I'm still a Marylander at heart. just not nerdy enough to get into umd these days.
The good thing is you will get to see some really good football
Dealing with my pregnant girlfriends mood swings.
My days go from heaven to hell about 50/50 at this point. It will probably drop to 70/30 hell to heaven over the next three months and then I can deal with an infant child crying all the time. I'm fantastic.
No honestly, I'm pumped. My girlfriend isn't near as bad as my ex wife during the process and I had no problem with my first child. He didn't cry hardly ever and actually let us sleep for the most part. Fingers crossed on this one.
Very cool, I appreciate it. I've never done a college visit before so I'll have to ask the bama guys here what to see or do. I can already see the friendliness of the south.
That may be the biggest change of them all. Excited to see running backs rush for more than 3 yards at a time, tackles made, ect. Haven't seen those in a while.
You are going to become a way bigger football fan at Bama
Haha...I hear ya
Jesus you didn't get accepted?
I'm sorry but that is foreign to me. While I puff my chest out, The only letter of denial that I got from out of 30 was from Brown when I was in high school. I told my father that I would apply to thirty schools and I would include two Ivy League schools. I was actually accepted to Cornell.
Thing was that not all acceptance letters come with scholarships. I actually really wanted to go to Vanderbilt because I had an uncle that lived in Nashville but I wasn't paying 40k a year (10k a year they offered on scholarship) to go there. It went on down the line.
There was a reason that I went to a small school with a high ranking engineering program though. It cost about 30k a year and they gave me 25k a year on scholarship. It's worked out even through some bumps in the road when I was there.
DONT FORGET YOUR ROOTS MAN

He will be hooked after the first home game he sees.
I'm sure he's seen nothing like it.
I wasn't a huge college football guy before going to PSU, but after that first game, I became obsessed.
Its pretty damn hard to get into MD now especially as your average everyday type of student. Every Sauce post makes me wish I was still back in hs applying and visiting to colleges.
And since were measuring our dicks here BC and ND were my only rejections
ohhh dude I'll always support the terps considering I care more than like 98% of the student body right now. I've been in Maryland for a while now, this will always be my home state. But I've also wondered what it's like in other parts of the world, ya know? I've never even been to your hometown lol
My father actually did most of the grunt work on the applications. Man actually did it as a hobby. I had to do the essays and all that BS, but he wanted as many choices as I could have.
When I pulled a 34 on my ACT it was kind of a whirlwind. I had a 4.5 GPA in high school but that ACT cemented it.
Where else did you apply?
wow that's amazing. I made sure I applied to only public schools, mostly because I wanted to go to a big school and knew they were cheaper than privates.
Didn't know you were that smart.
Sauce....make sure you go to a lot of away games. You will really enjoy it
bleh... applications suck. And senior year feels like a waste of time since they make you focus so much on your future like you pretend to care about your current classes.
I've heard that BC was real tough to get into. Don't know much about Notre Dame. I didn't apply to either of them. I have heard that actually UVA and BC are the tough ones in that little region though. Well outside the smaller ones like, I want to say James Madison and there is another one in Williamsburg, VA that was right down the street from where I started my career.
Well I'm a wastewater engineer with a MS in Hydraulic Engineering. I'm not a brain surgeon or anything but I'm not a fvcking idiot.
ND, BC and UVA are all real tough. I think the other school you are thinking of is William and Mary which is another really good school.
That would be cool, I've always wanted to do an SEC road trip. I guess you gotta find the right friends with some good money and connections.
Sacred Heart and St. John's as my locals, got a little money to each. Suny-Cortland (for teh cheap instate tuitions), Syracuse, Penn State, Delaware, MD, Villanova.
