"Looks like there'll be a change of plans".
After changing my mind 4 times in the span of 2 years, spending days looking for US universities and desiccating my eyes , I have finally settled on one: Indiana University - Bloomington, Indiana.
I think all that staring at the deadly screen made the blood vessels in my eye burst.
Australian U's don't offer grants and financial aid as generously as the US. My super-duper GPA and the U's generosity will help make things easier and being in the US has its perks, of course. For one, there's CHEAP CHOCOLATE AND ICE-CREAM!!
The short-listed universities were Purdue, IU-Bloomington and Michigan State.
What made IU-Bloomington so irresistible was the scholarships it offered.
With a GPA of 3.8, you stand a chance of receiving $9000/yr! Unfortch, I have only 3.75, so it's $5000.
In fact, they stated on their website that we shouldn't make a decision based on IU-B's scholarships... which we did.
My Mum got so excited by the scholarships they offered, she asked me to "apply now"; with "now" being 4.30am.
So we'll see how many courses my Diploma can save me from doing and carry on from there. I don't think we're even considering Australia anymore... I'm not sure.
Looks like I have to start learning how to convert between Fahrenheit and Celsius.
Which I've figured out here:
F = [(x'C - 1'C)*1.8'F]+33.8'F
C = (F - 33.8'F/1.8'F)+1'C
Hot damn! My Math is still working!
