Due to Tmth's popular and now diverse thread...What colleges and universities are you all planning to apply to? (For including Seniors, though anyone can post what they're looking at as well)

I'm looking at graduate programs.  If I stay domestic, I'm definitely going for a PhD.  My top choices are Maryland's Linguistics program, NYU's Psych program, and URochester's Cognitive Science program.  I'm also applying for a Marshall Scholarship, which is two years postgrad in the UK (so, not enough for a PhD); my top choices right now are University College London's Psych program and York's Psych program.

Here's the list of schools I'm applying/have applied to:

Indiana
Oral Roberts
Kansas
Pittsburgh State
Eastern Illinois
Purdue
Indiana State
Ball State
Notre Dame
Hillsdale College

Bolded my Top 5. Hard to do 5 though. I'm not entirely in love with IU yet, but I don't really have another solid option.

My community college.  Eventually UGA and maybe Georgia Tech.  Georgetown in my dream school, but I have neither the grades nor the money.

More likely than not I'll end up enlisting Sad

Ah, I wish I could go back to college and get my bachelor's... But alas, for now, the dream seems for naught.

I'm going to apply to Ozarks Technical Community College. It's unique in that every student pays for his education by working in one of the number of on-campus businesses run by the college, so every student graduates totally debt-free.

UNC-Greensboro- I was planning on trying to transfer there in a few years, but they are going thru budget problems and are raising tuition

Appalachian State- I really want to go here as well in a few years. They charge a low tuition for a non state school.

Winston Salem State- Good school with a low tuition but it is an all black school. I would not fit in.

Greensboro College- Great school and love their colors but they charge way too much to go there.  Good a great history department.

UNC-Charlotte- Like the school and is not as expensive. If I do good enough at my Community College I can maybe get a scholarship.

I don't know what I want to do yet, either become a history teacher, get a Political Science degree, or something in TV. I also did not take the SAT in high school either which I should have done.

Yeah, LOYNO is a pretty neat school. After LSU, it was my second choice. I might go there for grad school.

With the scholarship, I got it down to $14k; not bad, but still not cheap.

The most expensive was Tulane....$54k!!!!! That's insane.

It's 4 years in the States.  And that's probably annual pricing.  I went to Tulane myself back in the day, it wasn't quite as expensive back then, but still pricey.  I think it was something like $34k before you count financial aid and scholarships.

This is what I'm beginning to look at

Harvard
Princeton
Yale
MIT
University of Virginia
Georgetown
University of Pennsylvania
Washington and Lee
George Washington
William and Mary
University of Chicago

Somewhat in that order ish. And no, there's really nothing that would keep me anywhere but the east coast for schools. And now that I look at it this list creepily closely resembles Ben's... Tongue

To the eyes of an uninformed foreigner, this list looks like the crème de la crème (forgive me my use of French Wink) of America's top universities. I'm pretty impressed!

I still need to get accepted first Wink But now that Harvard and Princeton have brought back early admissions...that helps out a lot.

Im 3 years away, but I figure I should have my choice selected. WVU, and FSU are my choices for now, but I might go to Indian River State for 2 years first, then to FSU.

about to begin my senior year at UT San Antonio, looking to go into a graduate program in Public Administration...so far, a first draft list consists of:

-University of North Texas
-UNC Chapel Hill
-University of Texas at Arlington
-Texas State
-University of Illinois - Chicago
-Syracuse
-Carnegie Mellon
-LSU

combination of reaches, bit more realistic shots and an in-state safety or two...what worries me is that I am not too stellar of a candidate at the moment (at least not in comparison with my competition, I can only imagine) so I definitely need to work extra hard and be super productive these next 16 months or so (i'll be graduating in December of 2012).

None of those are schools I could get into, so I don't see any reaches there.

Well, I feel that way about the top six or so (minus Cornell), but I think I could get into at least one or two of them.
