Who else will be going to Pitt this fall? I have finally made my decision and will be attending. I am coming from Kentucky and will be going to the open house on April 8th.

I really want to limit my debt. I live in Kentucky so I can go to UK for cheap. I figure that as much as I would like to go to Pitt it doesn't make sense to pay the extra 15,000 per year to go to a similarly ranked school. How did you find out how much the scholarship was for? I couldn't seem to find the info anywhere. THere is an old post on this board somewhere that says it is a full scholarship. Even if it is $10,000 I can add that to the $8,000 I have already been awarded.

Did anyone apply and if so have you heard anything? The waiting is killing me. Without this scholarship I don't think I can afford to go and I am beyond ready to decide where I will be attending school.
I was conflicted about this as well. My mother is panamanian and my father American. Most applications for anything say "white, non-hispanic" or hispanic. I always check hispanic because the first is certainly not true. Also, I identity with my hispanic side of the family more. I don't think any of this is about edge or whatever. In my mind I am answering the question as it is true for me. In this world, however, very few people are "purely" anything. I someone comes from a black parent and a white parent (like my nephew) I think he can put whatever he wants as race/ethnicity. Either white or black would be true. Color of hair, skin, eyes, doesn't matter at all as far as I am concerned.
I got accepted with $$$ but I haven't decided yet. I am leaning towards going to a better school for a little money then Widener for free. I'll be deciding the next couple of weeks. By the way, have you visited the campus? What are your opinions?
