I find it quite frightening that I'm looking at colleges... It seems like I should have two or more years left of high school, but that isn't quite the case here! I'm super excited to look at my potential home for the four years after high school. I'm a bit nervous too, though.
Anyhoo, this is what I'll be doing!
University of North Carolina, Chapel Hill
UNC is the first stop! I'm touring it with one of my best friends and I'm really looking forward to seeing the campus. I've heard it's gorgeous! We're also going to go shopping in downtown Raleigh. Apparently the boutiques are adorable!
University of Virginia
UVA is next! I only really got gung-ho about UVA when my friend from camp told me about it. She's going there in the fall and loves it so much! She and I are so alike that I had to check it out. Turns out the campus is gorgeous and the school is amazing! The best part is that the day I tour the campus is the same day my friend has orientation. It's a win-win!
Also while staying at my grandparents we're going to head to UPenn for a day! I'm really excited to see their business school and although this is a reach school for me, I can't wait to learn more about it and see what everything is like. I also hope we get a chance to pop over to the Amish areas of Pennsylvania. They have the best bakeries!
New York City (!!)
I cannot even explain to you my excitement for this part of the trip. My mother, being the best mom in the world, booked three nights in a hotel in the middle of Times Square! We're going to see Aladdin on Broadway and shop on 5th Avenue and everything else there is to do in New York. Carly from the College Prepster has a fabulous New York City guide that I plan to follow entirely. I can't wait!!
And finally, as I'll be in New York, I figure I might as well tour Columbia. (And pretend to be like Nate from Gossip Girl.) I can't wait to see the campus!
Are you planning any road trips any time soon?
