I'm hoping for the best and very excited about the whole process. I like all of the schools I'm applying to, and I would like to be in either Illinois or Minnesota. Also, I'm super nervous!
1/15/08-- accepted to UMN! Yay! What an awesome Human Rights Center. Money is total over three years.
1/23/08-- the waiting game is killing me.
1/30/08-- I got in to Depaul. My first Chicago school! The scholarship is contigent on maintaining a 3.3, so it's not that great. Still, any money is good money. Let's hope some other schools come through with money (and not grade dependent).
2/4/08-- Call from Loyola offering admission! The dean was really nice. She said the letters should arrive soon (though with the local mail, soon is relative). I could be nearing the end of my good news, but it's been nice thus far.
2/6/08-- Official letter from Loyola. They offered a conditional renewable scholarship and a community service scholarship. Yay!
2/8/08-- Officially accepted at Kent.
2/24/08-- The long wait with no news is leading me to believe this will not be good news. Sigh.
2/28/08-- I knew my shot at Northwestern was minimal, but I was still really hoping. I feel so disappointed. I didn't want to have a first choice, but...
3/22/08-- I'm a bit surprised at the hold from UofC. I thought I would be rejected. I am very honored by it.
So the summer has been very exciting. I got a lot of great offers and scholarships. I love Chicago-Kent and think the faculty there is amazing. I did get in to Northwestern very last minute (8/19), and it has been my first choice all along. It's really hard to turn that down, and so I'm saying yes!
