Additional info & updates

I know that most of these are stretch schools when you look at my numbers. I am hoping that one of them might actually admit me.

Other factors:
first-generation college student
2 LOR's: 1 from manager, 1 from professor
Very solid PS's

1-19-06 Accepted into George Mason. Notified with call from the Dean. Packet to be mailed next week.

1-30-06 Accepted into Georgetown. I am really surpised, by both the decision and the turnaround time. Small envelope.

1-31-06 Accepted into UT. Small envelope.
**Update** Awarded scholoarship. 5,000 per year.

2-6-06 Accepted into UIUC. Notified via email.
**Update** Awarded full-tution scholarship. I never expected anything like this!

2-13-06 Accepted at Northwestern. Notified via email.
This is awesome! Hopefully others, especially URMs, will be encouraged by my results thus far. It's NOT all about the numbers.
**Update** Lots of $$$ offered (3-15-06). I think my interview really helped me to get this. I am definitely leaning toward NW now.

3-21-06 $$ from Duke. 18k/yr for 3yrs

3-26-06 First bad news of the cycle. I knew my streak was going to end eventually. Waitlisted at Columbia through snail mail.

3-30-06 Waitlised at Boalt. I think I am sensing a trend.

4-11-06 First rejection. Can't say that I'm surprised though. Harvard was a long, long shot to begin with.

way to go with George Mason. You will definitely get into many (if not all) of these schools! Those are solid numbers with a pretty challenging major.

Congratulations

on Georgetown!! That is really really awesome!!! Your numbers and your EC's show that you really deserve it!! Did you apply for the FT or PT program??

Re: Congratulations
Wednesday, January 18 2006 at 07:00 PM

Thanks! I applied FT to Georgetown and everywhere else as well.

WOW!

Forget GULC!!! A 3.67 as an engineering major?!?!?! YOU ROCK! ;) Congrats on the acceptance. Always great to see people of color ( and first generation college students) getting in to top schools!

Congratulations

Your record is unbelievable

UT Scholarship
Wednesday, February 01 2006 at 07:00 PM

First off, congrats! My numbers are pretty much the same as yours and I was wondering how long after getting your acceptance offer from Texas did you get the scholarship award notice?

Re: UT Scholarship
Wednesday, January 18 2006 at 07:00 PM

The scholarship notice came about 2 weeks later.

Congrats
Sunday, January 08 2006 at 07:00 PM

on some great acceptances! Any idea where you're headed?

Re: Congrats
Wednesday, January 18 2006 at 07:00 PM

Thanks. I'm still undecided as to where I am going, but I have to say NW is very close to the top.

UIUC
Sunday, November 27 2005 at 07:00 PM

if you don't go to UIUC, is there any way you can transfer that scholarship over to me? Congrats on your acceptances.

Wow!
Wednesday, October 12 2005 at 08:00 PM

I'm impressed at all the schools to which you've been admitted (and more than a tad envious about GULC). Congratulations! Do you still want to be at Northwestern? Good luck whatever you decide.
