LynLynLyn is at home, but about to go out.
After much work this year, I have things to report.
I applied to several colleges and was accepted to all except one (UMich—which said I would have been accepted if there was room). After a lot of visits, research done online and off, and talking to current students and such, I decided on the University of Akron. I knew I wanted to go into some sort of engineering (which they have really good programs for), and I had also stayed at the school last summer for the Women in Engineering program.
I also applied to the honors college, got an interview, and got in. Then they told me about a second interview/essay deal that was for 18 people out of the 600+ for the honors college, and that this interview was for 4 four-year-full-ride scholarships and 5 two-year-full-ride scholarships. I kinda freaked at this point.
Long story short, I got one of the four-year scholarships and I’m going to Akron to major in mechanical engineering (or so I’ve decided for now).
Will update with more info later on! I’m going to college in the middle of August!!!
