it is admirable to strive for it, but don't think that you'll attain or be accepted as a Southern gentleman just because you go to school at Ole Miss. I'll harden Scarlett's line to say that you do have to be born into it, just as i couldn't become a yankee regardless how long i might live in the north (though i never intend to). when i was looking at the school, they seemed more than willing to offer assistance, so that may be a very good starting point for the apt search and yes, the campus is beautiful (as are the lovely Southern ladies).
Your kind words of wisdom are as lovely as a Magnolia and as sweet as my tea! Congratulations on your acceptance and I look forward to meeting you in the fall! (assuming you choose Mississippi mud over red clay )
