2/01 - Sent Letter of Continued Interest to Kentucky. Will make deferred decision mid month.
2/09 - Deferred from Northern Kentucky.
2/10 - Withdrew app from Florida Coastal. Not really interested in a for-profit institution, and tuition is steep even with a scholarship.
2/11 - Visited OCU, very interested. Despite low Us News Ranking, the faculty and staff are very personable and campus is nice. Oklahoma City is an up and coming area as well. Only worried about employment aspects out of Oklahoma City area. Applying for Hatton Sumners (Full Tuition, Book Stipend, Living Stipend) -- will know next month.
2/17 - Deferred AGAIN at Kentucky until March 12th. Deferred at Nebraska until late April.
2/18 - Selected as finalist for Hatton Sumners Scholarship at OCU! Going on campus for an interview next month.
2/28 - Deferred at Louisville. Ouch -- waiting to see what Kentucky, Louisville, & Nebraska will decide on, and hoping hard core to get a full ride at OCU.
03/04 - Withdrew some apps today. It is between Oklahoma City, UMKC, SLU (the acceptances) and UK, Louisville, & Nebraska (the taunting waitlists). Having a final 6 makes me feel a tad more sane!
03/19 - Deferred a third time at Kentucky until next week. Withdrew from Nebraska. Will know about possible full ride to OCU any day now. I will be attending SLU's admitted students weekend, but have no idea how I would pay for tuition. Realistically speaking, I think UMKC is my best bet.
03/20 - Was not selected for Hatton Sumners scholarship. I felt really good about my chances but understand there were others more qualified.
03/25 - Received a 6k/year increase on my scholarship at OCU. Im excited about this and it is nice to know that someone wants me! I will know Friday if I am accepted to UK and next week I'll know about Louisville. This cycle is almost over and I could not be happier about it!! Is anyone else still undecided this late in the game?
04/07 - Waitlisted at Kentucky. Withdrawing from SLU (to expensive) and Oklahoma (don't want to live there). Sent my seat deposit to UMKC today! Louisville and Kentucky are great schools, but I can't wait for them. Was in KC this weekend and found a place to live already. Anybody at UMKC for the fall?
04/22 - Accepted at Nebraska after I withdrew, wierd! UK not using the waitlist this year... so umkc is definately where I will end up pending a miracle scholarship offer from U of L.
06/01 - Accepted to Louisville. Way too late though, try not to think about what could have been with that. Moved in to Kansas City and pumped to start in the fall!
