    Another great moment in higher education.

    Mine, that is!

    Today I got the coveted "thick envelope," a FedEx Saturday delivery letting me know I had been accepted to Columbia University, and I expect to begin classes next month.

        I'm so far on track to double-major in poli-sci and computer science, both of which I really enjoy.

          Just doing the paperwork that was required of me today made me wish I had one of those little MRE accessory packs, so I could shotgun some coffee without having to dilute it.

                      Congrats, man! College is fun....or can be if you want it to be...or it can suck b/c you spent all your free time studying instead of hanging out with friends, doing things you know your body would hate you for later (like going to a concert while sick simply b/c you really wanted to see a certain band live) but that you'd never regret, etc.

                        I would posit that you were still correct ;)

                        Thanks to all for the congrats! If they were worth a thousand dollars each I would...still not have enough for tuition this coming semester. But it would pay ...rent? Maybe? What have I done?

                            HAHAHA! How greatly you overestimate the generosity of the federal government. I'm 25 (which qualifies me for the maximum amount of loan money) and i get 2025 per semester in grants and 6200 per year in combined subsidized and unsubsidized loans. So call it an even 5k per semester, 2k of which never has to be paid back cause its grants. But hes going to Columbia, 5k in tuition is probably about close to 1/4 to 1/6 of what he'll be paying per semester.
                            Student loans...lol!

                            Sorry to make you feel worse about the money switch, wasnt my intent. You could always be a new york cabbie for cash!

                              Student loans vary based on a bunch of things, not just age (I'm not even sure age has anything to do with it except whether you count as dependent or not for tax purposes). Unless Switch has a lot of income, he'll be able to get much more than $5k for a loan since Columbia's tuition and the cost of living in NYC is pretty high. For instance, I'm 25 and I can get $15,000 per semester in student loans. That's because tuition here is similar to Columbia's.
