    First off, congratulations. I know how hard you must have worked to get this.

    How did you receive word? Status page, letter in the mail, or email from RS?

    Whoohoo! Merry Christmas and Semper Fi!

    Get in shape this summer, if not before. Even if you think you're already in shape, you aren't. Work harder. Knock the ball outta the park when you get there for the PFT. Congratulations. :thumb: Now the real work begins! :eek:

    Almost had that perfect PFT score! Got a 298, but I'm hungry for that 300! You can bet I'm going to be working plenty hard!

    My Uncle's a Colonel and of course he had to rag on me for not getting that 300, just more motivation I suppose!

    Yes Oregon State was my first choice. It's in state, plus they have an excellent Civil Engineering program, which is what I'm interested. I still don't know for sure that it is where I will be attending, but my adviser said its most likely where I'll end up due to being first board/in state.

    Other choices:
    2) University of Washington
    3) University of San Diego
    4) University of Arizona
    5) University of Michigan
