理性的抉择



  Mr. Taylor:Well, Linda, I just wanted to ①check in with you and see ②where we’re at on selecting a college.
  Linda:Everything’s going great, Mr. Taylor. I got acceptance letters from three of the five schools I applied to.
  Mr. Taylor: Glad to hear that, Linda. Which schools accepted you?
  Linda: The University of Iowa, Northwestern University, and the University of Illinois. I haven’t heard back yet from Iowa State or Michigan.

  Mr. Taylor: Yes, that’s true. ④I’m hearing a “but”there, however.
  Linda:But I’d really love to go to Northwestern if my family can manage it. They all have good 4)journalism schools, but Northwestern is one of the best.
