Date: May 02 2005 Major: Anthropology (This Major's Salary over time) The University of Virginia, like most things in life, can give back to you what you are willing to put into it. I was extremely reluctant to go to UVa in High School - but with much encouragement from my parents, I dragged myself there. After a rather grumpy adjustment period, I discovered that with some effort, I could find the people I wanted to spend time with - literary types, Greek types, athletic types, political types - and combinations of all of the above. I also discovered that if I wanted to, I could be any or all of those "types" as well. Both the education in the classroom (which is intimidating in lower-level intro classes, but becomes more intimate and unbelievably invaluable the more you're willing to challenge yourself in higher-level classes) and out is unique to the mix of suburb and country, preppy and academic, Jeffersonian and pajamas-to-class. The 4 years I spent at UVa were exciting, educating, and fun - and I never rushed a sorority (though I did party at Frats on the weekends I didn't hang out watching movies or talking about classes or theories or the politics of the day!). Good luck, it will be worth it!
