Seems like people applied to few schools. Maybe too busy.
Or maybe there's only a few schools they wanted to go to. There's diminishing returns once you get to too many. Unless you're really, really indecisive.

Have seniors decided where they are attending? This list seems dated. Maybe it can be updated if people discuss their colleges here. Seniors, where are you going to school? Why did you choose that particular school? What others were you considering? Did SO make a difference in terms of where you applied?

Years in Division B: 2

College I'll be attending: University of Pennsylvania
Major or School (if known): College of Arts and Sciences, Biology/Health and Societies
Also accepted to: Pennsylvania State University
Wait listed at: N/A
Rejected by: N/A

I applied ED to Penn (mostly because of proximity and nice financial aid), so I guess I was lucky in that sense. I was also lucky in that I had the opportunity to do Science Olympiad with a team that was super serious about it, which I really think molded me into the student I am today...I wouldn't have had a work ethic otherwise :lol: Best of luck to next year's seniors!

College I'll be attending: Columbia University
Major or School (if known): Astrophysics (go astro!)
Also accepted to: Rutgers University
Wait listed at: None
Rejected by: None

I also did ED to Columbia (and thankfully got in), but probably would have chosen Columbia even if I got deferred, accepted, and accepted to other colleges. I wanted to go to Columbia because of NYC (and the free admission to certain great museums helped a lot) and because its campus is so nice and because it has a great science and astronomy program.

I just happened to come by the forums since I was laughing at Koko's post on my wall when I accused her on Assassinator in 80 minutes... but anyways since I saw this I just wanted to shout out! And also if you live in a freshman dorm I might end up as your RA!

Definitely a hard decision! Advice for future seniors; appeal your financial aid! I appealed at Brown, and they took out all student loans for all four years and increased my grant aid over tenfold!
