Sam Webb:  All these schools that you mentioned, they've all offered you scholarships?

David Perry:  "Yeah."

Sam Webb:  When you look at these schools is distance from home going to be a factor for you?

David Perry:  "No sir."

Sam Webb:  When do you think you are going to set your visit plans up?

David Perry:  "I'm not sure.  I have to get with my uncle on that.  Right now we're kind of too busy."
