You go girl! It sounds like you have some amazing plans and you are doing all the ground work to get what you want. Keep it up and you’ll succeed.

As for the noisey “kids” in class I can totally relate. We have a huge policy about people like that at my University because in reality YOU are the one paying for your education. I would say something to your instructor or department. Unfortunately your education is too important to allow twits to ruin it for you. I hope things get better in this respect.

Good luck!! All my positive vibes 🙂

I am sending you positive vibes! I am a senior and today is my first day of my last semester! I am applying to a master’s program right now and I am super nervous. Up until this year I had wanted to go to Law School, until my favorite professor convinced me to go into academia instead. 

Good luck with your scholarships and aid!

That is wonderful!!!  As another non-traditional student (39!) I can relate.  I have noticed that the disrespectful students tend to thin out as you take more advanced classes.  It helps if the Professor has a firm grasp in his or her class;  I had a psych professor who would warn someont twice and then drop them if they were obnoxious, he’d even call security if need be!  I witnessed him drop more than one student.  He was an awesome guy too, just not willing to tolerate high school behavior.  I really appreciated that and in other classes, I have had talks with instructors who did NOT address the “troublemakers”.   It helps also to hear from students “Hey, I would appreciate it if these people were not allowed to destroy my time here”. 🙂

Can you tell me more about how PTK will help with grants?  I am interested in joining PTK also at my school but their dues are $75, not a lot of money but right now a bit too much.  I wasn’t aware that it would help with grants in any way though… I’d just read that some schools offered special scholarship money for PTK members (unfortunately, though, not the university I must attend when I transfer).
