I hear you!!! I am stoked about quitting. The only reason I stayed at my job is unlimited copier/printer usage and I can pretty much play on the net all day. Ever since the one dude I liked left for the Air Force, it has really gone downhill.
He gave the best resignation letter I have ever seen.....I think he got it from somewhere....but anyways, it was all about how he regretted he had to leave, but he was moving on to be a pirate. He had a ship all picked out and listed the type of loot he was after. He also explained that he was taking applications for first mate. Got to give the boss points for having a sense of humor. It was great.

Nothing to yank on.....lol
I am sure there is some kind of insecurity issues having to do with a massive change of that sort rocking the boat in the marriage thing.
Guys don't make big changes like that very easily. If I cut my hair or dyed it drastically, it probably means I wanted to reinvent my image. From personal experience, when my ex-wife was making big changes like that, it ended up being for her boyfriend. Sucker me didn't say anything till much later when I caught on.

But that scholarship, along with GI Bill will almost eliminate all my tuition. Spokane is a nice area, and I'd prefer it in a heartbeat over humid-Flordia(I grew up in Atlanta).
Do you still get your GI Bill in grad school?? I thought there was a finite amount in each account?

I visited there for their open house. If you want quiet and rural, Carlisle is a good place to be. There are a lot of affordable housing options there. I have a family, so it is an ideal place for me, plus I only live about 30 minutes from there now. Their staff was awesome. Very sharp. During the luncheon, the faculty came and sat with all of us. They were extremely friendly and seemed like that approachability would extend into the classroom.
I am not really into the big college scene. That is why I went to a different Penn State campus for my undergrad. So for me, if I go there, I would stay in Carlisle.
As far as the waitlist. Well, as soon as I get some financial aid information from some other schools, I will be able to clear a spot for you if I get accepted with no $$ from them.

You could try looking for others in your situation and shacking as roommates in a cheap apartment. I have been living in a mobile home for the last 3 years because it was cheap. I would also second the camper idea. My parents bought a used one for $2,000 for traveling. Not the best, but it is definately better than the back of a pickup. If you did that, I am sure there are camper parks that would work some sort of long term deal for sewage and water hookups. I definately give you points for dedication though.
Is it considered vagracy to live in the back of your truck?

If I had a choice, I would go to Wilmington. I haven't been to the actual campus, but I live 30 mins south of Harrisburg and have been there plenty of times. I think the access to the beach, tons of courts, and Dover Downs would seal the deal for me towards Wilm.
Harrisburg, well.....it isn't anything to brag about. They do have a minor league team, and the state capital offices are all there (about 15 mins from the campus), but it's still Harrisburg. It is like sending your buggy to pimp my ride....there is only so much they can do to it.

Congrats.....beautiful place. I was there about a month ago. Best campus I have ever been on.

Congrats....I am waiting for mine any day now.

I think they are ranked pretty far apart.....but that doesn't mean that much to me.
Campbell is a pretty new school compared to UNC.
I used to live near Campbell in lovely Fayetteville, NC and you couldn't pay me enough to go back there. It is nice and rural if that appeals to you.
For me, UNC hands down.
