Thanks! I'm posting my scholarships in percentages instead of dollar amounts, since that's how they were offered. MH offered 30% of tuition.

Hey, congrats on acceptances. When you were accepted at SIU-C, did you receive an email or did your status change to decision made and then you received the decision in the mail? Thanks!
