seems simple enough...but it is driving me nuts

I need to make a Table of Contents for a project. I tried using Word, but I can never get everything to line up perfectly. I know word has a TOC procedure, but it is so freaking confusing and is no help.

Do you know of any programs out there to do this? Or do you have any other ideas?

Thank you!

I am a GED recipient, with excellent things on my highschool record. I have a mediocre ACT score (22), and an out-of-date GPA of 3.45, but I plan to work on that. My questions are these that follow.

I have high hopes of graduating from UCLA. Unfortunately, I received my GED late and procrastination has caused me to be too late to apply for this year. I also don't have the accomplishments needed.

I do not want to wait, so I've decided that I shall attend school elsewhere to get my lower devision credits, and prove myself, and try transferring into UCLA for my Junior year.

I've already been accepted to WVU, which I should be attending my freshman year. After that, I should transfer to Santa Monica College, and work on getting into UCLA.

Should I be transferring so much? Does it really matter? Or should I go ahead and be going into Santa Monica College?

Being out of school, I have no advisors to turn to.

I Am a College GirlCollapse )

So I did the little bio deal. :)

I was wondering if anyone knew of CampusDirt.com? If you do, do you know of any similar sites?

Or if you don't know of it, any sites that have a bunch of information about a large number of colleges? CampusDirt discusses many aspects of over 70,000 schools - but I don't want that to be my only resource.

Thanks for your time!

How To Study for Finals

1. Sit in a straight, comfortable chair in a well lighted place with notebooks and plenty of freshly sharpened pencils.

2. Contemplate those upcoming finals, to make certain you understand the scope of your obligation.

3. Walk down to the vending machines and buy some coffee to help you concentrate.

4. Stop off at the third floor, on the way back and visit with your friend from class. If your friend hasn't started studying yet either, you can both walk to McDonalds and buy a hamburger to help you concentrate. If your friend tells you he's ready for finals already, drop him/her.

5. When you get back to your room, sit in a straight, comfortable chair in a clean, well lighted place with your notebooks plenty of freshly sharpened pencils.

6. Consider the finals you'll need to take again to make absolutely certain you understand the scope of your obligation.

7. You know, you haven't written to that kid you met at camp since fourth grade. You'd better write that letter now and get it our of the way so you can concentrate.

8. Go look at your teeth in the bathroom mirror.

9. Listen to your favorite CD, and that's it, I mean it, as soon as it's over you are going to start to study for those finals.

10. Listen to another CD.

11. Rearrange all of your CDs into alphabetical order.

12. Phone your friend on the third floor and ask if he's started studying yet. Exchange derogatory remarks about your prof, your courses, the university, the world at large.

13. Sit in a straight, comfortable chair in a clean, well lighted place with your notebooks and plenty of freshly sharpened pencils.

14. Consider again the finals you'll need to take; roll the words across your tongue; savor its special flavor.

15. Check the newspaper listings to make sure you aren't missing something truly worthwhile on TV. NOTE: When you have a final in less than 12 hours, anything on TV from Masterpiece Theater to Sgt. Preston of the Yukon, is truly worthwhile.

16. Catch the last hour of Soul Brother of Kung Fu on channel 26.

17. Phone your friend on the third floor to see if he was watching. Discuss the finer points of the plot.

18. Go look at your tongue in the bathroom mirror.

18.5. Look through your roommate's book of pictures from home. Ask who everyone is.

19. Sit down and do some serious thinking about your plans for the future.

20. Open your door and check to see if there are any mysterious trench-coated strangers lurking in the hall.

21. Sit in a straight, comfortable chair in a clean, well lighted place with plenty of freshly sharpened pencils.

22. Consider the finals you'll need to take one more time, just for the heck of it.

23. Connect to the Internet and see what's new on Ebay.

24. Look through your closet and try to decide what you could sell on Ebay.

25. Scoot your chair across the room to the window and watch the sunrise.

26. Lie face down on the floor and moan.

27. Leap up and study.

What to expect when I get to school
Hurricane Charley really wrecked my campus (University of Central Florida). It even tore part of the roof to the gym (our really, really nice gym will now have to be closed for a few months).


Take a look for yourself. School starts August 23rd and they already cancelled my move-in day (today) since there is no power or water on campus.

Hello Ladies
I was thinking that it may be fun for us to take photos of us on our first day of classes this semester.  If you feel like participating that would be lovely.  :)

grad orientation.
So, I have orientation with the rest of the grad students in my deptartment in about a week, and I'll admit, I'm a little nervous. I'm feeling a little intimidated, like I'm gonna meet all the super smart people. ... And I'm even stressing over what to wear, arrrrgh. I was definitely not like this for freshman orientation 4 years ago.

But, I am looking forward to it. I'm excited to meet the rest of my classmates.
