    Default Your Alma Mater

    Being a high school senior, I am applying to school and I was accepted to the University of Louisville, where I plan to attend next fall. That got me wondering, what are your alma maters?

    I will never go back to school. I'm done. Been 10 years since I graduated IU with my Bachelor's and I'm never going back to school...unless it's to learn a language (wife is Venezuelan, so I need to learn Spanish at some point). Wife is already looking at Master programs.

    Yeah, I'm not going to lie: I'm not excited about it. It's a chance to go somewhere new and meet new people though, as well as paying an obscene amount of money for a non-vital piece of paper.

    One more semester at Ivy Tech and will have my degree. I really love Ivy Tech I have saved so much $$. I am in the process of looking for a school to transfer to now. Xavier and IU are my top 2 choices. I have a few more I am considering as well.

    I'd have to think IU would be cheaper than Xavier unless you are getting financial aid. Xavier is private isn't it?

    Yes it is private sadly and crazy expensive. I have a 4.0 somehow at Ivy Tech ( I have come so long from my Warren Central days where I just didn't give a f about school) I just joined Phi Beta Kappa and Phi Theta Kappa. I am hoping a few colleges offer me a full ride. I can get 20k off of Xavier 32k tuition because of my grades. At IU I should get a few grand off.


    I really like Xavier's staff and I am confident I can earn being a student manager there so I really like that idea. Honestly i don't care much about the school's as long as I can work with the basketball team. I might go the route that xavier's director of basketball ops went. He went to IU for undergrad and got hired at Xavier and got his grad degree paid for.

    I plan to work the IU camps this summer(I am hopeful I can work a camp every week this summer at many different schools. I feel I will learn a lot that way) if I can get the assurance from coach Miller (women's coach) or coach Crean that I can get a trial period as a student manager I will go to IU. I plan to live in whatever gym I am at lol I just need a chance to prove myself.
