I got admitted into Staten Island Technical High School! *AND 1,000 POSTS*

post #1 of 7
Thread Starter 
If you guys didn't already know from my previous posts, I though of sharing my accomplishments with you guys. The news is roughly a little more than a month old but I have just discovered this section of the forums and thought of making a thread abut my accomplishment.

On February 10'th, I have received a letter in my curent school about my test results from the SHSAT (Specialized High School Admission Test), I was taking a Science Assesment at the time. Instead of having to deal with all the yelling and drama throughout the whole period, our science teacher thought it would be much better if we all opened up our letters at once. When we opened up our letters (My hands were shaking uncontrollably), I at first didn't know where to look. I scrolled down the letter to where it said "You have been accepted to the following School(s):" and right underneath it said in bold print:

Staten Island Technical High School

At the time, I was not paying attention to the other students reactions but when I did, I noticed that not a lot seemed to be jumping up and down with joy.

Now, some of you might be thinking why this school is so special, well let me give you a few reasons:

1. The school teaches Russian, which is a let down to most. To me it is a miracle because I am fluent in Russian and will soon be able to take AP Russian
2. The school was ranked #34 out of all the High Schools in the United States as of 2009
3. Staten Island Technical High School, shall I say more?

Because of this accomplishment, my parents have decided to add to my computer budget and I have built my sig rig roughly 2 weeks ago.


UPDATE: Today, on this thread (because I don't feel like making another one) I have reached 1,000 posts! Read Post #7 for more info.

I already hardly make it to my school that only takes like 25 minutes to walk to so seeing myself finding a way to get to brooklyn or manhatten is going to be hell. Stuyvesant was not a good choice for me because besides the distance, I want school to be a fun experience for me and doing my HW untill 3 @ night does not sound fun . I have heard good things about Brooklyn but again the distance is a turn off for me, however I did put it as my second choice and they also allowed me to go there.

Update
Today, as of April 13th, 2011, I have reached 1,000 posts!!!!!
I don't know what to say other than thank you OCN for being the greatest online community to me and for keeping me so interested that I would post 1,000 posts, something that all of the other forums that I have joined have not done to me . I know that my rep/post ratio isn't that great but I feel that I have contributed a lot to this community, and I am thankful for all the help in return.
