Additional info & updates

(14) Georgetown
- Applied to joint MA of Arab Studies program 1/15

---------------------------------------
(16) UCLA
- Applied to Achievement Fellowship Program with app
- Under Review 12/11
- WL via email 2/28
- Withdrew 2/28
I feel that I was WL'd because of my decision do disclose my mental health history, and I want to go somewhere where I feel accepted and supported. I also can't afford a $500 seat deposit and to be strung out until summer.
---------------------------------------
(19) USC
- Applied to Rothman Scholars with app
- Under Review 1/11
- WL via email 2/22
- Withdrew app 2/23
Was never all that interested. Was willing to visit and see if that would change my mind but not after a WL and a great offer from UCI.

- Applied to joint MA of Forensic/Legal Psychology early fall
- Under Review 1/11
- Accepted via Email
- Scholly info via email 2/22, selected as one of few Distinguished Decade Scholars

Was shocked and honored by my offer. People with equal/better numbers only got $67k this cycle. They seemed to appreciate me for me, which was huge. I think a lot of personal factors went into this; contact me if you'd like more info.

Have you received your acceptance package yet?

I have not; I will post when I get it though! I'm anticipating 67k from UCI as that's what 2 other people with similar numbers got.
