College career update

As you may or may not know, I applied to the advertising and marketing communications program at FIT in Manhattan. Unbeknownst to me, it's actually one of the most competitive programs at the school, especially at the bachelors degree level.

Up until recently I had not received a response from them. I called to check on the status of my application and they told me they were awaiting my TOEFL (English proficiency) scores. Sure, you can laugh... I did too! I emailed their administrator and made it abundantly clear that I did not need to take the test to qualify!!! Unfortunately the Bachelors program is now filled.

HOWEVER! I have a possible advantage-if I don't complete my AAS here, I may be able to transfer my current credits to a degree there and just leave Jersey.

I love my mother, I love my father, and of course you all know I love my sister. I can't imagine life without them and I would miss them terribly. But... I also can't continue to feel trapped in my own skin. I'm going to save all the money I make this summer, maybe even find a second job. I'll arm-wrestle the lovely people of the admissions department at FIT if I have to. But I have NO intent of remaining in NJ any longer past august of this year.

Oh and it doesn't hurt that FIT openly admits undocumented aliens 0:)

Watch me go!
