on today's schedule ....accepted students day at Fordham

and unless we hear something totally horrifc, it looks like Becca will become a Fordham student in the fall.  In fact, she's already sent her deposit to the school.

she will be at the Lincoln Cneter campus, not the Bronx campus -- there are almost 3000 undergrads there, and many more grad students.  her "dorm" will be an apartment she shares with 3-5 other girls.  she'll be a subway ride and a LIRR ride away from home. 

it's not what I imaged six months ago, when she began this process.she was looking at big city schools, but she was looking at schools in other states.  initially she had her heart set on Boston University or George Washington...she wanted to be away at school.  she kept talking about going away and seeing new places.

but then again, Jen's decision surprised me a bit, too.  Jen wanted to stay close to home, she imagined herself at a school on Long Island, living in a dorm but coming home on weekends.  that is, until she got accepted to two schools out of state.  and fell in love with URI.

funny how things work out, isn't it?

so now Aries the Ram (the Fordham mascot) will join Rhody the Ram (the URI mascot, of course!) as Becca takes her place in the college of her choice.

Congratulations Becca! She's going to have the best of both worlds, being away from home yet still close by. A bonus feature of her decision (as you well know), it's not too expensive to come home on weekends either!
