    My plan to make the best of my preferences

    So, this is where I'm at: I really want to get into UQ. Lots of reasons, don't ask. If I don't get into UQ I want to get into UNE. I don't want to go anywhere else, and I'm quite definite on that. What I want to do is speech pathology, but as it had a cutoff last year of 95, my 81.00 UAI is...
