to college...or where they went.

I am a junior in HS, so right now I am considering Furman University, Duke, Wake Forest, and UGA.

Hi,

I went to the University of Warwick, West Midlands, England to study Chemistry full time. Then had a year off from education and went back as a part time mature student  to the University of Centrl England (UCE), Birmingham, England to study Law. After that I studied for a Masters in Criminal Justice by distance learning with the University of Portsmouth, Hampshire, England.
In January 2007 I am due to start a masters in Town and Country Planning, again by distance learning with the University of Bristol, Avon, England.
Ultimately I'd like to return to UCE to obtain a doctorate in commercial law - but it's a long way off yet!

Mandy,

Try not to go Too Wild your first semester, I really hated going to the Dean and pleading to not be kicked out... 
Plus the first 2 semesters I took too many hours, got lousy grades which pulled my GPA down forever. 

My Jr and Sr years I was on the Dean's List and yet my overall GPA was 2.8    :o

Have fun but not too much fun, you are there to soak up knowlege and not alcohol  ;D, well not too much.

Hey, how is the season wraping up?

My Freshman year I went to Central Michigan University and HATED it.

I transfered to Western Michigan University and loved it!

I got my BA 18 months ago from Western Michigan.

I am currently figuring out my next step.  This is what I am considering:
1.) Get a teaching job next fall and begin working on my Masters in English Education (most logical choice, but I am not sure its really what I want to do)
2.) Get my masters in counceling (one of my dreams has always been to work with bereaved siblings.)
3.) Go to law school (I have never considered this until recently when all of my family and friends have been telling me I would make a good lawyer.)

So, I have a choice to make.  I definately want to get my knees taken care of before I do anything.

But i am happy now i decided to take geology. I am also thankful i got state paid studies.

I started at the University of North Dakota.  Loved it 100%, then the floods came.  I didn't go back.  I then went to Northwest University in Missouri, but got sick for two weeks and in the hospital.  I couldn't really get make strength back, so I ended up at Lincoln University.  Didn't like it one bit (except for some of my degree classes...the undergraduate stuff was awful).  I'm now getting my Masters through an accelerated program sponsored by William Woods.  I suppose I'm on the 10 year college program because I've been in some sort of college since Aug. 1996.

I studied Geography and Geology at the University of Bristol in the UK in the early 1970s having turned down a place at Cambridge to read Natural Sciences because I would not have been able to live in college! Got my BA (just due to too much fun!) I then trained as a teacher for Physical Education with Adventure Sports as my special area (Sailing, Canoeing, Skiing, Climbing etc). Then taught for 20 years or so

Left teaching in 1993 and returned to study at the University of the West of England, also in Bristol. Studied for a BA in Modern Languages and Computer Science. I also did a Teaching degree for TEFL. Then up sticks and came to Germany where I ended up back in teaching!

If I may give you an idea... the UT Knoxville is home to an amazing forensic anthropologist named Bill Bass.  He's pretty much my hero.  Even if you're not interested in the field, try to take one of his classes.  I think he still teaches a few classes, but he's getting up there in age (though he hardly shows it in his determination) and he goes a LOT of lectures and seminars all over the country.
