Ivy League Graduate School


I have a bit of an issue. I had trouble adjusting to my first year of university - as in I only took 2 courses in my first semester, but took a full 5 in my second. All else being equal, my academic standing is quite good - I should be coming out of this year with mostly 80s and 90s. Assuming my marks improve with experience and I graduate with a 4.0, how are my prospects of attending an Ivy League School for graduate studies?
This question is being asked with the understanding that I will form good relationships with professors of my field, as well as gain as much experience in my field as possible over the next 4 or 5 years.

Background information:
Currently in my freshman year at U of T St. George.
Planning on pursuing either:
1) A specialist degree in Modern Art History with a major in German.
2) A specialist degree in Middle Eastern Studies, focus on Islamic Art History and Archaeology.

Hi and welcome to LQ,

Not a *NIX related general question. I've asked a mod to move this to the General sub-forum.

Ummm, hello and welcome to LQ!

This forum is for linux newcomers. According to what you have posted, this should be in the "Non *nix" General forums.

Whatever questions pop up, feel free to ask in the appropriate sections.

Thank you, and good luck!

Edit: Druuna, you need to stop beating my posts by a firm minute or two... LOL

Moved: This thread is more suitable in <GENERAL> and has been moved accordingly to help your thread/question get the exposure it deserves.

And since it's SOOOO random (considering the site you're posting to)
I have you on my SPAM radar.

You can avoid those mishaps by simultaneous monitoring of LQ Spy. However this trick won't work for /General!
