Acceptances / Re: DePaul $$$
« on: February 01, 2005, 08:54:17 PM »
I have to echo HankieB.... locale doesn't seem to work against you.  I'm in the far southwest suburbs of Chicago and I received the same $8/year deal.  My numbers are slightly lower than HankieB, but close.

When did you apply?  I'm still waiting to hear back from Kent and wonder what the turn-around time is like.

I can't speak for all, but in my case the letter of acceptance included the offer of merit scholarship dollars.
Because the scholarship dollars varied from about 16K/year down to about 4K/year, it would seem that DePaul had a some sort of formula based on GPA and LSTAT.

I understand your frustration.... when I received my acceptance at Michigan State I was hoping to see some merit $$$ but nothing came through with the acceptance.  Maybe later in the cycle these schools will free up some money from withdrawn applicants and start making more merit offers.

Acceptances / Re: Valpo - Unfunded Scholarship Offer

D*mn I've been waiting to hear from Valpo for almost 2 months... and now you say they are already out of scholarship $$$.

Oh well... it would have been nice to consider valpo, it's only 2 hrs from home.

Second Acceptance rolled in today: MSU.  Regular envelope but no merit $$$ :(

MSU doesn't pull a very good USN&WR ranking, but they do have an extensive IP program...
I'm really interested in the school based on the curriculum, it's just going to be hard
to make a decision to pay full-tution dollars at a low ranked school. 

Oh well, I guess we'll wait out a few more school decisions... hopefully I'll get more
good news in the coming weeks.

Hmm... first I got shorted 12K in merit $$$ and then I didn't get the t-shirt!  They may have to throw one of those in before I can accept ;-)

Following-up....

I just received a call from a DePaul professor tonight.  She was calling to follow-up and inform me that I was accepted to the IP writing program.  The personal call was a nice touch.  I'm anxious to see how the other schools will measure-up.  So far, DePaul is impressing me.

How could you not like ancient Greek mythology? I took a more in depth class on Greek religious practices and I found it facinating. What did you major in? Congrats by the way!

I was required to take something in the interdisplinary-study category, and I thought Greek Mythology would be interesting.  Unfortunately, the prof didn't make it very exciting.  I'm sure that under different circumstances I would have enjoyed it.

The class was definately outside of my major... my degree was in Operations Management and Information Systems (Business Major).  

I just picked that one example of a GPA dropper.  There were probably 10 courses over the 4 years that accounted for a sub 3.0 average.  7 of those were first year when I was in way-over-my-head at engineering school and I nuked my GPA.  The others were just 3 ramdom courses where I pulled C's without enough offsetting A's.  I guess given a specific financial incentive, I probably would have pulled those C's to B's or A's.  I just chose to focus on my core curriculum courses and didn't sweat the out-of-major stuff.  I didn't even consider law-school or grad-school back then, so I wasn't concerned about aggregate GPA.

Slightly off topic, but I see that you are in at Toledo.  How long did it take for Toledo to process your app?  I sent mine about a week ago ( I know... it's pretty late in the cycle ) and I they haven't even requested my LSAC report yet.  Most of the other schools pulled the LSAC report within 2 days of the submit.

If you don't mind me asking, for those of you that scored the big cash: 36K, what sort of numbers do you have? 
I'm just wondering how badly my UGPA cost me.  If I would have realized that one or two extra C's were going
to end up being the difference between 24K and 36K, I might have had enough incentive to attend that
Ancient Greek Mythology class :P a bit more often.
