2/15/08 first answer came in. provisional acceptance to Nova's Aample program, but still not a no; so I am hopeful for some of the other applications.
2/20/08 in at St Thomas, there is hope! Got a call at work. Haven't recieved the letter yet but the admissions person said there was a scholarship included in the offer. Every little bit helps!
02/20/08 rejection from Arkansas, not overly concerned wasn't really planning on moving there. :)
02/27/08 Accepted to western new england with a very nice personal email wrtten by an associate professor who actually read and commented on my personal statement.
They invited me to reconsider and apply for full time, stating that I would most likely recieve a nice scholarship to do so. Wasn't really planning on moving unless I had to, but the personal touch is very nice!
02/29/08 Deferred at Miami. I am actually very happy with that as I didn't think I had a snowball's chance in hell at a tier 2 school.
03/05/08 Significant other recieved a job offer in KC Missouri. Sent app off today, way too late in the cycle to really be considered. Hoping they might waitlist me and maybe I can transfer next year. Does it help or hurt your chances to transfer if you have previously applied to the school in question???
3/18/08 follow up email from Western New England College offering me 20k per year if I switch to full time...I really don't want to move to New England but the idea of graduating with out any real debt is tempting...
3/28/08 Letter in the mail from FIU, deferred. I feel like it is late in the cycle for them to defer me.. I am expecting to be waitlisted or rejected there.. But I guess it is good to know I am still in the game. :)
3/31/08 Letter in the mail, waitlisted at Miami. Sent reply card asking for name to be kept on waitlist. Feel silly writing second LOCI, but not sure what else to do..
4/1/08 Withdrew from WNE today. A great offer, but a tier 4 school, 1 hour from Boston doesn't give it very high regional possibilites. Hoping to hear from FIU soon so that I can make my final decision. Oh and also withdrew from Nova. thanks to the feedback from a few fellow LSNers I decided that AAMPLE was a waste of $ for me.
04/07/08 In at Washburn out at STL. I kinda expected the STL rejection. I sent the lesser of the 2 personal statements there and I didn't add the low GPA addendum. You get out what you put in..
04-08-08 Waitlisted at USD.. a happy surprise! I was expecting a rejection at that school... It was a pretty big reach for me. So I guess I can be satisfied with that. :)
4/29/08 IN AT MIAMI!!! OFF THE WAITLIST!!!
5/07/08 Out at UMKC, not surprised, you can't apply the day of their deadline with low numbers and expect an admit. The KC move seems to have cooled for my significant other, and it is looking like I will be attending the "U".
5/17/08 Accepted at FIU. Waiting on Grad Plus loan information from Miami, if all goes well will withdraw from FIU. My cycle is over, went much better than I had expected.
