A frame in which to display the lotto ticket that won me the big bucks because in public interest that's the only way my bucks'll be big.  :D

My letter had no concrete updated information (i.e. you may be interested to know that I won the city debate tournament).  My letter was written from a place of despair and was mostly persuasive passion.  This was my last ditch effort to get to go to Law school where my family lives.  This was my last chance to return to the City in which I grew up.  I, on a deep and meaningful level, wanted to return to Cleveland.  I was rejected at Case and planning on a rejection from OSU.  My only acceptance was to Western New England College and I was feeling extremely anxious about it.  I wanted to make the Dean of Admissions feel the way I did, or at least be compelled by my writing.

Beeline hit it right on the head.  It may work or it may not, but I needed to know that the School had heard the way I felt and really understood it.  My emotions are so much of who I am.  If, after sharing them, a school still does not want me then it simply wasnít a correct fit.

Similar to above.

Letter overnighted on day 1.
Letter recieved on day 2.
Admission letter dated day 3.

Could just be coincidence -- who knows -- but I did it and got in and when I called and spoke with the Admissions Dean she knew me by name.

Good Luck!

Hmm, I had not heard of the Career center move issue.  But, I guess I can't complain about the olden-day look of the main building (especially when compaired with the library) and then turn around and fault them for being desheveled while they remodel.

I too was looking for housing.  I was matching maps with the apartments because I am NOT going to live in East Cleveland... no, no, no, I'm not getting my laptop stolen as I walk home.  But, now that's not an issue.  I just found out this morning that I got the Graduate Student Assistantship I applied for Case Western.  They give you a free apartment, full board, and a monthly stipend.  All I have to do is assist (not work for) them for 10 to 15 hours a week.  So, there was no turning it down.  So, I'll be living at Case Western, I like the Univ. Circle area and it's close to Coventry and that's just my type of scene.  Mmmm, my mouth is watering for Tommy's just thinking about it.

Where are you all thinking of living?

I called today to speak with Dean Stewart about the flood of questions that came to my head after the letter came in the mail.  She said that the picture is just for their records and it did not even matter if they got it now, just as long as they have it before August.  She spoke with me a bit about my LCOP concerns.  LCOP starts on Mat 31.  My UGrad graduated people in at the end of April.  However, I am not going to be done with my BS by then.  So, I have three weeks to complete a religion course and do some papers and the like.  BUT, I won't be graduated, even though I am done, untill August when my Ugrad graduates a class again.  So I have tog et a letter of completion.

I then got transfered to the FinAid office and they said they were going to to have award letters out by the end of April.  Wow, big day, lots of phone work.

Thanks no, that was good stuff.  I am sending my deposit to CSU today... I just have to figure what they want to do with my picture.

Yeah, itís way cool.  All you have to do is pass.  Iím willing place my bets that I donít fail my first class in law school ;-)  Then they have some continued support throughout the years.  I donít know, Iím sort of happy to have all the help I can get in whatever form it comes in.  NE way, thanks man.
