yulya_b: Thank you for your participation.

Dear friends, 

    At the beginning of November I have advertised a research about college drinking. The ad was placed here as well as in several livejournal communities. I promised to share the obtained results with everybody who was so kind to response and to participate in my study. The study worked great and the results have already been submitted to a psychological journal. Please, look here for the results description. Any questions are welcome. 
    Also, if you are interested to participate in another research (very different from the previous one and also very brief, just 5 minutes long) visit this website . You help is highly appreciated.

ap2c2e: Hello potential future College Student!

I wanted to let you all know that I really hope you get in to the colleges to which you applied. That being said, the possibility exists that you won't. When I applied to college I was looking for a place that focused on how to learn over what to learn, had great books education including philosophy and an emphasis on the classics, and also a place that was a little wild and crazy. I found it when I applied to Reed College, but I got an exceptonally small letter back telling me I had been waitlisted. I realized that I had missed all the deadlines for other schools, and that I might not be able to go to college. Then my friend told me about Shimer College. When I discovered Shimer I saw everything I loved about Reed - minus the climate - and that they accept applications indefinatly.... The new class seems to be finished around a day before classes start. In the end I got in to Reed, but if I hadn't, i would surely have gone to Shimer.

Anyways I just thought you might want to know if you, like me, find yourself applying to college too late in the game or are looking for a really unique educational experiance.

Good luck!

To whom it may concern,


Forgive me if this is not appropriate, but here goes:

yulya_b: Research about college life

Hi everybody,

Could you help me? I am a psychology researcher, collecting some data online. It's regarding drinking in college. So, whether you are interested in this issue or not, if you have free 10 -15 minutes and don't mind to help, please, visit this website: http://www.misu.bmc.org/~researcher/drinking_study
If you are interested, I can share my hypotheses and results with you later (when the study is done). You help is highly appreciated.

Long story but I'll keep it brief.

I attended a 4 year college for 2 years and had good grades and then transfered to another 4 year college. Did good one semester and then I had some family issues that prevented me from going the 2nd semester. And then failed 3 classes last semester. Now it's spring semester of my "senior" year. I was told by my advisor that I was dismissed from the university. She told me I can appeal it, which I plan to do.

What does this mean? Is it possible to get back in to my current university? Will I ever be able to go back to a 4 year school? And what are my chances of transferring again?

I have to move next fall which I why I need to transfer again. Please give me any advice. Is it hopeless? :(

When colleges ask: "Why are you interested in our school?" what kind of answers are they looking for?? I know there is some sort of what to and what not to say in response to the question. Help please!

It's goofy I know, but would you believe this is for a scholarship contest? I think it's kind of cool:

I'm a student at UCF. I'm incredibly homesick. I have an amazing family, few friends, and boyfriend back home. I know up here I can make many bonds and all of that. But I feel really anxious up here. Nothing settles me down either. I go to the gym, go out with friends, and do good in school. Yet all I think about is when I can go home again. On top of that I don't feel any passion with any major. I think I need to do some major self exploration. I want to go to community college back home and relax for a year. Then maybe try this whole college thing again. But I just want to know, how do kids adjust to this?
