Please list college choice and related info in list form

Postby blockhead » April 13th, 2013, 5:20 pm

I'd like to generate a simple list of where people are attending college. It would be great if this thread could remain so people could add to it each year. I know there is another thread on colleges but it has all kinds of helpful and interesting discussion on it. It takes a lot of time to extract the information about where SOers are attending school. If we can keep this dedicated only to a few pieces of information (see below) it might be a useful way for people to see quickly which colleges have substantial numbers of SO students attending. Please restrict your entry the categories listed. Then the list will stay easy to see. For discussion, return to the other thread about college. So, if you want to contribute, please copy the 7 lines listed below to your screen and fill in (like the example):

Years in Division B:
Years in Division C:
College I'll be attending:
Major or School (if known):
Also accepted to:

Example:

I'm currently a college student, in my senior year. I'm doing a five year program, so I'm staying an extra year and I'll get my bachelor's and master's in earth science education at the same time.

Stony Brook was the only college I applied to, since I knew that's where I wanted to go, given that I live literally 5 minutes away from it.

Come on seniors: post where you are going to college. Then next year those applying can look you up and ask about your school.
