Extra Curricular Information


Additional info & updates

I'm currently a (31-yr old returning) undergrad at U Iowa. My major is political science, my minor is computer science. When I attended school back in the '90s I was a computer science major with poor grades. I'm hoping my significantly improved poli sci grades will overcome my LSDAS GPA (crosses fingers for luck).

3/20/08: I got an acceptance phone call from U Minn today. I'm thrilled, but I don't think I'll believe it until I see the packet in the mail. :)

3/25/08: I got an email from U Iowa today congratulating me on admission. I'm very excited, and happy to have a choice to make.

4/8/08: I withdrew my application from Drake today.

4/20/08: Still deciding between Iowa and Minnesota. Minnesota has offered me $8,000 per year, so the price difference isn't that big. I'll be deciding by the end of the month.

5/10/08: I decided to attend Minnesota, so I withdrew from Iowa this week. Good luck everyone on your decisions.

Best of luck from a splitter currently at IA. :)

Yes I'm a (returning, nontraditional) undergrad at UI right now, graduating in May. I finally added the other schools I am applying to as well. Thanks for the good luck wishes.

Congrats! Are you going to attend the admitted students weekend at Minnesota later this month?

Wednesday, April 02 2008 at 08:00 PM

Well, right now I think I'll be going to Minnesota, but I won't be sure until after the preview weekend. Plus, new acceptances or waitlist action might change things.

You ought to see if they have more money available- if that's the only thing making you consider Iowa they could probably give you a little bit more to try and persuade you. (when I was there for admitted students day they said "we aren't sure we can offer more, but at least give us a chance before you choose somewhere else based on money"
