Im like GoofyGirl, i am attending a "white" school--VCU-- (trust, its only white cuz of the name :roll: ), and last year about this time i had my heart set on Howard. My pockets wont let me go there, so im trying to go there for graduate school. But even though im not a HBCU now, i think that VCU is the next best thing. Their reputation is remarkable, and the black college experience-i get just about everything, but if i really need to be at a HBCU i can WALK to VUU and chill wit my peeps there, or take a ride to VSU and hang out there. :lol: If you are in VA and wondering or even thinking about a white school to go to, but done want it to be too "white", consider VCU. It's a good school and we have a lot of fun here too. Trust, next year half of VSU's & VUU's freshman class of this year will be here, at VCU. :wink:
im considered Agnes Scott college, which is an all-girls school in august, ga & then some random **** in-state school in case everything else falls thru - i dont even know which one, i'm just gone put all the names in a hat & whichever one i pull out i'm gone apply to. All the in-state schools in Washington suck!
I was considering applyin to Temple.................but..............they ONLY let FRESHMEN live ON CAMPUS.......................i'm a transfer student. i cant be playin like that!
Naw, actually UW is a really good school - it is nationally accredited & it one of the best in the west! The academics are excellent - very challenging - & the place is huge!
I'm just sick of washington - the weather and the colleges have basically no diversity (the highest is like 7% - 8% black). The UW is a huge **** school, you just kind of feel like a number when you're there - it's very easy to get lost in the sauce (i.e slip thru the cracks) when u're there. Like i said, it's a great school but it's not what i'm looking for size, diversity, & location wise...for someone else it may be the best choice
