3/17: Accepted to Illinois with a full tuition scholarship, with more info on the way. I hope that this scholsarhip includes fees as well, since the fees at UIUC are $4,300 per year, which is substantially larger than at other schools.

Did ASU really get back to you in 5 days? That's crazy. I just went complete for Early Admission yesterday

Yes, I applied Non-Binding Early Admission, and they were the first school that I heard back from

You're killing your cycle! Very confused about SLU tho?

I am assuming it is yield protection. On my application I indicated all of the other 18 schools that I was applying to, and SLU was the lowest ranked. I think they assumed, correctly, that they were just a safety school I did not intend to matriculate at.
