***NOTE: Scholarship amounts are per year.
12/10 - Accepted at South Carolina! They sent the letter (big envelope) to my permanent address for some reason but I think my mom was excited that she got to open it for me. :)
12/31 - Home from break and had a deferral waiting from Kentucky. To be honest, I was surprised it wasn't a rejection based on some other LSN profiles. My file will be considered again in February, so we'll see what happens. Happy New Year!
01/12 - Waitlisted at Loyola Chicago. Hmm. Considering that means pretty much no $$, I think that eliminates LU-C for me but I'm going to stay on the waitlist until I know more.
01/14 - Rejection from the other other OSU. It's okay, I could never have brought myself to cheer for the Buckeyes anyway. (And they really weren't high on my list.)
01/17 - Deferred at IU, application probably not considered again before April 15. I'm both hugely flattered and hugely disappointed. Since Indiana is pretty high on my wish list, I'll probably start begging via another LOR and midterm grades in March. Any other ideas?
01/18 - Tennessee rejection by mail. Not a big shock but still a bummer. Trying to stick to my "make the best of it" mantra after a pretty crappy week...
01/22 - I believe I get the honors of being the first rejection from U. of Nebraska on LSN. I wasn't expecting this one but fine... who wants to live in Nebraska anyway? (10 points for maturity.)
01/25 - Looks like I get to be LSN's first reject for Iowa too! ISIS status checker now says "Not Accepted" instead of "In Progress" so I think it's safe to assume that's a ding. I'm sure there will be something in the mail shortly to confirm. Iowa was always a huge stretch anyway so I'm not surprised. Good luck to everyone else! --- Later: I came home to a rejection from Wisconsin, another big stretch. So much for a lucky fluke!
01/30 - The predicted letter from Iowa arrived. (Small envelope.) At least their rejection was one of those flowery nice ones...?
02/04 - UConn rejection by mail. Small envelope. Morale unfazed.
02/12 - Kentucky rejection after 2nd review. I'll take partial credit for this one as I didn't bother to follow up with a LOCI or anything other than fall grades. Persistence may have helped but the spot is better suited for someone more enthusiastic about UK anyway. Good luck if you fit that description!
02/19 - Georgia reject via status checker. Finally!
03/03 - Waitlisted by UO. My first non-rejection in a month and a half but this stings a bit as I'm an OR resident. C'mon now, Eugene. Guess UO will be added to the list of schools receiving another LOR and midterm grades. Not sure what else I can do.
03/15 - Wake Forest rejection in little envelope. Eh, okay. Over it.
I welcome comments, suggestions, questions, whatever. Hope everyone else's luck this cycle is better than mine so far. :-)
