Just want to congratulate everyone else who will be heading to South Bend this Fall.
It may be worthwhile to meet some future classmates now so that by the time we get up to ND, we'll already know some people.
My name is G and I am graduating from the University of Florida in 12 days. I was born in Brazil and moved to the US when I was 9. I've lived in Tampa, FL ever since moving here.
I went to the Visitation Day back in February and fell in love with the school all over again. When I was a HS senior looking at colleges, I visited ND and knew I had to go there at some point. I cannot wait to get there in August.
My decision came down to Emory [w/ similar $], Minnesota, and IU-Bloomington [full tuition]. I decided that my heart was at ND and that REALLY helped with my decision.
I am wait-listed at Vandy, Georgetown, and Penn. I don't know what I'll do if any of those come through. What I do know is that it'd be a tough decision, all things considered.
That's a little bit about me.
I look forward to hearing something about others who'll be joining me at ND.
