    My daughter who has really taken to photography and film was just accepted into Vanderbilt University. She picked Vandy over Stanford and the Univ of Chicago after visiting the campus. I am giving her the camera she asked for for Christmas the E-Pl2. I am hoping she can get involved in photography clubs etc while on campus.

    Does anyone know any college orgs for photography?

    Awesome. What's she going to major in?

    Please be sure that she has not bought in to the "go to college and get a great job" half-truth. The part missing is "getting a degree in something useful."

    No, we have talked about the realities. She is at a much greater advantage than I was when leaving college. I have to pay off my debt and I took a job I thought was temporary that became a career. Now I am not complaining it has been a good life and allowed me to do may things but I did have bigger dreams. My daughter on the other hand has a full ride as long as she keeps her grades up. She is #1 in her class and has ranked in the top 5 in two different world comps in academics. Competing with students from Asia and Europe.

    Wow. Feel free to brag.

    But based on those accomplishments you should at least upgrade her to an E-PL5. :wink:

    God I hope she can do better than MENSA.

    (Doing better being defined as either being smart enough to join a real high IQ society, or being even smarter and not joining any such group at all.)

    Your last alternative is, without a doubt, the wisest!

    And she chose Vanderbilt over Stanford? Was that because Vanderbilt offered the full ride? Just curious...
