Hi, I'm Kathleen. I've been a member of this community for a while,so I thought it was 'bout time I posted. I had an extremely difficult time making a collegiate decision, but I ultimately decided Boston College. Although many of my friends will be living in the Boston area next year, I don't know a single person planning to attend or currently attending BC. I'm excited and a little nervous.

Name: Kathleen Mahoney
Gender: female
Birthday: 8/21/87
Hometown: Albany, New York.
School: The Academy of the Holy Names (Is that pretentious sounding or what?)
SAT: 1450
ACT: didn't take it.
GPA: Our school doesn't compute it for us.
Favorite Subject: Economics and AP Calc. (yes, i like math. yes, i know it's weird.)
Least Favorite Subject: We're forced to take this relgion class called "Building Relationships." Enough said.
Intended Major?: Maybe Economics but I'm not all too sure.
What you spend your free time doing: playing piano, hanging out with my friends, reading, basking in the glow of this here computer screen, kickin' it old school.
Favorite Movies: Eternal Sunshine, I ♥ Huckabees, basically any Woody Allen and Wes Anderson film
Favorite Books: The Sun Also Rises, The Amazing Adventures of Kavalier and Clay, A Clockwork Orange, ANYTHING by Kurt Vonnegut
Favorite Music: The Microphones, The Unicorns, Radiohead, The Beatles, Of Montreal, The Velvet Underground, Neil Young, Wilco, Ben Folds, Polaris... I could go on forever.
Something about you we'd find interesting: Hmm. Well, just last night, I crashed a prom that I wasn't invited to. Two of my friends and I just walked in dressed in prom dresses, and no one suspected a thing.

See you kids in a few month!

Eternal Sunshine is a great movie. I'm surprised your school doesn't compute your GPA for you (not that I care about it), if our school didn't do that, kids here would still be running around computing their own and complaining about their GPA's still.
hahaha. There are only 80 people in my grade, so they don't even rank us, which I suppose is for the better, because it pretty much elimates any competition.
There are 241 people in my grade, and they can get VICIOUS sometimes. There's a bunch of whining over ranking too.
Do both of you go to private schools?
Yes, I go to a private all-girls school.
Yeah. I've never heard of a public school having 80 or even 241 people in a grade level, except for when it's a brand new school.
I go to a public high school.
And you only have 241 people in your grade? Wow.
My town is a suburb of over 40,000 people. The school in total has around 1000 students. I think that's pretty average, unless you go to a large town.
I live and go to school in the suburbs of Raleigh which, despite what some people may say, is not a city.

High Schools in the county have between 1500 to 2300 students and many of these, if not all, are overcrowded. I'm the 4th graduating class of my school and we already have 8 "cottages", basically 8 trailers put under one roof. And for the next school year they're putting more trailers on the practice soccer field, which is a good distance away from the school building. I don't have to worry about it though since I'm graduating in 25 days!
holy crap that is a lot of people.
i would say there is about 140 people in my graduating class give or a take a few.
This years freshman class had a record number of 620+ students and the incomding freshman class is expected to be around 700. I don't mind having so many students in my school. The only problem is that the school can't handle this surge of students.

For pep rallies only 3 grades can come if we have it in the gym, but if it's clear outside we go to the football stadium.
Second semester last year Juniors were allowed off campus lunch for the first time ever. This year the county's school system made it mandatory that all Juniors and Seniors could leave campus for lunch.
We only have about 520 parking spots available for students. As of right now any student with a license can receive a parking spot if they pay the $180, but soon enough not even all the seniors will be able to have a parking spot.

I thought that overcrowding was a problem in other states too. I guess I was wrong.
thats so crazy! there are only 184 kids in my school and i'm in public school too. we started paying for parking this year, same price, and barely have enough spaces for seniors. is that just your town or is it most towns around you?
I believe it's other towns around me.

184? Goodness. I'm tired of the 398 kids in the senior class. I don't know how I would be able to deal with only 184 students.

I guess things are a bit different down here in the south.
So far I only know two people that are/will be in Boston.
One is my brother who goes to school in Cambridge and the other person is a friend from school that's going to M.I.T next year.

I'm guessing that you're in the Carroll School of Management?
I have a TON of friends who are going to be in the Boston area: one at Bentely, one at Tufts, two at BU, two at Northeastern, one at Stonehill...it's craziness.

Actually, I'm enrolled in the College of Arts and Sciences, but I'm thinking about transferring within the university to the business school.
I love those movies. Very cool. I actually like AP Calc, too. And Economics.
So great, crashing the prom!
What can I say, I'm pretty badass.
