University of California--San Diego


about 19 hours 10 mins to drive From Irving, Texas to San Diego and is about 1,354 miles. If i had a car that take 25mpg i would need 54 gallons of gas. Also if Gas was 4 dollars when im driving it would cost 216 dollars. But if i took a plane from Dallas Love Field Airport to San Diego it would cost about 310.


A. You decided to buy a lotto card on a whim and won 500.00. Consider this: If you save this money, you will have an extra 500.00 next month for unexpected expenses, or spend it on extra entertainment.

B. Imagine you got a job on campus that pays 8.00 an hour. If yo ucan balance school and work by working 30 hours a week, how much money will you make in a 4-week period?
I will make 960.00 dollars working 30 hours a week for 4 weeks(8 dollars per hour)

C. You were driving recklessly and couldnt avoid the large pothole. Now you are out a tire. You are going to replace in the next month. If the replacement costs 150.00, with taxes, how many hours do you need to work in order to pay for it?
I will need to work 20 hours to pay for the tire. Working 20 hours would give me 160 so i can add up the taxes.

D. Final exam week is coming up and you have to cut back on hours at work. If you work only 12 hours a week for 3 weeks, how much money will you be short?
I would be making 288.00 for working 3 weeks getting paid 8 per hour. I would be short of 672.00

4. In my opinion i would go to SMU for many good reasons. 1 is that i dont have to drive 1300 miles to go to a university in San Diego while SMU is located in dallas. As most of you know i am involved in many sports in my life swimming, soccer, and paintball. SMU is well known for their sports and are in the NCAA division 1. I hope i could get a scholarship for SMU by playing sports. Also i work for my father which i get 12 a hour on the weekend and work at Best Buy on the weekdays. I get a decent amount of money to help me through the bill and food. I just want to go to SMU because i had my mind on it since i was in 7th grade. The school has a good reputation and is 22nd in the nation. That is all i could ask for academics, sports, and Close location.
