Although I wish I were a freshman again and had four more years at Vanderbilt, there are some perks to getting older and being closer to the dreaded “G” word (a.k.a graduation!). I always look forward to registering for classes and planning my schedule for the next semester, and being a junior, I got all the classes I wanted. Registration is based on seniority, so the seniors go first, then the juniors and so on. There isn’t much of a gap between the fall and spring semesters, and I can’t wait to start the classes I’ve picked for spring 2017!
Other life stuff: I plan on taking the GRE later this semester. GRE scores are accepted at all the graduate school programs I am looking at, and even if I do end up taking a job right after college, the scores are valid for 5 years, so I’ll be able to use them when I apply for masters programs later. I spent some of winter break studying for it, but having my mom and dad spoil me over break (not doing my own laundry or getting my own food) made studying so much easier. Having a cute golden retriever to cuddle with during study breaks was also fun :)
