View Full Version : OT - Unexpected Letters (or "IGOTINTOCOLLEGE!")

07-20-2006, 01:20 PM
I'm so excited that I'm just gonna BUST! I need to tell somebody!
I got a letter yesterday that says I've been admitted to Portland State University. I'm SOOO thrilled! I didn't get my letter back in May like everyone else so I assumed that I hadn't gotten in but I DID and now I'm caught up in all of the stuff I need to do beforehand. I just registered for orientation and I got a Student ID # - HEE! That makes me insanely giggly. I'm just so happy that I'll be going to college!

What made you choose Portland?
They're smaller than UofO or OSU but they have a Linguistics program like UofO. Actually, it's Applied Linguistics and from what I've read it interests me a great deal more than UofO's Linguistic program.

That is wonderful news!!!

I went to a small PacNW school (Seattle U) for undergraduate and it was a fantastic experience.

The students i have who usually do the best are the ones who didn't think they'd get there somehow (money, HS grades, scores, etc)... I have a feeling that you will flourish with the new challenges and the new groups of people you'll meet. Enjoy every second of it!

Your excitement is well-merited... what a new life you'll have... :cheering:

Good luck!

Congratulations, Aidan and best wishes for happy years studying to make your dreams happen. Just don't forget to pack your needles and yarn and patterns so you will still be knitting..... and I do hope you will get an occasional chance to come here and talk to us. I'm happy for you! :cheering: samm (the girl one!)
