What about looking for a school with an online program?

I'll have to mirror what someone else said - really think about the future jobs you'd want to have and whether or not you'd realistically be able to hold up to the demands of the job.

As for scholarships, apply for every one you can. Sign up for one of those scholarship search sites and spend a week applying. Many require essays, as I am sure you know, which is good practice for you. Good luck!

For a panicky person majoring in journalism seems like an odd choice. High stress job if you are in a deadline situation. If you become a reporter to have to be in close quarters with others and you have to be sometimes aggressive to get a story. On the other hand if you wanna be a Radio DJ I quess that could work. I don't know you but I think you require constant drama all the time for some reason. If im wrong and you really have a hard time dealing with being out of your confort zone, may be a lab tech or something like that may work for you. I would imagine a lab tech has major confort zone! Lol. A friend of ours recently went to collage to become a vet and was able to take her horse to school with her!
Uhh no. I hate drama. I really do get panicky sometimes. And I find it kind of rude to accuse someone that panics "dramatic." Let me tell you, I wish every day that I didn't have anxiety and that I didn't have to take meds.

As for journalism, just because I have anxiety doesn't mean I can't handle a high-stress job. I like having lots of work. I love talking. And I love writing. Plus, I like to get stories. I like news. Seems like a dang good fit for me.

And no, I don't want to be a lab tech or away from people. I need my own space sometimes, yes, but for the most part, I love visiting with others. Plus, I hate science.

Take no offense to this, but I think you need to read up on anxiety and depression before you judge a person's situation. Over the Internet, it's not so bad, but if you said something like this to someone in real life, I can almost guarantee they'd be very offended or hurt.

Would anyone have any experience or know someone who had an experience with Pepperdine University or Cal Poly in San Luis Obispo?

Thanks for all your input, you guys!
