Important, kerfuffled college stuff. Help, I'm drowning in paperwork! [Feb. 4th, 2006|07:04 am]
My head's spinning. I wanna get all this application/transfer stuff done as soon as possible so I can deal with the financial aid aspect of it next. So far I've:

-Applied to Kean and paid the fee.
-Printed out transcript request forms for Gavilan, Sierra, and CHSPE records.
-Talked to my counselor about financial aid, transfer, etc.
-Worried how the hell I'm going to save up $10,000 before the fall to cover tuition and on-campus living expenses. Have earned $1500 now and can probably get $3000 before then, but still: ugh. If I don't get several scholarships/loans, I'll be screwed. And that's really cheap for a university, too! *head spins*
-Found out that Kean's campus bookstore is also a Barnes&Noble. Yeeees!!! That really soothed my nerves a lot. I'll have to see if Matt can transfer me or something, but either way I pretty much have a guaranteed job there with this one's experience.

Oh! I'm not sure if I told you yet, but I'm not going to be living with Ari and his family until probably Fall 2007. The main reason is because they're remodeling that side and it would be kinda disruptive to be there then (which is very understandable). They also didn't know Ari and I were planning it this soon. But, they're way too nice for letting me visit this summer anyway, and we'll be going to the same school at least and it's not very far away.

I just hope I don't kill whatever dorm roommate I get! I've found that long-term exposure to 99% of female college students tends to either make: a) them want to kill me, or b) me want to kill them (or sometimes a little of both). Yay. Mortal kombat to the max...with maces or medieval swords or dildos or something...hahaha. Or maybe a nail clippers--"In approximately 11.5 hours, I'll have made my first deadly cut! Mwahahahahaaa..!". lmao.

Planning, eeeeeeeeep....

You and your dorm mate will be fine. I was worried I would get a crappy roommate when I landed in an all girls dorm in my first year, but you know what? She was one of the coolest people I have ever met. I'm so glad that I got the chance to know her. Most of the roommates actually worked out well, which is awesome considering that it was mostly randomly chosen. You my dear, will be fine. And I can hardly imagine meeting you and then not liking you, and hey, I was a college girl!

Hopefully it will work out...VERY hopefully, lol.
