If you went to college, did you have a dream school? If not, did you have a dream job?

Ultimate dream school was Stanford, but I knew that wasn't going to happen. More realistic dream school was UCLA and that's where I ended up:)
That's awesome. Pretty sure someone from my high school just got into Stanford. Two are going to Penn, Four to Yale, and One to Princeton. Needless to say, my class is pretty legit:
Damn that's one smart (and probably interesting) high school! We only had a couple Ivy acceptances, granted our school was tiny, too.
Yeah, our school is gigantic. We have like 5,000 students.
I never really had a dream school. I grew up so poor and disenfranchised college was inconceivable to me. When I did finally get around to going, I had a short list of options due to my circumstances in the Navy. I was accepted into & graduated from my top choice, but it's a pedestrian University. My job pays Dream pay.....but I can't imagine anyone.....including myself....aspires to sell business software. Blech.
My only dream was to get out of IL. I've traveled the United States and have seen incredible things.
You're from Illinois too? I hate it here, I feel just like Illinois politicians, stuck in a jail cell.
I feel the same. Someday I'll get out.
My 4 year college was my local dream school. For my Masters, I got a scholarship to the school, in Ohio, that my prof attended so....money speaks.
No true dream school for me. I didn't look at it that way. I do have a dream job though. Air Force Test Pilot.
I liked UNC for awhile but I don't know if I'd have called it my dream school. I applied to 6 colleges and went to the best one that I got in to.

My dream school was UCLA but i didn't get in. So much for that dream!
I want to become an expert historian and historical researcher on Russia and particularly the Soviet era.
That's awesome! I love history, but I don't think I'd like it enough to make a career out of it. Good luck!
You are well on your way to that dream, Martin! You already know so much more than most Americans know about our history! Lol
The college I want to go to the most is the University of Wisconsin. I'll find out in a few months if I got accepted.
Great school. I would consider it, but Purdue and IU are both pretty good schools in state so they're cheaper.
Good luck! Good school, great town.
