Thanks thanks thanks everyone for being happy with me!

For those who asked:

I'm studying social work at Indiana State University. I will work for two years for the Department of Children's Services, which is awesome because that is what I wanted to do even if I didn't get the scholarship!!! The only bad thing is that the says I have to go anywhere in Indiana to work.

I'm still REALLY excited though!

Congratulation, Jana. My deceased Uncle (was born in Canada) and his family were from Gary, Indiana.

I wish you good luck on your success going to college and working with Department of Children's Services.

Actually, I'm hoping that when I graduate I will be assigned to work either in Terre Haute, where I live now, or in Indianapolis. Indianapolis is nice. The size of a big city but it still feels kinda like a small town.

Ah, this sounds similar to the program my nephew went thru. He got everything paid for to get his master's degree in counseling. His only obligation was to work in the field for two years. He graduated last December. He was very pleased with the program.

A lot of his program included internships, which he enjoyed.

If your program is set up in a similar way, then you do have a good deal.

for the wishes!!! I really hope I will not have to work in Gary. I hear it is very very scary now - they have one of the worst crime rates in the USA.

My dad was born and reared on a farm in Sheridan, IN.

I've stayed several weeks over the years in Indianapolis. I enjoyed my stays there.

I drove on Ridge from Highland, IN towards Valaparaiso, IN last week. I got to see first handed how bad Gary is. I would not wish upon anyone to want to work in the area.
