South Carolina

I was accepted to the U of South Carolina (Columbia) about a month back on an assistanceship which would cover the tuition and give a healthy stipend. Very recently though, I recieved an acceptance from Emerson, where I don't believe I'll get any financial help.
My thought would be to go with South Carolina because of the money factor. It seems like a good program (though fairly new), and I've been impressed by their faculty thus far. But I dont know a whole lot about it. Do you have any information on them that you can offer?

BiF, you know my thoughts about funding vs. non-funding. However, I don't know much about the South Carolina program. I'd go for that one, if I were you, but I wonder if any readers have insights? Please post them in the comments section. Thanks.

Personally I think Tom overemphasises funding, but as has been discussed on this blog a couple times, Emerson's program is in shambles.

It would be one thing if you were debating Iowa with no funding versus SC with full funding. But it seems like an easy call for SC...

Unless the program is really really horrible.

I would definitely go for the SC program. I was hesistant before I went to the U of M for similar concerns about the program, etc, but in the end I got 3 years of doing what I love to do completely free! It was a dream come true, though I wasn't impressed at ALL with the program, politics, etc... It might be worth it to add that I went to the U of M as an "older" student, having already earned an MA in counseling psychology from Antioch Seattle... Hope that helps. Good luck and congratulations.

The first issuie that thomas sabo jewellery online consumers are facing thomas jewellery in India is the narorw range and limited choice of merchandize. Even pandora bracelets the leading sites like ebay.in, indiaplaza.in, indiatimes pandora jewellery or rediff have very liimited range of pandora australia iteems and therefore pandora bracelets are hardly attrractive. I personally searched pandora bracelet many a ties for books and music pandora charms titles amoong other things in the Inddian sites but seldom fouund any thomas sabo australia great product and never thomas sabo excciting prices. In spite of limited rnage still some conssumers want to buy online sabo jewellery just for the sake of convenience but then their expertience is also not good.

Here’s a list of tools you will need to start: Jewelers’ pandora jewellery wire cutters - If you can only afford one pair, get memory wire shears. pandora charms These are designed to make clean cuts on tough memory wire, so can also be used for pandora charms uk softer wires. Chain-nose pliers sometimes called cheap pandora charms needle-nose pliers – Very versatile for picking up and grasping small items, pandora charms sale bending eye pins, closing jumps rings, even closing crimp beads. discount pandora charms Round-nose pliers – Used for creating loops on beaded head and eye pins. Can also be used for winding your own jump rings and as the second pliers you’cheap pandora ll need for closing jump rings. Optional pliers – Wire-looping pliers which have several graduated circumferences to allow you to form perfectly uniform jump rings and loops in place of the pandora discount uk round-nose pliers mentioned above. Crimping pliers which have little notches to allow you to both flatten a crimp bead and then bend it to form a rounded finished look instead of the flat crimp you pandora uk get using the chain-nose pliers. As for materials, I recommend some assortment packs of beads in coordinating colors, some decorative metal spacers, seed beads in both silver and gold These can serve as spacers and beautifully set off pandora sale your other beads., tube-shaped crimp beads Buy the best you can find – these are what hold it all together!, head and eye pins. Other than that, let your choice of project be your guide. You might want some silver or pewter charms.
