At what other colleges/universities did you apply for undergraduate admission?

Illinois was my safety school. No other schools considered.

I've noticed that Jedis are really good in math.

Among other things, I'm testing my theory that Drake's "direct competitors" are actually state universities...not the five Catholic schools on Drake's official peer list.

Myself?  I only applied to Drake.  I did have a dorm deposit at Kansas, which I suppose was my second choice.  Could have applied as late as Aug, and by law, they would have been obligated to take me.

I transferred from the U of Iowa. I only applied to Iowa out of HS, mostly because I was too much of a coward to try Notre Dame and UChicago.

I graduated from high school in Eastern Iowa in 2008 and applied to Iowa, Iowa State, Loyola Chicago, DePaul, and Drake. Being from Iowa it was almost mandatory from my parents to apply to the in-state schools so I don’t know if those should actually count (I had no intention of attending either). Drake had the better academics and honestly I got a better scholarship package too so that’s how I landed there. Looking back it was definitely the right decision.
