Hey all, I just couldn't help but post this with excitement -- just informed yesterday by phone that I was given a full tuition scholarship for public interest work at American! I can't believe it. I know some other people were wondering about timelines for scholarships and for American, so here it is. Now I just have to swallow my pride and say no to those higher ranked schools that would dig my grave in debt... right? I hope this is the right decision. It's a gorgeous school with incredibly strong departments in my field, but that old snobbery does keep pulling at me. Support? Am I crazy for choosing a lower ranked school, even with full tuition coverage?
