Happy Tuesday to you all! I have been meaning to write this post for several days, and I am just now getting around to it:) A few weeks ago, I think I mentioned this, I visited my friend at Purdue. It was just supposed to be a “friend trip”, but…I ended up loving the school itself…for a lot of reasons, but most importantly, it seems to have almost everything I love about all my other schools. Before I looked into Purdue, I wished that I could find a school that had every aspect I was looking for, and in came Purdue.
Things I loved:
- Equestrian team
- Renowned biological sciences department
- Variety of biology majors
- Big school (it’s Big10)
- Quaint college town
- Football (and other sports)
- Close to Indianapolis (!)
Things I didn’t love:
- Not a big city like Indi or Columbus or Chicago
I really can’t think of things that I didn’t like about Purdue…if I think of anything, I’ll add it:)
Also a bonus but not completely reasons to go here:
- My friend Megan is a student
- My friend Heather is also applying (potential roommate…!!)
- The honors dorms are brand new and feel like a hotel 😀
I applied a now I just have to wait for a decision! Not sure when they come out though.
I had an amazing visit with Heather and Megan, and now I just miss them more:)
And then I came home and had a fun visit with Aunt Emily and Phil and celebrating Noni’s birthday.
So I have applied to all the schools on my list: Purdue, Albion, BGSU, OSU, Wittenberg, Butler, Hope, UChicago. I decided to apply to UChicago because it does offer me a lot, and I liked the school when I visited. The only reason I didn’t want to apply at first was because I didn’t think I could get in with my ACT score–>which is NOT a good reason, ha ha.
In other college news, I’ve been accepted to Albion as well!!!! I couldn’t believe it when I got the letter. I actually got home from Purdue and found it in the mailbox. That is the best thing to come home to after a long, sleepy drive. Three decisions in, five more to go.
In A&P we are learning all of the muscles. We just finished all of the bones and bony landmarks/muscle and nervous tissue. Now we are onto the muscles and nerves and joints. In two weeks, we get to take a trip to the cadaver lab! My friend and I can’t wait for that.
It’s just another week of school–45 days to go!
