    Hi! Question for you. My son got his application done and turned in to the school. We got an email from NMSC saying he had turned in his part. The school assured us they would get their part done, but now I'm having a panic attack. What if they didn't? Should we have received an email from NMSC saying the school finalized the application?

    Hi - I wanted to ask you a question. I contacted Allison at UA about a month ago and she got back to me asking me what we would like to see - she was very pleasant and said she would get back to me on our itinerary. We are going on Oct 25/26th. I have not heard back from her - do you think I should contact her or do you think she will be back to us closer to our visit? I don't want to bug her but I also want to make sure we are still on her radar. Thanks

    Do you have any clue why the moderators will not allow the posting of photos from other sites? I posted a link to a pic of newly renovated Russell Hall, and the CC gestapo deleted my thread! I think it is a ridiculous policy. The pic was positive, so what is their deal? I guess now that I am think about it, I am one of the few who posts pics of the campus. But its weird that after several years of posting links, they delete my post now.

    Thanks for the post on my thread I just wanted to get a bit more imput since you sound like you really know what you are talking about. Thanks again.
    So finacialy at the absolute most my grandparents (from both sides) would be giving at total of 40k each year at MOST- its in a college fund. But my brother was able to get a good chunk of financial aid at BC say 15k each year probably a bit more. So I will absolutely qualify for finacial aid. But if don't get the financial aid and scholars I can't go since my parents won't be able to pay for it, like at all. And where would you say that NYU, emory and wisconsin fit into the ranking? Also my intended major is econ, business, or international relations- but ot be honest I'm farely flexable. What schools would you recommend?

    Hope you don't mind me sending a message.....I've followed your posts for years. My eldest daughter didn't end up at Bama (just moved her to UIUC yesterday), but other daughter is now a senior and Bama is still a contender :-)

    I hope this isn't inapproporate to ask, but my daughter is going through sorority rush in a couple weeks and I remember you offering to write rec letters in the past? We could send you all of her infomation through email and she'd be happy to talk to you as well if you could be so kind? Thanks for any help!

    I don't see the harm in declaring Poly Sci (or whatever) as his major. It doesn't really lock him into anything. Does he have Core to complete? If so, those are the classes he'd start with anyway.

    M2CK - Hope you don't mind that I am contacting you through a PM. I was hoping you could give us some advice about my son's major. Right now he is lsited as "undecided", but he is pretty sure he will end up being a Political Science major and eventually attend law school. How big a differrence will going in "undecided" make in his schedule for the first semester? He would hate to say he is a PA major and lock himself in to this so early, but also doesn't want to set himself back by not being declared yet. Do you thikn he would get more personal attention at BB next week is he goes ahead and delares a mojr, or should he jsut saty undecided? Any advice you can give us would be greatly appreciated.

    Congrats on the 14 credits.

    With 14 credits of FL/HU, he has fuliflled that req't. That said, Honors Deductive Logic is an excellent class and should be taken by all college students for the thinking skills it develops.

    BTW...how many AP credits does he have? Does he have his Lit or History sequence complete?

    OK, so on your wonderful advice S took the CLEP Spanish and received the 14 credits towards LA. Here is where I am confused. He is in Chem. Eng. as freshman. They have of course core requirements. It looks like LA falls into HU section. If he received 14 credits for LA, does this mean he doesn't need any more HU requirements. He wants to take Honors Deductive Logic PHIL but that falls under HU. He could get three honors credits but maybe he doesn't need any more HU based on CLEP credits. Help!

    Hi

    My son has CH101-001 (42315) and CH101-015 (42722) for 8AM classes M,W,R,F.

    He changed his Math 125 to Math 125-008 on M, T, W, R starting at 1PM those days. He tried to change his CH101 to CH101-004 (42318) T and R at 11-12:15PM and an appropriate lab. The web site said they were both open.

    It keeps coming up with an error code saying in conflict with Math 125 40778 even though these are not the same times according to what I am reading. How can this be?

    Hi again, I echo what others have said about your great information.

    My son did get his Chem Eng. schedule. Unfortunately he did get 8:00 classes four days a week but it will help get him going for the day. A couple of questions. He wanted a Psych course so he obtained PSY 105 Honors, but it is an on-line class. Do you have experiences in how they work? Is it worthwhile? He also has an Eng 151 but it is Honors. Will that be tougher than regular Eng 151? He was also locked out of Outdoor Action to register even though he has paid and been accepted. How does he get an overrride to make sure that is registered and he gets credit. Also, what days can he go in and try to tweek his schedule. Many thanks!

    Thanks for all your advice about Bama. My son (junior) has now announced that he is only applying to Bama. While I would love for him to go there, I am not sure that this time next year, he is going to be sold on going to college 800 miles from home and so am worried. Wanted to check one thing to see if his understanding is correct. He is thinking that because he will be in Honors college, that he will have all small classes. I am thinking that the kids only take 2 or so Honors classes and so the other classes will be really big. Which is correct in your experience? And how big are the other classes? If it matters, he is waffling between majoring in Comp Sci and Political Science.
