Wow, you are AP-Woman! Seems like you've taken tons already. How many AP's will you end up with by the time you graduate, anyway?

ugh. Uhm. let me think. I've taken Euro, US, and Physics already. This year I have Government, Calculus (BC--the hard one. . .), English, and French. I also have AP Art, which is a portfolio. It's not mandatory, but I'd like to do it. At least it's not a test to take. Plus, I'm doing Physics C, which is physics with calculus, as an independent study. So I'm basically meeting with a teacher, planning what I need to do, and doing it myself. But, if that turns out to be too much, I can just not do it and have to totally wiped from my record like I never even tried it.

so, uh, yeah. . . XD

Basically, I'm taking every AP offered to me except Psych, which is an elective AP. And I'm not doing the other science APs. lol.

Wow! I only did 3: Calc, Computer Science, and English. But I don't think my school offered as many as yours. (I also totally took the easy way out on my calc, because I took the BC course but the AB exam! By the end of the year I'd decided that "calcuseless" just wasn't my thing.)

Oh, and btw my "safety school" was Kalamazoo College, in Michigan. It's a great school, I know lots of smart people who went there, I'm sure you'd love it, but it's not very near NY....

Yeah, Michigan is farther than I was looking, but I'm rather desperate, and I will definitely look at it! If it's a school that I'd like in other ways, the basic restrictions I had to narrow things down can be overlooked. I got distracted in the middle of that sentence, which is why it may not make much sense.

Anyway, thank you, I will check it out :)

Amherst is also one I'm interested in, but I'm kind of looking at all-women's schools. . . I'm not sure. (you went to Amherst, right?)

Yep, I went to Amherst...great school! I really enjoyed my experience there. Neither Amherst nor K-zoo were girls' schools though... can't help ya there.

oh, that's ok. Wesleyan is another of my top schools. I'm actually still a little worried about the decision to go to an all-girls school--it fluctuates. And I guess it doesn't help that I'm still totally confused about my sexuality. And it's weird because I'll argue with myself about being confused. Like, there's almost no way for me to know what I like without having tried anything, but my mind still wants to make a decision. I kinda drifted there. lol.

I don't know...if you're wondering about who you're attracted to, maybe it makes sense to go to a school with plenty of exposure to both sexes?

well, the thing is, I'm, euh, at least moderately certain that I like men. The main thing in question is if I like women also. And even liking men (although none in particular because I only know high school boys), I still feel like I'd be more comfortable going to an all-women school, dating and everything aside. I'm not exactly certain why, something just appeals to me about it. Maybe because I've been competing with men for a long time. Most of my friends are girls anyway. Although apparently you get sick of being around just women. I'm hoping that they won't be like the girls in my high school--but they can't be, because a) most of them won't be from long island, and b) they'll all be smart enough to have gotten accepted to Smith or Wellesley, or Barnard or wherever. Obviously I'm still totally confused about everything. XD It's a scary decision though, and I'm afraid of messing up.
