04/17/08 Ok I've decided to go to Creighton for sure. Anyone else going to Creighton let me know and I'll see you in Omaha!
04/05/08 Alright finished the cycle with 10-1-1, which is a lot better than I thought I'd do. Remember when I predicted 8-2-2? So now I'm pulling my hair out deciding between Creighton and SIU, which is a classic basketball rivalry by the way. Any comments??
03/19/08 Waitlisted at Kansas.
03/05/08 I called SIU today to check the status of my file and they said that they had a decision that they could give me over the phone. In with $4500 a year! I also arranged a visit and to sit in on a class in a couple weeks.
03/01/08 In at SLU! Very nice news further complicating my decision. I live near the St Louis area too. Oh and I got the nice pen that everyone is talking about.
2/28/08 I haven't updated this little blog in a while. Since the last entry I've been accepted to Marquette and St. Thomas (Mn), still waiting on the rest of my schools, 7-1 now. I also took a little trip to Omaha to check out Creighton. It was a good trip, Omaha seemed like a cool town and I liked everything I saw and heard from the school, definitely a top choice.
2/6/08 I checked the status checker for Illinois online, and glaring at me from the top of the screen was "Denied." Ouch. My first defeat. Oh well, still 5-1 and well over .500 on the season. Got some tough ones coming up though, namely, Kansas and SLU. I'm predicting to finish at something like 8-2-2. Any takers?
1/31/08 Nebraska called today and apparently I'm off the waitlist and accepted. No word on scholarships, I guess I'll find out when I get the letter in the mail. I would be suprised if they offered a scholarship if I'm fresh off the waiting list, but we'll see. By the way, I'm going to Omaha 2/17-2/18 for Scholars Weekend. Anyone else going let me know.
1/28/08 Good day today. Came home to an overflowing mailbox...in at Tulsa with $22000 a year, in at Creighton with $14000 a year, and in at Michigan State with 50% tuition discount I guess around $42000!! Decisions decisions...
1/26/08 Full mailbox today! Got thin white envelopes from Nebraska and two from Arkansas. Nebraska said I was deferred. With Arkansas, one letter said I was in, the other said I would get $8000 the first year. Not clear if that can be renewed the other two years.
1/24/08 Called Michigan St today and they said that a decision on my app has been made and the letter was mailed 1/22/08. Waiting...
1/23/08 Complete at NIU.
1/22/08 Got my username and password to check file status online at UIUC, still incomplete. Complete at Kansas, notified by email.
1/19/08 Letter in the mail, complete at Creighton.
1/18/08 Got a personal email today from Florida Coastal saying I'd qualify for a 15000/yr scholarship. Thats pretty cool to hear, but I could still go to NIU or SIU cheaper. Still no little white envelopes, ughh...
1/13/08 Decided to add U of I to my list, home state, T1, close to home...wish me luck! Also added Marquette and Kansas.
1/13/08 This is a cool site, just found it today. As you can see I've got several apps in and I am now anxiously checking the mail and email every day. Theres a few apps that I still need to complete and maybe a few others that I might throw in.
