Incoming 1Ls / Re: Finally decided on Pitt

I'll be at Pitt too...and the open house!

My only issue is that I have committed to paying 1. mortgage (+ insurance) and 2. car payment (+ insurance).  Those two things alone "living expenses" plus tuition more than max me out for the amount of money Pitt certifies me for.  Plus, they didn't approve me for any need based aid.  Is there a way to get the school to up the certification amount?  Or, will private loans cover more than the certified amount?

Hey Laura I just saw you're a PSU grad and you're already living in Pittsburgh.  What year did you graduate?  I wonder if I saw you at the bars in State College.

Hey Burgh,
it's probable.  i graduated in 2002.  was in a sorority (pi phi).  frequented the gman, cafe, darkhorse, big easy...

EDIT: And, I'll be at the open house on the 8th as well!

Well, I withdrew from Duq.  So, hopefully they'll filter out that scholarship $$.  I'm living in Pittsburgh now, so it doesn't really matter if I sell my house or not.  Stress has left the building for the moment.

For anyone else who's decided to go to Pitt...Give me a holla!  We're going to be classmates! :D

Not gross, but really funny.  When my girlfriends and I are out for the night, and we're walking in the city, my friend will break away from the group, and she'll act like she's about to hurl just as innocent pedestrians are walking by; actually dry heaving with her hands over her mouth right at them...Freaks people out.

July 31st.  I'll need a few weeks of rest, I'm sure.  Can't freakin' wait!

I was elementary ed undergrad, and we taught kids to learn the spelling and the shape of the words...especially children with difficulties in the language arts area.  Sometimes we'd give them an "outline" (of where letters go above the middle line, and dip below the bottom line) and give them a few letters, and they would have to fill in the was cool.

sent my withdrawl (along with my refusal of $16K renewable) about a month ago.  Good luck cascagrossa!

I'm looking for a roomie (male or female...I've lived with both) too!  I have a room in my house in Carnegie.  If I don't sell it, I'm staying here (so will need a roomie for my house), and if I do sell it, I'll need a roomie for a house/apt in Shadyside/Squirrel Hill/Bloomfield/Lawerenceville..

Will all of you be at the open house?

No Bush for me either!

(see my posts under the school-specific boards for Pitt & Duquesne for a detailed description of my house)
