Just wondering. Also, any general tips for increasing the chances of getting into college?

well i suppose anthropology is a pretty un-popular major.

as far as your second question, you should take the SATs as early as possible so that you’ll have time to retake them if needed. also, depending on how competitive of a school you want to get into (or if you just want to look better) take the SAT II subject test in your bets subjects. some schools require it, while others recommend you take it.

start look at the common application (if you’re about to be a senior) so you can get started on those essay questions. also schools who have their own applications, take a look at those too.

get your extra curriculars in order. get in leadership positions at school. do community service. make your resume look good

also, pick teachers who will write your recommendation letters with care – they’re a LOT more important that you think.

hope this helps

I think, if we used the popular vote vs. electoral college, that we might have had a few different presidents. One would be Al Gore and another might be John McCain. Not sure on McCain, but I think that would be true. I think the total number of votes would work better in today’s world due to TV, Internet, etc. Our states used to be kind of disconnected and now we are amazingly close to one another. We share views all over the country, and the world in an instant. I would prefer the total number of votes as a whole be used vs. that system, which I feel is somewhat tainted. So, I am not sure you and I would choose the same president, but the total number of votes throughout this country ought to be the deciding factor, I think. God Bless America, but please God, could you help us do things a little better? We’re kind of in a mess. Amen.
