thanks, patentlaw! congratulations on all your fine acceptances, as well :) as to the uva scholarship, i just used "120,000" as lazy, english major shorthand for "whatever $36,800 x 3 is." it is more accurately a $110,000 scholarship, now that i am thinking a little harder about it. are you going to uva asw?
