    I accidently deleted my applications folder and pressed "Empty Trash" And now I'm getting a new computer from my school, and their doing something with this one. Will they just insert a CD and redo everything for another student and reinstall everything?

    They should be able to restore it. They probably wipe and reinstall it anyway before they give it to someone else.

    Usually your school will probably reimage or use the recovery discs for the computer to restore it for use by another person. Reimaging/reinstalling is the SOP between school terms if it's not an individually owned computer system.
