or I suppose you could use the university computers, with terragen on a usb drive, oh what a oppotunity I missed:(..

Oh, yeah... if I can just get my hands on a computer lab for even 24 hours... instant animation :P.

which brings to mind what school you guys applying to? And Ive leagers here.

I visited a couple of Ivy League schools and decided that they were a bit too big for my tastes.  I might try to go to one of them for grad school.  Instead, I'm going to their small liberal arts counterparts.  My top three are Swarthmore College, Middlebury College, and Northwestern University.

Yeah, these forums are pretty impressive.  I really like the SMF features, and everyone here is really helpful - I haven't seen a single person get flamed yet ;).

heh yea I may be the youngest guy on these fourms being only a sophmore in highschool, which would explain the lack of flaming.

Will
There are quite a few active young people on these forums, which is interesting and shows that there is a potential for Terragen to be introduced into some qualifications. For example, oggyb, MeltingIce, Will and I are all apparently under 20, and yet we are top posters 10, 7, 2 and 4 respectively.
Hahaha, yes I am seriously under 20 (18 since January to be exact).

Neat, I like their website. I ask this of you guys becuase after taking the PSATs  I have gotten about thirty emails regards collages that I will not be even appling to for anouther two years. Its just so tempting since I live one hour away from cambrige. 100 miles from three of the best schools in the world.

Yeah, after I took the PSATs, my inbox started filling up with college mail.  When it peaked this summer, I used to get 4 or 5 college emails per day.

Well I plan to go into computer science but so far my summer job has been as a lab techie at the local university working in the Biology, oceanogrfy department. I also find astrology intresting and like to go play with my teloscope and before I set a feild on fire my friend and I would build rockets.
