im going to the University of russia
I assume you mean Lomonosov? You know, Moscow State University? Get your post-Soviet higher education right, noob.
Well, I'm (all but certainly) going to Stony Brook University on full scholarship :D
Awesome! Stony Brook's a great place for the sciences and you're not too far from the city (although suburbia does leave a lot to be desired).

This summer is going to be full of about 8 college visits, and then researching others like U of Chicago and BYU more thoroughly. My parents are going to kill me.

Yes, and congrats on making it to the best state! Granted, you're ~7 hours from the better part of the best state, but... still. :P

Thanks guys! And hey, I'll take whatever warm weather I can get, especially after 17 long years in neverending rain. :P

Thought I'd finally join the thread. I got accepted to Northwestern, but I'll be heading to Drake University next year in Des Moines.

So the final results are in:

Accepted:
Columbia
University of Chicago
Brown
University of Pennsylvania
Tufts
Johns Hopkins
Boston College
Stony Brook
University of Maryland - College Park
Northeastern
UCLA
UC Berkeley
University of Vermont

Rejected:
Harvard
Yale
Stanford (I'm going to get flak for this, but I wouldn't have gone even if I had gotten in)
University or Wisonsin-Madison (I forgot to finish my application, so they denied me. I really don't care)

Waitlisted:
Northwestern

So, I'm not sure where I'm going just yet, but I'm probably going to be choosing between Brown, UChicago, and Columbia, unless somewhere else offers me money.

Wow, these are some awesome schools! You've got some good Ivy League choices. What are you looking to become?
