Additional info & updates

Received my acceptance letter from SIUC on Black Friday! Large white package. No mention of money which doesn't surprise me.

Received a small white envelope from Florida Coastal. Offered 5k a year Governor's Scholarship. Means Tuition would only be 18k a year. hmmm

Well, I made up my mind. I will be in the fall class of 2006 at Southern Illinois University at Carbondale. It is going to be ALOT cheaper for me to attend here.

My goal is to still make it to Florida. I LOVE FLORIDA!

If you are planning on attending SIUC School of Law as well, join my yahoo group. I live by the school and have access to school.

Thanks. I\\\'m sure you\\\'ll get something from FCSL. They send a response about 2 weeks after you submit your application

Hey Hugh, Good luck with fcsl, I am sure you will get in. I was accepted a couple of weeks ago and you have a higher index than I do. Are you still looking at Nove too?

Friday, October 21 2005 at 08:00 PM

thanks man :) I'll be rooting for you.

Sorry to hear about the LSAT requirement being so high for $$$ at Nova, but maybe FCSL will come through with some cash. Anyway, good luck on the rest of the applications. I will be pulling for ya!

FCSL and other schools decisions.

I'm waiting on a couple of schools in Oklahoma, to see if I get offers of admission. It would be quite closer to family if I were accepted to U of Tulsa or Okla City. However, I liked FCSL's bar passage rate and the thought of a new campus. I am going to start making some trips to places I have been accepted to after the first of the year to help me make my final decision. And of course, $$$ will also factor into the decision as well. Good luck on all your remaining apps!

I think you have a pretty good chance to get a scholarship there. Those numbers pretty much match mine. The $10K a year scholarship is the governor's scholarship. Good luck to you, I hope you get it. I declined mine.

That was supposed to say class of 2006. wow.

Friday, September 16 2005 at 08:00 PM
