Acceptances, Denials, and Waitlists / Denied at U. Florida

Didn't really want to go here anyways, but I got my "can't act affirmatively" letter.  I would much rather live in Tampa than Gainesville, but UF was a heck of a lot cheaper.

That is strange. Congrats though! Who needs Stetson!  ;)

I do!!  Maybe I will have a phone call on my answering machine when I get home.

How did you figure out the cost for the rental truck?  Darn sentimental furniture....

U-haul's website will let you get a quote to where you are going and they have some rough estimates for the size of truck you might need.  For me, 2-3 BR, at least one trip with a 14' truck.  Budget, Penske, et al. had similar things. is pretty neat if you don't mind shelling out a little extra $$.

Some good info here.....I am not sweating it at all.  Worst case, I end up taking more in loans than I need and pay it back right away (lol.....discipline).

As to part of the OP's question....moving budget.  I did my budget for the farthest school and the one I am most likely to attend(Stetson from PA).  I need around $3,000 in spare cash to move door to door.  That's for the rental truck, rent deposit, utilities, miscellaneous junk, etc.  I put away an extra $1,000 on top of that because I am $hitty at math and something else always pops up, but I have moved many times and this was about the cheapest I could do it.

I'm going to Paris from the 11th-18th. Very excited!

Wow....coincedence....I am going to be in Paris from March 4-12th.  School trip, dirt cheap that I couldn't turn down.  I can't wait....look at, there are tons of great tips on there.  This will be the first vacation by myself in 6 years, so I am looking to have a good time.  Good present for ourselves for actually making it through college and to rest up before the madness starts in August.

biological scholarships.

That's hilarious, I am to the point now where I will take some of those as well.

I celebrated pretty big my first acceptance, because Stetson was also my top pick and the first one to get back to me.  Fortunately, it came on V-day and I already had reservations at a fancy restaurant.  I slipped my acceptance letter into my fiancee's V-day card and told her that way.

Her parents called the restaurant while we were on the way and had the hostess anounce their congratulations in front of everyone that I was accepted and they bought our bottle of wine that evening.  It was a real class move and then a few attorneys who happened to be dining there came over and congratulated me.  Fortunately, someone else had given me a gift certificate for this place and her parents bought the bottle of wine, because it was wickedly expensive, but I couldn't have planned it better than it turned out.

DON'T DO IT!!!!  I spent two weeks on a single game that I beat 10 years ago......didn't get a damn thing done.  Was pretty fun though.

That's what I did.  All 4 years at Penn State York!!  I haven't set foot on main campus since 1995 when I went to a football game. 

As for the dual campus, maybe it will end up more autonomous like Widener-PA and Widener-DE

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.
