Denials / 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!  ;)

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.  www.pods.com 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 virtualtourist.com, 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
