Brigham Young University
I would just like to say something. I have NEVER not wanted to go to BYU. They have a fantastic education and BYU's reputation in the world is not only immaculate despite its faults but, it is also praised. I have always believed that if I got into BYU even if I got a scholarship to go somewhere else, I would choose BYU. I got a half ride for four years to LDS Business College, and no scholarship at BYU. I'm not even sure I got accepted to BYU-I, I don't know if I ever saw the letter, maybe I didn't even apply. The point is, this...and it might seem a little harsh, but. IF you came to BYU as a last resort, or, because you weren't sure what to do, or, because it was cheap, because of a friend, because your parents told you they wouldn't pay unless you did, and consequently you don't want to be here, I just want to say, ok that's fine. GET OUT! There are people, and I actually know a few who would give SO much, and have such a desire to be here. I guess, I just don't understand. There are people who I know hate going to school/college because they wish so bad they could be here. They feel like they aren't good enough, because they can't get in.
