BYU acceptance came email then snail mail. Full tuition renewable
USC Acceptance came in a big envelope very thick. Later in another large envelope came a scholarship offer of 12k a year need and merit based. I wish they would seperate the two. Although USC is a great school and I am happy to receive the offer it is probably not enough to lure me to LA.
Duke acceptance came in an email then a big packet....$25k a lot of money from a top ten, but I was really hoping for more leaving Utah is going to be tough for my wife and me. I actually appealed my scholarship and it was doubled to 50k over five semesters not bad, but I think I hear UVA calling.......Still, it is tempting because well Blue Devil Basketball is pretty awesome
Virginia acceptance was messed up I got info about the admitted students website before my acceptance letter which came in a small envelope. 3/30 I found out via telephone call to admissions office that I have received a $21k per year scholarship. T his very well be enough to lure me away from Utah. I visited. I loved it, but I will miss Utah for 3 years before I can make my way back.
Utah Acceptance came via telephone call from Associate Dean Reyes Aguillar around 5:30 Mountain Time. Later on small envelope $4500 merit scholarship and $4350 tuition waiver. So I guess that is pretty close to full tuition depending on what they set it at this year.
Michigan waitlist came as a surprise in an email. I guess the moral is don't apply so late, write optional essays, and send in fall grades when your applications are still under consideration. That being said I will say THEIR LOSS
Harvard by phone several days after they called to see if I was still interested........ I received the famous red binder shipped priority a couple of days later..... The problem was a 1 bedroom apartment in Cambridge will run me about 1500 per month.....ouch.... unless financial aid comes through I can't imagine a 100k difference in Harvard and UVA, but maybe I am crazy.
Don't you just wish they would hurry up......
