Psh...Collegiates and their e-mail...

So, I got online tonight and had 11 emails. That's right.


Some were junk mail, most were colleges. I got some interesting stuff.

So here's what I think right now.

I asked for information at-

  • Cincinatti
  • Marymount
  • Johns Hopkins
  • Gallaudet
  • University of the District of Columbia
  • Howard (My target school)
  • MedCentral
  • Youngstown

Here's what happened today

Marymount e-mailed me. I have promptly crossed them off of my list. The admissions people

i had a wretched experience with u.c. when trying to do the college thing again a few years ago. i was constantly chasing people and couldn't hardly get a soul to answer my questions. the thousands of students that attend there prove that apparently some questions do get answered, but i felt that if i had to chase them now, i'd have to chase them for however many years i attended, and that made me grumpy. good luck with them (or whatever college you choose!)
