yup pt and ft.
what town is that where you grew up?just out of curiosity, is that scholarship of yours renewable or not?
Yes, but I have to stay in the top 1/3 of my class
wow, brooklyn is tough as nails....
i know of people with a less competetive index scores than yours getting a full ride at schools ranked the same as brooklyn, and they dont have to be in the top 1/3 to keep it.
still though, congrats. top honors is still top honors, right?
Yeh, it is a pretty tough requirement, but I know that I can pull it off. I'm a strong student & I know that I'm willing to put in the effort to be at the top of my class. It's a nice size scholarship, but you're right that there are definitely people with worse stats, but more money. The thing with me was that unless I got into a top notch school, I wanted to stay in the Northeast. Of the schools that accepted me (ie Brooklyn, Fordham, Maryland, Pitt, BU), none of them offered me much in the way of money. Brooklyn was by far the best & I really like the atmosphere. I also didn't want to go below Brooklyn in the rankings. They were my safety. I probably could/should have applied to Cardozo to see what they would offer (being that they are also in NYC & ranked the same as Brooklyn [actually higher when I was applying]), but I grew up in a town that is 60% Jewish, I am not Jewish, & I just didn't feel like going back to the same atmosphere. I'm in the mood for a change, even if I'm only moving 1 1/2 hrs away. So, I'm pretty content with what I got. More would be nice, but this will help keep me from falling too deep into debt.
