    That's more selective than the schools I'm already worrying about.

    Though yeah, a state school--such as UMass Amherst--would be fine.

    What's sort of funny is that today in philosophy class, someone was discussing colleges with their friend, and they mentioned that UMass Amherst--where I'm basically guaranteed admission due to my SAT being over a standard deviation above their average admission score (I'm guessing for scores that much above average, the "holistic" stuff haunting me goes out the window)--was their reach. Puts things into perspective, I guess. :p

    I was you except with a slightly lower SAT, and then I watched half the people I knew who went to further away, more impressive schools transfer back just to be closer to home before the end of year 2. There's more I want to say on that seemingly sudden appearance of comfort as a motive, but I'll have to get back to it later.

    It's kind of crazy what big decisions we have to make at a time where there's still so much we haven't experienced, so feeling similarly kind of crazy over it is only to be expected. No embarrassment needed.

    I just realized Trigglypuff goes/went to UMass Amherst

    Meh, whatever. Absolutely no SJWs would actually be kind of weird; I want diversity of thought/opinion. And there are nearly 30k undergrads there, so yeah.

    It's the people with aptitude and persistence who succeed. The prestige of the school can make things slightly easier but it does not make or break things.

    I like to rock n' roll all night and *part* of every day. I usually have errands... I can only rock from like 1-3.
